Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6 to 8)

The Captains Quarters boasts one of the most spectacular oceanfront views in all of Santa Cruz! This is beachfront living at its best, with wrap around decks facing the Pacific - and dramatic Monterey Bay views from nearly every room in the house.

Located at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac and snugly situated overlooking one of Santa Cruz's best beaches, Twin Lakes Beach, this home is ideally situated to take in the unobstructed 260 degree ocean views from nearly every room. The Captain's Quarters is sure to be your oceanfront vacation destination!

This single family one story home has 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, and two full kitchens for two or more families to enjoy. You will overlook the Monterey Bay Marine Sanctuary from the game room featuring vaulted wood beam ceilings, a full size pool table, and walls of oversized picture windows. Generously spacious - with 160 feet of ocean frontage and enough parking for 4 cars, the Captain's Quarters can easily accommodate 3 generations in comfort. Direct beach access is via stairway just a few steps from the deck.

The Captain's Quarters is an excellent central location in Santa Cruz; located midway between the Santa Cruz Boardwalk and Capitola, and just a short walk to the Santa Cruz Yacht Harbor. Buy your fresh fish locally from the Stagnero's boat on the Wharf, and enjoy preparing a meal in either fully equipped kitchen, or just relax and stop in at one the many restaurants and nearby nightlife that abound. Later, roast marsh mellows and stoke bonfires in the fire rings provided on the beach.

You will enjoy breathtaking sunrises from the master suite. At night, the lights of Monterey, Moss Landing and Pacific Grove glitter across the Bay. The Captain's Quarters provides the perfect opportunity to reconnect with your loved ones, or for that long awaited getaway - feel the stress melt away as you breathe in the ocean air, listen to sounds of the Bay and appreciate what Mother Nature intended.

**7 NIGHT MINIMUM FOR 4TH OF JULY WEEK**

Guestbook comments from the manager

We stayed at the Captain's Quarters for a week in June 2013, and enjoyed our visit tremendously. The views throughout the house are spectacular. The youngsters in our party delighted in being able to got right down the steps to the beach. The house, while 1970s quirky, was quite comfortable and very well equipped with everything from beach towels and sand buckets to plenty of serving ware and flatware, cooking utensils and everything needed for a home away from home. Liz of Beachnest was very helpful and responsive to our questions and concerns. We will be staying there again.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Came to Santa Cruz for a short family vacation over Memorial Day Weekend. We stayed at Captain's Quarters and loved it. The view from the house is awesome and the location is unbeatable. The house has a great beach feel to it and fit our family perfectly. We spent our entire 3 days either at the beach or on the deck of the house watching the ocean. We are definitely coming back to Captain's Quarters.

Moms 90th birthday trip to the sea

  • 4 of 5

The house is in a perfect location. Hear and see and smell the ocean. The cleaning of the house prior to our arrival was not done, beds not made for us, sand on kitchen floor. House itself was fine, just not prepared properly before our arrival.

The view is beautiful

  • 4 of 5

Thanks for letting us stay at your unit. It looks like the owners put a lot of work into the deck and the sliding doors. For this type of rental though I was surprised to see exposed wiring underneath the stove to the right in the small kitchen, garbage bags not provided, need more pillows, blinds broken in the back bedrooms, garbage disposal broken in small kitchen, and the shower head in the master bedroom is very old. For these type of prices a new shower head doesn't cost very much. Thank you again.

Spectacular views and great beach access

  • 4 of 5

We spent five nights here for Thanksgiving. We were overwhelmed by the views from both inside the house and from the deck. The beach access was easy and great for dog owners/lovers. Kitchens and bathrooms are in need of some updating, but that's easy to overlook because of the location of the property and the other common areas/bedrooms. I highly recommend for people who are ready to spend time enjoying the beauty of Santa Cruz beaches and who want to see the most spectacular sunsets imaginable.

Unbelievable Views From Every Room

  • 5 of 5

The moment we walked into the house, our family was transfixed by the 200 degree views the 12 expansive windows showed off like a post card. We could see the boats coming in and out of the harbor, the boardwalk northwards and the Moss Landing towers southward. Monterey came in across the bay when perfect weather allowed. The amazingly easy beach access allowed the adults to watch the kids body board and the dog friendly beach made it fun for the entire family. The days with clouds allowed the sun to light up spots on the ocean for an apocalyptic feel. The one rainy day still allowed us amazing views and water sports. We saw no less than 10 otters and 2 dolphins. They swam about 20 feet from us at times.

Restaurants and surf shops are near by, but we all wanted to eat in and hang out on the wind shielded deck.

We will remember this vacation for many years.
