The Captains Quarters boasts one of the most spectacular oceanfront views in all of Santa Cruz! This is beachfront living at its best, with wrap around decks facing the Pacific - and dramatic Monterey Bay views from nearly every room in the house.
Located at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac and snugly situated overlooking one of Santa Cruz's best beaches, Twin Lakes Beach, this home is ideally situated to take in the unobstructed 260 degree ocean views from nearly every room. The Captain's Quarters is sure to be your oceanfront vacation destination!
This single family one story home has 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, and has one full kitchen and an updated kitchenette for two or more families to enjoy. You will overlook the Monterey Bay Marine Sanctuary. Generously spacious - with 160 feet of ocean frontage and enough parking for 3 cars, the Captain's Quarters can easily accommodate 3 generations in comfort. Direct beach access is via stairway just a few steps from the deck.
The Captain's Quarters is an excellent central location in Santa Cruz; located midway between the Santa Cruz Boardwalk and Capitola, and just a short walk to the Santa Cruz Yacht Harbor. Buy your fresh fish locally from the Stagnero's boat on the Wharf, and enjoy preparing a meal in either fully equipped kitchen, or just relax and stop in at one the many restaurants and nearby nightlife that abound. Later, roast marsh mellows and stoke bonfires in the fire rings provided on the beach.
You will enjoy breathtaking sunrises from the master suite. At night, the lights of Monterey, Moss Landing and Pacific Grove glitter across the Bay. The Captain's Quarters provides the perfect opportunity to reconnect with your loved ones, or for that long awaited getaway - feel the stress melt away as you breathe in the ocean air, listen to sounds of the Bay and appreciate what Mother Nature intended.

Better than My Expectations
When I walked in to the house I got teary eyed with happiness looking at the view and knowing immediately that the home was better than what I was expecting. We rented this home for my family honoring my son's graduation from high school and moving onto his next chapter with the Army. We had a family gathering on Saturday day/evening with family and friends that came by to wish him well. The house was just perfect!!!

The house is large with 2 kitchens and 2 family rooms and the deck is amazing. The pics online are old and do not let you know that much has been updated. The original kitchen and original bathroom have been updated but are really quite charming. I would love to know the history of the property.

One suggestion....better BBQ, other than that really can't wait to rebook for next year and make traditions with this property. I said to my Mom that this house is such a Happy House because so many happy memories can be created here for so many families. Thank you for making your family home a rental for other families to enjoy....Just loved it!!!
Our Stay at the Captain's Quarters
I must admit that we have stayed at other beach homes in the Santa Cruz area for many years..This was our first time at the Captain's Quarters and we were very pleased at how spectacular it was. The views from every room were breathtaking, beds were comfortable, and with two kitchens our ability to cook for our large family visits was an added bonus. On Wednesday evenings we watched the sail boats come from the Harbor for their weekly sailing races, mornings having coffee on the massive deck watching the fishing boats head out for their morning catch, the Dolphins, we even spotted a spout from a couple of Whales on their migration, cocktails in the evening with a view of the lights from the Wharf was just another wonderful experience. We will come back again next year, staying longer and making more memories.

2nd Stay at Captain's Quarters, and there will be more!
This was our second time we stayed at the Captains Quarters. First time was 2012 for a week and this time for 6 days. We really like the CQ it has everything you'd want in a beach house. The kids just loved every minute and so did we. Some of us slept on the deck listening to waves all night. I want to thank Julie who works for Beachnest for all her prompt emails and making sure everything was right.
Thank you for all of your help. After a few stutter steps at the beginning this turned out to be a fantastic weekend. We all were totally blown away by the house and its location and view. Pictures online surely show you what to expect, although walking through the door makes the pictures pale in comparison. The weather was fantastic also.

Outside furniture is all fantastic. Both the enclosed eating area and new couch and chair setup gave us many options to spend our time in comfort. We will be back and hope to bring the whole family next time!
We had a great time in this rental--great views, convenient location. Plus the Beachnest staff was responsive and helpful!
