Our relaxing beach retreat - just a block from the beach - is tastefully decorated in a contemporary Balinese style with a soothing and warm tropical feel, and lacks of nothing. It is immaculate, quiet, and very comfortable.
A FIVE-STAR EXPERIENCE
It’s all in the details.
This remodeled beach home’s focus is on comfort and relaxation. It has a peaceful, tropical feel throughout that puts you at ease, accented with unique art and handcrafted furnishings.
A spacious, open-concept floor plan keeps you connected, and the welcoming living and dining areas encourage you to sit down and enjoy time together.
Prepare a meal in the well-stocked gourmet kitchen and then enjoy it in the Balinese-inspired dining room.
We provide soft white towels, high-thread count sheets, and a collection of quality personal bath care items. Robes and slippers will be waiting for you, too.
Beach Lover’s Retreat is another level of dog-friendly, with plush doggie beds, blankets and a dog-friendly beach just at the end of the street. Plus, our backyard is fenced for their safety and your convenience. One guest commented, “…my dog is still wondering why we had to come home.”
In-home entertainment abounds – provided are libraries of hit movies, children movies, and multi-genre music CDs for your enjoyment! We also have a large family game collection.
After a long day at the beach or the Boardwalk, gather around the outdoor fire pit.
There is a Weber gas grill for preparing your fresh catch-of-the-day from the Santa Cruz wharf and other finds from the nearby farmers’ markets.
Enjoy your meals around the backyard dining table next to the grill, and relax afterward in our lounge chairs.
The secure fenced backyard means you can let your children and four-legged companion run free. And there is an outdoor hot + cold shower for use after coming off the beach or when the pup has rolled in the sand all day.
IT’S YOUR KIND OF BEACH NEIGHBORHOOD
Our vacation home is located in a safe residential neighborhood that embraces the best of the “Santa Cruz vibe.” It’s very much a “wave and say hi” kind of place.
The beach’s sand and waves are right at the end of our street, just a block away. We’re within walking distance of 41st Avenue, the main artery in the area for restaurants, coffee houses and shops.
There’s plenty of parking with 3 on-driveway spots all your own.
We are located just 5 to 10 driving minutes from the Boardwalk and Capitola, and 15 minutes from the eclectic Pacific Street shopping / dining downtown area. The home is 50ish minutes from Monterey and Carmel.
YOU’LL BECOME A SANTA CRUZ INSIDER
We’ll provide you access to a customized smartphone and web app that is loaded with our Santa Cruz Insider’s Guide. Plus we are just a quick reply away with answers to any questions you may have.
And we give back to the Santa Cruz community - through donations to the Second Harvest Food Bank Santa Cruz County and the Land Trust of Santa Cruz County.
