ROMANTIC COTTAGE AT SEABRIGHT BEACH - STEPS TO THE SAND

Santa Cruz Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Beach Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath (Sleeps 4)

Completely remodeled - upscale one bedroom sunlit retreat just steps (literally!) off of Santa Cruz's #1 beach.

Our cottage and furnishings are bright, fresh, new and clean!

It is fully furnished, down to the last wine goblet. You will find everything that you need for a relaxing getaway - gourmet kitchen, quality linens, bath and beach towels, gas fireplace, DSL Wireless Internet, satellite/plasma TV, VCR or DVD (including library), stereo/CD player, and a safe for valuables while you are away.

Guests will also enjoy a separate studio with plenty of space to store any personal items, along with a washer/dryer, bikes, beach chairs, beach umbrella, and an exquisitely landscaped exterior patio with shower, patio seating and Weber Grill. The cottage is perfect for 2, but will sleep 4 with the comfortable hide abed in the living room.

Additional Information: Seabright Beach (also known as Castle Beach) is part of Twin Lakes State Beach. It was voted #1 by the locals, and is a top rated, five star beach in National publications. It is a wide strand of beautiful, soft sand that is bordered on the west by the mouth of the San Lorenzo River and Santa Cruz Boardwalk, and to the east by the Santa Cruz Yacht Harbor. It is excellent for family outings, beachcombing, jogging, swimming, body surfing, skim boarding, volleyball, evening bonfires and viewing incredible sunsets.

From the cottage, it is just a short scenic stroll to the Santa Cruz Yacht Harbor, or to the Historic Santa Cruz Boardwalk via the train trestle, yet it is separated from all of the hubbub! And the local neighborhood of Seabright itself is known for its restaurants, cafes, coffee houses and Natural History Museum with a climbing whale - all nestled amongst the beach bungalows with a Victorian backdrop. (Both the neighborhood, and Seabright Beach are consistently voted among the best by the Santa Cruz locals.) And just a quick bike ride or a little longer walk finds you in the infamous downtown area - where you will find an eclectic mix of restaurants, shops, theatres and 'local entertainment'.

Our Romantic Seabright Cottage is located just steps to the beach in a quiet neighborhood, yet it is the perfect gateway for all that Santa Cruz has to offer - including world class surfing, sailing, kayaking, fishing, cycling, golfing, premium wine tasting and breweries, CA State Parks, the Historic Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk..............Let us be part of your vacation memories!

Perfect last minute getaway!

I was so happy to have a chance to stay so close to the beach at the last minute. The owner was quickly responsive to my inquiry and the place was ADORABLE. I can't think of what I would want to do differently if I was designing a little beach bungalow. My daughter has continually asked to go back to the "baby otter house" (a cute stuffed animal she found living there). :) I would definitely consider it again when we need another beach break from Silicon Valley!

Perfect cottage for a weekend getaway!

My husband and I escaped the craziness of the bay area in this restful cottage. We loved everything about it. It is so well decorated and cozy. We felt relaxed instantly. The kitchen is well equipped for any meal you might want to prepare, although we chose to eat out rather than cook in. Everything is beautifully done and modern and the bed is very cozy! The cottage is on a quiet street half a block from the beach and close to anything you might want to do.

We walked to the Boardwalk and rode the rollercoasters, ran on the beach, biked along the water on the two bikes in the garage, rented SUPs on Soquel Ave. and paddled in the harbor, and enjoyed just sitting in the sun on the beach! We loved the location - being so close to the beach is fabulous.

The owners are very nice. They live right next door but we never felt like they were watching us or invading our privacy.

We will definitely be back for another weekend getaway without the kids!

Best Santa Cruz location ever!

We know Santa Cruz well, have stayed in many places there over the past 10 years and the Romantic Cottage at Seabright Beachis the best! Not only could you see the beach (1/2 block away) from the front doorstep, the cottage itself has everything that one could possibly need in a vacation rental: a fully-equipped kitchen (even sharp knives!), beautifully and tastefully furnished living area and bedroom, like a page straight out of Coastal Living magazine. There is a full-size BBQ, outdoor table and chairs on the enclosed, private patio. In the garage are a full-size washer & dryer, and any beach-going equipment one could want: beach chairs, umbrella, boogie boards, even sand toys for kids, plus two bicycles.The neighborhood is quiet at night. Santa Cruz was having picture perfect weather the week we were there, so we were very content, especially since it is difficult to find small vacation rentals in SC. The photos on VRBO website are accurate.
I would suggest this small rental for a couple as the 2nd sleeping area is in the living/kitchen area. For us, celebrating our 45th wedding anniversary, it was perfect, beach lovers that we are. We very much appreciated the very tasteful furnishings and touches that really made this beach cottage "beach". Would go back in a heartbeat!

I stayed here with my 2 teenage sons and had a wonderful experience. Close to everything and the cottage is adorable. The owners have thought of everything! We enjoyed the use of the beach chairs and boogie boards and wish we could have extended our stay. We will definitely come back!
