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!!!

Awesome location , charming home

  • 5 of 5

This historic cute bungalow is located a walk from the beach and a very nice part of town. My wife myself in our three kids stayed here for four days and loved it. The house has everything you need to stay at night you can hear the waves break in the bay. It's an easy walk to most everything you need to go to. We definitely plan i'm staying at this location again.

The house was perfect! We had all the amenities and then some. Laurie was genuinely concerned about our stay and was willing to immediately take care of any issues that we might experience. Luckily, we did not experience any. Due to an accurate and precise description of the place on-line, we were not caught off guard by anything at all. The beach is less than a block away and the house is located in the fun city of Santa Cruz. Every night, we slept with the windows open and we could hear the waves crashing on the beach. The amusement park, shops, and restaurants are within one mile of the bungalow. The bungalow is EXTREMELY clean and had all the creature comforts my family wanted. I would highly recommend this property if you are looking for a vacation rental.

Thank you Laurie!!!!!

location! location! location!

  • 4 of 5

This lovely cottage is an easy walk to the fun zone. There are so many flowers in the front yard! The kitchen is amazingly and thoroughly stocked. It irked me to pay for a $100 cleaning fee and then to also empty the trash and start laundering the sheets and towels before we left. That said, we did have a wonderful time here. If you are going with little ones, I recommend bringing a gate because the stairs are irresistible. Also, no high chair, etc.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at our home. We take great pride in making sure our home is clean and comfortable when our guests arrive, as it was for you and your family. Though we have an excellent cleaning person, we request that you take your garbage (which sometimes includes old food, dirty diapers etc.) to the outside so our home does not smell unpleasant for our next guests who often arrive within hours of your departure. Again, because of the short time before the next guest arrives I kindly ask that you start one load of laundry. I do not state on the website that a high chair is available at the house and I always provide my phone number and email address to our guests to discuss any questions they may have before they arrive regarding what amenities are provided.
