There is truly no better place to stay in Santa Cruz than directly on West Cliff Drive! West Cliff is ranked the #1 attraction in Santa Cruz. Why stay anywhere else?

Head out the front door, turn east and arrive in minutes at Lighthouse Beach, the Surfing Museum, the Lighthouse, and of course the world famous “Steamers Lane” surf spot. Keep going and you will find yourself at the Surfer Statue, Cowells Beach, the Monterey Bay Exploration Center, the Wharf and Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk.

Head North along the cliffs, and you will pass a multitude of beautiful West Cliff homes, secluded cove after cove, and find yourself at Natural Bridges State Beach to watch Egrets, take the 'Monarch Butterfly Boardwalk' through the Monarch Grove, and check out the visitors center. There's simply nothing like it.

Don’t want to go anywhere? Why not just sit on the porch and watch it all happen… Directly in front of our house the people watching is fantastic as is the parade of abundant sea life: otters, dolphins, whales, pelicans, and more. With binoculars, a cup of coffee, or a glass of wine in hand; sunrise, sunset, and all day long, West Cliff will put on a show, and you will have a front row seat.

Weddings and Other Gatherings Considered for an Additional Fee.

Please call Gretchen, with booking inquires and questions.

A very family functional house!

  • 5 of 5

The home accommodated our family ages 8 months to 66 years effortlessly. (The dog had a great time too!) We loved the functionality of the space and the availability of entertainment for all ages. So close to beaches, downtown and the Boardwalk. Very enjoyable.

Excellent location, fully stocked, and spectacular views.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a family holiday vacation during Christmas, and the place was wonderful. The ocean is just across the street, the Boardwalk is a nice walk away. The house is big enough for a large extended family, if everyone coordinates the two bathrooms in advance.

Perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

Our older kids were able to walk or ride to the boardwalk. The bikes are great. The house is well equipped. Awesome to sit on the front porch for meals or otherwise and take in the view. They even have binoculars and a telescope. Loved the spa and the Bocce court.

Brought my own mountain bike and rode to Wilder Ranch State Park for a nice ride along the coast line.

The walking/biking path from about the boardwalk to Natural Bridges state park seems to be a jewel of Santa Cruz and the constant activity happens with a view right form inside or outside the house.

Had a blast!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 stayed and had a great time. The house was right across the street from the ocean which was beautiful. There were plenty of rooms and they were all very comfortable. The kids had a great time in the backyard with the Bocce balls, trampoline and Jacuzzi. It was a huge bonus for us to be able to bring our dog with us too. The house was close to everything and we walked most places. This was our first visit to Santa Cruz and staying here made it that much more enjoyable. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a great family vacation spot.

Great spot for family gatherings

  • 5 of 5

We had 10 adults and 5 kids (plus additional daytime guests) visiting for the Christmas/New Years holiday week. House was cozy but had everything we needed. Comfortably seats 8 adults at the dining table. Backyard was great for both day and night activities, especially for the kids. Great location with a wonderful view (we even saw a whale out the huge front picture window!). We would stay here again.

Extraordinary Family Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

I'm not sure how this house could get more perfect for a family reunion! The house itself is immaculate, spacious and well-equipped. The yard is large, private and frankly astonishing - bocce ball, hot tub, super grill, chairs, and truly something for everyone. The view over the water from the front is breathtaking. We had 5 little people under 9, 3 people 58+ and 5 parents for our getaway. Everyone loved the house and the location - incredibly easy to get to the Boardwalk/downtown, the beaches, the state parks. The outdoor shower meant our family could rinse off the sand and easily keep the house clean with minimal effort. The securely fenced yard meant that the cousins could run around outside with minimal adult interference, and they were thrilled. When we had questions the property managers called us back immediately and were extremely helpful and gracious. If you want something beautiful, fun, and easy for everyone in the family, don't look any farther.

There's simply nothing like it.

From the Lighthouse to Natural Bridges State Beach its 2.5 miles. There are benches along the way in case you need to rest.

“The view rivals Big Sur and the Amalfi Coast, Italy. Very few places in the world can rival it.”
