About Scott Johnson

Arbor House Cottage has been in the family since the 1940s. Though it wasn't called Arbor House then, it was simply a rental that my parents owned. My grandparents lived across the street in the corner house and I remember going to see them and playing there. Being with them was very special to me and my siblings. After they passed, I lived there with my Mother and Father until I married and started my own family.

It is good to be able to go over from time to time, enjoy the beach and good restaurants and recall the wonderful memories!.....(note the picture on the wall in the dining room, it's not me but reminds me of me as a child on the beach).....

Scott and I have put many long and loving hours into making Arbor House the warm and welcoming Cottage that it is today.

So, 'welcome'....This is your home for the short time you are here. Enjoy, Relax and let your cares slip away.

Scott Johnson purchased this cottage in 1946

Guestbook comments from the manager

We just returned home from a five day stay in the "Arbor House" in Santa Cruz. We spent those five days with our son's family (they have a 2 and 3 year old). This cottage has everything that you could possibly need for a beach get away. The property is totally fenced in, making it great for kids. The Arbor House is decorated perfectly for a beach cottage. The beach is so close, and the harbor is so beautiful just out the kitchen window. We will definately rent this cottage again, we loved our stay there.

Absolutely Adorable!

  • 5 of 5

The Arbor House is not only perfectly appointed with beach decor, but is well cared for and practical. You can't beat the proximity and for a small family, it's very comfortable. When I had a question, response time by the owner was almost immediate. My 12-year old son loved it so much, he said he wanted to buy it!

Great Beach Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED our time at Arbor House! So fun, cute and located perfectly with the beach, harbor and boardwalk. Loved the happy hour at The Crow's Nest and Johnny's. Went on a sailing cruise out of the harbor and played a TON at the beach. The cottage was an easy, short walk to come back to. The deck was super for sunsets and relaxing. We used the outdoor shower as well for rinsing off after a day at the beach. Thank you so much! We will FOR SURE be back! :)

great beach house

  • 5 of 5

This cozy little house was excellent for our family of 3. Large deck, super comfy couch and so close to the beach. The outdoor shower was a must and we used it daily. The deck was large enough to accommodate our 8 friends for a bbq overlooking the Bay. We love it and plan on returning.

Perfect Lil Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Darling lil cottage. Perfect to walk a short distance to the beach. We loved sitting on the deck for breakfast, lunch and especially dinner to watch the boats coming and going. Oh, sunsets too Loved the sitting areas in the backyard to read a book. The cottage decor was so point on for the feel of the beach. Very clean!

Awesome Arbor House

  • 5 of 5

Our 15 day stay at the Arbor House was AWESOME. We throughly enjoyed on time in this quaint, clean and well equipped house again this year. The location was perfect and close to the beach and fabulous eating establishments. This is the second time we stayed at the Arbor House and hope to return in the future.
