This is a brand new custom built home with creative attention to detail in the Twin Lakes Beach and Santa Cruz Yacht Harbor neighborhood.

With slate and hardwood floors, bamboo cabinets and granite counter tops, the interior is as pleasing to the eye as the unobstructed ocean view enjoyed from almost every room.

Come be part of the beach and harbor community while relaxing in the luxurious surroundings of this special house.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Beautiful home. I've been coming to SC for 30+ years and this is the nicest home by far. Enjoyed the view from the deck of the beach and the beautiful weather. Almost everything is within walking distance. Thank you again!

Amazing house; beautiful views; great location for walks, restaurants and fun. The house is bigger than you think. My family and I would love to come back to this home. We did have some cleaning problems when we first came in but cleaning service came right over and made it all good.

A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR

  • 5 of 5

Over from the UK to see our daughter, Alex, her husband Scott and the grandkids, Bella and Samuel. Stayed at the Harborside Retreat and welcomed in the New year in style. Lovely, well appointed property, perfectly positioned in Santa Cruz harbor. We loved our short stay. Alex will try to book the house during the summer. Many thanks. Spencer

Beautiful home, Awesome location

  • 4 of 5

This house was bigger and nicer than it photographs, it is the perfect rental for a large family or group of friends. You can not beat the location - half a block from a gorgeous beach, restaurants, and bars, plus harbor/ocean views right from the living room and balcony. We didn't need to get in our car all weekend, which is a huge plus! We have bookmarked this one for our next stay. Only reason why we couldn't give this 5 stars was because the wifi wasn't working when we were there.

Comfortable, Convenient, Contemporary

  • 5 of 5

The Harborside Retreat was the perfect home-base for my 35th birthday celebration with friends and family at the Santa Cruz Harbor. An ideal location, comfortable furnishings, and amazing views set the stage for a fantastic weekend. Easily accessible to all the area attractions, and equally as enjoyable to sit on the balcony taking in the hustle and bustle of the harbor, or enjoy a meal on the front or back patio. This will be our go-to spot when staying in Santa Cruz!

It was wonderful...one of the best homes we have ever rented. So many conveniences, just like home!

  • 5 of 5

There were 4 adults and 3 children and we enjoyed the space! Kids loved the basement area where they could color, draw, play games, watch t.v. and practice on their keyboard. It was their own little area with a bathroom! We could all spread out. Enjoyed the modern kitchen and bathrooms, large living -dining area for family meals and games. Loved the view with my morning coffee...beautiful.

Thought the floor could have been cleaner...found dust in corners and around edges of rooms. We did lots of sweeping all the time. Should be a rug between sink and large island...floor is getting ruined from drips. Beach towels are advertised but there was only one in the garage...we had brought extra. Could use a few more bath and kitchen towels...many were old and worn.

Overall it was fabulous! Hope to return next year.

Perfect beach getaway! Close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

We will be back again! My family and friends were all blown away about the location for the beach house and all the great amenities. We especially loved the remodeled kitchen. My family and I are huge fans of the Crows Nest restaurant so this location was SO ideal for us. No complaints at all!! Will recommend to family and friends to rent.
