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.

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

Great for a group retreat

  • 4 of 5

This place is situated in a private community about 5 miles from Santa Cruz beaches overlooking the ocean. The view from the property is excellent, and can be fully appreciated from the living room thanks to the large windows. The property is secluded but only a 5 min drive to local shops and only 20 mins from Santa Cruz beaches and downtown. We were there on a team-building retreat and this place was an ideal getaway. We made full use of the kitchen which was large enough to have several people cooking at once and had all the necessary utensils stocked. I took off one star only because the carpets had some stains on them, which wouldn't bother me normally but since this is a luxury rental I couldn't give 5 stars. Would definitely stay again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for you kind review. I am sorry about the carpet. We actually have it on the schedule to be cleaning March 20th. Unfortunately past renters have spilled and not cleaned up causing these stains. We do our best to spot clean after each renter but some times there are just more than we can cover under spot treatments. We hope to have your group back in the future! -Crystal

This house was a great site for our cast retreat to help our actors bond and connect. The great room, deck, and lawn were large enough to conduct group activities in a variety of places throughout the property. Crystal was a quick communicator and was able to accommodate our additional paperwork needs, being from a university organization. I look forward to bringing additional groups of students on retreat here in the future!
