Overview

Opal Cliffs House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

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!

About The Owner

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.

The Owner purchased this house in 2003

Why The 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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It was a lovely beach home – and after seeing the photos of the home and interior on your website, it was all very familiar. I love what you have done to restore the home – the hardwood floors, color on the walls, cute drawer pulls, etc. It was also very CLEAN and the master bed was wonderfully comfortable!I would love to return. We’ll keep in it mind for the future. The area is lovely, too – very quiet and a quick walk to the beach. I love the nature walk along the river, too.Everything was provided – beach towels, beach chairs, games, kitchenware - even a welcoming bottle of wine – THANK YOU!

Peaceful Retreat by the Beach

  • 5 of 5

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!

Sooooo relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

Sweet house near the beach in a quiet neighborhood with a great enclosed yard (our dog loved it). Very relaxing and peaceful. More like staying in a home than in a rental. Highly recommend it!

Just what we were hoping it would be

  • 5 of 5

Our week in the bungalow was a wonderful relaxing vacation for our family of four adults. The backyard was perfect for our two small dogs and the deck was ideal for morning coffee, afternoon lounging and nighttime star gazing. We slept well on the comfortable beds and cooked dinners on the grill. Moran Beach is only a 5 minute walk along a small lake just down the block and several State park beaches are within 15 minutes drive. Each day we walked along a different beach and were so happy to come home to the bungalow knowing how simple and comfortable it was. We hope to return again soon!

Beachbreak Bungalow

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this charming beach house. It had all the immenities needed for an enjoyable stay at the beach. The outside shower was a plus and we all enjoyed barbecuing in the backyard, which was also a great place for our dogs to romp in the evenings. I would recommend this cute house and plan on returning soon.

Excellent experience and can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

We had a girl’s weekend at Beachreak Bungalow and had an amazing experience! The house met all of our needs and then some. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed to make our meals from breakfast to steak milanese, the beds were comfy, the neighborhood was adorable and if you walked south to the little lake there was a shortcut to the beach making it only a few minutes’ walk away. And they even thought of all the little details, such as books in the front bedroom for reading, games in the family room to play, beach umbrella to take for your day in the sun at the beach etc. The backyard was beautiful and we loved lounging there. All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and can’t wait to come back next year!

Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful house is truly a home away from home. My family and friends, human and furry, and I have been returning for the past eight years. It has everything you need and is so close to anything you would want to do in Santa Cruz and Capitola. I can't recommend it enough.
