The wharf is a great experience, and the beach area is well maintained and clean. It is a great town, and easy to get around once you have scouted it out.

Ocean Echo Inn & Beach Cottages

Eastside Santa Cruz, Santa Cruz

Built in the early 1900s, Ocean Echo Inn & Beach Cottages is located on a quiet cul-de-sac that ends at Monterey Bay's unique Sunny Cove Beach. The inn's cul-de-sac location minimizes traffic and provides for a relaxing and safe beach stay. The Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk is 10 minutes’ drive away. Amazing cottage we stayed in, really modern and clean . We only stayed one night but if we where to stay longer you had all the facilities you needed to cook if you didn’t want to go out. Lovely private beach too next to the cottages too. I also want to comment on the young lady that checked me in (sorry I can’t remember her name) fantastic welcome she also took me around the complex to show me where everything was, this was a great touch well done. Breakfast was great too. Thank you for a great stay, I will book this again.
