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

Santa Cruz House Rental Photos and Description

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

Travelling with your family—even your dog!—doesn’t mean giving up on awesome accommodations. This home provides a relaxing five star experience that’s romantic, while being both kid-friendly and dog-friendly, and just a block from the beach.

A FIVE STAR EXPERIENCE

It’s all in the details.

This beach home’s focus is on comfort and providing a relaxing space. It has a peaceful tropical feel throughout that puts you at ease.

The home has a spacious, open-concept floor plan that 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 the dog-friendly beach. 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 at the backyard dining table, and relax afterward in our lounge chairs.

We have a secure fenced backyard for letting your children and four-legged companions 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 Street, 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 to the eclectic Pacific Street shopping / dining downtown area.

And the home is 50ish minutes to 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.

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.

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.

Perfect Place!

  • 5 of 5
BLR provided a fantastic location for relaxing! Everything we could have asked for had been meticulously provided, prior to our arrival. Throughout our stay, we were impressed by the comfort and organization of the home. My teenager had a fantastic time enjoying the coast. We all walked daily and my dog is still wondering why we had to come home ;).
Thank you for a memorable visit to Santa Cruz.

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
