About Dorothy Webster

I owned a small bungalow on this prime lot just off West Cliff Drive and rented it to summer vacationers in the '80s and 90's. It became such a popular vacation rental, I did a teardown and built a whole new, tall, two-story home designed for vacationers who like to cook, serve, and enjoy meals together. Thus, the table seats nine, great cooking gear, serving platters provided. Teenagers and toddlers can have fun in a second living room downstairs, with a ping pong table just outside the door.

Dorothy Webster purchased this house in 2004

Why Dorothy Webster chose Santa Cruz

Every time I drive along West Cliff drive to upgrade this vacation rental, which I do a lot, I find peace, joy, and exhilaration in the Santa Cruz coastline. I've travelled in Ireland, Italy, and South America, and I think the views you see while walking along West Cliff drive beat them all.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello Dorothy,



We had a fantastic time in Santa Cruz this summer! Your rental home was perfect for us.

We really enjoyed it very much. It was beautiful! We loved the view of the ocean.



It was a wonderful stay and I wish I was there right now.

Wonderful space

  • 5 of 5
I stayed here with my father and brothers for a late Thanksgiving/early Christmas, and we had a wonderful time, It is set one house back from West Cliff Drive, which actually gives it more of a private sense, and the south facing deck was wonderful. We had sunny mornings, so sat outside and read and had breakfast every morning there, and was hard to motivate to do much of anything else. I like the upsidedown layout, with a large vaulted ceiling on the 2nd floor with open living room, dining room and kitchen. Had plenty of cooking supplies and great dinnerwear. Will definitely be returning here if possible.
Also, the owner and her liasons were wonderful, quick to respond, almost in a matter of 30 minutes with any questions and made it extremely easy to book.
So grateful to have such a wonderful space to enjoy family time in.

Happy mom and grandma

  • 5 of 5
A happy Thanksgiving week is what we had. The weather was gorgeous so we were able to sit on the large second floor patio to enjoy the ocean views with afternoon tea. We rode the bikes, walked to the butterflies, beach and even walked along the coast at night to watch the stars. I love to cook and the kitchen was wonderful. My daughters and I were amazed at how well stocked this place was including wonderful appliances and even a stand-up mixer. There was plenty of room for all of us. We had a fabulous holiday week here in this lovely home.

A Great House For Family and Friends

  • 5 of 5
The house was ideal for our annual gathering of family and friends in Santa Cruz. The common areas were spacious while the bedrooms were quiet retreats. The kitchen was well outfitted, providing us with the tools we needed for serious cooking of large family meals. There was even an extra table leaf in the closet and a high chair for the infant. Everyone was comfortable and had a great time.

The location was also perfect - just steps off West Cliff with its daily promenade of walkers, joggers and cyclists and also a convenient walk to Natural Bridges Park and beach. Other amenities – shopping, the boardwalk, many good restaurants, and even some small wineries – were a few minutes drive. We especially appreciated that the area is quiet at night and not subject to the 2 a.m. weekend cars and revelers that inhabit the Main/Cowell beach area of Santa Cruz.

Dorothy was always available and made sure that our stay was comfortable. We greatly appreciated the help that she provided. We have already booked our stay for next year.
