About Lia Paradiso
I am an artist and after-school counselor living in San Francisco. My husband and I are starting to rent out this property. After growing up in Santa Cruz and San Jose I have now made SF my home. I have so many wonderful memories of Santa Cruz....the boardwalk, surfing, hanging out on the beach. To this day we still make frequent visits to Santa Cruz.
Lia Paradiso purchased this House in 1993
Why Lia Paradiso chose Santa Cruz
This house has been in my family since 1993, with the grandparents buying it as a vacation home. I spent a good part of my childhood at this house, but we eventually moved to San Jose. The house is not a permanent residence although we do stay there a couple times a year. Being this close to the beach is absolutely amazing. Taking morning or evening walks along the beach is a magical experience. The house is truly unique, being built in the 1970's and having cedar paneling throughout the house. It is a great house for families, friends or just a romantic couple's getaway. We try to keep with the original architects design when updating the house and love the simple, clean design of the mid-century architecture. The decks are amazing to hang out on to bbq and watch the sunset and the garden is an oasis.
What makes this House unique
The high ceilings, steep roofline, cedar paneling, open floor plan and midcentury design make this house so open and inviting. It just begs for you to relax and decompress. You can hear the ocean as you fall asleep! Just steps from the beach, you'll want to stay forever after you come back from the beach and use the outdoor shower, have a drink next to the outdoor fire pit on one of the two decks, cook dinner in the remodeled kitchen and cozy up next to the fireplace. Extensive movie and music collection, flat screen Tv in all three bedrooms. There are games a bike and even a long board to borrow. You can see the ocean and lights from the boardwalk from the front deck and loft area! This house has a great vibe and is tons of fun. the activetes you can do from this location are endless

Great large home with easy beach access
Large home with all the amenities. Clean kitchen with cooking accessories, very comfortable for our family. The kids loved the multi story home, the hammock and fire pit were great for an evening of s’mores. We will definitely be back!
Most awesome guests. I would love them to come back anytime!
House was very comfortable, clean and close to the beach! Thank you, we will likely be back! 😎
Very clean and comfortable home. With a responsive and flexible host!
My family and I stayed in Lisa's home for my sister Melanie's wedding. It was such a nice place to stay with easy access to the beach on a nice quiet street. Lisa was quick to respond to any questions I had and gave me all the info we needed to access the keys and home in general. Would highly recommend this as a vacation rental for other people looking for a nice place to stay in Santa Cruz.
Thank you.We would love to have you back anytime!
A wonderful place for our family to share, roomy, equipped, and welcoming
There were so many great surprises to this great home, such as being a stone's throw from the ocean, having a wet suit available, wood for an evening around the firepit, and a kitchen fit for baking a wedding cake. The beds were very comfortable, there were plenty of towels, and the house was very clean. There was one problem with the bottom drawer of the dishwasher that did not run smoothly. Thank you for a great stay. We would love to come back.
Thanks for such a great review!
House was perfect for a girls weekend in Santa Cruz!
The house was big and clean. There was lots of space to hang out either inside or outside. The house was just a quick walk to the beach. Overall, it made for a great weekend stay!
Thanks for the great review. Anytime you need us we’d love to have you Again
Wonderful Home Away From Home
Wonderful home in a great location! Perfect for two families with downstair bedrooms and master and loft on upper level. Plenty of room for cars and close to the beach. Owner Lia is great! Looking forward to our next stay!
This area of Santa Cruz is a very quiet, mostly residential area. You are less than a block away from one of the nicest beaches and best surfing in Santa Cruz. Being away from the higher traffic areas like downtown gives you the real feeling of being part of this amazing community. Enjoy the laid back vibe of this neighborhood and soak in all that the surf city has to offer. The house is about 3 miles from downtown Santa Cruz and the Boardwalk. To the other direction is downtown Capitola, where there is also plenty of shopping and dining. The closest shopping and dining district is less than 2 miles away on 41st Ave. in Capitola.
