Charming, dog-friendly home w/ a guest cottage, wharf views, & private hot tub

Magical Oasis is an exceptional Spanish-style home that boasts incredible views overlooking Monterey Bay and the Santa Cruz Wharf. Enjoy the view from the furnished front porch while sipping your morning coffee, or have an evening drink while soaking in your hot tub out back. Choose your cooking space whether it's the gourmet Merrit O'Keefe six-burner gas oven or the gas grill. This rental also includes a detached, separate guest cottage complete with its own full kitchen, offering plenty of space and privacy for family members or friends.

What's nearby:
Since you overlook the wharf, why not go explore the dining options on the wharf itself since it's only a mile away? Go casual at Riva, try the Mexican fare at Olita's, or go al fresco at Dolphin's. Just a half-mile away you can try your hand at surfing at Cowell's Cove or maybe pick up a beach volleyball game there. If you want to get out of the sun for a bit, head into Santa Cruz and get your vinyasa on at the Yoga Center or break a sweat with a day pass at Toadal Fitness. You can also treat yourself at the Mutari Chocolate Factory or grab a beer and a burger at Surfrider Cafe on your way home.

This is a sweet, older home that is right on West Cliff Drive with a great view of the Boardwalk and pier (just be ready for a good amount of car and foot traffic in front of the house). It was nice to be able to walk down to the old lighthouse and watch the surfers along the way.
My in-laws enjoyed the separate casita in the back. People should know that the 3rd room in the main house is very tiny and we ended up having our son just sleep on the couch instead of taking it out as a pull-out bed since it was unclear how you would open the doors once the mattress was unfolded. The second room has two twins beds that could use new mattresses and non-squeaky frames. The main bedroom has a queen bed that was fine.
We would definitely stay here again if a few changes were made to meet the expectations for its price point. Thanks!
Manager response:
Thank you for your feedback following your stay, Lisa. We have passed your comments regarding the mattresses and bed frames along to be addressed by our local manager. We look forward to hosting you again in the future!

House itself and location are fantastic. A number of maintenance and equipment operating functions need to be fixed

My family and I grew up in Santa Cruz so we decided to come back and celebrate my mom's 80th birthday at this home. Great experience. It's a very special property. The location can't be beat. Thank you for sharing it with us.

The Magical Oasis is perfectly named! Our one-week stay there could not possibly have been more perfect! The location, the view, the house itself, all of the amazing amenities that come with it were all beyond our expectations! You can't possibly recommend this amazing vacation home higher. We will definitely be back next summer. Thank you thank you thank you!

We loved every minute of this vacation. The view, the house, the location! The house was equipped with all that we needed and we thought decorated a step above most vacation rental properties. Highly recommend it!!
