SUPER DARLING OCEANFRONT BEACH COTTAGE. CHEAPEST IN THE AREA!

Santa Cruz Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

This is truly a magical beach cottage and the quintessential beach experience in Santa Cruz which includes a full boat of amenities right down to the boogie boards and bicycles. Open Ocean View and located right on Moran Lagoon. Just a skip and a jump from main beaches, yet tucked away just enough for privacy. Wake up to the sounds of waves breaking. Have your first cup of coffee looking across a tree-lined lagoon to the Pacific Ocean. Walk down to the sandy beach for a swim. Then return home to warm up in the hot tub in your own private yard.

Nestled in eucalyptus trees next to Moran Lagoon, this home is truly one of a kind. The property has the feel of a private park, yet you're within easy walking distance to shops, movie theaters, Capitola Village, and even a mall. Stroll down the scenic East Cliff bike way. Watch surfers at world famous Pleasure Point. Our house is small and cozy. The yard is large and private. 850+ total square feet.

This is the lowest priced darling beach cottage in all of Santa Cruz. We have kept our low rates for 5 Summers now, and in light of of the current economy. This is a beloved private home and is used as a rental only in the summer months. The setting is priceless for family and/or adults.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Truly a great place to stay. Location was great to get places and the home was great set up for dining, we really took advantage of the area and stayed local, from Aptos beaches to cruising west cliff bike path, the boardwalk and an evening sail, great produce and fresh fish every night and a Betty Burger on the way out of town. Look forward to visiting again

Cozy beach cottage perfect for a family getaway

  • 4 of 5
My family rented this cottage at the last minute last summer as other vacation plans fell through. The owners were very accommodating and this cottage was the perfect find. My husband and I our 7 mos. old daughter along with mother-in-law and brother-in-law joined us on the trip. There was plenty of space and my brother-in-law got to enjoy the separate accommodations away from the main cottage to give him privacy from our little one.
All in all, I would highly recommend this home, it was spacious, lots of light, private backyard, walking distance to a killer beach, and quick drive to all the happening Santa Cruz hotspots (including downtown Capitola). Lots of great window shopping in downtown Capitola and we enjoyed evening sunset walks down to the beach to watch the surfers on the point. :)

Great Place Great Location

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful vacation get away without having to travel very far. Perfect for us, my daughter and family, including grand children. Plenty of room for everyone. Everything is so close the weather was perfect. The house was very clean and organized. Morning coffee on the back deck overlooking the lagoon was a must. Love the bike rides made possible by the bikes provided with the house. Walked to beach every day followed by a soak in the hot tub. Watching the Wizard of Oz one evening (included in the video library) with the grand kids was also a highlight. Needless to say, we will certainly be back again.

Everything needed for a low stress and high fun trip

  • 5 of 5
This beach cottage had everything we needed for a very comfortable stay. We enjoyed the sand and surf, bike trails, hot tub, nearby redwood forest parks, farmers markets, local beaches, boardwalk and more. It is well maintained, very clean and very functional for a family of 4 (2 teenagers). I'd recommend this place to friends and family.
Seeing a floor plan would have helped to figure out how you could sleep 8, but we were only 4 so I did not worry too much about that and it all worked out fine.

we had a great time here

  • 4 of 5
The location is superb, close to so many great beaches for boogie boarding and surfing. The cottage is filled with light, and views. The yard is private and a great hang out. The street is quiet. Overall, our stay was superb. The property is indeed clean and well-maintained. The only drawbacks were - the frig made a constant whine, and it's in the same room as the main bed, and... The beds were not very comfortable - 2 of us made do, but the 3rd member of our party did not sleep so well because of the beds. Better mattresses would make this a 5 star rating!

Owner's Response: We are always anxious to hear how our renters stay was and we look forward to rectifying any issues that were not up to par. We are getting the fridge checked out for the noise and will visit the possibility of getting a better mattress for the living room futon, but futons are not usually the best for mattress comfort. This was not the main bed, but we understand it being assumed as so, as it is so large and in the living area, actually. There are 3 other rooms with beds that are quite comfortable. All in all we welcome any and all ideas to make your stay a wonderful experience and hope you will check back with us in the Summers to come.

Great trip, perfect home and location

  • 5 of 5
My long time friend and I stayed here with each of our two children. We had a wonderful time - the house was sweet and tidy and the private front garden/patio was such a wonderful bonus space to be able to enjoy. The street was exceptionally quiet - the house is a perfect retreat while still being moments away from all the action Santa Cruz has to offer.
