Sunny Cove Retreat: Dream House, on the Beach in Santa Cruz

Sunny Cove Retreat: Dream House, on the Beach in Santa Cruz

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Nov 27, 2014
House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, 16 Sleeps

Sunny Cove Retreat was built in 1957 for the sister of Lloyd Bridges (the actor) & has had only a few owners since then. I've been upgrading older appliances, while trying to keep the 'look' of the American 1950s. This is an OCEANFRONT, BEACHFRONT house. The house is located across the street from the beach, w/a spectacular view of the water, crashing waves, & beautiful Sunny Cove Beach. The house is large and set up as a great space for lots of people to enjoy together.

note: the 'view' photo is the actual view from the front room!!

Great place for a company retreat!

We stayed at the Sunny Cove Retreat for a team offsite and it was very nice! There is ample space for everything from yard games in the front to a big family style dinner on the patio! There was enough privacy for everyone with many bedroom and bathrooms. All that and it is only steps from the beach! Sunny Cove came stocked with everything for a grill out and kitchen needs, the pool table was fun, comfortable beds etc. If you are looking for a real beach house feel, Sunny Cove is a great place to consider!

GREAT HOUSE FOR WHOLE FAMILY!!!!!!

  • 4 of 5
I am a fourteen year old who vacationed at this house with my family and two friends. The house is very old fashion and pretty. The long hallway and many rooms provides a lot of privacy for everyone. Prior to vacationing at Sunny Cove, I had injured my ankle. Even with crutches, the house was navigable. There was plenty of entertainment. I was able to play ping pong in the garage and pool in the house. There was room to do puzzles and many games in the cabinet. the kitchens and bedrooms had plenty of storage. The location was unbeatable with a spectacular view of a protected beach that was literally right outside the front door. My friend and sister went body boarding on a bogey board in the garage and were able to walk back and forth between the house and beach when they wanted breaks. We roasted marshmallows in the fire pit on the deck and frequented the hot tub.

I would definitely recommend this house to anyone interested in a vacation rental with many people.

There was one Leakey shower head. One soap dispenser in the kitchen that squirted everywhere. There was one hole in a pocket of the pool table that was broken so when you hit the ball it falls on the floor. Fortunately we were able to tie it up, and then it worked just fine.

Fantastic!

Our family just returned from a wonderful family vacation at Sunny Cove Retreat! We ranged in age for 2 to 64, including my 14-year-old daughter, who was on crutches from a recent hurt ankle. Everyone of us agreed this was the best vacation rental we have ever had. There was something for everyone at this house. We went boogie boarding at the beach across the street, tide pool exploring just past the cove, played badminton, played pool, played ping pong, made s'mores at the fire pit, went hot tubbing, sat out front and enjoyed the afternoon sun, made meals together in the kitchen, hit the Boardwalk, watched movies, took naps, etc. The options and possibilities are truly endless. We cannot thank Joyce and Adam enough, and will definitely be back!
