Brent & Sylvia's house is absolutely beautiful. A fantastic location looking out to sea, great well designed space, very well equipped, with amazing attention to detail throughout the property. Our group (3 couples) was down for a wedding and it served our purposes perfectly with 3 ensuite doubles. We particularly enjoyed the peace and tranquillity, the hot tub, the fire pit, and the open plan kitchen/living/dining space. We were a little surprised by the lack of window coverings in the master bedroom but the property is not overlooked and the sun rises on the other side of the house. I'd highly recommend this Brent & Sylvia's place to anybody looking for the perfect peaceful get away and hope to stay there again.

Brent & Sylvia's home was everything we could have asked for. It's an exquisite home with a very welcoming atmosphere. We appreciated the large well-stocked kitchen, the comfy living room, the amazing view of the ocean, the hot tub, the outdoor seating area (including fire pit) and the beautiful bedrooms (all with bathrooms). They were always quick to respond to any inquiries and made us feel very welcome. We'd give them and their house six stars if we could!

This house is gorgeous and well-kept, the view gorgeous, the kitchen well-equipped, the bedrooms terrific and the hosts super helpful. Hot tub in two rooms as well as outdoors, beautiful views of the ocean. We didn't walk to the beach (it was foggy most of our stay) but it is supposed to be a 0.7 miles walk, and it's an easy drive to many other beaches, 10 minutes to Moss Landing, 20 minutes to Santa Cruz and 35-40 minutes to Monterey. Really enjoyed our stay.

The location is perfect for a relaxing time. The description is more than accurate, and the photos do the property no justice. It was beyond our expectations. Sylvia is a wonderful host, quick to respond and very accommodating! We would love to visit again in the future!

Beautiful home in quiet area. Walk to beach is easy but takes about 20 minutes through a campground. Owners left us surprise snacks at our arrival. Note that the 3rd upstairs bedroom has 2 twins (one trundle) and door curtains to make it private, but the two upstairs bathrooms are inside the other 2 rooms. There is a half-bath downstairs for kids using the extra upstairs bedroom. We made it work and hope to return.

Response from Brent & Sylvia:
Thank you for your mention of the fact that upstairs we do have 2 bedroom suites, with the 3rd bedroom being a playroom with a twin trundle bed. This is described on my page. As I mention to all my guests, the 3rd bedroom is more appropriate for kids, whose parents would presumably be in one of the suites, and bathroom sharing would not be an issue. Again, I thank you for your mention of the upstairs layout, as this will be helpful for upcoming guests.

If you are looking for a beautiful place look no further. Hosts are amazing and accommodating. The house is beautifully furnished and great for kids. Room to run, hot tub, lawn for games, panoramic views, fire pit, etc. You're not on the beach but you're a nice half mile walk, or a 5 minute drive. Centrally located for visiting Santa Cruz or Monterrey. It was the perfect spot for a family gathering. If you're looking to be in the middle of the action you will be disappointed. If you are looking to get away from it all you have found the perfect place. Thank you Brent and Sylvia for a great long weekend. Oh and wildlife is amazing. Owls, birds, hawks, deer, whales and more!

Brent and I bought our beach house in 2008 as a getaway for our family. We enjoy spending relaxing weekends, as well as holidays here. I enjoy long walks on the beach, gardening and especially cooking with ingredients bought at our local wonderful Farmer's Market! Brent enjoys road biking in the hills east of our home, as well as taking our son out on our little sailboat or kayak down to Moss Landing. When our teenage son is not playing his guitar, he loves to surf the many great spots along the coast. Brent and I also enjoy wine-tasting in the small, family-owned wineries in the Soquel hills just east of our home. When we are not at the beach, our travels have taken us to Italy, France, the South Pacific, Mexico, Hawaii, and across the United States. We have enjoyed many memorable family gatherings here, and we hope that you enjoy our home as much as we do!
