This charming cottage, perfect for a romantic getaway or a family vacation, is located on a quiet cul-de-sac just steps from the 26th Avenue and Moran Lake Beaches. Beachbreak Bungalow is a wonderful hideaway for your vacation in Santa Cruz.
Moran Lake Beach & 26th Avenue Beach are a two minute walk down a serene nature trail, along a beautiful grove of Eucalyptus Trees -- the perfect spot for those seeking solace on a huge boulder, pelicans and crashing waves, family-time building sandcastles, swimming in the surf, or a beautiful sunset stroll.
The home has 3 bedrooms and 1 bath, with a queen sized bed in the master, a double bed in the 2nd bedroom, and a double futon bed in the third bedroom. The bathroom has a shower with a full bathtub. There is also an outdoor shower with hot water - great for rinsing off after a trip to the beach, and the kids always love it!
The large, beautifully lanscaped backyard is wonderful for a relaxing family BBQ where you can enjoy the company of family and friends or just relax and listen to the sound of the waves. The house is immaculately clean and well furnished with everything you need when you want to get away from it all.
Downtown Capitola with it's lively beachside restaurants and shopping is a short 5 minute drive as is the Santa Cruz Harbor with it's many boating activites. This the perfect central location for your trip to Santa Cruz!

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.
Owner purchased this House in 2003
Why Owner chose 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 somehow it magically worked out and become ours. It brings us much joy and pleasure and we are happy to share it with our guests.
Sports & Adventure Activities
Great beach cottage
Cozy, clean, great location. Dog friendly and so close to a dog friendly beach, you can't beat it.
Backyard is very large and has several sitting areas, this was nice for my teenagers to hang out when not at the beach but didn't want to be with the adults.
Super cute house for family vacation
The house is nicely decorated with comfortable beds and linens, plenty of good quality towels. Kitchen is pretty well equipped. Backyard and grill excellent. Only one small bathroom, but for vacation it didn't matter. The area is great for walking, very accessible to everything. Amy is an awesome host. She has left a notebook with heaps of info and guidance for a great stay. Will definitely return.
Love it here!
I've been here 4 years in a row! It's always a great time for the whole family. perfect location!
We appreciate you coming year after year, Jamie. It's always a pleasure to have you all!
Perfect family base
The location can't be beat. Quick easy walk to the beach, plenty of room for family to spread out on the deck out the French doors and homey perks like laundry, fire pit, functional kitchen and outdoor shower. Rooms were good size and everyone enjoyed having their private space. The backyard was perfect for the dogs and just the right size. Hosts were wonderful and communicated promptly. We all remarked on the quiet neighborhood without traffic. Would love to return.
You all were a great group! We would love to have you back anytime :-)
Great Santa Cruz Cottage
Clean, well loved, and charming house made our vacation a pleasure. Located just a short stroll from a wide open beach. The walk to the beach is an experience as it winds through a grove of towering Eucalyptus trees next to an ocean lagoon.
The back yard was perfect for our gathering with a deck and mature landscaping. The owners are easy to work with, and pet friendly. Our pups loved roaming the backyard, and walking every day to the beach with us. What a great way to spend the 4th of July!
Peaceful Retreat by the Beach
The bungalow is wonderfully located on a quiet street just a few steps from Moran Lake lagoon and a eucalyptus-lined walking path which borders the lagoon and leads down to the beach. It was great to have the option to just walk to the beach and leave the car in the driveway when we felt like it. The house was comfortable, with a laid back atmosphere; the kitchen was very well furnished, and the spacious back yard was perfect for our son's Golden Retriever mix. We also enjoyed barbecuing on the deck and adding fresh tomatoes from the garden to our salad.
The location is peaceful and relaxing but also close to many great restaurants (including Cafe Cruz for breakfast!), the Santa Cruz Yacht Harbor (we enjoyed a sunset cruise around the bay with O'Neil's) and Capitola. It was perfect for our group of four adults. Highly Recommended!
