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.

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.

There are several points along west cliff within walking distance where you will see surf contests and events. The famous surf museum at the lighthouse is within walking distance. The wharf offers several of our best restaurants (Ideal bar and Grill, Olita's, Gildas to name a few. There is even a fresh seafood market at Stagnaro's. 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.
