About the owner: I am an artist, and play in my art studio. I live in the front house..The cottage is set far back on our property, offering complete privacy, a separate entrance, and total peace and quiet. I love where I live, and I know you will too! I walk almost everywhere.. The ocean is my sanctuary, and I visit it almost everyday. When not at the the ocean, I'm in the redwoods, hiking a trail, and enjoying the peace and beauty of nature. My life motto is CARPE DIEM…Life is too short, we must embrace one another, eat well, live well, and play hard!!!
Why the Owner Chose Seabright, Santa Cruz, CA, USA:
Why here? LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!!! After living in various places all of my life, I fell in love with Santa Cruz 26 years ago..and plan to stay put! We rarely leave our town, except to go to San Francisco once in a while, or Monterey. It's hard to leave a place that is so serene and beautiful. The weather is almost always perfect, and the people are very friendly. There is beauty everywhere you look, from our rugged ocean to our majestic redwoods…So much beauty and things to do in the outdoors year-round, all within a 30 minute drive of one another. (most either walking distance, biking, or a 5 minute drive)! We enjoy hosting our cottage as a way to meet new people, and sharing our love of our town, and all that she has to offer. Our property is in the heart of Santa Cruz. We are in a quiet neighborhood, so at night, all you might hear are the waves crashing, or in the morning the birds singing. In the winter we usually hear the seals barking from the harbor and wharf. In the summer, you can walk down to the Beach Boardwalk for their free summer concert series, (Friday and Saturday nights). One block away is the Santa Cruz roller Rink..not just for kids!!! Two blocks away is the Pacific Cultural Center (a world class Yoga institute). We have numerous yummy restaurants around us, our library is one block away, three health food grocery stores are also within two blocks away, and the very best bakery in all of Santa Cruz, The Buttery, only 5 minutes away. UCSC is 15 minutes away. We also have easy freeway access, so you don't have to drive clear across town, (and get stuck in beach traffic) to get from point A to point B. The Soquel Mountains have a huge variety of vineyards, and they are only 15 minutes away! There is always something new to discover, and if all you want to do is chill, our cottage provides that, or go hang out at the Crows Nest at the Harbor (sailboat races are every Wednesday afternoon...great place to watch!)…and ENJOY AND RELAX!!!
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:

We also provide an outdoor fire pit, outdoor party lights to enjoy our peaceful evenings,a brand new Weber gas BBQ, and two cruiser bicycles...with helmets and lock.
