Went back to Jeff'a place for a second time. Comfortable, clean house at the end of a quiet, yet active street. Short walk to Rio Del Mar beach, a lovely beach with big waves -classic California. Great alternative to the go-go-go vibe of Santa Cruz, but when you want the city fun SC a 10-15 drive.
Fantastic stay...everything you need for a beach vacation. Full kitchen, nice-sized rooms...all clean and tidy. Thanks Jeff!!
Great location in a sleepy (winter time) surf town. Perfect little walk to a great beach. Saw a harem of seals! House is cottage-cozy, perfect for our family.
Wow! What a wonderful place for a getaway! Wish we could have stayed longer. Plenty of room for my parents, (visiting from balmy North Dakota) my wife and I and our daughter to enjoy a weekend filled with long walks on the beach, shopping in Capitola, delicious seafood, classic movies on cable, and a spirited round of Trivial Pursuit! Minutes from everything, beautiful house, warm and inviting, and every little detail seems to have been thought of. Thanks Jeff!!!
Fantastic house for a comfortable, quiet, relaxing get-away for two couples. Very well equipped kitchen. Quick walk to the beach.
Wonderful stay at this Rio Del Mar beach house. Very comfortable with plenty of room, and attention to every detail by the hosts. The location is perfect, close enough to the beach to hear the waves, but far enough to be quiet and private. The host was considerate and the easiest to work with in my experience. I would recommend this rental to anyone!
The place was great. Very comfortable, it had everything we needed to feel at home. The location was good, it was tucked back in cul-de-sac and felt very private and quiet. The street it was on seemed family friendly. Beach was about 2 blocks away, we walked down a couple times a day to roam around. It was so nice to have a place to cook and relax in.
Thanks so much we had a great time!

Fantastic place to spend time around and about the Santa Cruz area. The beach house is really nicely set out, it has a cosy atmosphere, is very inviting and has everything one needs! Jeff, the host, was very quick to reply; he is polite and helpful! I really do recommend this lovely beach house!
Rent this House. Its great, if you need a good sized, well located and tranquil apartment.
Everything ran like clockwork and Jeff was super helpful, even when I text him asking about food at 11pm on the day we arrived.
Would go back for sure.
We love this place! This beach house is amazing. Nicely decorated, light, comfortable, and it has a beautiful kitchen and garden. My 3 year old son had a great time exploring the back yard. The beach house is just a very short walk to the sea. It's a perfect place to relax, enjoy the beach and to visit Santa Cruz, Capitola, Monterey, Carmel and Point Lobos. Also Jeff is very attentive and responsive. We would definitely like to come back here!
