About The Owner

My wife Jen and I are both working professionals, and parents of a beautiful little girl Sophie who is the light of our lives. Shortly after her birth, we closed on this property and feel truly blessed to be able to raise a family in such a wonderful environment. When a friend of ours saw the house she said 'oh, you have a frog', and we looked at her with a puzzled expression and asked her to explain. 'A frog, you know a Finished Room Over the Garage' The name stuck and we've also added the alternative meaning of 'Friends, Relatives and Other Guests'

The Owner purchased this bungalow in 2009

Why The Owner chose Santa Cruz

We have been looking for a home with a guest house for a number of years, and this property truly exceeded all of our expectations. The guest house, 117 Lighthouse Ave is a luxury, 800 square foot apartment above the detached 3 car garage. There is a smaller room complete with bunk beds that is perfect for kids.

What makes this bungalow unique

117 Lighthouse Avenue was built in 2008 and has 800 square feet of living space. The home is built over a detached, oversized three car garage and has views of the Eucalyptus groves in Lighthouse Field. The guest house shares a 1/4 acre lot with the owner's residence and has a wonderful sense of privacy and serenity.

The FROG is the best...

  • 5 of 5

This is the 3rd time we have been to Santa Cruz and this is the best place we have ever stayed. The location is amazing and close to West Cliff so that you can walk to Lighthouse point easily. The place itself is so nice, beautiful and spacious. We loved the gas fireplace with the remote for those cold mornings and evening. Our goal for this trip was to go places we haven't been while relaxing and were able to meet those goals at the FROG. Jen, Todd, Sophie and Phoebe were the bests hosts and it was such a wonderful, relaxing and quiet stay. We are ready to book our next trip!

Beautiful home, amazing family, right next to the water!

  • 5 of 5

I was fortunate enough to be able to stay in the FROG the entire month of February when I was in the process of relocating to Santa Cruz. It is a very beautiful home with everything you need. The large full size kitchen has everything you need, the huge tiled shower is great after a run along the beach or a day of surfing, and the large porch is great for relaxing and listening to the ocean and sometimes sea lions. Wifi and a washer/dryer in the unit are great bonuses as well! In addition to the beautiful home I cant say enough good things about the hosting family. They are very kind and outgoing and was able to give me great guidance for places to visit around town. Speaking of getting around town the beach is just 2 blocks away...2 blocks! The wharf is just a short 10 minute walk and downtown just a short bicycle ride. I would recommend to FROG to anyone visiting Santa Cruz.

SLUGS Great stay at The FROG

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect place to stay for many reasons: #1. Location-Location-Location. This is a prime spot and centrally located. #2. So much better than a hotel room with all the amenities of home. #3. Extremely safe and comfortable feel. #4. Owners respect your space and privacy but were easily accessible if need be.

Our group of four was extremely comfortable and have every reason to make this place a regular spot for us. "HIGHLY RECOMMEND"!!!

Beautifully remodeled, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This was our first VRBO experience and it set the bar. The photos showed the property exactly and the location was very close to the ocean. You could hear the sea lions barking faintly in a very nice way. Everything was super clean and well maintained. We only cooked breakfasts there, but found any important pan or tool to do this. The deck is a nice feature and being on the second floor, felt very safe. It is extremely quiet here. The property is within walking distance to the wharf, Boardwalk, restaurants, beach and walking trails along the water. We would definitely recommend this to others and we would go back if given the chance. Todd, Jen & Sophie were very sweet hosts.

FROG 7/14

  • 5 of 5

This is a very fine place to stay and we enjoyed it. The price was fair and the owners were more than personable. It was a great location for us, the beach for my wife and the city for me, all within walking distance. Highly recommended.
