These are all within a 10 minute bike ride. If you feel like working out before you head out for some food or beverages, you can walk two blocks to Bethany Curve Open Space which is a par (exercise) course that starts at West Cliff Drive and moves six blocks inland along a dedicated green belt.

Year Purchased: 2014
About the owner: I grew up in the Bay Area and for many years our entire family would spend days and weekends in Santa Cruz. My wife grew up about 20 minutes drive from the beach on the west coast of Denmark and is a huge fan of the coastal lifestyle. She and I met in Monterey while we were in graduate school 20 years ago.
Why the Owner Chose Westside, Santa Cruz, CA, USA:
We bought this house after looking for a place to call our second home for more than two years. The first time we walked into the house we immediately knew that this was the place for us. It is peaceful, relaxing, and light, characteristics that allow us to leave behind our busy schedules of work, school, and homework during the week! Our kids love Santa Cruz and spending time on the West Side is a great fit because of the proximity to the beaches, surf and cool people. We love to ride beach cruisers, road bikes, and mountain bikes... and this area is perfect. It’s been our dream to own a home in Santa Cruz so that our kids could experience the lifestyle we had enjoyed and the lessons we had learned as children and young adults. We look forward to spending many years at this house, but we are still working in the Bay Area so we won't be living here full time for a while.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
World-class surf, great walking trails along the ocean, gorgeous sunsets, the sound of the surf from your bed at night, private backyard with mature trees.
