This welcoming beach home, which sleeps 6, has two bedrooms both with en suite bathrooms, one with a king size bed and the other a queen size bed. The couches in the living area are great for the kids. Each bathroom consists of a shower, toilet and sink. The comfortable living room, has a unique gas fireplace. A newly renovated kitchen, inviting dining room, laundry, and private back deck with gas BBQ, are all set up for your enjoyment. There is also a sunny upstairs deck for lounging and relaxing. Linens are included.

Walk a short block to the top of our street to popular cafes, restaurants,and a Farmers Market on Sundays.

A walk along the sand brings you to the Yacht Harbor with all its amenities, restaurants and nightclubs. Wednesday night sailing, Thursday night luaus and surfboard, kayak and stand-up paddle board rentals are all an easy stroll down the beach.

The Santa Cruz Boardwalk is a 5 minute drive away.

Four local Golf courses are within a 5 mile radius. The Monterey Bay golf courses and Aquarium are a 45 minute drive away.

About Elaine

I have traveled around the world and I am so happy to have settled here in Santa Cruz. I am fortunate to have my family nearby and we all enjoy our beautiful little town. I love my home and my garden. I live here part of the year and enjoy sharing it with the lovely people who come to stay.

Elaine purchased this house in 1991

Loved the beach retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the beach retreat. It was comfortable, well equipped, and clean. It's just a block from a beautiful beach. The back deck is pretty and private, and we enjoyed the top deck for reading or sunbathing as well. Would definitely stay there again. So much better than a hotel!

Everything as advertised. Great little house for two couples or family. One block to beach, close to harbor and boardwalk. Very peaceful and well furnished. Elaine very easy to work with. Will stay here again.

Our house is on a quiet street but it is near so many great beaches and activities. The beach at the end of the street is one of the most popular in the county as it has lifeguards, fire pits and surfboard and stand up paddle board rentals all within walking distance. There are restaurants and nightclubs that you can walk to. The Crow's Nest down the beach, has a Thursday night luau during the summer months. Make sure you take the free water taxi across the harbor to Aldo's for an unparalleled view during breakfast and try their fugasa french toast and the best Bloody Marys...to die for!
