Perfect Family Beach House

  • 5 of 5
My mom rented this beach house for our family vacation and we all absolutely loved the house! It was very comfortable and cozy, had plenty of room indoors and out, and is in a great location. We walked everywhere...Pleasure Point, Capitola Village, Shadowbrook for a delicious meal...and also rode bikes to the Santa Cruz Harbor. We hope to come back again!

This is an absolutely wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5
Our group felt so fortunate to have discovered this beautiful, well-maintained home- I don't see how it can get any better than this. The location, views, garden, gathering areas, private bedrooms, hot tub, access to private beach and beautiful decor all provided a wonderful experience. Joyce, the owner, provided outstanding service. Try to stay more than a few days to take advantage of all this property has to offer!

Wonderful house and host!

  • 5 of 5
We visited Santa Cruz with a couple other families for a soccer tournament. Joyce's house was perfect for our group of adults and boys. The house is nicely located within walking distance of the beach, restaurants and shops. Two beautiful decks surround the house, the atrium lets you enjoy the birds flying by and the lush garden surrounds you as you relax in the tub. Joyce is a wonderful host - very responsive and generous. We had a lovely stay.

Perfect Rental

  • 5 of 5
This place is amazing and now my family thinks I'm amazing for finding it. The only drawback is that it is not child friendly. There are lots of stairs, no gates, and tons of fragile decorations both inside and outside. You can have kids in here, but you pretty much have to hover over them.

Other than that, it's a big beautiful house: the kitchen is well stocked, the TV practically flies to the moon for you, the location is gorgeous, the beds are comfortable and the place oozes charm from top to bottom. We never wanted to leave. In fact, we spent more time just hanging out than I would've liked, but I couldn't get them to budge!

Bring your own towels. There aren't a lot of them and they are mainly decorative.

There is a friendly orange cat who hangs out on the decks and in the yard. It's a nice bonus if you miss your pets when you travel.

Owner's Response: Hi ! Glad it was an awesome place for you! We take all comments and try and learn better ways to present the property for all types of guests. We do have kids constantly - will try to minimize "risks" - have deferred to parents on gates, etc. as all have their preferred methods. Yes, it is a two story house.
Will add more towels - have beach towels plus 3 sets per bathroom.
Friendly cat does belong to a neighbor.....moving soon :(.
Thanks much for your good ideas and inputs! Visit us again....

Absolutely Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5
This home is absolutely fantastic! It is like coming home. The kitchen is fabulous, the living room and adjoining area are light and wonderful. The back deck and yard are great for outdoor dinners and reading. Our son walked to the Hook nearly every day and we enjoyed many walks around the Point and into Capitola. The location is great and the home is a dream!
