About Lori Talbot

We are the Talbot family and live in the East Bay of San Francisco. When we bought our vacation rental our kids were 9 and 12, and we wanted a place we could all enjoy. We wanted to embrace the Santa Cruz life style with a beach house style home. I was born and raised in Hawaii and I wanted a home away from home. So the island decor fit perfect with the house location to the surf, beach and the Aloha Grill down the street. Our kids love the bunk beds and we made one of the rooms into a surfer decor to bring the Santa Cruz surf style to life. The beach, which is a short walk away was perfect for us. It has boogie boarding, surfing, great sand for sand castles and wonderful views. The beach has no public parking so it is inhabited by mostly locals and doesn't get to crowded. Also at night it is a great beach for bonfires.

Lori Talbot purchased this house in 2006

Why Lori Talbot chose Santa Cruz

There is nothing like listening to the waves crash on the shore or to watch the sunset. We wanted at place we could all enjoy as a family or with friends. What I have come to enjoy is sharing this house with guest from all over the country and the world. I truly enjoy all the wonderful comments we receive about the house. It has become a special place for many others who have stayed here. It is very comfortable, and relaxing. We try to have everything you would like on vacation at your finger tips. It is a great location for all generations. Not far is the Santa Cruz Boardwalk, which fun for all kids. The beach is great for swimming, catching waves, watching sea life and just taking a walk. We hope you come and stay and experience what we have enjoyed.

What makes this house unique

This house is a perfect place for people who want to spend time at the beach. The beach is only a short block away. It is a beautiful beach and wonderful for long walks and for all types of beach activities. The beach is not a crowded beach and is only for the locals in the area. The house itself is ideal if you are the type that wants to spend the night at home with BBQ on the outside deck with views of the beach, Plasma T.V. and a gourmet kitchen. Or if you like to go out at night the house is located 2 miles from Capitola, which is beach town loaded with lots of restaurants and shops. The Santa Cruz Boardwalk is located 3 miles and has activities for all generations. The benefit to staying at this house is the renovations, which allow you to be very comfortable and for the location to everything that Santa Cruz has to offer.

Great Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

The beach house was a perfect spot for a recent family gathering. Beautifully decorated and equipped, light, and clean. The outdoor patios with the views of the lagoon and ocean are wonderful. Great location! Beaches, restaurants, and Farmer's Market are within walking distance. The kitchen and dinning areas are clearly designed for folks who like to cook and hang out. Very relaxing place.

From the moment we arrived, we were already planning our next stay at this beautiful home. Now, after actually staying there, we know we'll be back! It is that wonderful.

Wonderful relaxing time in Santa Cruz

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in different location throughout Santa Cruz but the Hale Kai was by far our favorite house. The location was perfect - we watched the sunset every night one block away at 21st Street and walked to both Pleasure Point & 41st Street to surf everyday. The house had everything we needed and we thoroughly enjoyed all of the amenities and open-family room where we could all enjoy dinners, games, etc. We will definitely be back. Mahalo!

Lovely Santa Cruz Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great experience at this house. It perfectly suited our needs and the layout and the design was very well done. I was jealous of the kitchen and the open floor plan, something I've always wanted in my own home, so it was fun to pretend it was mine for the week. The home was very well appointed with all the gadgets and condiments you could need. My four year old daughter was in heaven with the bunk beds and the bevy of toys and movies stashed in the room.

The home is just two blocks from the beach especially on Fourth of July weekend we found it convenient and not crowded, kind of a locals secret beach. We had a well rounded trip, relaxed on the beach, hit the boardwalk a couple times, cruised down to the Monterey aquarium and went to the steam trains. Great location to do all of those things.

Lastly, we really enjoyed working with the owners. We had my parents join us for part of the stay and my mother has some mobility issues. Lori worked with us to ensure it was the right place for them and made sure we would be comfortable. We would definitely come back here next time we vacation in Santa Cruz!

The house is centrally located to all the attractions in Santa Cruz.

Three miles away is the main attraction in Santa Cruz, the California Beach Boardwalk. The boardwalk has rides, events and attractions right on the beach. One mile away is Twin Lakes Beach. There you will find the Yacht Harbor, which offers beach volleyball, kayaks rentals and wonderful restaurants also on the beach. Two miles in the opposite direction is Capitola. Capitola is a quaint beach town, with many restaurants and boutique shops. Pleasure Point, which is a popular surf area and 41st Ave, which is filled with restaurants and surf shops, is 1 mile away.

Santa Cruz is apart of the Monterey Bay, which has endless possibilities for sight seeing. One of the most popular is the Monterey Bay Aquarium in Monterey and Carmel, which is 45 miles away.

There is one little restaurant, that I love, which is within walking distance. It is called the Aloha Grill and it is about a block away from the house. They serve Hawaiian food and have live music on certain nights. I have a welcome binder at the house that has information on all the great restaurants in the area.
