I think the best vacations are the ones you don't want to stop. I could stay here forever. It's exquisite. Thank you for the experience.
My wife and I and another couple shared this house for a short getaway in Santa Cruz recently. It was the perfect place for us to stay. The house is very inviting with its beautiful landscaping, hot tub and comfortable beds. It is about a five minute drive to the Boardwalk and a short cab ride to the downtown area where there are great restaurants and nightlife. All in all I would definitely recommend this house and would stay there again on my next trip to Santa Cruz.
The location is great, near to my son's house, beaches & restaurants. It's very charming and quiet.
We know this neighborhood well from staying with friends in the Twin Lakes/Harbor area. There is a nice mix of rentals and owner-occupied homes in this area. We found it relatively quiet even though it's just off a fairly busy street (7th Ave). The cottage itself feels very secluded - fenced on all sides and high shrubs. We didn't feel unsafe here, owners do provide locking gates and a parking spot directly in front of the home on the street.
The home itself is cozy but well supplied for two persons. More than two would be a little tight. We used the galley kitchen and found it perfectly fine and probably more well set up than most rentals we've experienced. There is a BBQ in the back we didn't use but looked fine. The two bedrooms were cozy, beds were comfortable.
If the weather was warmer we would have used the yard more. There's a nice front patio area and the back yard is surprisingly spacious. It is all well-maintained. The hot tub was perfect and nice to have the outdoor shower.
The location is perfect for those who prefer short walks to breakfast, beach and a longer walk to Seabright neighborhood (Tramonti's for authentic Italian pizzas and homemade specialties). The nearby Harbor/7th Ave beach is a nice alternative from the more touristy Boardwalk area, it feels more like a locals beach. It's a 5-10 walk from the house. We enjoyed jogging/walking on the beach, going for walks up the Harbor trail and driving 10-15m to Pacific Ave shopping area downtown (Laili's restaurant recommended for middle eastern fare) or to park and watch the surfers along West Cliff Drive.
We'd recommend this cottage as it hits all the points many would appreciate and expect and in a fun and walk-friendly Santa Cruz neighborhood.
Charming, vintage cottage in good location for beach access, walking neighborhood, quiet....we were here in late Oct. LONG walk to downtown but we wanted it that way. LOVELY yard, hot tub. My dog was welcome! Needs a better tv, if that matters. WOULD return.
This cottage was perfect for us. The back yard was private and perfectly secure for our dog. We enjoyed our walks to the beach and nearby arroyo canyon. During our entire stay, it poured down rain and the cottage was warm, comforting and relaxing....the hot tub was a HUGE plus! I do think that confirmation and instructions for the house should be given to a renter well in advance (not the day before?) This gives the renter a sense of security that there has been confirmation of their stay, and eases some anxiety that the large some of money that they have given didn't end up in a mishap. Jason was responsive to my request to have earlier confirmation and instruction sent, so no big deal, just a suggestion to the owners. My thanks for letting us stay in your sweet home and letting my adorable dog vacation with us!
The Cottage had a beautiful yard with a soothing hot tub that we utilized. The Cottage was clean and the kitchen, bathroom, and other rooms were well-equipped and everything was in working order. The owner provided very helpful tips and advice. We easily walked to restaurants, beaches, and a convenience store. The cottage space was adequate for our party of four. We recommend this property.
Within 5 minutes of the cottage you will find the Beach Boardwalk Amusement Park ( 0.9 Mile Walk ), Downtown Santa Cruz with great shopping, world class surfing, plenty of great restaurants and more! The California Redwoods are approx. 20 mins.to the north with San Francisco another 40 mins. from there....lastly, the infamous Big Sur, Monterey and Carmel are approx 45 min. to the south. As you can see there is plenty to do and see!!
Other Activities: Shopping, Kayaking, Shelling, Wildlife Viewing, Rock Climbing, Boating, Health/Beauty Spa
