Guestbook

Hi Dorothy,
Wow! What a beautiful home you have. We enjoyed every minute and are already trying to pick dates for next summer! There was a definite advantage to not being right on West Cliff Drive, but who knew until we were actually there to experience it?! Thanks again for the use of your vacation home.
Sincerely,
Candy Richard

Thank you for sharing your incredible house. Our group had a blast! We all learned to surf! Your ocean views were incredible. We look forward to renting from you again.
Thank you-
Yvonne Hansen

Karen,

I did not remember to leave the keys in the mail slot -- sorry! I put them in the mail today.

You were right -- it was a beautiful place to stay! We had rented a couple of places for our family who were joining us for our son's wedding. It was determined that ours was the best -- hands down!

Thanks again.

Marlene

Hi, Jane.

Sorry for the delay in responding. I've asked around and nobody in my family seems to be missing a cell phone charger. Thanks for checking with us, though.

The house at Santa Cruz was amazing. Our Mom stayed downstairs, where the girls slept as well. She was up early making coffee for us and going for walks on the beach every morning. The hand rail on the stairs was a big help for her; she suggests it would be real nice to have one in the downstairs shower, too. All in all, yours was the best located and well-appointed Santa Cruz house we have rented in four years. Thanks for the memories!
