About Robin

I have lived all over Santa Cruz County since the mid 70s and there is no better place to be than on the Westside! I have worked in the local medical community and enjoy the healthy outdoor activities that our lovely town has to offer. My 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

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, the Westside get the best weather in town right here!

What makes this apartment unique

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.

Very comfortable and well maintained apartment 1 block from the cliffs!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at West Cliff Hideaway for a little over a week and a half -- myself, my husband, and our 2 children ages 4 and 6. The apartment was perfect: clean and well maintained, short walking distance from the cliffs. The futon and the bed are very comfortable and the kitchen is well stocked with a variety of cooking utensils, dishes, etc. There are several large beach towels and even a beach umbrella for guests to use. We will definitely stay here on future trips to Santa Cruz! Robin is a friendly and responsive host -- readily available and easy to contact by phone or text.

Home Away From Home!

  • 5 of 5

Robin has everything you need in the fully stocked apartment. It's quiet, clean, comfortable and safe. Everything in the apartment is in working order and well kept. The garden is beautiful and well kept, as well. Robin was gracious, personable, reliable and helpful. The neighborhood is wonderful for strolls and the ocean is short two blocks away. There are many restaurants and coffee shops not too far away. We will stay there again. Thank you, Robin! Sincerely, Adrian and Patti

A lovely retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful and easy stay at Robin's beautiful home during our wedding weekend (down the road at the Seymour Center). All was very clean and comfortable: a perfect retreat from the buzz of the occasion. Highly recommended!
