Why Yaffa Scranton chose Santa Cruz County

My husband and I were looking for a beach house for 4 years. We were looking for an upscale secluded place with great water view and an easy beach access within one hour from Silicon Valley. We finally found this house-it has all the above plus unique architecture.The house required updating which is a painful process but we did it successfully in 2006.

When we are in our beach house we feel like thousands of miles away from the hustle and bustle of the Valley and the beach is phenomenal- we walk for miles and the beach never ends. We found our dream house and we are happy to share it with you

Guestbook comments from the owner

Warnings about this house: you will not want to leave it after spending time here. We all had a fantastic time! We have rented this house five times. It has become a family tradition to have our annual family reunion at this beach house. It is a wonderful way to make lasting memories for all the kids.

This is truly a little piece of paradise. It is so quiet here. The house has all the amenities of home plus more. We felt right at home as soon as we walked in. The 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms are so convenient. The loft was a perfect place for our teen age nephew. The kitchen has all the comforts of home. A huge added bonus is the off street parking.

The beach is so close and it is a clean beach with not many people. The kids loved to boogie board in the waves. Collecting sand dollars was so much fun. It was a quest each day to find as many intact sand dollars as possible. The daily walks on the beach were different adventures each. Shore bird watching became a new hobby. The sunsets were beautiful... a photographers' canvas.

The two weeks passed by so quickly, yet at times it was as if time stood still. There is so much wildlife here that we were constantly entertained. This is a wonderful place to recuperate from the everyday life stresses. It is perfect for anyone, ranging from one couple to a whole family reunion.

A special "thank you" goes out to the homeowners of this warm and lovely home. Yaffa was so easy to work with and genuinely cared so much about us. It is her love and devotion that has transformed this house into a home away from home for all of us.

Great house, great owner, great time

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful and has an amazing view of the ocean. It's very spacious and has a very open common area great for groups or a big family to hang out in. Plus, the owner, Yaffa, is great and this house is really a great deal. OH, and we saw dolphins, seals, sea otters and a whale while we were there! What a magical place.

Great Beach Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

Rented this house for 7 adults and 2 children. The house is the second row of houses from the beach. However, it is located so the living room window faces the walk way to the beach, so you have a perfect view of the beach. It is only a short walk to the beach (100 feet) and about 10 steps to a wide flat expanse of beach. This made for easy going with beach equipment and 2 small children in tow. The house is a multistory with an open stairwell. We brought baby gates with us to keep the small ones safe. The house is well laid out and was very clean on arrival. The kitchen cooking area is compact, but there was plenty of space in the eating area to easily accommodate all of us. There were 2 large sofas in the living area. Plenty of nice towels were supplied for the bathrooms. The owner was very responsive and helpful with all my questions and made it easy to book. Would definitely book again.

Great Relaxation Spot!

  • 5 of 5

Came here to relax for my birthday and to find a little bit of calm in the busy lives of my children and grandchildren. This was a great place to do just that! Plenty of room for all of us and comfortable sleepng arrangements!

We wanted this time to chill and that is exactly what we did. The access to the beach was great and we all took full advantage. Would definately recommend this house and working with the owners!

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this house. Each bedroom has a bath, and all the baths and most floors are new. From the main room, you can see both the river and the ocean, and the beach access is literally right outside the front door. The beach is excellent, too--clean and expansive. Kitchen could use a new dishwasher and better knives and pots/pans, but these are small things that didn't effect the overall experience at all. 5 stars!
