Santa Cruz House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s) 3, and 2 Bath rooms (Sleeps up to 11)

COASTVIEW BEACH HOUSE: This property is where you can 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 RATES are $580 IF we agree to a One Night rental, and can sometimes be $540 for 5 or more nights.

Our property is usually fully booked between May and September, mostly due to returning guests and the newly reduced pricing. 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 2012 and 13 were fully booked up. The only time we have MINIMUM STAYS MAY BE over Holidays: July 4th has a 4 day minimum, then notably Thanksgiving, the Chiristmas Hannaka Holidays and New Years.

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. Check in is 3PM and check out 11AM unless by prior written modification. This is a new home in vacation rental, and it is a wonderful find for you. There are 2 queen sized sofa futon beds in the living room, and one single day bed. Very unusual location with both the Ocean Views & Corcoran Lagoon Views, we are located just opposite the beach, up a private gated driveway. New Hot Tub Spa has such spectacular views of both bodies of water!! Great and private location, easy level walk to beach, spacious outside slate patio with great beach and lagoon views. Comfortable seating, gas BBQ, with lots of space and nice flowers and new landscaping, with a new patio fire pit. The fenced-in Back yard has an Outside Hot & Cold Shower.

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.

There is a shower, basin and toilet for bedroom 3, and a second full bath with shower, tub, basin and toilet for bedrooms 1 and 2.

Full Laundry room with washer and dryer is located between the kitchen and the 3rd Bedroom. An out door shower in the back yard has hot and cold water for returning from the beach.

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.

What makes this house unique

Nature and Beauty. Water on two sides. Private and quiet. Definitely worth a bit of a splurge. Very special place.

Favorite All-Time Vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed at your wonderful beach property, and celebrated my mother's 87th birthday. She was very sceptical - renting a house - having our family come and cook dinner there, all like we used to do at her home.

She was sure it was not going to be suitable. When she arrived with my sister, and stepped onto the patio the sun was making the ocean and the lake twinkle like a million stars. The shades of blues were remarkable, and she sat down on the patio, and held court.

We watched the waves rolling onto the beach, and the many birds singing and feeding in the lake.

She came into the house as dinner was nearing readiness, and was shown the master bedroom where we had put some of her framed photos and personal things. After exclaiming how she loved it and could not get over the beautiful stained glass, she started to look at the many oil paintings throughout the home. Definitely there were tears in her eyes, as my father was an artist, and somehow your home triggered a response in her that was remarkable and rejuvinating.

After being so sure, so adimate that we should just come visit her in her room at the home, she was now the first to suggest can we please return again next year, and bring the family together again!!

Thank you so very much to your family for making such a beautiful and comfortable home, in such a very special and stunning location, available to our family. My mom was so invigorated and comfortable, we are all certain we will be returning every spring for many more of her birthdays - and enjoy a special memorable family time, in such an outstanding place.

Thank you thank you!

Great Stay! Amazing beach location w/ view & walk

  • 4 of 5

Our family had a truly great stay at the Santa Cruz coastview beach house. The location to the beach is amazing, a short walk away to white sands and beautiful water. The house has a lot of character and the host was incredibility accommodating. Offered everything you would want in a beach house and allowed for a comfortable stay. We plan on using the house again in the future.

Firstly, Thanks Gabreal for renting us this property. It was an excellent experience for all of us. Guys are still discussing the bachelor party and house. Excellent view from barbeque area. House has all the amnesties one can ask for. We did some cooking as well and unfortunately broke one good dish provided in house(thanks Gabreal for letting it go). We spent majority of our time in barbeque area, living room (dancing) and in jacuzzi.

Birthday Get Away

  • 4 of 5

This place is awesome awesome awesome! I stayed back in late March and had six friends join me for my birthday weekend. The location could not have been better. Being on the lagoon was fantastic and we did lots of bird watching from the hot tub. People who were not scared off by the drizzle took beach walks and the rest of us stayed inside and played games. Gabriel was very responsive to our group's needs. We had a outstanding stay!!! I would love to visit this beach house again!

the perfect spot

  • 5 of 5

This place is everything it promises and more. It is a great location - close to the beach, secluded and quiet. As described by others, the inside is not fancy, one bathroom is very small, but overall the house is comfortable, welcoming and relaxing. It is very easy to feel at home. The best part is certainly the front yard/deck. What a great use of the space. We arrived and got unpacked just before heavy rain and hail hit. It was awesome to sit on the covered porch and watch the egrets in the lagoon in the downpour. It cleared up quickly and we were able to head to beach for a little boogie boarding before dark. Close proximity to Capitola, the Boardwalk and other sites. We will be back.

Owner's Response: Your comments and appreciation of the place means a lot to us. We are working on improving it all the time, and some of the suggestions we have been getting is making the place more enjoyable for others too. In a few days, there will be a brand new slide show composed of photos being taken today. Im many cases, the new improvements can be seen, and a new site that will have links to current weather, webcams for the area, restaurants, emergency numbers etc. We greatly appreciate the growing family of returning guests to the Coastview Beach House, and hope to be one of the best places for families to enjoy themselves. Thank you again, and see you next time!
