Travel for Kids has lots of fun things to do with kids in and around Santa Cruz, whether it's riding the waves or buildings sand castles at the beach, flying high above the ground at Santa Cruz Boardwalk, whale watching on Monterey Bay, hiking in the redwoods, going on a steam train, watching monarch butterflies in winter, but you'll need a fun place to stay. Family-friendly vacation rentals are easy to find on Travel for Kids.

Here's our own Travel for Kids hand-picked list of family friendly vacation rentals in Santa Cruz, all styles and price ranges, and close to the beach.

A vacation rental has lots of advantages for families – full kitchen, so you don't need to eat all your meals in restaurants, room to spread out all your stuff (kids can have a room of their own), washer and dryer, boogie boards, beach gear to borrow, and more. Rental policies can change, however, so be sure to check at the time you make your reservation to be sure your desired family amenities are still available.
