Vacation Like a Royal in a Santa Cruz Villa

One of the most important parts of planning a vacation is deciding where you're going to stay. Usually, no matter where you go, there will always be a hotel, resort, or motel. But when you stay in Santa Cruz, you have the opportunity to upgrade from the typical trip and try something new: your very own private villa. When you choose to stay in a private villa that accommodates everyone, you won't have to walk down public resort hallways to greet your friends and family. We are here to help you make the most of your holiday, so go on, kick back and take it easy. When you stay at one of Expedia's Santa Cruz villas, you can let all those troubles of staying at a hotel melt away as you enjoy the privacy of your own estate. That is the kind of freedom we know you like, especially if you can share the cost with a few close friends or your family. Book a gorgeous villa with us, so we can get you a marvelous place to stay that you'll be bragging about for years to come.

Why Should You Stay at a Santa Cruz Villa?

Our villas have everything that you're looking for on your next trip. From a private pool or a game room to an outdoor grill and even your very own bar, you'll be amazed by the amenities these homes provide. If you have got an admiration for charming views, you will enjoy these special getaways, because most of our villas have distinctive designs, decor, and architecture. And sometimes you'll get a little more bang for your buck for staying at a villa rather than booking suites at a hotel if you have a big group of friends or family coming as well. So if you're wanting an unoccupied hideout, or a home to occupy with your squad, we'll help match you with the ideal villa for your future vacation.
