Overview

About the property

Designer Home, Oceanview, Steps to Twin Lakes beach, Hot tub, Wifi. near Harbor

Santa Cruz Ocean View Home: Located only one block from the beach, this is a two-story, designer home with an open-architecture style and cathedral type ceilings. Big windows and a gridwork of glass allows in plenty of light. The upstairs bedroom opens to a private deck from where you can view the ocean. Downstairs, a large wraparound deck, bathed in sunshine overlooks a stunning garden filled with beautiful plants and rocks and a bevy of doves, finches, blue-jays and red-winged blackbirds. Garden lights beam up the trees at night and summer nights provide an occasion to sit in the hot tub and enjoy the clear starry nights in complete privacy.

This home sleeps 6 with two bedrooms, a large open living space (living room & kitchen), one large bathroom and plenty of patios. The living room has a sofa and a comfortable chaise that can double as sleepers. The upstairs bedroom has a queen bed and a day-bed, comfortably sleeping three. There is also a single stowaway bed and a foam mattress to use on the floor. The tropical secluded backyard has a large wraparound deck, a hot-tub with two chaise lounge-chairs, an outdoor hot & cold shower, a BBQ and a marble-top dining table & chairs.

Why Shyamal chose Santa Cruz

One of the very rare, spacious lots on the street, it has two magnificent trees, a large wraparound deck, spacious backyard with tropical plants and a uniquely-styled house with cathedral ceilings. It was originally built in the 70's with recycled wood from a barn in Iowa, giving the house beautiful definition and an impressive beam structure. Finally, it is located in the most desireable parts of Santa Cruz, just steps from Twin Lakes beach and a short walk to the Harbor.

Unlike many beach dwellings (that feel cramped), this large lot offers plenty of room for a spacious home (1400sqft), a large wraparound deck (600sqft) and a sizeable garden providing one of the best indoor-outdoor living in Santa Cruz.

In addition, the unique cathedral ceilings, open-concept living area and large windows fill the house with light, providing a spacious and warm welcoming feeling. It is so close to the ocean that you can see it from the doorstep.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I have stayed at Seaside Haven in 2008 and 2011.

The garden at Seaside Haven is magical. A spacious deck wraps around

the back of the house. A few steps down the garden wraps around the

deck, replete with huge jade plants and wildflowers. Ensconced in the

deck is an ample hot tub/ Jacuzzi. Lying there one has perfect

privacy, and looking up one sees the branches of a huge cypress tree

arching over from the garden. The house is magical also – all dark

wood with a high cathedral ceiling. Step out the front door, look

left, and one sees the sea shining in the near distance. Open a

window upstairs and one hears the surf. For me, Seaside Haven is the

heart of Santa Cruz. LB (Vermont and New York)

Great place to stay to get away

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed here twice now and have enjoyed it immensely. Nice and cozy and able to hear the ocean and sea-lions.

Lovely Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is a very comfortable and attractive house, with a large nicely planted and private yard,.

My dog and I and a friend spent 6 days here before Christmas. The beach in this part of Santa Cruz is wide and beautiful, a block and a half walk away. The owner is available on short notice, and very accommodating, he even went out and bought a Roku so we could watch our favorite shows. The cottage is beautifully decorated, had everything we needed.

Very enjoyable getaway,!!

perfect spot to unwind

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this classic beach bungalow. The house is comfortable and well stocked with everything you need for a vacation in Santa Cruz and the surrounding area. The beach at the end of this quiet neighborhood has a nice break for boggie boarding and easy surfing. The garden is lovely for reading and soaking in the hot tub. Kitchen is well stocked with supplies and the beds are cozy and comfortable.

We can't wait to find a reason to come back soon.

We are coming back!

  • 5 of 5

We are five best friends who take an annual trip every spring together. We just booked this house for the second year in a row and it might become our tradition! The kitchen and living room areas had plenty of room for all of us, the beds were comfortable, and the hot tub and yard are so peaceful. Plus the beach at the end of the block was great! Last year we didn't use a car the whole weekend; I imagine this year will be the same :)
