Just steps from the top of the path leading to the beach, you enter the front gate where you walk through a beautiful garden and open the coral double-Dutch front door to enter an artist’s paradise. This single-level home with three bedrooms and two full baths is a joy for the senses. Relax in the great room next to the cozy gas fireplace or choose to be part of the hub of action in a beautiful kitchen. The home opens up to a spacious private backyard where an inviting curtained cabana waits for you, a cozy space no matter what the weather brings. The landscaping compliments the spa-like retreat with bamboo plantings, unique garden sculptures, fire pit and hot tub. Just steps from the front door gate is the famous Beachgate Path where you can take a leisurely walk to Seacliff Beach, with miles of sand, picnic tables and esplanadeYou are just a short drive to numerous attractions, i.e. Famous Beach Boardwalk, Gizdich Ranch for Berry picking in Watsonville, Capitola Village for shopping or dining on the sand, Moss Landing for some Kayaking or Whale watching, or Monterey Bay Aquarium. Santa Cruz county has great restaurants with the beach feel, from Stagnaros on the Wharf, Phil’s Fish Market in Moss Landing, Cafe Sparrow and Cafe Cruz. At the end of the day you can retire to one of the three well appointed bedrooms for a quiet night and restful sleep We look forward to seeing you soon!!

Enjoyed our stay here at 99 steps. Quiet and nice neighbors. Great area. Walking distance to a few restaurants and convenient stores. And the house was perfect for the 6 of us.
Fabulous Adult Vacation Home
Went for a sibling trip with my 2 brothers and sister and could not have been more pleased. The backyard makes you want to never leave and completely releases all the stress and get in vacation mode. The art work in the home is the most beautiful I have ever seen. The house is so comfortable and the bedrooms were big with lots of closet space. The bathrooms were amazing as well. I can't wait to return next year!
Beautifully appointed home with a fantastic outdoor living space that is such a special feature. To top it off, we loved being so close to the beach.. Would definitely rent again!
The best!
99/steps to the beach is the most lovely, the best equipped, the most beautifully furnished rental we have ever had.
Great vacation
We love this beach house. It is our second time staying here. It is decorated very nicely and clean with everything you need for cooking there. It is a perfect beach get away. Great back yard to hang out in. Walk to the beach and a few cool restaurants. The only complaint is that the hot tub seemed a little dirty and not filled up all the way this time.

Response from Owner:
We are glad you enjoyed what we have created and share on a limited basis. Our place is more of a home to us than a “beach rental”. To our dismay we occasionally have guests that do not honor our wishes to be conscientious of how they use the spa even with the posted “Spa Etiquette” listing the “Do's and Don'ts” to help keep the spa clean.

The spa was drained and refilled one week prior to your arrival and we are sorry that you found it in less than perfect condition due the actions of prior guests. With severe drought conditions our spa service cannot drain and refill after each rental, the water can only be treated chemically to bring levels back to normal. Thank you for sharing your experience. Perhaps future guests will read this review and be more conscientious of honoring our requests when enjoying our home and amenities. We hope you will stay with us in the future.
Lovely Clean Beach House
The home was very clean, well appointed, and well worth the money. We have rented other homes in the area and this was by far the cleanest and most comfortable. The couple that own the home obviously love it and it is filled with beautiful objects and attention to detail. Everything felt new. Homes we have stayed in before were obviously filled with the owners old kitchen stuff and furniture and this was not the case here and we really appreciated that. Myself, my husband, and our two small children stayed for a week and wanted for nothing. The yard is very secure and private and the cabana is really cool. The master bed is quite plush so we gave it to our daughter and used the queen across the hall which fit our preference better. We will definitely stay here again on our next trip to Santa Cruz. As an update to other reviews there was a tea kettle and kitchen towels.
"Columbus Weekend in aptos"
Our family enjoyed this property tremendously and we even lucked out with a fireworks display from the beach down below - one of the best I've ever seen!

The home was well appointed, impeccably clean and worth every penny. Lots of outdoor space!
Loved this Place!!
This vacation rental was superbly comfortable, clean, well equipped and well cared for. All the appliances were excellent, the hot tub was very popular with the girls. It was also a very private and quiet area, no crowds and we went in mid-August. It was more that what you see is what you get, instead of hoping that it might be anything like the description or photos. It felt like a home that the owners love. Had we known how nice it was going to be, we probably would have stayed longer. We just wanted to relax and lounge in the cabana, the yard or anywhere in the house, it was just so comfy and quiet.

It was situated within 10-15 minutes drive to most amenities that we would want, one of the best organic groceries, espresso cafe's, restaurants, etc. in Santa Cruz or Capitola The steps to the beach literally across the road and it is about a 5-8 minute walk down a little longer going up. Other attractions, like Monteray and Carmel, horse back riding for our young daughter, whale watching etc. were within 30-45 minutes away.

The only downsides for us were that we had to bring our own beach towels, which we bought there since we came from Canada and they are bulky. The only thing that we missed was a tea kettle and pot. Also, some cloth rag's to wipe the counters would have been nice. In such a clean place, we wanted to keep it that way!

We only had problems with the wireless internet as it would go down for long periods, but after talking with the K&P;, we solved it. It was mostly an ISP issue.

Kendell & Potter were also very helpful and courteous the couple times we called for help.
Love, love, love!!!!!
This house was amazing. We have stayed at a number of houses in the Seacliff neighborhood, and this house does not disappoint. It surpasses both pictures and description (unheard of!). The outdoor living space basically doubles the size of the house, and it is 5 star. Completely HGTV-worthy. Totally enjoyable to be sitting in the cabana, or around the fire pit, or in the hot tub, or under the heater at the outdoor dining table living the dream. Only drawback or criticism I have is the saggy king-size bed in the master (hard on the back… left my husband and I both fighting for the couch after day 3). Kudos to the owners of this property! We look forward to our next stay!
