After paying too much for too little in Tahoe last year, my husband and I decided to go to Santa Cruz this year... And it did not disappoint! The cottage was exactly as I'd hoped:
all the comforts of home - just bring your toothbrush and snacks for the week
perfect location - situated right between Santa Cruz and Capitola
beautiful view - as suggested by the owners, we spent a lot of time on the porch, reading and staring out at the beautiful view
friendliest dog beach - we walked our little Lucy every morning along the beach, and she made friends the entire way. most dogs are off-leash, and are there every morning.
If we could move to Santa Cruz, we would. Until then, it's reassuring to know we have a reliable and clean cottage to rent when the mood strikesMore
