Thank you for a wonderfully relaxing vacation. It was great to arrive after 8 hours on the road to find milk and juice in the fridge; cereal, coffee, and tea in the cupboard; and sheets on the beds. No other summer rental has been so clean and well-equipped. We kept track of dolphins and sea lions with our binoculars from the living room and enjoyed many walks on the beach. We'll be back!

Great beach house!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 4 (two adults and two kids under 2) stayed there with another couple and their two little ones (under 4) and we all had a great time. The view from the balcony was amazing, and it was an incredibly convenient walk to the beach. The house was well stocked with movies and beach toys which was convenient for the kids. We were concerned about the size because there was so many of us, but it turned out perfect. The only downside was fireworks - we were there over 4th of July and people in the neighborhood kept shooting them off until late. But we were prepared because the owners had warned us. We will definitely return there if we plan another vacation in the area. The house was well stocked with all the basics you need (juice, milk, soda, condiments, paper towels, etc) which made it easy for us who were already traveling with so much stuff for the kids.

Owner's Response: We were pleased to know that your families had a good time, in spite of the late night noise. Most of the time Rio Del Mar beach is pretty quiet after dark, but shooting off fireworks and firecrackers on the 4th is a long held tradition that is hard to squash.
We're also glad the kids found things to play with and the adults were able to enjoy the view. We designed The Surf House with families in mind. We wanted to provide all of the things we wished had been provided when we went on vacations with our kids. Please do come back. Till next time, best regards, Lynn & Jeff

Our stay at The Surf House

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed in Rio Del Mar many times and the surf house is by far one of the nicest places we have stayed. It is really well stocked with spices,cereals,popcorn, butter and even milk and orange juice to get you off to a great start. We arrived to a beautiful bouquet of flowers and a great view of the beach. The house is very clean and homey. We spent alot of time on the patio, just taking in the whole scene. We really appreciate the fact that our dogs were welcome here. The beach is great, the neighborhood restaurants are good,(especially Manuel's and Stagnaro's on the wharf)' lots of places to ride bikes and of course the beautiful sunsets. Very close to every area in Santa Cruz.We will be staying here again. Jeff and Lynn made the process of renting very easy. Thanks Again

Anniversary weekend

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent 3 days and night at this house for our anniversary. We love being by the beach and hearing the sounds of the ocean. The house was very cozy and clean it had everything you needed which made it nice. There was places to eat at walking distance from the house that had good food. A few miles from Capitola and other neat places to go. Talked to many nice people as we walked around everyone was so friendly. I highly recommend this place if you just want to relax and enjoy the ocean we saw lots of seals and dolphins, wish we would have seen a whale but not this time. We will be going back soon.

Owner's Response: We are always pleased when our guest have a chance to just relax.
We totally agree....Rio Del Mar is a friendly community. Most folks are either on vacation or feel like they are on vacation.
Anytime of the year is a great time to see the seals and dolphins.
The whales migrate through Monterey Bay during the fall and the spring so if you miss them this time you are sure to have other opportunities. Best Regards, Lynn & Jeff

Such a comfy stay!

  • 5 of 5
My sister and I rented this house to use as a base for our floral design business for an out of town wedding we had. Our hotel experiences while working with the flowers hadn't been very easy. This was totally different. There was a well stocked kitchen, every amenity you could think of including wifi, and private decks. Above all that, there was a very relaxed vibe to the place. The rooms were comfy, too. The decor is a bit kitschy with all the beach and surf related things around, but it worked! Oh, and the view is incredible. I will definitely come back, next time for a real vacation!

My family and I enjoyed the surf house for one week just before my kids had to return to school. My kids are of all ages, a teen a tween and a baby. Everyone felt content and COZY. My husband and I could not have been more pleased with the location, amenities, cleanliness and meticulous detail the owners went through to make our stay welcoming and EASY. The SURF HOUSE could not have been better! During our stay we spent time at the beach, watched marine life from the picture window in the living room, had a bonfire on the beach, went surfing at Pleasure Point, Visited the SC Boardwalk, visited the UCSC Seymour Marine Discovery Center, Visited Roaring Camp railroad and bicycled the trail from Natural Bridges to the Santa Cruz Wharf. The location was great for everything! There is something for everyone here! Best trip we've had in years!
