Recent Santa Cruz County vacation rental reviews

I grabbed a few days at the Beach Haven with my 11-year-old and we have a lovely time. The space is clean, the light is good, and it feels open and comfortable despite it's cozy size. Great location to walk from - only a block from East Cliff and the beach. We found a nice coffee shop a block or so the other way - Cat & Cloud - and went there every morning. Kitchen/pantry are well stocked. Beds are comfy. Good water pressure in the shower. All in all, a great place for a getaway for the two of us.

Adorable home with everything we needed to make our stay complete. Very comfortable beds, plenty of room for 3 to 4 adults, great floorplan, quiet neighborhood, nice size kitchen and super CLEAN. We would stay at this location again in the future!!! Thank you so much!

Loved the outdoor deck at tree level, the house was clean and the fireplace with the pine logs provided by the owner was a nice touch.
