House, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)
About Amy Williams
We love the beach and have spent many summers there together as a family over the years. We feel like any trip to Santa Cruz should include our canine companions since they are part of the family.
Amy Williams purchased this House in 2003
Why Amy Williams chose Eastside Santa Cruz
Nothing compares to the serenity and beauty of the beach, so we do our best to spend as much time there as possible. This gem of a cottage caught our eye when we were dreaming of owning a beach house and fortunately for us, it was meant to be ours. It brings us such joy and pleasure and we are extremely happy to share it with our guests.
What makes this House unique
One of the things that makes this house special is the double sized lot with an expansive back yard that creates a wonderful outdoor living area. The house has a unique charm - everyone who stays here says the energy feels so warm and welcoming.

Everything as advertised, and more!
This charming beach house was perfect for us! We loved everything from the vintage vibe (cottage feel but updated with every modern need) to the beautiful backyard to the south Santa Cruz location (I guess it's called east, but it felt south, next to Capitola)! It's located in a quiet residential neighborhood but close to the fun Santa Cruz sights.
The cottage has 3 bedrooms, but one is converted from an office off the living area and the bed is small - ok for a child. The other two bedrooms each have a queen bed, and all share one bathroom, which is nice but not huge. A little laundry room was appreciated and came in handy!
We took our well-behaved spaniel and he was in heaven. He roamed and explored the pretty back yard, then could accompany us to the end of the street where a scenic eucalyptus-lined trail ran one way along the lagoon to the ocean and the other into town. Every morning we walked there to patronize some cute coffee houses. And if we wanted to go further (wine-tasting, visiting friends, golf, more beaches), the location was convenient to so many central coast destinations.
Amy has a great list of restaurants and activities to enjoy while in the area, and her place was ideal for our 5-night get-away vacation! Thank you!
Perfect home for a family getaway
Absolutely beautiful home, lovely outdoor garden, perfectly located for your family vacation. The hosts have thought of EVERY little detail to make your stay in their home very comfortable including towels, wet suits, nice hangers (and plenty of them in every closet), comfy throw blankets, access to laundry , etc etc. This place is an absolute gem!
Short walk to beautiful little beach. House was lovely. Especially loved the deck and garden. Amy was very pleasant and helpful.
Beautiful house and quiet neighborhood, great communication with the owner! Loved hearing the ocean from the backyard!
We had a great time in Santa Cruz while attending the US Open. This beautiful house accommodated our needs perfectly. Quiet, close to everything, LOVED the incredible yard in back where we spent the evenings drinking wine by the fire pit. The owner followed up with us to make sure we had no issues halfway through the stay. Would highly recommend this wonderful getaway.
So glad you enjoyed your stay, Debra! You guys were great guests and we would welcome you back anytime. Thanks for leaving things in good shape.
Wonderful dog friendly beach cottage
This property has the most amazing location. It is next to a lake and path that takes you to an incredible cozy dog friendly beach.
The back yard was also a highlight. We will be back with our dog soon.
