Description of the Santa Cruz vacation home rental
Let the sound of the waves crashing on the beach wash away your stress. Aloha ‘Oe this Hawaiian style beach house has it all!

There is a 3 night minimum.

Views of the ocean and 3 min walk to the beach. Two bedroom, two bathroom, spacious layout with a large eat in kitchen great room, formal dining room, living room with fireplace. This house is ideal for family get together. Remodeled and re-decorated gourmet kitchen and great room. This stylish cottage beach house has all new appliances. The great room walks out onto a split level deck. Have dinner on the upper porch with a view of the ocean and lagoon. Lower deck has a BBQ and a large picnic table for additional dinning.

The location of this house is just one block from the beach. Santa Maria’s(21st ave) is one of the most beautiful beaches in Santa Cruz with surfing, boogie boarding, skim boarding, fishing and great for long walks. Explore the tide pools to find sea anemones, sea urchins and watch the otters play. This location is close to the fun filled S.C.Boardwalk, the famous surfing spot Pleasure Point, and 41st Ave where you will find a variety of shops and restaurants. Minutes from Capitola Beach and the Santa Cruz Yacht Harbor were you will find beach volleyball, kayaks rentals, and great restaurants.

One of our newest benefits is just a 4 minute walk from the house where you will find Starbucks and several restaurants. An ideal morning is walking to Starbucks and then another 4 minutes to the beach to enjoy your coffee while watching the waves crash onto the beach and cliffs below.

Within an hours drive you can see the full beauty of the Monteray Bay by taking its scenic drive, to Carmel, Seventeen Mile Drive, Pebble Beach Golf Coarse and the Monteray Bay aquarium. Between our house and Monteray is Moss Landing another wonderful area for kayaking and exploring the ocean wildlife.

Amenities include a full gourmet kitchen, fireplace, plasma TV with VCR/ DVD player, gas BBQ, washer and dryer, linens, down comforters, feather pillows and towels, both beach and bath towels. A security deposit and cleaning charge are required.

The house sleeps 8, one queen size bed (2), one double size bunkbed (4), and your choice of 2 sofa beds)

During the summer months we rent the house by the week Sunday to Sunday.

Must be 22 years of age to rent our home.

Please, NO PETS
Area Information
The house is centrally located to all the attractions in Santa Cruz.

Three miles away is the main attraction in Santa Cruz, the California Beach Boardwalk. The boardwalk has rides, events and attractions right on the beach. One mile away is Twin Lakes Beach. There you will find the Yacht Harbor, which offers beach volleyball, kayaks rentals and wonderful restaurants also on the beach. Two miles in the opposite direction is Capitola. Capitola is a quaint beach town, with many restaurants and boutique shops. Pleasure Point, which is a popular surf area and 41st Ave, which is filled with restaurants and surf shops, is 1 mile away.

Santa Cruz is apart of the Monterey Bay, which has endless possibilities for sight seeing. One of the most popular is the Monterey Bay Aquarium in Monterey and Carmel, which is 45 miles away.

There is one little restaurant, that I love, which is within walking distance. It is called the Aloha Grill and it is about a block away from the house. They serve Hawaiian food and have live music on certain nights. I have a welcome binder at the house that has information on all the great restaurants in the area.

Wonderful home


Fair Oaks, Ca

Wonderful home

August 9, 2016

We gathered with friends and family to relax at the beach and remember my daughter. It was a great place to fix and share meals both inside and on the decks outside. And a short walk to the beach. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
