About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Relax on the sunny deck, walk along West Cliff Drive and fall asleep at night to the sound of crashing waves. Cowells Surfside is a clean, one- bedroom apartment located two houses from West Cliff, behind a main house and above the detached garage. Surrounded by plants and a garden it has gorgeous views of the Monterey Bay, Boardwalk, Santa Cruz Wharf and Santa Cruz Mountains. The apartment is fairly new and has bamboo floors, granite counters and large sunny windows. It is perfect for a couple or small family. The apartment gives you walking access to many beaches, great surf spots, the Boardwalk and SC Wharf, wine tasting and shopping. Athletes have been renting here for years to have easy access to triathlons, surf contests and bike races. Families love it for the proximity to the Boardwalk and downtown.

The location and views of ocean.

What makes this apartment unique

Walking or biking to everything. We love looking out our windows at the ocean and all the happy people on their way to enjoy the natural beauty here.

Guestbook comments from the owner

(From the guest book)

The stay was great. Wish the weather was better. Your cottage is very comfortable and the bed was very soft and cozy. We were in a surf contest, the 25th annual Longboard Invitation. My husband didnt place but we won a surfboard! Yeah!

coming back soon, thanks a lot for everything!

Great location, nice space

Only 1 block from the beach, just a few minutes walk from the pier and the lighthouse. Nice view of the water from the windows and balcony. Lots of privacy.

Italy in Santa Cruz

  • 5 of 5

This property has everything we were looking for in a beach getaway. It is half a block from the beach, it is far enough away from the boardwalk so you don't get the noise, but close enough to walk to the crowd, there is a view of the ocean from the deck, bedroom and living room, the apartment is very quiet, the property is well kept and well appointed and the owners were very responsive. Since the location is so perfect for the many surfers, you do have to vie for parking spaces on the street, but that didn't present an issue. We will defintiely be back!

Cute, quiet and perfect for a couple getaway

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location, close to the ocean where you can see the Santa Cruz Wharf and hear the sea lions. The apartment is a quiet above garage unit with comfortable decor perfect for a couples getaway. Easy access to the beautiful ocean walkway across the street and views of the local surfers. A quick walk gets you to the wharf and all the restaurants and Boardwalk.

We will definitely be back.
