I have lived all over Santa Cruz County since the mid 70s and there is no better place to be than on the Westside! I have worked in the local medical community and enjoy the healthy outdoor activities that our lovely town has to offer. My son, who was raised here, loves to come home, go surfing, spend some time refueling at the El Palomar Taco Bar, and take in a movie or enjoy local music or live theater. There is no end to the combination of perfect days you can create with all Santa Cruz has to offer you!
Robin purchased this Guest House in 2011
Why Robin chose Westside
West Cliff Hideaway is in the best location in town. Just off West Cliff Drive yet tucked upstairs in a detached unit behind the main house, protected and quiet. If you wish for privacy but want the convenience of being in the middle of where it is all happening, this spot is for you. You don't have to venture far from the neighborhood to sample a wide variety of what Santa Cruz has to offer. Plus, the Westside get the best weather in town right here!
What makes this Guest House unique
Bike to the Westside Farmer's Market on Saturday mornings. Go for a walk along West Cliff Drive, maybe walk or bike to the wharf for breakfast or lunch, or to Kelly's Bakery! Watch the surfers at 'The Lane' near the Lighthouse on the way home. Go to the beach! (it is a 5 minute walk from here!). See an exhibit at the Seymour Marine Discovery Center! Go check out the Arboretum at UCSC! Ride your bike to Wilder Ranch! Take in the world renowned Monterey Bay Aquarium only 45 min drive from here! Do some winetasting while shopping for fresh local produce. Retreat to your quiet, private spot for some much needed rest. Enjoy reading while sipping locally crafted wine in the private patio and either have dinner in (BBQ on patio or tasty local take-out) or enjoy any one of almost too many restaurants to list in town just minutes from here. Live theater year round in theaters around the town. Live music all the time! So many movie theaters and bookstores. And sometimes it is just perfect to relax and do what we never let ourselves do...NOTHING!

We Will Be Back..
The property was exactly what we wanted/needed/expected. Since our plan was to be out and about during the length of our stay, coming back to a place that was clean, bright with sunshine with a wonderful breeze was amazing! I would suggest this location for all couples looking for a perfect space to call home while visiting Santa Cruz. We loved walking the neighborhood in the morning—both the beach and local coffee shop are a short walk away (coffee-7minutes; beach-under 5 minutes) The property manager, Robin, was everything we could hope for: responsive before our stay, easy to contact with any questions, made the check in process clear & easy, and was never seen but we felt comfortable knowing she was only a phone call away. We really did feel as if we had our own hideaway in Santa Cruz.
Sounds like you took advantage of all our wonderful westside Santa Cruz has to offer: two blocks from West Cliff ( the most beautiful walk along the ocean), close to restaurants/coffee shops/warehouse wineries/brewpubs...and of course our late summer weather! I've tried to anticipate what guests will need to make their trip here comfortable and relaxing, so thanks so much for your appreciation and I would love to have you back any time!
Had a wonderful time!
Good time on the coast
Had a fun time in Santa Cruz in this cute place!
Thanks for choosing West Cliff Hideaway for your birthday getaway!
VERY clean. Clear contract. Easy check in and out. Nice walk to water view. Convenient to all spots you would like to be during stay. Attentive owner and we felt very comfortable and welcome!
My goal is to create and maintain a lovely seaside nest that is welcoming and comfortable, complete with whatever a traveler would need. I'm so glad your family enjoyed their stay and thank you so much for the wonderful review!
Lovely home in perfect location
Loved to stay at Robin’s property. The flat is spotlessly clean in a quiet neighbourhood. It’s equipped with all you need for your vacation. Robin is a very kind and helpful host. I would recommend to stay at this little gem of a place to any of my friends and would rent it again myself any time. Thank you, Robin, for having us!
I would welcome your sweet family any time. It seems you took full advantage of 'living like a local'! The beach, the weather, the vibe. Thank you!
