Car: recommended

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.

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Adorable house with thoughtful amenities throughout, such as toys and boogie boards for kids, comfy beach towels, outdoor seating, toiletries, etc. The outdoor shower was an awesome bonus! The house is in an excellent location. It was an easy walk to the beach, to a small market and to Harbor Cafe. It was a short drive to other parts of Santa Cruz. Kristin was extremely accommodating and made us feel welcome immediately. Very highly recommend! If we are back in Santa Cruz - we will stay here.

Comfortable cozy beach house and Nice size yard

  • 5 of 5

The house was in a perfect location to walk to the beach. I loved how comfortable we felt there, right at home. I loved the little touches she welcomed us with a welcome basket for us to enjoy with a nice note. Nice quiet neighborhood and also waking distance to restaurants and coffee shop.

Perfect beach cottage feel, absolutely loved the outdoor shower area. Kitchen and linens well stocked and nice quality.

Queen bed too soft for our taste, otherwise very comfortable home. Super convenient parking, washer and dryer.

As my husband just said, " We loved it." The house was very well furnished--it included all the little extras that made our visit super nice. The back yard was a great place in which to hang out. The seating place behind the garage was especially nice. The location was great--it was easy to walk to the ocean or to our son's house on 9th avenue. Thank you for letting us stay in your house--we may be back some day.
