Overview

Santa Cruz House Rental Photos and Description

Home, 2 Bedrooms + Queen sofa bed (Sleeps 6), 2 Baths, Gourmet Kitchen, WiFi

Our relaxing beach retreat is tastefully decorated in a contemporary Balinese style with a soothing and warm tropical feel, and lacks of nothing. It is immaculate, quiet, and very comfortable—and just a block from the beach.

A FIVE-STAR EXPERIENCE

It’s all in the details.

This remodeled beach home’s focus is on comfort and relaxation. It has a peaceful, tropical feel throughout that puts you at ease, accented with unique art and handcrafted furnishings.

A spacious, open-concept floor plan keeps you connected, and the welcoming living and dining areas encourage you to sit down and enjoy time together.

Prepare a meal in the well-stocked gourmet kitchen and then enjoy it in the Balinese-inspired dining room.

We provide soft white towels, high-thread count sheets, and a collection of quality personal bath care items. Robes and slippers will be waiting for you, too.

Beach Lover’s Retreat is another level of dog-friendly, with plush doggie beds, blankets and a dog-friendly beach just at the end of the street. Plus, our backyard is fenced for their safety and your convenience. One guest commented, “…my dog is still wondering why we had to come home.”

In-home entertainment abounds – provided are libraries of hit movies, children movies, and multi-genre music CDs for your enjoyment! We also have a large family game collection.

HANG-OUT(SIDE)

After a long day at the beach or the Boardwalk, gather around the outdoor fire pit.

There is a Weber gas grill for preparing your fresh catch-of-the-day from the Santa Cruz wharf and other finds from the nearby farmers’ markets.

Enjoy your meals around the backyard dining table next to the grill, and relax afterward in our lounge chairs.

The secure fenced backyard means you can let your children and four-legged companion run free. And there is an outdoor hot + cold shower for use after coming off the beach or when the pup has rolled in the sand all day.

IT’S YOUR KIND OF BEACH NEIGHBORHOOD

Our vacation home is located in a safe residential neighborhood that embraces the best of the “Santa Cruz vibe.” It’s very much a “wave and say hi” kind of place.

The beach’s sand and waves are right at the end of our street, just a block away. We’re within walking distance of 41st Avenue, the main artery in the area for restaurants, coffee houses and shops.

There’s plenty of parking with 3 on-driveway spots all your own.

We are located just 5 to 10 driving minutes from the Boardwalk and Capitola, and 15 minutes from the eclectic Pacific Street shopping / dining downtown area. The home is 50ish minutes from Monterey and Carmel.

YOU’LL BECOME A SANTA CRUZ INSIDER

We’ll provide you access to a customized smartphone and web app that is loaded with our Santa Cruz Insider’s Guide. Plus we are just a quick reply away with answers to any questions you may have.

And we give back to the Santa Cruz community - through donations to the Second Harvest Food Bank Santa Cruz County and the Land Trust of Santa Cruz County.

OUR GUESTS SAY GREAT THINGS

Some of the things our guests often tell us are:

• We’ve created a space that is welcoming, comfortable, and soothing—all at once;

• The beach-home feels like their very-own; and

• They don’t want to leave!

Many guests come back to stay with us year after year.

About Linda Lanzl and Cal Hoagland

Hi there! Our family—Cal, our Australian Shepherd, Mattie, and myself, Linda—would like to welcome you to our beach home.

We bought this place so we could eventually retire near the ocean. In the meantime, we’ve taken a lot of pride in decorating to make it feel truly like a home away from home, with all the amenities (and a few extras) to create a warm, inviting and peaceful place for our guests. Our neighborhood is safe and the folks are warm-hearted and full of that unique Santa Cruz spirit.

Cal and I love to travel and are blessed to have visited many exotic and wonderful locations around the world, and this is why you will find a host of travel and destination books from places we’ve enjoyed. If you’ve also been bitten by the travel bug, have a look through them and enjoy!

Linda Lanzl and Cal Hoagland purchased this house in 2006

Why Linda Lanzl and Cal Hoagland chose Santa Cruz

We chose this location because it’s a wonderful neighborhood near one of the best beaches in Santa Cruz. The beach is just at the end of the block and it’s very dog friendly, which was important to us. Walking the shoreline, we’ve spotted many otters, seals, porpoises, and even whales. We also love seeing the plentiful pelicans line-up in formation and glide over the surface of the water. We wanted a home with a nice-sized backyard, which was difficult to find, especially this close to the coast. But we found one! And our landscaped backyard is one of our favorite spots.

We were thrilled to get everything we wanted with the Beach Lover's Retreat, and we love sharing our cherished place by the Pacific with others!

What makes this house unique

Our home has a distinctive tropical yet modern flair, with every aspect chosen with the comfort of our guests in mind. The kitchen is completely renovated and is stocked with everything you need. The bedrooms are spacious and luxurious. The bathrooms have a nautical, yet Zen, feel. The backyard is a real treat with patio furniture, a gas BBQ, lounge chairs and a wonderful fire pit to roast marshmallows and hotdogs and cozy up to on brisk nights. You can hear the ocean waves from here. We also have a wonderful sitting area in the front of the house and folks love it because you can people watch and wave and say hello to neighbors, or sip and savor your morning coffee. It really makes you feel connected to the neighborhood. And we enjoy being hosts to our guests to ensure they feel special—like locals!—and have a great Santa Cruz visit.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a lovely home you have. We enjoyed it so much. Great location and everyhting we needed. Decor is beautiful. We enjoyed the beach, the boardwalk, walks in the morning and your DVD collection catching up on new movies we hadn't seen. We hope to visit again.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5
We took my daughter and two friends for her 17th birthday. The house was great and had everything we could possibly need. We made s'mores by the outdoor fire pit, walked to the beach, lounged in the sun on the outdoor sectional and had a great time. Lots of board games, books movies, the house was extremely well stocked. The owners were very helpful in answering questions and the reservation process. They have obviously have put a lot of thought and effort into creating a home where you can relax the minute you walk in the door. Thank you!

Lovely home for a family

  • 5 of 5
ww came to beach lovers retreat to relax and hang out with our kids on the beach. The house is so relaxing with its comfy sofa and open floor plan kitchen. The house also came with tons of DVDs and vhs's of kids flicks so our 4 year old could chill and enjoy his holiday. We just loved the house and it's so close to the beach, the waves are loud from the front garden. Thanks for making our holiday five stars, Cal and Linda!!

Santa Cruz Beach Rental

  • 5 of 5
My husband, son and I thoroughly enjoyed our weekend at the Beach Lovers Retreat. The beach was a close walk away and we were lucky that it happened to be a prominent surfing location for our son. Our 2 dogs were comfortable and happy as well. The bed was soft and warm, the kitchen well stocked, and the grounds were neat and pretty. We could tell that the owners were very thoughtful and had included everything to make our stay comfortable. Thank you!
