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

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 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.

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

ROADTRIP 45

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!!

QUIET, COMFORTABLE AND CLOSE TO THE BEACH!

  • 5 of 5
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.

CAN'T GET ANY BETTER

Can't get any better

With two kids and a puppy, this place could not have possibly been any more perfect for my wife and our family.
Location? Two- or three- minute walk to one of three beach access points. 10-minute or less drive to Boardwalk. Home? Felt more like our home and nothing close to a rental. Amenities? They had absolutely everything for our dog and kids to play with (and a DVD and book collection to make anyone jealous). Kitchen? Almost no reason to dine out. Add in a nice front yard and backyard complete with firepit, lawn and ample seating for a small army and there is really no reason for my family to ever rent anywhere else in the Santa Cruz area. Will definitely come back and have already recommended to friends and family. Sets the bar pretty high!
