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.
