About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

An elegant, peaceful retreat awaits you in this beautifully appointed beach house. The three bedroom, two bath vacation rental sits in an unusually quiet residential area with access to all of the area’s most popular attractions: It is located three blocks from Twin Lakes Beach (with lifeguards and fire pits) and half a mile from the Santa Cruz Yacht Harbor. It’s just five minutes from the Boardwalk amusement park, Capitola Village, and lively downtown Santa Cruz; ten minutes from redwood forests with miles of hiking and biking trails; a 40-minute drive from Monterey Bay Aquarium; and a 35-minute drive from the San Jose Airport.

This comfortable, beautifully decorated house includes a fully equipped kitchen with concrete counters and upscale appliances - everything you need to entertain at home. All three bedrooms have their own private decks, cable TV, and VCR. Downstairs floors offer radiant heat, and a cozy gas fireplace in the living room. If you have to bring your work with you, the upstairs loft/office offers high-speed DSL, an Apple computer, and fax machine.

The fenced in backyard has a private hot tub, you can relax under the star, as well as a picnic table for outdoor dining and BBQ. There is even a wagon provided with sun chairs and toys to make your beach vacation complete. Linens and towels provided. Just bring your swimsuits and enjoy! Sleeps one to eight people. This is a non smoking, dog friendly house (with owner approval).
