A hidden gem, mere steps to the beach at Sunny Cove, a favorite local beach between Santa Cruz and Capitola! This property has a private and charming location with quaint rooms and cottages where you can spend the day on your romantic getaway, or enjoy fun family events, eat at great local restaurants, then return to your room to listen to the soothing sound of the ocean waves. Some units have fully-equipped kitchens, ocean views & private decks, and some are dog-friendly. Short walk to restaurants & yacht harbor. Free continental breakfast, free parking & free Wi-Fi. Larger rooms for families and rooms beautifully appointed, and perfect for two. Welcome to Ocean Echo Inn. As close as you can get to your own beach house!

I stayed here for a week and was comfortable with my stay. The property is just a block or two from the ocean, and at night you can hear the waves. It is nestled in a good location, with a Starbucks in walking distance and other restaurants nearby. Rt 1 is also located nearby.

Hello and thank you for the kind review. We are very happy you enjoyed your time here with us and we look forward to your return. If I may mention, Sunny Cove is only about 40 yards away from us and larger beaches are within walking distance including Twin Lakes and Pleasure Point. Also within walking distance are 4 excellent places to eat lunch or dinner. Thank you again and we hope to see you again soon.

This is not for the average tourist but instead is suited for the discriminating guest. Imagine the Santa Cruz experience within walking distance of Pleasure Point sitting RIGHT ON SUNNY COVE BEACH! I have forgotten the lady's name that runs the office but I certainly remember

I almost don’t want to tell anyone else about this place, so I make sure I can still get a reservation! My cottage was adorable and nicely furnished. It looks like it was remodeled recently, everything was brandy new! The hosts, John and Victoria were friendly and helpful. The

It's always difficult to tell by pictures if a place is suitable for your needs, but I booked this based on the good reviews. We stayed in a 2 bedroom cottage (#6). The price was reasonable but it's winter. I would not pay higher prices, which I'm sure they charge during the

Hello and thank you for taking the time to write a review. We appreciate your feedback and we will certainly take some of your suggestions and discuss how we can make them better. Most people really love the cottage you were in and I'm sorry it wasn't perfect for you. I do hope you enjoyed your stay otherwise and perhaps renting several rooms next time might be nicer for your group. Take care and we do hope you'll come back soon.

Had a very nice stay. Victoria and John are wonderful hosts! Rooms are clean, neat and cozy. Heaters are the noisy wall type but you’ll only need those in winter. They have a ping pong table which is fun. Wish they had a hot tub though. Great hiking on the beach adjacent

Cottage 6 actually has three beds: one king and two queens. Cottage 11 has two queen beds. Cottage 5 has a queen bed and two twin beds. Several of our cottages will have a bed in the bedroom and a sofa sleeper in the living room. The best thing would probably be to look at our website. The rates vary depending on the time of year, weekends vs midweek, holidays, etc. Thanks for asking!
