The Warmth of Old World Charm + Pertect West Side!

Holiday Rental House -
3 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 8
Santa Cruz, California
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, off... Read more

About the neighbourhood
Sumptuous fish restaurants line the Wharf within a 15-minute walk from our front door. Dream Inn is a 10-minute walk and offers excellent dining, but especially a super cocktail lounge with ocean view. Santa Cruz offers many attractions for kids and young folks. In summer, there's train service from the Boardwalk area out to the old logging town of Felton and the famous steam-powered Roaring Camp & Big Trees Railroad. Several museums are in the immediate vicinity of the house. Reached by car, The Mystery Spot in the Santa Cruz mountains is a location where gravity is disturbed by an ancient meteor strike. Boulder Creek up the beautiful redwood-forested San Lorenzo Valley (Hwy 9) offers great site-seeing, horseback riding, etc.
Getting around
Most of our guests at Steamer Lane Manor simply park their cars in the garage, then go by foot, bike, Seque (both of these can be rented a few blocks from the house) or via Uber-like ride hailing service to nearby attractions. The Wharf is only 15 minutes away, as is the beach. The famous Boardwalk is 25 minutes. The world-famous Steamer Lane surfing lane is practically at our door step, as is the West Cliff Drive bike & walking path. The surfing museum is 4 blocks away.
Car not needed
How to get there
Airport: San Jose Airport: 50.0 km
Railway: Salinas or San Jose Amtrak stations : 50.0 km
Santa Cruz is reachable via Hwy 1 from San Francisco in the north and Monterey in the south. CA Hwy 17 connects us with San Jose and the Silicon Valley to the east. During summer months, allow extra travel time -- if the weather is super hot, there will be a LOT of people seeking relief in cool Santa Cruz from the heat, which mean that Hwy 17 in particular could be experiencing very heavy traffic. (Our personally preferred route from Los Gatos to Santa Cruz during these peak tourist periods is to exit Hwy 17 at Bear Creek Rd adjacent to Lexington Reservoir, cross over the highway, then right on the Old Santa Cruz Hwy to Summit. Left on Summit past the Summit Store, then right on San Jose-Soquel Rd all the way to Soquel).
