Guestbook comments from the owner
Beautiful home. I've been coming to SC for 30+ years and this is the nicest home by far. Enjoyed the view from the deck of the beach and the beautiful weather. Almost everything is within walking distance. Thank you again!

Great location, very comfortable house.

  • 5 of 5
Great location overlooking the harbor, always something to see. Kayaks and paddle boards easy to rent close by. Plus minutes from the beach. Good restaurants and coffee shops very close too.
The house was very comfortable and had everything we needed. We would happily go back.

Modern and comfortable home in a perfect location.

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for two months during our local remodel and the house felt like home right away. The interior is modern and updated and the view is spectacular. We enjoyed the very walkable neighborhood with convenient markets (Deke's, Crow's Nest Market(soft serve cones!)) and restaurants (Crow's Nest, Cafe El Palomar(great breakfast!), Johnny's Harbor Side, Sushi place(on 7th)) all steps away. The neighborhood is friendly and quiet. And, if you are lucky you might meet Bear, the neighbor's very friendly cat who hangs around outside around the harbor.
In addition to the amazing sunsets that will greet you every night from the HUGE upstairs picture window, you will get to see the harbor come alive every morning with boaters, fishing, stand up paddlers, and sail boat classes. You can also reserve a charter ride on the Chardonnay sailboat from across the Harbor. You'll even find equipment for beach fun, including boogie boards in the garage.
As if you haven't noticed by now we are big fans of this house and will always remember our stay here fondly. Stay here, you will make some great vacation memories! Also the owners are very responsive and great to rent from.

Perfect house and location

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here last summer and are returning again. I can't wait to go back. The house was perfect for us -- grandparents, parents and one child. The view is fantastic, the walks around the neighborhoods are great, and the house itself is totally modern, light, clean and comfortable. We enjoyed the Crows Nest and 3 other restaurants within walking distance. We had some great ocean swimming, a couple of stand-up paddle board outings, and time on the beach to read and rest. Hardly needed the car. It was great.

Great girls' weekend

Great girls' weekend
  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the Harborside Retreat 2 years in a row for our annual girls' weekend trip. It is a very comfortable home with a great view in a great location. There are beds for 8 and plenty of room in the living room and the deck for all of us to hang out and relax. It's an easy walk to a couple great restaurants, and if you want some exercise, walking to the boardwalk is a fun trip (you can get there on the beach). Highly recommend this place for a group vacation.

Beautiful House and View

  • 5 of 5
We chose this house a couple of years ago because we could bring our dog. But this house is much better than just a place that would accept a pet.
The site is perfect for a vacation get-a-way. It is close to the mouth of the Santa Cruz harbor with a great view! It is close to many restaurants such as the Crows Nest, Johnny's Harbor Side, Aldo's and El Palomar. If you like to walk, it is close to downtown Santa Cruz, the Boardwalk and Capitola. A walk around the harbor leads to Frederick St. park that has a wonderful area to exercise dogs off their leashes.
The house is very modern with new furniture and appliances. It has very nice bathrooms and sleeping accommodations. The floors are hardwood and stone, no carpets. It has a great basement for children to play or sleep in. It has a nice backyard and bar-b-que.
The house is well maintained, not the typical beach cabin.
We have already signed up for our 2014 vacation.

Terrific House and Location

  • 5 of 5
My family and I can't get enough of this house, we rented this house for Thanksgiving 2012 and 2013 and loved it so much came back for Christmas 2013. We couldn't be more pleased with this house, it is even better than appears in pictures, spic and span clean with plenty of towels, supplies, closet space, hangers. At home I typically sleep 6-7 hours a night, here in this house I slept 9-10 hours every night, beds are so comfortable. The owners really go a step above, everything you need is there at the house. We prepared a Holiday dinner and the kitchen was very well stocked and super functional. The location is perfect, you can walk to one of the best beaches in Santa Cruz in about 2 minutes, walk across the street to many restaurants, there is always something interesting going on at the harbor and the views are beautiful, the sunset is on our screen saver on our phones, it was quite spectacular at Christmas. Most of the boats at the Harbor had Christmas lights, at night it was really neat. The garage is loaded with bikes, boogie boards, beach towels, chairs, etc. The backyard is a private little courtyard, we barbequed lunch and all ate out their several times, there is also an outside shower for when you come back from the beach. We love just relaxing and people/boat/canoe/kayak watching from either of the front patios, one is actually a balcony. With four bedrooms, three bathrooms and an extra family room, you can't beat this house for comfort. We did lots of shopping, eating out, went to the movies, long walks, etc. This house is so centrally located, you are just minutes away from the Boardwalk and Wharf, as well as downtown or go the other direction to Capitola and Aptos. Favorite restaurants are Johnny's Harborside at the Harbor for fish and chips, Cafe Cruz on 41st Avenue for really great dinners and Paradise Beach Grill in Capitola for a dine outside relaxing lunch. The owners/property manager were very nice and helpful regarding our questions, we had no trouble/issues, never needed to contact them other than to make original arrangements. I would highly recommend this house, you won't be disappointed.
