This beautiful Beach house sleeps up to 8 in 2 bedrooms and a sleeping alcove, with 1 ½ baths. The charming decor in the cottage is a blend of seashore art and knotty pine, (like a Tahoe cabin at the Beach). Light pours in the two skylights in the kitchen, there's a porthole window in the living room and a rowing oar railing on the stairs.
The cottage is in a quiet neighborhood, a short 3 minute walk to Rio Del Mar Beach. After walking back from the beach, rinse off at the outdoor shower, soak in the hot tub, then go to the front deck with padded chairs, patio table, 9 foot umbrella, and gas barbecue to enjoy a comfortable, relaxed outdoor experience.
There is 1-carport space off the lane in the back of the cottage and more space available on the street - no permits required. The bedroom upstairs has 1-Queen bed and a TV.
The 2nd bedroom is downstairs with 1-Queen bed. The Full bath is next to this bedroom. There is also a 1/2 bath at this home. The sleeping alcove has two twin bunkbeds for children or adults (under 5'4") to sleep.
The bedding and linens are new and colorful, and beach towels, chairs, and sand toys are included in this wonderful vacation home. Have fun cooking with others in this fully equipped kitchen (microwave, dishwasher, blender, coffee maker, toaster, gas stove) with a table that seats 6 and newer appliances.
There is also a large washer and dryer at the home. Enjoy the cozy living Room with a wood burning stove, seating for 7 on 2 couches, satellite TV, DVD player, stereo, ihome, and free wireless DSL internet service.
Just down the street at Rio Del Mar beach, there is a cute coffee shop, a small grocery, and The Pixie Deli (with outdoor seating & BBQ). There is a fishing pier, cement ship, and Seacliff State Park Museum.

"My family and I had the best beach vacation at this comfortable cottage. Colleen met us at the house when we arrived and showed us around and made sure we knew how to work everything. I have two small kids that Loved the bunkbeds in the back of the house. We all loved the homemade candy that was waiting for us on our arrival. The beach was a short, easy walk from the cottage, and we liked that the beach chairs and beach towels were included for our use. We enjoyed the barbeque after the beach, but our favorite part was the hot tub. It was very relaxing and private and we had trouble getting the kids out. We would recommend this rental to anyone looking for a clean, comfortable home near the beach. We had such a good time that the kids are begging to come back next year."

I reserved this cottage for my daughter's 8th
birthday. We had 4 kids plus 4 adults in the
cottage and we never felt cramped! The front deck
had a great outdoor grill which we used on a sunny
Saturday afternoon. It also had a patio table with
an umbrella that made eating lunch out there
This cottage is in a great location. The beach was
a 3 minute walk (and that's with kids and a
cooler)! We were also close enough to Santa Cruz
that the kids got to spend half the day there.
Also, there is a great little deli to have lunch
called Pixie Deli within walking distance.
When we got to the cottage, we were met by Colleen
and she gave us a tour of the house. She also
showed us where to find extra linens, towels and
blankets. The place is fully furnished with kitchen
supplies, washer/dryer and beach toys! It was more
than we could have asked for and there was also a
hot tub for the adults to relax in after the kids
went to bed!
It was a great stay and it really felt like home
away from home. We had such a great time that we
decided we should do this yearly and for longer
than just a weekend! Thanks Colleen!
