THIS PLACE IS FUN!! Every room in this beautifully crafted 3 story Mediterranean town-home has amazing views! It is just steps away from the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, and Wharf. Arguably, you're in the best location in Santa Cruz. With an 8 minute walk to downtown, driving is not necessary. This cheerful bedroom is on the first floor, has a private bathroom and views. You will have access to the beautiful open living space and kitchen. You won't want to leave.
This luxury, 3 story, 2,000 square foot, townhome sits above the boardwalk in the desirable Beach Hill neighborhood. It was built to take full advantage of the stunning views. The windows on every floor in the front of the home have unsurpassed views of the ocean, Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk and the wharf. Grab your morning coffee or tea and enjoy the beautiful sunrises over the ocean. The other side of the home has mountain views.
Once you have parked your car there is no need to move it for the remainder of your stay. The beach boardwalk, wharf, and volleyball courts are just steps from your front door. You can also walk to downtown Santa Cruz in less than 10 minutes. (See the "neighborhood" section below for a list of walking destinations.)
The living space on the second level of the home is a bright and sunny open space with a gas fireplace, tiki bar and a balcony overlooking the ocean. There is a 65-inch TV with built in surround sound and Xfinity X1. Throw open the doors and windows to immerse yourself in your surroundings and the activities below. When you are ready for some quiet time the top-of-the-line dual pane windows allow for that too.
The gourmet kitchen is fully equipped for your culinary needs. It has granite counter tops, filtrated water and a convection oven with gas range. There is countertop seating and an adjacent counter height table that can be expanded to seat 8. The kitchen is supplied with coffee, tea, spices and oils for guest use.
A closet next to the kitchen houses the washer, dryer and ironing board.
Your private room is on the first floor. It has a super comfy queen bed with foam mattress topper, walk-in-closet with hangers, and armoire. There is a large window next to the bed with those amazing views of the ocean, boardwalk and wharf. The bathroom has a tiled shower/tub combo, large granite counter top and plenty of towels.
Guests can access the main living space, kitchen, laundry, guest bath and balcony.
