Santa Cruz has 29 miles of sand and surf that make Santa Cruz the home of surfing, a sport that connects you to the sea in a way that nothing else can. Cowell's Beach, Steamer Lane, (a favorite surfing spot), Twin Beach, and Castle Beach, are near the Santa Cruz Wharf.

Driving south of Pleasure Point, you will find Manresa Beach, La Selva, Capitola Beach, Seacliff Beach (sunken cement ship), Seascape Beach, and Sunset Beach (romance ).

Driving North of Pleasure Point, check out the Santa Cruz Harbor; discover Light House Field State Beach (good surfing and great place to walk dogs).

Natural Bridges State Beach, known for its tide-pooling and famous natural rock bridge, feels secluded but is easily accessible from the road. This state park is a Monarch Butterfly sanctuary for as many as 100,000 butterflies that are drawn to the mild ocean air and eucalyptus grove in the winter months.

Further north are: Wilder Ranch Beach (historic site), Davenport Beach (tiny town with a good bakery),and Four-mile Beach (known for beach parties), Scotts Creek Beach, (a favorite for beach combing ) Wadell Creek Beach, a (a good spot for wind-surfing) Bonny Dune Beach and Red-White-Blue (clothing is optional).

The county is also blessed with 14 state parks, including the popular Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park, accessible by steam train from the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. This is a trip through the redwoods and back, even if you don’t like to hike. Check the schedule before you go. If you want more adventure: Hike, ride a zip line or train through the beautiful redwood forests of the Santa Cruz mountains.

If you have a loved one that is college bound, be sure to check out the UCSC Campus.

There are plenty of places in Santa Cruz County to end the day with a glass of wine and a fresh plate of seafood. The pier at the Boardwalk is one favorite places to toast the sunset. The Shadowbrook Restaurant in nearby Capitola would be a wonderful place for a speccial dining experience. Fragrant gardens and rustic creek-side location add much to the ambience, not to mention a quaint cable car that takes you down to the restaurant and lounge to enjoy live guitar music and happy hour.

                                    Four of us journeyed from afar to meet in a cottage near the sea. We had a fabulous time at this surprisingly centrally located property. Our one week living on Pleasure Point allowed us to play in many places. We visted San Francisco to drive through, saw the Aqaurium at Monterey, picniced under the tall redwoods in San Lorenzo Valley, kayaked in Elkhorn Slough and shopped for books in Santa Cruz. The property was older but well maintained and up to date. We loved our front yard barbeque as much as our dinner on the houseboat at the Monterey Wharf. The kitchen was new, clean, and had the basics. The beds were comfortable, the bathroom a little larger than expected and the neighbors all quiet. The owner was prompt in replies and and accurately represented the property. All and all this was an excellent choice for our not quite annual get-to-gather. Lolly, Lindley, Ferd and Beth

                                    Great location and nice place. A few comments - it turned out to be quite cold in evening but it took us forever to locate the thermostat. Similarly, we had some trouble with the tv controls and had to guess what gets placed in what bin in Santa Cruz. A little sheet with some guidance to strangers on such matters would help.

                                    My husband and I stayed here to celebrate our son turning one! We had a fabulous time and this cottage was an ideal home base for our daily adventures around Santa Cruz. We enjoyed dinners on the front lawn, strolls along east cliff right above the ocean, and spending time at Moran State Beach (my favorite beach in Santa Cruz and was so thankful it was in walking distance!) The room with toys was wonderful to have for my busy toddler - kept him occupied to explore new things! Lorraine was prompt in returning our phone calls with questions and made our stay comfortable. We really hope to return again!!

                                    We stayed in this 2-br cottage for 3 months in 2013 while my husband worked in Silicon Valley. We enjoyed our time a lot - just forgot to do the review :-) Our family of 2 adults and 3 kids (8 years, 3 years and 6 months at the time) fitted in surprisingly well. The location of the cottage is absolutely wonderful. Just a block or two to the ocean at Pleasure Point, you can almost hear the waves crashing the shore. We even swam a lot (had wetsuits) at Moran Lake beach and at 38th Ave (?) beach. 41st Ave shopping (O'Neill outlet!) is within walking distance. The area is very peaceful and it's not all vacation rentals, but local residents, too. Santa Cruz is a short drive away, and you can even take the bus, the stop is a few blocks away. SC Beach Boardwalk season passes are a must for kids, if you plan to visit there more than once. Also be sure to try the marvellous cupcakes at Buttercup Cakes (109 Locust Street, just off Pacific Ave). And of course you need to visit the easily accessible fabulous state parks with their magnificent redwood trees! In the house, toys, high chair and crib were great, and the hosts even brought extra toys during our stay. The spacious master bedroom is a couple of steps lower than other rooms and the bed there at least last year was a bit worn, the 2nd bedroom had newer beds. Bathroom is large but a bit worn and thus difficult to keep clean. The garden is pretty and seems to be blooming with some lovely-scented flowers at all times, the shared laundry is conveniently located at the back of the house, and parking is right in front of the house. The owners are responsive, so if you have any problems, contact them, they are sure to help with reasonable requests - during our stay we got a new TV, barbeque and deck chairs - so they do upgrade things that need replacing! This is a very well established rental which gives you peace of mind knowing your hosts are experienced, won't cancel your reservation on a whim and you get your deposit back quickly. But that also means the house has been there for a while, and as they accept dogs, naturally some furnishings will be worn, as it has not undergone a complete renovation just recently. The price is very good for the area, so we thought we got a good deal and were happy. We enjoyed lovely Santa Cruz and this was a perfect place to stay for us - a good choice for anyone! Only wish we could go back to our "America home" as our 3-year old still says!

