Why Jaleh chose Santa Cruz County

LOCATION! One of the few homes right on the Sand. Walking distance to the Cement Ship, Cafe Rio, Pixie Plaza and more. One of the few vacation homes in the Area where a car is not needed. Just bring your party to the beach and don't move!

The Perfect Beach House

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your wonderful beach house with our family. This is the perfect beach getaway, very comfortable with an at home feel. The house is decorated with all the beach themed artwork and accessories. Love the private patio that a lot of the other homes do not have...a definite perk! Can not wait to come back!

Thanksgiving on the beach!!!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving on the beach!! The views from this house and deck are awesome!!! It was very comfortable for 6 of us! The house was clean and had everything we needed for our stay! We celebrated Thanksgiving with 28 friends and relatives at a larger home on the same street. The weather was warm and sunny so we were able to have our Thanksgiving dinner outside!!! It was convenient to walk back and forth and lots of fun for kids and even the grandparents! We recommend this property and would love to return! The owners were very nice and helpful!!

Charming Home-Right on the Beach

  • 5 of 5

Review #16263524 “Right on the Beach! Ocean view from every bedroom! *Ask for WINTER SPECIAL*”

Charming Home-Right on the Beach

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

I stayed with my family in this charming home. It was perfect for a quiet, relaxing retreat. The views are great since it sits right on the beach. Every room boasts a terrific view. We found the home to be neat, clean, and charmingly decorated. The home is exactly as the pictures show. Everything that we needed was right there.

The owner was professional, responsive, and a pleasure to work with. She provided us with all the information that we needed for a pleasant stay, including detailed instructions for checkin and checkout.

My entire family had a great time. The kids enjoyed the beach, and my wife and I loved the views.

We all want to return to this house for our next beach vacation!

I would like to comment on the negative 2 star review that was posted by another guest shortly before our stay. We also own rental property, and rent through VRBO, and I can recognize a hit piece from nightmare tenants when I see one.

Virtually every negative point they made is false, based on our experience. This is a house, not an apartment. It is double the size they state, and it indeed sits right on the beach. This series of homes was built around the 1930s-1940s, so they are not modern mansions, but that is part of their charm. This home is well cared for, professionally cleaned, and decorated with an eye toward making our stay comfortable. The owner is professional, and easy to work with. Anyone not finding her so, and insulting her on a review must have been a nightmare tenant. We followed her posted checkout instructions and already have our deposit back.

I would definitely return to this property, and are planning our next beach vacation!
