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 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
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.

West Cliff Hideaway

  • 5 of 5
Great vacation rental! West Cliff Hideaway is an excellent place to stay for a week. The neighborhood is quiet and safe, yet just a couple blocks from the ocean and West Cliff Drive. Many restaurants and winery tasting rooms are close by. The apartment is charming with all the little extras that make such a difference. I'd certainly recommend it highly.

Owner's Response: It was great how you settled in and really 'lived like a local' during your stay. We are in a terrific spot in town, close to everything yet quiet and private. Come back when you need a respite from the desert heat! Our coastal climate is always moderate and we love it that way! Thanks so much.

Hard to Leave, Again!

  • 5 of 5
I live several states away from California and travel to Santa Cruz regularly to visit my son, my daughter-in-law and my young granddaughter. It is such a treat (and a relief) to have West Cliff Hideaway for my "home away from home." It is truly a special space: the comfortable layout, cheerful furnishings, meticulous cleanliness, thoughtful small touches like a basket of notions and proximity to the ocean and my family. The owners are helpful but not intrusive, have lovely landscaping and a vase of Robin's garden fresh flowers are always waiting when I arrive. I have recommended the Hideaway to friends and my sister and her family will be staying there in September when we are all back for a family wedding. It is always great to arrive and it is hard to leave!!

In an earlier review I mentioned several nearby spots to eat and nearby spots to visit. The owners are also a wealth of information on Santa Cruz's many offerings. Stay here and have a lovely visit!!

Clean and Cozy

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I had a great time visiting the Santa Cruz area recently and Robin and Bill were perfect hosts. Their place is situated in a quiet neighborhood one and half blocks from Pacific where the views are breathtaking. We took advantage of the full kitchen for some meals and were the benefactors of Robin's recommendations for dining out for others.

Owner's Response: So easy to enjoy a nice meal at one of our local restaurants, or cook here if you just want to go for a sunset walk along the ocean and relax after in your own cozy nest. Glad you were so comfortable here!

Perfect quiet location

  • 5 of 5
The property was beautifully landscaped. The rental had everything you might need! Robin was very sweet and helpful. Safeway is just down the street, great little pub close by as well. We were able to walk to and from the boardwalk though the neighborhood and along West Cliff Drive. Will certainly stay here again and would even bring along my small children who would fit perfectly on the futon in the living room!

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed our location: in the middle of everything (Boardwalk, beaches, restaurants and stores) but tucked away in a quiet spot (hence the name Hideaway!). Would love to have you back with your little ones! Thanks so much.

return renter

  • 5 of 5
This is my third stay at this very conveniently located rental. I love being able to begin my days with a lovely scenic walk along the cliffs. Never know what I will encounter--this time it was watching dolphins play in the bay! This was the first time I walked down to and back from Boardwalk , downtown, wharf, etc. It was a very doable and pleasant walk. Not having the hassle of parking downtown was liberating--I could meander around as I wanted to and not have to worry about meters!
Also really appreciated all the "equipment" when we made a trip to the beach: coolers with cold packs; beach chairs; beach totes, etc. So convenient!
