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.

Beautiful Home and Great Location

  • 5 of 5

The home was clean, spacious, and very comfortable for two families. Perfect location- close to Natural Bridges and the Boardwalk. Great spot for walking, bike riding, running, and watching surfers. We will definitely be back!

60 Anniversary with our family.

  • 5 of 5

Your home was perfect for our celebration time. Weather cooperated most of the time. We liked the unobstructed view of the ocean. The walks were super. Comfy beds. Can't think of anything you did not provide. Thanks again. Romy & Harold and our family.

BEAUTIFUL LOCATION!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our family weekend! It was one of the cleanest homes that I've rented, and the bed was so comfortable that I slept like a baby. It would have been a 5 star but this was the first time we had to take the sheets off the bed and lay the folded comforters on the mattress. We are usually asked not to make the bed, and one of the pillows didn't have a case on it. The trash can was broken and the salt shaker had a broken lid. I was cleaning the fallen salt all the time. Other than that, it was a wonderful stay.

Owner's Response: Hmmm the comment about the bed must be a typo. I don't ask my guests to make the bed. The trash can works fine. This is the first comment I have had. I won't address the salt shaker comment.

Perfect location and a beautiful home.

  • 5 of 5

We definitely would stay here again. Couldn't ask for a better view and lovely home. Spent 3 nights with our family while we attended a family wedding close by and it made it so convenient. We look forward to the next trip.

had a great girls annual get away!

  • 4 of 5

Clean, well maintained home, directly across from beach with a great layout. Perfect location even though it's on a busy street. We utilized the front yard in mid morning after after dinner. Owner easy to work with and house has plenty of on property parking. Walking distance to shops, coffee houses and restaurants.
