Sunny Cove Retreat is the ultimate oceanfront Santa Cruz beach home.
The house is located across the street from the beach, with a spectacular view of the water, crashing waves, and beautiful Sunny Cove Beach.
It's a 1950s Americana style house, originally built by actor Lloyd Bridges for
his sister. We've kept the theme, decorating it as a "summer camp / winter lodge" complete with an oversized pool table with a view
of the ocean. The house comfortably sleeps 13-16, while also having a layout that is great for a smaller group as well. The decoration is charming and also playful, evoking the spirit of Santa Cruz relaxation, beauty, and fun. The house is also well equipped with many
amenities and supplies. There are several great walks from the house, and it is a quick drive to the most famous Santa Cruz
attractions. The house is steps away from Sunny Cove Beach, a famous "local" spot known for boogie boarding and close to Santa Cruz
surf breaks including 26th Ave and Pleasure Point. While there is plenty to do in Santa Cruz, we have hosted hundreds of guests--
everyone's top activity is to do nothing. Sunny Cove Retreat is an amazing, one-of-a-kind vacation house. Don't just take our word
for it -- read the numerous testimonials
from the hundreds of guests we have hosted.
