Property Description

Please note that this property has a maximum capacity for 8 persons. No more than 8 persons are permitted on site at any time. No exceptions

Enjoy cocktails on any of three levels while watching the sun set as the colored lights glow from the Wharf and Boardwalk. You have the perfect location to watch the Wednesday Night Sailboat Races and are only a short walk to the Crow’s Nest restaurant, harbor, and beach volley ball courts. After roasting marshmallows on the wood fire pit, and watching an awesome sunset, it is time for bed. You can leave your Ocean Sound Sleep Machine at home, and drift off listening to nature’s waves crash on the beach.

The East Cliff Lighthouse is a 3000 sq.ft. new construction beach home where each of the bedrooms has wonderful views of the ocean, lagoon and beach. The basement theater room has a 75” Smart 4k TV with surround sound. The basement game room boasts a professional Killer Spin ping pong table and a Tornado 3000 foosball table. All three floors are serviced by an elevator as well as stairs.

The home has two secret doors to add to its character. Can you find the hidden theater room or the secret way into the game room basement?

Beachnest Vacation Rentals has always focused on delivering professionalism and exceptional customer service to travelers visiting Santa Cruz County. During this time of uncertainty in the travel market, we want to bring to light some of the advantages of staying in a vacation rental. For our friends within driving distance, this means being able to drive to the coast in the comfort of your own vehicle, prepare your meals in a well-provisioned kitchen, and sleep in your own private vacation home, thereby avoiding more communal environments. Cleanliness and safety in our homes is always our number one priority, and I want to personally assure you that we have expanded our already strict cleaning protocols and added additional housekeeping staff to take extra precautions between guests. We are sanitizing all high touch surfaces such as door knobs, light switches, faucets, and handles and opening windows and doors to allow fresh salt air to circulate, and we have outfitted each rental with disinfectants that can be used by guests that are in-house.

Beautiful house, fantastic location
Eric Stayed with us Apr 2021
We had a wonderful time staying at the East Cliff Lighthouse for a week. The location is perfect -- just a 2 minute walk from the beach. The house was beautiful -- it had everything we could have wanted from the hot tub to the amazing basement game room to the secret rooms that the kids love exploring. Would 100% stay here again when we're next in Santa Cruz.

Great views, short walk to a beautiful beach
Michael Stayed with us Mar 2021
A very well appointed, home with beautiful ocean and lighthouse views. Amenities include a fire pit, hot tub, and game room. It is also a very short walk to the beach. The home is on a very busy street so there is pretty significant road noise. Overall a great vacation home.
