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 Santa Cruz

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.

Great house, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at the house! Quick walk to the beach and great local restaurants. Our party of 7 were very comfortable. Kitchen is well stocked and Glenn is incredibly thorough when it comes to your stay. He thinks of everything and was easily available if we had any questions. We would definitely rent this property again and recommend it to our friends.

Beautiful home in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for us and another family for the week. It is in a great location with lots of activities and restaurants within walking distance. The house was clean and there is a bonus garage with a TV, games, bikes, wetsuits and beach toys which were perfect for us. Glenn was patient and accommodating to all our questions and responded quickly when we had questions prior to our rental. The master bedroom is beautiful and the guest bedrooms are small, but inviting. With so much to see and do in the area, no one spent much time in their rooms anyways. I would definitely recommend this house to friends and family and our kids are already asking when we can go back and stay again.

Beautiful home in a fabulous location!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best weekend in Santa Cruz at Glenn's home. It was in walking distance to several restaurants and so close to the beach. The home was perfect for our family. We loved the decor and the home felt so warm and inviting. We can't wait to stay again! Thank you for sharing your home with us!

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have been happier with this place. It is a few houses up from Seabright beach and the house itself is impeccable. the house is stocked with every thing you need to play at the beach, cook meals, and relax at home. We stayed here with our 3 kids ages 13, 10 and 3 and our close friends that have a toddler. The house is set up perfectly for 2 families. With the basement having the perfect set up for our bigger family and the upstairs master bedroom for the smaller family. We all can't wait to come back next year! Thanks Glenn and family!

The Perfect Beachhouse

  • 5 of 5

Every year, three of my best friends and I find a beachhouse in the neighborhood near Seabright Beach to rent for several days. The area evokes childhood memories for all of us, so it's important that we find a beautiful, welcoming, nicely-accommodated and well-equipped place. Our search has ended! This airy rental has been our favorite. Not only is it superbly located near the beach (two blocks straight down to Seabright), it has everything one needs, and more. It has thoughtfully upgraded, modern and tasteful decor, comfortable beds, a wonderful functional kitchen, an inviting backyard deck with gas BBQ, beautiful master bedroom with small front balcony, and an outdoor shower for rinsing off sand. We loved the whole house music system. Another huge plus for us were the four cruiser-style bikes which we rode almost daily. (Great ride up to Natural Bridges State Beach along West Cliff bike path). This place does have stairs, up to the Master Bedroom; down to two bedrooms and family/TV room, so might not be best if a family member can't deal with stairs. While no kids were with us, it would be very accommodating what with the "kid/teen" TV and game set up in the garage. Two nice sofas, very (very!) organized storage for boogie boards, wetsuits, board games, low beach chairs, a rolling cooler, (beach towels in linen closet downstairs), bikes, helmets, bike pump, etc. The owners have thought of everything, are very responsive and so organized. We selfishly almost don't want to be too glowing, it's such a find.

This was such a great place to stay in Santa Cruz, easy walking distance to Seabright Beach, comfortable walk to the Santa Cruz Boardwalk, bikes available for your use (no need to rent) as well as wet suits and all the beach "stuff" you would need for individual or family fun. The "cottage" was cozy and inviting, next best thing to home. The owners made our stay easy and were available to us if needed. Beds were comfortable, kitchen was well equipped, much better than staying in a hotel. We'll be back on our next trip to Santa Cruz.

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.
