Khristina purchased this Cottage in 2001
Why Khristina chose Santa Cruz
Location, location, location! This property is centrally located, and works out very well for those that are interested in experiencing and exploring our beautiful central coast. There is ample room in the adjacent garage for the storage of bikes, kayaks, surfboards, or other items you may be bringing with you. Beach towels provided. Private, sunny patio perfect for enjoying morning coffee.
What makes this Cottage unique
Private, stand alone unit with no shared walls. We are close enough to the water that one can easy hear the waves crashing at night, and the occasional barking of the sea lions. :-) We are quite literally less than 200 steps from the nearest coastal access point (Cowell's Beach steps). Full service beach with facilities (showers, bathrooms, etc) is less than 1/4 mile away, and a 10 minute walk. Pet friendly, and four legged visitors seem to love the area as well! Please ask in advance about applicable fees is traveling with your animal companion.

This quiet tucked-away little cottage off of gorgeous West Cliff in Santa Cruz was a wonderful close-to-home get-away for us. We loved the comfortable amenities and how friendly and accommodating Khristina was in making our stay special. We loved it! Thank you, Khristina!
Clean, private, convenient, and cozy
The cottage is just what we wanted. It is a one minute walk to scenic west Cliff drive. A five minute walk to the wharf and boardwalk and a 20 minute walk to downtown Santa Cruz. We used the stove and oven for a couple of light meals. The tub shower is a bit small but worked well. Khristina was very helpful whenever we needed to ask a question. Cottage has everything we needed for a comfy one week stay. The enclosed patio was private, quiet and a delightful
place to relax at the end of the day. We’re looking forward to returning.
The cottage was very nice and had everything!
We were next to the ocean and close to the boardwalk, dog park for our dogs and the yard was perfect for our pups🐶🐶. Khristina made our stay wonderful😃
Location, location, location!
What a treat to sleep in a quiet neighborhood, and yet be steps from West Cliff! We loved our stay here and would recommend it to singles, couples, and couples with one child. Our host quickly replied to our questions.We enjoyed a comfortable bed and a private courtyard for morning coffee, or afternoon drinks. We liked having a stove for light cooking, and a huge bathroom. But the best is having the ocean across the street! We plan to return. Thanks for the wonderful place, Khristina!
Everything suited our lifestyle perfectly
A clean well kept property. Just a short walk from the Boardwalk / Wharf and surf shops. We will do this again ...soon.
Very attractive and so close to the beach
