Overview

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 private bath has a soaking tub, granite two-sink vanity, radiant heat floors and custom 'rain' shower.

The second Hawaiian themed queen bedroom has flat screen TV and access to front balcony and shares the second bath just down the hall: deep tub/rain shower and radiant floor heating in second bath. 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. Enjoy Johnny's Harbor Side with fresh fish market or Crow's Nest with live entertainment and dining deck overlooking the harbor. Sit on the beach outside of the Kind Grind coffee bistro featuring the perfect cup of hot java with fresh pastries; free live jazz on Sunday mornings!

The famous 100 year old Santa Cruz Boardwalk is within 10 min driving time and antiquing in downtown Aptos is 15 min drive. Take a tour of our wineries or the Monarch butterfly winter home in Natural Bridges State Park (10 min drive), ask about wild life tours.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Lisa, you & max have a very beautiful house - much better than we expected for a beach town. Everything was top notch down to the finest detail. If we are ever in the area again, would definitely stay at your place if available.



We spent one day visiting the Aquarium in Monterey. Spent one afternoon & night on the beach boardwalk - kids had a blast. Spent three afternoons on the beach and had campfires on the beach two evenings. Breakfast @ Aldo's one morning, patronized Zeke's often and enjoyed dinner @ Crow's Nest on our last day- thanks for all the recommendations!



Thx again.



Best wishes! Vince & Kathy

Spacious lovely vacation home

  • 5 of 5
I couldn't be happier with my family's recent stay at the Harbor Beach House. The home is spacious, well-appointed and conveniently located. The kitchen is lovely and open to the living spaces, allowing our family to cook great meals while enjoying social time. We will return!

Fantastic Beach House!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I have rented several vacation homes in California, including Santa Cruz. This place by far was the best in location, cleanliness, comfort, organization, space, and overall fun. I highly recommend this to others and this now will become an annual spot for us!!

Beautiful home and one block from the beach

  • 5 of 5
The house is beautiful and perfect for a family of 4 or 5. It is spacious with all
amenities. It less than one block from the beach and close to several restaurants. We are a military family and we used the house for a mini vacation to reconnect with our adult children. We enjoyed our time and would definitely stay there again!
