About Cathy Pieratt
Andre has lived in Santa Cruz most of his life and I have lived here for thirty years. We enjoy living in this area because there is so much to offer. We go to the beach as often as possible with our two children.We also enjoy riding our bikes around town to the many wonderful places to see and enjoy. Water sports are definitely in the mix of our daily lives. Surfing, sailing, outrigger paddling and stand up paddling in Santa Cruz are popular things to do.
Cathy Pieratt purchased this House in 2000
Why Cathy Pieratt chose Eastside Santa Cruz
We built the house for ourselves to live in and lived there for eight years until we grew out of it when our kids needed their own rooms.The house is perfectly set up for small families or a couple. We thought it would be a great vacation house and it has worked out nicely for our guests. Many of them return year after year and it is fun see their families grow.
What makes this House unique
The house is located a block up from one of the best beaches in Santa Cruz. Our neighborhood is unique and close knit. Most of the neighbors know each other and we gather for sunsets almost every night. It is close to stores, restaurants,coffee spots and shopping. Our beach is a popular surf spot when the swell is up. We have many varieties of animal and sea life right off and on the shore. It has a deluxe Dimension One spa, outdoor shower, hammock, beautifully landscaped yard, privacy plantings surrounding the property, bikes and a baby jogger for guests to use and the inside is immaculately maintained. We live next to the house and do all the maintenance and cleaning. If anything needed we are close by to help out.

This was one of the best rental properties we have ever stayed at! The house was perfectly appointed and situated for our needs. Cathy and Andre are both super friendly (as is their cat). We spent Christmas there; they had thoughtfully decorated the house so it felt warm and welcoming. We found the house to be extremely well stocked for cooking, even nice sharp knives (not always the case in some rentals). The hot tub was an added bonus which we used every night. The neighborhood is quite quiet, the yard as pretty as the inside and the short walk to the beach overlook very pleasant. We hope to visit again in the future! Thanks again Cathy and Andre for helping us have a wonderful Christmas.
Lovely, quiet home
We had a lovely stay at this cozy house in a quiet neighborhood. The house was clean, comfortable, as pictured, and the Jacuzzi was such a great bonus! The host was attentive and easy to communicate with. No complaints... we'll definitely be back!
We used this home as a getaway for the Thanksgiving weekend. It was a perfect location to everything: beach, Monterey, downtown. The hot tub was an added treat at the end of each day! Cathy was great communicating with us as we were to initially arrive very late, ended up being even later due to weather and even left us a treat for our arrival. We will rent this home again.
We had a wonderful time staying at Cathy's house. It was the perfect size for us. We SO appreciated the kids toys and jogging stroller and in many ways our stay felt like a visit to a friend's house. We felt well cared for, in a relaxed way. The hot tub is glorious, clean and quite large and the outdoor shower was a special bonus. The proximity to the beach made it all that much more special. We can't wait to return.
Charming place to stay
The house on 26th Avenue was a perfect place to stay. It was spacious, beautifully furnished, has everything one could want. The owners set us up with many good towels, sheets and bedding, fully supplied kitchen and comfortable beds and furniture. We loved it so much we hardly wanted to leave! The yard was landscaped so beautifully with chairs for lounging. The Tv s worked well as did the heat and the fans. It was quiet and the owners never intruded. There were orchids and plants throughout the house. I will definitely come back.
Perfect Family House
Absolutely loved this home. It had so many wonderful amenities for people with children including playpen, highchair, toys, books and movies. The house is immaculate and the finishing touches are lovely!
Location, location, location! This home is in a quiet neighborhood and super close to the beach.
The only downfall is that the beds are very uncomfortable and probably need to be updated.
There are so many sights to visit and activities to do in our area it is almost limitless. Depending on visitors interest. There are many State parks to hike and bike nearby. Also all water sports, golfing, biking ect..
Santa Cruz has great wineries and restaurants to explore. Our house is located a block from 26th Ave beach which has great waves for experienced surfers when the swell is moderately large. there are lots of Dolphin, Otters, Seals to watch from the shore on a regular basis.
I love to travel and sometimes I don't have reception or wifi to respond within 24 hours, which is what vrbo requires when potential guests enter their CC information. It is best to send a direct inquiry to me before entering all the credit card information. That way guests CC are not held by the site. To bypass all the booking part just go to email owner and click on that tab and enter desired dates.
