Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for another wonderful week at the beach in Santa Cruz. The new living room furniture is super comfortable, exceptionally supportive, and very easy to keep clean (leather is great at the coast!). We spent hours reclined watching the waves along West Cliff. This was the most relaxing trip of the year. We appreciated the updated kitchen and very organized drawers. Everything was top notch. As always, we will return and continue to refer our family, friends, neighbors, and coworkers. You do an amazing job.

Awesome Beachfront Birthday Weekend Getaway House!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived Friday evening and started our weekend with Upper Crust Pizza which was delicious! :) The accommodations were just perfect! Our beds were delightfully comfortable and VERY clean. Probably one of the best night’s sleep we have had in a while. Waking up to see the ocean is just fantastic – great view from the front bedroom! We spent the day at the beach with the kids and were pleasantly surprised to find boogie boards and sand toys to use at the house which was awesome! We roasted marshmallows with the kids Saturday evening in the backyard on the fire pit which the kids really enjoyed. Everything we possibly needed was at the house which was so nice, even down to coffee filters. My elderly mother was with us and there were pull bars in the bathroom for her and the bed was a perfect height to get in and out of.

The location of the house is perfect, Restaurants, Natural Bridges, the Boardwalk, even Safeway are all right there. The furniture was clean and VERY comfortable. We also enjoyed lounging in the wonderful recliners just staring out to the ocean and people watching. Sunday my husband ran in the half marathon for his 50th and it was so much fun sitting and watching all the runners come by. We enjoyed the patio quite a bit as the view is spectacular.

We really enjoyed our stay and wish we could have stayed longer. The house is amazing. There wasn’t anything we didn’t have that we needed. I cannot wait for our next weekend getaway at the house!!!!!

Amazing Views, Nice Beach In Front, Close to Everything Fun - Boardwalk, Pier, Downtown Santa Cruz!

  • 5 of 5

In a word, MAGNIFICENT! I could not have asked for a better place to experience the coast. The west side is the best side! No parking permits/problems, no traffic or congestion, no morning fog. This house was perfect - super clean, well appointed, comfortable for all generations (single-story and even had grab bars in the showers/bathrooms for the older folks in our family), enclosed backyard with mobile fire pit and plenty of good seating, detached garage with a lot beach stuff for the kids to use, great leather recliners and other furnishings, and nice selection of movies and family board games for evening family fun. Great sandy beach in front, and the tide pools to the far left are incredible. Views from almost every room in the house - including from the backyard! For those who travel with a dog, it's a wonderful spot for everyone in the family. West Cliff Drive (where the house is located) is very dog friendly, and you can walk from Natural Bridges to the Santa Cruz Pier and Boardwalk along a wide oceanfront sidewalk. We also took our dog and kids to the school and field just a 1/2 block behind the house. Great playground, tennis courts, skate park, and huge grassy fields. Highly recommend this oceanfront house at the beach, and plan to return - often!

Fun winter break

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this beach house on winter break. It was a breath of fresh brisk air. I walked along west cliff on the sidewalk with my poodle daily. My husband and I cooked in the kitchen a lot. All of the appliances and cooking gadgets were there. We are big TV watchers and all of the bedrooms have TV's. The place was clean. We will be back.

Beach Girls

  • 5 of 5

Consider a dream vacation with your girlfriends that you have known for years. This is an ideal home to stay in. There are three spacious bedrooms with very comfortable beds. Its not a vacation if the beds are crummy! There is a nice kitchen, with a cozy space for dining. There are two full bathrooms, with a nice warming heater/fan, nice showers and counter space which every woman needs! There is also a nice large family room with fireplace tv and dvd player where the party gets going with favorite chick flicks and chocolate in some form or another. This room also has a beautiful large window across the front of it providing a breath taking ocean view! We have spotted, through the use of house binoculars, whales, sea lions and dolphins of course. How awesome is that! There is a nice separate dining area where you can have a special dinner or work projects such as beading, scrape booking, and cake decorating just to name a few. There is also a beautiful landscaped courtyard nestled between the house and large garage. Complete with fire pit, barbeque and outside table and chairs and lounge chairs for reading or soaking up the sun. Also it has a bar with chairs for those who like to wine and dine. Not us though, we drink sparkling cider or diet coke with cherries. One of our favorite things about this house is the location, location, location! A short walk across the street puts you on a 5 mile paved trail that overlooks the beautiful ocean, spotted with surfers and a historical light house. It doesn't get much better than that! There is also a great little Mexican Restaurant we call the Taco Shack within walking distance. Right around the corner is the pier complete with little shops and fine dinning, however we are a little more casual and like to eat our claim chowder bowl out on the picnic beaches with the seagulls. You can also hear the sea lions bark and see them below as you look over the railing. The Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk is full of rides, food and fun! We look forward to this vacation every year and have decided we will go until the day we die. Last but not least, we adore the owner! It has been our pleasure to rent from such a sweet lady! She is very dependable and very easy to communicate with. Thanks for all the great memories. We look forward to many more. The Beach Girls

Fantastic Ocean Front Accomodation

  • 5 of 5

Had wonderful long weekend at this beautifully appointed ocean front residence. Comfy king size beds/flat screen TV's in each bedroom. Ideal accommodation for our 'all female' annual reunion. Fully equipped kitchen for eating in; and the owner thoughtfully provided a list of restaurants, cafes, bakeries for dining out. We took advantage of the house's prime ocean front location for long walks (or runs) along the beach. Very therapeutic!
