About the property

Two bedroom, one full bath, sleeps up to five.

Sharing Gates by the Sea -

Walk about 60 yards, around the corner, to the warmest beaches in Santa Cruz, including Sunny Cove and Santa Maria beaches. Play in the sand, boogie board, wander a long stretch of beach, explore the tide pools, and enjoy the sunset. Walk to nearby restaurants. The cottage is located halfway between the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, and Capitola Village (two scenic miles each way).

The little beach house...Sharing Gates by the Sea...was once a part of the Victorian resort, the Hotel Villa del Mar, now a retreat center on 19th Avenue. Built in the 1890s, the 580 square foot cottage has personality and charm. The peaked redwood-paneled ceiling makes the living room feel spacious. The cottage sleeps five. There is a queen bed in the bedroom, and a full-size sofa bed in the living room. The private, sun porch room has a twin bed, and could be used as a small, second bedroom. The cozy garden surrounding the house is fully fenced.

Quaint cabin near the ocean

  • 4 of 5

This was a nice little cabin. Walking distance to the ocean, and starbucks. Not a luxury stay but perfect for a family with small children.

A real gem by the ocean

  • 5 of 5

I was looking for a place by the ocean to have some quiet time and this sweet little cottage was perfect. Though the street out in front can be busy during the day, the fenced yard makes it feel very private and you can’t really hear traffic noise inside the house. The neighborhood itself felt very quiet. I rented a car, but hardly drove it. There is a Starbucks a block away and almost everything you need is within walking distance. Early morning and evening sunset at the beach (right around the corner) are spectacular. This place is ideal for a single guest or a couple and is stocked with everything you need. The owner is very responsive to any questions or concerns. The cottage was very clean and well stocked with linens and towels. It has a very Santa Cruz beachy feel. It is not fancy or modern, but feels so homey and comfortable. I stayed for a week and was very sad to leave. I already want to come back. This place is a real find and much more reasonably priced than almost any place else that I saw in this location.

Perfect for our girls getaway

  • 5 of 5

Very nice beach cottage! There were 3 of us and each had our own space. The bathroom thru the bedroom was no problem for us. Loved the privacy of fenced yard. Cottage was very clean. Owner Jeanne was very fast at responding to messages from start of reservation to end of our stay. Would stay here again.

Map

Car: recommended

Santa Cruz is known for surfing and its historic Beach-Boardwalk, and there is so much more to do here! Within a half hour drive, visit the redwoods, ride the Roaring Camp train through the mountains, go wine tasting, shop in Capitola or at Santa Cruz's unique downtown area, visit the old Spanish mission, eat at unique restaurants, or take a whale watching trip from the Santa Cruz Municipal Wharf. Plan a day trip to Carmel and the Monterey Bay Aquarium, 'The City' -- San Francisco -- is two hours north along the coast or through Silicon Valley and the SF bay area. Enjoy exploring!
