Perfect Beach House Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

From beginning to end the rental experience was great. Dan & Kristin were very responsive with communications when I first inquired about the rental. The beach house was perfect for our family vacation that consisted ages 10 - 75. We selected the house because the reviews stated it was in a great location- a short walk to the beaches and a hike to the boardwalk. It was also close to shopping (Safeway, restaurants, Marianne's ice cream) and a short drive to some beautiful hiking trails. Other reviews accurately described the amenities that house had everything for everyone and then some. They had plenty of beach towels, extra blankets etc. We enjoyed the bikes and boogies boards to the fun selection of DVDs. The kids absolutely loved the hot tub and the Great room(plenty of room at the dinner table) ....wish we had this at home!!! Grown ups had ping pong challenges and a throwback to our youth playing Centipede and Asteroids in the Gameroom. Only downside was the stairs so I wouldn't be able to bring my mom who needs accessibility. Other than that the 10 day stay we had at the beach house was a very fun and memorable time for our family. They want to make this a summer tradition! Thanks Dan and Kristin providing such a fantastic summer beach getaway for the family! I would recommend this rental wholeheartedly!

Perfect vacation house

  • 5 of 5

For two consecutive years, we vacationed with our kids and grandkids in Dan's house in Santa Cruz. The house itself is incredibly comfortable, spacious, and perfect for families. Dan has it set up beautifully, with a kitchen fully stocked with everything we needed. The house also has lots of games and puzzles, bikes for riding along the coast, a well-maintained hot tub, ping pong table, great tv (we watched the final two games of the Warriors/Cavs NBA finals series... :( )etc. etc. Everything is immaculately clean and works. We loved the view of the ocean from the main floor as well as the quiet by not being on Cliff Dr. Dan is a very gracious host. Highly recommended.
