Our new "perfect vacation home"

  • 5 of 5

We have already communicated directly with Deborah. This place has just about everything on our "beach-going preferences" list. Sight, sound and smell of the ocean; ramps not stairs to access the unit and from unit to the sand; near Beach Street Café for breakfast or lunch at least once during a week's stay; new favorite place for one dinner out at Ella's at the Airport; otherwise a well equipped kitchen with many staples accessible; space for jigsaw puzzles at the dining room table; and Alexa for our kind of music. We also learned to enjoy walks around the lagoon, which is easier on elderly backs and legs than walking on the sand. Oh, and we love to shop at Watsonville Nob Hill Market. Frosting on the cake was provided by hummingbirds. We named one Napolean because he would go to war with any bird that wanted to feed at HIS feeder.

A calm weekend escape with the sound of waves crashing our your bedroom door!

Nice place. Beautiful view. Fully stocked kitchen for cooking. Easy to check in and out of. We saw whales! Very relaxing. My only issue: the mattress was really too soft.

Owner's Response: Thank you Angie for your wonderful review! We are so happy you enjoyed your visit. Our mattress is a Sleep Number mattress. That means you can adjust the firmness on each side of the bed with the remote control in the box on night table.

Beautiful unit with lots of character

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in this unit more than once and every single time, it’s stunning. The unit itself is decorated beautifully. They’ve incorporated a lot of the surrounding area in their decor and it flows perfectly. I can (and do) watch the hummingbirds all day long! We also saw several whales and a few dolphins right from the patio! On our most recent trip, we made good use of the beach chairs and boogie boards provided! The location itself is only about 10-15 minutes from town, but it feels worlds away! When we go, we prefer to just relax in the unit, but it’s in between Monterey and Santa Cruz, so it’s a great place to stay if you plan on hitting either of those places. Owner was very responsive and accommodating, and a pleasure to work with. We won’t stay anywhere else!

Truly a Magical Place by the Sea

  • 5 of 5

We wouldn't change a thing about the condo. The location is fantastic...just steps from the beach. Watsonville is a few minutes away and had all the shopping we needed. We saw many breeds of birds, sea lions, dolphins, surfers and fishermen along with beautiful sunsets and the moon setting at dawn. The humming birds visited the feeders from dawn to dusk. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed. Renting this condo and spending time at the beach was a highlight of our trip. Really a gem!

The View is Captivating

  • 4 of 5

You open the door to the unit and walk in to find a fairly spacious open concept apartment, and your eyes are immediately drawn to the view. In the living room, you not only have a huge picture window, you have the doorway to the balcony. Then you notice the bedroom has the same wonderful view and a door to the balcony. With the doors open, the unit fills with fresh ocean breezes and that wonderful, calming sounds of the waves against the shore.

The owners took the time to add a number of extra touches to help make the stay even nicer. The dining table is set ready for a romantic dinner. The pantry is well stocked with basics and there are ample place settings, pots, pans, etc. for cooking. There is even an electric grill on the patio.

The access door to the beach is right next to the unit, so it couldn't be more convenient. A word of caution though, to get that great view and easy access, the unit is located on the 2nd floor and back quite a ways from the parking lot. There is an impressive deck and ramp system that winds its way through landscaped gardens, but pushing the provided carts filled with luggage and groceries was a bit of a chore.

The owners were very responsive to our questions and even texted to let us know when the unit was ready for occupancy as our flight arrived early.

P.S. If you enjoy hummingbirds, this is definitely the place for you. Thanks to two feeders located on the balcony, we enjoyed constant visits from as many as eight birds at a time and they weren't bothered by our presence, so we got a close up look at creatures that are generally no more than a blur. It was one of our greatest pleasures during the visit.
