Overview

Opal Cliffs House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Completely remodeled in 2007, our two-story, 4 bedroom with 3 full baths, beach house is just five doors to the sand and GREAT surfing! Our new large deck with seating for 10 has a fabulous ocean view featuring a Deluxe Gas BBQ. This new Trex deck was built in 2006 and it is completely safe for children. Our downstairs patio also has seating for 6 PLUS a HOT TUB, and features an outdoor hot/cold shower for easy beach cleanup.

Our beach house has a gorgeous gas fireplace in the living room with a complete wall of windows showcasing a great ocean view. Near the windows there is a large dining room table with seating for 8. The living room, which opens to the deck, also has a 50" flat screen TV, DVD player, and stereo system with outdoor speakers. We subscribe to Comcast Triple Play which includes Digital Premier Package (HBO, Showtime, Cinemax, Sports, etc.) All TVs in the house include this package.

Our beach house is new throughout, including a completely remodeled kitchen, which has a walkin-pantry and new stainless appliances - double oven, dishwasher, Wolfe gas cooktop. In addition, we have provided every appliance you need to make gourmet meals and exotic drinks. We have installed new carpet and tile floors throughout the house. All the mattresses, furniture, linens/towels are new this year. It has been freshly painted inside and out and it is beautifully decorated.

The master bedroom has a TV, walk-in closet, queen bed, and private bath. A second bedroom upstairs also has a queen bed, large closet, and TV. Downstairs there is a third bedroom with a trundle bed (sleeps 2) and TV. The fourth bedroom (downstairs) has a new, very comfortable queen size sofa sleeper and two single sofa sleepers (sleeps 4). This room is very large and some guests use it as a den/TV room also.

At the end of our block you will find a spectacular beach that allows for long walks, great surfing, and night time bonfires. This is definitely a beautiful, clean beach that the whole family will love.

We are only a 5 minute drive or a 2.5 mile bike ride to Capitola, which has fine dining and a great nightlife. We are also a short 5-10 minute drive to the Boardwalk. And don't worry about parking - our driveway accomodates 4 cars.

Our property is registered as a vacation rental with County of Santa Cruz and it has been approved for a permit - TOT certificate #CO00346

About candy rogers

My parents purchased this property about 25 years ago. We decided to convert this beach house to a vacation rental so we had it completely remodeled in 2007. Although this is an older home, during our remodel we gutted the house and installed new electrical/heating/ and water lines, etc. before we did the cosmetic remodel which included installing a new kitchen and updating 3 bathrooms.

candy rogers purchased this house in 1986

What makes this house unique

Our home is located on a private street that actually dead ends into the beach. Since this is a private street, there is very little traffic. We are only five doors from the beach which makes the view from our large deck truly beautiful. And of course, it is a very short walk to a great family beach.

Just two blocks away on 26th Avenue is a great surfing beach where they frequently hold surfing competitions.

Nearby are several great restaurants within walking distance - Star Bene (Italian) and Aloha Island Grillee (Hawaiian). And since we are only 5 minutes north of Capitola, you can spend an evening browsing through the shops and eating at one of its famous restaurants, such as Shadowbrook.

Best beach house on the West Coast!

  • 5 of 5

If you want a beach house close to a fun beach with lots of waves for boogie boarding, surfing, and building sand castles this is the place! Our family, ages 66 to 3 months old, walked a quick 5 minutes to the beach everyday we were there. The location is also close to the Boardwalk, the Wharf, Capitola, and other places we wanted to visit. The house was clean, comfortable (all the beds were great), and beautiful with lots of kitchen space and a large living room where we played games most every night after enjoying the hot tub. There were wonderful extras that we enjoyed and appreciated like beach chairs, beach umbrellas, boogie boards, sand toys, bikes, and an out door shower to get the sand off before we went into the house. The kitchen was stocked with every small appliance you could ever want to use and on the beautiful deck was a nice bbq grill that we used. The owners were so helpful and kind in every way and quick to get back to us with questions we had. I even asked them what paint colors they used because I now want to paint a couple of my bedrooms their colors. This is our new home away from home! We will be back! Thank you to the owners for a wonderful dream vacation for our family!!!

Fantastic stay June 10-13

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky enough to stay here for my daughter's college graduation. It could not have been better. House was beautiful and clean and extremely well stocked. The kitchen was very well stocked, there was tons of bedding and towels, the beds were very comfy, the hot tub was wonderful!! There was plenty of space and beds for 10 of us. We have stayed in many vrbo homes, and this is definitely one of the best (we've enjoyed them all actually, but this one is exceptional)! 5 stars

Amazing Family Experience

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this property. Candy was easy to work with, the home was immaculate and extremely well stocked. If you enjoy cooking, you will find all the tools (and nice, high-end ones) that you're going to need. The beds were super comfy after a day at the beach. Many beach toys that kept my kids entertained while at the beach and a little wagon to make your jaunt to the beach all that much easier. We look forward to staying here again soon!
