Overall wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

Our friend families(11 adults) planned for a weekend and spent 2 whole day in this beach house. All of us enjoyed the house and deck beach view. Enjoyed to the core!!!...

With few things to share with others,

1) Property details mentioned 11 adults to accommodate, but we saw only 10 beds. Somehow we managed since its just 2 days.

2) House has 2 bunker beds without ladder, so it was difficult to access the top bed.

Other than above 2 minor things, its really worth for money & spending time with friends/families.

Enjoy your stay!!!!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and as discussed at check out you missed the second couch bed in the main living room for the 11/12 guests. Yes there are no ladders for the bunks as there is no room for them but the top bunk is easily accessable from stepping on the ends of the bunks as there are holes/pockets. We look forward to the possibility of working with you again in the near future. Thank you again! Kendall & Potter Vacation Staff

The view! The view! THE VIEW! That in itself made this place amazing!

We stayed here with some girlfriends and it was just perfect. The place is well maintained, updated and beautiful and we didn't want to leave. There was something wrong with the cable tv but we didn't care because we were always outside.

The bedrooms were great, enough room for everyone and we even had someone sleep in the room without a door and she said she loved it: her own private space. The kitchen is insanely well stocked, which is funny because the site says to bring your items and we really didn't need to. We cooked all meals but one in the house, super easy.

The beach is right there and the sound of the waves ... it was the best place to be. I already miss it and now we're planning on coming back for another birthday. Thank you for such a wonderful weekend!

Such a Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a five day stay at this property. And it was AMAZING! We loved the location and how it fit everyone so nicely. There were four families and everyone had room. The pictures make the condo look bigger than it actually is, however there are tons of storage areas for luggage and beach items so it wasn't a big deal. The kitchen was great for cooking meals and we enjoyed the BBQ on the patio to make dinner a couple of nights. We really enjoyed the fact that the condo is right on the beach. You just walk out onto the downstairs deck and the stairs take you right to the sand. Such a great feature for us as we were able to watch the kiddos building sand castles from our deck. We enjoyed nightly beach bon-fires from the fire ring that is just right out from the condo. La Selva Beach is a great location as it's away from all the traffic and congestion of the touristy areas. We pretty much had the beach to ourselves the entire Memorial Day weekend. It's a good 20+ minute drive to Santa Cruz and the Boardwalk but it's worth it to be away from it all.

The wi-fi worked great and we even enjoyed the Smart TV's throughout the house. It's not very often you get a smart TV with a vacation rental.

We enjoyed gorgeous sunrises and sunsets everyday from our deck. Gorgeous 180 degree ocean views that made us never want to leave. We even saw different pods of dolphins and whales frolicking up and down the coast each day we were there. And on one day the whales were actually jumping out of the water. It was quite something to see! And even better that we didn't have to pay for a whale excursion, get sea sick, or leave our condo!

As a side note, there are a TON of stairs. Three levels in the condo and then another two levels down to the sand so if you aren't good with stairs you might want to think twice about this location. Other than that it's fantastic!!! We'll definitely be back!

Perfect place to celebrate "Life" and reflect on the blessings of family.....

  • 5 of 5

In December of 2013 we had spent a lovely family vacation celebrating our parents 46th anniversary at La Selva Beach. We couldn't stop talking about how fun it was. Then 2 months later my parents were in a horrible car accident, my Mother died & Dad lived after a 5 week stay in hospital. We've had a rough year grieving and new roles in care giving to my father with a traumatic brain injury. When the year anniversary of my mothers passing was insight, we wanted to celebrate her life & my Dad's survival at the last place we all were together. We decided to choose a different rental property from our 2013 trip. We returned to La Selva beach & was blessed with this property! We needed some special accommodations for my Dad & this place had 98% of them!!

The property was clean(no musty odors), spacious & a great floor plan for families or groups! The four full bathrooms was a luxury that accommodated everyone's needs! Even though were at the beach with gorgeous multi coloured sunsets, having two great Smart TVs was a great for night time down time! We used both decks & appreciated the safe and sturdy steps to the beach(approximately 30) for elderly father & 4 year old!! Beds were surprisingly comfy with fresh smelling linens & plenty of fresh towels. We also loved having the beverage fridge! There was sand toys, boogie boards, a fishing pole and chairs....only a few things that would improve this 5 star property! We had some warm weather & it was very, very hot with only one ceiling fan and a/c didn't keep up until natures A/C kicked in the P.M. Some little fans would be helpful! The bunk beds didn't have a ladder that we could find. If you ARENT an early riser or require an afternoon nap...the master bedroom brings in the beautiful sunlight bright, early & thru-out the day! Acceptance of Pets, my dad missed his little comfort companion!

We all left our trip wishing we could have stayed longer! The partial week was picked for us because of a traumatic family loss, yet we were blessed with a beautiful property, beach and weather! It was such a great place to grieve, heal & then CELEBRATE life and family. There really isnt a better place to do so. We had had so much planned for our days, but enjoyed ourselves so much we never left the house & beach! We now have something POSITIVE to look forward to each year as we mark another year without one parent, but appreciate the survival of another. Thank you for a lovely time in a place that felt like home!

Owner's Response: So sorry to hear about your mother, but we are very happy your dad pulled through! We are glad you enjoyed your stay! The sunsets are amazing there! Such a great view from both decks.The smart TVs are great, it's nice that there are two of them; one for the adults and one for the children! We'll suggest getting some fans. None of our properties in Santa Cruz have A/C; since it is not necessary. Usually there is nice, cool sea breeze if you just open the sliding doors. However, it was especially beautiful and hot that weekend without a breeze to speak of! A ladder for the bunk beds is a great idea, we'll see about getting one. Unfortunately it is an Homeowner's Association rule that does not permit pets at our vacation rentals, so we cannot change that...
