Overview

Santa Cruz Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Charming and sunny cottage one block from Santa Cruz's best beach. Lovely 5 minute walk from our quiet street to the Yacht Harbor and its many waterview restaurants and activities.

Experience all that Santa Cruz has to offer in this cheerful, spacious and relaxing updated Craftsman bungalow from another era. Enjoy dining inside on the comfortable expandable 4-6 person kitchen table or outdoors on the warm sunny deck overlooking the beautiful flowering garden. Relax in the hot tub while gazing at the stars and breathing in the sea air. The cottage features 2 bedrooms with Queen size beds and ensuite full bathrooms on opposite ends of the house offering complete privacy.

Twin Lakes Beach, the local's favorite, is a block away. It's a wide sunny strand, perfect for sunning, body surfing or just taking in the view of the lighthouse, passing sailboats and wildlife. The house comes equipped with everything you need for a perfect day at the beach-boogie boards, beach chairs and beach towels.

You can have a great time without ever getting in your car. Strolling to the beach, dining at local restaurants. dancing to live music at the Crows Nest or sailing, kayaking or stand up paddling at the Yacht Harbor.

Within a 10 minute drive or a slightly longer cruise on our vintage tandem bike, enjoy the historic Santa Cruz Boardwalk, surfing at world famous Pleasure Point, the lovely beachside village of Capitola or lively downtown Santa Cruz. with it's many store, cafes, movie theaters, street musicians and quirky Surf City personaility.

Venture a little further and there is wine tasting, mountain biking and hiking. Monterey and Carmel are just a scenic 45 minute drive away on Highway 1.

Close to the beach, this home has a great layout and vibe!

Nancy was a great hostess. She made sure that we had everything that we needed to check in, and upon arrival, there was a binder with further information about the area. The home is basically on the beach...so close! When you walk in, you're in the living area. On one side of the living area is a bedroom with a full bath and washer dryer in it and on the other side of the living area is the kitchen and then the master bedroom with a full bath in it. It was perfect for our family of 4...and Nancy even provided a pack-n-play for us so that we didn't have to rent one or figure out the sleeping situation for our newborn :) I would definitely stay here again. Oh, and she refunded my deposit less than 12 hours from check-out. Highly recommend!

Lovely Cottage with great location

  • 5 of 5

My husband, son and I stayed in the cottage for a week and had a great time. It's well maintained and and has a cute outdoor space to dine. We really loved being able to walk to the beach. Nancy was really thoughtful leaving us a bottle of wine to start our vacation. The house has all the necessities for making dinner and we really loved going to the Crows Nest for a meal -- that view!! We can't wait to return.

Amazing Cottage, Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I book this vacation cottage for a 3 day weekend. The place was lovely, clean, very well maintained, and well decorated. We both loved the place and would definitely recommend this place to our friends. The place has a cute outdoor space, we loved having breakfast outside with the sound/smell of the ocean. There was a beautiful beach a few blocks away and we were able to walk to and from the boardwalk. There is also great restaurants in walking distance as well, one of my favorites is the Crows Nest. We would definitely stay here again!!!

Fantastic cottage, perfect stay!

  • 5 of 5

The place was bigger than the photos make it out to be, it's a good size house, and perfect for me and my two daughters. It is exactly as it is described and the place is very clean and very well maintained. It was such a treat for us to be so close to the beach. We didn't even venture to any other beaches, Twin Lakes had everything we needed for our stay. We used the Radio Flyer cart to take our things down to the beach and across the sand, that was great! so we could bring extra chairs and a cooler etc. Nancy was a pleasure to deal with and was super fast in returning the safety deposit. always a plus! Thank you for a wonderful stay!
