About The Owner

Sisters Kim and Pam bought this adorable bungalow as a family project. We've lovingly updated it and look forward to sharing it with guests as well as our families.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2011

Why The Owner chose Santa Cruz County

We love the Santa Cruz vibe and hope to retire here. Our favorite childhood memories are of the beach and boardwalk at Santa Cruz.

What makes this cottage unique

A morning walk with the dogs to Java Junction for a latte at the beach. Watching the beach wake up and start populating. Or coffee in the garden, reading the paper and watching the birds.

Private Cottage with incredible yard

  • 5 of 5

We just loved our stay here. The place is so cute, really clean, perfect location! They have everything you need for a bbq party or a lovely dinner for two. The location was great for us, close to the Harbor,Boardwalk and close enough to downtown too. We will be back, I need to get back in the hammock. Thank you Kim, you were a great hostess. See you soon.

Adorable Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our stay. Very clean and comfortable. Had everything we needed. Enjoyed walking to Crow's Nest for dinner and drinks, and also walking to the beach and along the marina to the lighthouse. Lots of brochures of local activities available and a nice bottle of wine to enjoy. The beach was cool and breezy during our stay, but the fenced yard was warm and sunny! Wish we could have stayed longer. Kim was very easy to work with and responded to my inquiries promptly. Thanks for a wonderful vacation. Loved the stained glass door! These sisters know how to do it right.

perfect bungalo for our family

  • 5 of 5

Perfect bungalow. The owners left a lovely basket to greet us. It was a perfect home for our small family. We loved walking to the beach & driving to the boardwalk area. The yard was perfect & relaxing, kids loved s'mores and eating outside. Thank you for sharing your home.

Wonderful Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5

To Sisters,

We would like to let you know how very much we enjoyed our stay at your beautiful cottage. Wonderful accommodation and convenience. Well-stocked beach stuff such as unbrellas, towels, chairs, cooler, BBQ grill, and s'mores! Nice enclaved front yard with grass for playing games and eating outside. Walking to the harbor and beach is Plus A+. We shall recommend this cottage to friends and family. Thank you for sharing your sweet home with us!

Fabulous Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I and our 3 children rented this wonderful house for a week. The house accommodated us quite comfortably. The yard is a real plus and became the hub for evening gatherings for family members who were staying in other Santa Cruz locations. Two block walk to the Santa Cruz beach which has great amenities. Enjoyed happy hour at the Crow's Nest and coffee at Java Junction. Some of our adventures included surf lessons for the kids, zip-lining at Mt Hermon, a trip to Pacific Grove, shopping in downtown Santa Cruz and Capitola Village. Great weather and no humidity!

We would definitely rent this property in the future.

Terrific time as a family in Santa Cruz

  • 5 of 5

Thank you to Kim and Pam for opening up your Santa Cruz cottage to us! It was quaint, clean, convenient and perfect to relax outside and enjoy the beach life. We wished we stayed longer. The beach wagon, chairs and sand stuff were great for the short jaunt down to the beach. Great beach spot to body surf, dig and watch the sailboats. We went to whole foods and mostly ate in. House well equipped for this with a great grill and who can forget the chiminea for snores and the hammock for naps. Our stay made a great memory!
