About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

Seabright Cabin is a fully updated 1913 historic cottage in the Seabright neighborhood of Santa Cruz. Completely renovated in 2012 from top to bottom. Walk to beach, harbor, restaurants, coffee shops, and Boardwalk. One bedroom with queen bed, plus a loft with twin mattresses perfect for kids over age 7. Open, light-filled floor plan creates an inviting space that feels much larger. Features include high-speed wireless internet, warm-water outdoor shower, gas BBQ, and stacking washer-dryer. Snugly insulated for comfort and quiet. Ceiling fans and double-hung wood windows circulate summer breezes, and a gas stove keeps things toasty warm on winter days. Driveway with uncovered parking for one car. All linens, beach gear, cooking and serving supplies, board games, DVD library included. Flat-screen TV with cable, blu-ray, and Roku for streaming Netflix, HBO GO, and other content.

Front porch with antique chairs gets morning sun, perfect for enjoying your coffee or catching up on email. Back patio has a dining table with umbrella seating 4. Fruit trees provide shade and fresh fruit for summer guests.

Seabright Beach is a 6 minute walk and the Santa Cruz yacht Harbor is a 5-10 minute walk. The Boardwalk Amusement park is an easy walk (15 min and save the high parking fee), but geographically separated from our neighborhood by the San Lorenzo River so you don't get the crowds and traffic. Warehouse complex across the street has the popular Verve coffee roastery for your morning latte, and a rock climbing gym with yoga and other classes available for visitors. Great restaurants and coffee shops are on adjacent blocks. The home is centrally located so you're usually less than 10 minutes from almost anything you want to do in Santa Cruz.

Delighted guests have included families on a beach vacation, retirees visiting grandchildren, college tours, honeymooners, people visiting their Santa Cruz relatives and friends, solo travelers, academics on sabbatical, business trips extended for fun, etc, etc.

We rent to mature adults over 25 years old. Home may be unsafe for toddlers and small children due to the loft. No pets.

About Seabright Cabin

I grew up in Santa Cruz and still visit several times of year, either solo or with my husband and 2 kids, to visit family and all my favorite haunts.

Seabright Cabin purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Seabright Cabin chose Santa Cruz

We love this neighborhood and how easy it is to walk to coffee and all our favorite restaurants, then on to the beach or Boardwalk.

What makes this cottage unique

We renovated this house from top to bottom in 2012 so everything is brand new. It has beautiful hardwood floors, a lovely custom kitchen, and is snug and comfortable.

You will love the cozy, light-filled home and beautiful hardwood floors. Our house is not big, but it is designed to give you just what you need. You can walk to restaurants, beach, bars, cliff. Everything you need is close by. The mixed-use neighborhood has commercial buildings and private homes, it is on a side street but there is some commercial traffic during the day.

Beautiful, cozy cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is attractive and well kept. Clean inside and out. Comfortable bed. Overall excellent for a couple. Not sure I'd bring the kids along. There's not a lot of extra space around and imagine feeling cramped if more people were with us.

Easy walk to the beach. Great coffee across the street, literally. Owner was easy to deal with.

great place, very nice owner!

  • 5 of 5

We (two adults with our 16-year-old son) spent three weeks in this really wonderful cabin. It is equipped with virtually everything you might need in Santa Cruz (except for kayaks and a surf board ;-), and is in a very convenient and quiet location. We felt very much at home from the beginning. The owner is very nice and answers promptly to all requests.

Great Cottage in a Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 had a great time at Seabright Cabin. It's a small cottage, but feels bigger than it is. My daughter absolutely loved the loft! The house was very clean, and we loved having a washer and dryer. It's situated in our favorite part of Santa Cruz...just around the corner from our favorite breakfast place, Linda's, and walking distance to the beach, boardwalk, and lots of other restaurants. Would stay here again in a heartbeat!

A comfortable and stylish home

  • 5 of 5

The Seabright cabin has to be one of the nicest places I have ever stayed. It is comfortable and very well equipped as well as being stylish and attractive. It is in a quiet street but close to some great places to eat (Verve coffee shop across the street, Betty Burgers, Java Junction, Seabright Brewery and Enfer's Pizza around the corner are all good) and a local store. It is walking distance to the beach and the harbour where there are more cafes and bars and, a bit further afield, the Boardwalk. Both downtown Santa Cruz, Capitola and the 41st Ave Mall are only 10 minutes drive. It is a great place for surfers, families with children and people who like to climb (climbing gym is right across the street also). It is also a lovely place to relax and work in if that's your idea of a vacation. Disability tip: my husband is on crutches and the house was great for us because it is all on one level with just a couple of steps at the front and a doorstep at the back. It might be a bit difficult to manoeuvre a wheelchair around inside though. We thoroughly recommend this place and would happily stay there again!
