Perfect for our family

  • 5 of 5

We travelled to Santa Cruz for son's graduation from UC Santa Cruz. This property is fantastic. We had my school-age children and their half-sister, a toddler. The house is clean, well-equipped, well-appointed and spacious. The little yard is fabulous for kids. The beach was wonderful and we appreciated the beach toys and towels. My son was able to join us for dinner and we wee able to accommodate him as if it were home. We so appreciate this place and look forward to coming back in the future just for a vacation!

Great spring break!!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent 5 wonderful days in this rental. It was myself, my husband and our 2 children ages 13 and 10...plus our dog! We have stayed in a few places in Santa Cruz and this was our favorite! Only a couple of minutes walk to a beautiful beach, all the amenities we needed, great beds, and nice showers. We rode our bikes one day to the pier, and walked to the harbor and lighthouse a few times. What a great trip. We will definitely stay here again!!

Great beach house

Lovely place to stay just a few feet from the beach. The home had everything we needed and the beds were super comfortable. Perfect for a family of 4.

Great house

  • 5 of 5

What a great spot! It's just a few houses down from an awesome beach. We were back and forth multiple times a day- never missed a sunset. Also very close to downtown, the boardwalk, good restaurants, markets, etc. We love this house! It had everything we needed and we enjoyed many meals at home-- we barbecued, bought crab from the harbor, got food from the taco bar, etc. All great! Thank you so much.

Blacks Beach Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of three and stayed at the Blacks Beach Retreat to serve as a home base for our visits to UC Santa Cruz, Monterey Aquarium, and Big Sur. The house was a perfect haven for us to return to each afternoon, and there is nothing like falling asleep to the sound of the crashing waves each night. The house is roomy, clean, and has pretty much everything one needs for a vacation near the beach. The state beach itself is just a few hundred feet away from the house and there are also restaurants, a small market and even a farmers market (on Sunday) just down the street to make things very convenient. We would definetly stay here again and want to thank Laurie (who is great to deal with) for extending her home to us as we had a great time at the Blacks Beach Retreat!
