Overview

Opal Cliffs Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

This luxury second-floor Santa Cruz beach rental located a few houses from the beach exudes Mediterranean charm and offers panoramic ocean views of Monterey Bay. It was recently selected to appear on the show Sweet Retreats, which airs nationally on the ABC Live Well Network. A spacious living room, dining room and kitchen open onto an expansive rear deck. During your days, a short walk, without crossing any streets, leads to the top of a wood, railed stairway to the beach, and an outdoor shower awaits you upon your return. Spend a romantic evening listening to the waves crashing on the beach or drown them out with the surround sound state-of-the-art home theatre system.

Three bedrooms and two baths offer comfortable sleeping in beds for up to seven guests. The master bedroom, which also opens onto the rear deck, includes a gas fireplace and an HDTV. A large walk-in closet provides ample storage for all your travel apparel. Enjoy the wonders of the natural world with stone floors in both bathrooms, granite countertops throughout, and three radiant skylights.

This newly remodeled Santa Cruz beach house has insulated walls and double-pane windows, which will allow you to sleep peacefully even if the kids are still awake. So that you don’t lose touch with the outside world, high-speed wireless and wired internet are provided, in addition to HD cable. Finally, a high-efficiency washer and gas dryer will ensure that your clothes come home just as clean as they were when you arrived.

Our vacation home is packed with everything you will need to enjoy your escape, including: five beds; hypoallergenic comforter for each bed; two complete baths with granite countertops and stone floors and walls; a 55 inch 1080P LCD TV and 5 speaker in-ceiling surround sound in living room; a 40 inch 1080P LCD TV in master bedroom; Blu-Ray Players for each TV, allowing for viewing both Blu-Ray Discs and DVDs; beautiful gas fireplaces in both living room and master bedroom; a smartphone connection to the speakers in living room; a fully stocked kitchen that includes a refrigerator, a dual fuel range, a dishwasher and a microwave; and a dining room that accommodate six people at a table and three at a bar.

We are located 40 minutes south of the San Jose Airport and 1.5 hours south of the San Francisco Airport and 30 minutes north of Carmel and Monterey. The Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk is about a 10 minute drive; ride the historic Big Dipper and enjoy a great family outing. The Santa Cruz harbor is just over a mile to the west, where you can check out the lighthouse and some nice restaurants. Pleasure Point, where you can experience some of the best surfing in the United States, is only a short mile away. Capitola is less than 3 miles to the east; take a walk down the pier or cruise around the local shops.

We look forward to your escape to our relaxing and beautiful Santa Cruz vacation rental beach house on Monterey Bay.

About The Owner

After visiting Santa Cruz for years, we decided to purchase a property here. It is a fun place for families and couples, and a short escape from the Bay Area. We like being near the beach, and enjoy boogie boarding, body surfing, kite flying and other water activities. We also enjoy the other local amenities, including Capitola, the harbor and the Boardwalk. In addition, Monterey and Carmel are only an hour away.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2007

Why The Owner chose Santa Cruz

We love our area because it feels like a beach community. Our vacation rental is only a few doors from a terrific beach and located along a bike path. Since street parking during the summer is restricted to local homeowners and guests, the beach is not very crowded. The property needed a great deal of work when we purchased it, shortly after returning from a trip to Italy, and we spent most of 2008 remodeling. We decided that a Mediterranean theme was a good fit for the structure.

What makes this villa unique

We like being close to the water, and that is how we feel when at our property. Not only do we have terrific views of the beach and the surf, but we can also hear the soothing sound of the waves crashing on the beach. It is very relaxing.

Get ready for a relaxing vacation

This is the second time we've stayed in this beautiful house. It is spotless and so well taken care of. The owners take great pride in the house, and it was as pristine this trip as it was three years ago. There were three adults and two teenage girls in our group. The bedrooms are lovely, with nice linens. There was plenty of room for us to be together, yet have privacy when needed. The kitchen is very well-equipped. The living room and dining room have a perfect beach view. The location is great - the walkway down to the beach is one house away. It was convenient to have the outdoor shower when we came home from the beach. We also took lots of neighborhood walks. It's a quick drive to Pleasure Point and Capitola in one direction, and the Santa Cruz Harbor area in the other direction.

Beautiful home, excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We found this gem last year and have now made it our annual vacation getaway with the kids. The house is spacious, large enough to fit my husband and I, our son and daughter in law, and their two kids very comfortably. There is a beautiful view from the living/dining/kitchen areas as well as the master bedroom. If you ever vacation in the Santa Cruz/Capitola area you know it can get very busy. Well this house is perfectly located next to a large beach which is never over crowded, is clean and has tide pools for the kids to enjoy. Close enough to head to downtown Santa Cruz, the boardwalk or Capitola very easily, but with enough distance that you're not constantly battling crowds. We dined in most meals and the house has everything we needed to cook nice meals, BBQ and enjoy the view from the comfort of the living room. We plan on visiting Allegra Villa Alla Spiaggia every summer!

Luxurious home in excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

Seven of us recently stayed in the home, 5 adults and 2 children. We've been vacationing in Santa Cruz for many years and this was the best view of any home we've rented. We slept with the windows open every night and fell asleep to the sounds of the waves. The home is beautifully appointed with great beds and bedding, towels, etc. The location is perfect. Nice beaches that don't get too crowded are within an easy walk around the corner. Wi-Fi worked wonderfully and we loved the surround sound for movie night. You could not ask for anything more in a vacation home! Highly recommend!

Remarkable location and immaculately maintained for family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time in the villa! We had 2 families, each with 2 kids under 3 staying there for almost a week. The views were spectacular, waking up to the crashing waves everyday. It's very close to the beach, so easy just to walk to every afternoon. The villa itself is the most beautiful place around, both inside and out. It has all the nice touches of comfortable beds, a modern updated kitchen, the quietest dishwasher, washer, and dryer I've ever heard and tastefully updated bathrooms. There are so many fun activities to do in the area, or you could spend the whole day at the house and the beach. Perfect for either! Also with such small children we were impressed at how "babyproofed" the house was. Ed was extremely helpful and willing to accommodate whatever we needed.

Perfect for Families with Teenagers

  • 5 of 5

This villa is spectacular and perfect for larger families. Our five teenage children who go to four different schools all had the same Spring Break, and we took it as a sign to go to Santa Cruz for a few of the days. The beach is right down the street, and the kids loved being so close. We all enjoyed sitting on the deck and watching the waves. The villa is beautiful inside and out. The beds are comfortable, the kitchen is great to cook in, and we all wanted to stay a few days longer. Ed is great to deal with and very accessible. We hope to come back again.
