About the property

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.

Relaxing and cozy!!

  • 5 of 5

The four of us stayed here for two nights. We arrived rather late, but the owner still came over to greet us and made us feel welcome. I loved all of the little extras they had stocked in the home for guests. All the toiletries they provide, towels, nice linens, and even the kitchen had common spices you may need when preparing meals. You can tell they put a lot of thought when preparing the home for guests to stay comfortably. If ever we needed anything, they were quick to respond and very helpful. The location was prime. Close enough to walk to (or catch an uber) to the boardwalk and beach. Can't wait to stay here again!!!

Cozy Cottage

  • 4 of 5

My family and I rented this house for the weekend as our 1st family vacation with our 11 year old and twin toddlers. The house worked well for what we needed it for. Very clean and decorated so cute. House has everything you need except a TV and a coffee pot. My children wake up early so a TV would have been perfect for entertainment while we were getting ready to go out for the day. Coffee shops are about 2 miles away if you need it. The water heater also went out the morning we were leaving. There are instructions on how to turn it on, but we were unable to get it back on and unable to shower before we got on the road. The owners are so nice and accommodating that I am sure if we had the time that they would have come over and fixed immediately. All in all we enjoyed our stay.

Incredible WEST CLIFF location with fantastic hosts.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented this house for nearly a week to celebrate our 14th anniversary. We took all 4 kids too, the oldest being just 7. Carlo and Tammy were wonderful, as were their two daughters who played with my kids all the time. It really is a great spot. I can't imagine anything better in Santa Cruz. Just choose this one. We will be going back!

Comfortable residential cottage

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was charming. The redesign of the interior gives the 100 yr old home a modern feel. A standard ammenity that was missing from the kitchen was a coffee maker. A French press was available but is inadequate when a lazy morning with more than one cup of coffee is desired. The location is great, just a short walk to the beach & Boardwalk. However, if you are seeking privacy or a view, this is not the right location for you. Overall I was pleased with the cottage, location & price.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

This was such a cute and nice beach house, it was perfectly located close to the beach and the Boardwalk, the house was nice and perfect for eating/sleeping in between all of our fun activities! It was perfect for four people. The owners live on the property and there is a shared yard with a BBQ and patio furniture you can use, they were very nice and welcoming, we enjoyed our stay very much!
