Santa Cruz Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

This luxury second-floor Santa Cruz beach rental located a few houses from the beach exudes Mediterranean charm and offers panoramic ocean views of Monterey Bay. It was recently selected to appear on the show Sweet Retreats, which airs nationally on the ABC Live Well Network. A spacious living room, dining room and kitchen open onto an expansive rear deck. During your days, a short walk, without crossing any streets, leads to the top of a wood, railed stairway to the beach, and an outdoor shower awaits you upon your return. Spend a romantic evening listening to the waves crashing on the beach or drown them out with the surround sound state-of-the-art home theatre system.

Three bedrooms and two baths offer comfortable sleeping in beds for up to seven guests. The master bedroom, which also opens onto the rear deck, includes a gas fireplace and an HDTV. A large walk-in closet provides ample storage for all your travel apparel. Enjoy the wonders of the natural world with stone floors in both bathrooms, granite countertops throughout, and three radiant skylights.

This newly remodeled Santa Cruz beach house has insulated walls and double-pane windows, which will allow you to sleep peacefully even if the kids are still awake. So that you don’t lose touch with the outside world, high-speed wireless and wired internet are provided, in addition to HD cable. Finally, a high-efficiency washer and gas dryer will ensure that your clothes come home just as clean as they were when you arrived.

Our vacation home is packed with everything you will need to enjoy your escape, including: five beds; hypoallergenic comforter for each bed; two complete baths with granite countertops and stone floors and walls; a 55 inch 1080P LCD TV and 5 speaker in-ceiling surround sound in living room; a 40 inch 1080P LCD TV in master bedroom; Blu-Ray Players for each TV, allowing for viewing both Blu-Ray Discs and DVDs; beautiful gas fireplaces in both living room and master bedroom; a smartphone connection to the speakers in living room; a fully stocked kitchen that includes a refrigerator, a dual fuel range, a dishwasher and a microwave; and a dining room that accommodate six people at a table and three at a bar.

We are located 40 minutes south of the San Jose Airport and 1.5 hours south of the San Francisco Airport and 30 minutes north of Carmel and Monterey. The Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk is about a 10 minute drive; ride the historic Big Dipper and enjoy a great family outing. The Santa Cruz harbor is just over a mile to the west, where you can check out the lighthouse and some nice restaurants. Pleasure Point, where you can experience some of the best surfing in the United States, is only a short mile away. Capitola is less than 3 miles to the east; take a walk down the pier or cruise around the local shops.

We look forward to your escape to our relaxing and beautiful Santa Cruz vacation rental beach house on Monterey Bay.

About The Owner

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

Why The Owner chose Santa Cruz

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.

What makes this villa unique

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.

The Beach Villa that will put (and keep) a smile on your face

  • 5 of 5

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!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

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.

Beautiful Santa Cruz Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

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!!

Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Perfect family getaway

  • 5 of 5

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!

Gorgeous Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

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!
