This spacious home boasts gleaming hardwood and tile floors and a floor plan ideal for vacationing. High ceilings, crown molding, gas fireplace, built in cabinetry, Kitchen Aid appliances and plenty of storage set this home apart. Bikes, boogie boards, sand toys, and beach chairs are on site. Mature landscaping and a lovely cedar deck provide indoor/outdoor living at its finest!

The floor plan reflects a modern approach to beach-style living with generous common living space downstairs complemented by three bedrooms and two full baths upstairs. The kitchen, dining and living room open to a sunny, private backyard. There is a half bath downstairs that is just off the kitchen.

The kitchen has stainless steel Kitchen Aid appliances with white tile counter tops and a breakfast bar. The backyard has a cedar trellis, built-in seating, deck, patio area, BBQ and outdoor dining table.

The house is equipped with 4 beach cruisers, boogie boards, beach chairs, sand toys, and a beach umbrella. We do not provide beach towels to our guests so please bring your own beach towels. This property is our second home and is located on the west side of Santa Cruz in a quiet, sunny neighborhood. Our neighbors are our friends and together we enjoy the tranquil beach lifestyle, and so will you.

Oxford Beach House is a 7 minute walk to West Cliff Drive where you will find Mitchell Cove, the Santa Cruz Surf Museum, Steamer Lane, and Lighthouse Field State Beach. It is located just over 1 mile from the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk where you can find The Big Dipper roller coaster and many other rides and games. There is entertainment for everyone at the Boardwalk, including a bowling alley, laser tag, video arcade and outdoor concerts on the beach every Friday during the summer months. The Municipal Wharf is a great place for food or a beverage during the day or in the evening. The Santa Cruz Municipal Wharf is a 20-minute walk from Oxford Beach House.

Within one mile of our house you can find fantastic culinary options, craft beer makers, wine tasting rooms, surf shops, and beach style convenience stores. These are all within a 10 minute bike ride. If you feel like working out before you head out for some food or beverages, you can walk two blocks to Bethany Curve Open Space which is a par (exercise) course that starts at West Cliff Drive and moves six blocks inland along a dedicated green belt. There is a small creek running up the green belt and the creekside trail is ideal for walks.
