Whatever you fancy doing on your vacation - this well designed, remodeled and well-cared for home in one of Santa Cruz’s best neighborhoods is the perfect spot.
Equipped with just about everything you’d need for a great family vacation, the downstairs has an open plan kitchen and dining room (seats 8), a large living room opening out to a 2 level deck and beautiful garden. Downstairs has a separate guest bedroom with attached full bath. Upstairs has a master suite and an additional children’s sleeping area with twin bunk beds. The master suite has a California King sized bed and the adjacent bathroom has a large double shower to wash away the day’s sand and sun. The house is light, spacious and tastefully furnished and high quality linens are present in all bedrooms and baths. Out on the back deck, you’ll find a spa and fully equipped outdoor kitchen featuring a Viking range plus seating for 8.
The Seabright neighborhood of Santa Cruz is a coastal gem. Take a leisurely ten minute stroll to the beach; stop off for a coffee and some people watching at Java Junction or head across the trestle bridge over to the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk to enjoy the rides (10-15 minute walk). Just a few minutes away from the house and you can grab a local beer at the Seabright brewery, visit Betty's Burgers or stop off for a delicious pizza from the wood fired oven at Engfer’s Pizzaworks. Sample breakfast at the Seabright Café or treat yourself to dinner at La Posta Italian – there are many choices within a few minutes walk from the house; or if you want to venture downtown, the heart of Santa Cruz is only a mile away. There are several high quality restaurants and grocery stores within minutes of the house by car.
Other attractions in the neighborhood include the tide pools up the coast on West Cliff drive, the wharf with its many family friendly restaurants and many beautiful local beaches and cliff walks. Venture further afield for some shopping in upscale Carmel, wine tasting in Carmel Valley or check out the marine wonders at the Monterrey Bay Aquarium.
Seabright beach itself is known as one of the best beaches in the area, with a decent surf break and lifeguards during the summer months. The micro-climate in the area is such that the fog stays away during the summer days and temperatures are generally in the mid-70’s to 80’s. You can have pit fires on the beach at night.
All in all, this is a great home for a family or families with a couple of kids. The upstairs master can accommodate 2 adults with 2 kids in the upstairs children’s room; downstairs the bedroom has a queen and there is an additional small sleeper/futon in the large hall area downstairs so the property can easily sleep 5 adults or 4 adults and 2-4 kids. We also have many baby and child items which could be made available to a family needing/wanting them, such as high chair, baby crib and toys. Otherwise these items will be stored out of your way during your visit.
The kitchen is fully equipped – bake cupcakes, roast a chicken on the rotisserie spit on the outdoor grill or help yourself to the waffle iron and juicer for a delicious breakfast. Santa Cruz has many local farmers markets and being in the heart of agricultural country, the fresh meats, fruits & vegetables and delicious breads, pies and crepes they have to offer will make cooking and eating on the outdoor deck as delightful as visiting one of the many local restaurants in Seabright or Santa Cruz.
Beach towels. mats and chairs; beach toys available.
DirecTV with hundreds of channels, including some premium. 47 inch HD TV’s in bedroom and living room. DVR/DVD player and selection of DVDs for use.
Crib, baby bouncer and other baby equipment available. Good selection of children's toys (under 5) available if desired.
This is a perfect house for a family vacation. We were able to relax and let our three kids play in the yard. The location was excellent and the house was amazing!
I want to personally Thank the owners Jo and Bart for having this wonderful rental available to rent. I know ill be back. The location is the best for Santa Cruz. Close to everything. And the best part about the rental is EVERYTHING !!!!! So comfy and cozy. The garden of flowers in the back yard is unreal. Really I had the most relaxing and best time ever going in the hot tub looking at the stars. Listening to music and lounging around the house. Iv never stayed somewhere and felt so at home. Bravo to you two for creating such a wonderful environment for people to experience. I look forward to more + highly recommend this house to anyone who wants to enjoy life while relaxing. ☆☆☆☆☆
My husband and I were floored by how thoughtfully appointed and well maintained this home is! From the moment we entered, we felt relaxed and comfortable. The location is perfect - an easy walk to great restaurants and the beach - but because it's in a residential neighborhood, you don't have to deal with louder, "vacation rental" party types. Everything in the home was modern, elegant, and high-quality - plus the backyard is a rejuvenating oasis! We hope to stay here again some other summer, and are grateful to the owner for providing so many kid-friendly toys and equipment with the rental!
This beautiful, well-appointed home is located in the perfect spot--close to restaurants (must eat at Tramonti), markets and, most importantly, Seabright Beach. A short 10 min walk allows you access to a clean, non-crowded, fun portion of the beach, just a few miles away from the boardwalk. This is also a must see! We had so much fun in the shops and riding the great rides.
The home was perfect for our family of five. Plenty of space for the kids to run around and incredible outside space to enjoy after a long day at the beach. The outside kitchen and hot tub are definite highlights. The owners are very quick to answer any texts/emails you might have. Bart was a great help during our stay. The price of this rental is a bargain compared to some of the hotel prices in the area, with much more space. The home is beautiful and we had a great time. We would LOVE to come back! Thanks!!!
Loved our time at this property in Santa Cruz. It was everything it was described to be and more. The location is prime for everything Santa Cruz has to offer as well as for driving up and down the coastal highway. The owner was more than accommodating and so helpful in making sure our stay was perfect. Our group had three adults and two children. The house was perfect, the backyard is gorgeous and so relaxing after a busy day vacationing. The hot tub was perfect! Thanks so much for a great stay!
This delightful house was everything we wanted. It is clean, peaceful, close to activities, and very comfortable. The backyard is a beautiful space. Neighbors are friendly and a nice dog park is an easy walk from the house. Parking is ample for cars. The owner was very helpful, and worried about our stay due to the fence blowing over in a recent storm, which didn't hamper our experience any; it was perfect. When we vacation in Santa Cruz we will rent this house again. Thanks for a terrific holiday!
