Thank you so much for this wonderful little cottage. My Sister and I wanted to show our kids where we spent our summers in the '60's and it was perfect. The location (beach just down the street), little market just around the corner, Crows Nest party on the beach was an unexpected surprise and the early morning shell hunt was everything we remembered. We did walk to the boardwalk one day but if you are a little older (and added some pounds on since your youth) it is a bit of a hike. The beds in this lovely cottage were very comfortable, the kitchen had everything you could possibly need and an overabundance of towels - the owners have thought of everything - down to the makings for S"mores. Too many nice thoughtful touches to list them all. Great location, great decor, great amenities all at a reasonable price! You couldn't ask for more!
VERY well stocked rental. Appreciated all the touches and supplies. Made us feel right at home. The location is wonderful. Such an easy walk to the beach and even to the Boardwalk.
Our family of four had a great week at the beach staying in this little cottage, and we were even able to have room for Grandma and Grandpa to visit as well! Just two blocks to Johnny's Harborside Restaurant, three blocks to Twin Lakes State beach and 20 minutes walk to the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, the cottage also provides charcoal and s'more supplies as an added bonus. Simple but clean, it's a good value in a quiet neighborhood, and includes a Weber for grilling the day's catch for fish tacos. Bring firewood for the beach bonfires!
My wife and I have 3 kids 14, 12 and 9, so this cottage was a PERFECT fit for us. The location is GREAT and you're pretty much close to everything. The beach is as advertised walking distance, as in very close. The cottage is fully loaded with every amenity you could possibly need, with exception to food, which of course is not expected. We spent a week here and didn't want to leave, so what else is there to say!!! Enjoy your time!
I loved staying here! Fabulous location if you want to be close to the water without breaking the bank. The beach is just up the street and the Boardwalk maybe a 15-20 min walk away. There's a great restaurant called the "Crows Nest" just a couple blocks away, as well as a fantastic breakfast place within easy walking distance. The cottage was clean and cozy. We enjoyed all the comforts (beds with cozy comforters, a full bathroom and half bath, and well-equipped kitchen). I especially liked the special touches, like the muffins, coffee and popcorn left for us by the owners. There was even a basket of toiletries with extra toothbrushes, body wash, etc. You got everything you need you here. I will definitely stay here again when I come back Santa Cruz. Highly recommended!
We had a great stay; the location of the cottage was great! We enjoyed the walk to the beach every morning. We also walked over to Crow's Nest for brunch on Sunday, it was delicious! The cottage is clean and well equipped; all you need is your personal stuff.
