About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6

You'll be right in the heart of vibrant, but laid-back Santa Cruz when you stay at this cute and cozy beach getaway, just a short walk from the famous Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk! With two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and room for six, this Central California Coast condo will be a perfect home away from home, with one-of-a-kind Boardwalk, Wharf, and ocean views!

Located seventy-three miles south of San Francisco, this Boardwalk Dream is ideally situated for exploring a long stretch of coast both north and south. Head up to the City by the Bay for a day trip, or drive just over 40 miles south and wander the ocean exhibits at the popular Monterey Bay Aquarium. If you want to stick closer to home, you'll be right in the desirable Beach Hill neighborhood, with shops, galleries, restaurants, and of course the beach, easily walkable and right nearby!

This Boardwalk Dream vacation condo boasts tall ceilings and an open floor plan, with a gas fireplace, WiFi, cable TV, and a Blu-ray player. The full kitchen is stocked with everything that you'll need for preparing meals, and when you do want to break bread, there's a dining room table to set for up to six.

At night, there's a queen-size bed in the master, and a twin-over-full bunk bed with a trundle in the second bedroom. Other amenities include a washer and dryer, air conditioning, and a stereo with a CD player.

Just minutes away, walk along the San Lorenzo River Path to downtown Santa Cruz on your way for shopping, dinner, or just people-watching from an outdoor cafe. The historic Santa Cruz Boardwalk offers rides, games, and other amusements. And of course, there's surfing right out on the waves, and long stretches of sand for beachcombing.

This Santa Cruz retreat is perfect for two couples traveling together or a family vacation right by the water. Whether you spend your days at museums and other attractions, or just relax on the sand, you'll have a memorable time on the beautiful Central California Coast!

Plan a California getaway to unique, laid-back Santa Cruz with a stay at this cute and well-stocked Boardwalk Dream.

Dirty carpet, dirty washer & dryer, three flights of stairs to go up or down. If your legs need exercise, this is the place to go. 8>)

Santa Cruz vacation

  • 4 of 5

Overall the location of the house was awesome. The furnishings and decor were a little out dated but that wasn't a big deal as we were in and out the entire time. The home was clean with the exception of the floor which was very dirty.
