Santa Cruz the Locals Way


Featured Beach House: Captain’s Quarters


Imagine waking up to the sound of waves gently crashing right outside your window, as your eyes flutter open you are met with the breathtaking views of the sunshine hitting the sparkling blue ocean from the comfort of your king sized bed.

Roll out of bed and take a fresh cup of coffee out to the deck to enjoy the fresh morning air on your face as you watch the day slowly come to fruition.



You can do just that from the Captain’s Quarters, which boasts one of the most spectacular ocean views in Santa Cruz!

This vacation home from Beachnest Vacation Rentals is beachfront living at its best, with wrap around decks facing the Pacific – and dramatic Monterey Bay views from nearly every room in the house. This 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom home is located at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac and overlooks Twin Lakes Beach. Direct beach access is via a stairway just a few steps from your deck.


In an excellent central location, midway between the Santa Cruz Boardwalk and Capitola, and just a short walk to the Santa Cruz Yacht Harbor, this home is generously spacious, with 160 feet of ocean frontage and enough parking for 4 cars, the Captain’s Quarters can easily accommodate 3 generations in comfort. It’s the perfect opportunity to relax and reconnect with loved ones.


A night around town:

Since you’re just a short walk from the Santa Cruz Yacht Harbor, take a stroll down to Stagnaro’s for some fresh fish, bring it home to prepare in your fully equipped kitchen, or just stop at one of the many restaurants with ocean views along the Wharf. Enjoy a glass of wine at Vino Prima while you watch the sunset over West Cliff, then head over to Olitas Cantina & Grille, right next door, for tacos and margaritas. End the night by roasting marshmallows over a beach bonfire.

The perfect morning:

Head out early for a sunrise walk along the beach, it’s a beautiful way to start the day! Once you’ve worked up an appetite, stop off at the Chill Out Cafe for some of the best breakfast burritos in town. Take your burrito and coffee and walk down to Pleasure Point to watch the surfers and enjoy the view.
