Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: We bought a small, quaint cottage in Twin Lakes because we have always loved this neighborhood. When we decided that we would like to eventually retire in this charming community, we began making plans to rebuild a new home with all the comforts for us and our guests to enjoy. Our three bedroom, three bath home, Kirby Kove, is located within walking distance to so many of our favorite places and activities: boogie boarding at Twin Lakes Beach; sunsets, drinks, dinners, and dancing at the Crow's Nest Restaurant; sailing and stand-up paddling the Yacht Harbor; concerts and rides at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk; beach volleyball, coffee at Java Junction; and breakfast at the local favorite, the Harbor Cafe. The best thing is that all we have to do is park our cars, unload our groceries, and enjoy. If we want to visit the shops and restaurants of Capitola or downtown Santa Cruz, they're just a short drive away. All Monterey has to offer, including the world famous Aquarium, golf courses, and 17-mile drive are only a 40-minute scenic drive along the coast. We appreciate the opportunity to relax and enjoy all that Santa Cruz and the surrounding communities have to offer, and we hope you will too!
