Santa Cruz Apartments for Rent

Known for its California beach and surf culture, Santa Cruz is a charming coastal city that stretches along the Monterey Bay and hugs the Santa Cruz Mountains. It’s only 35 miles from the Bay Area and Silicon Valley, including San Jose, but far enough away to leave the city energy behind. For apartment renters seeking a laidback lifestyle with ample access to nature and water, Santa Cruz offers a slice of renter’s paradise. The pristine beaches, great surf spots, and Santa Cruz Wharf provide entertainment seaside, while Wilder Ranch State Park, Pogonip Open Space, DeLaveaga Park, and more offer various outdoor activities inland. Several commercial districts throughout Santa Cruz include shopping and dining options in addition to everyday essentials like Whole Foods, 24 Hour Fitness, and OfficeMax. In Downtown Santa Cruz, renters can find many shops, restaurants, bars, and cafés on popular Pacific Avenue. Our apartments for rent in the area are also a short distance to the Santa Cruz Riverwalk, the Santa Cruz Boardwalk, and a short drive from the University of California Santa Cruz and neighboring beach towns of Capitola and Seabright.
