BEDS AND BATHS
Master Suite, with views of Schwann Lake, this room features a plush pillow top Cal-King bed with beautiful Eqyptian cotton linens and a down comforter, bedside tables with reading lamps and a full size dresser. Adjoining the bedroom is the luxurious bath that is outfitted with honed Carrera marble, double vanities, a large shower and heated floors. You’ll also appreciate the plush towels, hair dryer and bath amenities.
Bedroom #2, with a large picture window, has two twin beds, a small dresser and bedside lamp.
Bedroom #3 is perfect for the kids and features two bunk beds with fluffy, surf themed comforters, a large window, nightstand and lamp.
The two guest bedrooms share the hall bath which includes two sinks, Seagrass limestone counters and floors, separate tub/shower/toilet room, plush towels, hair dryer and bath amenities.
Downstairs adjacent to a full bath is a “Comfort sleeper” queen size sofa bed. This is not your typical sofa bed, but rather a full length, temper-pedic mattress which feels like a high quality bed. This area also includes an armoire, side table and lamp.
White painted wainscot and grey limestone counters add to the style of the downstairs bath featuring a separate tub/shower/ toilet room, hair dryer, plush towels and bath amenities.
The kitchen will please even a discriminating chef who will appreciate the Bertazzoni gas range, French door refrigerator, large capacity dishwasher and microwave all surrounded by beautiful granite countertops. Fully stocked with quality pans, cutlery and dishes, as well as commonly used spices and condiments.
The Dining area accommodates seating for up to 8 people and there are three additional stools at the island. French doors open to the private patio beyond.
The Living room is appointed with casual seating for viewing the HD TV or listening to the stereo sound system while enjoying the warmth of the fire. Enjoy the outside from this area as well through another set of French doors.
Hang your beach towels and leave the flip- flops in the well thought out Mud/Laundry Room equipped with stack washer/dryer and a utility sink.
Enjoy the Sunny Front Patio, surrounded by lush flowering plants that includes a gas barbeque grill, built-in gas fire pit and teak furniture.
The private Back Patio is set up for family fun with a ping-pong table and access to bicycles, boogie boards and beach toys in the storage shed.
A warm water Outside Shower is located on the side of the house.
The main attraction, is of course the beach, and the house is just a couple easy blocks to one of the sunniest, nicest beaches in Santa Cruz. Located just south of the Yacht Harbor, Twin Lakes Beach has a mile of uninterrupted white sand, fire-pits and lifeguards. There are also two restaurants, a coffee house, surf shop and bathrooms. Relax and play in the sand, rent a boat or kayak, boogie board, play beach volleyball and enjoy fabulous sunsets.
Visit “the hook” or Cowell’s beach for great surfing, hang out at the Santa Cruz Boardwalk amusement park, check out the shops and restaurants in Downtown Santa Cruz or nearby Capitola Village, hike the beautiful trails in the redwood forest or bike along the coastline - all of which are just minutes away.
And, don’t miss the incredible sea life at the Monterey Bay Aqurium located just forty minutes South of Santa Cruz.

Our family has roots in Santa Cruz which date back to the early 60's and we love hanging out at Twin Lakes Beach.
This is such an easy place to spend time and relax. When the weather is warm and sunny the beach is awesome, during the colder season it is so cozy by the fire curled up with a good book. Always a great place to go for a run or to enjoy the sunsets!
Awesome kayaking off lighthouse point - paddling with the dolphins, seals and otters. Loved the tennis court around the corner and the sofa bed was the best!
This gorgeous home is just as lovely as the nearby Twin Lakes Beach where we boggie boarded and watched a spectacular sunset with the lighthouse in the foreground. The owners have on hand everything one could want for the perfect beach day: towels, chairs, sand toys, boggie boards. However, the kitchen and living area are so inviting that one could as easily spend the whole day enjoying cooking with family or curling up with a good book by the fireplace. Looking forward to returning!
We spent two nights here, loved everything here. The owner did an outstanding job maintaining this place. It's too comfortable staying there that we almost forgot to spend time outdoor during out stay. Can't wait to go back for the our next getaway trip .
This property felt like home! Beautifully appointed and maintained - it exceeded every expectation! The location was very convenient as well! I will definitely stay here again! I loved it as did my friends that came to stay. (No one wanted to leave!)
House is very well laid out for adults and kids. Great common area downstairs, which was a natural place for the families to hang out. We had two families of four and it was perfect. With the short walk to the beach, the kids had a blast. Nicely done. We'll be back.
This house met every expectation and then some. It's thoughtfully laid out, has generous bathrooms and a chef's kitchen, and is perfectly appointed for the beach. It's also just a short walk to the beach and the Harbor so it's a perfect jumping off point. We loved it and hope to return soon!
