How Much does it cost to stay at the Hawley Beach House?

We’re not positive, but we think we’re about the least expensive rental on Rio del Mar Beach. This is because we’ve been doing this for 60 years, our parents built a cozy but modest little place, and we love to introduce people to this area. This is our pricing philosophy:

$300 per night on weekdays, $350 per night on weekends in the “off-season”
$400 per night on weekdays, $450 per night on weekends during the summer
Some holidays are higher because, well, they’re holidays
Three night minimum during the off-season; weekly rentals during summer
15% discount for week-long rentals
30% discount for month-long rentals
$250 for cleaning when you depart
11% Santa Cruz County taxes on stays less than 30 days

What does that mean, really?

Three day weekend in the winter: under $1,400. In the summer, we rent by the week.
One week rental in the winter: under $2,400. In the summer, about $3,000.
One month rental in the spring: $9,000. You save the tax AND get 30% off.
