Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for another wonderful week at the beach in Santa Cruz. The new living room furniture is super comfortable, exceptionally supportive, and very easy to keep clean (leather is great at the coast!). We spent hours reclined watching the waves along West Cliff. This was the most relaxing trip of the year. We appreciated the updated kitchen and very organized drawers. Everything was top notch. As always, we will return and continue to refer our family, friends, neighbors, and coworkers. You do an amazing job.

Best Beach Experience: Highly Recommend To All!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed an amazing stay at this oceanfront house at the beach on West Cliff Drive in Santa Cruz. Very clean and well equipped with everything we needed for a fabulous experience. Supreme views from most windows in this house, and great front and back patios (also with ocean views). We loved this house and location - close to everywhere we wanted to go. Would return in a second... Thank you!

Great beach house on the ocean in Santa Cruz. Exceptional value for oceanfront experience . Would stay there again, and recommend to others. Hostess was very nice, brought us wine, and gave information about the beach and local area. Great house with superior location on the west side. Thanks for a memorable stay!

My family spent the week between Christmas and New Years at the Santa Cruz property. The owners, who meet us when we arrived, were very helpful, walked us through the house explaining how appliances and electronics were operated, filling us in on good places to eat and things to do in the area. This special treatment demonstrated the care the owners have for this property. The house itself was very clean, comfortable, and well-stocked for a perfect holiday get away. Due to the weather we didn't use the outside areas but the beautifully landscaped private patio would have been a great place for the family to gather for drinks or dinner. The big picture windows in the family room provided a front row seat to the ocean. Sunsets and sunrises were a special time of day and one morning when we were watching one of the holiday bowl games on tv we were treated to magnificent show when a whale decided to surface and play right outside our window. This property provided the perfect venue to relax, recharge, and catch up with family.

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

Beach House is truly a hidden gem. One story, so very accessible to the 55+ crowd that does not want to deal with stairs, but yet still has a fantastic view of the ocean from the living room, front bedroom, kitchen and dining room. Kitchen is full stocked with all the utensils and spices you would need to prepare a gourmet meal.

West Cliff Dr is a beautiful walk from Natural Bridge to the Boardwalk.

We saw more whales in three days than we saw in ten days in Hawaii.

The owners and host were great to work with and we look forward to going back next year.

Great Vacation Get Away

  • 5 of 5

This is a very well kept home with a wonderful ocean view. We saw more whales from out front porch in two day then we did in a week in Hawaii. Walk 1/2 mile south and the whales are within 100 yards of you.

This house everything you need to make gourmet meals, or cook out on the grill on the back yard area. Seems like there is always a nice cool breeze off the ocean.. We are looking forward to coming back here next year if possible
