The Space

We have a Sunny, Spacious, and Modern 2500 sq. ft. sunny and updated home for those looking for the entire family and/or extended family. The house is a 10 minute walk to beaches, for surf, boogie boarding, relaxing, etc. We are just a few minutes drive from Crow's Nest Restaurant on the harbor. A five minute drive to world class surf at Pleasure Point break, the "HOOK", "38th", "Sharks", "26th", etc. We are located on a quiet dead end street, with access to a park and playground across the way for kids. It is a 10 minute drive to the pier and boardwalk (15-20 min. during summer traffic). There are a number of grocery stores within a 5-10 minute drive (Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, Safeway). Go for a swim or surf at the beach and come back and soak in the large 6 person hot tub, or cook up a fantastic meal in the newly renovated kitchen with stainless appliances. We have a beautiful garden with organic veggies and a sand box for kids. A large sunny, and open feel to the living room with french doors leading to a beautiful and expansive ipe deck, with bbq grill. We have a flat screen LCD HDTV with a BluRay DVD player.

Master: Huge room with private bath, king bed and a leather futon that folds down into a double bed.
Kids Room: Queen bed
Bunkbed Room: Double bed and twin bed
Sleigh Bed Room: Queen bed
(We have two twin mattresses which we can pull out to accommodate a larger group.)

(THIS IS NOT A PARTY HOME, so please if you plan to have a raging party this is NOT the home for you. It is located on a very quiet neighborhood street and we are good friends with the neighbors on either side of us and do not wish to upset them with late night drinking in the hot tub.) We welcome family gatherings and groups to enjoy yourselves, but with respect to the quiet neighborhood and reasonable get together noise. Please read House Rules before booking, so that there are no misunderstanding or miscommunications. Also, absolutely no pets due to other guests who may have allergies.

The house is equipped with basic spices, oils, salt/pepper, etc. in the kitchen. We have 2 sets of bath towels in each room, but please bring your own beach towels. Basic shampoo and conditioner in the bathrooms.

Please read house rules placed on the kitchen island when you check in. Thank you!

Relax, enjoy and play.

  • This house was amazing and beautiful! A short walk to the beach and provided all we could have imagined/needed.

  • Sun's home is beautifully appointed. The downstairs is open, airy and light. A Great space for family gatherings. Everyone can be together as meals are prepared. The decks in the back are lovely for relaxing and gathering. The BBQ is a great plus for quite parties. The hot was hot and comfortable. The four bedrooms were spacious and the bed are very comfortable. The house was clean, bright and cheerful. Only a 10 min walk to lovely small beach.

    The neighborhood was an average neighbor, nice neighbors, situated on a quite street with no through traffic, a school and parks are just across street, close for a very short walk with children who need a little more to entertain them.

    The only thing we found lacking was the lack of empty drawer space. We tend to like to unpack, and we're not able to.

    All in all, everyone commented that the house was perfect for our needs.

  • All eight of us had a very comfortable stay at the Garcia's beautiful peaceful home. The beds are very comfy. The living area is spacious. It was a pleasure. If I come to Santa Cruz again with a large group, I would be more than delighted to stay here again. Communication was direct, easeful, and timely.

    September 2013
  • What a wonderful home to celebrate our friends 60th birthday gathering! It was just perfect for 10 people, the space was ideal. The home was well decorated, very clean and Sun couldn't have been nicer as we met for a brief moment. She left a nice bottle of wine, gift certificate and some breakfast food too! We had access to her delicious tomatoes and fresh basil as well! It was a perfect weekend, with perfect weather and a perfect home! I would definitely recommend this home if wanting to stay in Santa Cruz.

Hi we're the Garcia family. We are a fun loving, adventurous family, that welcomes travelers of all kinds. We have traveled all over the world and experienced various accommodations in the process, and love the concept of airbnb! Our five year honeymoon allowed us to experience a bit of the planet. With our 2 boys, we have started our travels again and want to share our home with others. We love to surf, thus our proximity to world class surf is important. If you enjoy the ocean, you will love staying at our place.
