About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-8)

The Harbor Beach House and Cottage w/hot tub is located just footsteps (70 feet, or three houses) from the best beach in Santa Cruz. The property has two buildings for one rental fee: a two bedroom house (sleeps four to six), a studio cottage (sleeps two), a sun porch with a view of the waves curling onto the shore, a HOT TUB and two garden patios. This is the perfect site for an extended family getaway or for friends vacationing together. The beach offers constant entertainment or quiet romantic walks.

Bonfire Beach; Wednesday Night Sailboat Races; Sunday Morning Hawaiian Outrigger Club Workouts. Outstanding and popular beach and harbor view restaurants; Bakery/coffee house with tables on the sand
Beach volleyball; Kayak rentals; Bait/boat shop; Tennis (three minute walk); Children's Park w/ Pirate Ship Play Structure (three minute walk); Nearby Schwann Lake Lagoon for kayaking, hiking,or fishing; One mile walk to Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk; Centrally located- ten minutes to downtown Santa Cruz or Capitola Village.

Come and enjoy a day of beach fun and return to a home away from home, immaculate and cozy, for a hot tub and a BBQ on the back patio. Later, build a bonfire on the beach or visit The Crow's Nest to listen to music and dance. A trip to the Boardwalk is always in order or an evening stroll along the yacht harbor(keep an eye out for playful sea otters in the harbor). I love to start my day with an early morning walk along the surf and a cup of coffee at beachside coffee house/bakery,The Kind Grind. Your week can be as quiet and romantic, or active and exciting as you prefer. Come and enjoy this seaside getaway!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1987

About the owner: My husband, Reed, and I live in Santa Cruz on the Westside and have three sons. We love the beach and particularly enjoy the Twin Lakes Beach area with bonfires at night and great ocean front dining.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This beach property is located just 70 footsteps to one of the most fun and picturesque beaches in the central coast. It has gorgeous sandy beaches and great local dining. The nearby yacht harbor provides entertainment, Wednesday Regattas, and ocean access. The property has a 2 bedroom house and a studio cottage so that everyone who stays has both privacy and community. The hot tub offers a perfect way to unwind at night as the fog rolls in and blankets the beach. The house is so close to the beach that the sound of waves lulls me to sleep. So relaxing!
