The perfect cottage by the perfect sea

  • 5 of 5

This was not my first time in this cottage. My extended family has rented it before; it's our favorite getaway spot. One door down from the exquisite Seabright beach, the cottage is a home. The kitchen is spacious and perfect for family meals. You can walk to the boardwalk, and you fall asleep at night to the sounds of the waves, the sea lions, and the roller coaster screamers faintly in the distance. It's really a slice of heaven and I can't wait to come back. We fly all the way across the country just to stay here. We'll never take any other vacation.

Beautiful, comfortable, great place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed here over July 4 weekend. It was a perfect place to stay. The house is very comfortable and well-equipped. The location is superb -- 2 houses from the ocean, 1 block walk to a lovely beach, and short walk to the famous Santa Cruz boardwalk. The yard is lovely, with outdoor seating to enjoy the great weather. Thank you Laurie for such a wonderful place to enjoy a relaxing time together.

Summer Celebration

  • 5 of 5

Best Santa Cruz getaway! We are a family of 3 and brought along my daughter’s bff for a summer celebration in Santa Cruz. Everything about this house is perfect: location, condition and owners. We spent hours enjoying the surf and sun at Seabright beach, walked to the Boardwalk, and even fit in a fishing trip. We walked to the nearby restaurants each night for dinner and enjoyed live music while we dined. The house is immaculate, the kitchen fully stocked, and again the location! We enjoyed the quiet neighborhood, were a short distance to endless attractions and fell asleep to the sound of crashing waves. Laurie was amazing to work with and we can’t wait to return!

Lovely cottage near the water.

  • 5 of 5

Our recent stay at Laurie's place was perfect. The cottage is about a 5-10 minute drive to the boardwalk and located next door to the owner's place, so very convenient if any needs arise. The cottage itself is tastefully decorated and fully outfitted with everything we needed to comfortably accommodate six people. The owner was very sweet, checking in on us a couple of times to see if we needed anything. She even offered use of the adjacent outdoor space if we wanted to barbecue, but we never used it. Everyone in our party was very pleased with the rental and I wouldn't hesitate to come back in the future!

Cozy getaway

  • 5 of 5

The perfect getaway! The cottage is incredibly comfortable and welcoming. My husband and I stayed for 5 nights, and had everything we needed. Couldn't have asked for more. The location was great for both getting around Santa Cruz......within walking distance of all we needed. Also a good location for driving to scenic places both north and south. Being one block off the beach was especially nice, as we fell asleep every night to the sound of waves on the beach. Spotlessly clean and beautifully maintained. Laurie was very helpful with suggestions for our stay, and very concerned about making sure we enjoyed ourselves.

Couldn't have asked for better weather! This will be a yearly destination for us!!!
