About Karri

We enjoy hosting couples and families at this house. When you book, please share your interests so we can create a customized arrival package for you. Many of our guests are families with two or three generations traveling together, and others are just couples. We've met so many wonderful people over the years, and are happy to share this special home with others. We look forward to hosting your stay at this oceanfront home at the beach in Santa Cruz!

Why Karri chose Santa Cruz

We like the west side of Santa Cruz - it's friendly to people and dogs, with easily accessible beaches, coastal sidewalk, and forever views. We especially like the feeling of being on the ocean, the gentle breezes, and ocean sounds - especially during the wintertime. Storms can be magical at the coast. Fall is also a wonderful experience with less morning fog and sun early in the day.

What makes this house unique

We enjoy watching people walk their dogs, ride bikes, roller skate, jog, and skateboard along West Cliff Drive. The ocean views from the living room, kitchen, dining room, breakfast area, and even the backyard are wonderful. We also enjoy strolling along the paved ocean walkway to the Lighthouse Surfing Museum to watch the surfers, and beyond to enjoy the Santa Cruz Pier and Beach Boardwalk. This beach house is centrally located, and is great for people of all ages.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for another wonderful week at the beach in Santa Cruz. The new living room furniture is super comfortable, exceptionally supportive, and very easy to keep clean (leather is great at the coast!). We spent hours reclined watching the waves along West Cliff. This was the most relaxing trip of the year. We appreciated the updated kitchen and very organized drawers. Everything was top notch. As always, we will return and continue to refer our family, friends, neighbors, and coworkers. You do an amazing job.

Perfect stay in a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our time at this home in Santa Cruz. The home is across the street from the ocean and walking paths. The beds were comfortable and the neighborhood peaceful. We look forward to returning soon! Thank you!

Sunset at the Beach

  • 5 of 5

3 couples stayed at this house comfortably. There was also a sofa bed. Wonderful corner location on the Cliff Walk complete with crashing waves and sunset views. We had a great time! There's a quiet, cozy, interior courtyard with fire pit, umbrella table and bistro table. The biggest impatiens I've ever seen grow around the garden. Wine tasting, bakery, and shopping-just up the street. Located halfway between the lighthouse and Natural Bridges makes walking along the cliff enjoyable in either direction. It would have been nice to catch the butterflies in action but alias, they flew out early this year. Maybe next time! Definitely going back!

Santa Cruz Beachfront House

  • 5 of 5

This house was spectacular from its views of the ocean to its easy breezy feel inside the house. First off, the living room has a wonderful view out the front to the water and a wood fire place which adds for extra ambiance! Then the bedrooms were a great size and the master also has a wood fireplace as well. The kitchen was equipped with everything you needed to create a spectacular meal and the dining room had plenty of room for everyone!! And then, if that wasn't great enough, the outside courtyard is totally private and has bbq and firepit and sitting areas and was wonderful for creating your own unique space. This place is perfect for adults, families with kids, or just a couple's getaway and I would go back time and time again!! Thanks for an amazing and relaxing getaway!!!

Amazing View, Cozy Home

  • 5 of 5

Had an excellent stay here with my friends, and we all loved it. It's a perfect location for ocean lovers and was a prime hub for our activities along the Central Coast. Moreover, the home itself is very cozy and left me feeling safe and relaxed each night. 10/10

Owner's Response: Upon arrival, this guest walked through the home with management expressing their appreciation for the views and professional presentation. Had cleaning been an issue, the home would have been immediately re-cleaned. We contract cleaning with a professional service that is very responsive. Our guests know we are available if needed anytime during their stay. In fairness to all, we would have appreciated the opportunity to hear from this guest during his stay, in time to address any concern, rather than to read about it several weeks later.
