This estate has 4 oversize bedrooms. Inside the home you will find 3 ½ bathrooms. There is also an additional bathroom located off of the sun deck for your convenience when entertaining outside or wanting to enjoy some time in the hot tub. This home is spacious and clean inside and out.

There is a large dining room which can comfortably seat 16 people at a solid wood dining table made custom for this house. You’ll also find 2 additional tables that each seat 6 in both the kitchen nook and outside on the patio.

The living room has high cathedral style ceilings and a beautiful ocean view, a wood burning fireplace and a 55” TV and DVD player. The great room and dining room all flow together making a wonderful place to gather.

We have 2 beautiful master suites. One is located on the second floor with a king bed & 2 twin beds. The on-suitebathroom has a tile-tub/shower combo made from custom imported tiles from Italy.

A sitting room is located upstairs with amazing ocean views and is a wonderful place to enjoy a cup of coffee, read a book or just sit and relax.

The 4th bathroom is a half bath located right off the entry and living room and does not contain a shower. The 5th bathroom mentioned earlier is located off the covered sundeck which does have a shower.

About Crystal Myers

All though I don't own this property, I have lived in Santa Cruz all of my life. My daughter and I love to travel the world but we always love coming back home to Santa Cruz. I have been running vacation rentals for the past 7 years and decided that I would manage this beautiful property to people who would like to visit Santa Cruz County.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Everyone loved the place, it was indeed a lovely house fit for our family reunion!

  • 4 of 5

The vibe of the house was perfect for a family get together! All the rooms were spacious and fit for a large group. I especially loved the huge balcony. Both adults and kids loved the place, and the location was very convenient with lots to do in and around Sta, Cruz. The house was close enough to the church, and that’s a plus especially for Christmas mass. We hope to come back at some stage!

Spacious and clean

  • 5 of 5

We had a party of 18 gathered for a wedding. The house was very clean and we had plenty of room for everyone. Shopping and amenities were close by and easy to find. The beds are all comfortable , however the twin beds are trundle beds so 5 guests are sleeping very low to the ground. This was not an issue for us as we had many young people in our group. Showers did need to be staggered and short in order to conserve hot water for such a large group. The kitchen was very well equipped and we were able to find things very easily. The layout of the kitchen allows for a lot of people to be preparing food at once. Crystal was an excellent contact person. She was prompt and very helpful with any issues we had. The home is perfect for large parties looking for a clean well equipped home.

Great house for special celebrations

  • 5 of 5

We booked this house last minute due to the unfortunate wildfire tragedy in Sonoma where we originally planned to celebrate a friend's 40th birthday. However, Santa Cruz/Capitola and the house have exceeded our expectation. 4 couples stayed at the house and it is very spacious with all the items we need to enjoy and relaxed after a day of wine-tasting or kayaking activities. We enjoyed the view, the desk and the hot tub for sure! Highly recommended to anyone, especially large groups.

Beautiful setting, amazing view, pictures didn't do it justice. Very spacious, great layout for family reunion. Yard great for play and games, plenty of privacy. Kitchen stocked very well. Love the huge dining table for family dinner's and playing games. Comfortable beds. Plenty of room to spread out. We all loved the place.
