About Bill & Julie Sautter
We are native to the bay area and our family has been enjoying Santa Cruz beaches for generations. This is our family beach home, we've enjoyed many years of spending summers raising our children at La Sirena, hosting great get-togethers with family and friends and weekend getaways.
Why Bill & Julie Sautter chose Santa Cruz
It's a perfect home for all ages. We love the proximity to the beach. It's easy to pop down for a nice morning run or walk. Bring the kids down for some beach fun and be able to quickly walk-up to the house for lunch on the rooftop deck while viewing the beach and ocean. Then head back down for some afternoon boogie boarding. No need to pack and haul everything down! It makes it easy to enjoy the best of the beach and the amenities of the house. You also have the advantage of being able to see the beach, size of the waves (should you bring your board?) and weather before you head down to the beach. Also, if you don't want to venture into the sand, you can watch others play, etc... from the deck.
What makes this House unique
La Sirena is the quintessential victorian beach house. It's full of charm you won't find anywhere else, yet offers modern advantages such as the huge ocean-view deck and white water views from the open family-kitchen-great room. Easy and safe beach access down a well maintained wide wooden staircase with railings.

Beachy family friendly home
We shared this house for a friend’s/family vacation with young children ranging from 1-5 yrs old and adults. Overall we loved our stay and highly recommend it to others.
5 stars for - owner responsiveness. They are highly responsive and worked with us for a weird issue we experienced with PayPal
-beachside location with cove beach that made it easy to keep track of young children
-as many others mentioned, the roof deck and view
-child friendly home
4 stars for:
-ants. They were pretty prevalent throughout the kitchen and even the bedrooms.
-the grill. Needs a cleaning. It caught fire the first time we lit it.
-the signage throughout the home. There were so many instructions about what renters could/could not do. It didn’t bother the other members of our party but I found it unwelcoming.
The 5 star items far outweighed everything else. I would highly recommend this property and would stay here again.
Beautiful property, great location, loved our stay
We had a great time, and thoroughly enjoyed our time at this rental property.
We were able to get in rather quickly, after having something else fall through with another place, and it was clean, and ready for us!
The location was amazing, and right by the beach. We would have loved to have taken advantage of the upper deck, but unfortunately it rained so we weren't able to enjoy the lovely outdoor area. The view from the upper deck is UH-MAZING though!
Had a great time everything we needed was there and the location could not be better
Girls 40th birthday trip
Bill and Julie were wonderfully accommodating to us when the fires in Sonoma changed our plans and we needed a place to stay last minute! The house is beautiful and very comfortable. We did have an issue with the master shower in that it never got hot water regardless of how long we ran the water but that was minor compared to all the wonderful things about the house. The view is incredible and we spent every morning together drinking our coffee on the upper deck. We had an amazing time and would definitely recommend staying here! Thank you for sharing your home!!
It's our pleasure to be able to accommodate last minute guests! We encourage all guests to call us during their stay if there’s ever an issue, no matter how minor, so we can help them with any instructions that will make their stay the best it can be.
BEST FAMILY VACATION
The house, location and everything was beautiful...we loved everything about it, our family spent a week in July 2017 and it was spectacular...
The view from the top deck is amazing...thank you again for everything, would love to stay again and would recommend to everyone!!!
So glad you had a great time! Happy to have you back anytime! La Sirena makes a great weekend getaway too.
Quaint with an awesome location
The La Sirena House is a perfect Antique. It has the lure and myth of the Mermaid, and this is found all around the theme of the house. The entrance and front of the house are the stuff that fairy tales are made of. The real find is at the top of the house and masked well from the street. This is the huge open deck that looks over the gorgeous beach below.
As with all antiques, handle with care. So this home is a bit fragile in that the majority of windows are obviously historical of nature, and cannot be opened. If this doesn't bother you or make you claustrophobic, then it won't be an issue. It is impossible to get a breeze going at all.
The amenities for the home are lovely, very nice sets of dishes, cups and glassware etc. The cooking ware could use a spiff up, but it was ample.
The furniture is comfy and appropriate for the beach. I particularly liked the master bed, although it is just a double, or small queen, it is dressed in a fancy romantic style and was cozy.
The main bathroom was great and the shower worked well, with ample hot water. Be sure to realize the lack of water pressure in the master bath, and opt for the main tub/shower if you want to feel clean.
If you like a nice old home with quaint touches and want to be right at the beach, this place is for you. I can't see it being great for little kids, with the rather precarious spiral staircase, etc. But perhaps for two couples this would work well and the location to town is great as well.
Santa Cruz is simply amazing so if you stay at La Sirena, I am sure the little things will go by unnoticed.
La Sirena is in the perfect spot. Steps away from Santa Cruz's sunniest beaches, this treasure is centrally located between charming Capitola Village and the historic and exciting Beach Boardwalk of Santa Cruz.
