Imagine Yourself Steps Away from the Santa Cruz Beach


Home Description

We have a very special home! Imagine yourself just steps away from one of Santa Cruz's most popular beaches - Twin Lakes on 14th Avenue. This over 4,000 square foot comfortable home boasts views, a prime location, and a true taste of the magic that Santa Cruz offers! Let your mind unwind while sun bathing at the beach or relaxing on one of the multiple view decks of this spacious home. Walk to the Harbor, restaurants, and shops......Sleeps up to 17 in comfortable beds. It is also extremely kid friendly. We have a separate game room (great for the kids!) with Foosball, Play Station 2, Ping Pong and Cable TV.
Our home is three levels. The top floor has the kitchen, dining rooms, and living rooms and outside deck. The 6 bedrooms and another beautiful deck are on the main floor. The game room is on the bottom floor. If you or anyone in your group has concerns walking steps, we suggest you find an alternate accommodation.

SANTA CRUZ VACATION HOME ORDINANCE APPLIES TO EVERY HOME IN THE COUNTY: This ordinance restricts the amount of guests allowed in homes throughout the county. The limits are 2 adults per bedroom plus 2. This means our home is limited to 14 adults. The County does not place a limit on Children under the age of 12. We will not rent to more than 14 adults. This makes our house even more special since we have the room to fit your family or group.

Perfect for a family get together and getaways. Perfect for small groups and retreats. Enjoy having everyone together - sharing special times in a comfortable, spacious home. This fully furnished and equipped large home includes 2 large HD LCD TVs with cable, high speed wireless internet, two fireplaces, DVD players, peek ocean views from decks, top of the line bed linens, washer/dryer, and a hot water outdoor shower - perfect after a swim or surfing. Multiple iPod/iPhone speakers throughout the home for music (and charging!). The private deck is equipped with gas BBQ and also a storage area complete with beach chairs, boogie boards, and more! At night the breaking waves will lull you to sleep, and in the morning enjoy your coffee on the beach or in our peaceful setting. (Not responsible for sea lion barking) :)

Take a stroll to the nearby restaurants, shops, and attractions, take a sunset walk on the beach, or just sit back and enjoy the calmness of Santa Cruz. This beach home is just steps from the entrance to Twin Lakes Beach - one of the most popular and warmest beaches in all of Santa Cruz. Despite its popularity, you will find our 'half' of the beach to actually be quite private, yet still close to all the action. During the day take a short walk along the beach to the Crows Nest to have lunch with a view or catch a beach volleyball game. At night, enjoy a bonfire and ‘smores on the beach. We are also minutes from the famous Santa Cruz Boardwalk and the Giant Dipper roller coaster. There is a brand new Whole Foods a few minutes away and a large Safeway for all your shopping. There is even a small market within easy walking for your last minute items. Just a short drive down the coast are the world famous Monterey Bay Aquarium, Pebble Beach Golf Courses, Laguna Seca Race Track, quaint Carmel-By-The-Sea, and majestic Big Sur. Lucky for you, our home is centrally located to all that Santa Cruz and the Monterey Bay have to offer.

Please note that this is our second home and we are looking for guests who will treat both our home and our neighbors with respect. If you are looking for a 'party house' please look elsewhere. We do not allow parties, weddings or other large gatherings.

Great house, well-equipped, comfortable

We stayed for a week in this house for a family reunion, around 14 people. Once we got used to the layout, it was perfect. Two well-equipped kitchens, a huge dining table, plenty of beds and good linens and towels, a short walk to the beach. Lots of boogie boards, a couple of surfboards. It was perfect for us! thank you!!!

Fabulous Family Reunion Accomodation

We had 7 adults and 4 children for a family reunion in July 2017. The house was perfect. All the bedrooms and 4 bathrooms were ideal for our large group. And two full kitchens too. Wow! We mostly cooked one but having two refrigerators made it easy to store all our food. The Twin Lakes State beach was a blast and only 2 blocks away. We did many other activities - morning runs, Santa Cruz Boardwalk, redwoods hike, Monterey Bay Aquarium, and for the oyster lovers a quick trip to Phil's Seafood Market and Cafe in Moss Landing. But, the beach was a daily trip. We saw seals from the beach regularly. The house also had plenty of beach chairs, boogie boards and sand toys. I cannot think of a thing I would change.
