About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

This lovely two-story Santa Cruz vacation rental has everything to make your vacation a winning one. From an outdoor shower to shrug off the sand to two decks to enjoy the ocean breezes, your worries will be just a memory in no time.

Just two miles from lovely Capitola and four miles from Santa Cruz proper, this home is just minutes from the beach and your chance to surf!

This chic three-bedroom, dog-friendly home has a reverse floor plan with the bedrooms on ground level and the living room on the second floor. It may feel odd to some, but it works after a long day of sightseeing around town.

The great room is large and inviting with a plush couch and chair to sooth tired muscles. Start a cozy fire and enjoy the warmth on a cool winter's night. A sliding glass door leads to a outdoor deck perfect for entertaining or savoring a glass of wine after dinner.

Speaking of dinner, you'll be crafting a pleasing repast in no time at the gourmet kitchen! A granite-topped island, two-seat breakfast bar, and stainless steel appliances dominate the space but you'll have no problem entertaining in the eight-seat formal dining room. Prep for dinner at the gorgeous half bath just down the hall.

Each of the bedrooms affords guests a wealth of space and light. The master features a king bed and a large walk-in closet as well as a door to the outdoors. An attached bathroom has dual vanities and a stand-alone shower and tub that are a sight to behold. A second bedroom boasts a queen bed and rustic furniture, while a third bedroom offers a full bunk bed. There's also a second full bath with a stand-alone shower just down the hall. Retreat to the second-floor sitting room, to the comfy red couch and a flatscreen TV. You'll also have access to a second deck with a gas grill and dinette set.

A washer and dryer, free WiFi, a ping-pong table, and bikes are on hand for your enjoyment. An outdoor shower makes sure the sand doesn't follow you indoors. Up to two dogs are welcome as well,though a nightly fee per dog and minimum fee per stay will apply.

Santa Cruz is known for its beautiful scenery and as a rock-climbing and surfing mecca. Head to the water to test your skills on a board or take a hike around Wilder Ranch State Park. You'll feel invigorated and recharged in no time.

Play in the ocean or just laze the days away on one of the beautiful decks. It's all just steps away at this lovely Central California Coast vacation rental.

About Vacasa, CA - Central California Coast

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 Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

The house was more that we expected and the Vacasa staff was excellent in responding to some minor issue we had. I would highly recommend this home to those with a small party 6-8. Spacious, comfortable, convenient location, close to a beach.

The house was comfortable and in a great location. The website indicated ocean view; however, the only ocean view from the deck was a few feet between two houses, this was a bit of a disappointment. I will rent from Vacasa again but for this reason will not return to this property.

santa cruz our favorite

  • 5 of 5

THis house is in the perfect location in santa cruz. It was really lovely staying here and cant waitt to come back. We did have some issues with trying to get the television on but it was ok becuase we really didn't have time to watch. Some of the appliances in the kitchen were falling apart the handles in the range came off and the top of the frigde fell off but my husband is handy so he fixed them
