  • Beach Glass House is an All-around Winner

    "We have rented vacation homes in the Santa Cruz/Aptos areas for nine years. Beach Glass House is--hands down--the best of all our rental experiences. The home is spacious, light, and decorated with very appealing beach decor. The owner is very responsive, and two minor issues were resolved swiftly and completely. The beach is a short walk from the front door (+/- 5 minutes), although there is a bit of a scramble over large rocks to get to the sand. This home is wonderful for the entire family, although it would not work for anyone with serious mobility issues, due to the stairs up to the front door and the interior spiral staircase to the upper and lower floors. That said, we loved it, and our group of 10 included five children from 1-1/2 to 11-1/2 years and 5 adults, including grandparents (us), ages 30s to 70. The owners have thoughtfully provided a variety of beach gear--sand toys, boogie and skim boards, etc. There is also a pool table and a ping pong table. There is a single, large flat-screen TV in the loft, and I actually enjoyed the absence of a TV in the master bedroom and living room! The back yard is very nicely landscaped, and the hot tub was a huge hit. There is a hand-held, warm-water outdoor shower next to it with a flexible hose for rinsing off before enjoying the hot tub and heading indoors.The home's location is also excellent from a convenience standpoint. It is ten minutes or less to Trader Joe's, Whole Foods, supermarkets, or the Boardwalk, and equally close to a large number of restaurants. All of these can be accessed via city streets, making it possible to avoid the ever-present traffic snarl on Highway 1. We also enjoyed the upstairs deck, complete with umbrella table, gas barbecue, and outdoor heater. Oh, did I mention that it also boasts a view of the ocean?!! In short, look no farther than Beach Glass House. We returned home yesterday and have already booked for next summer!!!"

  • Perfect Home for Lifelong Friends

    "6 of my lifelong friends from Vancouver, Seattle, North of San Fran and Denmark (in US for the year) embarked on a long weekend in Santa Cruz. The house was perfect for us with 4 bathrooms (6 ladies can be difficult to accomodate) and 4 bedrooms with additional pull out couch options, etc. This house is the perfect home away from home with its open concept and proximity to the ocean, restaurants, yoga options, etc. I would only recommend comfortably acommodating no more than 8 adults in the home, but could easily handle additional kids in the mix. It had tons of dining seating (table for 12), 3 couches around the fireplace, 8 bar stools at the bar and open kitchen. I can't say anything more positive about our stay there. I could see where parking might be an issue in busier times of the year (ie. summer/daytime) but for us it worked out fine. We had a slight issue with the programmed lighting system, but management was extremely accomodating, although I would suggest adding the fix solution to the paperwork/instruction sheets. Overall, big big thumbs up."

  • Lovely cottage near the water.

    "Our recent stay at Laurie's place was perfect. The cottage is about a 5-10 minute drive to the boardwalk and located next door to the owner's place, so very convenient if any needs arise. The cottage itself is tastefully decorated and fully outfitted with everything we needed to comfortably accommodate six people. The owner was very sweet, checking in on us a couple of times to see if we needed anything. She even offered use of the adjacent outdoor space if we wanted to barbecue, but we never used it. Everyone in our party was very pleased with the rental and I wouldn't hesitate to come back in the future!"
