Clean, cozy, comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

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.

Great location and ambiance

  • 4 of 5

There were 4 of us long time girlfriends staying at the cottage. We had a great time. So close to the North Harbor and the beach. We recommend the Crow's Nest for any meal which is in walking distance. There is also a little store around the corner which could have anything you may have forgotten. The cottage was comfortable for the 4 of us. Although we did not have time to use the hot tub. We checked it out and it was crystal clear clean and a nice temperature. It was comfortable sitting outside in the back yard and very private.

Small but well stocked with essentials . Two outdoor lounging areas and hot tub are very nice. Location to beach and walking neighborhoods also very nice.

Charming!

  • 4 of 5

This place is very cute, inviting, cozy, and clean. The backyard is quite spacious and absolutely beautiful with comfortable rattan furniture. The couch in the living room is also very soft and comfortable. Within walking distance to the Crow's Nest and the harbor. As others mentioned, the house can get a bit stuffy but there are lots of screened doors and we felt extremely safe there. A couple of suggestions - the beds in the guest room are squeaky, not sure why but they are a bit loud when someone turns. Also, could use a lamp next to the master bed, and a new non stick fry pan. Having brochures of what to do in the area was a nice touch, as were all of the condiments in the kitchen. The owner was very easy to work with and accommodating of all of our questions. I would definitely recommend this place and would stay here again.

Wonderful Cottage

  • 4 of 5

Really enjoyed the Yacht Harbor Beach Cottage. Great location, nice neighborhood and it's a lovely cottage. We made time to enjoy the beautiful private backyard. The cottage felt inviting and relaxing. It was a great place to come home to after sightseeing. We loved Santa Cruz and the Yacht Harbor Beach Cottage.

Great beach access in a great neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

This house was great - just as advertised! We loved being in a beautiful beachside neighborhood. Our family went on many walks with the dog and enjoyed looking at lots of nice, creative houses. It's a short walk to Johnny's Restaurant on the harbor, and the Harbor Cafe on 7th street (BEST breakfast in town!). It's also a short walk to what my kids called "our beach". It's a dog friendly beach that provided hours of entertainment for my family. I didn't realize we'd be so close!

The house is small, but that was kinda fun. It'd be tough to have any more than four people stay there. The only "gripe" is that we had to put blankets on the couch and the beds just in case our young dog jumped up on the nice white furniture before we had a chance to wipe her paws. That worked well for us as we found a few big blankets laying around. (Am I griping about having furniture too nice and white??)

The backyard has a nice outdoor shower that my kids used everyday. The hot tub was used everyday as well. We met and befriended some neighbors and felt right at home. It was great living the dream of being a Santa Cruzer - if only for a few days. :)
