Guestbook comments from the manager

The home was so spacious and comfortable. Jewlia was incredibly responsive before arrival with any questions we had. She also answered immediately a question we had about the wifi password when we were getting settled. The home was comfortable, the neighborhood was quiet and friendly. Really hoping this will be our new annual place to get away.

Beautiful home tastefully decorated, everything you'll need and top notch location!

  • 5 of 5

We took our family of teens and they loved this location! So close to the boardwalk and west cliff bike riding... add a jacuzzi and it was wonderful! Owners were responsive and helpful and we will definitely come again next year! Dog friendly home is well kept and we really enjoyed taking our small dog.

Really nice!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 adults and 3 grandkids (ages 2-6) stayed there for a 4 day weekend and we all loved it. The location is great - a short block from W. Cliff Dr and a couple of blocks from the stairs to Cowell's Beach. The Wharf & Boardwalk are walkable. The second floor layout is beautiful - spacious living room with views - open to dining area and kitchen - huge round dining table that fit the 9 of us. Master bedroom upstairs opens to narrow porch - huge comfey bed. Large backyard worked well for hosing sand off the kids. Nice hot tub - was respectably hot. The first floor hallways had a slightly cavernous feel, but no big deal - the bedrooms were nice. Overall: convenient, comfortable luxury.

Another memorable weekend in Santa Cruz...

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this beautiful home in Santa Cruz. The owners have made some nice upgrades to the home, and it still contains that same magic that was present the first time we rented. There is a good size backyard with a nice outdoor table and chairs, also has a very nice hot tub and fire pit! I went with my wife, and a group of our friends and had a blast. Jewlia was an absolute pleasure to work with and always is. She is very kind and accommodating, and we were also able to purchase the UFC fight during one of the nights. This home is extremely close to the beaches and the boardwalk, and is also located in a safe area that is free from sketchy individuals. We already can't wait to come back next summer, we consider this home our home away from home! I would strongly recommend this house to anyone who is thinking of visiting Santa Cruz.

July 2016, 1 week stay at this rental

  • 1 of 5

We were looking for an annual vacation rental. This home is a good location for beach and activities. It is mostly quiet at night. Upstairs master could use a new mattress. It has valleys that are painful on the back. The home was clean upon arrival but not thoroughly. Appliances were not wiped down, we had to put the dishes away, and there was a plate of rotting food left on top of the blender. Bring toilet paper and garbage bags, there were no replacements. There were damages prior to arrival so document EVERYTHING immediately when you arrive. We were charged with replacing a screen door, that we were not even aware existed. Be careful of the dining table chairs. The casters fall out when you move while sitting and present a fall risk. Also, one of the backs of the chairs was completely shredded and snagged your clothing if standing too close. This chair should not even be in the house. There was a large hole in the carpet. The backyard is not as represented in the photos. The lawn was dead and full of burrs. Not pet or human friendly. The "accidental damage insurance" proved to be a waste of time and money. We will not rent here again. The neighbors were great.

Best Family Christmas by the ocean

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed a wonderful Christmas at this great house. We hung

stockings by the fireplace, opened gifts, had a Christmas tree- the difference

from other years? In the afternoon some went surfing, some went biking in the sunshine,

some went for long walk along West Cliff Drive, past the light house, and almost

all enjoyed the hot tub later.

We stayed at this house in August and liked it so much we extended our stay in

December- in fact, I stayed there more days in December than at my own house!

With a view of the ocean, garage, hot tub, good heating system, close to Cowell

Beach/West Cliff Drive it is a great vacation rental.

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 4 nights to participate in my son's wedding. The house was beautiful, clean, comfortable, and perfectly located. The back yard was great. We will definitely recommend and repeat.

There is fishing allowed off of the wharf and also boats that are available for charter for fishing whale watching or just enjoying the view.
