Overview

Santa Cruz 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.

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.

Perfect Honeymoon/Anniversary Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My 86 year old parents wanted to come to Santa Cruz for their 65th wedding anniversary. I wanted to make their stay memorable and still accommodate their mobility restrictions. Dad could not take a walk on the beach but woke up every morning with a smile as he enjoyed his cup of Verve coffee and view from the dining room. At happy hour, the deck with view and sound of the surf was their favorite spot. And the master suite was perfect for these honeymooners. Mom loved the fireplace and listening to the surf as she drifted off to sleep. As the host, I appreciated the cleanliness, well appointed kitchen, and convenient location. Thank you Ed for sharing your wonderful beach home!! We hope to visit again.

Best Place Ever!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the property was wonderful. There were 5 of us, 'mature' high school friends who get together twice a year. The home is pristine, newly & nicely decorated, the beds are all very comfortable, and the deck has a view of the ocean -- we saw dolphins swimming north and south all afternoon! Kitchen is a chef's kitchen and 2-3 can work there easily. Thanks for a nice home, Ed!

Spotless

  • 5 of 5

Allegra Villa is lovely -- totally as billed in the photographs, beautiful view (we saw lots of dolphins in the water), and plenty of room for two small families to share. We loved having a deck overlooking the ocean, and loved the warm outdoor shower. The kitchen is very well stocked and we were able to make a meal and cookies (always important!). Would definitely recommend to others.

Allegra Villa Alla Spiaggia - Amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

This place is special!! The location is ideal, so close to everything! Just steps to the beach and a short walk/drive to the harbor, boardwalk, downtown, and Capitola. The house has so many nice features! Aside from having an amazing ocean view, it has beautiful granite counter tops, tile in the bathrooms, gourmet kitchen, and a nice entertainment system with surround sound!! Also Ed was very nice to work with. Thanks again! You will not be disappointed. We hope to come back someday!!
