Tucked away down a private lane, our home is light & bright with loads of charm, a private oasis with a big lush private yard. Beach, surfing, shops and restaurants all within a 10 minute walk. Capitola village 1 mile away. It's a charmer!

The space

We have brand new furniture throughout the house so you get the perfect mix of modern and classic bungalow. It's incredibly cute. We love our home, and we hope you will too! It is an old home, and not a party pad. Please treat it with the same respect you would your own home.

The house sits at the end of a long driveway off of 35th Ave. shared with our two neighbors. Being at the end of the lane and far from the street makes our house a quiet and private escape. We're on the north side of Portola, which means you are just as close as all the vacation rentals (we're a 9 minute walk from the beach - we timed it, surf board in hand!) but without the high price tag!

The backyard is an oasis filled with fruit trees. There is a small patio off the kitchen where you can enjoy coffee, and a large deck out back with plenty of seating, where you sit and read a book, play a game with your fmaily, eat your meals or just space out and enjoy the fresh air! The home was built in the 40s and is incredibly cute and quaint, with all the charm of an old house.

You'll feel right at home.

Walk a few minutes to the east and you're on 41st Ave, with all the surf shops (and board rentals), Pleasure Pizza, Chill Out Cafe, and dozens of other dining options. Everything you need is within walking distance.

You can wake up every morning and go for a run along East Cliff or hop in at the point for a surf. Prefer to just lay out on the beach? Head down 36th Ave straight to Jack O'Neill's house and down the stairs to the beach.

It doesn't get much better and we're sad to not be able to enjoy our home ourselves, but are thrilled that you will be able to!


Master: lovely and bright and opens up onto the deck. Comfy queen bed.
Second: bright and at the front of the house with another comfy queen bed.
Guest: this is the kids room! It has a door that opens onto the front of the house and will have two cozy twin beds, perfect for the kids.

One: bathroom with shower and mini-atrium, right next to the master and second bedroom
Two: bathroom with shower and connected laundry room off of the dining room, across from the kids room.

Perfect for all those beach towels!
The house is old and has old plumbing, so we ask that you not shower or run the dishwasher while doing laundry, so as to not overload those old bones!

Please do note that we are at the end of a 200ft long dirt driveway with space for only one car. If you're coming with multiple cars, you'll need to park the extra cars on the street. The lane is shared with our neighbors and requires backing out of (there's no turnaround). Just a heads up so you know ahead of time!

With El Nino, some of the dirt road has washed away, leaving potholes, so drive carefully down the road!

Guest access

You have full access to our entire property - enjoy!

We request that you remove your shoes when inside the property.

We have a STRICT one car policy for parking at the house. We have a long private drive that we share with neighbors and people are tempted to park on that drive but our neighbors will have you towed if you have additional cars besides the one that fits at our house. So please, please only have one car parked at our house. 35th Ave. has plenty of permit free street parking.

Interaction with guests

We will be in the area and can be there to solve any issues, but otherwise, the house is yours for you to enjoy all for yourself!

Lovely, secluded bungalow with tons of charm. Close enough to all convinces but also had an atmosphere of complete privacy.

One word summary: Paradise. What a wonderful place. The photos do not begin to do it justice. The house is spacious, comfortable, and charming. The back yard is incredible (that's the paradise part). The neighborhood is beautiful, with an easy walk to a scenic ocean overlook, restaurants, stores, bars, etc. Ian and Colleen were a pleasure to deal with. Their instructions were clear and comprehensive. When we had a question, they were quick to answer our call and provide the necessary information, in a very friendly way. Awesome experience, all the way around. My wife, 18-year-old daughter, and 21-year-old son stayed here very comfortably. We'd stay here again, given the opportunity.

We had a great stay at this cute little home. It looked just like the pictures! Just a quick drive to Santa Cruz and a walk to some great restaurants. I would definitely recommend staying at Ian & Colleen's while visiting Santa Cruz.

The description was accurate and impeccable and perfect for celebrating our friend's 30th birthday. The home is beautiful and so beachy and has all the amenities described. We sat in the back enjoying wine with the twinkle lights and gabbing the night away. The beds were all comfortable, clean, and very well decorated and coordinated. I will be bringing my family here next summer for sure! Ian and Colleen communicated very efficiently and were so friendly and their home guide couldn't have been more clear. Also it's so close to down town (only a 6 min über ride) and 5 minutes to a whole foods and lucky's grocery store!

Neighborhood was delightfully quiet and house was very clean. However, we could not light the oven. Very pleasant stay, but expensive.
