Santa Cruz House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrm,3 baths with fabulous ocean & beach views includes separate guest house

Property Description : Magical Oasis boasts exceptional views and is a great home for the discerning guest. Located on West Cliff Drive, Santa Cruz's number one rated attraction by Trip Advisor, it over looks the Monterey Bay and Santa Cruz Wharf. It is perfect for multi-generational gatherings, romantic get aways and those in pursuit of their passions.

A detached, separate casita with full kitchen provides privacy for in-laws or another couple. Magical Oasis is a beautiful Spanish style house, decorated, and thoughtfully appointed by KToole Designs.

At Magical Oasis, we pride ourselves in helping guest create very special experiences. Guest are greeted with fresh flowers, complimentary wine from MJA vintners, delicious Donnelley's chocolates and artisan soaps and lotions from Fish Princess Farms. Currently, local artist, Barbara Bailey-Porter's original plein air paintings of Santa Cruz, grace the walls as part of Magical Oasis's guest artist series.

Magical Oasis is a Spanish styled house that was designed to capture the views from every room. It is tastefully appointed with antiques and comfortable fine furnishings. A detached private casita with full kitchen is ideal for in laws, another couple or in-house massage.

There are lots of fabulous dinning options in Santa Cruz and we also recommend engaging one of our a personal chefs and dining in. The view from Magical Oasis's beautiful dining is truly magical! For variety, guests can barbecue on the private patio, picnic on the beach, or walk/bike to many nearby restaurants. There are lots of fun beach town venues, (great burgers and artisan pizza), and foodies will love the variety of restaurants offering organic produce and original fare. We are happy to help you choose from over 27 Zagat rated restaurants and enjoy sharing our favorites.

The gourmet or aspiring chef may enjoy trying recipes from several fine cook books such as Tyler Florence's Ultimate, and Julie Rosso's Great Good Food while cooking on the Merritt O'Keefe six burner gas stove. For the coffee aficionado, bring your pods for the new Nespesso machine or walk down to Ideal for a great latte. The West Side is home to the largest New Leaf Market, several vintner tasting rooms, Kelly's French Bakery, Companion Bakers,and El Salchichero.

The world-famous Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, SC Wharf, the Light House, the Santa Cruz Surfing Museum are all just short stolls on the wide newly paved West Cliff promenade. Also with in short walking distance are lots of shops, great restaurants, spas, bike, surf board, and segway rentals. Pedi-taxi's and the Santa Cruz Trolley are also fun ways to get about town.

Santa Cruz is home to some of the best surfing. Mid to advanced level surfers can walk down the steps to the famous Steamer Lane. The novice surfer can hit Cowell’s Cove, try paddle boarding around the Wharf or Kayaking, then relax in Magical Oasis’ hot tub.

Santa Cruz has something for all. Guests can take a ride on the Roaring Camp Railroads, bike on the numerous paths or take a segway along West Cliff, see a Shakespeare Santa Cruz play, visit the Seymour Marine Discovery Center or go wine tasting at several West Side vintner tasting rooms.

Golfers, reserve your time on the challenging Alister McKensie designed Pasatiempo Golf Course, or the Delevaga Course ( which also has a challenging ultimate frisbee course). The drive to Pebble Beach and Spy Glass are beautiful and about an hour.

There are pick up beach volley ball games, two newly surfaced tennis courts are not far from the house. Soccer, rock climbing, in door batting cage are just some of the recreational opportunities besides hiking, biking and playing in the surf. After a great day of exploring, guests can engage our in -house masseuse then soak in the large hot tub.

Downtown Santa Cruz has great shopping, spas, yoga classes, restaurants, and that comfortable beach town feel. Magical Oasis is a special vacation home that offers one of the most spectacular, magical views on the West Coast.

"Ed and Karen,
We had such a wonderful week I don't know where to begin. Incredible views, great food, quality family time and so many fun things to do. Our youngest boys couldn't get enough of the sea lions, beach, and Boardwalk. While the older two enjoyed surf lessons and an awesome segway tour! We also did memorable day trips to San Francisco and Capitola. No matter what our plans each day were though, I have to say the boys always couldn't wait to come back home to Magical Oasis. It's so relaxing and inviting....... we loved hot tubbing, having a glass of wine on the front porch, playing cards out back, family meals in the beautiful dining room, morning coffee and a good book in the living room with the view ect. ect.!! And the guest cottage was perfect for my mom. Thank you so much for sharing your home and giving us precious memories for a life time.

We wanted this to be a special time with our kids and new granddaughter and, indeed, it was and in no small part due to this wonderful home. The view! The View! The VIEW!! Absolutely grand! Felt like we could monitor all the activity in town. The hot tub was excellent and the a fire on a cool night - superb! The quiet house is an oasis within "The Oasis". Terrific. We got to walk to the Boardwalk and the Wharf. Spent a day at the Monterey Bay Aquarium and visited Ano Nuevo State Reserve where we saw hundreds of elephant seals. Wow! Also got a tour of the of the UCSC campus by our nephew who attends. Couldn't have been better and we'll always remember it. Thank you.

This Magical Oasis was exactly as advertised...a most wonderful waterfront home, outfitted for the discerning traveler. The kitchen was well equipped with high end pots, pans and knives, something I have never experienced in a rental home. The bedrooms are beautifully appointed, as is the living room and outside patios.

I enthusiastically recommend this unique rental to anyone wanting to rent the best for a very reasonable price. The owner is unusually attentive to your questions and is very professional in all his transactions.

Magical Oasis puts you in the heart of Santa Cruz...you won't want to leave!!
