Property description

Less than 200 steps to the closest coastal access and world class surf, close to downtown, and easy and scenic 10 minute walk to the world famous Boardwalk, Santa Cruz main beach, and municipal wharf. The garden cottage is very charming, and is located on the grounds of historic landmark home, Epworth-by-the-sea. The unit was originally built in the late 1800's, and was used as a caretaker's cottage. It comes fully furnished, and includes basic cable and WiFi access (recently upgraded). Pets are welcome for additional fee if arranged in advance. Modern amenities with the charm of a bygone era.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: Homeowner is an extrovert, but will take cues from guest as to how much interaction they would like. I live in the main house, and am available to guests 24/7 to answer any questions you may have about local attractions and activities. Observation of privacy can be expected at all times.

Why the Owner Chose Westside, Santa Cruz, CA, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
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.
