I love santa cruz and always dreamt of having a house here since i went to UCSC. I was finally able to find a gorgeous house that i could remodel completely near the beach and enjoy with my own family, and offer to other families to vacation and enjoy the area as well.

Veda Putnam purchased this house in 2012

Great neighborhood centrally located to everything. Surfing, boogie boarding, near boardwalk, downtown and capitola. Near Nisene Marks State park with great hiking and mountain biking. One hour to monterey! THis property is very unique in that it has 2 cottages one property that offer privacy and yet allow for 2 families or extended family vacation or small group looking for a great vacation. Unusual so close to beach and action of yacht harbor, water activities, hiking, and with a backyard and off street parking!

The front porch is large and has an oceanview, you can hear the waves at night. It is one story making it great for all ages. The 2 cottages offer unique privacy or open together for easy flow between houses. There are a total of 4 bdrms, 2 bathrooms, 2 washers/dryers, 3-4 off street parking spaces, and a backyard all on one property.

The front cottage was built in 1920s and maintains its original charm throughout the complete remodel. The back cottage was built in 1960 and the remodel enabled us to add lots of windows and skylights and a huge bathroom that makes it light/bright and connected to the backyard.

11 houses to the beach stairs that take you to Twin lakes/Blacks Beach. You can walk from beach or house to popular Yacht Harbor/ Crows Nest area with coffee shops, tacos, beach volleyball or stay on uncrowded side of our beach that is more quiet and much less crowded. SUP, kayaks and surfboards are available for rent at yacht harbor.

Santa Cruz Eastside offers some of the best surfing West Coast at pleasure point and is minutes to great hiking/mountain biking , Beach Boardwalk, and Capitola . UCSC offers wonderful plays/music/events and a famous arboretum. Natural bridges and the seymour marine center are located on the wonderful westside just a 10 minute drive.

2ND TIME JUST AS GOOD

  • 5 of 5
This was the second time my friends and I used these cottages. Everything remains just like before and we can never get over how close we are to the beach. The beach is great and isn't overcrowded.

This time, I had trouble locating the parking passes but the manager was very helpful and stopped by the cottage to find them for me.

Owner's Response: Bill and is group are amazing. My housekeeper said it was the cleanest group she has ever seen! He is great to work with and we would love to have you next year Bill! I apologize for the parking guess passes. We are having trouble with people taking them home and have instituted a new policy with fines to prevent people and I try to send a text to outgoing guest reminding them to leave them for the next guest.

TWIN COTTAGES

  • 5 of 5
The rental was wonderful! Plenty of room for all the family and friends, close to the beach and downtown. Clean and well maintained. Veda was a pleasure to work with and helped make our experience enjoyable. I highly recommend Twin Cottages for any small family or group needing clean, affordable, and convenient place to stay in Santa Cruz.

CHRISTMAS IN SANTA CRUZ

  • 5 of 5
We all loved it from the 4 year old up to the 60 year old. Well stocked, comfortable, easy to cook in, outside living areas, great jacuzzi too.
The only drawback the tall folks mentioned was the beds were Queen not King, a bit short for some of us.

FAMILY TIME IN SANTA CRUZ

  • 5 of 5
The two cottages were great! They were well equipped for my family as we met together and prepared for my daughter's wedding. Rooms were roomy...had everything that we needed. My husband enjoyed walking to the beach and watching the whales that were just off shore. I would definitely consider staying in the cottages again.

GREAT FAMILY VACATION

  • 4 of 5
The cottages were cute, clean and well maintained. The location was great, it was centrally located in any direction we wanted to go, from Santa Cruz to Capitola, perfect. The cottage had most amenities that one would need, we only had to buy a couple of things to our personal liking. It had everything you need to take down to the beach for fun and relaxing. I found that the towels provided were not enough however, wish there were a few more. I would probably switch the main house beds, the 2 trundles to the front bedroom and the double bed to the back bedroom, so you could use all the trundle beds not just the 3. The beach was so close it made for a great time. We could go back to the house and eat and not have to take all the food down to the beach with us. That was great. We had a wonderful time. Would recommend the Twin Cottages to any family or friends.

COULDN'T HAVE ASKED FOR MORE - KID FRIENDLY, SPACIOUS, CLEAN, SECONDS FROM THE BEACH

Couldn't have asked for more - Kid Friendly, Spacious, Clean, Seconds from the Beach
  • 5 of 5
My family of 4 along with 3 other families with small children all stayed in these 2 cottages and I can't emphasize enough what a great time we had. We were pleasantly surprised how nicely remodeled this place was. It was as if the pictures didn't do it justice. Our 6 kids ranged from 3 months to 3 years old, so cleanliness was a big deal. Also, when you have kids, eating out is a pain, so we cooked a lot in the kitchens that had everything we needed to cook all our meals (I did bring my own crock pot & several uncommon ingredients). The bathrooms were clean and the showers were really nice. There are 2 outdoor showers with hot water to wash off the sand from the beach that is just several houses down the road. It was awesome - almost like having your private beach. While we were there, we saw sea lions and caught little, tiny crabs, that we did release back into the ocean. When we weren't at the beach, we went to the Boardwalk which is just about 1 mile away. Although we contemplated walking the 25 minutes to get there, we decided to drive ($20 for parking per car, all day). When we weren't out and about, there's also a jacuzzi that allows you to adjust the temperature, so we were able to make it less hot for the kids. The kids were totally entertained playing in and out of the cottages, stepping onto the patio in the front and watching people walk their dogs, and just playing with the toys and games that were provided in the common areas. Lastly, the stress of finding the right place was eased when I contacted the owner. She was available by phone/email, honest, and flexible. Overall, from start to finish (acquiring our security deposit back), everything was easy with no complaints. I'm having a family reunion this winter, and even though Santa Cruz is probably not a winter vacation city, I'm considering coming back since we had such a great experience this summer. I can go on and on about how all our needs were met. I honestly can't think of one thing that was missing or needed improvement. We'll be back here again for sure.
