About the Property

Bungalow, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath (Sleeps 6)

We are excited to share this bungalow experience to enjoy as we have, a step back in time to old Santa Cruz. A century old house that was owned over 70 years by the same family. The outside shows its age and character while the inside of this charming house is a clean, comfortable retreat. Stretch out in the claw foot tub, relax by the warmth of fire, and watch the chickens hunt and peck as you enjoy a cocktail sitting in the teak chairs on the back patio.

When you are ready to explore and leave the quiet single block street, most necessities are located within a 1 mile radius. PBB (Palmetta Beach Bungalow) is a great base for easy access to restaurants, attractions, nightlife and outdoor activities. On Saturday mornings, walk to the Westside Farmer’s market, Kelly’s bakery, or Natural Bridges state park to see the Monarch Butterflies. It is a 5 short block stroll to West Cliff Drive and the ocean. There is great cycling and mountain biking, hiking, surfing, boating, fishing, spelunking, and the list goes on. Explore all of the local restaurants, breweries, and coffee shops within walking distance. Downtown Santa Cruz is a 15-20 minute walk where you can see shows at the Catalyst, go shopping, eat at many restaurants or watch a Warriors game or roller derby at the arena. The Boardwalk, a historic beachside amusement park with a 100 year old roller coaster is also an 15-20 minute walk.

Whether for a weekend, or month, come explore, enjoy and relax in Santa Cruz.
