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!

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. <br> <br> 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. <br> <br> 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!

Great house for a group
We were celebrating my daughter's birthday so had a large group . The house is spacious enough to accommodate everyone. The location and view are excellent. Enjoyed having our morning coffee on the front porch watching the surfers. As stated in other reviews there is no dining room table but having the pool table more than made up for that. Our children and adult grandchildren really enjoyed playing pool. Also, there is a large picnic table and benches on the patio that works for dinners and if you really want a dining table there is plexiglas in the garage that can go on top of the pool table. The kitchen has enough utensils and cookware to accommodate a large group. Did not have enough coffee cups/mugs. Had to bring our own. Also, there is a lack of TV channels so couldn't watch the Masters or the Giants. But overall we were very happy.
We have purchased another set of coffee mugs. We appreciate having this brought to our attention. Thanks!
Not good for families - felt like a youth hostel
This house has a great location but the inside is pretty bad. While I could tell it was old when booking, the furniture made it unlivable. The beds and couches were sooo dusty and smelly and I had an allergic reaction to all the dust in the house. The couches were so old you basically sunk all the way in and the couch covers were disgusting. We chose this house so my kids could all sleep in separate rooms (and we could get some sleep) but the back bedrooms were unusable as they had no blinds or curtains - which I think is unsafe so close to the beach - and the kids would’ve been up with the sun at 5 am. There is no place to eat a meal in the house. Basically a really good house for a partying group who don’t care about comfort of couches or beds and just want to have a lot of people in the house. Not a good house for familIes. They have to get new furniture at the least!
location is perfect, the breeze in the morning from the sea is so refreshing.<br />
the house is clean & the size is so appropriate for our group...even the kids said they want to go back to santa cruz 😉
Needs loving care, great view that it. Windows very dirty. Hot tub was good.
Home away from home
Spacious home. Cozy and cottage like. Beautiful property, well maintained. Gorgeous view!! Loved the pool table. Hot tub was not in working order upon arrival but was tended to early the following day. Needed more towels. We were short 2 (there were 7 of us). Kitchen was well stocked with appliances and dishes. Overall very happy with our stay here.
Sunny Cove is a DREAM!
I hosted my 40th birthday party at Sunny Cove Retreat and I could not have asked for anything better. The house is beautiful, and was impeccably clean. Everyone who came through said how the energy in the space felt really good, and how the little details of the space really made for a wonderful experience.
My bed and from what I heard from some of my friends who stayed in the other rooms, was very comfortable and cozy. We had everything we needed in the bathrooms, and kitchen. I felt like I was home for the entirety of my stay. The icing on the cake, was sitting in the jacuzzi, listening to the waves, and watching the stars. I HIGHLY recommend staying here!
