Quiet, comfortable family home in beautiful La Selva Beach. Play on the beach, walk on the bluff, play games or just relax and read a book by the fire. Our home is just a short walk through a private gate to a broad sandy beach. The beach joins Manresa State Beach to the south and is ideal for long walks, surfing, skim boarding, frisbee, and playing in the sand.
After a day at the beach, enjoy a barbecue on the deck or cook in our small, but fully stocked kitchen. The open family room has a wood stove and plenty of wood for fires, lots of games and a variety of books to read during your stay.
There is a sweet little playground down the single lane road, with a basketball court, swings and play equipment. Around the corner, the bluff offers a panoramic view of all of Monterey Bay.
The house has three bedrooms -- one with a queen bed, one with a double bed, and the third small bedroom most suitable for kids, with a small built in twin bed and a futon on the floor. The furnishings are simple and casual.
The little town of La Selva Beach is just twelve miles south of Santa Cruz, convenient to several state parks, the University of California at Santa Cruz and the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. Monterey, and its wonderful Aquarium, is just a 40 minute drive to the south.
We booked for a last minute family trip over Memorial Day weekend and the owners and the property were fantastic. The rental process was fast and easy. You also have private beach access which was awesome. Only wish they allowed dogs. We will be back.
We absolutely LOVE this little beach house gem! I hesitate to rave too much about it because we want to keep it for ourselves! Being at the La Selva Beach community is like stepping back in time--sweet, safe, and quiet. Our kids love going there because they can explore and have fun without us constantly having to worry about them getting hit by a car. The house is not posh, so if you're looking for luxury, this is not the place, but it is VERY comfortable and stocked with everything from wine glasses to sweet little silver trays. We had old friends over for dinner and they remarked that they felt like they were in our home. We are so grateful to Sue and her family for sharing this little jewel by the sea with us!
This is a perfect house for a family. Plenty of space with a fenced yard. Beautiful private beach where dolphins were swimming by.
The owner was very helpful. We were a last minute reservation and she was quick to communicate with me.
This is my new favorite place for a long weekend.
It is actually a lot bigger than the photo's make it look, and is set up for family vacations. On hand we found games and bocci ball sets, and actually Steve and I played Scabble on our wedding night before going to bed.
I'd recommend this place to my friends and visiting relatives any time, and maybe might stay there again if the opportunity arises, even if we already live in the area.
We've rented this home about 4 times so far and it has always been a lot of fun! It is extremely comfortable and offers a wonderful place to relax! Our four kids are always asking to come back!
There are a ton of beach towels (yeah! one less thing to pack), plus boogie boards and skim boards and sand toys. It's very quiet and offers a great back yard to BBQ and play. The kitchen is well stocked with everything necessary for a good time. LSB is absolutely a beautiful town to walk through....the perfect quiet "get-a-way"! The owners are very friendly, helpful and attentive to the needs of their guests. It's at least a "once a year" tradition now, though the kids would like it to be more (and we would too!) Thank you Sue! It's always a pleasure.:)
We stayed at this wonderful place in La Selva Beach for a family reunion. We found the house to be just as it looks in the pictures, and the description of the house and location are accurate. This is an older and charming house, a short walk away from the beach in a quiet and woodsy area with plenty of parking space and a large back yard. The house was clean and cozy, and the owner was very responsive and helpful- which was great, as this was our first time renting through VRBO. The rental process was extremely easy, and we truly enjoyed our stay. The town of La Selva Beach is a short drive away from all the local attractions, and it was a great little quiet place to come back to after the hustle and bustle of the touristy places. We will most definitely consider renting this house again in the future.
