Only steps to the Beach, Ocean View, Hot tub, and Fireplace

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Nov 23, 2014
House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 8 Sleeps

Named La Vita Loca because of its close proximity to the bustling beach life, the home is beautifully painted with soothing colors, comfortable furnishings, berber carpet, updated appliances and many other amenities such as: all linens - sheets, towels, washcloths and beach towels, dishware, kitchen utensils, coffee and tea selection, gas BBQ grill, 3 TVs with cable, HBO and Stars, unlimited phone service and wireless internet.

The house is reverse floorplan. The second floor has sweeping ocean views from the kitchen, living room, dining room, master bedroom and deck, while the lower level has a second bathroom, washer and dryer, and two large bedrooms, one which opens to a very private, covered courtyard containing a 4 person hot tub surrounded by colorful and exotic plants.

Located only steps from the sandy beach, the adjacent esplanade boasts a famous local restaurant, Cafe Rio, with a menu that includes local fresh seafood, Pixies Deli and their mouth watering sandwiches, and a fragrant coffee shop for a cup of Joe on a morning walk along the beach.

Just minutes to the Seascape Resort and Golf course, a short half hour drive to Monterey for a day trip to the Monterey Bay Aquarium, or ten minutes to Santa Cruz and a visit to the world famous Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, this home is ideally situated in the heart of the Monterey Bay.

What can be better than a house on the beach with a hot tub? Great view, clean property, nice balconies. Deb is fantastic to work with - very responsive and thoughtful.

Perfect Beach House for Families

  • 5 of 5
First of all, Deb is seriously one of the nicest people you will have the pleasure of meeting. Her house is literally steps away from the beach - our kids had the BEST time playing in the waves for hours everyday -she provides buckets and sand toys as well as nice beach chairs (hooray!, a boogie board and more! That definitely saved us from hauling things along with us. Also, the hot tub was a GREAT way to unwind after a day on the beach (that Pacific Ocean is chilly!). There is lots of life around the house, both the animal kind (pelicans and shore birds aplenty, anchovies washing up on the beach we even saw a WHALE!) and the human kind - with 2 sweet coffee shops and a nice restaurant out the back door. Plus there is a great convenience store steps away for anything and everything you may need. The kitchen is well stocked with flour, coffee, many of the basics and all the utensils you'll need, and there's a Safeway, Nob Hill and even Trader Joes just down the road. All in all it was the perfect beach house for us and a great spot to venture from down to Monterey or up to Capitola and Santa Cruz. Thanks to Deb for the wonderful and memorable stay!

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5
This property is in a great location. It feels like you are "away from it all" but yet everything you need/want to see or do is close at hand. The sunsets from the living room and deck are out of this world. There are miles and miles of open beach to walk on (which you don't get in Santa Cruz itself because of all the cliffs). The neighborhood was very quiet at night, but had a fun bustling (yet relaxed) atmosphere during the day.

The home itself it very well appointed. Comfortable beds, well designed space for larger groups--but can still feel intimate if there's just a couple of you. We really enjoyed the fireplace. The living areas and kitchen are bathed in sunlight most of the day, so if feels very cozy and begs for you to relax. Most importantly, the house was immaculately clean. The wireless internet worked flawlessly the whole time we were there, and the TV is large and in a great spot for group viewing. There's a great sectional sofa in the living room that lends itself to rearranging, which is really useful if people are engaged in different activities in different parts of the large room.

All around, a great vacation spot!

perfect!

We've only been home 3 days and I already want to go back to that same house. Deb made our vacation so easy. The house is walking distance to everything and I miss our mornings and evenings on the deck overlooking the ocean view/sunsets. Life is good there!

Loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great stay at the beach house! So close to the beach. Nice beach! We even used the built in fire pits at the beach to do reeses s'mores. The house fit our family (7 adults and 2 kids) comfortably. We loved the little hot tub and used it daily. The house had everything we needed. We would love to come again!

Spring break

  • 5 of 5
This was a great beach house for my brother and my families. Was there for spring break and the house had everything we needed. Good beds, plenty of utensils and very comfortable for all. The fireplace, the deck out back and the open family room were great for our family gatherings. Anything we needed Deb was there to help with. We will return !!!
