Harbor Willow is a quaint split-level shingle style cottage located on a quiet tree-lined side street in one of Santa Cruz's most desirable neighborhoods. The cottage is a perfect private getaway for couples or those with a small child or two.
Adjacent to the Santa Cruz Yacht Harbor and a block or so from Twin Lakes & Seabright beaches, both beaches are consistently voted the best by local residents.
The living/bedroom area features partial views of the Monterey Bay and Yacht Harbor thorough custom made arched wood sash windows. The room is comfortably furnished with a queen bed, one upholstered chair & ottoman, two leather swivel chairs, an antique writing desk and hardwood floors. TV & high speed WiFi are provided.
The kitchen/dining area has a full size custom dining table (seats 4), a cast-iron gas heater flanked by 2 wicker chairs, tile floors, custom pine cabinetry with granite tile counter tops and a view of the cottage's private garden.
The bathroom features a full size tub/shower, and was remodeled in 2016.
The sunny brick & paver garden patio is entered through a private entrance. An ancient camellia tree shelters the entry door. The patio is furnished with wicker & black iron tables & chairs, a gas grill and has a hot/cold outdoor shower that is perfect for warming the little ones after a day at the beach.
Private washer and dryer are available to guests.
Harbor willow is well situated for day trips to San Francisco or Monterey. The renowned Monterey Bay Aquarium is but 45 minutes distant. Fine dining & entertainment are within walking distance as is the historic SC Beach Boardwalk Amusement Park.

I instantly felt at home. My boyfriend and I were extremely comfortable in this adorable cottage. Lovely full kitchen with plenty of utilities. I absolutely loved the awesome water pressure. Short walking distance to Seabright beach, Crows Nest, Boardwalk and many more entertaining places. We will be returning and not mention one of the best rentals I have had to date.
Harbor Willow was an excellent choice for us and we loved both the house and it's proximity to local restaurants/cafes, harbor, beach, boardwalk and more. I especially appreciated the personal touches, the owners have done a great job with the space and the amenities. We found it to be super clean, nicely furnished and very comfortable. The owners were incredibly nice and helpful. Highly recommend it, and we definitely plan to stay at Harbor Willow on our next visit.
We enjoyed our time here. This charming cottage was tastefully put together. With much wood trim, the upstairs feels like a treehouse--yet large enough to be both sitting room and bedroom overlooking the yacht harbor. The downstairs is smaller, although the kitchen was well supplied, and opens to a private patio for outdoor meals. Our host, Karen, was wonderful and created the perfect vibe. Tip: put the yellow throw pillow in the porthole above the bed (only lower half is necessary) or the sunrise will fall full on your face; bring toilet paper and a personal hotspot as wifi is very weak. Minor issues for an overall lovely stay. Be sure and stroll the promenade walk overlooking the beach!
