We have lived all over Santa Cruz County since the mid 70s and there is no better place to be than on the Westside! Both of us have worked in the local medical community and enjoy the healthy outdoor activities that our lovely town has to offer. Our son, who was raised here, loves to come home and go surfing, spend some time refueling at the El Palomar Taco Bar, and take in a movie or enjoy local music or live theater. There is no end to the combination of perfect days you can create with all Santa Cruz has to offer you!

Robin & Bill purchased this apartment in 2011

Our West Cliff Hideaway is in the best location in town. Just off West Cliff Drive yet tucked in a detached unit behind the main house, protected and quiet. If you wish for privacy but want the convenience of being in the middle of where it is all happening, this spot is for you. You don't have to venture far from the neighborhood to sample a wide variety of what Santa Cruz has to offer. Plus, we get the best weather in town right here!

We bike to the Westside Farmer's Market on Saturday mornings. Go for a walk along West Cliff Drive, maybe walk or bike to the wharf for breakfast or lunch, or to Kelly's Bakery! Watch the surfers at 'The Lane' near the Lighthouse on the way home. Go to the beach! (it is a 5 minute walk from here!). See an exhibit at the Seymour Marine Discovery Center! Go check out the Arboretum at UCSC! Ride your bike to Wilder Ranch! Take in the world renowned Monterey Bay Aquarium only 45 min drive from here! Do some winetasting while shopping for fresh local produce. Retreat to your quiet, private spot for some much needed rest. Enjoy reading while sipping locally crafted wine in the private patio and either have dinner in (BBQ on patio or tasty local take-out) or enjoy any one of almost too many restaurants to list in town just minutes from here. Live theater year round at UCSC and in theaters around the town. Live music all the time! So many movie theaters and bookstores. And sometimes it is just perfect to relax and do what we never let ourselves do...NOTHING!

Charming Westside apartment

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jan 7, 2013
  • Stayed: Dec 2012
While visiting my daughter and her family in early December, I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at West Cliff Hideaway! I was within walking distance of my daughter's house, but was able to have my own "space". And what a space it was! The apartment was attractive and well furnished, the bedding was comfortable and there was a cozy sitting area. The kitchen was well-equipted and the washer and dryer were conveniently located. West Cliff Hideaway is in a lovely setting and feels quite private, yet is close to beautiful West Cliff Drive and not far from the downtown area with shops and restaurants. One of my favorite ways to start the day (or end the day) was a walk along West Cliff Drive where the scenery is truly spectacular!
Robin and Bill were great...so friendly, helpful and accommodating! I look forward to returning to West Cliff Hideaway!

Owner's Response: Our place has become quite popular for those visiting local relatives for a holiday, special event or just to spend time who prefer to have their 'own space'! It is simply a pleasure to have our renters return to this cozy nest by the ocean. It was a pleasure to meet you and we welcome you back any time! Thank you so much.

Actions Speak Louder Than Words!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Apr 1, 2014
  • Stayed: Mar 2014
My mother used to say "actions speak louder than words!" This last visit to West Cliff Hideaway was our third and we have already scheduled our next visit in Sept. It is the perfect spot for when we visit our son and his family in Santa Cruz. It is a lovely, quiet, meticulously clean spot two blocks from the ocean, close to our son and close to a number of Santa Cruz attractions. The layout is wonderful; a cheerful living room, well stocked kitchen (we like to cook meals and take them over to tired parents of very small child), bedroom with lovely linens, bathroom with tub (great for soaking after babysitting) and washer and dryer. As I have mentioned in earlier reviews there are a number of thoughtful small touches that make life easier for travelers. These include a small basket of notepads, pencils and pens, and scissors; reading lights on both sides of the bed, colorful shopping bags for shopping at stores that encourage customers to bring their own bags. The owners are very welcoming and helpful. I have recommended the Hideaway to my sister and her husband who have booked a reservation for the fall as well.

There are several places I would recommend to eat easily within a mile. Cafe Iveta on Delaware St for breakfast and lunch, Kelly's French Bakery on Ingalls St for breakfast and lunch, Bantam on Fair for dinner.

And of course there is wonderful West Cliff Rd which ends at Natural Bridges Park for walks at all hours of the day

Owner's Response: We are so pleased that our rental has attracted such wonderful people. And, when they become returning guests we feel that we must be doing something right. The fact that we live so close to the ocean in such a lovely spot is clearly in our favor, but we are so grateful to have such great people return again and again. Thank you so much and we look forward, as always, to seeing you again!

Lovely get away

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Mar 28, 2014
  • Stayed: Feb 2014
Our week long stay was great! Robin & Bill were very gracious and helpful with local information. They thought of everything, even providing umbrellas and grocery shopping bags!
The apartment was immaculate with lots of natural light, and just as seen in the photos. The bed was comfortable. It has everything needed to cook and eat in.
We woke up to the sounds of sea lions wafting through the air. It is a short 2-3 block walk to west cliff drive where we walked along the ocean every day, watching dolphins and pelicans play.
For those with knee problems, there is a steep staircase to get in/out of the apartment, but there is a sturdy handrail. We loved this place and will probably go back again.

Owner's Response: We would absolutely love to see you both again! The sea life will be waiting for your return. Thanks so much for the lovely review*

We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend trip to Santa Cruz and our stay at the West Cliff Hideaway. The apartment is charming, cozy, and private. The space is clean, bright, nicely decorated, and the hosts even left a vase of fresh flowers. Robin and Bill are very welcoming and gracious hosts. Thank you for a great stay!

Amazing Place

My stay at West Cliff Hideaway was great. The place was beautiful and close to the beach. Robin did a nice job making sure the place has everything you need. It was quite and homey. The area has everything and Bill and Robin let me know where the best places to go are. The walk along the coast on this side of town is amazing. Bill and Robin were great and I will stay at there place anytime I make it Santa Cruz. Thank you Bill and Robin. Steve

Owner's Response: In the winter the waves are so dramatic and the walk along the cliff is so full of wildlife. So glad you were comfortable here, Steve, and we really hope you escape to the coast again soon!! Thanks so much for your kind words.
