Overview

About the property

Designer Home, Oceanview, Steps to Twin Lakes beach, Hot tub, Wifi. near Harbor

Santa Cruz Ocean View Home: Located only one block from the beach, this is a two-story, designer home with an open-architecture style and cathedral type ceilings. Big windows and a gridwork of glass allows in plenty of light. The upstairs bedroom opens to a private deck from where you can view the ocean. Downstairs, a large wraparound deck, bathed in sunshine overlooks a stunning garden filled with beautiful plants and rocks and a bevy of doves, finches, blue-jays and red-winged blackbirds. Garden lights beam up the trees at night and summer nights provide an occasion to sit in the hot tub and enjoy the clear starry nights in complete privacy.

This home sleeps 6 with two bedrooms, a large open living space (living room & kitchen), one large bathroom and plenty of patios. The living room has a sofa and a comfortable chaise that can double as sleepers. The upstairs bedroom has a queen bed and a day-bed, comfortably sleeping three. There is also a single stowaway bed and a foam mattress to use on the floor. The tropical secluded backyard has a large wraparound deck, a hot-tub with two chaise lounge-chairs, an outdoor hot & cold shower, a BBQ and a marble-top dining table & chairs.

Why Shyamal chose Central Coast

One of the very rare, spacious lots on the street, it has two magnificent trees, a large wraparound deck, spacious backyard with tropical plants and a uniquely-styled house with cathedral ceilings. It was originally built in the 70's with recycled wood from a barn in Iowa, giving the house beautiful definition and an impressive beam structure. Finally, it is located in the most desireable parts of Santa Cruz, just steps from Twin Lakes beach and a short walk to the Harbor.

Unlike many beach dwellings (that feel cramped), this large lot offers plenty of room for a spacious home (1400sqft), a large wraparound deck (600sqft) and a sizeable garden providing one of the best indoor-outdoor living in Santa Cruz.

In addition, the unique cathedral ceilings, open-concept living area and large windows fill the house with light, providing a spacious and warm welcoming feeling. It is so close to the ocean that you can see it from the doorstep.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I have stayed at Seaside Haven in 2008 and 2011.

The garden at Seaside Haven is magical. A spacious deck wraps around

the back of the house. A few steps down the garden wraps around the

deck, replete with huge jade plants and wildflowers. Ensconced in the

deck is an ample hot tub/ Jacuzzi. Lying there one has perfect

privacy, and looking up one sees the branches of a huge cypress tree

arching over from the garden. The house is magical also – all dark

wood with a high cathedral ceiling. Step out the front door, look

left, and one sees the sea shining in the near distance. Open a

window upstairs and one hears the surf. For me, Seaside Haven is the

heart of Santa Cruz. LB (Vermont and New York)

Well appointed house. Very short walk to the beach to watch a beautiful sunset. Hot tub was amazing! Conveniently located for shopping and sight seeing. We would certainly stay here again ❤️

Exceptional!

What a gem! I came to Santa Cruz for work and brought my 2 kids with me. This house was perfect. Great location, awesome back deck with hot tub, and everything you need to be comfortable. Owner was quick and easy with communication. Would definitely stay here again!

We are coming back!

  • 5 of 5

We are five best friends who take an annual trip every spring together. We just booked this house for the second year in a row and it might become our tradition! The kitchen and living room areas had plenty of room for all of us, the beds were comfortable, and the hot tub and yard are so peaceful. Plus the beach at the end of the block was great! Last year we didn't use a car the whole weekend; I imagine this year will be the same :)

Very Relaxing Winter Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I had a really great time at this house. The interior of the house is beautifully decorated and lets in a lot of light. The yard is gorgeous, even in winter, with a large heritage tree and many flowering plants and visiting birds. Despite the rain, I had a really enjoyable time! I needed a solo retreat to both relax and catch up on grading papers right before the end of the semester. I can well imagine coming back soon to do more relaxing in the great hot tub and maybe even work a bit on my dissertation! This is an amazing house and garden, almost reminds me of being in a Zen center! But I think it would also be great for couples and families. It is very quick walk to the beach as well. This was my first time here; the owners were very welcoming and responsive; I hope to be a frequent return visitor and I highly recommend it!

Very sweet 16!

  • 5 of 5

LOVED the house!! I don't know how you and Joanna don't live there all the

time! We enjoyed our stay and the weather was perfect for my girl's sweet

16. Amazing sunsets every night due to the closeness to the beach- then on to the hot tub! I enjoyed listening to the ocean from the upper deck. The fresh flowers

and eggs were a very nice touch. I hope to be back very soon.

Pleasant weekend get away

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent an anniversary 3-day weekend here. We have stayed in the SC area and other coastal towns using VRBO several times. We were very happy with our experience here. The house and amenities are just as described. The location is also great. Walking distance to the harbor and a nice beach with nightly activity. Our young adult children joined us for a night and they also thoroughly enjoyed the house, area, and especially the hot tub! I would definitely recommend this rental, think it is a great value, and will most likely be back again.
