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!

Hello and thank you for the high marks. We're pleased you enjoyed our location. We're only 1 mile to Capitola and a little over 2 to the famous Santa Cruz Boardwalk. We are just steps from the cove and walking distance to larger beaches. And after a day of exploring you can come back and enjoy our ocean view terrace and get a good nights sleep because we ask for 'Quiet Time' from all guests on the property after 10 pm. This ensures you sleep well and you're ready for your exploring the next day. We look forward to your next visit.

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

We were traveling to Santa Cruz for a retreat at our local church and found the perfect accomodations at Ocean Echo Inn. We loved the water tower room with a kitchenette and small fenced area for my senior fur baby.

We had a great stay at the Echo Inn. It was our first visit there and we would not hesitate to go again. The area was quiet and close to beaches and scenic overlooks. We brought along our dog and the receptionist had a towel, bowl and a biscuit ready which was a big hit. The

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!
