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.

Big bedrooms with very comfortable beds, great kitchen, beautiful bathrooms, plenty of seating in the dining room for family dining and poker, fantastic living room, but the view...the view is stunning!!

Great location! Driving 17 over the mountains was hairy (8 bad accidents) so we drove up highway 1 to Half Moon Bay. A delightfully beautiful drive!

Very nicely decorated house, beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

This house sits across the street from the bay and has a wonderful view. The owners have obviously value quality, cleanliness, and great maintenance. Liz was great about getting back to me when I had questions before and during our stay. All was as promised. I'd love to stay here again and I recommend this to others.

Our family enjoyed a great whale watching cruise that weekend and got a chance to walk the pier and also the cliff walk that runs right across the street from the house.

Amazing Location!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a small family reunion last weekend at this amazing location right on the water. We could see whales from the living room! We enjoyed an intimate dinner on the patio and breakfast in the well stocked kitchen with an ocean view. We took many walks on the paved path right out the front door. We walked to the wharf and Natural Bridges where we witnessed the life cycle of the monarchs and enjoyed sea otters and dolphins frolicking in the ocean. The Seymour Center aquarium tour was entertaining and educational. One day we ate at Gilda's on the wharf (I think its been there since 1930) where we were able to see the boardwalk on one side and the beach on the other side from our table. We also went to Café Cruz which seems to be a local favorite. I recommend patio seating. The bar is very noisy. Santa Cruz has a great vibe and we would like to go back to this property. The owner, Liz, is very nice. We called her and she was very responsive to our needs and gave us back the full deposit. Helen

Very nice home in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here for a long weekend. Everything was as expected and more. (the nightlights are a nice touch) The layout of the home worked very well for us. The location of the home is a huge plus. We loved to watch the waves right from the comfort of the living room. We will definitely be back
