Property description

Bring your large group of family or friends to this four-bedroom, three-bath stunner. Marvel at our 180-degree view of breaking waves while dining and relaxing on the deck or in the great room. Flat-panel TVs throughout.

Less than 10-yr.-old vacation rental with wireless Internet, an outdoor hot tub (seats 4-5), upstairs and downstairs living rooms with fireplaces, full kitchens, ovens stove tops. High-end, hotel-like furniture. Everything for cooking, serving gourmet meals.


Location:
On the quiet West side of Santa Cruz, by the popular West Cliff ocean promenade. You look over one rooftop to enjoy the ocean. Great bakery, coffee shop, and outdoor jazz up the street; a Safeway store, the best Italian (Ristorante Avanti) and Chinese (Omei) restaurants a half mile away, plus all restaurants on the water by the Pier.

In addition to its great view of the waves from on high, this newer vacation rental has a wireless Internet, an outdoor hot tub (seats 4-5), two fireplaces (upstairs and downstairs), high-vaulted ceilings, a great sound system with 4 in-the-wall speakers, DVD players in all rooms, granite counter tops, island with bar stools, a large dining table, new appliances, and everything for the gourmet cook. Walk North along the ocean 1/4 mile to Natural Bridges State Park, or South to the lighthouse and the Boardwalk of Santa Cruz.

Enjoy TVs and DVD players in all 4 bedrooms. The house has 3 full baths with showers, 2 with tubs; an outdoor shower on the lower deck for surfers, and a large library of good books for non-surfers. Handicap-accessible, baby crib, sheets, blanket provided.

Car: Recommended

Walk out your front door to West Cliff Drive and a sea-level experience of the ocean. Walk or bike along West Cliff Drive, above spraying waves. One-half mile to Natural Bridges State Beach; many other beaches on the way to the lighthouse, Steamer Lane, and the Boardwalk. Enjoy outdoor seafood bars, many restaurants on the pier with seals to watch in the water below. 40 minutes to Monterey and its famous Aquarium and Cannery Row. A little further South to Carmel and Big Sur. Take Hwy. 1 North for a magnificent 1.5-hour drive to San Francisco.

Other Activities: Walk along West Cliff Drive, above the Pacific.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: I owned a small bungalow on this prime lot just off West Cliff Drive and rented it to summer vacationers in the '80s and 90's. It became such a popular vacation rental, I did a tear down and built a whole new, tall, two-story home designed for vacationers who like to cook, serve, and enjoy meals together. Thus, the table seats nine, great cooking gear, serving platters provided.

Why the Owner Chose Westside, Santa Cruz, CA, USA:
Every time I drive along West Cliff drive to upgrade this vacation rental, which I do a lot, I find peace, joy, and exhilaration in the Santa Cruz coastline. I've travelled in Ireland, Italy, and South America, and I think the views you see while walking along West Cliff drive beat them all.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Views, walk along the ocean, fine bedding, everything a cook could desire for food prep (a Kitchen Aid mixer!), serving, barbequing. Nice linen napkins, place mats, skillets, dishes, cups and wine glasses.
