About Suzanne

We are two families that jointly own the property. We all live in Bay Area & love to come down to Santa Cruz for relaxation and beach fun. Between the 2 families we have 4 x boys and a girl, ranging from 4 years old up to 12 years old. We often go together as there is plenty of space for everyone.

Suzanne purchased this house in 2011

Why Suzanne chose Central Coast

This area of Santa Cruz is very desirable due to it's proximity to all the area's sites. The neighbors are really nice, many of them full-time residents who look after each other's homes.

It's close to the Sunday's Farmer's Market and a short bike ride to Capitola and the Boardwalk. Plus the beach at the end of the street is fantastic.

What makes this house unique

The property is actually two units combined. This is perfect for two families or groups as there is space to spread out. The garden is very well-maintained and often has blooms of rose bushes, a lemon tree and an outdoor shower. Sunsets from the top deck are epic, while a cup of coffee on the lower deck is a wonderful way to kick off your day.

Lovely home

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful place to stay. Wish we had planned to stay longer. House had everything we needed and more.

Drawbacks: limited privacy, only 2 actual bedrooms, small bathrooms, lots of burned out light bulbs.

The house was ideal for our group and in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful girls' trip at the beach house. There were 10 of us and the accommodations were perfect and allowed for everyone to have their own space and spread out. The weather was crazy so we enjoyed hanging out & being cozy at the house. We explored the beach a bit when the weather allowed, went into Capitola and enjoyed the awesome shopping & restaurants in Santa Cruz.

Having the 2 kitchens was great as we brought a lot of food & utilized both fridges :)

The beds were comfortable & everything was clean. Thank you Suzanne for an awesome rental experience ❤️

Santa Cruz at its Best......

  • 5 of 5

In spite of the weather!

Our stay at your home was the epitome of Santa Cruz living! The home was beautiful as the typical beach bungalow having been expanded to welcome even more to stay. It was quaint, it included all of the modern day enhancements such that all of us former SC residents could celebrate our past memories of living in this beautiful beach town. The weather didn't play out as we expected, as an intense storm was there for the weekend. We made the most of it, however, being able to walk to the beach and enjoy the beauty and intensity of an angry ocean, followed by the warmth, light and enjoyment from the return to your home. The home provided the setting for us to celebrate our time together for our particular gathering in a joy filled manner. Personally, I could certainly see returning to take full advantage of the amenities and beach toys on a beautiful summer day.

Thank you for sharing your home!

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

We had our girls weekend there this past weekend. It is a great place, lots of space, well equipped and just a block from the beach. Easy access to the main part of Santa Cruz, but far enough away to be quiet. Cute restaurants nearby and a small but nice Farmers Market on Sundays just a short walk away.

Great summer trip!

  • 5 of 5

First time renting online & everything went smoothly. Suzanne was very quick with any questions. We were amazed with the house & how the garage was fully stocked with umbrellas, boggie boards, bikes, chairs & a red wagon to carry it all in! With the beach just 1 block away, kids, grandkids & us had a great time! We will definitely rent this house again!

Wonderful Location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beach cottage in June for our family reunion during Father's day weekend. My parents, an elderly couple stayed in the bedroom on the bottom floor and had their own bathroom in the hallway, steps away from their room. Another couple had the upstairs bedroom, also with a bathroom steps away from their room. Both rooms were very comfortable. My husband and I opted to stay in the bunk room and we put mattresses on the floor and slept fine. The bunk room is not ideal for someone who has mobility issues. It has steps going down to the room and the bathroom is tiny although it is a full bath. There isn't a door for the bunk room- we put up a 'curtain' to give us privacy.

The amenities and the location was worth putting up with a few inconveniences. This cottage has everything you need for the beach- it's unbelievable. The most amply supplied vacation stay I've had in all my experiences with vacation rentals. It is spacious and all of us had plenty of room without getting in each other's way except for the kitchen which can get crowded if there are too many cooks at once. There are two kitchens but the downstairs kitchen has more supplies.

The location couldn't be better! It's on a quiet street that ends at the beach entrance. The next street over also has stairs to go down to the beach. My parents took daily walks during their stay and enjoyed the short, easy walk to the ocean. The beach is less crowded than Seabright and clean.

The owner, Suzanne always responded quickly and was extremely helpful and a gracious host. I can't say enough great things about her and her beach cottage. This was a perfect place for our family reunion. Everyone in the family was happy and we would/will stay here again for our next reunion!

Tip: This place is near to the Sunday Farmer's Market- you can walk or ride your bike to it.
