Overview

About the property

3br/2ba Close to Beach, Sleeps 13 (5 beds + 4 sleepers/futons)

Second house from the sand! Walking distance from restaurants, nightlife, cafes, sailboat/kayak rental, beach volleyball, and more. The place also has a spacious patio with ocean view and a BBQ. Listen to the sounds of the beach while barbequing.

This beach property is located just 50 footsteps to one of the family friendly and picturesque beaches in Santa Cruz. Twin Lakes Beach is a gorgeous sandy beach with nearby restaurants and a coffee shop. There are local venues for entertainment and fire pits on the beach at night. We have added a lot of our own personal touches to the place--we are especially fond of our 'beach glass' floor before the den. We have heard that the place has a real 'beachy' and local Santa Cruz vibe to it.

Why Kate and Dave chose Central Coast

We really wanted a little getaway in Santa Cruz where we could get away from it all and just relax. This place was perfect! It has a patio deck, putting green hole, and a little croquet set in the backyard! It is an inviting bungalow with lots to do and steps from the beach.

Great Stay in Santa Cruz

  • 5 of 5

I had great time in Santa Cruz and surrounding areas with two of my grandchild. The home was clean and comfortable. It is close to the beach and shopping. Wish we could have stayed longer.

Quaint, comfortable home in a wonderful location.

  • 5 of 5

This home suited the needs of three adults and four children aged one through seven. There were more than enough sleeping accommodations and all the necessary utensils were provided. The super short walk to the beach and a lovely walk up 7th to a nearby market with deli made it nice. Some of the beach gear was not usable due to being broken but I don't think that's a big issue. Word of caution to those with super young children. The home has a few areas with steps and some of the furniture is not young child friendly. As long as you are prepared and watchful, it should be okay.

Thank you for allowing us in your home!

Close to the beach!

  • 4 of 5

What a great location.! The beach is right across the street.We walked a few blocks to the Crow's Nest to listen to the ukulele concert and sing along on Saturday morning. The house is clean, comfortable and colorful. The beds were extremely comfortable. The only little downside is that the the linen closet was a bit of a disaster. After some searching, we found towels under blankets and we never found any washcloths. Other than that, everything was great.

Nice house with a lot of room

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our 3 night stay. This house is only a moment from the beach. It is on a very busy road, but beyond that I have no complaints. I really liked the layout of the house. We had plenty of room.
