Santa Cruz House Rental Photos and Description
3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s) 3, and 2 Bath rooms (Sleeps up to 11)
COASTVIEW BEACH HOUSE: Immerse yourself in the Spa Therapy seats, and watch the moon rise over the lagoon. Sooth yourself with the sound of waves crashing on our Santa Maria beach. Early morning walks often have dolphins playing in the waves, flocks of Pelicans skimming above the surf, and Sea Otters swimming by. In addition to the view of the beach, our property is on Corcorran lagoon, which is a protected bird sanctuary with Herons and many exotic species.
Santa Maria beach, which is about 200 level foot steps from our property to the sand, is one of the most beautiful beaches in Santa Cruz featuring surfing, boogie boarding, skim boarding, swimming, fishing and is perfect for long walks. You can watch your family enjoying the beach from the house. One can explore the tide pools to find sea urchins, sea anemones and other sea life.
Our property has been booked every weekend between May and August, mostly due to returning guests and the newly reduced pricing. Our special new pricing for September through the end of the year (just released June 26th) should fill in quickly. As of June 26 2014 we have just released the whole year. PLEASE NOTE: Our calendar is very up to date and accurate, so be sure to check the dates first, and then make an inquiry. Summer months are already nearly fully booked.
Our location is also close to the fun-filled Santa Cruz Boardwalk, the famous surfing spot Pleasure Point, and 41st Ave where there is a variety of shops and wonderful restaurants. Minutes from Capitola Beach to the south and the Santa Cruz Yacht Harbor to the north, were you will find sail boats, fishing boats, Seafood Restaurants, beach volleyball, kayaks rentals, and many other Harbor activities.
The property sleeps up to 11 in 3-bedroom, 2-baths. This is a new home in vacation rental, and it is a wonderful find for you.

The beach house has a clear view from the beach all the way back into the beautiful Corcorran Lagoon.
A walk on the beach south, even better at low tide, and you can end up in Capitola Village. A mile north to the Yacht harbor and Crows Nest. Another mile and you are at the world famous Board Walk, and getting quite close to downtown Santa Cruz.

About Gabreal Franklin
Owner. Also has property in Big Sur. This beach home was one of the first properties right on Corcorran Lagoon. The road is private and gated, so only the cars of the residents are able to come in. This beach is wonderful, large and you can always find a nice place to be as comfortable as possible. Easy access to the sand too, as it is only the 3 steps to the patio, the seven steps to the driveway, and a straight and level shot to the sand. If you tell the kids to sit in the beach out front, you can keep an eye on them from the house and the patio.
Gabreal Franklin purchased this house in 1991
Why Gabreal Franklin chose Santa Cruz
Wonderful and sunniest part of Santa Cruz and Monterey Bay. Best beach in region - campfires and quiet.
It is definitely a great find, and worth a bit of a splurge.
