Property Description

There are 3 bedrooms downstairs at street level, and a huge master suite on the second level which also houses the main living space and features an open kitchen/dining area and great room with soaring open beam ceilings and walls of glass. A gas fireplace in the living room provides comfort & style and can be enjoyed with a hot cup of cocoa while watching your favorite cable TV shows on the huge wall-mounted high-definition flat panel TV. If it is a traditional family game night that you are in the mood for, our game closet is well stocked including a small selection of great books. From the second level, stairs lead up the “sky deck” which features roof-top hot tub with seating for up to 8 persons and comfortable lounge chairs for sunbathing. Best yet – this “sky deck” features 360 degrees of the panoramic Monterey Bay coastline.

The Lighthouse is nestled in a beautiful beach neighborhood in one of the most desirable areas of Santa Cruz, and is easily walking distance to the Santa Cruz Harbor and Sunny Cove Beach. Located between the Santa Cruz Yacht Harbor and the world renowned surf destination Pleasure Point where the Hollywood movie “Chasing Mavericks” was recently filmed. This ideal vacation home is just a short distance from the Hook, the Pleasure Point promenade, Sunday morning Farmer’s Market, and many cafes, retail establishments, and restaurants.

The natural beauty of the Northern California Coast is legendary. Photographers from around the world travel here to see one of the most beautiful natural areas of the World. The Pacific Ocean is teaming with mammals and wildlife that migrate to Northern California year-round to take part in the circle of life. Countless hiking trails in California's State Parks take you up close and personal with centuries-old redwoods, spruce, and fir.

Located midway between the Santa Cruz Boardwalk and Capitola, and just a short walk to the Santa Cruz Yacht Harbor. Buy your fresh fish locally from the Stagnero's boat on the Wharf, and enjoy preparing a meal in either fully equipped kitchen, or just relax and stop in at one the many restaurants and nearby nightlife that abound. Later, roast marsh mellows and stoke bonfires in the fire rings provided on the beach. You will enjoy breathtaking sunrises from the master suite. At night, the lights of Monterey, Moss Landing and Pacific Grove glitter across the Bay.
