About the Property

2 bedrooms, bedding in sunroom and 2 1/2 half bath, sleeps 6

Enjoy the best of Santa Cruz all within walking distance. Stay at the ultimate Santa Cruz vacation rental house in the very popular Seabright Beach neighborhood. You can walk to the Boardwalk, the Wharf, the yacht harbor and even downtown from this location. This two story, two bedroom, 2.5 bath home has all the elements of the perfect vacation get-a-way. The home is on quiet Mott Avenue and is situated just 110 steps from Seabright State Beach, a south facing beach and the warmest, sunniest beach in Santa Cruz County. Seabright beach is 1/2 mile wide & bordered on the west by the San Lorenzo River and Santa Cruz Boardwalk and to the east by the Santa Cruz Yacht Harbor. The home is fully remodeled residence. For maximum white-water view of the bay, you’ll find all of the living spaces upstairs.

Upstairs Living Area: The living spaces of this home are located upstairs to take advantage of the fantastic white water views, of the Monterey Bay, the beautiful cypress trees, and the neighborhood roof-tops and the Seabright neighborhood but very private.
The upstairs area is large, open and very bright. At almost 600 square feet, this large living area includes the living room, kitchen area, dining area, sun room area and a convenient half bath. The area upstairs features 11, (yes eleven) , skylights and 19 windows so perhaps we should consider the whole upstairs a sun room! Not to worry, there are shades if it’s just too much. You don't need the shades for privacy though since you are high above everyone.

Upstairs Deck: The rooftop deck is 275 square feet, and is accessible right outside the upstairs living room where you can relax, listen and look at the ocean and also enjoy great views of the Seabright neighborhood. The deck enclosure design provides maximum privacy from neighbors yet maintains 100% of the surrounding rooftop, cypress trees, beach and ocean view. The capped, glass top railing also provides fabulous shelter from breezes on those cooler days, making the deck functional even during less than ideal weather.

Living Room: The living room contains a large “L” shaped built in sofa, a gas fireplace, 47 inch LCD HDTV and multimedia entertainment center. The built-in sofa can be easily converted to a two twin bed sized sleeping area if needed. The sofa cushions are 3 feet wide eight inches thick and very high quality and are very comfortable for sleeping. This isn’t like sleeping on one of those fold out sofa beds. To round out the luxury of the living room, there is a electric massage recliner chair for complete relaxation.

Car: Recommended

Our home is located at the ocean on the first block of Mott Avenue about a hundred steps from Seabright State Beach and is off main roads so traffic noise is not a problem. There is a lot to do within walking distance of the house. The Santa Cruz Boardwalk sea side park and also the yacht harbor are only a few minutes walk from the house. In less than 5 minutes you can easily walk to several fine restaurants, coffee shops, bars and even a rock climbing indoor facility. The Santa Cruz Warf and downtown Santa Cruz are are about a 25 minute walk. You have one of the best beaches in California right outside your doorsteps. Seabright Beach is sometimes called “Castle Beach” by local old timers and is a great family beach. You can swim, bodysurf, beach comb, and picnic on the beach. Lifeguards are stationed on Seabright Beach during the peak summer season. At night beach fires are allowed.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1993

About the owner: While visiting friends in Santa Cruz, we fell in love with the town and it's natural beauty. In 1993 we purchased our Mott Avenue home and spent many weekends there. The house was fully remodeled by 2000 and new hardwood floors other upgrades and new carpets were added in 2009. New furniture was added in 2016 including a Sleep Number bed.

Why the Owner Chose Seabright, Santa Cruz, CA, USA:
As anyone in the greater bay area can tell you, Santa Cruz offers the warmest and family friendly beaches in northern California with world class surfing and the Santa Cruz Boardwalk - one of the last seaside amusement parks left in the US. Santa Cruz is a wonderful place for young and old.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The Seabright neighborhood itself is an attraction. Whether you’re gazing from the upper deck or strolling, there are several points of interest. This is a good and safe place to walk or ride a bicycle. Go north along E. Cliff Dr., toward the San Lorenzo River to the “Point” where you can look across the river toward the Boardwalk, the Santa Cruz Wharf, the Steamer Lane Museum Lighthouse, back toward the lighthouse and Seabright beach. Wander the neighborhood and you’ll see little late 19th and early 20th century summer cottages in various styles and unique contemporary bungalows.
