Hawaiian Style Beach House Ocean View - 1-Block-Water
Let the sound of the waves crashing on the beach wash away your stress. Aloha ‘Oe this Hawaiian style beach house has it all!
Views of the ocean and walking distance to the beach. Two bedroom, two bathroom, spacious layout with a large eat in kit …
We had a wonderful time at the Hale Kai. It is very well stocked with linens and dishes. The double bunk beds are great for kids. The kitchen is large. We usually ate at the bar and outside on the deck which has a view of the ocean. There is a dining room with a large table off the kitchen as well. The property is close to the beach, hiking areas, and the Santa Cruz boardwalk. The property is clean and well maintained and the owners very helpful. I would definitely recommend the Hale Kai to friends and family.
My family of 4 just spent the week at the house and had a great time. Walking distance to the beach and a couple of restaurants. The house is very nice and we appreciated conveniences such as driveway parking, laundry, boogie boards, beach chairs, outdoor shower, condiments and more!
My family went there in March we had a wonderful time . The pictures were very accurate. The house inside reminded us of being in Hawaii. It was very cozy and decorated nicely. We had fun sitting out on upper deck looking at ocean. I totally recommend this home. the owners were very helpful and communicated well regarding rental.
Our family trip to Santa Cruz was bitter sweet as we were there for my momma's memorial. The house was a breath of fresh air when we arrived after a long journey. The pictures didn't give the space justice, perfect for entertaining/dinner parties. The kitchen was my favorite, fully stocked with everything I needed to cook dinner and even bake desserts! Gorgeous deck and view of the ocean, which is a hop skip and jump away. My husband was excited about the outdoor shower but unfortunately there was no hot water, great for the summer i suppose. Also didn't realize the guest house was attached to a garage apartment, but didn't bother us because no one was in there while we were there. Overall, we enjoyed our stay tremendously and would most defintely rent again.
P.s. The owners had everything we needed for my baby(8 months) and my nephew (2), that was a great plus for us.
My family and I had an absolutely wonderful week staying in this home. It is very well maintained and clean. The location was close to everything. A bike ride to most places , including natural bridges state park and capitola. The view from the upstairs deck was incredible and there is even seating and tables there to enjoy view with meals. We are definitely planning on returning and only hope that it continues to be available! My many thanks to for sharing it!
Lori's home is beautiful and the location is perfect. We walked to the beach every day. The section of beach nearest to the walking path is relatively uncrowded and was great for the kids. A bit of a walk to get to the water, but nothing major. My son still lists "digging for crabs and playing with them in my bucket" as one of his nightly "happy thoughts."
The second bedroom is actually bigger than the master and has bunk beds that are perfect for kids. My son was enamored. The beds themselves are large enough to accommodate adults (at least a full size mattress), so would work great for older kids too.
I think the home was split to separate the upper and lower stories which made for a slightly weird layout. Living areas are spacious, beautiful and well-appointed - huge dining room and counter at kitchen (as seem in photos) but master bedroom was smaller than anticipated. Bathroom next to master is also the laundry room. Shower in that bath was small so we all used the large primary bath. It didn't deter from the comfort of the home for us. My only regret is that we didn't get to take advantage of the amazing beach-view deck for meals - darn conflicting nap schedules! We were always trying to get out of the house or it was already dark at dinner time.
Lori has also anticipated her guests needs in so many small ways. The kitchen was really well stocked - there were no tools, utensils or cooking implements lacking and since we were there in the summer there was even a supply of dry goods in the pantry from Lori and previous guests. My son fell in love with the Disney charades game and VHS movies.
All in all it was a great visit, a perfect home, and we hope to make Hale Kai a regular vacation destination as our kids grow up. Thanks Lori!
Awesome location and cozy, spacious house. The kids loved the bunk beds and the adults enjoyed the view and drinks on the upper deck. We would definitely stay at this property again.
My family had an amazing time at your home. The home is so well-cared for and we loved the set-up, decorating and amenities that the home offered. You thought of everything to make a traveler feel like they are truly on vacation. The bathroom and kitchen are so nice with high-end appliances and fixtures. The beds are super comfy with high-quality sheets and duvets. The whole house just has a great vacation feel to it. We loved the decorating! We really enjoyed the gorgeous view from the deck too and the kids loved playing in the front-yard. The outdoor shower was a real treat.
The location of your house is so convenient. We biked over to Capitola one day. On the other day we walked the short block to the beach. It was so nice that you offered everything you need at the beach such as the boogie board, toys, chairs, towels and umbrella.
Thanks so much for making our family vacation so special and memorable at Hale Kai! We are excited we have found a home to visit again and again!
My family and I loved this house so much (kids called it "other house"). We had a great time staying in here, it has all the perks one can ask for. From books, board games, boogie boards, kids toys, to detergent. The house's location is very close to the town's unique attractions; we did not need to fill up our gas tank until it was time to go home. This vacation will always be remembered, and it will be a definite repeat.
Our family of four stayed at this house over the fourth of july week this year and it was GREAT!!! There is plenty to do in town and everything is close if you want to go out of town to find activities. The house is prefect for having day guests as well! We will definitley be returning to this house.
Beautiful, comfortable home situated in a good neighborhood and only a minute walk from the beach! We stayed there for a 3 day planning retreat and got a lot of work done. Patio is amazing in both the front and back. Kitchen and living areas have a lot of open space. And if you forgot to bring something don't worry about it....there's plenty of extra amenities throughout the house in the kitchen and bathrooms to keep you from running to the store. We'll be back again soon,
We had a wonderful time! The house is in a great location and is a great set up for families. Our girls had a blast! We hope to visit again soon! Thanks so much! Kelly & Chris
