Overview

About the property

Two bedroom, one full bath, sleeps up to six over 8 years old

Sharing Gates by the Sea -

Walk about 60 yards, around the corner, to the warmest beaches in Santa Cruz, including Sunny Cove and Santa Maria beaches. Play in the sand, boogie board, wander a long stretch of beach, explore the tide pools, and enjoy the sunset. Walk to nearby restaurants. The cottage is located halfway between the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, and Capitola Village (two scenic miles each way).

The little beach house...Sharing Gates by the Sea...was once a part of the Victorian resort, the Hotel Villa del Mar, now a retreat center on 19th Avenue. Built in the 1890s, the 580 square foot cottage has personality and charm. The peaked redwood-paneled ceiling makes the living room feel spacious. The cottage sleeps six over eight years old.. There is a queen bed in the bedroom, and a full-size sofa bed in the living room. The private, sun porch room has a double sofa bed, and is used as a small, second bedroom. The cozy garden surrounding the house is fully fenced.

Wonderful cottage by the sea!

This property was absolutely perfect for our mini vacation. It is a close walk to Sunny Cove, Starbucks and great restaurants. The space is perfect and has everything you would need for an overnight stay.

Quiet, relaxing authentic beach bungalow a short walk to 2 beaches

  • 5 of 5

The place was well kept and clean. We enjoyed the quiet neighborhood and both beaches. A bonus, we were able to watch a pod of whales feed for about 2 hours one evening.

Everything was easy to understand in the instructions and the place was as advertised. The bed was a bit firm but in good order. We would love to stay here again.

Cozy Cottage by the Ocean

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this cozy cottage. It was the perfect size for the 4 of us and we loved being such a short walk from the ocean! How lovely to open the windows and hear the waves on the beach!

Quaint little hideaway

  • 4 of 5

This cottage is wonderful and has an interesting history. Once you park your car you can leave it there. Walk to Starbucks, the beach, etc. We used Uber to go down to the boardwalk with the kids and other than that never had to get back in our car. The place is very charming and the perfect spot to relax with a glass of wine and read a book. It is a "cottage" so it is small, but has everything you need to cook, enjoy a meal, relax and watch a movie, etc. I loved the front patio with the beautiful flowers and watching all of the locals walk by in the morning. Only drawback for our group is that you have to go through the master bedroom to get to the bathroom so with 2 teenagers with us that wasn't ideal but other than that it was perfect for a relaxing mini getaway. Thank you to the owner for being so prompt and courteous also. You will see us again soon!

Perfect beach vacation.

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location. Great for our family. I once lived in this neighborhood and it is just far enough away from the noise of the crowds. Very peaceful.

Roaring Camp RR from Boardwalk to Felton redwoods
Car: recommended

Santa Cruz is known for surfing and its historic Beach-Boardwalk, and there is so much more to do here! Within a half hour drive, visit the redwoods, ride the Roaring Camp train through the mountains, go wine tasting, shop in Capitola or at Santa Cruz's unique downtown area, visit the old Spanish mission, eat at unique restaurants, or take a whale watching trip from the Santa Cruz Municipal Wharf. Plan a day trip to Carmel and the Monterey Bay Aquarium, 'The City' -- San Francisco -- is two hours north along the coast or through Silicon Valley and the SF bay area. Enjoy exploring!
