We love this home because it is open and filled with sunshine. In addition, the beach is, family friendly, never crowded and allows for walking miles in both directions and/or playing in the ocean. We also love the location, which provides easy access to both Santa Cruz City and Monterey.
Joe's rental turned out great for our family. The house is clean and well maintained as well as spacious. The layout is very flexible and the kitchen is well supplied. The weather wasn't great but if it is better next time, we will be making more use of the deck and bbq. The neighbors were friendly and we even had an Easter egg hunt in the community garden behind the house (which is gorgeous)! We used the house as a base for day trips to the Santa Cruz Boardwalk and the Monterey Bay Aquarium and a pick-your-own strawberry adventure (two toddlers along with us). The house was an outstanding value all around.
We were looking for a central location for a family Christmas celebration. Joe's house served our needs with ample space and seating. Joe worked with us on an early check-in to get a head start on food preparation. It is a great location with a paved stairs/path to the beach. The house is loaded with amenities like towels, linen, appliances and pots and pans. Everything functioned to our expectations and everyone had a great time. A few gift packages didn't arrive prior to our departure, so Joe worked with us to retrieve all packages. I would like to thank Joe for his hospitality and would definitely recommend his house if you're looking for a great beach experience.
Spacious home near the beach was perfect for my sisters and I taking our mom for a getaway weekend for her 92nd birthday. It's a very comfortable 2 story home with plenty of parking for the three vehicles we had since I brought Mom and my 2 sisters met us there - two car driveway and street parking is available. Joe responded to questions quickly and there was good information in the listing with HomeAway. I really would not recommend this particular house to someone taking the average 92-year-old parent with them as you really have to walk between upstairs and downstairs frequently because the kitchen and main living area is upstairs and the walk to the beach is on quite an incline and has more stairs. But our mom is very healthy and ambulatory for her age so just watching her carefully and "spotting" her in these areas worked well. It's a very spacious home for a family desiring comfortable accommodations in a house near the beach and I would highly recommend it. We took Mom to birthday dinner one night at Bittersweet Bistro and thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend. We had a fun weekend celebrating Mom and she enjoyed it immensely.
We had a good experience with this home. It was clean and served our needs for six of us. The only problem we had was with the entry keypad but, once we figured it out it was OK
I booked this house for a Birthday celebration for my 4 yr old grandson to take a ride on the train at Roaring Camp but used the first few days to host a girlfriend trip with 2 of my friends, so when my girlfriends left my family arrived. This house was perfect for both. We did have an unusual event happen during our stay. The Beach was having what the locals call a "Red Tide" or Algae Bloom brought on by La Nina so we couldn't enjoy the Beach or take walks along the tide as it was covered in a strange foam. Everything else was great. We shopped and dined and rode the train and had some great evenings in cooking up pasta dinners for family and wine and cheese for friends. You can also see the waves crashing and enjoy some gorgeous sunsets sitting at the kitchen table or out on the deck. Very comfortable home and very spacious! Love the nearby grocery store, Deluxe Foods and also enjoyed Westeria for shopping if you are a gardener! Great lunches at Cafe Cruz and Westend Tap and Kitchen.
We stayed at this property for a nearby wedding. It was the perfect gathering place to enjoy family and friends. Lots of room and a wonderful deck with views. Very relaxing!
Other Activities: kayaking, Excellent location for a visit to Monterey Bay Aquarium one day and Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk the next. Home is conveniently located between Santa Cruz and Monterey/Carmel area.
