About Colm Kennedy

Our family has been coming to the beaches around Santa Cruz for 25 years and has always dreamed of owning a slice of the beach life. We fell in love with this classic beach house with its light-filled rooms and open floor plan. The neighborhood and the neighbors are fantastic, and it's just a short walk to one of the best beaches on the north coast. We love spending our weekends relaxing by the ocean with friends and family and are excited to open our home to guests who share our passion for beach life.

Colm Kennedy purchased this cottage in 2015

Perfect getaway bungalow

Stayed for a local wedding with 4 people, enjoyed the space immensely. Clean, cute, and so much fun to have the games and backyard built for entertaining. We'll definitely be back!

Magical beach cottage in Aptos

  • 5 of 5

I can only offer rave reviews about the Kennedy Beach cottage. The house was perfect for a mini-getaway with my mother and 2 young daughters. The weather was just ok, so we took advantage of both the beach as well as the cozy fireplace in the home. The house was immaculate, with a terrific kitchen in the middle of the home. We were comfortable and the kids LOVED the hammock and outdoor space. Thank you for sharing your home! We look forward to another stay, hopefully sooner than later.

Great vacation. This house worked perfectly for the five of us. My three kids loved the backyard and outdoor shower! It was perfect distance to the beach and Marianne's ice cream. We tried 10 flavors amongst the five of us and only 95 to go. We will definitely look at renting this spot again in the future!

Great getaway near the beach.

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at the Kennedy Beach House and had a terrific time. The house was just as described and perfect for our party of four. The inside was great and the outside even better. The hammock setup and bocce ball court were wonderful; plenty of cool sitting/eating areas. The location is near the beach and easy to get to and of course, you have to visit Marianne's Ice Cream shop. We'd definitely stay there again. Thanks for a memorable time.
