West Cliff Beach Cottage is a fully furnished vacation beach rental in Santa Cruz, CA, located one-half block from Cowells Beach off West Cliff Drive. If you're looking for a vacation rental in Santa Cruz that's near the beach, world-class surf, the Boardwalk, the Wharf, and Natural Bridges State Park, then you've come to the right place.

From our front door, it's just a short walk to the Santa Cruz Wharf and the historic Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk and an easy walk to downtown. Head the other direction, and you're strolling along West Cliff drive past Lighthouse Field and Steamer Lane-- home to some of the best surf in California.

Our smoke-free cottage includes bedspreads, linens, blankets, pillows, bath towels and beach towels, hair dryer as well as a fully equipped kitchen (including microwave, coffee maker, blender, dishwasher) all charmingly decorated in a Central American beach theme.

Outside, you'll enjoy a gas barbecue in our sunny, private yard while you lounge on the lawn in a beach chair while reading your favorite book... browse through our website, and give us a call to begin planning your next beach vacation.
