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.

Thanks Kim your cottage is so comfortable and clean. We enjoyed everything from the s'mores to the gas fireplace. Absolutely loved all the amenities it had to offer, especially the beautiful front yard.

Family recharge

  • 5 of 5

So, I'm not usually one for writing reviews (this is my first one) but wanted to make an exception here as my family and I had such a fabulous time.

From initially requesting the booking on VRBO through to our arrival and the cottage itself everything was great. Kim is so easy to work with, and welcoming. When we arrived there were S'mores ingredients for the kids and treats for the dog. Kids were ecstatic! The cottage is adorable. The yard is PERFECT, especially as it is completely fenced in, and the beach is just down the road.

Having arrived back home I think we've all put this vacation down as our best ever, Kim, Pam and their beautiful property played a big part in that.

We will definitely be back!

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 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.
