About Liz

My family owns this property. We live in near by Los Gatos.

Liz purchased this house in 1999

Why Liz chose Santa Cruz

The Catholic Church sold us this beach house. The priest built the house and the nuns were living in it. The nuns were so grateful to live in the beach house. They referred to the house as living in a area everyone wants to visit. We even have a church pew bench. We remodeled the house and turned it into a short term vacation rental to share with others.

What makes this house unique

ocean front. West Cliff is a linear park you can walk along the ocean or ride your bike for miles. Clean and well maintained house. Spectacular views.

The house has a fabulous view of ocean across the street. House was fully stock with all needed sleeping/cooking items. 7 sisters had plenty of room to visit , eat, and sleep.

Great house! Amazing views! Very clean and comfortable! Everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks so much for allowing us to stay at your home! Such a fabulous location. We were in town for a family wedding so on the go a lot but would definitely stay again if in the area so we could enjoy all the house offers. Comfy beds, house very clean, even though we did not do much cooking we could tell the house was appointed perfectly for all needs. Also appreciated that the owners were responsive when a question arose.

Beautiful home right on the water

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at this house! The home is right on the water, so you can literally walk across the street and watch the sunrise/sunset, or sit in the living room on the couch and do the same. It couldn't be a more perfect location. The kitchen is stocked to be able to do your own cooking, the living room is spacious for hangouts, and the grill/back table are perfect for an outside dinner. Will definitely stay here again!

Very clean, comfy home with good parking. GREAT location and far away from the crowds.

  • 5 of 5

My 4 sisters and I had a great "sisters getaway weekend" at this house. It was clean and comfortable with great views. Kind of a busy street, but we had a great time sitting out in the front people watching, and of course, watching the dolphins across the street in the ocean. A little bit of a hiccup at the beginning of the stay when the key was not available, but owner was available and took care of this immediately. Thanks Liz for everything!! We had a wonderful time..

Best Location On the Beach

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful vacation. The condo was spacious, well appointed with an amazing view. A minute or less from the beach and a block from town along the boardwalk...a short block.

I was so, so impressed with the friendly rental agents. Normally I don't mention that but they were terrific.

Owner's Response: Linda. Please remove your comment. I think you have this property confused with someone else's. I don't own a condo a minute from the beach or a block from the boardwalk.
