Great little oceanfront place facing Twin Lakes Beach and can't get any closer to the sand! Amazing location! I took my wife, my son and his family including two kids and we had a wonderful time. It was a bit small for my whole family but would be perfect for a couple or family of four. Everything worked great and we really enjoyed the front patio facing the beach! It was great to be able to spend time on the beach and then conveniently walk to the house as needed.
Everything was great. Our group enjoyed the wonderful patio. Great location right across from the beach! The house is pretty small, but there were 6 of us and we all slept comfortably.
Very cute place, across the street from beach.
We were there on 4th of July weekend, which meant a lot of traffic right outside the door and fences all along the beach, which kind of took away from the steps to beach feeling. The fences were gone on the day of our departure, so we got to see a bit of what it normally looks like, which was nicer than during our week-end.
The house, in my opinion, is a bit small for 6 people with luggage, (I.e a suitcase each) particularly since there isn't much storage for clothes.
The host canceled this reservation 18 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
We had great long weekend at Athena's beach cottage. If you're looking for easy access to the beach and proximity to both Capitola and Santa Cruz, this is the place for you.
You're literally steps from the sand at Twin Lakes State Beach. This is not a secluded spot, you have to know that. There is a constant stream of activity in front of the patio. In the morning the beach is filled with joggers and bikers are passing by every couple minutes. During the day families and teenagers are everywhere. Each evening there were a few different groups of younger adults gathered around big bond-fires.
The cottage was clean and well appointed. We ate most meals at the picnic table on the patio which really adds to the space - it's almost like a second living room.
This is the perfect spot for a family of 4 or 5.
My family and I stayed here over Memorial Day weekend. We didn't want to leave. The house had everything we needed and was the perfect amount of space. The front patio was a favorite hangout spot for my teenage kids, as it had a lovely view of the beach and the people watching was fun. It's a short walk to restaurants and shops and the boardwalk is even a walkable distance. We would absolutely stay here again!
We highly recommend this compact beach house. It is in a superb location and is very comfortable. We arrived from London, England and needed a place to get over our jet lag. We did get to the property until 9pm after travelling for 20 hours. The directions given were good and the lights were on in the house as we arrived giving a warm welcome. The shower was hot and has a good pressure and the amenities within the house all worked well. As a family of four, we wanted 2 bedrooms which this house does provide. The kids liked the bunk bed room and our double bedroom was comfortable. Our host also emailed during our stay to check we are all ok. Overall, a great start to our California holiday.
