About Jean

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.

The large kitchen where our family and friend are able to create great feasts next to the fireplace.

We hope you do, too !

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 ever watch the sails boats go by 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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family had a great stay at your "roomy" house. Great view, great access to the beach. Good lay-out for all ages. We'll be back again. - from Southern California (Thousand Oaks), Belmont & Menlo Park

This beach house is fantastic

  • 5 of 5

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.

GREAT LOCATION AND VIEWS

  • 5 of 5

The 26th avenue house was a great place for our two families to gather. It was so close to Pleasure Point that it made it easy to drop the kids off and come back or ride bikes to view the waves. We loved listening to the ocean and having a view of the waves from almost all of the upstairs rooms. The kitchen was spacious and the downstairs was a perfect kids get away. The house is a stones throw to the beach which was great to walk to in early am and evenings. Can't say enough about this place. Plenty of room for two families too.

Great family house

  • 5 of 5

The 26th Avenue beach house is truly a wonderful place for family or friend gatherings. Like other reviewers have said, there is ample space for everyone to spread out. We have little ones and they were able to nap during the day while others could hang out or come and go without disturbing them. The views are gorgeous! I didn't mind doing dishes because the kitchen window looks right over the ocean. The house has everything you could need and more. Everything is very nicely organized and easy to find. Very clean, too. Comfy beds and the area is nice and quiet at night. Easy to go on lots of nice walks around the neighborhood. Pleasure Point is magical. I was a little bummed that the 26th Avenue beach was non-existent for most of the day, but I guess that is to be expected for the end of winter and rising tides. Make you sure you check the local tide charts to see when a good time to hang on the beach is.

Overall, we had a great time at this beach house and would recommend it to other large groups. Beautiful garden, great views, big space, lots of beach stuff, and a fantastic kitchen full of supplies. Thank you for letting us use it!

Wonderful weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

Jean was the perfect host! I had a bad experience with a different home and when I needed a new place last minute she did everything she could to make things work. The house was beautiful and had everything we could possibly need. Brought a group and the weather couldn't have been better! So pleased with this stay and would most definitely rent here again!

Great place, great location, great times

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Jean's place. The beds were comfy, the hot tub was relaxing, and the view was spectacular. We didn't get to the ping pong table but enjoyed some of the board games provided. Getting into and checking out of the house were easy and well communicated.
