Out with the old, in with the new!

In case you've stumbled upon this blog and website while searching for The Cozy Cove vacation rental home in Santa Cruz (perhaps you've stayed there before), welcome to the new and improved Beach Haven at Seabright – complete with new owners and new property managers.

The newly renovated three bedroom, two bathroom home sleeps up to eight guests comfortably with a California King bed in the master bedroom, Queen bed in the guest room and two twin trundle beds in the third bedroom. We painted the entire home inside and out, replaced all the furniture and appliances, spruced up the downstairs bathroom, installed a new washer and dryer, and completely renovated the upstairs bathroom with a new shower/tub.

We collaborated with an amazing designer from Aptos, Mahlah Karpavage and some great local contractors to help us take a dark and outdated vacation rental and turning it into a serene haven by the beach. (Our project was featured on Mahlah's houzz page.) Here are a few before and after photos. We hope you like what we've done with the place, and that you'll come stay with us soon!
