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.

Clean, cozy, comfortable.

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 cottage home was lovely, comfortable, with a great location.

  • 5 of 5

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.

Great Getaway at the Beach!

  • 4 of 5

This is our 2nd stay at the Yacht Harbor Beach Cottage. The cottage is just the right size for us two and our 2 Labrador Retrievers! We can walk to the beach, the Yacht Harbor and beyond! The master bedroom is cozy with a very comfortable bed. The small kitchen has all the dishware, pots and pans you need to create meals, however this visit we chose to try many new cafes and restaurants. The backyard is so private and we love the outdoor warm shower, the hot tub, and the patio and fire pit. Easy parking with private parking permit too! No hassles trying to find parking spots! The house is clean and well maintained, although I would recommend a carpet shampoo on the living room carpet. Same time next year, for sure! The owners have made it very easy for you to enjoy 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.
