IDEAL FAMILY VACATION HOUSE IN SANTA CRUZ
Take a deep breath, relax and enjoy! We welcome you to enjoy our vacation rental getaway just steps away from the ocean.
Breathe in the freshness. We are close to a lot of Santa Cruz beaches, yet our location is just far enough to be away from the hustle and bustle. Take a long walk or bike down West Cliff Drive, visit the lighthouse, or stop at one of the many Santa Cruz beaches.
Relax in our newly remodeled home decorated with a coastal feel. Our goal is to provide families with a warm and inviting home away from home. Wake up and sit out on the front patio with a morning cup of coffee. And unwind in the evenings with a BBQ on the patio or lively conversations by the fire pit.

Great stay for our large family
Clean, organized, fully stocked. Great location. Comfy, charming. Great coffee machine, electric stove. Great communication with owner/manager.
Fantastic house and location!
The West Cliff house was perfect for my family. It was great to be able to spend time here together and easy to get to downtown and UCSC.
The house and yard are immaculate. The towels and linens are top quality. The owner provided many thoughtful details such as beach towels, chairs and bodyboard, Kuerig
pods as well as books and games which my family enjoyed. We hope to make it back to this beautiful spot someday!
West Cliff - location and comfort
Thank you to the Frosts for sharing their comfortable and well equipped home. Just a few steps from the cliffs, the sound of surf could be heard from the front yard. Every need was anticipated and I appreciated the notes throughout the house telling location of necessities. The bonus was the park at the end of the street where little ones could play and basketball for the big ones.
So glad the house met your needs Marcie...we appreciate your kind review and knowing that you enjoyed your stay in Santa Cruz! Thrilled you were able to make use of nearby Derby Park, a popular local favorite! http://westsidesantacruz.org/derby-park.html Thanks for taking such great care of the house - we hope to see you back in Santa Cruz whenever your schedule permits!
House is surprisingly spacious, clean and charming
We rented the house for an extended weekend for our son's graduation from UCSC. We had 11 family members from CO & IN and of various ages and needs. First of all the location is amazing. It is 3 houses from West Cliff Dr and the ocean, it is also 1/2 mile from Natural Bridges Beach & picnic area. This is the quiet side of town and once here you wont have to deal with the traffic on Mission at all! A huge plus for us. The house itself is clean well taken care of and fully furnished for 12. The master bedroom is quite large, and the other 2 are above average in size. The kitchen is fully equiped and there is a large pristine gas bbq in the yard. We had a memorable, fun 4 nights here with family and hope to return. Kudos to Kathleen who made us feel at home and helped us with a couple of small personal situations that arose. Wonderful vacation!!
We truly appreciate your very detailed and kind review Tonya...always great to hear that our guests enjoy their stay in Santa Cruz! Congratulations again on your son's graduation from UCSC! Very thoughtful of you to let future guests know the many positive attributes of the West Side and the many amenities of the home. All the best!
I'm not going to write a perfect review because I don't want it to be booked next time I go to Santa Cruz.
Brilliant review...can't argue with your logic! You were ideal guests and will always be welcome back. Hope you make it back to Santa Cruz whenever your schedule permits. Thank you!!
Lovely home near the ocean
We loved staying at this house. It is just a half a block from the ocean and West Cliff Drive, along which we took daily walks and enjoyed the beautiful views and fresh ocean air. The house is adorable, beautifully decorated, clean, and comfortable, with larger gathering spaces and plenty of beds. The kitchen is fully appointed; we made many of our meals at home. And the outdoor spaces are wonderful for grilling, enjoying meals on the patio, roasting marshmallows over the fire pit, and just enjoying the fresh air. We love the west end of Santa Cruz. An easy walk from this house can take one to a yoga studio, a French bakery, a brewery, several wineries, a great restaurant, and a candy store, among other offerings. We biked to Wilder Ranch for another view of the ocean, and to scout for whales (and dolphins), and to Natural Bridges State Park. The owners of the home are warm, hospitable, and accommodating. We were fortunate to be able to stay here for a month and to host our children who live in San Francisco for part of that time-- and we loved every minute of it!
Thank you for your incredibly thoughtful and detailed review and for letting others know more about what the West Side has to offer. It was such a pleasure to meet you both during your month-long stay...we could not have asked for more considerate and responsible guests! We hope that you are able to return again whenever your schedule permits. Until then, thank you again for taking the time to write such a kind review and for taking such good care of the house throughout your stay!
