Great property for a group of people to enjoy all of what Santa Cruz has to offer

  • 5 of 5

Great property for a group and very close to the coastal walking / biking trails. Property has more fun things than you will have time to take advantage of: bikes, surfboards, hot tub, ping pong table, not to mention a healthy supply of good movie DVDs and a great tv / sound system. The main floor, which is actually the second floor is much more spacious and panoramic than the pictures give credit for.

Great property and location

  • 5 of 5

Myself and a group of friends stayed here for a mountain biking trip over a long weekend. With the large open floorplan, balcony and location with the beach close by, we had a fabulous time, and really enjoyed the house. It also helps that the owner seems like a great guy.

Easy home to share with friends near the water.

  • 5 of 5

Great open room with kitchen, living and dining all open to each other. Three bedrooms to easily sleep 3 couples and another bedroom with bunk beds for kids or singles. Well appointed, easy to hang out and two blocks from the water. Bonus, old school arcade game machine that had any number of us entertained during an off season rainy weekend. Close to downtown and many other restaurants and shops, easy access to groceries. We will likely be back again!

Gorgeous house and perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We had a women's get-together and we enjoyed our restful time there. The house was gorgeous and everything met our needs! The kitchen was perfect, the meeting space was huge, the view of the ocean was beautiful, the hot tub was fun, and we got to use the bikes. They have surfboards too (wavestorms). The location is so close to the ocean, Steamers Lane, Mitchell's Cove, and Natural Bridges. A head's up: The walls are a little thin, so if you're the first one up (like me), any movement you make may wake other people up, so bring some ear plugs.

Can't beat the location, family friendly, and great owners.

  • 5 of 5

The location is just a block off west cliff drive, a short distance to the lighthouse. The kids loved the back yard, the arcade games, and movie selection. The rooms were well laid out, temperature was perfect throughout, perfect for our three families. The hot tub, outdoor shower, beach cruisers, and plenty of beach essentials makes this rental a no brainier. Dan the owner was great, friendly and easy to communicate with. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.
