About Carrie Walton
Beach home owned by three families that love the Santa Cruz community, water sports, and all the wonders the ocean has to offer!
We wish we lived here full time but work has us anchored to the other side of the hill for now. When time allows, we are lucky enough to call this a home away from home. We enjoy surfing, boogie boarding, sailing, fishing, and just relaxing at the beach with our families.
FUN History: The house was nicknamed "Ansel's Getaway" as ANSEL ADAMS was friends with the original owner of the home, John Bei. Ansel and John would hang out in the basement smoking cigars and discussing leather tanning projects. At the time, Ansel and John worked together at a local leather tannery shop creating camera cases of course! According the the Bei grandchildren, Ansel was quite a character and a frequent visitor of the home.
We have had a few artists visit Ansel's Getaway that have been artistically inspired during their stay. Their work is displayed at the beach house.
