A Wonderful Holiday at Lighthouse Landing

  • 5 of 5

Lighthouse Landing was a perfect fit for our family's Christmas/New Year celebration! The location was excellent - close to the most beautiful cliff side walk in the country! The house is well equipped and sparklingly clean and the outdoor area is absolutely charming! The hostess was delightful - very helpful and a joy with whom to interact.

Nice home, great location

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place, it was ideal for our needs. Myself and two buddies traveled to Santa Cruz to participate in the 70.3 triathlon. The location was perfect: we could walk to Cowell's Beach (the swim start and run finish line) and Depot Park (transition area). The home was large, with a bedroom for each of us, a large living/common area, and a modern, well-appointed kitchen. The garage could hold our SUV and all our triathlon gear. The enclosed yard had room to hang out, enjoy a beer or two, and also dry out our wetsuits.

The beds were comfortable, the neighborhood is quiet, West Cliff avenue is a 3 minute walk away, and the owners were a pleasure to deal with. We will definitely stay here again for next year's race!

Awesome as always!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 4th year in a row to Lighthouse Landing. We obviously love it! It's the perfect set up for gatherings of friends, family and our dogs. The location is fabulous, the house is clean, well stocked and Nora is absolutely wonderful to work with. We will be back again next year!

Excellent House....will be back!

  • 5 of 5

I almost hate to write a review as I want to keep this house a secret...location, cleanliness, owner communication, bedding, front yard/back yard, A++++

Start your day with a 2 mile walk along the shore to Natural Bridges...finish the day with a 3 min walk to watch the surfers at Cowells or Steamers...

BBQ on the back patio and enjoy the downtime...

We will be back!

Perfect for getaway weekend - 2 families

  • 5 of 5

This house worked perfectly for our two families with small children. House was clean and well-supplied. It was easy to feel at home here. Location is fantastic. A small neighborhood park a few doors down the street. We walked to the coastal path everyday to the beach. It was an easy walk to the beach & boardwalk (slight uphill on the way back). Stroller friendly! The kids enjoyed the patios. Would love to stay here again sometime.

Perfect vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

My family use to live in Santa Cruz, now we have family reunions every summer in Santa Cruz. This was the first time we decided to rent a house and all of us stay together. I am a dog trainer and I like to vacation with my dogs. This house was perfect for all our needs. Easy walk to the dog beach and the warf. My sister had a step tracker on and we were walking daily 10 miles easily. When we are there we love to be outside and walk. This house was perfect. The owners were very easy to work with. We hope to rent this house every year for our vacations.
