Why Nicole Sanchez chose Beach Hill / Beach Flats
We have always loved Santa Cruz and have so many wonderful memories here. We fell in love with this historic landmark Victorian and are excited for you to build your own memories here.
What makes this House unique
So close to the beach and the wonderful dining, shopping and culture downtown. We feel like we don't even need a car living here. It is in the center of everything and a nice luxurious retreat where you can kick back with plenty of room and all the amenities that make it feel like home. Boogie boards, beach towels, wetsuits, games are at your disposal.

A look back in history!
Close walk to everything. Wonderful equipped kitchen - don't have to bring anything but you food. We loved the house and talked about how fun it would be to look back in time. All beds were very comfortable and private. House very well maintained. We all loved the time we spent there and didn't want to leave!
We are delighted that you had such a wonderful time! We always wish that the walls could talk too. :) We hope you stay at Victorian By The Sea again soon.
Beautiful Home & Great Location
Definitely a great experience.
Great beach weekend!
The house is walking distance to the Boardwalk and the wharf! Perfectly located if you dont mind a short walk. The driveway fits two large cars or three regular sized cars along with one street parking permit. The beds were all comfortable. The bedrooms share a bathroom so heads up if you prefer more privacy than that. It was not a problem except that when you went to close both sliding doors, you may wake up the people in the next room that share the bathroom with you. So heads up if you're travelling with a baby you want to keep asleep. The living room and dining room space are large and allow for everyone to dine together. We enjoyed the flat screen TV after a long day at the beach. Nicole was kind enough to message us that the home was ready before check-in and that we were welcome to check in early. There is someone that lives downstairs but the stairs that lead downstairs are closed off. The tub in one of the bathrooms can be a little tricky for older customers, but there is a regular shower in the other bathroom available. We enjoyed our stayed and appreciated the beach getaway with the family. Very clean home with a fun secret door :)
Thank you for the lovely detailed review. We are so very glad that you enjoyed the home and hope that you can stay at Victorian by the Sea again!
Perfect home in perfect location

We are so glad that you had a great time! We hope that you stay at Victorian By The Sea again soon.
Santa Cruz beach house
Great house. Great location. Great Nieghbors. Property was exactly what was advertised
You were wonderful guests! We hope that you stay at Victorian By The Sea again.
2 very short blocks (1 minute walk) and you are at the Santa Cruz Main Beach and next to the wharf and Boardwalk. Walk 8 minutes the other way and you are downtown for fantastic dining, shopping, movies and more. Fun stuff: 1. Free Wednesday Night Movies on the beach
- This is a blast. Just go down to the left of the bandstand (you can tell where the screen will go (if you want a super good spot close up) in the later afternoon and put a blanket or sheet out and then show up for the movie that starts at 9pm. Bring warm clothes and blankets to stay cozy.
2. Free Friday Night Concerts on the beach. Access to the prime seating area begins at 4 p.m.; no blankets or chairs are permitted in the roped off areas before 4 p.m. The line formed on the beach will be given first priority at prime area seating. You can put a chair or blanket in line early in the day and then show up at 3:45 to get your spot. Then you can leave until the show starts at 6:30. This is only necessary if you want to get the super good seating.
At the beach in front of the Dream Inn you can often find the Club Ed and they rent surf boards, wetsuits and give surf or Stand Up Paddling lessons too. Cowell's Surf shop is right across the street and rents all of that kind of thing too.
