BEACH LOVER'S RETREAT, PERFECT HOME FOR FAMILIES OR PET OWNERS

Santa Cruz House Rental Photos and Description

Home, 2 Bedrooms + Queen sofa bed, 2 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

Exceptional value! Perfect for small families or people with dogs. This immaculate, quiet, very comfortable and clean beach home is offered as a weekly vacation rental (or two-day or more retreat during low season). Our two-bedroom/two-bath home, which sleeps six comfortably, is 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 2 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.

Our home is tastefully decorated in a contemporary style with a soothing and warm tropical feel and lacks of nothing, with an open living room, large dining/game room, large bedrooms with comfortable bedding, clean fresh towels and linen, a kitchen stocked with all the utensils required to make a beautiful and tasty meal and newly remodeled bathrooms, with a zen feel and personal soaps and amenities to make you feel like you are in a five star hotel.

The property is fenced in, perfect for pet owners or families with small children. The yard is large and has a firepit for roasting marshmallows or hanging out on cold nights around the fire.

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. Or just pamper yourself with a spa treatment in town or at one of the many coffee hang-outs or bookstores nearby.

Perfect for a peaceful romantic get-away, or a fun family vacation. We are located 5 minutes from 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 look forward to sharing our wonderful beach cottage with you. Pamper yourself and come experience all the wonders of Santa Cruz County and the beautiful surrounding areas. 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.

Keywords: Clean, spacious and perfectly kept home near beach, very pet friendly, big yard, great beach, wonderful as romantic getaway or for families with small children and/or dogs

Hi there,

Cal, our Australian Shepherd Mattie and I 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 and 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. 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 our beautiful beach home.

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. It was also very dog friendly, which was important to us. As we walk the beach, we spot the otters, seals, porpoises and pelicans glide the surface of the water. We also wanted something with a wonderful big back yard and within a minute from the beach. This was hard to find because many properties so 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 firepit to roast marshmallows and hang around to warm 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.

Perfect beach house for a family!

Lovely house, nicely modernized with lots and lots of attention to detail. Immaculate with everything you could need from soaps, linens, beach towels to games for the kids. Just a block from the beach in a nice quiet neighborhood, but only a short distance from all the hot spots. Perfect for a family. Cal and Linda were helpful and responsive with all aspects of the rental including questions about a local cat!

Perfect Santa Cruz home.

This was a perfect get away for my son,daughter in law and myself.
The home has so many lovely touches. We enjoyed the decor which is "beachy" but very tasteful.
Everything we needed was available-from kitchen items to toiletries and beach towels.
A very short walk to the end of the block leads to a lovely beach.Downtown Santa Cruz was great for lunch and shopping on the lovely tree lined streets.
Cal was very friendly and helpful.
We really had a wonderful stay and hope to return soon ( with my husband this time for a romantic trip)

Happy Vacationer

We have rented many times thru VRBO all over the world and this is the first time I have felt compelled to write a review.
I can't say enough positive things about Beach Lovers Retreat. It had everything one would need for a vacation away from home. It was clean and very comfortable. While we don't have a dog, it even had everything a pet would require. I would highly recommend this rental to anyone with or without a family or pets. We will definitely try to stay here again when coming to Santa Cruz.
I had the opportunity to talk to one of the owners and she was so friendly, it felt like I'd known her all my life.
It lived up to all of the positive reviews.

Great place for a family with young children

This was our second week at the Beach Lover's retreat and we had a great time once again. As a family with young children, the proximity to the beach is invaluable. So is the outside shower :-). Santa Cruz also has a lot to offer and staying at the Beach Lover's Retreat is a good compromise between proximity to downtown Santa Cruz and a nice quiet neighborhood.
