DRAMATIC OCEAN & LAGOON VIEWS, SPA, GATED, PATIOS AND ROMANCE BEST! AMAZING.

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. 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. Pets OK -with extra pet deposit. Ample Parking. The Living room has 1-Full and 1-Queen innerspring Futons and there is 1-Twin daybed in a corner between the Living Room and Dining Room area. There is a 50' SONY Hi-Def television in the living room with many cable channels and Blu-Ray DVD and there are another 3 TVs with just DVD players in all 3 bedrooms, and Wireless High Speed Internet.

Dining Room table can seat up to 10 with a wonderful view of both the Lagoon and the Ocean. The kitchen has a gas stove and oven, a dishwasher, microwave, lots of counter space and the sink also has a nice view of the Ocean and Beach.

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.

PLEASE NOTE - THIS HOME IS NEVER AVAILABLE ON CRAIGSLIST - THOSE ARE OFTEN JUST SCAMS ON FINER HOMES LIKE THIS ONE.

NEVER Pay for a Vac Rental by Western Union.

Thank you for your interest in our Coastview Beach House. We hope your schedule and our calendar can mesh for your prefect beach vacation destination.

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Beautiful View, Awesome Patio Area

  • 4 of 5
Nice comfortable eclectic home with beautiful artwork throughout the home. It is nice how the ocean and lagoon can be seen from the dining and living room area. There are also very nice plants and foliage around the front patio. We loved sitting outside seeing the waves crash and have a fire later on in the fire pit. Owner was very considerate and helpful. He also was readily available, if I needed to call him. We celebrated my mother's 80th Birthday and had the grandchildren visit the second day. It worked out perfectly and the nice gas grill was wonderful for preparing our meal. The house is at the end of the private street and we did not have to worry about the children flying their kites on the street. My Mother felt it was her best birthday ever. Thank you Gabreal for letting us stay at your wonderful beach house!

Great House!!

  • 5 of 5
I stayed here with my girl friends last week. The house was perfect! It had everything we needed and very close to the boardwalk. The beach is a few minute walk away. You can see the beach from the front porch! I would recommend this house for any girls weekend or a romantic getaway. I have rented many houses on VRBO and this one was one of the best!!

Wonderful Time for ALL

  • 5 of 5
My family rented this charming home to host my parents for their 50th anniversary. The large dining room table and patio had plenty of room for our large family to gather and celebrate. We loved the beach, and spent a lot of time out there. Sunsets were fantastic, and the hot tub is amazing. The owner's son even checked in on us to make sure we felt at home, comfortable and welcome. We are very happy and we plan to return next year to make more good memories! Thank you! Highly recommended!

very disappointed in our experience

  • 1 of 5
We stayed here in during a weekend for a family wedding in June. There were several things that were a disappointment, first being the photos the owner displays do not indicate the very close proximity to the other houses on the street. Which impacted us greatly when the next door neighbor hosted a huge party with a live band in his backyard! The owner of the property knew of the party ahead of time and decided not to disclose this information to us, which impacted when we returned from the wedding on saturday and needed to relax, and the band played on until 10:30. Then someone in the neighborhood called the police, so the band stopped, but then the stereo began. All and all the noise went on until everyone left at around 1 am. We were there with our family, and could not sleep. We contacted the owner show said he did not know about the party until the day before (which he still could have disclosed to us and given us the option to stay at a nearby hotel.) But we asked the host of the party the next morning, and he said our owner was not only notified in advance, but actually invited to the party! We contacted the owner several times during the night, and he said he was at a birthday party, and would come later. Whether he ever came out we do not know. After much discussion, and owner denial of responsibility to us, we requested a 40% refund due to the lack of sleep for four adults, however the owner did not refund any amount and continued to deny any responsibility. Some of our party had to fly out the next morning to get back to their lives and work, etc.

Other than that event which impacted our stay greatly, the other negatives are: the lagoon across the street you see in these pictures is sadly lacking in water at the moment, and the pictures do not show the two very large radio towers that are located right in the middle of the lagoon ~ not a pretty view. The oven was dirty, which we discovered when it started smoking while cooking. The hair dryer did not work (owner brought a new one over immediately to his credit), and there were dishes with food on them put away in the cupboard.

The house is dated, and needs upgrading. The second bathroom is the size of a small closet, and the house is very dark in feel, with a kind of quirky group of mostly reproduction art works all over the walls. Best part was, it has a nice area for sitting outside on the front patio. The backyard is neglected.

Owner's Response: We are rather pleased to write this response. We could have paid her several hundred dollars, as many of us good homeowners have been doing in the past, but it was time to put our foot down. It would just be wrong.
Not much of this will we dignify with a response, except perhaps a couple of more major points:
Yes, there was a beach party on that Saturday night, June 21 - first day of Summer. Shameful. Ended early, around 10:20 or 10:30PM. It's the beach in Santa Cruz!
And how is that 1.) a problem on a Saturday Night? and 2.) OUR responsibility?? It certainly was not our party.
She claimed the Police were called regarding this party - on a Saturday night (!)- ridiculous - never happened - The local police have confirmed. They were never called, and of course (therefore) never came. Provable. Police keep records of such things. And why would they unless it was well after 10:00PM, which numerous witnesses attest to not being the case, in addition to the police.
She complained that the hair dryer was broken - We made a special trip, and replaced it within the hour. After they left - we saw it was simply set to "warm blow", not "Hot dry" - so now we have 2 fully functional hair dryers. - yes, not very major.
She complained our oven was broken - FACT witnessed by 4 people (Our two (2) cleaning professionals, myself AND my son, who happened to visit that morning)- Oven was CLEANED the morning they arrived.
They spilled or overflowed some sticky goopy stuff onto the bottom of our oven from what they were baking. They caused the smoke and the oven to error. Before we knew that, we went ahead June 20 and ordered immediately that day a $250 replacement part - based upon the false claim.
Enough of this - we are one of the best properties, we take great pride and care, and have all 5 and 4 Star reviews- it is good to have a little balance - and it is clear that everyone cannot be pleased. Out of a hundred people, there is always someone who just cannot be.
We do try very hard, and will continue to do so well into the future.

Excellent House for Family Gatherings

  • 5 of 5
This house was perfect for our family gathering of 9 people. We all had a bed or futon to sleep on. The outdoor grill, hot tub and patio chairs were all used and enjoyed. The large dining room table was perfect for our meals and card games. And the location was delightful for beach walks and sunset views.

Perfect spot for a getaway

  • 5 of 5
What a great spot! The house, the location (steps from the beach) - it was a perfect place for two families to come together and celebrate my son's birthday. The owner was friendly and conscientious. When the BBQ ran out of gas he personally came over with a fresh tank. The beds were comfortable. The hot tub was great.
We had a fabulous time and will definitely be back.
