Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We really enjoyed our stay in Santa Cruz. I had no idea how close the house was to one of the most ideal surf spots in California. Absolutely perfect area to learn how to surf or SUP. Can't wait to go back! Thanks Dore.

  • My friends and I had an amazing weekend at the Hideaway. It's such a cute and cozy spot for a group of four or five. The location is perfect, right up the street from the beautiful beach and a short bike ride away from the shops and restaurants on 41st Ave. The house was clean and comfortable and the refrigerator poetry magnets were a hoot. Dore was super accommodating and easy to work with. This is a great little place for a weekend getaway.

  • Cute little home tucked into an alley. This is an area with the Santa Cruz surfer vibe and the house is only a couple blocks from the water. Great base for 2-3 people. Nearer to downtown Capitola than the Boardwalk.

    April 2014
  • Great place and AWESOME location! We were a couple of blocks from the beach where there were some excellent surf spots. The outside area is secluded but sunny, it is quiet and it is walking distant to a cute little area with shops and restaurants.

  • Charming stay, premier location. Walk to world class surf breaks and ocean views.

    February 2014
  • Great place and great location! We will be back.

  • Great pleasure point location. Lots of extras, bikes, toiletries and surfboard. Comfortable beds.
    Dore was very helpful and worked with us on a short notice trip.
    Will definitely stay there again

  • We had a great stay at the Beach Hideaway. It was about 1-2 minute walking distance from the beach, in the perfect location. Cozy, charming, and just right for what we needed. Great for couples and surfers! Dore and Anne were also great hosts - responsive and considerate. We arrived to a nice bottle of wine, which was very appreciated after a long morning of packing and driving. Thank you!

    November 2012
  • This place was excellent for our needs, we were a group of 4 and had plenty of room for sleeping and hanging out. More than 4 might have been a bit too cozy. We loved the 2-min walk down the alley to Pleasure Point and the beach house vibe. Great place for anyone looking for an authentic beach town/Santa Cruz experience.

    January 2014
  • Great location in Santa Cruz with a VERY short walk to the beach. Safe neighborhood with reserved parking was a huge bonus. Dore was quick to process our reservation and provided us with a clean and comfortable beach hideaway! We'll look Dore up again next time we're in the Santa Cruz area.

Longtime California residents working in the music and natural foods fields, we love having a space so close to the water. As a professional musician I'm in several groups playing several styles, my wife is a nutritionist and loves to learn. When we're at the hideaway we spend alot of time outside hiking biking swimming surfing eating etc. We've spent a goodly amount of time in the tropics especially the Caribbean, this is as close as we can get to that here on the mainland!
