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. 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.

What a disappointment
For the money paid to stay here for a week, we were extremely disappointed. The master bedroom Capet is dirty and soiled. The master bedroom shower has a metallic shower caddy which is metallic and rusty. A drawer in the master bedroom has a knob missing. The shade in the the master bedroom does not have a drawstring. Deck windows dirty with bird poop and cobwebs almost in every corner. Master bedroom bedstead light did not work. Blender in main kitchen did not work. Hand held can opener did not work. Washing machine did not work...would not rinse or spin.Shredded BBQ cover. Toilet paper as thin as tissue paper! Rotting deck boards next to BBQ. Poor track lighting. Lack of TV in one bedroom. Lack of window shades although hardware is attached in kitchen dining area. Sliding bath doors do not lock for privacy. Unable to locate iron. Numerous calls to property manager remained unanswered. Non functioning fireplace. I understand this is a beach house, for rental purposes, however the owners need to address these issues. One good thing, beautiful view, but I can get that here in Southern California with just a hours drive.
Great House with a one of a kind view
Had an outstanding Easter weekend with friends and family. The house was spacious and allowed everyone to spread and enjoy their time. The weather was perfect. But what makes the house great is the sound of the ocean breaking below and the amazing view.
I look forward to a return trip to Captain’s Quarters.
Doug - thanks so much for your nice feedback and we are so happy to learn that you enjoyed your time at the Captain's Quarters. We will look forward to hosting your during your next trip to Santa Cruz!
The property was amazing!
This property is fabulous, loved the view and location. The house itself is very spacious and in a quiet neighborhood. We will definitely stay here again in the future!!
Thank you so much for providing some feedback for our future guests. We look forward to hosting you again during your next trip to Santa Cruz!
We have stayed at this property every summer for almost a decade. This is not a fancy beach house...the bathrooms and kitchen are funky and outdated. It is comfortable, though, and dogs are allowed. We come back every year for the location and the huge porch! We spend every evening watching the sunset in the enclosed glass area. It keeps us warm even when the weather is chilly or windy. The location is amazing . The house is on the beach...it doesn’t get any more “oceanfront “ than this. Although the house is outdated and there is a second kitchen that is fairly useless considering there are only 3 bedrooms (so you could never have enough people sleep there to make use of a second kitchen), the property managers are awesome and very responsive. They always do everything they can to make our stay the best it can be!
Lisa - thank you for your nice comments and your loyalty. We have SO appreciated your business over the years and look forward to hosting your next stay.
Location! Location! Location!
This house (and star rating) is all about the location and views of the beautiful Pacific ocean. Even though we had rainy weather we truly enjoyed simply looking out the floor to ceiling windows to the sky and sea. We were disappointed the fireplace does not work , as we brought logs knowing it would be stormy. While we were comfortable enough, it would be even better if the house had a few more simply updates and better maintenance. The list of repairs needed I will send directly to the managers. The layout works well for two families or in our case, adult children. We did not use the 2nd smaller kitchen as all of the supplies seemed to be in the main kitchen. We enjoyed walks on the beach, Mystery Spot and the Monterrey Aquarium.
Thank you for your feedback, Vicki! The fireplace was damaged in the earthquake of '89 and has not been usable since, unfortunately! However, fires are allowed in the rings provided at Twin Lakes Beach just minutes from the beach house (not quite as cozy as a living room, I realize!). Thanks for pointing out those maintenance issues and we have had them addressed. We hope you will come again!
A sublime experience
This home has been lovingly restored and sits on a ridge above the ocean with perfect views out of every single window, of which there are many so that you have the sense that your outside even when you're in. The crashing waves set a mood of relaxation and lull you into a level of comfort that is so very welcoming. Clean rooms, gorgeous comfy beds and bedding and freshly laundered towels folded neatly at the end of every bed are just a few of the personal touches that make this place so wonderful. The staff that manages the property are top notch and thought of every possible need we could have so that it was addressed even before we knew we required it. Great restaurants and favorite spots nearby to explore and dive into the Santa Cruz culture. Just a perfect all around experience and one we hope to partake in again some time.
