About The Owner

We originally built the 'Seabright Cottage' as a gathering place for extended family and friends. My parents bought the lot in 1971, and the (very small) shack built there was demolished to make way for the new house 30 years later.

As a vacation rental, our visitors get the opportunity to enjoy the ocean, beach, great places to eat, parks, Harbor, etc. as much as we do.

We visit frequently from our home in Truckee. Our kids love the transition from the mountains to the ocean environment, and spend countless hours at Seabright Beach, a 5 minute walk from our house, and down the steps to the beach. We love our friendly little neighborhood; the well maintained gardens are colorful and a joy to inspect on our daily walks to the beach!

The Boardwalk is also within walking distance. We enjoy visiting Steamer's Lane (close to the Boardwalk), where all of the locals surf.

Occasionally, we go Downtown to hear music, see a movie, go to the bookstore, or browse the many little shops.

My husband is a General Contractor and keeps the Cottage in ship shape. Our good friend, Debbie, is our on-site Manager, and lives close by.

I spend time in my home office year round working on the maintenance,upkeep, and rentals of Seabright Cottage.

In addition, I spend winters as a ski instructor at Squaw Valley USA, and occasionally teach for Disabled Sports USA at Alpine Meadows ski area.

I enjoy providing our tenants with a great place to stay in Santa Cruz.

The Owner purchased this house in 1971

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5
Loved staying here - so close to the beach and nicely removed from the boardwalk area.
Having the kids videos was a fantastic way to occupy my daughter in the early hours of the morning (jetlag!)

Back yard is small so there isn't a huge amount of sun to be had there in the evenings.

A great stay

  • 5 of 5
Since we have stayed in Santa Cruz many times, we had a lot to compare to. We have stayed in the Harbor area and a few properties by West Cliff. We loved this area in Seabright which was both quiet as well as totally convenient to beaches and a great little town. The house is in good shape with all the needed extras in the kitchen and nice sheets and towels. The owner was very accommodating and responded quickly to all inquiries.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5
Our family of five (2 adults and 3 kids) fit comfortably into this home and had so much fun that no one wanted to leave and they still talk about it 2 months later! It is located literally 2 blocks from the beach. The Boardwalk is a quick 10-15 minute walk and with a 2 and 4 year old it was all quite manageable. The home is clean with an open lay-out and had plenty of mix-match sleeping arrangements for the kids. The neighborhood was well kept and quite at night. Having the driveway was a bonus so no worries about finding some where to park the car. Manager was very professional, responsive and personable. The whole vacation was fun, relaxing and low stress... what more can you ask for with 3 kids :-)

Owner's Response: It is so wonderful that this family was able to take advantage of the great location; even with their young kids, they were able to walk to most of the venues they wanted to go to.

Very nice beach cottage close to everything!

  • 5 of 5
This was our first time renting a house in Santa Cruz and we were not sure what to expect. However, working with the people renting the cottage was super easy! Once we arrived we found a very nice clean house that everyone enjoyed for the entire week. The girls (ages 5 and 8) really enjoyed being in walking distance to both the beach and the boardwalk. I would definitely rent this cottage again.
