Nothing better than waking up in the morning to fresh ocean air and seals braying in the distance. Perfect walkable location between the boardwalk and Lighthouse Point. Cottage was cozy and very clean with everything we needed.
What a wonderful cottage! Perfect for a romantic getaway, well appointed, close to everything and a gracious hostess. Thanks again for a great weekend.
We had such a wonderful time at Khristina's cottage- our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer! Khristina is the best hostess, considerate and full of sweet surprises. We can't wait to go back to this sanctuary by the sea!
Khristina was the perfect host - she made us feel at home and gave us the right amount of space. It felt like we were friendly neighbors! When we arrived, she stopped by to welcome us and provide the scoop on local eats and attractions. She also had the cottage in absolutely pristine condition - it was completely stocked with goodies and everything we could possibly need for our stay. The sweetest thing was that she left a treat on the doorstep for our little pup. It was a small, but very sweet gesture! I would definitely recommend staying at the Victorian Cottage. Not only is the location fabulous, but you'll be very well taken care of :-)
Khristina really is the perfect host! The Victorian Cottage was more than I could ever hope for in both accommodations and location. Staying there made me feel like I gave myself a real treat! Khristina also shared great recommendations for local eateries and things to do, which combined with a relaxing stay, made it the dream weekend!
Khristina was great and the cottage was perfect. If you are looking to get away for the weekend and visit Santa Cruz, this is a great rental. She keeps the houses very clean with almost everything you need for the weekend. I look forward to visiting again.
Staying on West Cliff was so fulfilling. While not only were the location and a vantage point in Santa Cruz excellent, also was Khristina, our host; we received a thoughtful and pleasant experience in every way. I could very easily write more, though I'm happy to recommend simply that if it's available and spatially suits your needs, book it.

Extroverted host seeks fun-loving guests with two and/or four legs that appreciate coastal vistas, historic architecture, and seaside living. My pet-friendly accommodations are located on the water, and close to many of the wonderful attractions that make Santa Cruz such a great place to visit.
