This property is in a great location and has an amazing view of the ocean - watching the sunsets from the upper deck was one of our favorite things to do. The layout of the main living area is very functional with two separate sitting spaces, a nicely appointed kitchen, and a dining table with great views of the ocean.
For families only needing 3 bedrooms (or parties that need four bedrooms that all plan on going to bed at the same time) the layout of this house will be perfect. You will never tire of looking at the ocean while laying in bed from either of the king bedrooms. For us the fourth bedroom was a bit of an inconvenience because it is actually open to the main living space - it's more of a loft than a stand alone bedroom. Those staying in that room can hear everything happening in the main living space.
Cheerful, light, roomy, well appointed, great beach access, able to build a nice campfire in the ring on the beach for marshmallow roasting-s’mores, great surfing and fishing from shore and beautiful sunsets. Perfect for families and little kids. Good parking. Convenient location to Monterey Bay Aquarium and Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. Decent price! An overall good experience at Sand Dollar Beach.
