We offer a clean, updated, modern-style, bungalow in a quiet cul-de-sac neighborhood just five blocks from the beach. Walk through the greenbelt to the beach or continue the walk along picturesque West Cliff Drive to Natural Bridges State Park or the lighthouse and the surfers. Relax in the morning with a cup of coffee on the front porch, gazing at the lush garden. Read a book, paint a picture, journal, let your mind wander. This is the place to unwind from the busy-ness of life.
Don't forget the sunscreen because the Westside is famous for avoiding the fog, especially in the Fall when the days are warm and the nights cool. Barbecue at the end of a beach day and sleep soundly in the well appointed, modern rooms with the faint sound of seals in the distance. We encourage mature renters who respect the full-time residential neighborhood. Couples will love this quiet get-away. We love the relaxed and easy-going area and imagine you will too.

About the owner: We love our home and are happy to share its comfort with renters. We've furnished the home to be beautiful and practical for people who want that from their rental experience. Our style is modern with clean lines, fashionable furnishings and comforting colors. We surf, take long walks and bike to the beach, all of which is so easy to do from our home.
Why the Owner Chose Westside, Santa Cruz, CA, USA:
The cul de sac location is great for kids so they can more safely play in the neighborhood. There is a playground a block away and that's a favorite for kids, too. We like the ocean and can hear the distant seals at night from the Boardwalk but are not disturbed by crashing waves. This detached home has great light from all sides of the home with a private garden/patio for wonderful inside/outside living space. The Santa Cruz vibe is infectious!
