Getaway with Grandson

  • 5 of 5

My grandson (5 years) and I truly enjoyed every minute of our stay in this beautiful home. It was so well equipped with everything you need in the kitchen, the laundry room. The beds were comfy, living room was spacious and overall it was such a great home. We spent a lot of time out back on the deck/patio laughing and doing some arts and crafts. We walked to the beach everyday that was only 2 blocks away. We will be back for sure. We didn't want to leave.

Affordable and Adorable

  • 5 of 5

Darling little house located about 5-7 mins (walking) from the beach. The house is completely remodeled and the beach décor is especially cute. My husband and I stayed with our 2 kids (age 1 and age 2) and it was perfect for us; though if you have several adults it might be difficult with only the 1 bathroom. For us it certainly wasn't a problem. The layout of the house is also nice as it is an open concept with the kitchen and family room being connected; it made the house feel bigger. As the other reviewers mentioned, the house is located on a very busy street, but with the windows closed you cannot hear the traffic or the people walking past. There is a adorable white picket fence that really helps as a buffer from the people walking in front. The beds were all very comfortable, and there is a convenience store 2 houses down. I did however notice that the washing machine smelled moldy and it appeared that there was some black dirt (mold?) on the rim when you open the door. We would stay there again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. I appreciate your attention to detail. So glad you enjoyed yourself. Rest assured we are constantly wiping, drying, cleaning and bleaching to keep the washer fresh and clean. Front load washers can be a nuisance simply due to the design and need to be air tight. We have a new product we will be trying that should help. Sunny

Great Beach Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

This is my third stay at Santa Cruz but my first time in this house and we loved it! The decor is so nice, the beds are comfortable, the back yard is great, and it's convenient to have Deke's Deli and convenience store two doors away! We would definitely stay here again!

Beautiful inside!

  • 5 of 5

The inside of the house is decorated and updated very nicely! It is a quick walk to the beach, coffee shop and a small convenience store. I loved having a washer and dryer since the kids were constantly a mess from the beach. I would come here again in a heart beat! It was my husband, and our three kiddos (age 5, 3 and 6 months).

Perfect vacation getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here at the end of March 2017. We were really impressed by how nicely the house was updated and decorated. Had a very modern, beachy feel to it. The furniture and beds were very comfortable, and it's always nice to have all the amenities of a house for a price comparable to a decent hotel room. The location was very good, just a few blocks from the beach. There's a convenience store right next door that we utilized for milk, coffee and snacks. There's also a great restaurant a couple of blocks away that we ate at for breakfast that was delicious! It's a short drive to get to the Beach Boardwalk, Wharf, and Downtown Santa Cruz. We also visited Monterey while we were there and it was less than an hour drive to get there. I believe it is about an hour and a half from San Francisco as well, but we didn't drive there on this trip. The road that the house is on did get busy from time to time, but with the doors and windows closed, we could not hear any road noise. When we were there, we were able to open the windows and get a nice breeze going through the house, which kept it nice and cool. Overall, it was a great place to stay and I would highly recommend it to anyone thinking about renting.

Located in the "banana belt" known for sunshine year round, our newly remodeled beach house is a short five-minute walk to twin lakes beach, only a three-minute walk to the yacht harbor and popular crow's nest restaurant, and a mere fifteen-minute walk to the santa cruz beach boardwalk. There is also a local market with deli, dvd rentals and groceries just steps away. This location is excellent for family outings; jogging, swimming, body surfing, boogie boarding, volleyball, evening bonfires, and viewing incredible sunsets.

Stroll to the yacht harbor for sailing, kayaking, or stand-up paddling. Walk to the crow's nest for dinner or dancing to live music. Or take in a concert on the sand in front of the boardwalk. Santa cruz is also a favorite for premium wine-tasting and craft breweries, world-class surfing, mountain biking, and hiking.
