Santa Cruz House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 6

Welcome to our casual and charming Santa Cruz vacation rental, Casa La Sirena, located in Santa Cruz along the beautiful Monterey Bay. Our Spanish style cottage with lush tropical gardens offers comfortable accommodations for six people – the home includes three bedrooms and two baths.

Our home is located four doors away from a security gated and dog friendly beach on Pleasure Point- world famous surf destination. On prestigious Opal Cliff Drive, a short stroll from Capitola Village (voted one of the “West's 20 Best Small Towns” by Sunset Magazine, March 2009) we are close to boutique shopping, restaurants, entertainment, beaches, surfing, fishing, sailing, golfing, hiking, redwoods, vineyards and more. We are conveniently located 40 minutes from the San Jose International Airport, 1 1/2 hours south of San Francisco, and 30 minutes North of Monterey/Carmel.

Location: Our home is located four doors away from a security gated and dog friendly beach on Pleasure Point- a well-known surf destination with several consistent, high quality surf breaks. On prestigious Opal Cliff Drive, a short stroll from Capitola Village (voted one of the “West's 20 Best Small Towns” by Sunset Magazine, March 2009). Two blocks from surf shops, surf and bike rentals, restaurants, coffee shops and neighborhood shopping.

Santa Cruz: Santa Cruz, located in the northwest corner of the Monterrey Bay Sanctuary, is the original “Surf City” of California, where the ocean and mountains meet to create a unique recreational area. Santa Cruz has a relaxed, friendly and eclectic atmosphere with great beaches, world class surfing, fishing, sailing, kayaking, redwood forests, backpacking and biking trails, great restaurants, organic farms, wineries, golfing and more. Stroll through downtown to shop, dine, enjoy live entertainment and absorb the local vibe. Santa Cruz also features the Beach Boardwalk, the quintessential amusement park on the sand; the City Wharf, where you can fish, shop and enjoy the local seafood and the University of California Santa Cruz, with a student body greater than 10,000.

Nearby: Take a 10 minute drive to Nisene Marks Forest to enjoy serene nature, hike, jog or bike through 30 miles of trails through coastal redwoods. Head up the Santa Cruz Mountains to enjoy the scenery, hike the vast number of trails and visit quaint mountain towns and wineries.

Wonderful getaway by the beach

  • 4 of 5

House was great and in a great location. Traveled with our 2 young girls and the house was equipped with crib and highchair and a great wagon to stroll over to the local beach. Convenient to 41st and an easy walk to grab breakfast or dinner.

House is well appointed, clean and quiet. Only small drawback was no dishwasher. Have already recommended it to 2 friends looking for a beach getaway.

Akemi was extremely responsive and helpful.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We are glad you enjoyed the complimentary baby accessories (portable crib, linens, high chair, high chair, and stroller) and lots of beach accessories. We know these can be additional daily cost at the local hotels and the reason we have many repeat families. We work hard to make our guests feel comfortable. Thank you for recommending us to your friends.

Family Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our weekend. The cottage was as advertised. Everything was there to make for an pleasant weekend in Santa Cruz. The owner filled in all the details via email. We received our deposit back promptly. Next time we are in Santa Cruz this property will be our first choice.

Perfect "home away from home"!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had to move out of our home for 10 days while some construction was being completed. We chose Casa La Sirena because it was not only close to our home and pet friendly, but was in a very desirable neighborhood we have always loved! We were not disappointed with our decision to choose this wonderful property! During our stay, we took advantage of the private beach access just across the street, as well as taking walks into Capitola Village with our dogs. There are great restaurants within close walking distance as well as great Coffee and Ice Cream shops too!

Our hosts were very accommodating and friendly- it was a thoroughly enjoyable time away from home! Thanks again Akemi!

New Years retreat

  • 5 of 5

We were two couples, two small children (ages 2 and 1) and one dog staying three nights at Casa La Sirena. The stay was as close to perfect as we all could hope for. Great house, comfortable, stylish enough to make us feel important, and in a great location for all the activities we wanted to do. The house was furnished with everything we could need and more, including cruiser bikes, great beach stuff, plenty of kitchen equipment (we cooked a lot!), and a HUGE Brio train set that kept our 2 year old busy and happy the whole time we were at the house. I can't stress enough how much he loved that train set. The dog was also very happy with plenty of outdoor room to roam, comfy amenities in the house, and that very dog friendly beach just down the block. The owners also were very attentive to our needs and quick to communicate. We hope to go back next year!

Wonderful end of the summer vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific time at Casa La Sirena to wrap up our summer. Akemi was a wonderful host, extremely helpful before during and after our stay. The house has everything you would expect and then some. The garage was fully of beach toys for us to use during our stay and we had ample beach towels too!

The enclosed back yard was perfect for our dog to play without being leased and it was a lovely space to end our day.

We will be back!

Perfect for our family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 2 adults, 3 children between ages 6-11 had plenty of room, beds were comfortable, house was clean and beautifully decorated. We enjoyed the walking distance to restaurants, beach, excellent coffee, and shops. Owner was easy to reach, friendly, and helpful. Having a garden in the backyard and front was a plus. We cannot think of a better location and home for our family to stay, and would stay again! Kids also enjoyed surf lessons from local Ripcurl shop, and the tide pools at several beaches within walking distance.
