About The Owner

Sisters Kim and Pam bought this adorable bungalow as a family project. We've lovingly updated it and look forward to sharing it with guests as well as our families.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2011

Why The Owner chose Central Coast

We love the Santa Cruz vibe and hope to retire here. Our favorite childhood memories are of the beach and boardwalk at Santa Cruz.

What makes this cottage unique

A morning walk with the dogs to Java Junction for a latte at the beach. Watching the beach wake up and start populating. Or coffee in the garden, reading the paper and watching the birds.

Just Like Home but BETTER!

  • 5 of 5

What I loved the most about Kim & Pam's home is the attention to detail. Leading up to our stay, our 2.5 year old was excited to see "octopus pillows" and "sea star blanket" that she saw in the pictures. The home has a very beach house feel and every part of the it from the decor, to the yard and string lights, to the livingroom seating to the plush bedroom linens are there to remind you to relax, take a seat, enjoy your stay. Everything you need to grill out or cook in is available. Towels and linens are plentiful and the location is perfect! We have a 7 month old and 2.5 year old and it had everything we needed to make sure the kids were comfortable and entertained. The walk to the beach is less than 10 minutes. We found the boardwalk too far for our family to walk to but it was a short drive away. The location of the house is perfect for day trips around the area. We managed to go to Monterey, Capitola, Roaring Camp Railroads, Natural Bridges State Park, and a few other spots that we found brochures for in the home - thanks again Kim & Pam. We hope to be back again soon.

A keeper!

Most excellent in all ways. The doggo and teen girls felt right at home. The yard, patio, and deck are so comfortable and a wonderful extension to this charming cottage. Thank you.

Family recharge

  • 5 of 5

So, I'm not usually one for writing reviews (this is my first one) but wanted to make an exception here as my family and I had such a fabulous time.

From initially requesting the booking on VRBO through to our arrival and the cottage itself everything was great. Kim is so easy to work with, and welcoming. When we arrived there were S'mores ingredients for the kids and treats for the dog. Kids were ecstatic! The cottage is adorable. The yard is PERFECT, especially as it is completely fenced in, and the beach is just down the road.

Having arrived back home I think we've all put this vacation down as our best ever, Kim, Pam and their beautiful property played a big part in that.

We will definitely be back!

Private Cottage with incredible yard

  • 5 of 5

We just loved our stay here. The place is so cute, really clean, perfect location! They have everything you need for a bbq party or a lovely dinner for two. The location was great for us, close to the Harbor,Boardwalk and close enough to downtown too. We will be back, I need to get back in the hammock. Thank you Kim, you were a great hostess. See you soon.
