Located on the beautiful Westside in Santa Cruz, across the street from Natural Bridges State Beach Park, 1 1/2 blocks to the Natural Bridges State Beach and scenic West Cliff Drive. Close to the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, Wharf, downtown Santa Cruz, University of California at Santa Cruz (UCSC) and prime surfing spots at Cowell's Beach, Pleasure Point and Steamer Lane. Walk to the gourmet market on Swift Street where you’ll find winery tasting rooms, yoga studios, coffee shops, New Leaf Market (a mini-Whole Foods), and plenty of restaurants. Updated family friendly house that is perfect for multi-generational travel.

The property is conveniently located less than an hour and a half from the Bay Area’s major cities and airports. Downtown San Jose and the San Jose Airport are approximately 30 minutes away. The San Francisco Airport is 60 minutes away, as is Carmel, Monterey, and Pebble Beach. Downtown San Francisco is 80 minutes away, and you can easily reach Sonoma and Napa in about two hours.


Our 2,100 square foot home caters to families. We have everything you might need for a baby (including a Pack N Play, high chair, and more) or a day at Natural Bridges Beach with your children (including sand toys, umbrellas, cooler, beach chairs, beach wagon for all your stuff and more), which is only a block and a half away and has seasonal lifeguards.

More importantly, with four bedrooms and three bathrooms, we have the perfect set up for a large family traveling with their nanny or other caretaker. On the first floor, you’ll find the main living areas including one bedroom with a queen-size bed and bathroom with a shower. The downstairs also has a spacious dining room, which can seat up to eight people. A spacious living room is adjacent to the dining room with a comfortable family room off of the kitchen.

Upstairs, the two kids’ bedrooms are in the front of the house and share a bathroom. One of the kids’ bedrooms has a single bed with a trundle. The other has a queen-size bed. The master bedroom is located at the back of the house, and it boasts a king-size bed, DVD player, flatscreen TV, huge soaking tub, and plenty of storage.

The backyard is another highlight of the home. It has a full outdoor living area with patio furniture (for both adults and kids) and shower with warm water that you can use to rinse off after a day at the beach. The outdoor living area gets the perfect mix of sun and shade, and it’s a great place to kick back on the weekends or at the end of a long day. The kids can also play in the backyard while you watch from the family room, dining room, or kitchen. The property is located on a safe and quiet cul-de-sac.

As mentioned, our beach house is only a block and a half from Natural Bridges State Beach, which is near scenic West Cliff Drive (great for long walks by the ocean!) and the UCSC Seymour Long Marine Lab. You can easily walk to Swift Street, where you’ll find winery tasting rooms, yoga studios, New Leaf Market (a mini-Whole Foods) and plenty of restaurants. If you’d like to venture further, the Santa Cruz Boardwalk and wharf is approximately two miles away.

Please note that we do not allow large parties or weddings at our home as Santa Cruz has strict noise ordinances.

This is a pet and smoke free home. Please no visiting pets. *A small dog may be considered with a pet resume and owner approval.**

About Me
I graduated from University of California at Santa Cruz (UCSC) back in the days when the students adopted the banana slug as the school mascot, there were no grades and Natural Bridges State Beach Park had two natural bridges over the ocean. After four years, I was ready to leave Santa Cruz for life in the big city- San Francisco! I re-discovered Santa Cruz after being gone for almost two decades and planning my 20th college reunion. The timing coincided with the birth of our child. I experienced what the area had to offer and was impressed by the changes and reassured by the familiarity. Santa Cruz is an easy getaway from our San Francisco family home. We find the drive very therapeutic with the transition from our fast paced lives to our Santa Cruz sanctuary. The 75 minute drive to Santa Cruz from San Francisco is beautiful through the evergreens on Highway 17 or by the ocean on Highway 1. During the summer, we enjoy Santa Cruz as a family and do a few high-end vacation rental weeks.

We had a fantastic time in Santa Cruz. We are a family of six people and the house was great, very spacious, very clean, fully equipped with everything we needed. The location, 250 m away from the Pacific and right next to Natural Bridges, is gorgeous. Very friendly neighborhood. The landlady is very helpful and supportive. If you need to get up to UCSC campus, there is a bus stop just around the corner. Excellent Ralf Klessen 11/6/2015 12:56:00 PM
