Resembling a vintage seaside retreat but with modern updates - free WiFi and a private hot tub - this Santa Cruz vacation rental has all the trimmings to make your California getaway one to remember!

Built in the 1950s but boasting modern updates, this charming home gives you unbelievable beach access and ocean views. Enjoy peace and solitude from the vantage point of your cozy living room while Santa Cruz proper is mere minutes away, as is the Beach Boardwalk.

This mid-century marvel boasts a spacious living room with wood beam ceilings, paneling, and comfy sofas in front of a wood-burning fireplace. You can savor a night in watching a film on the large HDTV.

The expansive kitchen lies just down the hall and boasts a wooden butcher block island, counter space, and plenty of kitchen accoutrements to make the home chef in your party a happy camper. Just outside is a firepit, gas grill, and a hot tub for summer evenings al fresco style.

Ten guests can sleep comfortably in the four beautifully appointed bedrooms. The largest of the bedrooms boasts a king bed and two twins as well as an en-suite bathroom. Another bedroom features a queen bed and its own bathroom, and two additional bedrooms have a bunk bed in each, ensuring a large party is completely comfortable. There is another full bath right down the hall.

Guests can shoot some hoops on the basketball court or play a spot of billiards at the full-size pool table (which can double as a full-size dining table!). A washer and dryer are on hand, as well as free WiFi so you always stay connected. The sand and sea are just a quick walk across the street to Sunny Cove Beach! You'll never want to leave this amazing retreat!

Santa Cruz boats myriad hiking and biking areas, as well as the famous Beach Boardwalk. Monterey Bay and Silicon Valley are about an hour away by car so you're never far from the action.

Relax in the hot tub and enjoy sun and sand at this lovely beachside Sunny Cove retreat!

About Vacasa, CA - Central California Coast Office

Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers.



Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife’s family’s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website—could be handled by a specialized central support team.



Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home—our team is standing by!

Sunny Cove

  • 3 of 5

Large family home... with a spectacular view. Loved the feel and space but that's about it. Broken item list: windows in bathroom unable to close, tv/WiFi not working (security issues in neighborhood... never get on unsecured wifi), garbage disposal not working, hot tub not hot, broken toilet seats, necessary cleaning items....too many at this point. I would say property management is poor. Would never go through this site again ... stay with Airbnb.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I decided to rent this house for my birthday during the Labor Day weekend for 3 families. It was spacious for 10 people (6 adults/4 children). Ample parking in driveway (street parking is permit only) and a wonderful beach cove just 20 feet across the road! We did morning walks and found a Starbucks about 1/4 mile away and some local eateries, but we ate in as well. We UBER'd or used Lyft to drive us to the Boardwalk area, which was extremely crowded due to the heatwave. Amenities like the pool table and hot tub in the back yard were very popular. The house is mid-century but everything was pretty much in working order and in good condition. We had some issues with plumbing (roots and pipes) which can happen in many neighborhoods but our local property management was on top of it and did their best to minimize any inconvenience. Two weeks later, we're still buzzing about this weekend at this house. We'd do it again!

Perfect location!

  • 4 of 5

The house has incredible views and is wonderfully located. Good, open area for guests to hang out together. The only dining table is outside on the porch (there is a eat-at counter in kitchen), so bring sleeves for cool morning or evening weather. It is not a sleek, shiny home...more of a comfortable, homey feeling like a "Grandparent's house". Great for kids as is right across the street from the beach.

We received an early, unsolicited, check in which was very nice. Our issue was that everything wasn't quite in order, possibly as a result. After a phone call and two emails, the issues were quickly resolved.

Great location, rustic home

  • 4 of 5

The location of this home was great. Beach access is across the street. The house is rustic to be sure, so if you are expecting a very modern/updated home setting, this is probably not the place for you. The kitchen had a robust selection of tools., cooking utensils, and spices. The beds are a bit utilitarian but they do the trick. Overall a fun stay.
