About Lily

My husband and I both grew up along the coast of Southern California and we both love everything that a quaint beach town has to offer. As soon as we found the SEABRIGHT beach area, we fell in love.. It is so bright and sunny, and we just loved the fresh air, the sound of the crashing ocean waves, the casual attitude, the friendly environment, and the vacation like feel. With the beach just a few steps away, the Santa Cruz Boardwalk, many restaurants, and the harbor, all within such a short walking distance, it seemed like a perfect place for our family to build many, delightful and fantastic memories. So far it has been a perfect vacation place for us and such a great location and we hope you and your family enjoy this house and it's location as much as we have!

Lily purchased this house in 2009

Why Lily chose Santa Cruz

We chose to buy a house in the Seabright area because it is one of the nicest, sunniest areas in Santa Cruz. This little town is very well cared for and has such cute Victorian beach cottage homes. The beach has bathrooms and showers and a little ice cream stand and there are also lifeguard stations all along the beach making it a very safe and family friendly beach. Seabright beach also allows bonfires in the evening and this makes the beach a unique place. Also what made this location ideal for us is that the Santa Cruz beach boardwalk is only a short walking distance from the house as well as numerous restaurants and the harbor. There are lots of beautiful trails and walks from the house along the ocean front and the neighborhood is very friendly.

What makes this house unique

The location of this house is ideal! It is nicely situated between both the boardwalk and the harbor. The beach entrance is right at the bottom of our street, the boardwalk and the harbor are both only about a 5 minute walk away,. So, you have the beach, the harbor, AND an amusement area so close! It is such a special place and nested within a nice, clean and quiet neighborhood. The beach at the bottom of the street is a special beach. It is never a crowded or busy area because of where we are situated. Another thing that makes this particular area special is that Seabright beach allows bonfires at night. It is a special and neat experience to walk right down, to the beach, have a nice bonfire, roast hot dogs, or smores and chat with family and/or friends and then walk right home.

Another fun thing to do is to walk along the ocean front as you make your way to the harbor. Aldo's is a great restaraunt on the harbor to eat and/or have drinks and enjoy the beautiful scenery while watching the boats sailing in and out of the harbor. There are seals and pelicans and you can even take a walk all the way out to the lighthouse or rent boats or kayaks if you are feeling adventurous.

A museum is also at the bottom of the street with a large whale out front that is as fun spot for kids to climb and play.

One of our favorite things to do when we are there is to wake up, sit on the deck and to listen for the ocean. Then, go for nice little walk to a local coffee shop with our children. We grab coffee and breakfast and then head down to the beach. With our eldest son on his bike, and youngest in the wagon, we head over to the harbor and let the kids run down to the light house. As we make our way back we head to the beach, the kids romp and play in the sand and waves and we head back to the house for lunch. We end our day roasting hot dogs and marshmallows with a bonfire on the beach or a barbeque on the deck upstairs!

Perfect family home for vacation!

  • 5 of 5
We were in Santa Cruz for a family wedding at Pasatiempo. We traveled with our two adult sons and my parents. The home was easy to find and so close to everything! We had a very relaxing week and were able to walk to so many wonderful sights in the area. This was our first time to rent a home and was so worth it. The owners were very responsive and very accomodating!

Amazing beach house location

  • 5 of 5
This beach house was simply amazing! We used our car to the grocery store, and didn't need to drive anywhere else. Walking distance to boardwalk, beach, coffee shop and numerous restaurants. The house was absolutely immaculate and the new hot tub was a big hit. We had 10 people at the location at one time without any space or sleeping issues. I would highly recommend this to friends and my family and I fully expect to come back here very soon.

AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING

  • 5 of 5
From the beginning of my search for rentals in Santa Cruz, I was overwhelmed. I emailed and called a couple of different houses to keep my options open. To my surprise many people didn't call back, Lily however, emailed right away and even checked in a couple of times while we were getting out final head count. It felt like she was with me along the entire process. There to answer any and all questions!

Then there was the house, it was beautiful! Clean, wonderfully decorated and the ability to use the bikes, the hot tub, and everything else was wonderful! (Including the beautiful paintings done by the owner!) We will be back!!! And tell everyone about it! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!

Great for kids!

  • 4 of 5
We enjoyed our stay very much. It was great for kids -- convenient to the Boardwalk and beach. The house was very clean and had everything you would ever need for a beach stay. The only downside was the internet access. The owner offered to try and fix it during our stay but it would have been more of a hassle for both parties. Still, we would definitely recommend this home. We hope to be back in the future.

Owner's Response: Hi. We are so sorry for any inconvenience the internet access might have caused. Comcast was upgrading the cable in the area and apparently this was causing the issues :( Again, sorry for any inconveniences... We are very glad to hear that you'll be back!

The house is situated in Seabright , a quiet, bright and sunny neighborhood within a short walking distance to the beach, the Santa Cruz boardwalk, and the harbor. A very special memory is the ability to have bonfires in a fire ring at the beach and then come back and sleep in the comfort of a bed! An Ideal location with so much to do within such a short 5 min or less walk. So much to do at the Boardwalk, rides, foods, games, restaraunts, concerts, etc.. Scenic walks and trails along the beach, walk out to the lighthouse, and to many local restaurants within the village. Once you arrive, you will virtually never need to drive anywhere. You can walk to the beach, the boardwalk, the museum, the harbor where you can rent kayaks, or take catamaran cruises, walk to one of the many restaraunts including a coffee shop, a brewery, a burger place, a market, and the famous Aldo's restaraunt, Johnny's or the Crow's nest!

Additional information about rental rates

Cleaning Fee $150
Refundable damage deposit $500
Tax Rate 11.0%
Notes If stay is more than 90 days away, initial payment can consist of only deposit. But, then at 90 days before rental, I would require half the rental fee and the cleaning fee, and then 15 days before check in would be half the rental fee and the Santa Cruz 11% Tax.
