About the owner: Born and raised in Santa Cruz, I have a full knowledge of the hot spots that attract our abundant tourist population as well as the lesser known sights that will pique your interest and keep you coming back.
Why the Owner Chose Westside, Santa Cruz, CA, USA:
This home has been in my family for the last forty years. It is perfect not only in its size and location but its inate ability to make you feel like you are right where you need to be. My family and I love to take in the views while walking or biking around the neighborhood, and it is only a few blocks to get to the beach or grab a bite at one of the numerous eateries located nearby. It is easy to capture the essence of beach town life here at Woodrow, and we offer that opportunity to you!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Avoid the crowds with this beach house while also having access to nearby stores and restaurants. Sit on the porch and watch as others go by carrying surfboards on their bikes or skateboards, or better yet go join them! The location of this place cannot be stressed enough. Close enough to get a piece of the action while reserving the option to sit back and take in the calm and relaxed atmosphere.
