About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 1 and 1/2 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

Quiet, comfortable family home in beautiful La Selva Beach. Play on the beach, walk on the bluff, play games or just relax and read a book by the fire. Our home is just a short walk through a private gate to a broad sandy beach. The beach joins Manresa State Beach to the south and is ideal for long walks, surfing, skim boarding, frisbee, and playing in the sand.

After a day at the beach, enjoy a barbecue on the deck or cook in our small, but fully stocked kitchen. The open family room has a wood stove and plenty of wood for fires, lots of games and a variety of books to read during your stay.

There is a sweet little playground down the single lane road, with a basketball court, swings and play equipment. Around the corner, the bluff offers a panoramic view of all of Monterey Bay.

The house has three bedrooms -- one with a queen bed, one with a double bed, and the third small bedroom most suitable for kids, with a small built in twin bed and a futon on the floor. The furnishings are simple and casual.

The little town of La Selva Beach is just twelve miles south of Santa Cruz, convenient to several state parks, the University of California at Santa Cruz and the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. Monterey, and its wonderful Aquarium, is just a 40 minute drive to the south.

Beautiful location, comfortable place

  • 4 of 5

This was my first experience with VRBO (or any AirBNB-type thing) and it went nearly flawlessly.

Sue made things very easy for us with transactions, handover, and locations.

The house was clean as a whistle. It's not a modern designer executive home, but rather felt kind of like a cabin, but spacious, and with all of the bells and whistles. There was plenty of space, plenty of light, a new washer & dryer that we were glad to have the use of. Gas stove, good-tasting tap water. A beautiful deck and back yard. Lots of trees every place and the air smelled fresh and camplike. Could easily be a party house. There was a good & spacious fridge and even staples and sundries available. There was a private entrance to the miles of lovely beach just a couple blocks down the hill. Games and books and wifi - a perfect summer place. Everyone we met (and their dogs) was friendly.

The beds were a little bouncy & no pets allowed, but otherwise, it was pretty ideal.

I will do this again, for sure.

Wonderful stay!!

  • 5 of 5

Sue is an outstanding hostess. Although we weren't able to meet her in person, she was SO nice (and responsive). I can't say enough, she is such a warm and kind person. Everything was seamless, and we couldn't have been more pleased. Thank you!!

Homey and relaxing beach getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay, completely comfortable place in a quiet community. It's a great spot for kids, nice outdoor area, multiple zones for hanging out, games and toys and playground and beach a short walk. From beginning to end, felt like staying at a friend's house.

Great family getaway spot

  • 4 of 5

We booked for a last minute family trip over Memorial Day weekend and the owners and the property were fantastic. The rental process was fast and easy. You also have private beach access which was awesome. Only wish they allowed dogs. We will be back.

Just as cozy as Grandma's house!

  • 4 of 5

We absolutely LOVE this little beach house gem! I hesitate to rave too much about it because we want to keep it for ourselves! Being at the La Selva Beach community is like stepping back in time--sweet, safe, and quiet. Our kids love going there because they can explore and have fun without us constantly having to worry about them getting hit by a car. The house is not posh, so if you're looking for luxury, this is not the place, but it is VERY comfortable and stocked with everything from wine glasses to sweet little silver trays. We had old friends over for dinner and they remarked that they felt like they were in our home. We are so grateful to Sue and her family for sharing this little jewel by the sea with us!

Charming house, great location

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect house for a family. Plenty of space with a fenced yard. Beautiful private beach where dolphins were swimming by.

The owner was very helpful. We were a last minute reservation and she was quick to communicate with me.

This is my new favorite place for a long weekend.
