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.

Sweet little cottage a couple blocks from the beach

  • 5 of 5

Small, but we'll organized cottage, with hottub and great yard. Ideal for a family with a dog who want to experience real Santa Cruz. My wife and I and our dachshund loved it here.

Our Dog Loved It (and so did we!)

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely LOVED this place! So quaint, in a great neighborhood and a very short walk to the beach. Our dog enjoyed looking out the screen doors immensely. Our teen and tween loved their room with a TV and direct door with access to the hot tub. Us parents loved lounging with a book and a glass of wine in the backyard. Walked to the beach every night to watch the sunset. Even made our Thanksgiving dinner in the galley kitchen! A truly great place to stay

Great Location, Beautiful Surroundings

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful home with a designers touch. Our two children stayed here with us and I was glad to expose them to such beauty and art. We just moved things out of the way that we thought had the chance of breaking. The kitchen was great and the washer and dryer were helpful. The backyard and front courtyard opened the home to the outdoors. My husband and kids were able to walk to the amusement part. It is a great place for families, but also for a couple seeking a romantic getaway. I went on some nice walks right down to the beach. Thank you!!

Serenity by the Sea!

  • 5 of 5

What a gem! I just spent 5 nights at this cozy, charming beach cottage. Could not have been more perfect! I live in Santa Cruz but needed a dog friendly place to rent while some work was being done on my home. This cottage has the perfect balance of being so tastefully, elegantly decorated while still being so very comfortable. It was immaculate, had all the comforts of home and was a short lovely stroll to the beach and restaurants. The backyard is divine! So private with lovey brick patio, grass area, dining, fire pit, hot tub. So special you don't won't to leave. Really peaceful - my dogs were safe and secure from the moment I walked in - we could all relax. The front is gated and also so safe and pretty. Nice spot to have coffee. Everything you need is in the kitchen. I found it very easy to cook - small but all right at your finger tips. Everything was top quality. With or without dogs a great spot to enjoy Santa Cruz. The owner and staff were very responsive and nice to deal with. Loved it!
