SERENE IN SANTA CRUZ - RELAX IN COMFORT & STYLE

Santa Cruz House Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, sleeps 4 (Queen, trundle)

We offer a clean, updated, modern-style, bungalow in a quiet cul-de-sac neighborhood just four and one-half blocks from the beach. Walk through the greenbelt to the beach or continue the walk along picturesque West Cliff Drive to Natural Bridges State Park or the lighthouse and the surfers. Relax in the morning with a cup of coffee on the front porch, gazing at the lush garden. Read a book, paint a picture, journal, let your mind wander. This is the place to unwind from the busy-ness of life.

Don't forget the sunscreen because the Westside is famous for avoiding the fog, especially in the Fall when the days are warm and the nights cool. Barbecue at the end of a beach day and sleep soundly in the well appointed, modern rooms with the faint sound of seals in the distance. We encourage mature renters who respect the full-time residential neighborhood. Couples will love this quiet get-away. We love the relaxed and easy-going area and imagine you will too.

Suitability:
  • non smoking only
  • suitable for elderly or infirm
  • children welcome
  • Low Allergen Environment
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • pets not allowed

We love our home and are happy to share its comfort with renters. We've furnished the home to be beautiful and practical for people who want that from their rental experience. Our style is modern with clean lines, fashionable furnishings and comforting colors. We surf, take long walks and bike to the beach, all of which is so easy to do from our home.

Barbara purchased this house in 2004

The cul de sac location is great for kids so they can more safely play in the streets. There is a playground a block away and that's a favorite for kids, too. We like the ocean and can hear the distant seals at night from the Boardwalk but are not disturbed by crashing waves.

Very Modern
Short bike ride to the Pier or a healthy walk
Clean living space
Parking
Nice Neighbors
Perfect for family as the price is the same as a hotel but you have the kitchen and washer/dryer
Safeway is 1-2 miles I think
Local Deli is 2-3 blocks away

Comfortable, cozy cottage has everything you need.

Barbara was easy to work with and very responsive. THe cottage is very well maintained and super clean. I loved the lanscaping and flora. There is plenty of parking on the street even for our daily guests (we had family in the area). Our family of 3 rented over Christmas week and we had our kids from Oakland down for dinners. The dining table easily seats 6 and the kitchen is well stocked with everything you need for cooking a feast for 6. Plenty of towels and paper products supplied as well.
The beds are comfy and there is laundry facilities in the house. Just be aware this is a small cottage. We had to unpack our luggage into the closets and move the luggage out into the laundry/mud room as there is no extra space in the bedrooms. But the living room is spacious and has ample seating.
The neighborhood is quiet and it is a 4 block walk through a little park to the West Cliff drive/ocean.
I would recommend this property!!

First off, I never write reviews of anything, ever. But we had such a wonderful time in this home I just have to!

This home is clean, modern, and the owners thought of everything to make it comfortable. The space is small, but it worked perfectly for my husband, myself and our two sons. We loved the location-- it's a short walk to the beach, a playground and a really nice market. And the owner is so nice! She was genuinely interested in making sure our stay was enjoyable! Which it was, and we can't wait to come back!

Serenity cottage is very aptly named

We would recommend this quiet, clean, well-appointed little home -away from -home to anyone.
Whenever we would search for something it was readily available and the finishing touches make this comfortable cottage just right for a beach stay.
The neighborhood is quiet and residential, close to the beach and to shopping.
The notes and tips book on the dining room table gave great advice about local sights to see and restaurants.
But my favorite thing of all was the lovely front garden where I could do my tai chi at sunrise to the sound of barking sea lions that hold court on rocks by the lighthousea short walk away.

Our pleasant hostess was available for any questions we had and answered my emails cheerfully and quickly.
We would definitely recommend Serenity Cottage to friends and look forward to revisiting ourselves soon.

We enjoyed our stay at Serene in Santa Cruz. It is close to the beautiful West Cliff Drive with the Lighthouse, Municipal Wharf and Boardwalk and a good base to explore both the coast and inland. The house was clean, nicely presented with all the required appliances you would expect and lots of hot water for showering.

Nice touches such as the provision of both beach and bath towels was appreciated and had we wished, there were bikes to ride in the shed. Our lads used the body boards in the surf. In all, a nice place to stay for week and close to a very beautiful part of the northern California coast.
