About Jewlia Sparks, property manager
We live in Silicon Valley and always wanted a beach house. Sold another rental property to get this house when our daughter was entering her senior year at UCSC. Upon graduation, we converted it to a vacation rental. Love visiting it too, and now that we have young grandchildren, they are eager to visit. We share it with you with pride.
Jewlia Sparks, property manager purchased this House in 2003
Why Jewlia Sparks, property manager chose Eastside Santa Cruz
Looked at 50 homes before selecting this one. Loved the architecture and proximity to the beach.
What makes this House unique
Quiet neighborhood, very nice neighbors, sort of a banana belt weather atmosphere, where fog lifts earlier than elsewhere. Upstairs and downstairs separation great for two families or adults and kids.
no smoking in the house please
1 dog under 35lbs
Minimum age of primary renter:28
This neighborhood is a very quiet family area. Please respect the neighbors. Hot tub/deck hours no later than 9:45 pm. We would appreciate shoes left at the door. There are beautiful refinished hardwood floors.
100% refund for cancellations more than 60 days before check-in date.
Spacious home in a great spot
This home was perfectly sized for my five friends and myself-- there was ample space for us to each have a bed of our own without feeling like we were on top of one another. The location is wonderful, close to town but quiet, with beautiful scenery a quick walk away. We weren't able to enjoy the hot tub because the chlorine was so strong that it was physically uncomfortable, but this may have been due to it being freshly re-chlorinated. We didn't give it another chance simply because we ran out of time, but perhaps it would have been better after "breathing" for a bit.
Family summer stay
Lovely, well equipped house in a great location. Upstairs living area is bright and airy. Kitchen was well equipped and stocked with condiments and basic foods which was really helpful and nice toiletries in all the bathrooms. As a family with young children we were particularly impressed with the little additional kids bits - a fold up booster seat for our infant to sit in while eating, the stair gate, fold up travel cot was perfect, even some plastic beakers, sippy cups spoons and plates, great! Extras outside like buckets and spades, BBQ, body boards and the kids enjoyed the hot tub. Downstairs space is a little more difficult to understand we didn't spend anytime down there really, but the bedrooms were flexible enough for us to set things up the way we needed to suit our family (2 adults, 1 infant and 2 young boys). We really enjoyed our stay, so close to the beach, the boardwalk and everything we needed, Harbour cafe was nice, I enjoyed running around the marina to the lighthouse.
We're so glad you enjoyed yourselves. We strive to meet many needs of our guests with the supplies/extras we provide. Our family room downstairs with set bar and mini-fridge/sink, the two bedrooms and one bath, is especially set up well to accommodate two families, or those with "older" kids who like a space of their own. It's also easy to keep track of everyone with the open concept. Thank you for your comments and appreciation. The Owners.
Convenient little house
We rented this home for a family reunion weekend and had four couples there for two nights. The good thins are: clear communication from the property manager, location a few blocks walk from the beach and the bathrooms and kitchen were clean. The things that we found problematic were the location of the two bathrooms for eight adults. One is in a master suite so six people were effectively sharing the other. The other is the home and it’s plumbing need repair; sinks do not drain, upper shower didn’t drain, toilet upstairs had trouble flushing etc. we communicated these concerns to the property manager as well as the fact that the upstairs windows are inoperable. Bed linens are very tired but there are plenty of them. There are boogie boards to borrow. If they fixed the windows and the plumbing I would recommend this home for a family with children but it isn’t set up for eight adults. There are two separate bedrooms and one garage conversion has a twin and a trundle on springs. The fourth couple had to use a futon.
We appreciate your input to our property manager at the end of your stay and are always receptive to our guests comments. We had our plumber out the day after you left to snake the drains (due to lots of hair). Didn't hear about the shower problem then, so he came back and all is fixed, draining well.
Some bed linens have been replaced with new. Our website describes well the sleeping arrangements (size of the 4 beds, plus futon & sleeper sofa), so I'm hoping your group was able to enjoy yourselves. The Owner.
Our family just loves this spot!
S o pleasant, well-equipped and an overall great place!
Great house for a family or to have a gathering. The kitchen was well stocked and there were lots of towels and extra blankets. The location was great, a short walk to the beach and short drive to the boardwalk and shopping district. We had a great visit!.
Excellent home. Well kept.
Comfortable. Good location.
Charter services, including fishing, diving, photographic, whale watching and wildlife excursions are available as well as fresh seafood straight from the boat. Check with the Santa Cruz Harbor for more details. Aldo's restaurant is across the harbor just a short 5 minute drive. Aldo's is a local favorite for breakfast with a view. The Harbor Cafe is quite a special catch as well. The sea worthy ambiance, bottomless mimosas and brunch are surely a meal worth writing home about. Of course there are several sights to see at the Beach Boardwalk. There is a new ride this summer called the Undertow! A one of a kind spinning roller coaster. A must see. Downtown Santa Cruz has so many great shops from O'Neils, and Pacific Surf to our favorite Bookshop Santa Cruz. Don't miss Marini's famous salt water taffy and a cup of amazing Santa Cruz Roasting co. coffee.
