Located at sea-level among giant cypress trees in a very tranquil oceanside setting. Rooftop Deck has a HOT TUB overlooking the beach and ocean. A two minute walk along a footpath along Moran Lagoon leads to beautiful Moran Beach (which can be followed up the coast for about a half mile).

This Modern House has undergone extensive year-long remodeling including an entirely brand new gourmet kitchen, three new bathrooms, new living room linear gas fireplace and oak wood floors throughout the entire house. This two-story, three bedroom, two and a half bath, colorful stucco beach house, just repainted interior and a large skylight in the main living area. New Modern cleanline furniture. Original contemporary large oil paintings. This home is in great condition and has a lot of natural light inside. The house is on a quiet, private street lined with old cypress trees. A very short walk along Lake Moran goes to the beach. A very tranquil experience - like being in a tree-lined park.

Beds are one queen in master suite, one queen bed in back bedroom, and two twin beds in the third bedroom. SLEEPS 6.

Second upstairs bathroom has shower/bathtub combination and has just been remodeled. Third downstairs bathroom is a fully remodeled half bath without a shower/tub.

Neighborhood is friendly and casual. Kids can walk around easily to the park, beach or local neighborhood market. Lake is a 1 minute walk; 2 minutes along the lake on a footpath puts you on Moran Beach. It is all at sea level with very easy access. Also,the area is perfect for a coastal bike ride or stroll as there is a paved path at the end of the lake leading to a bike path to Pleasure Point and Capitola.

                                                                My daughter and I always run the Wharf to Wharf race and this year we decided to rent a house and stay a week. Two weeks prior to the event, the original rental cancelled on us. This event sells out so when the renter cancelled, we thought we were out of luck. Started searching for a replacement and found this property and it was available. Thought there must be something wrong with it since it hadn't been rented. What a surprise when we arrived and found a wonderful house, well stocked, comfortable, close to the beach and the race course so family and friends could come out and cheer us on. We had 2 toddlers with us and they had a ball. The backyard was just the right size for them and they enjoyed the roof top hot tube (as did we all). We all had a fabulous time. Would recommend this house.

                                                                3 Week Stay in Lakeview


                                                                We are a family from Ireland with 3 teenage children. We rented this property for 3 weeks in July 2011.

                                                                We were extremely happy with our stay. The description of the house was 100% accurate and our interaction with the owner was efficient and very professional. The location of the house is excellent, it is

                                                                almost on the ocean and is conveniently located between Santa Cruz and Capitola. I would highly recommend this rental.

                                                                Great Location, comfortable home

                                                                The home is as described, and turned out to be the perfect vacation house for us, a family with a toddler and a mother-in-law. The owner, whom we never met, was a great communicator via email. He also returned our deposit within a week and provided us with tons of different contacts in case anything went wrong or was not to our liking before we got there. We didn't have any problems but it was certainly a relief knowing we were taken care of. The house had lots of natural light, with fun art on display and modern decor. I sometimes wished there were blinds downstairs but felt the home was private enough not to really require it. And the beach was a super short walk and really family and surfer friendly.

                                                                A Great Beach Get-Away

                                                                Just what our family was looking for in a beach get-away. Located in a friendly, quiet neighborhood complete with a roof deck hot tub. And so close to the beach. The kids loved the very short, easy walk to the sandy beach. The parents loved sitting in the hot tub at night listening to the surf (so relaxing we found it hard to leave.) The house was impeccably clean, well kept and had everything we needed for our stay. We were also close to many of the the highlights of the Santa Cruz area. The owners made every part of our rental experience easy. We will definitely stay here again if/we travel to Santa Cruz.
