About Lily

My husband and I both grew up along the coast of Southern California and we both love everything that a quaint beach town has to offer. As soon as we found the SEABRIGHT beach area, we fell in love.. It is so bright and sunny, and we just loved the fresh air, the sound of the crashing ocean waves, the casual attitude, the friendly environment, and the vacation like feel. With the beach just a few steps away, the Santa Cruz Boardwalk, many restaurants, and the harbor, all within such a short walking distance, it seemed like a perfect place for our family to build many, delightful and fantastic memories. So far it has been a perfect vacation place for us and such a great location and we hope you and your family enjoy this house and it's location as much as we have!

Lily purchased this house in 2009

Why Lily chose Santa Cruz

We chose to buy a house in the Seabright area because it is one of the nicest, sunniest areas in Santa Cruz. This little town is very well cared for and has such cute Victorian beach cottage homes. The beach has bathrooms and showers and a little ice cream stand and there are also lifeguard stations all along the beach making it a very safe and family friendly beach. Seabright beach also allows bonfires in the evening and this makes the beach a unique place. Also what made this location ideal for us is that the Santa Cruz beach boardwalk is only a short walking distance from the house as well as numerous restaurants and the harbor. There are lots of beautiful trails and walks from the house along the ocean front and the neighborhood is very friendly.

What makes this house unique

The location of this house is ideal! It is nicely situated between both the boardwalk and the harbor. The beach entrance is right at the bottom of our street, the boardwalk and the harbor are both only about a 5 minute walk away,. So, you have the beach, the harbor, AND an amusement area so close! It is such a special place and nested within a nice, clean and quiet neighborhood. The beach at the bottom of the street is a special beach. It is never a crowded or busy area because of where we are situated. Another thing that makes this particular area special is that Seabright beach allows bonfires at night. It is a special and neat experience to walk right down, to the beach, have a nice bonfire, roast hot dogs, or smores and chat with family and/or friends and then walk right home.

Another fun thing to do is to walk along the ocean front as you make your way to the harbor. Aldo's is a great restaraunt on the harbor to eat and/or have drinks and enjoy the beautiful scenery while watching the boats sailing in and out of the harbor. There are seals and pelicans and you can even take a walk all the way out to the lighthouse or rent boats or kayaks if you are feeling adventurous.

A museum is also at the bottom of the street with a large whale out front that is as fun spot for kids to climb and play.

One of our favorite things to do when we are there is to wake up, sit on the deck and to listen for the ocean. Then, go for nice little walk to a local coffee shop with our children. We grab coffee and breakfast and then head down to the beach. With our eldest son on his bike, and youngest in the wagon, we head over to the harbor and let the kids run down to the light house. As we make our way back we head to the beach, the kids romp and play in the sand and waves and we head back to the house for lunch. We end our day roasting hot dogs and marshmallows with a bonfire on the beach or a barbeque on the deck upstairs!

The house is situated in Seabright , a quiet, bright and sunny neighborhood within a short walking distance to the beach, the Santa Cruz boardwalk, and the harbor. A very special memory is the ability to have bonfires in a fire ring at the beach and then come back and sleep in the comfort of a bed! An Ideal location with so much to do within such a short 5 min or less walk. So much to do at the Boardwalk, rides, foods, games, restaraunts, concerts, etc.. Scenic walks and trails along the beach, walk out to the lighthouse, and to many local restaurants within the village. Once you arrive, you will virtually never need to drive anywhere.

Great home that accommodates kids and provides so much convenience...for both location and amenities

  • 5 of 5

We love this house! It is so comfortable and with 4 kids between 4 and 10, we don't feel like we have to walk on eggshells. It is well stocked with toys that are meant to be used, more than adequate access to TV channels and OnDemand. Kitchen has just about everything you can possibly need and beach stuff is plentiful. The kids really appreciated the wetsuits this year as it was cooler than usual! Location is ideal! Seabright Beach is straight down the street and the Boardwalk and wharf are easy walking distance... we rarely move the cars! The upstairs deck has ocean view too! We just can't say enough about this house and grateful we get to enjoy it again next year!

Excellent Location and great house

  • 5 of 5

It was our first time to Santa Cruz, but I really think the location was the best possible location. It is 2 blocks from the beach, 10 minute walk to a huge amusement park (we went 3 times) and close to great restaurants and coffee shops. We were 2 families and the house was perfect for us -- the upstairs is fantastic for a small family (like my sister's with one baby) - it is a space on its own with fridge and bathroom, and my family of 5 stayed on the bottom floor with 2 bedrooms right next to each other. The beds were clean and comfortable, and we all slept well. There were a couple of minor issues we had with plumbing/appliance, and Lily attended to them right away and were fixed/resolved promptly. The hot tub was great too. In general, the place is very comfortable and well kept. It felt like home.

Great location for a great vacation

  • 5 of 5

Lili was fantastic.

I had "fat fingers" when trying to book our vacation but Lili was very patient and helped me through the process of straightening out our reservation. The house was just as advertised.

A pleasant stroll to the Boardwalk, beach and harbor with a store and good resturants close by.

Thanks Lili for letting us share your house for a nice, comfortable stay.

Additional information about rental rates

Cleaning Fee $150
Damage Deposit $500

If stay is more than 90 days away, initial payment can consist of only deposit. But, then at 90 days before rental, I would require half the rental fee and the cleaning fee, and then 15 days before check in would be half the rental fee and the Santa Cruz 11% Tax.
