About the property

3 Blocks to the Beach!

This beautiful new second story apartment is a quiet getaway from the craziness around 'vacation santa cruz'. A brand-new full kitchen with skylights and gas range make this an ideal place to set up a home away from home. The fold-out sofa turns this charming one-bedroom into a great space for two couples or a family. Very private and comfortable, this space is loved by all who stay here.

Great Location! Just three blocks to gorgeous West Cliff Drive and Lighthouse Field. Just a short walk to Famous Steamer Lane surf spot and the beloved Santa Cruz Lighthouse and Surfing Museum. Head North to beautiful Natural Bridges State Park and Beach. Minutes to downtown restaurants, movie theaters, bookstores, shopping and more. A short hop to The Santa Cruz Wharf, the Boardwalk and Harbor.

Overall good place. Three blocks from the beach.

  • 4 of 5

Overall it was good. Nice location secure clean and very quiet neighborhood. Mattress very uncomfortable. Had to purchase several things that in my opinion should have been included ie trash liners , dish soap, and sponges to clean dishes. No hot pads to get things out of the oven. Host was great. Offered a lock to lock our bicycles in the back yard.

Owner's Response: Oh no! I'm sorry you felt you had to buy those things. We have all those available and ready for the apartment. This may have been an oversight on the cleaning crew not to replenish. I will talk with them about making sure that doesn't happen again. The mattress in the main room is brand new this spring. We picked a fairly standard model, not too soft, not too hard. This is the first we've heard that it was uncomfortable. Apologies that it didn't work for you!

Perfect weekend

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful place, felt like home. Could have stayed a month and been happy. It was perfectly located between being too far away from the action and too close to the action! Thank you so much to the owners who were so wonderful to help make this arrangement.

Great place! We liked the location!

  • 4 of 5

Comfortable beds and nice kitchen. The TV was fine, wish there was cable to watch regular TV, but the Apple TV and Playstation hook up worked for movies. I liked the close walking to the Boardwalk, Lighthouse, restaurants and walking/running paths. We would definitely consider staying there again!

Great apartment, great location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here. Had just what we needed and the extra space and kitchen that a hotel does not offer. Very quiet area. Easy to access all the west side spots. I'd recommend!

My husband and I stayed here for 2 night our 13 year olds. It was perfect for us! The kids said the pull out couch was big enough and plenty comfy. My husband and I took a walk to the beach every morning and every evening when the kids were chilling out and watching tv. The beaches were gorgeous, the boardwalk and pier were super fun!! I would absolutely stay here again when we return to Santa Cruz!!!

The Westside of Santa Cruz is one of the best vacation locations in all of California. From right out of our door we have access world class surfing, sailing, fishing, mountain biking, hiking, running and walking, and that's without getting in a car. We also are just minutes away from the Beach Boardwalk, Wharf and Harbor. Take a cruiser along the beach, hit up the roller coaster and then ride into town for top notch restaurants, music and bars. All within a 5-10 minute adventure.
