With everyone’s wellbeing in mind, a Central Coast road trip could be just what’s needed as we start to travel again. 2020 started off fairly ordinary with some anticipation of what the new decade would bring, then life as we knew it changed its course rather abruptly. What hasn’t changed is Beach House Rentals dedication to providing our guests with the ultimate vacation experience while keeping in check with any new rules and regulations put into place. We feel confident that our standards are the best for you and our community and are in compliance with county ordinance. So let’s get started on why destination Capitola is an awesome choice.

The Place That Has it All

When you think of vacation, what comes to mind? Relaxation, good food, water sports, hiking, exploring, and more. The list goes on and here on the Central Coast I think it’s fair to say we have it (almost) all. That makes a Central Coast road tip the perfect vacation option for you. From the rugged, temperamental waters of the coastal shoreline where you can challenge your gutsy side with kitesurfing Santa Cruz Kitesurfing or to the endless, serene beaches that speak to your inner soul. Explore the tide pools & sea creatures that lurk among the rock and kelp. For the planner in the family the Tide Times and Tide Chart for Santa Cruz will point you in the right direction.


Loch Lomond Recreation Area 

Another water/land option is the hidden gem of Loch Lomond Recreation Area No swimming allowed, however boat rentals are available for fishing or exploring miles of secluded coves. Loch Trail dips in and out of Douglas Fir and Redwood Groves. Pack a picnic and spend a glorious day off the beaten path. Check for opening updates.

Seymour Marine Discovery Center

Without even realizing, you’re in a natural learning environment while vacationing on the incredible Central Coast. One example you may not have discovered is the Seymour Marine Discovery Center; part of the UCSC campus. It may have some restrictions as of now, however the numerous walking and bike paths are an adventure in themselves. The dramatic skeletons of a blue whale and grey whale are sure to astonish any age along with various other sea life exhibits. 

Neary Lagoon

The hidden gem of Neary Lagoon takes you to another world. Exotic, tranquil, eerie are some words that come to mind when winding in and out of the Lagoon. Take your time on this route: you never know when a Great Blue Heron will gracefully land or a raft of baby ducks venture out of refuge. 

Santa Cruz Pickleball

Did someone say pickleball? Many tennis courts in Santa Cruz County adjacent to beautiful parks SC Parks have the option of pickleball courts. Pickleball is just as fun to say as it is to play so if it’s just pickleball your wanting check it out Santa Cruz Pickleball
