More than I could have imagined!

  • 5 of 5
Just got back from a few days at the Magical Oasis (wish we could have stayed longer!), and I can say it met and exceeded every expectation. I am already looking at our calendar to see when we can go back! My family enjoyed a much needed getaway. Many thanks to the owners for sharing their very special home.

Simply The Best!

  • 5 of 5
I don't generally do reviews/ratings but I was more than happy to make an exception for our stay at the Magical Oasis. It was without a doubt the most memorable stay my family have ever experienced utilizing VRBO. The quality of the home along with the amenities provided and of course the location make it a must consideration if you are looking to stay in the Santa Cruz area. Our party of eight had a wonderful time enjoying all the comforts of the home and the casita was an extra bonus for two in our party who were celebrating their anniversary. All in all our stay to celebrate with family was one of those rare events in life that went off without one complaint. Thanks Ed for the opportunity for us to stay in your beautiful home!

Best on the Boardwalk!

  • 5 of 5
"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.

A most enjoyable vacation

  • 5 of 5
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.
