Property description

The highlight of Holiday House is the view that you will enjoy from every room, and the very large deck set up for your relaxation, dining, whale watching, listening to bird song, and marveling at the sunset..followed by the twinkling lights of Santa Cruz up the shore. Your walk to the sand is about 250 yards, and down a "secret" stair access to Manresa State Beach. Surf, or watch the surfers, beach comb, fly a kite, surf cast: public access beach extends for more than 11 miles! Time spent indoors will be enhanced by the cozy fireplace, comfortable sofas and dining space, wall mounted 42" smart tv for movies and sports, and lots of books, games, and puzzles. Seriously cute and comfortable to visit, this house has a vintage modern vibe that is designed to be efficient, interesting, and welcoming. It was built in the 70's and features some original finishes and some newer. The 2 bedrooms are furnished with queen beds with brand new mattresses, bedding, and pillows, a (one bedroom has an additional twin with trundle bed for a family) and the 1.5 baths are clean and well-appointed with plenty of higher quality towels and lighting. The kitchen is outfitted to cook 3 meals a day with virtually all the tools you expect, if you like that sort of thing! There is a washer and dryer on site, and a garage for your bikes or surfboards so you can unload and clean and lock 'em up.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2015

About the owner: Your hosts are Kevin and Lori Breen, their daughter Lark, and Australian Shepherd Arlo. They chose this house because of the ocean view and dog-friendly (leash) beach access! Having recently purchased and furnished Holiday House, they realize the limits of their "free" time to enjoy it, and are opening it to others who share their ideas of a great place to recreate and relax. Kevin is a Golf Course Superintendent, Lori is a mobile Notary/Signing Agent, Lark is a high school student, and Arlo is the chaser of geese at Kevin's course. All four have different ideas of a perfect Holiday day, but sunset on the deck can't be beat.

Why the Owner Chose La Selva Beach, CA, USA:
It starts with the view and ends with the view, but the other factors were the peaceful and idyllic little neighborhood, the beautiful heather fields to the east, the pastoral few minutes on San Andreas Road through the eucalyptus groves, strawberry fields, and peeks of the ocean as you drive in from Highway 1. It is convenient to all that Santa Cruz offers without being near loud bars, restaurants, or college students...and Monterey has a different collection of draws: golf, the world famous aquarium, galleries and shops, 17 mile drive. But the best places we have found to enjoy are right in Aptos and Rio del Mar: Deluxe Foods, great BBQ, awesome breakfast joints, and lots of good vibes.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Surfers! Walk about 250 yards to Manresa State Beach. 20 min or less to all the other great breaks in Santa Cruz County. The beach is public access for 11 miles...lots of beach combing, kite flying, surf casting, boogie boarding, beach bonfires, whatever you like! Only 15 minutes from all the draws of Santa Cruz and Capitola: Beach Boardwalk, Downtown Santa Cruz, Natural Bridges Monarch Walk, Pasatiempo for golf, Forest of the Nicene Marks in Aptos for destination mountain biking. If you travel south, just 20-30 minutes away is Elkhorn Slough for wildlife and kayaking, 15 min further to Monterey and the world renowned aquarium, famous golf courses (Pebble Beach, Poppy Hill, Spyglass)
