About the property

This Is Like Staying In a 4 Star Hotel & Camping Out. See the video!

Amazing views from roof top deck and studio. The studio is 18.6' x 11'. It has a queen bed in the studio, refrigerator, kitchen table. Also for your use only, outside on the private roof top deck, there is a top of the line Hot Springs hot tub, round queen bed, BBQ, shower & sink. In a separate room is a chemical toilet. Upon request, there is another full bathroom for your use on the main floor. Lots of dolphins, & sometimes whales. This beach studio is a combination of a 4 star hotel and camping out. The sound of the ocean and crashing of the waves is all you hear. When you make a reservation, please tell me a bit about yourself and your situation. This is a one of a kind unique experience. Not suitable for parties, children or animals. Owner lives in main house. Let host know a few days prior to your arrival around what time you plan to be arriving. If possible email or text host an hour or so before arrival. $20. an hour for late check outs. Park in front of the house on the street as close as you can to the house. Push gate open in the middle towards the house. Push hard on the front door handle to get in. Follow the stairs to the tippy top. I will leave the house keys and Loft keys in the studio door. Make sure you check out the video. The video is located on the main picture, top left. Enjoy!

About The Owner

I have lived in Santa Cruz County for over 40 years, married for 13 years. I do respite care for foster children, and have been licensed to do so for 8 years. Owner lives with husband in the main house.

The Owner purchased this studio in 2005

Why The Owner chose Central Coast

I always wanted a Beach House overlooking the ocean. I love wildlife. Birds, dolphins, & whales.

What makes this studio unique

Amazing view. It feels like being on a cruise ship in the middle of the ocean. Breathtaking!

We had a wonderful time just chilling out on the deck and enjoying the view with some wine. Owner was super helpful and nice -- we really felt taken care of.

Most relaxing vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful location, amazing penthouse loft, and very sweet owner! Everything you could ask for! Little suggestions, a dish rack and a shower pan to prevent the terrace from getting completely wet during showers, but these by all means didn't take away from the whole experience which was awesome!

Awesome Place

Booked after attending my moms funeral, very tranquil and amazing sunset/views. The clamshell bed is a great touch and we ended up sleeping all night outside. Just beautiful - Thankyou

Not Good Spot in Winter

  • 3 of 5

This is a beautiful spot BUT with outside bathroom only it is difficult in winter. It is necessary to enter thru the owner's house to access the "studio" so there is not the same feeling of privacy that you feel in a more separate setting and their are "hours" requested by the owner as well.

That said, the glass ceiling is beautiful. We were there during rainy weekend and wetness made a good portion of the best parts of the property unusable and the bath facilities inconvenient.

Owner's Response: Yes, it has been raining much of the week. Part of the experience in the Penthouse Loft is to be outside, but with the rain and all, it puts a damper on it! The changing room is about 5 feet away on the deck next to the studio. We always offer other bathrooms in the main home if our guests prefer. All guests have a key to the main house to get to the Penthouse Studio on the 3rd floor, and can come and go as they like. Our Fanti-Sea studio on the same property may be a better fit for some in rainy weather. It has its own private entrance and is more of an inside experience. Happy Holidays!!

Amazing Views and Hospitality

  • 5 of 5

Jeanell and her husband have provided everything you could ever think of needing when staying here. And that is just the beginning, you get quite the amazing view of the whole bay, being right above the coast. It was really just AMAZING!

Everything was well maintained, clean, and I never thought I forgot something because everything I could think of was available. Jeanell was very easy to contact coming up to my stay when I had questions about the properties.

In the future I would recommend this place to everyone thinking of traveling to Santa Cruz.

If you're looking for something to do before our stay we enjoyed going on a sailing charter with Chardonnay charters in Santa Cruz, just 5 miles away from the property.

Thank you again!

My wife and I stayed one night at this home. It was a spectacular view!! Jeanell was very friendly and getting into our room was a snap. We slept on the outdoor bed after a night of BBQ shrimp and fresh sashimi ahi and could not have been happier. Thank you so much Jeanell......we will be back!!! :-)

The State Park surrounds the property. Quiet street, yet within a mile of stores. Lots of wildlife, birds, dolphins, whales (just saw one). Great for the beach, walking, bike riding, hiking, shopping, relaxing. Unsurpassed, unimpeded panoramic, ocean, bay, cement ship & whitewater views! Your very own top of the line Hot Springs hot tub and patio three stories high. This is one of the most breathtaking Pacific Ocean views in Northern California. You will feel like you are on a cruise ship in the middle of the ocean, yet you are a short stroll to the steps that will lead you down to Seascape beach and the cement boat at the end of the pier.
