After visiting Santa Cruz for years, we decided to purchase a property here. It is a fun place for families and couples, and a short escape from the Bay Area. We like being near the beach, and enjoy boogie boarding, body surfing, kite flying and other water activities. We also enjoy the other local amenities, including Capitola, the harbor and the Boardwalk. In addition, Monterey and Carmel are only an hour away.
The Owner purchased this villa in 2007
We love our area because it feels like a beach community. Our vacation rental is only a few doors from a terrific beach and located along a bike path. Since street parking during the summer is restricted to local homeowners and guests, the beach is not very crowded. The property needed a great deal of work when we purchased it, shortly after returning from a trip to Italy, and we spent most of 2008 remodeling. We decided that a Mediterranean theme was a good fit for the structure.
We like being close to the water, and that is how we feel when at our property. Not only do we have terrific views of the beach and the surf, but we can also hear the soothing sound of the waves crashing on the beach. It is very relaxing.
Cheerful beach villa best describes this vacation getaway, with a beautiful view of Monterey Bay, beach access to a wonderful expanse of rejuvenating sand and surf. The Villa is impeccably appointed; with a large gourmet kitchen and a large dining and living area that overlooks the Bay.
I have stayed at many seaside resorts and vacation rentals within the Monterey Bay area, and I have no hesitation in ranking Allegra Villa Alla Spiaggia tops on my list.Thanks Ed!
This property was perfect from top to bottom. The décor was brand new and top quality. It was spacious and clean. We cooked thanksgiving dinner here and the kitchen had everything we needed and all appliances were top notch. The grill worked great as well. The bathrooms were so pretty. Water pressure was probably my only complaint - it was fine but not stellar. But the beauty of the tiling and vanities overshadowed that. The towels were big and comfy. The beds were very comfortable and the bedding was very high quality. Plenty of comfy seating in the living room and a large dining table as well. It seems not an expense was spared to make this home just perfect. The view is also wonderful. Not right on the beach but just a few houses off and you can hear the wonderful sound of the waves from most rooms. The beach was gorgeous - lots of room to play and not too crowded when we were there. And the beach access was easier than most - just a few steps down the street (like a quarter of a block if even that) and then a few stairs down from the street - very convenient! We were able to park two cars (one was a large minivan) in the driveway so that was very convenient. The house was about 15 minutes from the Santa Cruz boardwalk which was fun. It was very close to several restaurants and convenience stores but not really walking distance. The entertainment system was great - we hooked up our iphones for music and the TV was large and good quality. The fireplaces were super nice too - gas so very easy to use - one in the living room and one in the master bedroom. This home was just so comfortable and beautiful I never wanted to leave!! One thing to note is that the unit is on the top floor of the house and so you do need to go up a flight of stairs when you walk in. No problem for my group but might be an issue with very small children or older folks.
Our family of 5 had a wonderful stay at this property in Santa Cruz. It is furnished very nicely, and in excellant condition. We stayed for a week, the weather was fantastic, and the views were awesome! We saw seals and sea otters swimming in the surf daily from the deck. Ed was very easy to work with, and answered my emails and questions immediatly. Thanks for a memorable vacation!!
We rented Ed's beautiful beach house for a week in August. We had such a wonderful stay. The house is spacious, gorgeous, and clean. We had everything that we needed and Ed was a pleasure to rent from. It's an easy walk down to the beach. Our boys (4 & 5) had plenty to do at the beach and the nearby attractions. There is so much to do in the area! We hope to make it back again soon!
I rented this house for UCSC graduation weekend. It was perfect. The views were wonderful and the elderly grandparents could enjoy the beach without going down to it. The owner has made a wonderful space, full of deluxe touches that make it seem homey, not like some of the second-hand/hand me down feelings you get from some vacations rentals. Top not appliances and well equipped kitchen rounded out our weekend, and we are a family of cooks. I would definitely rent this place again!
My family and I recently stayed at Ed's gorgeous vacation property. When you enter this home, it is apparent that he spared no expense in its construction! Everything is high end, from the appliances, electronics, to the flooring, trim and woodwork throughout! We've stayed in dozens of vacation homes from San Diego to San Francisco, and this is truly one of nicest that we've had the pleasure of visiting. You will not be disappointed! Ed was very accommodating and wants to make sure that your stay is enjoyable!
