Perfect stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our family rents Dennis and Caryl’s beach house every year and it is truly the perfect stay and feels like our home away from home. This retreat-like setting offers panoramic ocean views and we look forward to our getaway all year. The beautiful garden with the succulents, the hot tub, hammock, and fire pit make the outdoor spaces inviting and comfortable. We love a nap in the hammock while listening to the surf or whale watching from the cliff. The outdoor shower is amazing and provides a great way to rinse off after a day at the beach which is just a short walk away. The deck has a large teak table with heaters and unmatched ocean view dining. We never go out to dinner because we just can’t miss the sunset and view!

The kitchen is well stocked with everything we need and the indoor dining room and family room have ocean views and feel so cozy with the fireplace. The beds are comfortable with quality linens and the back large bedroom has heated floors with two beds and a smart TV - a great area for families.

Overall it’s our family’s absolute favorite getaway spot and we can’t wait for next year!

Drop-dead gorgeous property!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this beautiful property - the view is unbelievable, and its proximity to the beach and the little main drag, with shops and restaurants, is a huge plus. We were blown away by the gorgeous gardens and landscaping, and the attention to detail in making this truly a property for gathering and relaxing. The beds are very comfortable, the kitchen is well-stocked, and there are plenty of spots for reading, playing games and/or dining. Thank you so much for making our time together with family and friends absolutely memorable. And we fell in love with Aptos (the resident outdoor kitty)!

A piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5

A tremendous hidden gem on the California Coast line. The views are precious, the beach is a simple walk, and the house...the house clearly has not been taken for granted. Every little thing has been looked over and kept in great shape. Our boys stayed in the back room, which was a little cold, however the floors are heated and there is even a little heater to use. The real treat is waking up each day and having a dreamy view of the ocean. No matter if you're in the living room or on the back deck, you feel the weight of life lifted off your shoulders. We walked to the small downtown area, which has pizza and Marianne's Ice Cream. Driving anywhere is fairly easy. If you enjoy fishing, the pier is almost directly in front of the house on the beach. Bring your poles, bring your bait - it's a great experience with the house being so close. Sleeping at night is a treat as you can hear the ocean in the distance. The beds are all very comfortable - I say this with a great deal of judgement as we rate our stays on how comfortable the beds are. The hot tub is another great feature, though I wish the temperature could be increased, but that's small beans. Enjoying a glass of wine overlooking the beach and ocean while in the hot tub is what a staycation is all about. We also enjoyed NOT having a TV in the master bedroom. Overall, a great house, a great vibe, a great experience. Thanks again!

Biggest slice of heaven we have ever experienced!

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable, functional, beautiful and well appointed. This classic beach bungalow has the modern touches to make the stay so easy and restful. The new nap spot in the front room is priceless. We thought you couldn’t improve on a perfect location, but Dennis and Caryl always find a way to heighten the experience. Thank you for a fantastic weekend!

Car: recommended

We are located 5 minutes walk from the beach. The beach is nice and wide providing easy beach walking for miles as well as plenty of swimming, boogie boarding and surfing. We are about a mile and a half from Seascape golf course and a few miles from the famous Pasatiempo course. Capitola is 1&1/2 miles away providing a quaint town with shopping, restaurants, and a nice beach. The Santa Cruz boardwalk amusement park is about 10 miles North in Santa Cruz. The Forest at Nisene Marks is 2 miles away providing great hiking and biking options in a beautiful redwood forest. The bottom line is, if there is something you want to do there will be somewhere to do it nearby.
