The Warmth of Old World Charm + Pertect West Side!

Our Santa Cruz home offers casual elegance and warmth with an undeniably 5-star location! 1700 sf with 3 bedrooms & 2 baths, the house is just steps away from West Cliff Drive and the cliffs. It is less than a half block from the access stairs to the world-famous Steamer Lane surfing area and to Cowell's Beach . Cowell’s has perfect waves for those learning how to surf (or just body surf), yet with only a short paddle from the beach you are smack-dab in the midst of one of the world's premium surfing lanes. The house has every comfort of home combined with special touches that arise only when a Danish contractor builds a house for himself with sturdy 1942-era redwood construction materials. Befitting its ocean location, Steamer Lane Manor enjoys nautical themes from around the world. The master bedroom, the Victorian Room, offers a queen bed with a majestic 8-foot headboard; the Dragon Room is paneled entirely in redwood with a handpainted teak ceiling; and the Cromwell Room sports a unique queen-over-queen bunkbed. Every bed in the house, including the queen on the top level of the Cromwell Room bunk, provides the unparalleled, custom-made comfort of Sleep Number mattresses.

The backyard is equipped with bbq, comfortable patio furniture and a hot tub to soothe the wearied guest after a day of world-class surfing, hiking, biking, dining, wining (though whining is also exhausting) or perhaps 20 back-to-back rides on the oldest, all-wood roller coaster on the Pacific Coast (1924), the Boardwalk's famous "Giant Dipper". The location of the Steamer Lane Manor house is among the best of the very best beach rentals on the favored Santa Cruz West Side, within an easy walk to the Wharf with its active commercial fishing scene (along with some exceptional restaurants and a great wine bar) and the venerable Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk & Casino (in business since 1907). There are many options for entertainment and great restaurants within walking and short driving distance, tempting beach cocktails and great shopping for all of your surf wear and souvenirs. Light House Field and the Surf Museum also are within easy walking distance -- just a few short blocks -- as is the world-class Steamer’s Lane overlook, whose waves tempt renown surfers from around the world and is home to numerous surf contests.. For a more actively diverse social scene, it's only a short walk (approximately 1.5 miles) -- or quick bike cruise -- to downtown Santa Cruz, home of boutique shops, restaurants and sidewalk cafes, night life, famous live music venues and a provocative ambiance that reinforces the Santa Cruz City motto: "Keep Santa Cruz Weird" . Steamer Lane Manor is situated a mere 40-minute drive to Monterey and its famous Aquarium & Cannery Row, neighboring Carmel-by-the-Sea, and the exquisite Pebble Beach golf links -- with Big Sur slightly to the south. If you head North on Highway One, you will embark on a unforgettably scenic 90-minute drive to San Francisco. Along the way, stop for an espresso and muffin at Whalers Cafe in the primo whale-watching Portugese mining town of Davenport, or the isolated but remarkable Highway 1 Brewery a bit farther to the north, the awesome and picturesque Pigeon Point Lighthouse, or the venerable Duarte's Restaurant in the Portugese fishing village of Pescadero (great key lime pie, and, if you're so inclined, tripe).

Last minute bookings are possible with a two night minimum at a reduced rate. Call to check availability (our house concierge lives on the same street and can receive payment and check you in and out )

Our large living room (23' x 17') is enhanced with an inviting fireplace stove amidst a mix of mahogany paneling, stained glass window, hardwood floors, luxurious seating and a 65" flatscreen. The Dragon Room features an exquisite, hand-painted teakwood coffered ceiling depicting nearly 100 marching gold dragons (nothing scary!!). The breakfast nook is warm & sunny in the morning, the living room offers a pub table for 4, and there’s a 300-year old dining table for 6 from a pub in Ireland in our dining alcove . Every guest group receives a set of handmade, vegan and cruelty-free cosmeceutical skincare products as a gift from owner Rob & Maryann's own boutique lab -- a gift intended to make for some very, very happy hands, feet and bodies!

The Manor's concierge, Patty, is quite frankly, invaluable and is practically next door. Guests rave as much about her as they do about Staamer Lane Manor's unique ambiance. Have a problem? Patty's on it! If something ever is wrong -- and, yes, it can happen -- Patty, Tony, Rob & Maryann will make it right

Want a truly hassle free vacation? We now have a grocery delivery service with Safeway. You can have the kitchen stocked with your favorite food and beverages before you arrive.

WE DON'T RENT ON CRAIG'S LIST AND WE NEVER, EVER WILL ASK YOU TO WIRE MONEY. SCAMMERS ARE OUT THERE TAKING ADVANTAGE OF TRAVELERS, SO PLEASE BEWARE!
