About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 9-10)

This nearly new custom three bedroom, two and a half bath home is a high tech masterpiece with flat screen TVs in each bedrrom and living room, DSL, cordless phones, fully appointed gourmet kitchen with granite slabs and high quality creature comforts everywhere. Walk to the Twin Lakes Beach - one of the few that allows bonfires at night; find fine and casual dining opportunities and oceanview bar at the premier Santa Cruz restaurant, The Crow's Nest, with stores, shopping and breakfast and lunch cafes all within walking distance. The Boardwalk amusement park is a 10 minute drive.

The Twin Lakes Beach is one of the best beaches anywhere, accommodating sports and relaxation in and out of the water. Lifeguards are on-site on most Summer days, making it one of the safest beaches in Santa Cruz.

Rent surfing and sailing devices and book chartered trips on the Monterey Bay at the Santa Cruz Yacht Harbor next to the beach.

Come home and watch movies, play games or surf the web (bring your laptop!). Whether it's time to walk home from the Crow's Nest at midnight or an early end to a long beach day, you can always relax, regroup and sleep in peace when you get back to the quiet, comfortable and peaceful Beach Harbor Villa.

About Jim Chubb

I bought this lot in 2005 and build a custom 3 bedroom home designed by a locally famous architect. The home feels much larger than the 1350 square feet due to the high ceiling in the living room/dining room. I am a mortgage/real estate broker and my specialty is exceeding customer expectations every day so let me know how I can do this for you! Find my website at , my weekly column on Sunday in the Santa Cruz Sentinel and reach me anytime at 1-800-368-REFI. Jim Chubb, owner

Jim Chubb purchased this house in 2005

Why Jim Chubb chose Central Coast

Quiet street; yet walking distance to the beach and great restaurants and entertainment

What makes this house unique

This home is located in close proximity to the beach and fine restaurants with entertainment yet in a quiet neighborhood that is off the beaten path. Everything you need for a great Santa Cruz experience

Guestbook comments from the owner

We met family in Santa Cruz as a half way point for a reunion and couldnt have been more pleased with this home. The location was wonderful; close to everything yet private and quiet. The yard was perfect for BBQs and entertaining. The kitchen great! Beds were very comfortable and I was very impressed with the clenliness of the home and yard. The owners were very nice and available whenever we called. We would definately recommend stay here to anyone.

A Convenient Place to Stay in Santa Cruz

  • 5 of 5

Aside from some minor matters, the property met our expectations. It's a quick walk to Twin Lakes beach, and only a couple of minutes by car to the Boardwalk. It was in a quiet neighborhood, and the house is relatively new. This property allows pets on its first floor and our critters had a great time, although our activities wore them out. The owner was very attentive to our wishes and addressed some minor concerns we had. So we had a great stay.

This property was as it looked online. Clean, spacious and welcoming.

  • 4 of 5

I was pleasantly surprised when I arrived at the Villa. It was very clean, and bigger than anticipated.

The home was very comfortable, backyard very nice and spacious, and the bedrooms upstairs were restful and relaxing.

All the bathrooms were big and clean. Added bonus to have a washer and dryer.

This home is in a prime location just a few short blocks to the beach which was fabulous.

The owners were responsive when I had a bit of trouble with the internet.

Overall, I would recommend and stay at the Villa again.

Great home, updated, modern and comfortable.

We thought the house very clean and nice. We liked the open layout with the loft-like upstairs.

  • 5 of 5

We had two families with children and the kids loved the bunk beds and the couch beds. The back yard was just the right space for the kids to play. The kitchen was great! It was big and roomy with lots of cabinet space and lots of utensils and appliances. The open floor plan of the downstairs was really nice for our family to spend time together. We had a great time and recommend this house.
