About The Owner

Sisters Kim and Pam bought this adorable bungalow as a family project. We've lovingly updated it and look forward to sharing it with guests as well as our families.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2011

Why The Owner chose Santa Cruz

We love the Santa Cruz vibe and hope to retire here. Our favorite childhood memories are of the beach and boardwalk at Santa Cruz.

What makes this cottage unique

A morning walk with the dogs to the Kind Grind for a latte at the beach. Watching the beach wake up and start populating. Or coffee in the garden, reading the paper and watching the birds.

Perfectly intimate setting

What an amazing little gem in Santa Cruz!
We're born and raised beach people who wanted a wedding beachside and the cottage was an awesome escape full of serenity and calm, and beach side activities. It's close to so much at the wharf in Santa Cruz. The cottage was cozy and all the amenities were wonderful to have a few close friends over after the ceremony! The yard is sweet, and our pup enjoyed the sun on the deck every day. Kim was an amazing person to work with...she was so pleasant and accommodating. The cottage is a "go to" place for sure now, anytime of year. A weekend is not long enough. Highly recommend this lovely beach cottage to all!!!!
Thanks so much for letting us share a very special weekend in the cottage!

Lots of charm, great location

  • 5 of 5
I hesitate to write this only because I want it to be available for my next visit to Santa Cruz! It was just right for our family of three. Kim, the owner, was so easy to work with. The location was great for us - close to the beach, but quietly tucked away at the same time. Easy parking, easy access. My only regret is that we didn't have more time to spend there.

Beautiful Cozy Vacation rental

  • 5 of 5
My 3 best friends from high school and I met up in Santa Cruz at this adorable cottage! It was well kept, clean and had many amenities. There are many nice places to walk or jog, close to the beach and also along the boardwalk and downtown Santa Cruz. Very relaxing and a great place to kick back and enjoy your evenings under the stars. The owners were available to answer any questions or requests. I have already told several people about it. We hope to go back soon!! This is definitely a keeper!!

Relaxing-quaint-perfect!

  • 5 of 5
Arrived at the cottage with my husband and 17 year old son after a 6 day tour of San Fran, Monterey, Carmel, Pacific Coast Highway and San Simeon. We were ready for some down time and relaxation and this was the perfect place for it. Very comfortable house - Kim and Pam have thought of everything for a relaxing stay - comfortable beds, plenty of towels, well equipped kitchen, plenty of room to relax in the yard - and, of course, the big bowel of 'smores fixings waiting for you. It is a small house but the three of us had plenty of room and with there would be room for more people, if needed. We ate out the first night but cooked in the other two nights. Coming from South Jersey, it was such a pleasure to eat outside with no bugs and to be able to leave the front door open for the breeze. Short walk to the beach and to the harbor to watch the beautiful sailboats. There is a lot to see and do in Santa Cruz but the best part was just relaxing in the beautiful landscaped yard!! I was very sad to leave this house and hope to return some day. It was the perfect end to our California vacation. Thank you Kim and Pam, for sharing your home.

Lovely Mid-Week Stay

  • 5 of 5
My mom and I came up for a couple nights mid-week, and loved this place. It is very clean, beautifully decorated, so charming. A block from the beach, very close to downtown. It's in a great location. There is a little grassy yard with an outdoor patio, fireplace and hammock. This is a great place to relax and hang by the beach. Will be my first stop next time I need a rental house in Santa Cruz!

Perfect House / Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5
This was our second visit to this house and we returned with great pleasure. The owners (two sisters) have a wonderful sense of style. Every detail, from the towels to the flatware to the Circulon, has been chosen with pride and an obvious love of quality, comfort, and practicality. This house, though small, is more comfortable than rentals twice its size. Beds are arranged for maximum flexibility, easily accommodating two families. The outdoor living space is large, with porch furniture, an outdoor fireplace, and a large patio dining table. Best of all, the porch and front yard seem to magically hold the sunlight as the day progresses, so you'll want to enjoy your morning cup of coffee on the porch, and wind down with dinner at the big outdoor table. The owners keep thinking of nice new touches: more outdoor plants, a new hammock mooring, and camp chairs to carry with you down to the beach. The neighborhood is quiet and safe, but far from boring. The railroad tracks behind the house (no longer in use) serve as a hiker's thoroughfare to the amusement park or downtown (very "Stand by Me"). The neighborhood is a nice mix of year-round residents and vacation rentals, and each house is different: some are tiny old-fashioned bungalows, and some are big, modern castles. There are good cafes and restaurants within easy walking distance (Betty Burgers, Harbor Cafe), and a mom & pop grocery store if you run out of milk or forgot the butter for your pancakes.
