Great stay on Beach Hill
We love life in a simple Santa Cruz bungalow and this fit the bill to a T. Morning sunshine on the front porch was especially wonderful. You can't always beat the fog but we were lucky!
Great Location, needs upgraded inside
Coffee maker has had better days! Furniture old and walls and trim wood need redone.comfortable bed except for the noisy garbage truck at 5:30AM on Monday and a different noisy vehicle on Tuesday morning. Single pane windows don’t help. We have rented VRBO many times and the cost for three nights this is by far the highest price for the least received. Location great but not the unit for us.
Richard, thank you for your feedback. This homeowner has asked us to pass along the following response:
"Thank you for taking the time to write a review. As for the furniture, the only furniture that has not been purchased within the last 5 years (besides the antique vanity) is the solo chair in the living room, which will be replaced soon. The coffee maker was replaced immediately after your wife left a note informing me it was on the blink. That information was much appreciated. As for the garbage trucks, I am going to put a warning note in the welcome book so there are no surprises for future guests. I do wish they came at a different time myself! Paint is on the schedule for the offseason!"
Best, the Evolve Team
Great for a young couple...but ...
This is a very good property for folks who want to be at the beach and boardwalk, not so great if your activities take you elsewhere and you don't have a car...Also perhaps not so great for an older woman attending a marital arts seminar....neighborhood is very noisy due to the boardwalk (continuous roller coaster screaming and loud stadium rock), has no laundry facilities, and feels a little "exposed' due to closeness of neighbors, window coverings that are not quite private and large windows which offer lovely breezes and easy access to the cottage. Feels a little less than fully safe...The owner was very nice, offered reassurances and was flexible on the schedule which was appreciated.
Robin, we're sorry your stay fell short of your expectations. We aim to build our listings in the most detailed light, which is why we include over 20 photos and a map with the location of the home. We also don't advertise this home as offering a laundry facility. This way future guests know what to expect, but we're sorry if this caught you off guard. The close location to the boardwalk is why the majority of the renters choose this location. However, we're sorry you didn't enjoy this family-friendly location. The owner strives to provide excellent guest experiences, and we're glad you enjoyed your interaction with them. Thanks for taking the time to leave your review. Best, the Evolve Team
Short family trip.
This place is really cute, very clean and convenient. I would recommend this place and I would stay here again.
Great cottage close to everything
We had such a great time. Everything was just as the listing described.
