Santa Cruz House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 5)

This famous California Craftsman Bungalow on the Santa Cruz Historical Register has been recently remodeled with all modern upgrades and conveniences!

This beautiful, spotless, fully furnished home is one house off East Cliff Drive overlooking Seabright Beach - perfect for relaxation yet close to numerous Santa Cruz attractions. Once you have arrived, you can park your car during your stay, as there are restaurants, coffee shops, a grocery store, the Santa Cruz Harbor, an award-winning Microbrewery, the Boardwalk Amusement Park, Natural History Museum, and the best beach in Santa Cruz within steps.

The floorplan is ideal for relaxation, having the living (with new gas fireplace) and dining areas, large modern kitchen, full bathroom with shower and washer/dryer, on the first floor, with two bedrooms and 1/2 bath upstairs.

Upstairs, the large Master Bedroom contains a Queen bed, and the other bedroom has 2 twins (both upstairs bedrooms have dressers and closets for unpacking!).

There is also a living room sofa bed that opens to a double bed. An additional outdoor shower is adjacent to the back door if you want to clean up after being at the beach. The full modern kitchen contains extensive counter space and includes refrigerator, gas cooking range oven, quiet dishwasher, garbage disposal in sink, and microwave. Small appliances include coffee maker, blender, & toaster. Fully equipped with dishes, glassware and bar ware, cooking utensils, and basic spices. Two telephones allow local calls, and television/DVD with cable included.

There is an impeccably manicured English garden with large grass front yard and concrete patio (including table and chairs for outside dining, if preferred) and Weber barbecue. Linens and bath towels are provided. This fantastic Craftsman Bungalow is loved by all. There is even room to store the included beach chairs and umbrella. Upon exiting the property, you are on the #1-voted Santa Cruz beach within seconds, enjoying the views of Monterey Bay, Seabright Lighthouse, and the Santa Cruz Harbor.

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.

Santa Cruz has it all!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week at this beautiful little home. The place was full of character and had everything we needed. The garden and beach were a peaceful way to wake up every day. The beach is just steps away and the town of Santa Cruz had something for everyone. We were able to do a day up in San Francisco, a day in Monterey/Carmel, but the time in Santa Cruz was the best -exploring beaches, redwoods, town, great dining out, and the boardwalk! Laurie and Bill were wonderful hosts and more than hospitable. We can't wait to come back!

Beautiful Place!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful place to stay! It is exceptionally clean and has absolutely everything you need. The owners have equipped the rental with many extras; kitchen paper products, spices, beach towels, beach chairs. The property is very well maintained with gorgeous gardens and a great patio.

The location is perfect. You are one house away from the beach and an easy to walk to restaurants. Santa Cruz is a great location for visiting The Redwoods, Monterey and Big Sur.

I give the hosts and Seabright Bungalow 5 Stars!
