YOU WILL 'SHORE' LOVE OUR FAMILY BEACH HOUSE!
Our 2,100 square foot home caters to families. We have everything you might need for a baby (including a Pack N Play, high chair, and more) or a day at Natural Bridges Beach with your family (including sand toys, umbrellas, cooler, beach chairs, beach wagon for all your stuff and more), which is only a block and a half away and has seasonal lifeguards.
More importantly, with four bedrooms and three bathrooms, we have the perfect set up for a large family traveling with their nanny or other caretaker. On the first floor, you’ll find the main living areas including one bedroom with a queen-size bed and bathroom with a shower. The downstairs also has a spacious dining room, which can seat up to eight people. A spacious living room is adjacent to the dining room with a comfortable family room off of the kitchen.
Upstairs, the two kids’ bedrooms are in the front of the house and share a bathroom. One of the kids’ bedrooms has a single twin bed with a trundle twin bed. The other has a queen-size bed. The master bedroom is located at the back of the house, and it boasts a king-size bed, DVD player, flatscreen TV, huge soaking tub, and plenty of storage.
The backyard is another highlight of the home. It has a full outdoor living area with a gazebo, patio furniture (for both adults and kids), and shower with warm water that you can use to rinse off after a day at the beach. The outdoor living area gets the perfect mix of sun and shade, and it’s a great place to kick back on the weekends or at the end of a long day. The kids can also play in the back yard while you watch from the family room, dining room, or kitchen. The property is located on a safe and quiet cul-de-sac.
As mentioned, our beach house is only a block and a half from Natural Bridges State Beach, which is near scenic West Cliff Drive (great for long walks by the ocean!) and the UCSC Seymour Long Marine Lab. You can easily walk to Swift Street, where you’ll find winery tasting rooms, yoga studios, New Leaf Market (a mini-Whole Foods) and plenty of restaurants. If you’d like to venture further, the Santa Cruz Boardwalk and wharf is approximately two miles away.
