Your Home at the Beach

Santa Cruz County has been the beach destination of choice for northern and central California residents for generations. Nowhere else will you find the same combination of endless beaches, natural beauty, sunny microclimates, worldclass surfing, and gourmet food and wine.

The housing stock is as diverse as the county's neighborhoods. From the majestic westside of Santa Cruz to the playful beaches of Seabright and Capitola to Aptos' miles-long beach stretching from Seacliff to Pajaro Dunes — you'll find hundred-year-old cottages along with multi-million-dollar modern homes, and everything in between.

Santa Cruz Beach Homes

Looking for a beach home? In addition to the standard Santa Cruz MLS search, I publish a weekly list of new and reduced-price beach home listings located near the ocean throughout the county. Recipients also receive access to my coastal "hotsheets," a complete list of coastal homes for sale.

Santa Cruz County MLS

Searching for a property in Santa Cruz? You can search the entire inventory of Santa Cruz homes for sale on this site. In addition to searching for beach homes, you can search by ocean view, bank-owned properties, short sales, and more. However, most of the short sales and bank-owned properties are located inland; the coastal neighborhoods tend not to include many distressed sales.
