I am a 4th generation California. My grandparents owned a home in Santa Cruz, which I used to visit frequently. I travel the world picking up ideas as I go, to make your stay the best possible. I love my home by the bay, and would like to share it with you.
Jean purchased this House in 2007
Why Jean chose Santa Cruz
We like to think of it as our villa by the sea. It's spacious enough to house our 3 grown children, and a few friends with their younger children. Being by the beach, the views, the reverse floor plan that allows for great sunset views and entertaining. Create great feasts in the large kitchen, watch the ocean while you cook, then sit down and eat by the one of the two fireplace in the dining areas or on the deck during the sunset.
What makes this House unique
Great views and easy safe access , (no climbing over rocks), to one of the best beaches in the county. Spacious house with an amazing floor plan. Lots of places to chill out an take a nap or read that captivating book. Two fireplaces to cozy up to or play one of our many board games in front of. Well stocked kitchen, with double ovens, lots of counter space for a chefs cook-off and a gas grill close by on the deck over looking the ocean. You can even watch the sails boats go by and whales spout as you prep for a family feast. A great deck to enjoy your morning coffee and watch the natural sea life on the bay or watch the surfers getting ready to go down to catch a wave. Or, in the late afternoon, sipping your favorite beverage with friends as you watch the amazing sunsets over the Monterey bay and perhaps catch sight of whales, dolphins or a couple of seals. There are lots for bicycles in the garage to choose from, so make sure to bring your helmets. We also have an assortment of boogie boards, wet suits, skim boards, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, sand toys, volley ball and badminton sets, and a tennis table.

This beach house is fantastic
Wow what a wonderful experience staying at the 26th avenue beach house has been. We enjoyed a week long family reunion in concert with my sister's wedding and it has been as warm and wonderful as one could imagine. The home is large and comfortable with a great fully equipped kitchen, nice dining area, big great room with fireplace and plenty of bedrooms and nooks as well. The views are spectacular- your practically right over the beach and the the Monterey Bay is just so picturesque. Really lovely experience this beach house is. I'd definitely recommend this beach house to any family or group who wants to have one of those remember forever experiences.
All the descriptions advertised are accurate. We have nothing to complain about at all. The owner was very helpful- she expressed that she wanted everything to be right for our special occasion and I thought that was very sweet.
Everything was wonderful. The beach was very nice. The house has everything you need to make a vacation perfect. Great deck and views. Plenty of room for everybody. We had 11 people and there was more than enough space in the house. Street parking not really an option with surfers but there was plenty of space st the home. We had five vehicles and it was not a problem parking behind a secure fence. Would love to go back again and stay longer!!
Everyone who stayed with us loved the home and its location.
Great house for family gathering!
Jean's house was perfect for our mini family reunion in early April. The view was amazing, the beds were comfortable, and the house had everything we needed to relax and enjoy our time together. We would definitely stay again!
Spacious beach rental
The listing says it sleeps 10 and there are more than enough beds for everyone to have space.
This is our second time staying here and both times have been wonderful. The kitchen is fully stocked. The garage has pingpong, bikes, and other outdoor equipment. There are also movies and board games.
The hot tub was warm and a great plus. There are spectacular ocean views from the house.
The checkout process is simple.
Wonderful Santa Cruz beach home, great for extended families
I apologize for the late note. Your beach house is as advertised. We had a great time and everyone loved your place! My mother-in-law asked me three times to rent the house again next year while we were packing up to leave. Thank you so much.
Kind regards, Jeff
