A great house for a multi-generation family and anyone else who wants to go to Santa Cruz!

  • 5 of 5

This house is wonderful. It is equipped with everything you could want for a vacation. Bikes, boogie boards, ping pong table, fire pit, barbecue, hot tub, a marvelous kitchen, well equipped with everything you could desire and a fabulous library of books to read. The best surprise was the garden--lots of garden "rooms" for sitting and chatting or sipping coffee or wine in a quiet space. Brian and Hallie were warm and welcoming and very helpful. Our group of ten, three generations, used the house and the cottage which proved a great space for three teenagers. The beach is a few blocks away, restaurants and shopping are terrific. I highly recommend this house and would come again in a heartbeat. Thank you for a wonderful mini vacation. Florence K

Wonderful house with a great location!

  • 5 of 5

Hallie was very accommodating and met us upon our arrival. The home was perfect for our group. Great location! Within walking distance of everything we needed. All the conveniences of home. We will stay here again when we return to the area. We shopped close at Whole Foods. Ate a meal at Betty's Burgers. Walked to the beach daily and played pin pong in the yard. Very relaxing and enjoyable. Thank you for a great stay!

Everything for a Perfect Family Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Four generations of my family spent four lovely days at this great home by the beach. I wish we could have stayed longer. The home is well-equipped, comfortable, clean, and decorated in a fun beach way. The backyard garden was the best. It is an inspired tropical paradise with plenty of places to sit and enjoy a glass of wine, quiet conversation, family dinner at the large patio dining table, or a lively ping pong game. The home is in a perfect location between Santa Cruz and Capitola that provides something fun for everyone: grandparents, teens, toddlers and everyone in between. Even the dog had the best vacation ever. Some family members went kayaking and saw lots of sea otters, sea lions, harbor seals, pelicans, etc. The teens took a surf lesson at Pleasure Point. We picked up lunch and a Boston cream pie from the famous Gayles bakery in Capitola and had a delicious lunch at Johnny's near the Santa Cruz harbor. But mostly we cooked in the home's well-equipped kitchen and enjoyed our meals at the spacious dining table inside or out on the backyard deck. Great beach vacation home!

Beautiful Home, Lovely and Lively Neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

The house was open and light and had everything our family needed for a nice stay. The beach is a block away and it's was so nice to take a walk to the sunset then come home to this beautiful home and take a hot tub. Can't wait to come back next year.
