I love getting to know the guests who vacation at the cottage.

Kathie purchased this cottage in 2009

I have many happy memories of spending summer vacation on the beach here as far back as the 1970s. The beaches are just as wonderful and unspoiled and uncrowded now as they were then.

One of my favorite things is listening to the sound of the waves at night from inside the house...this isn't always possible, but it seems most likely when low tide is late at night.

I also love to pour a cup of coffee and head to the beach first thing in the morning and take in the morning walk before starting my day. At the end of the day, the sunsets over the water can be spectacular right at the end of the street.

I also love that the house is practically on the Wharf-to-Wharf course...this is an annual run from the Santa Cruz Wharf to the Capitola Wharf, and I've been participating in it most years since the mid-1970s.

Last but not least, the neighbors are very friendly!

CLOSE TO THE BEACH AND CAPITOLA, NICE EXTRAS.

  • 4 of 5
Kathie was great, bathrobes and boogie boards to use (bring fins). Walking distance to beach and Pleasant Point and surfing. Comfy beds and two showers and a nice kitchen. Away from the madness in Santa Cruz yet close enough to drive. Parking passes provided. Seemed like a nice place close to shopping and restaurants, yet far enough from the main crowds.

BEST SURFING TRIP EVER SO FAR

  • 5 of 5
Everything was perfect. The house was wonderful and spacious and had everything we needed. The location was great and the place was a good base for us to go and explore Santa Cruz and the surrounding area.

I found the price really affordable. With all the amenities and how well stocked the house was it was well worth it.

All of my party only had good things to say about their stay. We look forward to returning to this place in the future!

Thanks again!
