Super cute beach house, very close to the beach!
We loved our stay in this Santa Cruz beach house! We've stayed in many VRBO houses and this one was one of the cleanest ever. Even the smallest details were clean and taken care of. It had everything we needed, and we walked to the beach every day. Really one of the best vacations our family's ever had! Thanks so much for letting us stay in your home! We would love to return!
Awesome beach house for those who want to me close to the waves!
The perfect beach house for our family of four. Five minute walk to the beach and only a few more minutes to the harbor. Loved the house and we had all our dinners in the very well maintained backyard. We will be back for sure to stay another week because the location was perfect for us. In fact, we may become squatters and never leave next time! It was extra nice that the house came with beach equipment so we didn't have to bring our own.
Great place-- enjoyed our stay!
Sweet, cheerful and comfortable spot, thoughtfully equipped with everything we needed.
Great neighborhood-- we would definitely return.
What a special little place! It was so perfect for our family and had everything we needed while we were there - wish it could've been longer. :) Thank you for all the little extras in the cabinets, Netflix, Wifi, all the beach toys, and great outdoor space were so fun for the kids. Would love to stay here again on our next visit!
Really sweet, cheerful cottage/everything you want in a beach cottage
We met our 25-year old son for a long weekend in Santa Cruz and found this cottage met every expectation and had every amenity we could want, including a really nice outdoor shower. The house was tastefully and cheerfully decorated with really comfy furniture. The windows filled the place with sunlight. The beach was a 5 minute walk, the Crows Nest restaurant & bar was a 5 minute walk, and the back yard was so sweet with flowers and abundant furniture that we didn't really want to go anywhere sometimes. The neighborhood was quiet and pretty, and the walk to the harbor and ocean is fun and easy. The owner was really quick to respond if we had a question, and the place felt SO inviting when we arrived with a nice note from her welcoming us to contact her if we had questions. I'd stay here again and again! I've stayed at a lot of VRBOs and AirBnBs, and I've definitely learned the hard way that the pics don't always tell it like it is. Good recommendations are the way to go, and I could see that this home had great recommendations to accompany photos that matched what we were looking for. Thank you so much, Kristin, for providing such a great haven for those of us who need a really pretty little cottage to lay low in and call home for a few days. So relaxing! Great location in Santa Cruz! We loved it! Thank you again!
This is the perfect house for a family vacation, located walking distance to the beach. It's very clean and well maintained with good taste. The whole neighborhood is cute. We'll be back for sure.
Walk to Twin Lakes Beach in under 5 minutes. Walk to the Harbor and Crows Nest restaurant with Lighthouse views in 6 minutes. 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.
