Best Santa Cruz location, just off West Cliff. Steps to the water, very quiet. Modern, clean space, with open design. Bright and airy. Short walk to world-class beaches. Only a short drive to local shopping, bakeries, restaurants, breweries, wineries.
Has everything you need. Even fresh espresso in the morning.

The space

Listen to the surf when you fall asleep. Enjoy a good night's rest in a very quiet neigborhood. Relish the smell of the ocean while having breakfast watching the whales. Go on a world-class mountain bike ride to Wilder Ranch, start riding directly from the house. Or go surfing, a short walk right from the house to some of the best spots of the California coast. Appreciate a good glass of wine in the sun room, with a gorgeous view of the Monterey Bay. A quiet retreat.

Guest access

All the upstairs is yours. Two bedrooms, living room, dining room, kitchen, bathroom, sun room, workout area. Enjoy the front yard.
Please leave the back yard for the downstairs occupants. This is where we live :-)

Michael's house is in a dreamy location on the westside of town, just down the street from some great restaurants, stores and a bakery. Most important, it's 3 houses from Cliff drive which provided gorgeous walks, runs and scenery during our short visit. The place was spotless and there were more than enough accouterments for anything we needed for cooking or anything else. The beds were comfy and check in was a breeze. Altogether, it was a great visit and we will be back!

This home and location is beautiful! There was nothing like opening the windows in the sun room and seeing, hearing, and smelling the ocean!! Upon arrival, the place was spotless and generously stocked with extras. LOVED IT!!

What a wonderful home to stay in, right next to the ocean. The pictures don't do it justice. Just hope we can stay here again when we visit Santa Cruz. Lovely.

Michael's space is top notch. Everything is very modern and clean. The beds are comfortable and the kitchen has everything you can ever need. He offers coffee and a coffee maker, food and drinks. The views are stunning in the sunroom. This is a great vacation stay. The one major takeaway is the downstairs neighbors. We were a small group of 25-30 year olds who were just enjoying some laughs in the evenings and playing some music in the morning. We respected posted quiet hours but were confronted by the neighbors. They were both rude and disrespectful. They asked where the adult was. They let themselves into the house and went on a long confrontation about how loud we were. My advice is if you are looking to stay with more than 2 people for a vacation and you plan to spend a lot of that time in the house you should consider these neighbors.

My husband, toddler, and I had an amazing time staying in the spacious upper story of this beautiful beach house! Incredible location that is steps from West Cliff Drive, lovely beaches within walking distance, in particular Natural Bridges SB. Beautiful home space with wonderful amenities and, really, all you can ask for in a family getaway. Our toddler had a blast and so did we! Michael and the on-site host Maribel were incredible communicative and gracious, the paragon of hosts. Thank you both again!

Great place and great location. If you like walking and biking, there is an abundance of places to go. As I think others have said, the place shows much nicer than the pictures. Just rode to UC Santa Cruz this morning before leaving. This town is made for getting around on a bike. Ocean is 100 yards away and you are far enough away from the boardwalk to not have all the tourist hanging out with you. Great communication from Michael and would definitely stay here again. Cheers
