About Jennifer Adams

My family has owned this house for years and we have so many memories that we want other families to be able to create. As we have gotten older and kids have come along our time to spend at the house has shortened and we hope to give the home life again with new families.

Jennifer Adams purchased this house in 1998

What makes this house unique

This home was chosen because of the views and location. There is so much going on in front of the house that we are always in awe. Since it is located on this busy street we see lots of people driving by, the sunrise and sunsets are just stunning and watching the bonfires at night is always beautiful.

We are exactly half way between downtown Santa Cruz and Capitola. Our home is on East Cliff Drive (Busy street) with the closest cross street as Prospect Road. The harbor is a five minute walk and you can walk down the stairs to the beach in front of the house. We are located on one of the only beaches in the area that allows bonfires at night which is great for fun evenings. Great restaurants are within walking distances. The Boardwalk is a five minute drive and you can see it from the house. There are many things to do for kids and adults alike. There are the Roaring Camp Railroads, The Mystery Spot and The Boardwalk with rides, games, food and shopping. They have a mini golf course and arcade attached. the main wharf at the Main Beach offers some of the best seafood and great shopping or pick up some fresh cracked crab and clam chowder from the famous Stagnaro Brothers to take home and enjoy. Sit on the lawn and watch the action of the day on the beach and relax. One of the most beautiful drives in the country is Highway 1 which is a ten minute drive. It takes you down to Monterey where there is the world class aquarium. Enjoy exciting outings or just sit back and relax. This is our home and we are glad to open it up to you.

Sand Box Review

  • 5 of 5

I came to the house for one week. My son and two girls came at different times and brought friends. There were never more than 6 in the house at any one time but there was plenty of room. The location was great. A few things not working well like the air conditioning, dishwasher and front blinds. It was great that the house had every day supplies (towels, toilet paper , paper towels, soap for shower, salt, pepper and spices, cooking oil, dishwasher soap, clothes washer soap. etc)

Owner's Response: Thank you Gregory for your kind review. Just a quick response to your review. The blind was working when I left right before you came so I am not sure what happened. The dishwasher has worked for the last renters and myself the last two weeks so again I apologize for any inconvenience and there is no air conditioning at the house so that would make sense that it didn't work. We just have a heater and fan as Santa Cruz has very few days that need it. Thank you for the kind review and I hope you will enjoy the house in the future. It is a family home and we hope everyone loves it here as much as we do. Take care, Jen

Beautiful home,fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

The pictures dont do this house justice. The view from the house to the beach is way better in person, the sun sets straight ahead, directly behind the lighthouse. The house itself is perfectly appointed, just what one would picture a beach house to be. Our large family had plenty of room. We will definitely consider coming back here.

Great house with some caveats.

  • 4 of 5

My friends and I rented this beach house for New Year's weekend. The house is beautiful with a great location and views of the ocean. The process was very simple and communication with the owner was good.

The only thing that keeps it from being 5-star was that we couldn't get the TV to work. There are instructions in the house manual, but they didn't work. We got audio, but never video despite changing the inputs. We're all young tech loving people, so it's not like we aren't comfortable with handling electronics. This is a complaint that was in other reviews as well, so I guess it's never been addressed. It's a minor quibble, but not having a live TV feed for New Year's had us scrambling to cast it to the TV through a phone.

Overall a great experience with just a small hitch.

Perfect Beach House!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful beach house recently for a girls' weekend getaway. The location can't be beat. You're looking right at the lighthouse and you can watch all the boats coming in and out of the harbor. At night you can see the lights of the boardwalk.

They have the home decorated perfectly for a beach house as well. The kitchen is very well stocked and had everything we needed.

The only issue we had was that we had some troubles figuring out the cable in the living room and the stereo system. It has a very nice receiver, surround sound, apple TV, etc. However, we couldn't get the basic cable to work. My fiance, who is very good with electronics, couldn't figure it out either. But we really only wanted to watch TV once or twice so it wasn't that big of an issue for us.

Thanks for allowing us to stay in your home! We'll be back again!
