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 Santa Cruz

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.

                                                                      My dog and I and a friend spent 6 days here before Christmas. The beach in this part of Santa Cruz is wide and beautiful, a block and a half walk away. The owner is available on short notice, and very accommodating, he even went out and bought a Roku so we could watch our favorite shows. The cottage is beautifully decorated, had everything we needed.

                                                                      Very enjoyable getaway,!!

The house is comfortable and well stocked with everything you need for a vacation in Santa Cruz and the surrounding area. The beach at the end of this quiet neighborhood has a nice break for boggie boarding and easy surfing. The garden is lovely for reading and soaking in the hot tub. Kitchen is well stocked with supplies and the beds are cozy and comfortable.

                                                                      We can't wait to find a reason to come back soon.

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!

                                                                      Very Relaxing Winter Getaway!

                                                                      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!
