Now that our five children are all grown up and living all over the country (and world), my husband Bill and I decided to turn our sprawling Santa Cruz family home into a summer vacation rental. If you are looking for a killer pad to relax and chill, we invite you to visit our Airbnb listing Chez Shady.
Our traditional custom craftman’s bungalow style home was built in 1927. It has since undergone several remodels and expansions without sacrificing any of the home’s original character or charm. Relax and enjoy our luxurious, comfortable and spacious (3000 square foot) home that has everything you want and need to enjoy the Santa Cruz beach and mountain experience. Designed and built for our large family, our home has 4 bed rooms, 3 full baths and outdoor living area. Ideal for retreats and reunions. It’s spacious, cozy and comfortable with lots of amenities: indoor clinker brick fireplace, gourmet kitchen (with granite counters and Viking stove), master bath Jacuzzi, outdoor fireplace/fountain and kitchen, study/library, formal dining room with Mission Style table and ginormous great room with wet bar and 60 inch flat screen TV.
