The Pine Tree Beach House sits atop the bluff at the end of 19th Avenue in the Live Oak District of Santa Cruz. The view, the sound of the surf, the smell of pine and eucalyptus, and the salt air make this a special spot. The house faces the Bay and is flooded with natural light all-day. The great room overlooks Monterey Bay and gives you an unobstructed view of the water and the beach. The great room easily becomes an in-door/out-door space once the glass deck doors are slid away. The Bay, the waves, Monterey peninsula, even the window frames, provide a back drop or focal points for your shots. Two en-suite spaces - the studio and the master bedroom - give you space for hair and make-up prep, changing, and props. There is also space indoors and outside for supplemental lights as desired. The property is surrounded by a 1920s stone wall of river rock and beach rocks. The studio deck is 120 sq. ft. and the back yard deck is 275 sq. ft. with a fire pit. Both decks are redwood planks and both have the Bay and the rock wall as backdrops. If you will be feeding your crew, there is a kitchenette on the ground floor and a full kitchen in the great room, both well-equipped for anything from coffee breaks to full sit-down meals. The home has an entry ramp, an elevator, and bathrooms on both floors that are handicap accessible. Stairs to the beach and the tide pools - there are 30 wooden steps - is one block south on 20th Avenue. Free street parking is available during the week.

Kelsey B. booked a photo shoot for 3 people
Claudia is a pleasure to work with. I was delighted to rent her family’s lovely beach home for my professional photo shoot. The amenities are comfortable. The house is spacious and airy, with a short walk to the beach. I look forward to renting again when I can spend more time enjoying the space instead of working.
