About the property

3 bedroom, 2 bath bungalow 2 blocks to the beach!

The Beachy Keen Bungalow is a bright and breezy home that’s perfect for relaxing after a sunny day at the beach. With lots of bright windows and luxurious furnishings, you’re guaranteed to unwind immediately and never want to leave.

The great room is open and spacious so the entire family can relax together either on the comfy couch in the living space, at the dining table or fixing a snack in the fully stocked kitchen. There’s also a cute sun room stocked with video games and a TV to keep even the little ones entertained. The master bedroom features 5 star, hotel quality linens and a plush Cal King bed. The second bedroom has two twin beds, perfect for the kiddos. The third bedroom has a plush top, queen bed with deluxe bedding. Outside, you’ll find a fully enclosed yard with lots of room for outdoor BBQ meals and play. Winter or summer, the hot tub will be a perfect spot to relax after all your Santa Cruz fun.

This three bedroom, two bath home comfortably sleeps six people.

Our goal is to ensure your Santa Cruz vacation is perfect. And with some of the best beaches and amenities within walking distance, you don’t have to go far to enjoy Santa Cruz. Twin Lakes (aka Blacks Beach), that’s only 1.5 blocks away, features great surf during the day, amazing views of the lighthouses and fire pits for roasting marshmallows in the evening. If you're a coffee person, take a quick 2 block walk to The Windmill Cafe for one of the best lattes in Santa Cruz. The Santa Cruz harbor is walking distance and features great restaurants like The Kind Grind, Aldo’s or the famous Crow’s Nest. Hop in your car and drive 5 minutes to the Beach Boardwalk, downtown Santa Cruz or Capitola. We have a “Things to Do” binder at the house full of recommendations to help you enjoy your stay. And we’re always available prior to your arrival to help in anyway. This is sure to be one of your most memorable vacations yet!

Exceeded my expectations...

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful beach bungalow is exactly as it displays on the website. Literally a 5 min walk to the beach, every amenity and then some! We plenty of parking and many activity options or just sit in the hot-tub. I will definitely re-book for future stays!

The beach chairs were very useful. The sun room was great with the foosball table. The beds were comfortable, but the walls were very thin.

Perfect vacation house with every amenity, a block and a half from a great walking beach

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here over Christmas and Kasey and Chris had decorated a lovely (live) Christmas tree for us. Amazingly comfortable beds, well equipped kitchen for cooking Christmas dinner. A little cool to enjoy the atrium room with the football game table but must be lovely in warmer weather. Can't recommend this place highly enough.
