About the property

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.

Beautiful condo. Just as advertised

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for a week. The condo is immaculate, the ocean views are beautiful and the place is very comfortable. The living room is open to the dining area and kitchen, making it a good place to entertain guests. The kitchen is very well equipped which we liked because we enjoy cooking. We used the outdoor grill, too, which was clean and easy to use. The location is great, easy to get to the harbor as well as Capitola. Our son and his wife and 2 small grandchildren live in Santa Cruz, so it was perfect place to meet, go to the beach, have a family dinner and enjoy life. The beach is literally a half block from the house. The owner is very attentive and easy to contact should a problem arise. We will stay here again.

Owner's Response: I am so happy that you enjoyed your stay. In fact, my vacation rental unit is not a condominium, but instead the entire top floor of a duplex. I own the entire building. A single professional currently rents the downstairs one bedroom unit. Thank you for the wonderful review.

Fabulous girlfriend retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Four girlfriends for over 53 years from the same high school get together in Santa Cruz annually. This is absolutely the best house and location ever! The owners take pride in sharing their home. It's well appointed with all the amenities. We cooked in, played cards, shared memories, laughing and crying all while listening and watching the waves crashing on the shore outside. It was convenient to restaurants, shopping and beach combing. Thank you, Ed, for your attentiveness to all our needs. We will be back!!!

Outstanding!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of friends (mid-40s) from around the country getting together for a "girls weekend". This place was absolutely perfect. The views are incredible, the location made it easy to get to Capitola, and walking distance to coffee, restaurants, etc. The kitchen is extremely well appointed and was great for making meals, and the house is newly renovated with beautiful finishes. We took a wine tour of the region and couldn't get over how beautiful it was with some really excellent vineyards. Have been to Napa/Sonoma on several occasions and I would come back to Santa Cruz in a heartbeat!

Ed, the owner, was extremely helpful and accommodating. Can wait for the next visit.

Truly Lovely!

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful moment in time shared by five female friends all who are connected as far back as high school!!! We have tried to gather together yearly but as we are all quite busy (even those who have already retired) it can be a bit of a project to find a place we all want to visit. Santa Cruz was our chosen destination in late October 2016. This home impressed all of us. It is beautifully appointed and maintained. We were not as lucky as many who have stayed in the milder months as it rained the entire time we were there...but that did not keep any of us from enjoying the spectacular views, relishing the sound of the surf, or strolling to Pleasure Point and on to Capitola for Happy Hour. Parking worked out well. As many before me have stated, Ed is a gracious host for this home away from home. I vacationed in SC most of my life as a child and young adult so SC is familiar to me and I always choose this area to find a rental because of the close proximity to the ocean and the small rural streets. Cannot go wrong with this choice for a vacation rental.

This is a five star rental. We had an incredible time and will be back.

  • 5 of 5

The location is the best. This part of Santa Cruz seems to have better weather than closer to Seascape. Your just a few minutes to Capitola and our favorite eatery Gayle's. The interior is spotless and the beds are super comfortable. My wife would keep the master bedroom door open so she could wake up and see the waves breaking on the beach. Can't get much better than this!

Beautiful home with ocean views

  • 5 of 5

Family vacation at Allegra Villa Alla Spiaggia was great! Beautiful home with all the amenities you will need. We loved hanging out on the back deck enjoying the ocean views. Good neighborhood restaurants, coffee, etc within walking distance. We would definitely come back in the future.
