Comfortable family home with great location.
What a fantastic week! Such great access to water, redwoods, and Wilder Ranch. Loved all the little touches that made us feel at home. Thanks for creating a space to enjoy a great family vacation in the sun!
We have been coming to Santa Cruz for 18 years, mainly to see our son who lives on the West Side. We've rented all types and sizes of places. If you really want a GREAT place at a GREAT location, this is it. If the date you want to come to Santa Cruz is open for this home, book it, because someone else certainly will!
This house was excellent. It had all of the amenities you could imagine, everything smelled and looked freshly cleaned. The outdoor space was so great to have - fire pit, eating area, barbeque, lawn... The pull out couches are VERY comfortable. My friends slept in the rooms (they said beds were great) & I stayed on the pull-out couch and didn't feel like I got the short end of the stick. Management was so nice & welcoming. It was an overall lovely experience. When I visit Santa Cruz again, I will DEFINITELY use this home again.
We had a wonderful long weekend stay in this house. This house comfortably accommodated two families (4 adults and 4 young kids) and it came equipped with everything we could think of and more. The kids enjoyed playing in the back yard and they absolutely loved sharing a room with the bunk beds and exploring the games in the house. The location is great with many activities a short drive away. We highly recommend this house!
This house had everything we needed for our week in Santa Cruz with our our son and his family (a 3-year-old and a 10-month-old). We especially loved being so close to the walkway along the coastline and took walks there at least once and sometimes twice a day. The backyard was a great place for the children to play, as was the beach, a short distance away. We had never seen a redwood forest, so our visit to Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park was a highlight; it also gave the 3-year-old a chance to run! This may seem like a little thing, but I really appreciated having so many hangers in the closets and so many towels (for bath and beach) available. When the living room TV went out, a call to the owner elicited an apology for the inconvenience and a replacement TV the very same day -- pretty impressive by any standards! Our family highly recommends this property!
Without a doubt, we will book here again the next time we go to Santa Cruz. The house itself is super clean (and I'm picky), well stocked with everything you'd need (tons of kitchen supplies, loads of towels, beach gear, games, books), and has a great floor plan with the bedrooms near the back of the house. The furniture is all very comfortable - beds, couches, tables - and the backyard is perfect for al fresco dining and romping around for the kiddos. Neighborhood is quiet despite being 100 yards from West Cliff (amazing views and a terrific foot/bicycle path that runs along the ocean) and very close to Natural Bridges. It's only a 10-minute walk to Kelly's French Bakery, Westend Tap & Kitchen, and New Leaf market, and the more touristy Santa Cruz attractions are all within a very short drive.
I used to live in Santa Cruz for years, so I know it very well. Believe me - this location can't be beat, and this house is just fabulous.
The owner Kathleen and manager Kimberly are top-notch. Very responsive and incredibly helpful and kind. You really get the sense that this property is very cared for, and their guests receive the same attentive care. This rental is a fabulous find!
We just returned from a short visit to the Westcliff Getaway house. The home was wonderful--the house was immaculate and every detail was taken care of. Seven of us stayed at the house (3 generations) and we all found it to be very nice. We are walkers and since the Westcliff Getaway house is only 4 houses in from the west-side pathway, we were thrilled. The path runs from Natural Bridges all the way to the Boardwalk and is right on the bay. We were fortunate enough to spot several dolphins and two whales! The property managers were very attentive, responding to texts and emails promptly. We will definitely return!
Please note that we are situated next to VRBO listing 318241 if you require an additional rental property for any friends/family or a larger group.
