Townhome, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths + sleeper sofa (Sleeps up to 6)
We have owned our beach house since 1972 after searching numerous vacation spots throughout California. We decided on Santa Cruz area largely because its proximity to Silicon Valley and the ease in getting there to start the weekend or vacation without a long, tedious drive. Also for travelers, it's only an hour's drive from San Jose or Monterey airports. It is only 5 minutes off scenic Highway 1 which runs along the Pacific Ocean from Mexico to Oregon.
Christina purchased this Townhome in 1972
Why Christina chose La Selva Beach
We purchased this property to get many of the features we experienced in Hawaii, without the expense and hassle of long travel. We also wanted to be close to Carmel and Monterey. It's easy for us to manage, as well as vacation there, as we live in the redwoods 20 minutes away. Many of our guests have been renting from us for 10-20 years. A few have even decided to purchase there, and are now our neighbors! Near state parks, but very non-congested.
What makes this Townhome unique
Our family-friendly home offers the unique experience of staying ON a natural sandy beach. Amazing views, the ability to walk out of your home and onto the beach (one minute) for a walk or run. Try your skills at surfing, boogie/skim boarding or surf-fishing. Or spread your blanket on the beach right in front of your home and watch sun light up the waves as they crash at your feet. In the evenings you can build a beach fire and share the day's adventures with your family and friends. If you prefer to lounge on the deck, you can watch the birds, whales, sea lions, otters, etc., from the comfort of your own private space. Linger a moment to watch the sunset, breathe the fresh ocean air, let the waves mesmerize you. Many families revisit our home each year to reconnect with themselves and their families. A rare experience indeed!

The floors were quite dirty our feet were black from walking barefoot. We love he place and had a great time but felt it could use a good cleaning.
What a great place to stay!! The home was lovely and decorated
so cute. The view could not be get any better!!
Great week at the Beach
Nice and bright property. Well equipped but the beach chairs could use some updating. Great beach front. A little off the beaten path but a short drive from everything. Would stay there again if the opportunity arises.
Beach Condo Paradise
We’ve stayed in several condos at La Selva Beach for over 40 years and the condo at 432 surpassed all our expectations. The owner, Christina, is a jewel.
Thanks for sharing your experience with us Martha! We are so thrilled to hear your stay at the beach house exceeded your expectations.
Lovely place on the beach
We had such an amazing time at this beach house and will definitely come back again!
Thank you for sharing your Summer with us, Marilyn. Definitely keep us in mind for your next getaway :)
We had a great time and no one wanted to come home.So close to the beach was awesome. The kids could go down and we could watch them from our balcony. Only happened twice.We loved going down to the beach with them.Our oldest grandson learned how to skin board.And he loved boogie boarding. Our youngest grandson took his metal detector down and looked for coins, I think the best time was had by our frenchie. He loved the water and digging in this sand. My daughter-in-law and son also enjoyed themselves. So relaxing.our townhouse was decorated beach style and was so nice. The grandkids want to go back next year and stay a week.
Thank you for sharing your experience with us Nancy. It sounds like you and your family had the ultimate vacation along the coast! We are happy you had such a memorable experience staying at the beach house.
