About our home

Steamer Lane Cottage is a sun-filled stunner, perfect for those who want to be close to the beach but appreciate a quiet street and cozy neighborhood. Nestled just two blocks from the Pacific Ocean in the beach community of Santa Cruz, California, you will be only a walk or bike ride away from all the beaches of scenic West Cliff drive and the fabled Santa Cruz beach board walk and amusement park. Shopping, and a range of ocean front and down town dining options are minutes away, as well as all the fun of watching one of the best surf breaks on the California coast.

As you enter, you will walk into a spacious and bright living room with elevated ceilings and hardwood floors. The open concept floor plan provides a separate dining area that flows seamlessly to the kitchen area and then through an entire wall of glass, floor-to-ceiling opening doors to the garden beyond, creating an amazing indoor - outdoor living experience The chef's kitchen is just off the living / dining area and features a professional six burner gas stove and double oven, range hood, dishwasher, and a sink with garbage disposal. The large window looks out onto the stunning back patio and garden, which is the perfect place to relax and dine after a busy day.

Upstairs you will find two en-suite master bedrooms overlooking the back garden, each with queen bed and bathroom, perfect for two couples. The master bedroom offers a large sliding door leading out to small balcony, plus a walk in tile shower with double sink. The second bedroom is adjacent to the large second bathroom, which features double sinks, tub with shower and a whimsical tile floor. Also upstairs is a TV/reading room with flat screen TV, and a laundry room with washing machine and dryer. A large central skylight provides additional lighting to the carpeted staircase
To the south the world famous Monterey Bay Aquarium, Cannery Row and Pebble Beach Golf Course are within an hour's drive, with the stunning Big Sur coast another half hour beyond. To the east and north, San Jose and Silicon Valley (home to Google and Apple) is 30 minutes over the hill on Hwy 17, and San Francisco International Airport is about an hour and a half away. But why leave Santa Cruz?
