About Santa Cruz Overlook
Coastal Escape on a Pacific Bluff
This weekend retreat, perched on a stunning bluff, offers peace amidst the Pacific’s mists. Below, ocean swells rise majestically, yet they seem gentle when viewed from the home’s large windows.
Harmony with the Coastline
Blending in with the coast, the retreat’s soft colors and native plants create a natural look. Doors open wide, linking a cozy courtyard directly to the sea. Inside, the rafters echo a boat’s hull, connecting the space to the ocean.
Inside: A Nautical Touch
The interior combines white and sea blue, matching the beach vibe. Fun tie-dye and rope details bring a bit of boardwalk spirit. Plus, there’s plenty of room for surfboards, making beach trips easy for the family.
