The Owner purchased this cottage in 1991
Our family has lived here in the village for generations.
Sitting in the front yard or on the bluff, at the end of the day with a glass of wine watching the sun go down.
Bonfire available in the front yard.
We had a great Thanksgiving weekend here. Gorgeous spot -- people drive from all over to watch the sunset from the park across the street. Beautiful beach, short drive to Santa Cruz and not too far to the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Comfortable beds, big kitchen, fireplace, and the ocean right outside the windows!
The 4th of July is a great time of year to visit La Selva! The entire community gets involved and arranges a very fun and informal set of events and activities targeted for families with young children.
The events start with a a pet show (stuffed animals are allowed) and a community breakfast at the community lawn, followed by a parade down the main boulevard (which anyone can join) and a sand castle contest on the beach. The climax of the day is a fireworks display on the beach that can be viewed from the bluffs.
My family and I celebrated the 4th at the Carriage House this year and had a delightful time. The house is located is only a short walk from all of the events, so it's easy to come and go depending on what you want to do. The entrance to the private beach is only a block away. It also sits on the bluffs overlooking the beach, so the views out the front window are fantastic, and to watch the fireworks display you just have to walk out the front door.
It has two bedrooms that can each sleep two, and a king-size futon in the living room for an additional two people. It's a charming old house that retains most of its original appearance, and is kept immaculately clean.
The owners are also very nice and easy to work with.
I strongly recommend the Carriage House for anyone with small children who want a relaxing and informal vacation in a small community with a private beach.
This place is excellent for a weekend to just get away from hustle and bustle of City Life or for a longer vacation. The home is very clean and inviting with a great view from Santa Cruz to Pacific Grove, I recommend it for family or just girls get away. I would stay here again. Access to beach is close but not for someone who does not have good walking capabilities. The home is good for active older people and area is great for runners, bicyclist, surfers and hikers. Owners were awesome!
My husband, son and I spent 2 nights at this immaculately clean and fresh cottage. It had everything we needed to be found where you would expect to find them. The beds were comfortably made up with nice linens and there were cuddle blankets everywhere!
The view of Monterey Bay is awe inspiring, and a quick walk (300 yds) got you down to a quiet beach.
We even walked along the abandoned train tracks to Seascape for a tasty coffee and pastry.
At night we were rewarded with a spectacular display of stars, and the sound of the surf.
Maura was very accommodating and quick to answer our inquires.
My sister-in-law and I spent 2 nights at this lovely newly renovated vacation rental.
The views of the Monterey Bay were fabulous!
It had all the amentities anyone would need. Very neat and clean.
The owners are friendly, and very accommodating.
The price is a definite bargain for this beautiful location.
Had an enjoyable and restful time. Across a quiet narrow street from a bluff overlooking Manressa State Beach. Walking distance down to the beach is 300 yards. The sunsets are fantastic, and in the mornings at sunrise I was the only person walking the deserted beach seeking out photo ops. We used to rent at Pajaro Dunes, and although this lacks some of the amenities of Pajaro, the cost is 1/3 to 1/2 dependent on the season. The hosts, Maura and Brad, were very accomodating, but not at all intrusive. We will definitely be back.