                                    Disappointed with the interior, furnature was stained, kitchen floor needs replacing, and the bathroom needs some elbow grease. I am a neat freak, and was grossed out at the bathroom!

                                    Owner response: The upholstered furniture has been cleaned; the bathtub has be re-caulked and the kitchen will have a new tile floor within a week. Renovation and upgrading the property is an ongoing adventure. Satisfaction and comfort of our guests, together with affordability are important considerations.

                                    Stayed here 4 days while visiting our daughter at UCSC; this was a great location situated in a very nice, safe neighborhood and the 2 brms, 1 ba + kitchen and living room provided enough space for us all to share (parents & 2 college kids). Also nice having a TV in more than one room. "Master" brm has queen bed, large closet, desk, dresser, window seat & TV; 2nd brm has twin beds, bedside table and closet (with toys!) "Master" brm has 2 steps down into room, FYI. Fairly spacious bathroom has sink/vanity, toilet and enclosed tub/shower combo. Full kitchen was well equipped and it was great not having to eat every single meal & snack out. [For those of you who're considering renting a place vs. hotel--THIS is why we now rent local homes, apts, etc. whenever we stay more than 2 nights anywhere, esp with a family; SO much more comfortable!] In addtion to all needed kitchen utensils, pots, dishes, glasses, small appliances, etc. there are some basic staples (salt & pepper, assorted spices, olive oil, tea, etc.) so one could buy groceries and make a meal without having to procure every little item, which we found very handy. Beds were comfortable and there was plenty of extra bedding to snuggle up in, if desired (though the cottage has nice heater for misty mornings). We walked along the lovely East Cliff drive every morning (2 short blocks away) and watched surfers and amazing & very active sea life at Pleasure Point (a world-class surf spot). Saw jumping dolphins, diving pelicans & surfing seals (or were they sea lions?) This is a very nice & safe paved wide walkway & bike path along the cliffs overlooking Montery Bay and is popular with locals and dog walkers. (There was a surf contest for kids the Saturday we were there and it was fun to see the festivities--but still not too crowded for others to enjoy.) There are also 2 handy restrooms along this walkway. We also loved having the little market/cafe at Pleasure Point nearby (great quesadillas & coffee!) Short drive to downtown SC and the Boardwalk or to Capitola. It just doesn't take that long to get anywhere around SC so were glad we opted for this location. Am giving 5 stars even though decor and finishings, while clean, comfortable and functional, were not luxury top, top quality--but we weren't paying for that either--and we found this to be an excellent value for our needs and would highly recommend it to others. Communication with the owners was excellent and booking was a breeze.

                                    Our family of 4 + our dog just spent a fabulous few days at this Beach Cottage. For us the location was ideal. My husband and boys went to surf and I went to walk with my dog. We all got what we wanted and we didn't get in our car once during our stay. Pleasure Point surf break is 3 blocks away and the dog friendly beaches and walking paths surrounded this darling neighborhood. The cottage was perfect for our family of 4 and wouldn't recommend trying to comfortably squeeze any more people in. We will return for sure!!

                                    My boyfriend and I spent last weekend at this cottage for his birthday and were very comfortable. The owner provided us with a great list of things to do and restaurants to try that made planning the weekend much easier. It is a quick walk to the beach and the neighborhood is adorable- we loved walking around and looking at all the unique houses. The cottage itself is very basic, but suitable for our needs. Our only complaints were the couch and comforter on the main bed were both stained and it seemed like all the furniture in general could use an upgrade or at least a good scrub down. The bathroom was nice and spacious and the second bedroom looked great if you had little ones (we don't).

                                  Year Purchased: 1979

                                  About the owner: After teaching for thirty-four years and maintaining cars, airplanes and properties for even longers, we have become 'snow birds'. Creating 'home' along the west coast has been a life long passion; and, we enjoy sharing our talents and creations with others.

                                  Why the Owner Chose Santa Cruz:
                                  We love the ambience, especially the fresh ocean air and natural beauty of Montery Bay, and the powerful surge of waves on the beach. There is a wealth of outdoor activities; and, access to the San Francisco peninsula is easy from the Santa Cruz area.

                                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                                  Where else in the world can we comfortably stroll so many beaches, walk the dog in the Light House Field or along the marsh, ride horsback through the nearby redwood forests,or go kyaking in Elk Horn Slough? One of our continuing favorites is to watch the otters, birds, and sea lions play in the estuary while enjoying a fine dinner at the Fish Factory in Moss Landing.
