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!

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!

Wonderful stay at this house

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the house for 7 nights & had a fabulous time! The location is fabulous - the street goes down directly to the Twin Lakes beach & it is close to all the restaurant and shopping. It was perfect for our family of 4 with 2 bedrooms & 2.5 bath. Laurie the owner was great! Thank you for making our vacation such a wonderful experience!

Perfect Vacation House

  • 5 of 5
The design of the house was perfect for us. Upstairs, on either side of the house, were two bedrooms with their own bathrooms. This made for a sound proof house. The downstairs living room and 1/2 bath had everything anyone may desire. But the location of the house was magnificent. Our grandkids(10 & 8) could run down to "scope out" the beach and report back within mins. We hope to rent this house again and would recommend it to all. Kudos to the owner who was set up a perfect vacation home and is very nice to work with.

This home was perfect for us!

  • 5 of 5
We loved the Blacks Beach retreat home. The neighborhood was really quiet and the locals we met were very friendly. It's close to the beach and a comfortable walk to the harbor. The kitchen has everything we needed and we especially liked the private patio. The bedroom was spacious and comfy and we also liked the directtv feature. We would recommend this home to our friends and family.

Best Beach in Santa Cruz

  • 5 of 5
Twin Lakes has always been my favorite beach in Santa Cruz. It is rarely crowded because there are so few places to (legally) park. I know because of all the parking tickets I got here when I was a teenager! But, now that I'm a grown up with my own family, I was thrilled to find this house at such a reasonable rental price. We definitely overpacked because half the beach stuff we brought was sitting right there in the garage available to us. The owner was great to work with and we will be coming back again.
