On the quiet West side of Santa Cruz, by the popular West Cliff ocean promenade. You look over one rooftop to enjoy the ocean. Great bakery, coffee shop, and outdoor jazz up the street; a Safeway store, the best Italian (Ristorante Avanti) and Chinese (Omei) restaurants a half mile away, plus all restaurants on the water by the Pier.
In addition to its great view of the waves from on high, this newer vacation rental has a wireless Internet, an outdoor hot tub (seats 4-5), two fireplaces (upstairs and downstairs), high-vaulted ceilings, a great sound system with 4 in-the-wall speakers, DVD players in all rooms, granite countertops, island with bar stools, a large dining table, new appliances, and everything for the gourmet cook. Walk North along the ocean 1/4 mile to Natural Bridges State Park, or South to the lighthouse and the Boardwalk of Santa Cruz.

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.
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.
Walk out your front door to West Cliff Drive and a sea-level experience of the ocean. Walk or bike along West Cliff Drive, above spraying waves. One-half mile to Natural Bridges State Beach; many other beaches on the way to the lighthouse, Steamer Lane, and the Boardwalk. Enjoy outdoor seafood bars, many restaurants on the pier with seals to watch in the water below. 40 minutes to Monterey and its famous Aquarium and Cannery Row. A little further South to Carmel and Big Sur. Take Hwy. 1 North for a magnificent 1.5-hour drive to San Francisco.
Other Activities: Walk along West Cliff Drive, above the Pacific.
