About Robin

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

Why Robin chose Santa Cruz

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!

What makes this apartment unique

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.

Wonderful Stay!

Spent the Labor Day weekend at West Cliff Hideaway for my girlfriend's birthday. Robin was quick to respond and set us up with the rental. The rental was very cozy and clean. We had absolutely no issues. I highly recommend.

Great Getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5
My family of 4 stayed in Westcliff Hideaway for 2 nights in August of 2014. This was our first VRBO experience and we loved Westcliff Hideaway and Santa Cruz. Robin and Bill were wonderful hosts and provided great local information about restaurants, sights, bike rental (we used Epicenter on Mission St), etc. The beautiful 1 Bedroom Unit was exactly as the pictures showed -- very clean, great space, nice decor and amenities, and an excellent location. We loved it and would definitely stay there again. Make sure you see Natural Bridges State Park!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5
My sister was visiting from the Midwest and I took her to the Santa Cruz area to explore. The West Cliff Hideaway was perfect. It was clean, decorated nicely, comfortable beds and everything we needed was there. The neighborhood is amazingly quiet and one night I did hear the seals as the ocean is very near by. This is my third VRBO rental I have used and was the best one yet!

Owner's Response: The sea lions, the waves crashing up against the cliff, the gentle breeze. A few reasons why we love it here! So glad you and your sister had a comfortable, relaxing visit and enjoyed our little piece of paradise. Hope to see you on a return visit soon! Thank you!

Santa Cruz hideaway!

  • 5 of 5
This is a real gem located in a very quiet area just a short walk to the beach.
Every need has been anticipated for cooking, information on the local restaurants,
Stores and of course sightseeing. I can't say enough about our hosts providing those invisible amenities that made us feel right at home.
A terrific value, why stay in a hotel?

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.
