About Liz

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

Liz purchased this house in 1999

Why Liz chose Westside

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.

Whales, dolphins, monarch butterfies, oh my!

  • 5 of 5

I chose this house for a reunion of old (really) school friends and it was perfect for us: comfortable furnishings, panoramic view of the ocean, and easy walking to nearby Natural Bridges State Park, where we saw marine mammals spouting and frolicking, as well as a few of the remaining monarch butterflies who cluster there each winter. Those of us who love to walk, took an afternoon stroll along the cliff to the surfing museum and on to the wharf. We were also very close to a cluster of fantastic local food sources: New Leaf Market, Kelly's French Bakery, and EL SALCHICHERO (natural local meats), not to mention the wharf for seafood, so we enjoyed preparing our own meals in the fully functional kitchen. I am grateful for the thoughtful arrangement and cleanliness of this house and will keep it in mind for future gatherings.

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.
