Why Lauren chose Lower Seabright

We have another vacation rental in Santa Cruz and have enjoyed the experience so much that we have decided to add another one to our portfolio. We chose this property for its location and because it was so charming. The house is a custom built home with a lot of character and charm.

What makes this house unique

This house sits on a street that leads directly to Seabright beach which has been voted the best beach in Santa Cruz. Not only that but is is also just steps away from the footbridge over the San Lorenzo River that leads you to Boardwalk. Also 2 blocks away is Betty's Burgers, Seabright Brewery and many other restaurants. Aside from its fabulous location, our house offers 2 decks to allow for outside dining or intimate conversations. The kitchen offers a very large stove and oven for group cooking and the mattresses are ultra comfortable! We also offer 2 beach cruiser bikes for touring the neighborhood, boogie boards, an ice chest, beach umbrella, and 2 beach chairs for your enjoyment.

Great location, cute and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

Close to the beach, boardwalk and restaurants. House is cute and sufficiently equipped. We were in town for a family wedding and were grateful for the comfy beds and decks for relaxing!

Great Location, Okay House

  • 3 of 5

The house is perfectly located, it is a couple blocks from the beach. The two balconies are great to sit on. Be aware the house is right near a very busy two lane road that gets backed up pretty bad during evening rush hour, so leaving/arriving can be a little tricky. The house is well laid out for guests and the pin entry is very convenient. However it could use some maintenance. Some observations:

-The downstairs hall toilet had issues during the entire stay, we had to continually push on the pump for the tank to refill.

-The gas grill didn't light for some reason despite having propane.

-There were cobwebs all over the patio furniture that had to be wiped off.

-There was a wet load of laundry in the washer from a previous stay or cleaning crew.

-The beds could use some new pillows, they were pretty clumpy.

Wonderful Stay! Wonderful Location! Definitely Recommend

  • 5 of 5

This beach house was perfect for us :). We did the Ironman that started at the Santa Cruz Pier and we were thrilled that we could walk to the pier quicker than driving and finding a parking place. It was roomy, comfortable and had all the necessities.

Our host was lovely and even let us check out an hour later than planned (THANK YOU AGAIN)!!! A lifesaver to 4 athletes who were worn right out!!!

Thank You Again! I definitely recommend and would definitely stay here again :).

Great location & cute place!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay! Lauren's chalet is cute, clean and spacious. Great for a family, friends or 3 couples. Loved the two decks! Easy walk to Seabright beach and the boardwalk as well as some near by restaraunts. Having a two car driveway was a bonus as parking can be difficult. Easy check in & out. Would love to stay again next time we're in Santa Cruz. Thanks, Lauren!

Great location , comfortable and charming house.

  • 5 of 5

We gathered at the coastal chalet for a Santa Cruz wedding event. Wonderful location with a variety of things in walking distance . The boardwalk nearby, plenty of places to eat within walking distance and best of all a beautiful beach to swim at, walk on and just plain enjoy. Worked well for all of our family members of different ages . Beds were comfortable, plenty of towels for beach use if needed and and a great gathering spot upstairs .
