I feel so lucky that we found this great house for our vacation. It’s in a perfect location— you can walk to the beach, a gift shop, coffee shop, several restaurants and activities like paddle boarding and kayaking. It was very clean and had everything we needed. It was also very cozy despite the chilly weather. I really hope we can stay there again soon!

Perfect, cozy spot

  • 5 of 5

Everything was so clean! The sheets smelled fresh. The towels were fresh. The beds were super comfy. The backyard is gorgeous. TVs in the bedrooms for privacy if you need to relax a bit in your own. The location can’t be beat. 5 minute walk to the beach. The Crows Nest restaurant is a great spot to grab a drink.

The perfect beach vacation rental!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful beach house! Perfect for our family of five; two teen girls and a 6 year old. The moment we drove up, the house greeted us with it's vibrant and charming exterior, the quintessential dreamy little beach house in Santa Cruz right across the road from the harbor boats and tucked into the quiet little beach harbor neighborhood. The rustic wooden gate with the latch attached to a weighted rock behind it reminded us of the charming homes in Carmel. Inside the property, the beautiful grounds around the house are so sunny and beautifully adorned and kept. The house is immaculate and perfect in every way. So well thought out, with everything you could ever need and then some. And so organized, clean and new with great comfortable furnishings and to die for views through the many windows, of the boats and peekaboos of the bay/harbor. There were even games and kids toys and puzzles for adults and kids alike. The house binder gave a concise and thorough description of all one needs to know, including house rules, instructions, SUP and kayak rentals as well activities, restaurants and cafes etc. We had our little chihuahua with us and she loved the yard which included a grassy patch for her to do her business and or run around. They have boogie boards and two bikes with helmets, as well as tons of kids sand toys. It was just a few minutes walk (about 2 blocks- we cut through the parking lot at the harbor to make it faster) to the beach- our favorite in Santa Cruz. The girls played volleyball at the nets in front of the coffee place and the El Palomar Mexican restaurant/bar. There are outside tables to just hang out and watch the action. We loved the Crows Nest market to the side of the Crows Nest Restaurant, which has a great back deck with wonderful views out to the bay and sold home made pizzas, salads and soft serve ice cream, beer and wine etc. Also has amazing and creative gift items for sale. The girls rented paddle boards through SUP rentals located right in the parking lot next to the store which also rents kayaks and wetsuits for $10 a day and sells sunscreen etc. My husband rented a kayak from the place across the street from the house which was also really easy. And if you are there in the summer between Memorial Day and Labor Day, there is a free Water taxi in the harbor that takes you around the marina and back with a few stops (about a 10 minute ride if that)- Our 6 year old got to drive the boat! LOVED IT!

What a gorgeous place. Perfect for our girls wknd with doggies. So clean and fresh, well maintained inside and out with everything you might need. The dogs loved the huge fenced yard and we love the deck! Watching the harbor activities was so fun. Rent kayaks right next door. Easily store your bikes in the secure garage. We'll be back!

Located in the highly desirable Twin Lakes Beach area and the Santa Cruz Yacht Harbor, and just a stone’s throw from the shops and restaurants – the Snug Harbor has one of the best locations in town! Just down the street is one of Santa Cruz's most popular beaches, dog-friendly and lifeguarded Twin Lakes Beach, where you can reserve a fire-pit at night to stoke up a roaring bonfire, play some volleyball, or just relax at one of the outdoor tables on the sand of the seaside cafes and restaurants nearby. Just steps away from Snug Harbor, you may choose to rent a kayak or paddleboard at the Kayak Connection, or stop in for dinner at the Johnny’s Harborside Restaurant. After the Harbor activities wind down for the day, you’ll appreciate how quiet this neighborhood is at night, as you relax and enjoy the comfortable amenities within the Snug Harbor.

The Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk and the Santa Cruz Wharf are an easy 15 minute walk from Snug Harbor, and there is a multitude of fine eating establishments and retail locations within easy walking distance. You may choose to park your car, and not use it again during your entire stay!

The Snug Harbor is 5-10 minutes from downtown Santa Cruz, a pleasant 3 1/2 mile ride to neighboring Capitola, a 45 minute drive to the Monterey Peninsula, and 45 minutes from the greater Bay Area.
