This is a beautiful home in a fantastic neighborhood. The house is beautifully decorated, full of art and interesting objects. Light, bright, cheerful house with inviting backyard. Bedrooms are large and comfortable. Kitchen is well-appointed with all amenities. Beautiful beach and great surf spot is a short walk away. Highly recommended!!!

Lillian and her home were both lovely. The location, within walking distance to the beach and right in between Capitola and Santa Cruz, was perfect. We got to enjoy all areas of the city. The house had plenty of room for my family of four and our little ones had an amazing time!

I had lived in Santa Cruz for 10 yrs. and came back for my nieces graduation. I have stayed in other vacation rentals but this location and home is by far the best. Pleasure Point is a local town where you will get a flavor of the culture... Cafe Topia, East Cliff Cafe, Pleasure Point Yoga... all great Santa Cruz experiences.. what I love most about this house aside from the zen feeling and open floor plan is that you are a block from a little walking path to a beach that is not well known and tucked away.. you can enjoy the beach day and night without crowds and have a bonfire on the beach. If walk out of the front door down the road towards the beach, take the fork on the right to the path..if you go left, it will take you to the pleasure point surf spot and there is also a great little store for snacks, beer and wine! Highly recommend this home as your Santa Cruz vacation get away! Only item to note... if anyone in your party is planning on watch TV (not a big deal to me but my dad wanted to watch the basketball playoffs).. figure out the TV when you arrive.. there are 5 remote controls and we found them to be a little confusing and unfortunately missed the game! But once Lilian was aware, she quickly had someone who came over to assist us and he was absolutely wonderful in making sure we had everything we needed to make our vacation a success!

Our family had such a wonderful stay here! The home is spacious and modern, with a nice back yard (our children loved the warm outdoor shower). The short walk to Pleasure Point was perfect for us, with kids and surfers wanting quick access to the beach. We found everything we needed here - our new home away from home!
