The latter part of February marks our sixth visit to Villa Vista.

We have so enjoyed our time at the beach house, with a glorious view of the ocean, watching the Surfers and this year, we were mesmerized by the Maverick type waves.

The Condo is always spotlessly clean, tastefully furnished and has everything we could possible need for preparing any meals. It has become our annual getaway that we look forward to each year.

relaxing and beautiful

I have come many times to this beach house in Santa Cruz over the years and every year I come, I always feel sad upon departure morning. This beach house is located perfectly at the oceans edge with great access to the beach where you can enjoy all the activities one wishes to have with their families. I appreciate the fact that there are beach toys provided under the stairwell for when I bring my children with me. After a long day at the beach it's always nice to enjoy some time in the hot tub provided where I can relax and take in the view while feeling the ocean breeze on my face. Man times I have come here and enjoyed staying in just taking in the view from what this home has to offer, a breathtaking view from the living room by the rock fireplace makes this home so relaxing with the sound of the ocean waves. Venturing out to see the surrounding areas for shopping is always fun for me as Capitola, a small town filled with a variety of stores for clothing, toys, art, antiques, and food, is only a couple minutes of a drive or even a peaceful walk away from the beach house. all in all this is a beautiful and relaxing place to come and I look forward to many more visits with my friends and family here.

Fabulous place

  • 5 of 5

Villa Vista was fabulous. Great views. Quiet (away from the boardwalk/downtown area) yet close enough that one was close to great restaurants and other enjoyable activities. Kerstin was great and responded right away to any questions I had. Highly recommended.
