About the property


This Sunday through Thursday night is only $199 plus fees. That's 50% off the normal weekday rate .

Full sun facing backyard, where you can entertain your family and friends, barbecuing, relaxing in the hot tub, roasting marshmallows in the gas fire pit while surrounded by beautiful mature tropical landscaping.

The best location in town. 1 1/2 blocks to Natural Bridges State Beach Park. (famous for thousands of monarch butterflies) and a two mile walking/bike path along the ocean called "West Cliff'"

Let the good times begin, with the large collection of beach gear & sports equipment in the garage. No need to lug around your baby gear. I have it all at the house. (see photos)

Located in a small quiet court which is safer for children, quieter and more private than ocean front homes which have cars and people constantly going by. Plenty of parking.

Very well stocked kitchen with top of the line appliances. Large living room with vaulted ceilings, 8 seat dining table, & huge couch. Very spacious inside. Large HD flat screen TV in living room and master bedroom. Personal WIFI in house and yard. Redwood Outdoor table. Game table and gas fireplace in the family room.

The house is very safe with smoke detectors, carbon monoxide alarm and fire extinguisher. Everything in the home is well maintained and up to code.

I personally go to the vacation home between guests to insure it's in top shape. I want to give you the ultimate vacation home experience! If you compare my rates and fees to similar quality rentals you will find mine are a better deal.

Please no loud day or night parties. Susan my neighbourhood host lives in the neighborhood and can assist with problems that might arise with the home. She will drop by and introduce herself, you can ask her questions about the home or get recommendations on places to see.

Check out the swift st. courtyard fine dining, wine tasting and The Santa Cruz Mountain brewery where the locals hang out. Only minutes away.

There are always fun events happing in santa cruz

About Geoff Call

I grew up in Cupertino and moved to Santa Cruz in 1994 after graduating with a business degree from Western State Colorado University. I was attracted to Santa Cruz because its a fun town and has a lot to offer such as world class surfing, mountain biking, great live music and of course the beach and redwoods. I lived in the beach rental for 15 years and loved it. I wanted more of the country life style so I moved 15 min away to Bonny Doon in the Santa Cruz mountains on some acreage with my family.

Geoff Call purchased this house in 1997

Why Geoff Call chose Santa Cruz

The location of this property is perfect. It's close to the beach. You can walk across the street into Natural Bridges State Park & hike/bike nature trails at Wilder ranch. In the fall you see thousands of Monarch Butterfly's, some fly around in the backyard. It's close Highway 1 North which is surrounded by undeveloped landscape with nice beaches, surf breaks and dramatic cliff's that overlook the ocean. It's one of the most beautiful drives in the world.

What makes this house unique

The backyard faces south. It gets full sun. The neighborhood is not congested like Eastside Santa Cruz and Live Oak. You can park your car at any hour and not have to worry about finding a parking spot. The back yard is perfect for a family gathering. BBQ, Relax in the hot tub, gather around the gas fire pit at night while surrounded by mature tropical landscaping.

The subzero fridge in the kitchen is very large and will hold your big Costco shopping sprees. The Viking range and oven is very solid and will meet you cooking needs.

I offer more beach gear, sports equipment and baby items for your use than most other rentals. For children there is a two high chairs, Bob stroller, car seats, pack and play, childrens bikes/helmets, booster seat, sand toys, beach wagon, baby gates and a child bike carrier. For the beach, Surf boards, body boards, bikes, coolers, beach chairs, umbrella

Guestbook comments from the owner

Had a fantastic time at Geoff's Ultimate Beach House. Stayed there with my family while our house's bathroom was being remodeled on the other side of the hill. It was great to experience living on the coast for a few days. Thanks Geoff and your family for such a nice place.

Perfect Beach Getaway with All the Amenities!

  • 5 of 5

My childhood best friends and I wanted to get away for a few days together as we all live quite far apart. I am so grateful we found this house. It was absolutely perfect! I love to cook, and I had hoped the house would have a decent kitchen and dining area for lots of shared meals. My expectations were wonderfully exceeded. The kitchen was gorgeous! The Wolf stove was glorious! And there was room for my friends to hang out while I cooked. The backyard is fantastic with a gas grill, gas fire pit, and a beautiful hot tub. The sound of the ocean a bit over a block away just topped it off. All of the bedrooms were well appointed and comfortable. There were even some bikes in the garage.There is a delicious French bakery, brewery, restaurants, and a great New Leaf Market a short walk away. The location is phenomenal. I wouldn't change a thing. I hope we get a chance to go back again. I want to go back already!!! It was a perfect getaway!

Great Weekend get away!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful location, great for families with kids. The enclosed play space in the back yard was excellent for the little kids and the Foosball in the garage was perfect for the older kids. Loved how walk-able this house was to everything. Thank you for a great week-end!

Amazing location!

  • 5 of 5

Loved this house -great location just a short walk to the beach and to West Cliff Drive. Also walking distance to shops and wineries. The kids loved the fire pit and hot tub. The house is very spacious -it didn't feel crowded at all for 11of us. The bathrooms are a bit dated but clean. Geoff is very responsive and refunded our deposit just a day after check out -I didn't have to follow up or ask! We will definitely come back again.

GREAT family vacation rental !!

  • 5 of 5

Property was exactly as advertised - and the information provided before booking was extremely detailed and complete. We rented over Labor day weekend to celebrate a family birthday. Our group ranged in age from 2 years to 70 years - and everyone was happy. Beds were comfortable, kitchen very well-equipped, hot tub and fire pit were wonderful to have - the parents could sit around fire pit and talk after the little ones were asleep - and the kids enjoyed making s'mores too.

The place is exactly 1 1/2 block from a great beach - we went back and forth a lot.

The weather was unusually warm (Santa Cruz never gets very hot - but this weekend it did). - and when we contacted the owner and the local property manager, they were really nice and ran out to buy us fans - which worked great to cool off the bedrooms so we could sleep. Amazing customer service!

We would be happy to stay here again - were sorry when it was time to leave.

Very Nice Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The house is in a residential area, a short bit away from the boardwalk. Family enjoyed walking to Natural Bridges. The house is roomy. We had family drop by to visit and we never felt crowded. We enjoyed the hot tub, fire pit and outdoor eating area. Appreciated the prompt communications.
