Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

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.

Why the Owner Chose Santa Cruz, CA, USA:
We love the Santa Cruz vibe and hope to retire here. Our favorite childhood memories are of the beach and boardwalk at Santa Cruz.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
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.
