About the Property

3 bedroom, 1.5 baths, Sleeps 6-8, 1000q ft beach bungalow, blocks to the ocean.

Newly remodeled beach bungalow, 950 sq ft, within short walking distance of West Cliff Drive, Natural Bridges, amazing Santa Cruz surfing, beaches, wine tasting & brewery, biking, shopping, and wonderful restaurants. See for more information about the area. The Boardwalk is about 1.5 -2 miles away. All new appliances. Please note that this house is located in a quiet residential neighborhood with no views. It is approximately a 4 block walk to the ocean , or a short drive. All beaches along West Cliff Drive require walking down stairs to access. We are close to Hwy 1 beaches, coastal farms, UCSC, hiking, mountain biking, and windsurfing.
This house has 2 bedrooms next to each other and a small bedroom in the front of the house. We have one shower inside. One outside for rinsing off sand. Please note that we do not accept 8 adult. We can do 6 adults and 2 kids , maximum. Read the bedroom description below and note that there is NO pull out couches in living room. It is too small to accommodate more than 6 adults comfortably.
IF this house is booked, check out our other brand new listing VRBO 854997, a few short blocks away or if you have a large group please consider renting both.
Please note the bed & Bedroom set up. The master has a queen bed, flatscreen TV, a large closet, sleeps 2 people. The 2nd bedroom in the front of the house has a full bed with a twin bed over it, sleeps up to 3 people, but please note it is a BUNKBED, and it is a SMALL room located in the front of the house with a small closet. The 3rd bedroom has NO closet. You can share with the master bedroom closet which has ample space-they share a common wall, this bedroom has a full bed,(sleeps up to 2 people) flat screen TV, and a loft. THE LOFT IS INTENDED FOR KIDS 8 and older who can navigate the ladder. The loft is open to the bedroom below. It has a steep ladder-please see pictures. The loft has to 2 twins. This is NOT meant for small children under the age of 8 and you should be comfortable with children sleeping and climbing in a loft with a very steep ladder. There is a small opening to get into the ladder, so a large person will not fit though it easily. You must feel comfortable with the opening to the loft which is right at the end of the twin bed. Please see the pictures. Also the loft ceilings are low-again MEANT FOR SCHOOL AGE KIDS
This is an brand new remodeled house and is a great space to relax, bring your family or small group of friends. Awesome backyard for hanging out and BBQing. Please note while it is amazing and adorable it is only about 950 sq ft and two of the bedrooms are quite small. I do not have pull out couches.

Across the street is the beginning of a green grass lined park path that cuts through to beach, a quick 5 minute walk or 2-3 minute bikeride to West Cliff Drive. West Cliff Drive is a famous running/walking and biking path along the ocean cliffs leading to the Santa Cruz Boardwalk and Natural Bridges that goes for over 4 miles.. Great brewery and 14 wine tasting rooms nearby (when open) with restaurants, bakeries, and fantastic natural foods New Leaf Grocery. Close to UCSC, Hwy 1 leading to more amazing beaches and Davenport, Open Space Wilder Ranch hiking/mtn biking, Seymour Marine Lab are all located close by. Downtown Santa Cruz and shopping just a short drive. Please look up location on google maps. It is a great place to relax, in a great location. A home away from home in a wonderful town.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2015

About the owner: I went to UCSC almost 30 years ago and fell in love with santa cruz. I try to spend as much time here as possible. I have been a property manager with rentals for over a decade. I had a vacation rental home on the east side of santa cruz for the 2 years (2012-2014), and recently purchased this adorable home in a fantastic neighborhood and location. I have plans for a total remodel later this year so it is only open 2015 spring-summer! During the Fall/winter remodel and be back for vacation rental in 2016 with an even better layout totally upgraded! I am a native california girl who grew up in Marin, went to college at UCSC graduating with a degree in biology, then moved to SF. I earned a master in nursing at Johns Hopkins University and had children, then moved back to the bay area 12 years ago. I currently live on the SF peninsula. We love this new home for its great location, wonderful area, proximity to surfing, shopping, restaurants, hiking, UCSC, etc.

Why the Owner Chose Circles, Santa Cruz, CA, USA:
Few blocks to West Cliff with world class surfing, gorgeous views, a bike and running/walking path that extends from the Boardwalk to Natural bridges with miles of coastal views. It is close to winery tasting rooms, bakeries,a brewery, restaurants, and in a super cute -safe neighborhood. Easy to get to downtown santa cruz from our house with more shopping and dining and entertainment options. The Wilder Ranch open space preserve is a few short minutes as well as hiking and camping in Big Basin This house is in a very safe, friendly neighborhood and we love being able to walk to everything or a short drive to downtown santa cruz or bike ride to surfing and the boardwalk. Natural Bridges and the Seymour Marine Lab, Surfing museum, and lighthouse are all within a short bike ride-walk.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Great outside space. Great location.A home away from home where you will enjoy brand new open kitchen-living room floor plan with 3 bedrooms and 1.5 bathrooms. Air conditioning, all new appliances, all new floors, ceilings, bathrooms, paint, and construction.
