Experience a special getaway at this gorgeous four-bedroom Santa Cruz vacation home just blocks from Seabright State Beach! This pet-friendly California beach cottage can be the setting for your group escape to sunny Santa Cruz! Complete with a wood burning fireplace, WiFi, and even Netflix streaming, you'll have everything you need to feel right at home!

From your Seabright Beach Retreat, you can walk right to the Santa Cruz Boardwalk in about 20 minutes and you can be on the sand in only four blocks. You'll have a number of restaurants within walking distance and if you're up for a drive, Carmel Bay and Pebble Beach are about an hour to the south and a day trip to San Francisco takes about a half an hour in the car. Both drives are scenic and gorgeous!

When you stay here, you'll have two floors of comfortable, luxurious living space. Sit in front of the large rock-faced fireplace for a glass of wine at the end of the day or watch movies on the 55-inch flat screen TV. There's also cable and a DVD player for more entertainment possibilities.

Dining options at this Santa Cruz vacation home include a small table in the living room that seats four or a larger, more formal spot with seats for up to eight. You can easily have an adults and a kids table. And in the spacious full kitchen, you'll have major appliances, gadgets, plates, glasses, and more for feeding your whole group.

Outside, the patio area has a seating area and a gas grill for dining al fresco. You'll also have a washer and dryer when you stay here! Four bedrooms boast a beautiful master suite with a king sized bed, peaceful sitting area, and its own bathroom. Dogs are welcome with an additional nightly fee.

This Central California Coast vacation rental is ideal for a family trip, friends traveling together, or even a group holiday retreat! Spend a special occasion in the sun near the sand, instead of bundled up with scarves, gloves, and hats.

Experience laid-back and vibrant Santa Cruz, California with an amazing location right in the middle of everything! Walk to the Santa Cruz Boardwalk, restaurants, museums, and the sandy shoreline at Seabright State Beach when you stay at this lovely Santa Cruz beach home!

About Vacasa, CA - Central California Coast Office

Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers.



Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife’s family’s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website—could be handled by a specialized central support team.



Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home—our team is standing by!

Don't waste your money

  • 1 of 5

The only bright spot about this house is the location to Seabright beach. We rented this house for a family gathering over the Thanksgiving holiday. The carpet was stained and smelled like stale beer. The kitchen had little to no cooking tools and wasn't stocked (coffee filters, dish soap) for our arrival. The house had very poor lighting and no charm. There were no pictures on the reminded me of a college party house. I've rented from VRBO many times but this was a bust and waste of money.

Owner's Response: We are sorry to see this guest was disappointed in the simplistic nature of the house. The carpets will be cleaned during fall deep cleans. Thanks!

It was perfect for our group of ten golfers on our 36th annual reunion

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations were great. Close to Seabright Brewery and a GREAT breakfast place a block away. An easy walk to the beach and clean, comfortable rooms. If only we could figure out a way to stop ten 60 year-old men from snoring (sigh...)

:-0 zzzz

We shared 2 queen beds and 1 king and had four twins. There were also three couches for those who didn't want to share.

Great Location however house needs significant improvements

  • 1 of 5

The location of house was awesome! Only nice thing I can say about house is its location. Everything else about the house was poor. Quality of house and cleanliness and furnishings were very poor. The carpet was very old, dirty and musty. Needed to open all windows and doors to get ventilation to rid house of the musty smell. Overall, felt I paid way too much for the quality of the house.

Owner's Response: We're sorry the home was not as our guest expected. Our Seabright home is a big family and dog friendly home with all the spaces and amenities you need to have a Santa Cruz beach holiday. The furnishings are not luxury, but they are comfortable and homey as we advertise. That said, we plan to do a lot of upgrades on the furniture and bedding this fall.
