Come stay at our jewel box by the sea!
Relax in the custom hot tub or with a drink on the outside daybed in this charming fully renovated (Santa Cruz Green Building Award 2008) former fisherman's cottage. Perfectly located one block from West Cliff Drive and an easy 3 block walk to Cowell's Beach; the Boardwalk, world-class surfing and downtown are all just a short stroll. The main house features a living room, dining room, fully-stocked kitchen (Aga stove, marble counters), and bathroom (double shower) with original vintage features. The main bedroom has a brand new comfortable queen mattress. The adorable separate self-contained studio cottage also has a queen bed, kitchenette and bathroom. The third building offers an additional bedroom with queen bed and a media/play room with flat screen television, extensive movie collection, Wii and games suitable for all ages. The upstairs loft in main house offers three twins (not recommended for small children - ladder access only).
The fully-landscaped yard profers a large sail shaded seating area with teak daybed and benches as well as a hot tub and heated outdoor shower for post-surfing clean up. A gas grill and large outdoor dining table is available for alfresco meals. If the evening gets chilly, fire up the outdoor heater and snuggle up to watch the stars while listening to the sea lion seranade!
The owners live locally and are readily available to offer any help needed to make your beach vacation dreams come true!

About Marcy & Adam
Adam is Australian and Marcy grew up in Santa Barbara, so we both grew up next to and loving the ocean. We spent 11 long years on the East coast starting our careers. When we moved back to California (Los Gatos) in 2004, we found ourselves spending every free moment in Santa Cruz. We drove by our beach house every weekend and contacted the owners to see if they'd sell; we won it in a bidding war several months later. What we 'won' was a dilapadated shack with no frame, holes in the floor, and rat-infested outbuildings. We slowly and painfully renovated and restored until we had the little 'jewel box by the sea' of which we had always dreamed! We enjoyed it with our three children (and almost constant visitors) until we recently were forced to acknowledge we were just too much family for such a little (yet, surprisingly functional!) home. Looking forward to retirement, when with any luck it will once again be our full time abode.
Marcy & Adam purchased this Cottage in 2004

Sports & Adventure Activities
We had a fantastic stay. The house was very nice and ideally located. Thanks
If you like to surf and like to walk to the Boardwalk...this is the place to stay!
Charming home with a stunning kitchen! Especially loved the 3 extra twin beds in the loft and the large amount of beach towels provided.
Beds were comfortable and we used the jacuzzi most evenings. Only a 10 minute walk to the boardwalk and less than that to surfing spots!
Be warned the Xbox remotes need batteries! We got only one remote working with new batteries.
All in all we would return. Even cuter than the pictures! 5 stars
Fun time. Space for family to hang out together but not be on top of each other. Kids LOVED the loft!
Beautiful, well kept home. This is our second stay here and we will be back!
This is a very charming home filled with everything you need.
We had a very enjoyable fun time in Santa Cruz. The cottage rental was very accomadating and well centralized to Boardwalk, the Wharf, and beaches. Everything was walking distance. The only place we drive to was the steam engine train that went through the Redwood forest. Awesome experience. That was only 15 minutes away. The fish market on the Wharf was a yummy place to eat as well was the Fire Fish grill.. Our teenage kids enjoying going to the Boardwalk and boogie boarding at the local beaches. The cottage was clean and comfortable. We all enjoyed winding down in the evening by first going into the jacuzzi and then meeting in the media roomo watch a movie together before bed. We will be back!!!
Perfect spot for two families traveling together, everyone had their own "space". Each adult/couple had their own room and the teens piled in to the loft.
We had friends coming and going for a day at the boardwalk and the kids could walk to and from as they wished.
We're all looking forward to a return trip next year!
