Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

This was an excellent place celebrate my 49th b-day with friends! There were eight of us an we positively have more room than we could even need. This place could EASILY accommodate sixteen! The kitchen was a delight to cook in. It was clean and well appointed and there is extra refrigerator space! Great for a party!!! We used the hot tub every night and had a fire in the fire pit in the lovely back yard! Also, it is so very convenient to the beach. We had a ton of fun walking, biking and tide pooling and there was even a surf competition one of the days we were there! There is also a great little convenience store a few minutes walk away with a nice selection of specialty groceries and been and wine (and ICE!).

One caveat! Put the early risers in the master bedroom. There is a skylight and there was plenty of light plenty early! This is the perfect spot for a family reunion, club or group retreat, even a very intimate wedding (night time noise curfew of 10pm - this was no problem as the indoors is so spacious, we had plenty of room to play games and visit in the evenings!).

Thanks so much to the Bowmans and Irene for being so easy to work with. AWESOME stay!

Beach Birthday Celebration

  • 5 of 5

I was looking for a nice vacation home near the beach in Santa Cruz for my birthday weekend with some friends and family, and fortunately ended-up at this fabulous vacation rental. We loved the location right next to the beach, nestled between Capitola and the boardwalk. The house truly exceeded our expectations, was super clean, well stocked with games and beach toys and perfect for our group! We would definitely recommend this property to any group and hope to come back for another visit.

Retirement Celebration

  • 5 of 5

I recently retired and wanted to have a weekend with family and a few close friends. I actually live in Santa Cruz, a block and a half from this wonderful house. I walked by it at least twice a day, walking my dog. I thought it would be perfect for the gathering, and it exceeded my expectations. It is beautiful inside, the kitchen is very user friendly, and it is landscaped very tastefully. Everyone had a great, relaxing time, with many walks to the nearby beach and the overlook of coast on East Cliff Dr. I also found the owner and the manager very accommodating, making the booking and arrangements very easy for me during the planning of this event. I highly recommend this rental, without reservation.

Staff Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a small staff retreat gathering at this wonderful vacation home. The entire home and yard are so beautiful that everybody felt relaxed and happy to engage in our work conversations. The kitchen is especially beautiful with lots of space to cook as a group and visit together. It is well-stocked with all the appliances, including an amazing Wolf stove and oven, that anybody could want. Finally the owner and property manager are wonderful - they made everything easy!
