About Glenn Aby

As a child we would get in the station wagon and head to Santa Cruz. We loved those trips. When I met the woman I wanted to marry we often went to the beach, and enjoyed it together. We liked it so much we made it part of our wedding weekend and invited the guests to a bonfire at the beach near this home. Our family has made the drive over the hill numerous times to spend many special days at the beach.

Glenn Aby purchased this house in 2015

Why Glenn Aby chose Lower Seabright

We looked for almost a year to find a beach house that met all our desires. We now know Santa Cruz neighborhoods well. The neighborhood is great and everything is so close. It does ones soul good to come to Santa Cruz.

What makes this house unique

If you have an electric car we have a 240 volt charger. The charger fits Nissan Leafs or any other vehicles that use a J1772 charger.

Good location. Strange house design.

  • 4 of 5

This house is in a great location for Santa Cruz. However, this house is designed for people that do not want to hear or see their children in the basement. This house lacks a place where five adults can relax together. The common living space is just not comfortable. This house also brought up issues with VRBO. This house had issues with alarms sounding in the middle of the night and an absent owner that was unable to fix anything during our stay.

Owner's Response: I'm surprised and sad about this review. During their stay I only heard of the alarm problem on the 3rd and last night of their stay. If there were other problems, they haven't shared them with me. I enjoy hosting and helping facilitate the best time. I feel real bad for this guest as the sump pump alarm warning did go off as the the sump pump failed. It is outside, but right next to a bedroom and they had trouble sleeping. I wish he had called me the first night. I asked if he had tried a couple things and his response was that he had and that it was okay and that they wouldn't sleep in that room. Maybe at that point he wanted me to suggest more. In hindsight I should have asked if he wanted me to send someone that night. By the way he was talking, my guess is that he would have said it's alright. If he wanted me to send a repairman that night, I would have. That same night the house alarm battery was low and chirped to say so, again making it hard to sleep. In over two and a half years neither of these problems has ever happened to any guest, and it shouldn't happen again. I will be replacing the alarm battery on a yearly schedule so that doesn't happen again, and the pump, which was 12 years old when it failed, will get replaced every 6 years. I will fix any problem with any guest that asks me to. There's only been 3 problems in 2 and 1/2 years, this one being the biggest. I give my cell number to all guests and I have always responded quickly. I am 40 minutes away and I have a handyman and a couple friends that are in Santa Cruz and available. As far as common living spaces, there are 3, and they are very comfortable. 8 in any one living area is doable, but a squeeze. I usually have groups of 8 and they love it. We love it, that's why we own the house. After this gentleman's stay I asked how I could make amends and offered a free stay. I had no hint that he was so upset and felt I was absent.

We had such a great time here. Very convenient to beach and Santa Cruz area. Having wet suits and beach supplies available for use was an added plus! We would absolutely stay here again ! Thanks again Glen!

Best vacation home ever!

  • 5 of 5

This vacation home has everything you need for a fun and relaxing stay in Santa Cruz. We were impressed by the full range of supplies in the kitchen, the surfboards and sand toys for the kids, and the outdoor shower. The beach is a 2 minute walk away! The home is really comfortable, very clean, and well set up for family life. I cannot fault anything. We are so sad to be leaving and will be back! Thanks Glenn for a great stay in Santa Cruz.

Great House for Santa Cruz 70.3!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great house! We had a decent-sized crew race the Ironman 70.3 Santa Cruz race and this place was perfect. There were enough bathrooms and space for everyone. The house was well maintained and the owner was easy to work with - no issues at all - highly recommend!

Perfect beach getaway!

Glenn provides all the extra items to make a getaway feel like your second home. Very comfortable house with separated areas for privacy among other people staying with you. I would definitely return.

Vacation Heaven

  • 5 of 5

We loved this property and its location! It is within walking distance to the Boardwalk, Seabright Beach and a few restaurants. We even walked (longer) to the wharf to see the sea lions and pier. Also a short drive to the Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park in the mountains. Glenn and Abby were wonderful hosts answering all of our questions. The house is clean and fully stocked with everything you would need for an ocean adventure or quiet evening at the house. We will be back!

Car: recommended

We chose this house as it is in the perfect location for walking. The Santa Cruz Beach boardwalk, the harbor, the beach, and downtown Santa Cruz are an easy walk.

A car is not necessary unless you want to go 15 minutes inland to The Forest of Nicene Marks, 90 minutes to San Francisco, 90 minutes to Monterey or Carmel, or 40 minutes to Silicon Valley.
