Santa Cruz House Rental Photos and Description

Very close to the beach! 2br/2ba

Second house from the sand! Walking distance from restaurants, nightlife, cafes, sailboat/kayak rental, beach volleyball, and more. The place also has a spacious patio with ocean view and a BBQ. Listen to the sounds of the beach while barbequing.

This beach property is located just 50 footsteps to one of the family friendly and picturesque beaches in Santa Cruz. Twin Lakes Beach is a gorgeous sandy beach with nearby restaurants and a coffee shop. There are local venues for entertainment and fire pits on the beach at night. We have added a lot of our own personal touches to the place--we are especially fond of our 'beach glass' floor before the den. We have heard that the place has a real 'beachy' and local Santa Cruz vibe to it.

Why Kate and Dave chose Santa Cruz County

We really wanted a little getaway in Santa Cruz where we could get away from it all and just relax. This place was perfect! It has a patio deck, putting green hole, and a little croquet set in the backyard! It is an inviting bungalow with lots to do and steps from the beach.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

House was a great location! Very close to the beach and we could walk to many places. The Crow's Nest was very yummy to eat at. The sleeping arrangements of the house worked out great. Lots of space for just the 6 of us! Highly recommend!

A beachside dream!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful property. The house is nicely decorated and stocked with essentials. The side studio was great when our little one went to sleep; mom and dad could enjoy a glass of wine without worrying about waking him. There are plenty of beach toys and chairs available, and with the beach less than 400 feet away you will need them! Plus our two year old has found an interest in golf having explored the front yard putting green every day. We would not only want to stay again, but could see this beach house become a family tradition each summer :-)

Beautiful beach home

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here greatly. It was well furnished and equipped. Plenty of extra linens and all of the essentials were present. The owners were easy to reach and responded quickly to our needs. Just steps away from the beach, we plan to be back. Thank you!

Location! Location! Location!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this home. It's very clean, tidy and roomy. The location is ideal - close to a nice beach, restaurants and small market. The famous Crow's Nest is walking distance and has excellent food, view & entertainment. 7th Street is a bit busy but it didn't bother us.

Thanks Kate & Dave! We had a great time.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks Kate and made our stay in Santa Cruz easy and relaxing. Your vacation home was clean and fresh (being so close to the water). There was plenty of room (almost two places in one). There were only four adults and a baby staying, but since we were in Santa Cruz in June for our son's graduation there was room to host dinners (another six people). We BBQ's on the patio every night. We easily walked to the beach (just across the street) and longer walks to the harbor. We have visited Santa Cruz a lot while our son attended college...wish we had done this before. Mike & Rosie
