Car: Recommended

The Boardwalk area dates back to the 1800's and is still going strong with one of the oldest roller coasters in the west, as well as many new rides and attractions. Salsa dancing on the weekends, volleyball, and street music add to the eclectic mix of the Santa Cruz wharf and boardwalk.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: A California native, I have been an "ex-pat" in since the early 1990's. Our new Santa Cruz home, where we are slowly remodeling to 1950's splendor, is a dream come true for us. We feel lucky to share it with others, who hopefully will enjoy it as much as we do. The sea heals all!

Why the Owner Chose Westside, Santa Cruz, CA, USA:
I grew up in southern California, and, after being abroad for a quarter of a century, am delighted to come back to the Pacific. With many friends in the area, as well as the rich academic life that the University of California offers, this is an eclectic, international community with much to offer. Here on WestCliff, which is sort of the hub of the town, everyone walks the cliffs on a promenade, indigenous to most cultures around the world. And similarly, one hears many languages spoken on these walks, not least of which is the sealife: otters, sea lions, pelicans, dolphins, and seals. It is not unusual to join the viewers at sunset to quietly pass the end of the day in the rosy glow over the ocean, and then share the unexpected applause of dozens of strangers appreciating mother natures's exit to night. Next to the property, which is on a corner, is a small community park. So our privacy is delightful, despite the community feeling of the walking path in front of us along the shore. Falling asleep to the sound of the waves, watching the sunset amongst the Monterrey pines lining the shore, or greeting the sun over the Monterey Bay- a Marine Sanctuary- is a delight beyond words. This is a healing place, and indeed, a sanctuary of the soul. In back is a separate but attached guest cottage (2 bedroom, 2 story) that is also available for rent for larger gatherings.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This home was owned by the same family since it was built in 1953, before I bought it. It has a wonderful energy, and we hope to restore it to a gorgeous showcase of modernism. The living room is completely built of local redwood, which visitors can experience in the local forests just 5 minutes away. The take-home experience though, is seeing whales breach out front of the house. Or a pod of dolphins gliding by- which happens every week. We sort of pinch ourselves each day to see if this is real!
