vacation rental description

Garden lights beam up the trees at night and summer nights provide an occasion to sit in the hot tub and enjoy the clear starry nights in complete privacy. This home sleeps 6 and there is a hottub on the back patio. There are three rooms (including the living room), one large bathroom and also an outside hot and cold shower. The fully equipped kitchen allows you to choose between eating in or dining out.

You can bask in the sunshine in complete privacy as you look into a beautiful garden full of birds (doves, finches, blackbirds, bluejays starlings and many more). If you lay there long enough you will see the resident hummingbird come and flash its phosphorescent red neck. It is truly a sight to behold.

Hot Tub:
An outdoor hot and cold shower will help you rinse off the sand before you decide to jump into the hot tub.

Twin Lakes Beach Location:
Only one block from Twin Lakes Beach, you can feel the beach from the doorstep. The famous Crow’s Nest Restaurant and the Harbor are just a few minutes walk along the beach. You can enjoy swimming and sunbathing and playing any number of games on perhaps Santa Cruz’s best beach with other visitors. You can also get a café latte or have a nice lunch at any of the restaurants at the harbor.

activities and attractions in Santa Cruz Central Coast

Only one block to Twin Lakes Beach, you can see the ocean from the doorstep where you can enjoy boogie boarding, sunbathing or a game of paddle ball. Just a short walk down the beach will bring you to the Santa Cruz Yacht Harbor where you can get your morning coffee and sit down to watch the volleyball games. If you are the active sort, there's much to choose from - kayaking, fishing, sailing .. all available to suit your wallet.

If you want to take a little bike ride, you can ride south, past the famous surfing area known as Pleasure Point and into Capitola. You can check out this beautiful little town with its wharf, seaside restaurants and fun shops. If you decided to ride north instead you’d come to the equally-famous Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk with the west coast's oldest wooden roller coaster. There is also a video arcade and plenty more rides to keep the kids out of your hair.  Remember, you can enjoy the free music/entertainment there during the summer.

And don't miss Pacific Avenue (Santa Cruz's lively downtown) where there are plenty of places to eat and as many sights to see!

Perfect House and Location for Your Vacation

Review submitted: May 15, 2013   Date of arrival: April 12, 2013

Our weekend vacation was great! The house is located only a block from the ocean, in a quiet neighborhood. It has everything one would want in a vacation rental with all the amenities. The deck and the hot tub were very inviting. You are very close to the boardwalk, restaurants, and all the Santa Cruz attractions. The house is located in a great location with privacy and entertainment very near. We look forward to our return trip later this year.

Sun, surf and peace - Perfect family vacation

Review submitted: September 3, 2012   Date of arrival: August 4, 2012

The property is conveniently located between Santa Cruz downtown and Capitola, a block away from Twin Lakes Beach and about 2 miles away from Pleasure Point, a splendid break for longboard surfing at low tide. The neighbors are friendly and the atmosphere of the neighborhood is laid back. The house is nice, unassuming on the outside but smartly laid out and functional on the inside. The hot tub and shower in the deck area are great treats. Our toddler daughters took the bedroom upstairs and we took the one downstairs, contiguous to the bathroom. We had a fantastic week in mid August. We’d spend our average day at the beach until 5:00 pm, then would surf low tide at Pleasure Point until 8:00 pm, relax in the hot tub as night fell, and would finish with a late dinner. Fantastic week, lots of sun and surf. For wetsuit and board rentals go to RipCurl @ 41st St. Thanks Shyamal for being a considerate, helpful and punctual proprietor.
