Amazing house, excellent location!
We really enjoyed our time in Santa Cruz. The house is super clean, with lots of space and walking distance to anything you might need.
We had a wonderful 3 night stay for 2 kids and 4 adults at this cozy home last week. It is a comfortable, well stocked and well cared for home that anyone would be lucky to stay in. We plan to return!
Great home. Responsive owners. Perfect for families.
We would do it again and again. Everyone felt at hone.
Pleasant home close to the beach
The home is in a convenient spot being close to the beach and not far from the boardwalk where my granddaughters had a great time. The kitchen was well stocked with pots and pans for the breakfasts and dinners we fixed while there. I recommend the Farmer's Market for anyone who loves fresh fruits and vegetables. The sweet corn was the best I've had this summer!
I would suggest replacing the carpet in the large downstairs bedroom because it's quite stained. There was a leak in the boiler while we were there that caused water to come into a small bedroom's baseboards and made it unusable but I would hope that's been repaired and is all dry by now.
We've stayed here for several summers-- every time it's a great experience!
We really appreciate how well equipped the house is and the location is unbeatable. We'll be back next year!
Wonderful home with plenty of room.
Love this home! Eight adult family members shared this home over a long holiday weekend to celebrate our cousin's wedding. There was lots of room with plenty of towels and linens. And a secured backyard for our dog. Plus access to the beach is so easy, just watch out for the critters visiting the lagoon. Exceptionally clean and well maintained. Would love to stay again!!
Charter services, including fishing, diving, photographic, whale watching and wildlife excursions are available as well as fresh seafood straight from the boat. Check with the Santa Cruz Harbor for more details. Aldo's restaurant is across the harbor just a short 5 minute drive. Aldo's is a local favorite for breakfast with a view. The Harbor Cafe is quite a special catch as well. The sea worthy ambiance, bottomless mimosas and brunch are surely a meal worth writing home about. Of course there are several sights to see at the Beach Boardwalk. There is a new ride this summer called the Undertow! A one of a kind spinning roller coaster. A must see. Downtown Santa Cruz has so many great shops from O'Neils, and Pacific Surf to our favorite Bookshop Santa Cruz. Don't miss Marini's famous salt water taffy and a cup of amazing Santa Cruz Roasting co. coffee.
