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.

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!

UPSCALE HIDEAWAY STEPS FROM STEAMER LANE

  • 5 of 5

I was absolutely thrilled with this hidden gem. Located just steps away from the beach, off West Cliff Drive, you cannot find a more perfect place for an intimate getaway, or a vacation spot for a small family. The furnishings are exquisite and comfortable in this recently renovated apartment. The kitchen contains new stainless steel appliances, and everything you need should you decide to spend an evening at your seaside dwelling. Beautiful balcony to watch the sun rise and enjoy your morning coffee. The bathroom, was also equipped with new furnishings and fixtures. I have visited Santa Cruz, Steamer Lane area several times, this time to drop my daughter for her first year at UCSC, and this was the perfect place for us to spend the last few days together while preparing for the next great adventure. Scott and Kerry were more than gracious during our stay. I would definitely recommend this property for those who are looking for a great location, and new accommodations.

Couldn't have been more perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We had to spend a few weeks in the greater Bay Area because of my wife's surgery (not allowed to fly for two weeks). She was recovered enough to travel locally, so we decided to make a mini vacation out of her forced internment. We left Santa Cruz in 2005 after having lived there for over a decade, and thought that it would be nice to "return home" for part of the two weeks

The location was perfect, close enough to the Boardwalk and Wharf to enjoy them both (walking distance), but far enough away to avoid excessive traffic or noise. One house removed from West Cliff Drive, with filtered ocean views from the unit and balcony. The space itself was nice, comfortable, and truly provided us with everything we needed. We would definitely stay again, I am strongly encouraging my son and daughter in law (living in OB San Diego) to consider taking a vacation here sometime. He grew up in Santa Cruz, and always laments how OB isn't quite SC!

Expectations met! A perfect, tucked-away 2nd-story apartment with sea lions providing the nocturnal chorus.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. The couch is a fold out couch. It turns into a queen size bed. There are extra blankets in the closet. Sorry you didnt find them or know to open the bed. We are happy to accommodate our guests when we know they need something.
