1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Baths, Sleeps 4
We are the Talbot family and we live in the East Bay of San Francisco. When we bought our vacation rental our kids were 9 and 12, and we wanted a place we could all have fun. We wanted to embrace the Santa Cruz life style with a beach house style home. I was born and raised in Hawaii and I wanted a home away from home. So the island decor fit perfect with the house location to the surf, beach and the Aloha Grill down the street. The beach, which is a short walk away was perfect for us. It has boogie boarding, surfing, great sand for sand castles and wonderful views. The beach has no public parking so it is inhabited by mostly locals and doesn't get to crowded. Also at night it is a great beach for bonfires.
Lori purchased this House in 2006
Why Lori chose Eastside Santa Cruz
There is nothing like listening to the waves crash on the shore or to watch the sunset. We wanted at place we could all enjoy as a family or with friends. What I have come to enjoy is sharing this house with guest from all over the country and the world. I truly enjoy all the wonderful comments we receive about the house. It has become a special place for many others who have stayed here. It is very comfortable, and relaxing. We try to have everything you would like on vacation at your finger tips. It is a great location for all generations. Not far is the Santa Cruz Boardwalk, which fun for all kids. The beach is great for swimming, catching waves, watching sea life and just taking a walk. We hope you come and stay and experience what we have enjoyed.
What makes this House unique
This house is a perfect place for people who want to spend time at the beach. The beach is only a short block away. It is a beautiful beach and wonderful for long walks and for all types of beach activities. The beach is not a crowded beach and is only for the locals in the area. The house itself is ideal if you are the type that wants to spend the night at home with BBQ on the outside deck with views of the beach, Plasma T.V. and a gourmet kitchen. Or if you like to go out at night the house is located 2 miles from Capitola, which is beach town loaded with lots of restaurants and shops. The Santa Cruz Boardwalk is located 3 miles and has activities for all generations. The benefit to staying at this guest house is the renovations, which allow you to be very comfortable and for the location to everything that Santa Cruz has to offer.

Great Beach Apartment
I travel for work and constantly live out of rental properties and hotels. Everything here was wonderful from Lori and the communication, to the amenities and location. There is no washer and dryer, but I am a long term renter, and this place is well worth it without a washer dryer anyway. Not only would I stay here again, but it was really hard to leave. Thanks
We truly enjoyed having you stay at our guest house. We are looking for guest that want to rent for 30 to 60 days and you were perfect. The place doesn't have a washer and dryer but there is a very convenient laundromat half mile away. We hope you will visit again!
The house is centrally located to all the attractions in Santa Cruz.
Three miles away is the main attraction in Santa Cruz, the California Beach Boardwalk. The boardwalk has rides, events and attractions right on the beach. One mile away is Twin Lakes Beach. There you will find the Yacht Harbor, which offers beach volleyball, kayaks rentals and wonderful restaurants also on the beach. Two miles in the opposite direction is Capitola. Capitola is a quaint beach town, with many restaurants and boutique shops. Pleasure Point, which is a popular surf area and 41st Ave, which is filled with restaurants and surf shops, is 1 mile away.
