Perfect house for a family gathering- the beach was awesome, location was perfect.

  • 5 of 5

Look no further if you want an amazing home for a get away with other families. The kids loved the attic space and the adults loved everything. The home is beautiful, charming, and is perfectly located. Celebrating my 50th birthday on the beach was perfect!

Repeat visit at the perfect family beach house

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time my husband and I, our grown children w/spouses, and our grandchildren: 7 adults and two children (age 5.5 and 2.5) have stayed at this fabulous property and it won’t be our last!

Gabriela has thought of everything, from tons of wonderful linens and towels (including fluffy bath towels and generous beach towels), to a fully stocked kitchen, to comfortable beds, a great TV, lots of games, DVDs, books, etc. The house is immaculately clean (very important to me!) and the photos are only a teaser for the real treasure that is this house. We rang in the new year and enjoyed unseasonably warm and sunny weather for our 4-night, 5-day, extra-long weekend stay. As my grandson exclaimed on the beach, “I love it here!” We walked everywhere: the beach in our backyard, the Boardwalk, the Pier, dinner/breakfast/lunch at a variety of restaurants, the very child-friendly Natural History Museum "across the street,” and even to downtown Santa Cruz to enjoy the unofficial, annual bagpipe parade on New Year’s Eve. We cooked many meals in the great kitchen equipped with a chef’s stove, finished a 2,000-piece puzzle we brought along, witnessed fantastic sunsets, saw whales and dolphins in the ocean from the deck, played pool, foosball, ping-pong, made s’mores on the beach (one of the few beaches that allows building a fire in the fire rings), built sandcastles, relaxed in the hot tub, and even braved the cold water (well my grand kids did!) of the Pacific Ocean (in December!!). If your dates are open, don’t hesitate booking this property, you will NOT be disappointed! Thank you, Gabriela, we can’t wait for our next family weekend at Vistamar!

Nice Property - Excellent Location

  • 4 of 5

Just a few things missing to make the stay perfect -- no dishwasher soap in the house, no shampoo and conditioner - unsatisfactory bath towels - for such an elegant property and such a high price rental property, one would think that a few more amenities would come with it. But, that said, we loved walking to and from restaurants and along the beach and beach-front and enjoyed the sunsets.

Beautiful property in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Recently stayed at Vistamar with a family group of 12. (8 adults and 4 children). This is a great place for a family gathering right on the beach. Plenty of room to have the entire family together in one room or to spread out and get away from each other when we needed to. The kids loved the upstairs loft area and the adults loved the views from the dining room and deck.

The home is very well maintained and well equipped. Gabriela was a pleasure to deal with and promptly responded to our questions.

Highly recommend this property.

Simply awesome. My only questions are:

1) Why wouldn't you go as often as possible?

2) Why wouldn't you stay for as long as possible?

Really, no complaints only accolades.
