BEACH LOVER'S RETREAT - PERFECT HOME FOR FAMILIES, ROMANTIC ESCAPES & DOG OWNERS

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 it is an exceptional value!

We have an open great room, large dining/game room, and spacious bedrooms with comfortable bedding and clean fresh linen.

The remodeled gourmet kitchen is stocked with all the utensils required to make a beautiful and tasty meal.

Newly remodeled bathrooms have a Zen feel, and are stocked with personal soaps, amenities and wonderful towels to make you feel like you are in a five star hotel.

The property is fenced in, perfect for families with small children or dog owners.

The yard is large and has a fire pit for hanging out and relaxing around the fire, or for roasting marshmallows and hotdogs.

We are one short block to the ocean and one of the best beaches around. There is full beach access with stairs down to the sand and two miles of beach.

We are located close to some of the best surf spots in the world. Watch for the dolphins and sea otters cruising with the surfers. You'll spot them easily from shore.

Nearby you can visit Capitola for shopping, wine tasting and dining. Or visit Pacific Street in downtown Santa Cruz for a unique shopping experience. Both are less than a 15 minute drive from our home.

The Santa Cruz Yacht Harbor is a quick drive as well as the world famous Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, all within minutes of our place.

You can also pamper yourself with a spa treatment in town, or relax at one of the many coffee hang-outs or bookstores nearby.

We are located 5 minutes from the Boardwalk and Capitola, 30 minutes from Monterey and Carmel, 45 minutes from Half Moon Bay and the Silicon Valley, and one and a half hours from San Francisco.

We have a very high customer return rate and some of our guests have been back many, many times due to our exceptional attention to detail. See what our guest reviews say about their visits.

We look forward to sharing our wonderful beach home with you and being your hosts. Come experience all the wonders of our beach home, Santa Cruz County and the beautiful surrounding areas.

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.

Hi there,

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 one day.

We have taken a lot of pride in remodeling and redecorating the house to make it feel truly like a home away from home, with all the amenities (and a few extras) to make it feel warm, inviting and peaceful.

Our neighborhood is safe and folks are warm-hearted with a true feel of the Santa Cruz spirit.

Cal and I are blessed to have traveled to 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 have enjoyed over the years - we hope you will enjoy that aspect of our place.

Welcome and enjoy!

Linda Lanzl and Cal Hoagland purchased this house in 2006

We specifically chose this location because it was a wonderful neighborhood near one of the best beaches in Santa Cruz just at the end block – a beach that is also very dog friendly, which was important to us.

As we walk this beach, we spot many otters, seals, porpoises, and pelicans that glide on the surface of the water.

We also wanted something with a wonderful big back yard, and that was hard to find because many homes close to the beach have almost no backyard. Ours is really big compared to the standard beach home.

We got all we wanted with the Beach Lover's Retreat.

Our home has a distinctive tropical yet modern flair, with every aspect of it thought through for the comfort of our guests.

It was remodeled in 2008 and we added 360 square feet of living space (including a brand new bathroom). The kitchen is completely renovated and lacks of nothing.

The bedrooms are spacious and luxurious.

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 hang around warming yourself during the brisk nights. You will be able to hear the ocean waves from our backyard.

We also have a wonderful sitting area in the front of the house and many folks love it because you can watch all the people walking by, waving to you, saying hello. It really makes you feel connected to the neighborhood.

And we enjoy being hosts to our guests to ensure they feel special and have a great Santa Cruz visit.

We have rented Beach Lover's retreat for 5 years now and are starting to feel like it is our home away from home in Santa Cruz.
Linda and Cal have made the home so comfortable for us, that it is hard to know where to start.
The furniture and decor are very nice, and the minute you walk into the front door, you feel like you have entered your very own beach retreat.
The kitchen is fully equipped for any type of meal you'd like to prepare, there are ample towels and beach towels, beach chairs etc. for your stay.
We especially always enjoy using the back yard to have meals on the patio, use the gas grill at least a couple times during our stay, and plan our evenings sitting around the fire pit.
The children love using the outdoor shower after coming in from the beach, which is equipped with hot water. Certainly cuts down on sand coming into the house!!
All in all, we Love Beach Lover's Retreat and Cal and Linda are wonderful to rent from!!

Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5
Every year we head to Santa Cruz for a week. This was the first time we stayed at the Beach Lover's Retreat and hopefully not our last. It is large 2 bedroom with all the amenities including condiments in the fridge and cupboard. Our dogs were welcome and given plush beds and lots of treats. The beach was just a block away and the neighborhood was very quiet. There was nothing more we could ask for and would recommed this place to anyone who would like a great vacation at the beach

We so enjoyed our stay at the Beach Lover's Retreat!!! It was perfect! We had stayed on the western end of town and were thrilled with the more quiet Pleasure Point. The dogs had a wonderfully relaxing week as well. The house was perfect size for all of us. The kitchen was one of the most well stocked we have rented. I cooked several nights, big family meals, and had everything I needed. Kids lounged on couch and watched movies in the evenings and it is probably the first time they have all been on a couch together in years!!! So great to enjoy time together in such a peaceful and beautiful place. Beach was great!! So close!!

Thank you so much Linda and Cal! We were able to relax! Because you have all the kitchen amenities, we never went out to eat! Love the proximity to be able to walk the trail along the ocean. We are already looking forward to 2 weeks next year. Thank you so much

Very nice

  • 5 of 5
Perfect beach house with everything we needed for a nice family gathering. We prepared all our meals there with a well stocked kitchen. Enjoyed the patio very much. We played games and read books and had a little beach time. The location is close to so many things, but we enjoyed just being there. Next time I hope to stay longer. Owners very helpful in making this happen. Thanks Cal.
