  • This vacation home has a great location, an easy walk to Rio Del Mar beach, coffee, and some beachside eatin. Also very short drive to other good restaurants & groceries nearby, and a great home base for exploring from Santa Cruz to Monterey.

    The home's as described -even the sheets were the same :) A nice funky "beach cottage" on a relaxed street, more than enough room for the 4 of us and our cat -pet friendly was a definite plus.

    Bonus 1: a massive collection of VHS tapes! (& of course a dvd player too)

    Bonus 2: sunken shower with dual showerheads!

    It -is- a vacation rental, so clean and functional, but falls short of "charming".

    Kitchen on the sparse side if you are planning to do alot of cooking.

  • Brian's vacation home is in a great location in Rio Del Mar. The beach, Rio del Mar beach is really close by, about a 5 minute walk from the house. There's also a coffee shop, and a quaint local bar down the street as well. As for the house itself was incredibly comfortable, we BBQ'd and had a great time there. We ended up having more than 7 people but we comfortably fit everyone. Would rent this place again, and recommend it to anyone else looking for a good place to stay around Santa Cruz, but not downtown. Thanks!

  • Considering I only live a short distance from the rental and was using it as a get away from the construction zone, it worked perfect! Dog friendly, even the one on the other side of the fence; close to the beach and plenty of room. Could use some new bedding/trowels but honestly it's billet proof features helped to relax. Would definatly recommend.

  • Cute house. It made us think it was the Brady Bunch version of a vacation home. We were just a short walk to the beach and everything was pretty easy to get to. The house was stocked with the basics and ready for us when we arrived. Clean towels, soaps, etc. We grilled and chilled while we were at the house. It was a short drive to the Santa Cruz beach boardwalk so we spent a solid day playing there as we.. One thing that is nice is the beach has bonfire pits ready to go. There is also a little coffee spot and deli right on the beach.
