Description

Welcome to 5th Haven! Our goal is simple, to offer you a place of tranquility, of rest and repose. Remodeled in 2013, this beautiful beachside cottage was built with serenity in mind. Walking distance to the beach, Santa Cruz harbor, restaurants, live music, surf/paddleboard/boat rentals, beach volleyball, firepits.

Careful attention to detail was made remodeling the home to give this small slice of heaven a cozy beach feel. It will comfortably accommodate 6 with indoor & outdoor living space to relax and enjoy the Santa Cruz sun.

Guests are welcome to all amenities in the home including kitchenware, free WiFi internet, cable TV, hammock and even beach cruisers!

We're here to help! Text will get the quickest response. Calls/emails also welcomed.

Located on a quaint one-way street, 5th Haven is far enough from the downtown Santa Cruz tourism to unwind, yet close enough to visit. The Twin Lakes area of Santa Cruz has water on 3 of its 4 corners. Santa Cruz harbor to the West, Swan Lake to the right, and Twin Lakes beach out front.

One of the great things about 5th Haven is its location. Once you park you never really have to drive again. The home is a short walk to the beach, Santa Cruz harbor, restaurants, live music, surf/paddleboard/boat rentals, beach volleyball, and fire pits. Of course if you want to venture out, downtown Capitola, and downtown Santa Cruz are only a few miles away. There are two parking spots available in front of the home and public transit is available right down the street.

The home is on the corner of Eaton street with local traffic that can be heard from outside. Home is insulated so inside is quiet.


House Rules
Check in is anytime after 3PM
Check out by 12PM (noon)

We like to follow the golden rule "treat our home the way you want yours to be treated". We love our small slice of Santa Cruz heaven and take pride in how beautifully it turned out. That's why we ask you to help us keep it looking like those pictures that enticed to visit. We also don't allow pets (while we love animals, one thing 5th Haven lacks is a grassy knoll), and no smoking (it kills the seagulls). Lastly, parking is the Santa Cruz diamond. Please avoid parking in front of other people's houses so they have somewhere to rest their wheels. Thanks!

Small place but very efficient use of space. The house itself is meticulous and feels like it belongs in Santa Cruz. The air conditioning is brilliant. We were always lovely and comfortable when in the house. Couldn't recommend it more!

Response from Ryan:
Thanks Vincent! One note to future guests, the home doesn't actually have air conditioning. Santa Cruz sea breeze gives us plenty of natural AC so we don't need it.

Ryan's place is truly terrific: clean, well-furnished, close to the beach, spacious. We have been very pleased with the house since the very moment we arrived, and nothing during our stay made us change this opinion. Very much recommended. Thank you Ryan!

Ryan's place was amazing! Very welcoming and cozy! Very close to the beach and great restaurants. The sunsets there were amazing. Very close to downtown Santa Cruz and the boardwalk, less than a $10 uber ride. You will have a great time in Santa Cruz when staying at a nice place like Ryans!

Ringing in the New Year at the relaxing 5th Haven was perfect for our group! The fire pit was definitely our favorite amenity- providing a fun environment for 3 couples to share a few drinks, smores, and stories. The location is great for walking to the harbor and just a few miles away from Steamers Lane and Pleasure Point if you surf. Ryan was a great host- providing us with a book of everything we needed to know for our stay.

Born in So-Cal, found home in the Bay. Moved here in 2008 and fell in love with the people, places and slightly more definable seasons. I work for a surgical robotics company with technology that helps people daily, making my job an enjoyment since I started. When I’m not travelling for work I enjoy fitness activities with my beautiful other half Denise. Any weekend we get to sneak away is spent in Santa Cruz relaxing and enjoying the beach, and on the occasion we get a free week we love to expand our view of the world and explore the amazing people and cultures on different continents.
