Property Information

The Ocean Echo Inn and Cottages is located on a quiet street that dead ends onto Monterey Bay’s lovely Sunny Cove Beach.  The Inn’s secluded location minimizes traffic and provides a relaxing and safe beach experience.  We are centrally located between downtown Santa Cruz and Capitola on quiet, off the beaten path street.
The main house, built in the early 1900’s, features five guest rooms.  The rooms and cottages surrounding the main house were built in the ensuing years.  All rooms and cottages are unique, featuring King or Queen beds, flat screen TV’s, partial or full kitchens, private baths and some are even dog friendly.  Several rooms and cottages offer a full or partial ocean view and private decks.  We also have several BBQ grills on the property for guest use.
  The famous Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk is less than a 10-minute drive away. Roaring Camp Railroad, Henry Cowell Redwood State Park and UC Santa Cruz are all within 20 minutes.  Santa Cruz is a wonderful spot to relax and enjoy the beach as well as a central location for great day trips to places such as Monterey and Carmel, Big Sur, Half Moon Bay, and San Francisco.  It is rumored that Singer-Songwriters Neil Diamond and John Denver frequented the Inn and were inspired to write some of their most beloved songs here.  Come stay with us and let the ocean work its magic on you too. Our property is located on a quiet street away from the busy downtown and Boardwalk areas. If you're looking for something more in the main stream of activity, feel free to inquire at our lovely sister property, Capitola Hotel. You can find them at
