WestSide Santa Cruz Beach Getaway

Bedrooms 2
Space 900 sq. ft.
Property type bungalow
Minimum Stay 2 - 4 nights


About the property

We are excited to share this bungalow experience to enjoy as we have, a step back in time to old Santa Cruz. A century old house that was owned over 70 years by the same family. The outside shows its age and character while the inside of this charming house is a clean, comfortable retreat. Stretch out in the claw foot tub, relax by the warmth of fire, and watch the chickens hunt and peck as you enjoy a cocktail sitting in the teak chairs on the back patio.

When you are ready to explore and leave the quiet single block street, most necessities are located within a 1 mile radius. PBB (Palmetta Beach Bungalow) is a great base for easy access to restaurants, attractions, nightlife and outdoor activities. On Saturday mornings, walk to the Westside Farmer’s market, Kelly’s bakery, or Natural Bridges state park to see the Monarch Butterflies. It is a 5 short block stroll to West Cliff Drive and the ocean. There is great cycling and mountain biking, hiking, surfing, boating, fishing, spelunking, and the list goes on. Explore all of the local restaurants, breweries, and coffee shops within walking distance. Downtown Santa Cruz is a 15-20 minute walk where you can see shows at the Catalyst, go shopping, eat at many restaurants or watch a Warriors game or roller derby at the arena. The Boardwalk, a historic beachside amusement park with a 100 year old roller coaster is also an 15-20 minute walk.

Whether for a weekend, or month, come explore, enjoy and relax in Santa Cruz.

Amazing cottage, lovely hosts, great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this lovely home for two nights. We were two couples so the accommodations were perfect. The hosts were AMAZING. Very helpful, sweet and thoughtful. The house was at a great location. Quick drive to groceries, lots of restaurants, even some wineries and breweries. Great outdoor area in the back of the house with BBQ. Highly recommend staying here!

The perfect holiday cottage

  • 5 of 5

This house was an ideal place to be based for our stay in Santa Cruz. The house has everything you need and we even got to borrow boogie boards. The beds are incredibly comfortable, you can get freshly laid eggs from the chickens and the family that own it are incredibly welcoming and helpful. The standard of accommodation is very high with a well stocked kitchen and beautiful touches to the interior
