About Jody

I have enjoyed walks to the lighthouse, the beach, the restaurants, and to the local Verve Coffee House as well. I intermittently return here to enjoy the natural beauty of the area and activities such as kayaking and hiking in the nearby magnificent state parks: Wilder Ranch, Natural Bridges, and Nisene Marks. The home is available as a vacation rental at the Santa Cruz Yacht Harbor and Seabright Beach neighborhood. It is managed by SurfCity-Rentals in Capitola with Jody and Haley as the property managers.

Jody purchased this house in 2013

Why Jody chose Seabright

The property is unique and fabulous because while most places with Harbor or Ocean Views are on small lots, this one is on a double lot and so the views are from the ground floor level from the harbor view wrap around deck.

What makes this house unique

I love how the wrap around deck gives relaxing and lovely views of the Santa Cruz Harbor. These breathtaking views of the sailboats and the Monterey Bay can be enjoyed from the hot tub on the deck as well.

Wedding Festivities!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this beautiful house and cottage for a week in which to host family and friends attending our daughter's wedding. It easily slept 10 people. It's a great party house where we held a family dinner for 30, a bridal shower, post -wedding brunch, and many happy meals. This is an easy -flow house that has every accoutrement you have at home! Exquisite views from a huge, gorgeous deck! Highly recommended! I wish we could do it all again!

It was a nice place to stay. Upstairs rooms done nicely: provide good number and variety spaces.

  • 3 of 5

Location is wonderful. This is an older home which has been expanded and updated but still shows need for tlc. Living, kitchen and dining areas very comfortable and nicely furnished. The converted downstairs space (with a 4th BR and 3rd bath) has a nice bathroom but the bedroom space needs improvement to be acceptable. The most significant deficiency was lack of any closet/wardrobe or even any hangers. Also, had to borrow a hair dryer from upstairs.

The master bedroom is nice with a great claw foot tub set in a picture window with a harbor view. Lack of a shower is a drawback. Also, while the straight-through view of the harbour from the john is pleasant, the view goes both ways which can be uncomfortable - to say the least - when someone walks by on the deck outside and the user had not noticed that possibility ;). Aside from drawing the curtain behind the tub, this condition could be mitigated by silvering the window for a one-way view effect or putting a curtain or movable screen near the toilet.

Two service related deficiencies were noted during our stay: (1) There was no bottled water or starter packets of coffee; (2) We were notified just prior to our arrival that a rain storm had found leaks in two skylights so that there were large pans and towels at both locations to catch any further leakage pending repairs. We did not request any compensation for this inconvenience nor was any offered.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

The property can't be beat. It was in a great location the kitchen was awesome, the deck truly amazing.

There were some spiders and bugs in the lower room, but that is typical for a "lower" room. Hardly worth a fuss.

Became one of our favorite rentals.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the HarvorView house, it was spacious and cozy at the same time. There were 'ooh's and ha's' from the moment we walked in and even more when we stepped outside to the wrap-around deck. Thoroughly enjoyed the jacuzzi and the cozy bedrooms -the downstairs bonus room was a great option too even if the bed was a bit uncomfortable.

Overall we loved the house and will be looking to book it again next year. Thank you!!

Great location and beautiful view

  • 4 of 5

This home is beautifully situated close to the beach in a lovely neighborhood. It's also a very easy walk to the Boardwalk, a market, and Verve coffee. It could have been a five star if it was better maintained. Here are the issues we experienced: sliding door to deck VERY difficult to open and close, closet doors off the tracks and broken, fireplace in kitchen did not work, no beach toys or tv in master (both items in description or guest info book), two cereal bowls, one kitchen towel, two bath towels in each bath except for one room with three, front outdoor lights inoperable. The property manager, Hallie, was quick to respond to our needs - she delivered new kitchen towels and beach toys immediately, as well as tried to schedule service for both the fireplace and the sliding door to deck (neither took place during our week). But when paying nearly $700 per night, our preference would have been that we never needed to call the property manager at all. It seems that a walk-thru by the managers would have revealed all the issues. (note on the towel situation: there may have been additional ones in the owner's closet, but it was marked "keep out")

We are located on the Santa Cruz Harbor. You can take our steps to the beach to the right or left side of the harbor. Left side is a locals spot for beach volleyball and the right side is more for families to relax or have a bonfire. You can walk to the Santa Cruz Boardwalk or one of the eateries in the neighborhood.

Santa Cruz is full of outdoor activities but we also have serval museums that are rich in community culture. We have live music at night or serval theater events that happen seasonally in the community.

We have the University bringing in events and speakers enriching our eclectic Santa Cruz community.

We are situated between two world class surf breaks. Pleasure Point to the east and Cowels and The Lane to the West. There are unlimited places to surf or play in the ocean.

Come and enjoy one of our many things Santa Cruz has to offer.
