About Betty and Family
We enjoy hosting couples and families at this house. When you book, please share your interests so we can create a customized arrival package for you. Many of our guests are families with two or three generations traveling together, and others are just couples. We've met so many wonderful people over the years, and are happy to share this special home with others. We look forward to hosting your stay at this oceanfront home at the beach in Santa Cruz!
Why Betty and Family chose Santa Cruz
We like the west side of Santa Cruz - it's friendly to people and dogs, with easily accessible beaches, coastal sidewalk, and forever views. We especially like the feeling of being on the ocean, the gentle breezes, and ocean sounds - especially during the wintertime. Storms can be magical at the coast. Fall is also a wonderful experience with less morning fog and sun early in the day.
What makes this House unique
We enjoy watching people walk their dogs, ride bikes, roller skate, jog, and skateboard along West Cliff Drive. The ocean views from the living room, kitchen, dining room, breakfast area, and even the backyard are wonderful. We also enjoy strolling along the paved ocean walkway to the Lighthouse Surfing Museum to watch the surfers, and beyond to enjoy the Santa Cruz Pier and Beach Boardwalk. This beach house is centrally located, and is great for people of all ages.
Local Services & Businesses
Sports & Adventure Activities
This house is literally steps to the water. It was clean and comfortable and well equipped with everything we needed to have a great stay. We sat right on the front porch and watched the sunsets while we sipped our wine. We walked to Natural Bridges beach and then we walked to the lighthouse. In the morning we were entertained by a school of dolphins swimming in the waves. The kitchen is also well equipped. I have rented some houses that dont even have a porpper pan but this kitchen had everything we needed . Down the street there is wine tasting and some really cool local gourmet shops.
We didnt want to leave.
Super beach house, friendly owner
Excellent house and beach location. Would stay there again. Very clean too.
Super stay at Santa Cruz beach house!
Nice house at the beach with excellent beach access and close to everything we wanted to do and see in Santa Cruz. Also close enough drive to Davenport, Capitala, Half Moon Bay, Monterey, Carmel, and Pebble Beach. The house was very comfortable, clean, well supplied and maintained, and had terrific views of the ocean! Located on West Cliff Drive which is lovely.
Views, Views Views. Love this home!
Words cannot describe how magnificent the view is from the living room of this beautiful home. The home has enough space for 2 families of 5 as well as an awesome backyard for bbqing. My kids love the tide pools directly across from this home. The rental rate seems comparable to other home in this area but I feel like the owner could charge more because of the location and view but I’m glad they don’t. If you want a quick weekend getaway within 40 minutes of Silicon Valley this is your home.
We visited my son who is attending UCSC and was doing the annual Santa Cruz Triathlon. The view was great, quite noisy but that's because the area is popular. The only things I would recommend is replacing the electric stove with a gas stove, and the cleaning crew forgot to put the dishes away in the dishwasher which made it difficult to wash our dirty dishes. Karen was a great host and made us feel welcome. Thank you very much!
Great beach house & experience.
Super house, well supplied and equipped for a nice week at the beach. Lovely backyard too.
OCEANFRONT: Beach in front of house, dog friendly accommodation, Natural Bridges beach and State Park, Lighthouse Surfing Museum, Walking along paved ocean walkway from Natural Bridges to Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk and Pier, Walk, Jog, Stroll, or Skate along majestic West Cliff Drive.
