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.

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.

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!
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.
