About the property

2 bedrooms, 4 beds, 1 bath, sleeps 6

Our lovely 2-bedroom, 1-bath cottage is wonderful for couples and families, just 2 blocks from Santa Maria Beach (Santa Mo’s) and 3 blocks from Sunny Cove Beach.

You'll feel like you're at the center of the universe in our bright, quiet beach getaway. Our two queen-size beds and two kid-size bunk beds can comfortably accommodate two couples and two children.

Perfect location and clean home.

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying here. The beach is nice and close, the kitchen was updated since our last stay too. It's nice having two bedrooms. Dan is a great host. Thank you. We look forward to our next visit.

Cozy little cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was clean and exactly as promised right by the beach. Dan was great at answering any questions we had. The wifi was very good. I did not notice when booked that there was no television. Our adult children were the only ones who had a problem with this. The cottage was centrally located to everything and it was easy to get to. I would definitely recommend staying here and I will be again in the future.

Fantastic family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 stayed for 5 days during spring break. The kids had so much fun playing in the front yard and heading to Sunny Cove beach. The house was very comfortable and the neighbors were very friendly and helpful. We are already looking forward to the next trip to Sunny Cove!

Perfect spot in Santa Cruz

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was a perfect place for us. We were only two blocks from the beach. My wife and I would walk to coffee and drink it on the beach. There are restaurants and brew pubs within walking distance. You are right between Capitola and the board walk in Santa Cruz. The house was stocked with everything that we needed. Dan was AWESOME. He made sure that our stay was comfortable. We arrived later than we expected and he had a neighbor come over to help us with parking! Our daughter lives in the area, so we will be coming back and will stay here again.

The only thing to be aware of is parking. There is no driveway to park in so you need to park in the street. We usually parked right in front of the house, but had to park around the block a couple of times.

Great cottage with a lovely location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time during our stay. The cottage is adorable and located on a quiet street within walking distance to beaches and restaurants. Dan was a gracious host, always quick to respond. We had six total during our stay with the boys taking over the bunk beds in the sun room. They both said the beds were very comfortable and we had no issues with the top bunk - the ladder can slide and we used it as extra security in place of a rail - worked great, we left Santa Cruz with both boys completely intact!

The cottage was so well stocked with coffee maker, blender, pots and pans - everything you need to make sure you can prepare meals if necessary. I'm a stickler for my own pillow and unfortunately, forgot it this trip but there was a great selection of pillow types that I was happy as can be and slept soundly in the cottage.

Make sure you read the informative welcome binder with lots of great community info and procedural instructions. Be sure to leave enough time the morning you leave in order to get laundry finished and dried.

We have family that live in Santa Cruz, just down the street from the cottage so the location couldn't have been more perfect for us. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your great cottage.
