Overview

Santa Cruz House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

This home is right on the beach, normally steps to the sand, with a spectacular 180-degree view of the beautiful bay from Monterey/Carmel to Santa Cruz, Santa Cruz city lights by night. We are also 4 homes away from our second beach, Moran State Beach, which has sand access right to the street should there be a high tide or sand loss in front of the home. This access is also recommended for small children or the elderly, rather then the stairs through the rocks in front of the home. Enjoy world class surfing at Pleasure Point and WindanSea surf breaks right out front, or relax on the huge oceanside deck or the second story master suite deck, BBQ and watch the surfers, sailboats, seals on the rock, otters, dolphins, pelicans and ocean activity. Stroll or bike to Capitola along the beach front bike path. Enjoy numerous quality restaurants and nearby night life. Very close to the Harbor for dining and fishing.

We have 3 King Beds and 1 Queen, one bedroom is detached through the courtyard for privacy, 3 bathrooms. Hot/cold tropical outdoor shower! Smart TV & Blue Ray/ DVD (in Living Room), TV and DVD in ever bedroom, IPOD/IPAD connection to Living Room Stereo, IPOD connection in Master Suite, Water Filtration System throughout home!

Enjoy the peaceful setting and gorgeous sunsets with the sound of the ocean throughout the home. This two-story vacation home sleeps eight persons. Two bedrooms open into interior courtyard. The master suite comprises the entire second story, oceanfront.

Sorry, no pets. For those who smoke, please do so outside only.

Feels like home

  • 5 of 5

Spent another great week at this property. It gets better every year. Fantastic deck with brand new bbq. Latest audio and video equipment. Plenty of towels, dishes, cookware, etc. plenty of room for everyone. Last but not least is the master suite upstairs and private.

Amazing House

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week and didn’t want to leave! The views from both the main level and the master suite are incredible!! Not only did we luck out with perfect weather, but we could see dolphins and seals daily from the decks. During low tide, beach access from the back of the house is easy and convenient. The house is really cozy, well-furnished, fully equipped and the guest suite is an added bonus. In addition, the rental contract was straight forward and everything was as stated upon arrival and labeled in the house for reminders. This is the perfect beach rental for a family vacation. We’ll definitely be back!

Perfect for family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here, not long enough. It was a celebration for a 60th birthday. The 8 of us were here and just had the best time. We'll do this again next year. The weather was perfect and so much to do but I would rather stay and enjoy the house and beach. The best place in Santa Cruz area. Can't wait to come back next year!

WORTH THE DRIVE

  • 5 of 5

We traveled from Idaho to spend time with our adult children and one grandchild. All of us, from age 67 through age 30 months, had a marvelous time. We had no safety concerns for our little guy, and the adults immensely enjoyed the sounds and view from both the magnificent deck and the fully-glassed living/dining area. The downstairs view is only exceeded by the view we enjoyed from the upstairs bedroom. I could spend an entire day reading and looking and listening from the comfort of the chaise lounge upstairs. Tara was very helpful, the home was well equipped, and certainly we would recommend this property to friends and family.

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed here with a large family group in town for a wedding. We had a wonderful time and the house is amazing. We sat on the deck watching otters, dolphins, seals - even saw a pilot whale. The main beach is 3 houses away and Pleasure Point is a very short walk for the kids in our group who wanted to surf.

We had some visitors from the wedding party who were staying at a hotel in town (and paying much more per night) and they were very jealous of the house and location. We also rented another house 1 door down (Santa Cruzn' on the Beach) and the combination was great. We hated to leave!
