About Shannon Demma

Tony & Shannon Demma originally purchased this beautiful property as a speculative investment. After a long renovation process, they both fell in love with the property and could not part with it. Thus is became the East Cliff Beach Oasis Vacation Rental Home. We thoroughly enjoy visiting our home with our two children (they love the beach there) when it is available. We all live in Santa Cruz about one mile away from our beach home.

Shannon Demma purchased this house in 1999

Why Shannon Demma chose Santa Cruz

This property was in desperate need of help. It was in a beautiful location but the home and yard were very run-down. We love to fix up houses, so the attraction was immediate. The location speaks for itself - it is a great neighborhood and so close to the beach.

What makes this house unique

The views from the front porch are wonderful - you can see the ocean and also enjoy the many people biking, walking and jogging by. We have put a lot of thought and detail into our home - it is luxurious yet comfortable!

Paid attention to every detail

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying here with our grandchildren this year. We all love this house and it’s proximity to the beach. I especially love the beds, bedding, towels and how they stock the kitchen and bathrooms. It’s just like home! We will be back in a few months.

We were very impressed with the property. The house was very clean and smelled fresh. The location was perfect! We will definitely book this vacation rental again. The house had all the accommodations that we needed to make our stay easy and for us to feel comfortable.

Very nice custom home and great location

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay in as many years at this very well designed home. It was well stocked with everything needed in the way of dishes, and cookware, the king bed was quite comfortable and furnishings first class right down to the Wolf range and Sub Zero refrigerator. The location is convenient and near beaches. This is not a view properly, but this custom home itself is the view! We would stay here again. We also enjoyed visiting with Shirley, who is the own'er's mother who lives next door.

Great House, Great Location, Great Beaches.!!!.

  • 5 of 5

This house was absolutely fabulous. Very clean and elegant.

The location is even better. Walking distance to one of the best beaches in Santa Cruz County.

Our dogs loved running and playing with all the friendly dogs roaming the beach.

Our kids loved the waves all day, as well as roasting marshmallows at night over our beach fire in the sand.

It is very close to the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, (if that's what you are into), but also close to many local shops, coffee shops and cafe's. It felt like we were living amongst the locals, and not packed in with all the tourists down by the Boardwalk.

The seating area out front is nice, but the big downside to everything is that the house sits on a very busy street, and some people drive pretty fast, so you must keep an eye on any young children out there.

This was one very memorable vacation. We will surely be back.

Wonderful Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We were in California for a wedding in the redwoods. This lovely beach house was a great contrast in terms of scenery and ambiance. The house was very functional for two couples and a one year old. It was clean for the baby to crawl around safely. It was also well stocked with everything promised. And, the hot tub was a great extra.
