About Marie Lore
We love our beach house and are excited about sharing it with others. We hope they enjoy it as much as we have. We have been married for over 50 yrs. and have 3 married children and 7 grandchildren. Rick has been in the construction business for most of his life and I am an active real estate agent for Alain Pinel Realtors in Saratoga. We live in Los Gatos, a short trip over the hill from Santa Cruz.
Marie Lore purchased this Cottage in 1990
Why Marie Lore chose Santa Cruz
We bought this home many years ago as a rental for college students. We always hoped we would be able to rebuild it for ourselves in the future. It was a great dream come true when we completed the remodel.
What makes this Cottage unique
We love that we can walk everywhere from this home. The popular Twin Lakes beach is just a short block away. Bon fires light up the beach in the evening, sail boat races can be viewed from our deck, and lively beach volley ball games are a common occurrence. Don't miss the ukelele concert on Saturday mornings in front of the Java Junction. There are excellent restaurants within walking distance. We especially enjoy the Crows Nest upstairs on Weds. night when the sail boat races are taking place. Johnnie's Harborside, the Java Junction, El Palomar, and Lago di Coma are also favorites of ours. Deke's market on 7th Ave. is a great place for sandwiches and various grocery sundries. There are public tennis courts and a great kids park a few minutes away on 7th Ave. We also enjoy walking and riding bikes on the harbor road where the sea otters, seals, and pelicans are always entertaining. The Santa Cruz Beach Board Walk is a 5-minute drive away with the famous wooden roller coaster and many other thrilling rides for all ages. A 18-hole minature golf course at the boardwalk is also a good way to spend an afternoon. Downtown Santa Cruz and Capitola nearby offer unique shopping opportunities, movie theaters, and other excellent restaurants.

Great family beach house!!!
This is the best house we've stayed at in Santa Cruz! Great location, well appointed with fun kid stuff, and is obviously taken care of better than most rentals. The kitchen equipment (pots, pans, utensils, etc.) were good quality (the knives were actually sharp!), and it had everything we needed for all of our cooking and grilling. It's very light and bright and comfortable and we hope to stay there again soon!
Great house for families.
Right at home
Our family just loved this cozy beach cottage. Cute, clean, comfortable -- we felt immediately at home. Our hosts thought of everything, right down to the water bowls on the porch for our two dogs. Our teens loved hanging out in "their" basement, while the adults had plenty of space to stretch out, too. That is, when we all weren't walking down to the nearby dog- and- family-friendly beach, with its view of a stunning lighthouse. Back at the cottage, The Spouse fired up the grill, while I couldn't resist firing up the laptop. The wifi worked great! All in all, the place is a winner. We definitely hope to return!
Thank you so much for taking time out of your very busy lives to write this nice review. It is most appreciated. I do hope you come back soon!
Perfect Santa Cruz stay
This house was great! Clean (and I am super picky), updated, close to the beach (just down the street and across a main road - use the crosswalk, no biggie!), and in a quiet neighborhood. It was perfect for 4 adults, a 6 year and our fur babies! Marie was amazing with her communication and willingness to help in any way that she could! Everything you need is in the house, including beach toys! And, you can walk to restaurants if you want to eat out! Perfect location for a quiet, cool (it's 108* where we came from), and relaxing trip! We will definitely be back! Thanks Marie!!
Santa Cruz family stay, in reach of the beach!
Beautiful home and comfy beds and could hear the ocean waves from each bedroom window. Lovely!
Thanks for taking the time to send in a review. It is most appreciated.
Great location, wonderful property.
Plenty of space for our family of 5 plus our pup. Very walkable neighborhood. Marie's home was well stocked and clean. The kids are already making plans to return!
Thank you so much for taking the time to give us a favorable review. We are always happy to hear that others enjoy our home as much as we do!
The Montery Bay Aquarium is approx. a 45-minute drive from our home. Two guest passes are available at the house.
