Santa Cruz House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

PETS ARE WELCOME BUT RULES ARE STRICTLY ENFORCED AS SHOW IN THE HOUSE RULES. The pet must be reported in the original request and a $50 charge per pet will be applied. There is a leash free beach for the dogs 2 blocks from our home.

The location of this property is between the harbor and Capitola. A few short blocks away is Pleasure Point where the surfing spectacles are endless. Our small street is quiet and friendly and parking during the high seasons is limited to homeowners and their guests. The tasteful furnishings will make entertaining a pleasure.

A short drive down the Monterey Peninsula brings you to world class golf courses and the charming seaside towns of Carmel, Pacific Grove and Monterey. In the other direction a short drive takes you into the beautiful Santa Cruz Mountains with small towns nestled in the redwoods along the way. The world famous Santa Cruz Beach and Boardwalk are 10 minutes away and will give those who enjoy the excitement of roller coasters something to talk about back home.

30 MINUTES TO SHUTTLE FOR A T & T GOLF TOURNAMENT IN JANUARY. BOOK EARLY AND SAVE!

Great location / excellent base for a family holiday.

  • 5 of 5
We chose this property after searching a huge number of holiday rental sites in the area, our main criteria was proximity to beaches, and a child friendly environment. The property is not cluttered with uneccessary ornaments and decorations. It is nicley furnished, comfortable and has a distinctly relaxing vibe. There are two decks allowing outdoor living which ever way the wind may be coming from. A good selection of outdoor furniture and shade from large market umbrellas enhance these o/door spaces. Both the owner and property manager were very helpful and we appreciated the thoughtful touches that Karen organised for us. The small children in our family were catered for with a pack & go crib, and a fully fenced property to run around and let off steam! We would recommend this property without hesitation. Santa Cruz/Capitola are packed full of things to do for adults and children - the greater area has a wealth of activities and sights within a day trip including a fabulous aquarium at Monterey, and whale watching from the beach if a cruise is not your thing, truly awsome to see.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of five stayed here last week. All of us just loved it! Very short walk to an awesome, uncrowded beach. Close to anywhere else you might want to go. We would definitely recommend this place and would happily stay here again!

Great beach house in excellent location

  • 4 of 5
Thank you for sharing your home with us. We had 3 adults & 3 kids and it worked perfectly. Everything ended up being exactly as it was described. This was the best location being between Capitola & downtown Santa Cruz. The decks were great and the interior was just updated. The only reason we didn't give it 5 stars is because of being located right next to the main beach road. However, if you plan to be close to the beach...all the homes are close to this road. It was perfect for us & we hope to come back!

Thanksgiving Week (re)Treat

  • 5 of 5
Our adult family Thanksgiving retreat in your just right beach home was wonderful. The beach was super easy to access and we thoroughly enjoyed all the Santa Cruz area has to offer: spectacular sunsets, dolphin/seal/whale/otter bird watching, Sharks' hockey games, Point Lobos State Park and Half Moon Bay day trips, eating great seafood at Stagnaro's on the wharf, and of course, the beaches! Reading by the fire was an extra added bonus. We'll be booking again I'm sure in the future!

Lovely spacious house

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 2 grandparents, 2 parents and 2 small children stayed for 4 nights at this lovely place. Very close to the beach and a few minutes drive to downtown Santa Cruz. Well equipped with linens and beds comfortable. Karen was very attentive although we didn't need to call her with any problems.

Family fun

  • 5 of 5
We came to Santa Cruz for my brothers wedding at the Chaminade. We were lucky enough to find this fantastic home for myself and other family members. The home was very close to the event which made it easy getting to and from. We only had it for a short 3 nights, but made the best of every minute. This home is very close to the beach which we took advantage of 2 days in a row. The owner (Karen) was fantastic to work with, she made it easy to relax and have fun. Thank you so much for the opportunity to stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your wonderful compliments; it makes my job a joy when I know I am maintaining a vacation rental (we've enjoyed the house ourselves since 1984). I truly appreciate your words and all others who have written; really I am just doing my job. Most importantly, I couldn't do it without my partner & best friend, my mother Josy.
