Why John Finch chose Santa Cruz

Santa Cruz is a great town and offers an amazing diversity of activities, has wonderful weather and is just an all around beautiful place. Did I say the people are nice, too?

What makes this house unique

I built this house my self, with all the TLC and custom features that I could come up with. Lots of work but also lots of fun. The house is located in a friendly neighborhood, close to the harbor and an easy walk to the beach. This is a real garden spot as the weather is often warm and sunny, with little fog or wind. It's a very enjoyable place to relax and let time pass by or plan your next adventure...

Fun in Santa Cruz!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second vacation at this house. It is very spacious and bright. The kitchen has extra staples for cooking, the bed is very comfortable, and washer/dryer is conveniently onsite in the garage. The house is located in a great neighborhood, convenient to stores, beach/marina, and walking trails. Great communication. Good value, esp for Santa Cruz!

Lovely house, very peaceful, perfect for couples!

  • 5 of 5

My Fiancé and I stayed at this lovely house and found it to be very comfortable. It is much bigger inside than the photos really show and we had everything we could need (and more) for our stay. There are a lot of different levels in the house and interesting books and objects around which add to its charm and gave it very homely feel The bed was very comfortable and the sitting room area was great to relax and watch movies. it was nice to have an upper balcony from the bedroom which gave an almost 360 view around and the lower balcony was also good to relax on while we barbecued. The house and neighbourhood is very peaceful and perfect for couples - its very close to a nice park and the canal and you can walk right down to the beach. It was so nice we have booked again already and can't wait for our next stay! John is very fast to respond to you and made this a very easy rental so this comes highly recommended.

Caveat renter

  • 4 of 5

Fine place, if designed a bit funky: Neither of the bathrooms is on the bedroom floor. And there is no water view, in case you mistakenly inferred that from all the harbor and beach photos and references. Three days before arrival I heard from the fulltime tenant downstairs, a splendid person, who manages the rental: "[O]ur bedroom is directly below the kitchen/dining area and there is minimal insulation between. Removal of shoes at all times and your conscientious use of the space (particularly in evening through morning hours) and nighttime use of the lower bathroom is truly appreciated." Lastly, the owner told me when I inquired that there was an extra mattress. My brother ended up lugging the heavy and extremely unwieldy futon mattress upstairs from the garage. Otherwise, a fine time was had by all.

Spacious Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for a long weekend with our 10 month old daughter. The house is VERY spacious and well maintained. Our daughter loved the giant tub that connects the living room and bathroom on the main level! The bedroom has its own private deck (with a sink and outdoor shower), but the bathrooms are all downstairs. It should be noted that there are many sets of stairs throughout the house, as well as a stairway entry (luckily our daughter isn't walking yet, so the house was perfect for us). Be careful with food in the kitchen, the ants come quick!

The house is close to everything - we walked to the harbor and beach, as well as a great local coffee roaster - Verve. There is also a park close by. Meadow, the property manager, was very helpful suggesting things to do in the area. The neighborhood is nice and quiet with lots of quirky beach houses. It is a short drive to downtown and there are restaurants and grocery stores everywhere. We also explored Henry Crowell Redwoods State Park for some light hiking.

This house is a great price and a perfect getaway!

restful escape

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent two months here from Feb. to April 2015. We found the place to be quiet, restful, spacious and full of light. The neighbourhood was also quiet, pleasant and safe. The weather was great for us, sunny, warm, without humidity and bugs. Convenient to many things in Santa Cruz without necessarily needing a car. We'll return.

Wonderful retreat

  • 5 of 5

This place is nice, quiet, relaxing. We enjoyed walking to the harbor and being so close to many attractions in Santa Cruz. At night we could hear the ocean, and the seals calling to each other in the morning. The house itself was clean, we found everything we needed and had no problem going up and down the stairs leading to the bedroom. I have to agree that the bedroom needs a fan; it was very warm although we opened the windows. Overall we were impressed with the place and have already recommended it to some of our friends.
