County Of Santa Cruz Transient Occupancy Certificate # CO00039

Note to Beach Vacation renters: Don’t be fooled by rentals that may have a good view from the house, but getting to a beach can be a, well, a real “beach”. Common problems are inaccessible or inconvenient beach access (steep cliffs), windy, foggy weather and small or no beaches at high tide (rentals on West Cliff, Pleasure Point, and Opal Cliffs have these problems.)

Time out of Time

  • 5 of 5

This home is beautiful, warm, clean and luxurious. It was everything and more than what was described. We lacked for nothing and felt spoiled living there for a week.

We were there with out kids and grandson and sometimes found it difficult to leave the comfort of this house. We enjoyed Capitola, Santa Cruz Downtown and Monterey throughout our stay and each day trip was relaxing because of the central location.

We highly recommend the local funky restaurant Paula's. It is only blocks away and the breakfast is delicious and inexpensive.

Santa Cruz in January!

  • 5 of 5

Renting the 'Yellow House' - Santa Cruz in January was a perfect idea for our family. The home was well equipped, kitchen had everything I needed to prepare meals, the electronic equipment had perfect 'how to use' instructions, plenty of towels, bbq, etc. The home is nicely maintained, and easy access to the beach. Only challenge was the spotty cell service, however, home has wifi. I would definitely recommend this home to anyone looking for a nice getaway, you won't be disappointed.

Wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home!! Our family had a fabulous week the week of Thanksgiving. Couldn't ask for a better way to spend Thanksgiving! The house if fully equipped to cook and entertain for a perfect Thanksgiving feast. Location is fantastic! We walked everywhere from there. To the beach, 41st ave., local coffee shops as well as a quick walk to Starbucks. Upstairs master suite is amazing! So comfortable, peaceful with a deck that has a view of the ocean. We can't wait to stay there again.

Great Location and fun property

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of women staying in the house for a long weekend and really enjoyed the house. It is very well equipped, the kitchen has pretty much everything you can think of or need, which is a nice change from many other rentals I've been to. The beds are all comfortable, 2 rooms are spacious and great for adults and the other 2 rooms are smaller and likely easier for kids but we adults made it work as well. The decorations and furnishings are all very nice, you don't feel like you're in a hotel but in someone's home. The beach is an extremely short jaunt from the house, which was great and there are 4 nice Tommy Bahama beach chairs you can use! The grill works really well and they make sure you're well stocked with gas (2 tanks). You're out of the main touristy fray but can get to it fairly quickly should you want to. Everything was very clean and tidy, the fruit bread, wine and preserves were a very nice arrival gift. The only thing I can think of that would be a nice addition would be a Bluetooth speaker so you can play music from your phone, I forgot to bring mine, but that is it! Otherwise I highly recommend!
