Central location! Walk 50 feet from the front door and you're on the beach. Bike or walk a few blocks south and you're on the beautiful bluffs above Pleasure Point, a popular oceanfront trail overlooking world class surfing, accessing coves and tide pools or just people watching. You'll certainly see surfers but, quite possibly, a pod of dolphins, a family of sea otters, or, perhaps, migrating whales making their annual journey. More adventurous souls can surf (or take a lesson), skin or scuba dive, kayak, stand-up paddle board or just explore the area, picnic or ride bikes.
Within a 5-10 minute drive (or a 15 minute bike ride), you are at the famous Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, the quaint beach side resort of Capitola Village or downtown Santa Cruz's Pacific Avenue, home of boutique shops, restaurants and world-class entertainment.

Could of have been 5 stars if the hot tub worked. Can't beat the view and the proximity to Santa Cruz
Not sure why you feel hot tub wasn't working. Spa tech checked/added chemicals fri, 9/8, and spa was working properly, I checked today, 9/12, and spa worked properly. Wish you would've contacted myself or local tech to resolve your issue
Loved the location and the View!!!
Would have given the place 5 stars except we were plagued with tiny ants for 2 of the 3 days. I spent a couple of hours spraying and cleaning up dead ants and then spraying again and then cleaning up dead ants. Location of house is perfect for the beach that was uncrowded. Loved watching surfers from the deck and ocean waves. Lots of towels and supplies for cooking. The ants were in a couple of cupboards and were in the sugar container.
Our family has rented vacation houses for the past 15+ years and this one is top of the list. From the fully stocked kitchen to the very well appointed living areas (bedrooms, bathrooms, etc.).
The location is incredible (views of the pacific and access to 26th street beach)! The property manager (Kerstin) is very responsive and she has everything covered from beach chairs to spices in the kitchen. Great place and we highly recommend it!
I've been renting accommodation in Santa Cruz for many years, including hotels, B&B's, apartments, condos, and houses. I have to say that Villa Vista is the best of the best. We rented the upstairs apartment, and it suited our family, perfectly. Diverse ages, ranging from 14 months, to 65 years old; and various degrees of activity ... everyone had a wonderful time, whether surfing, playing on the beach, or simply sitting on the deck with a glass of wine, soaking in the views. Property manager, Kerstin, is very responsive, and helpful. We are happy to recommend VV as a most excellent ocean front Santa Cruz getaway, and are already planning a couple of 2016 sojourns.
Villa Vista is a paradise for both surfers and non-surfers alike
Villa Vista is a paradise for both surfers and non-surfers alike. The upstairs unit has sweeping ocean views overlooking several sought after Santa Cruz breaks. The surf is just a few steps from the door. There is a luxurious outdoor warm-water shower to rinse off and plenty of storage for your gear. For the non-surfers in your group, the Villa Vista is an amazing retreat from the ordinary.
The breathtaking 270° views are augmented by the gallery-worthy paintings depicting beach scenes hung throughout the home. It is very calming and allows one a privileged vantage point for watching the surfers and those on the beach from a place of privacy and comfort.
The bleached wood ceilings, furnishings, skylights, wrap-around deck and expansive windows somehow transform the interior space to remain bright, cheerful and cozy even on the foggiest of days. Although hard to drag yourself away from the windows and the mesmerizing views they afford, all of the necessary conveniences are only a minute's drive away. Incredibly scenic walking and biking trails abound. Villa vista is indeed a wonderful private sanctuary not to be missed!
Family tradition continues
My family has been enjoying Santa Cruz for the last four generations. This pass weekend we stayed in the upstairs unit of Villa Vista and our family enjoyed the million dollar view and the comfortable living area along with the three bedroom - three bath - everyone had room to spare. We enjoyed watching the surfers and families on the beach by day and the glowing fires at night. Villa Vista is our favorite spot and we look forward to many more stays in the future. Thank you Kerstin! Joey and family
