This spectacular beach front house sits right on the sand, enjoying wide-open views of the sailors and surfers out on Monterey Bay. Check in, soak in the hot tub and watch the waves break on the beach. Barbecue your dinner down at the garden patio, then dine outdoors on the picnic deck, all without taking your eyes off the entrancing view. This great family home has an extra large, fully-equipped kitchen with a huge dining table that easily seats eight. Take your ease in the porch swing or hammock. Plan your adventures on the iMac computer with broadband WiFi Internet service. Clean up with outdoor shower, dishwasher, washer, and dryer. Then head out for the great Santa Cruz nightlife, or chill at home with the widescreen TV and HDTV cable service with DVR and blu-ray player. Walk to the Aloha Grill or the Taqueria Michoacan. Walk to the farmer's market. Warm up by the chimenea. Wonder where the week went so fast. Better make it two weeks next time.
Beach Access : This house is located at the edge of the beach, where it is protected from wave erosion by rip-rap. Beach access varies from season to season, depending mainly on the effect of winter storms on the sand level and lagoon location. This spring (as of April 2017) there is direct access to the beach right in front of the house, by climbing down over the rip-rap about 10 feet. If you are not spry, then we recommend the public stairs one block away.
Parking: You can easily fit three cars in the driveway, and one more by parking valet-style. The nearest on-street parking is two blocks away.
Internet and computer: We provide broadband Internet access and an iMac computer for web surfing, email, etc. You can also connect your own laptop computer with our WiFi router.
Phone: We provide free calling on our Ooma phone. You may also use our wifi for IP calling, if your cell phone supports that. Cell service is marginal.
