You will be “Walkin’ on Sunshine” anywhere you go in this delightful Santa Cruz home. The bright and colorful, newly redecorated 3 Bedroom, 2 Bath home sleeps 7 (plus another child on the small sofa). The house is centrally located on 14th Ave. in Santa Cruz, just a short walk down the street to the 14th Avenue Beach entrance to Twin Lakes State Beach.
These are the nicest, warmest beaches in Monterey Bay, with perfect sand, great boogie boarding, and fire pits for nighttime gatherings. Near the Santa Cruz Yacht Harbor and the famous Crow’s Nest and Aldo’s restaurants, you can rent kayaks or stand-up paddle boards or relax and watch the sailboat races on Wednesday afternoons.
The smoke-free, family friendly, house is fully furnished in seaside décor with all the amenities to make your stay comfortable and relaxing. Kick your feet up and enjoy your morning coffee and catch some rays up on the sunny second story deck. Unwind in the evening sitting on the large sofa in front of the big-screen TV and the cozy gas fireplace. Plug in your iPod to enjoy your favorite tunes or connect to the web with high-speed Wi-Fi.
Sleep in comfort in the serene downstairs bedroom, decorated in peaceful décor, with a luxurious queen bed and flat screen TV. The upstairs bedroom has a full size bed, a private bathroom and access to the wraparound deck. The kids will love the third bedroom that includes bunk beds (with a trundle and small sofa that folds out into a mattress pad), another big flat screen TV, and a Wii video game system.
The kitchen is fully equipped with granite countertops, gas stove, French door refrigerator and dishwasher. Plates, glasses, cooking and eating utensils are provided. There is a separate laundry room with front loading washer and dryer.
Guests will also enjoy the large, private backyard with room for the kids to run or play on the play structure with swings. You will love relaxing on the hammock under the palm trees and the large patio with the gas grill. No need to pack sand buckets, shovels, boogie boards or beach umbrella as we provide all of that for you, including a few small wetsuits. There is even a wagon to help you bring all of your stuff to the beach.
Just a 5 minute drive to the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk and 10 minutes to the adorable beach town of Capitola. There are also plenty of local surf spots.
This is a great home for families in a residential neighborhood. It is not a party house.
Our location is just 45 minutes from Carmel and Monterey, 45 minutes from San Jose International Airport and just over an hour from San Francisco Airport.
This house is completely non-smoking.

We are a family of four who live just over the hill in San Jose. We love our local community and love spending time together as a family. Owning a home here has always been our dream and we feel so lucky that it is now a reality.
Donna purchased this house in 2011
Why Donna chose Santa Cruz
We love Santa Cruz and since it is so close, we have been vacationing here for years. The weather here is just amazing. This place has something for all of us. Mom loves to relax on the beach reading a book. Dad and the boys spend hours upon hours in the water boogie boarding or body surfing. We enjoy fishing and kayaking out of the harbor.
And we love checking out all of the great restaurants in the area. The boys are on a quest to find the perfect bacon for breakfast and the best calamari in the land!
We also love that we always seem to have friends in the area who can stop by.
Having the year-round attraction of the Boardwalk or the Monterey Bay Aquarium nearby provides more fun.
What makes this house unique
As soon as we step inside this home, all of our stress is released. We have strived to make it feel comfortable, peaceful and a little whimsical. It only takes about 7 minutes to walk down to the sand.
