ECO-FRIENDLY LUXURY - HARBOR BEACH HOUSE IN SANTA CRUZ

Santa Cruz House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths (Sleeps 6)

Santa Cruz was voted the #1 outdoor town by Outdoor Magazine: 'Santa Cruz is the epitome of the California beach lifestyle. Predawn long boarding, midday burritos, mountain biking, afternoon kite boarding and fine local wines...' not to mention great hiking, surfing and of course relaxing....enjoy our mild weather!

Rejuvenate in a beautifully styled and appointed California Craftsman home newly built on a quiet upscale street and just two blocks from Twin lakes beach and Santa Cruz Yacht harbor. Walk to and enjoy great restaurants like the renowned Crows Nest restaurant. Or, spend a fun day at the beach using beach gear provided for our guests: umbrella, chairs and boogey boards.

The Harbor Beach House is an eco-friendly 'green' home featuring super efficient and cozy whole-house gas fireplace heat, radiant heat floors in the bathrooms, whole house instant hot-water heater, new full sized, high-efficiency washer/dryer and filtered drinking water. Organic spa soaps and lotion.

About the house: Harbor Beach House is a two story custom home with wonderful attention to detail and new furnishings. This two year old home is now open for guests to relax in the wonderful beach town of Santa Cruz. You will enjoy a fully equipped gourmet kitchen with custom wood cabinets, gas stove and oven, granite counters and top of the line stainless steel appliances. The lower floor has an open floor plan with the kitchen adjoining the living room and dining area, 1/2 bath with granite vanity.

After a great day at the beach, have quick rinse in the warm outdoor shower and relax by the cozy gas fireplace watching the 42' plasma TV or put on some tunes from your iPod from the iHome docking station and play some fun board games like Beach Monopoly. The living room looks out to the private patio with BBQ and outdoor seating. No garage access.

Upstairs....: The upper level has three bedrooms and two full baths. Relax in the master bedroom on a king bed with premium mattress and bedding. This room has a flat screen TV, DVD, walk in closet, private balcony overlooking backyard, Pottery Barn furniture and bedding.

The third bunk bedroom has bunk beds with custom 'vintage surfer' bedding, access to front balcony and shares the second bath. Beds comfortably sleep 6, no extra bedding or pull out sofa available. Additional guests may not spend the night in sleeping bags or on the couch.

Activities within a 2-5 minute walk: Enjoy the beach with lifeguards during the summer and fire pits at night (bring hot dogs and marshmallows for roasting!). Lake fishing within 1 block, short walk to harbor with chartered sailing, paddleboard,kayak, fishing, whale watching and free water taxi in the summer.

Twin Lakes Park has tennis courts, basketball and children's park combined. Restaurants at the beach, harbor and neighborhood, all within short walking distance.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Harbor House. The location could not get any better without sitting on the waters edge itself. The 2 block walk down to the shoreline and harbor is adorable and welcomed. One can choose to walk for coffee, a meal, drinks, beach time, live musical entertainment, or take a short drive. All ages were entertained. From the downhill bike riding teens to the relaxation needy adults. It is all within reach and very attainable. The house itself is amazingly set up and maintained.

Beautiful Home Close to the Beach

My husband and I and our 16 year old son stayed at this wonderful home for five nights. It is beautifully decorated and well-maintained. The kitchen is stocked with everything you need for your stay. The beds are super comfy and we loved the heated floors in the bathrooms! It is a short walk to the harbor for stand up paddle board lessons or dinner on the deck at the Crow's Nest where you can watch the sailboats leave and return from the sailboat races. It's an easy walk to the beach and there are even sand chairs and sand toys at the house you can borrow. We loved the convenient location and the quiet neighborhood. We hope to return for another visit soon!

Beautiful, cozy home!

This is a very cozy home. Obviously very well kept new construction with high quality features. Much better than staying in a hotel. Short walk to beach, and many restaurants... The Crows Nest became a favorite for dinner, The Harbor Cafe was great for breakfast!!

It was a 15 minute drive to The Mystery Spot, and to a forest full of huge redwoods. Less than an hour drive to the Monterey Aquarium, Canary Row, and beautiful Pacific Grove. (About 10 degrees cooler there than Santa Cruz where the June weather was perfect in the high 70's, low 80's!!).

The neighborhood was quiet and safe feeling. We will stay here again whenever in Santa Cruz! Thanks!
