                  Pleasure Point is on the northern Monterey Bay in Santa Cruz County, California, Pleasure Point is a world renowned surf location. Traditionally defined as the area along the coast from 41st Ave to Moran Lagoon, up 30th Ave to Portola and over to 41st Ave down to the sea at the 'Hook'. It is a prime example of surf culture. From the time of the Costanoan through the Spanish missions in California, into the time of the Californios and the breakup of the Ranchos to the development of the Coastal cottages and businesses, the Point has had a rich and interesting past. In the more modern times of Prohibition, Pleasure Point, with the speakeasies that gave the area the name 'Pleasure Point' and through the development of the surf culture, this area has been a place of distinction along the California coast. Live like a local and enjoy the primo area of Santa Cruz. Pleasure Point an experience like no other. *SantaCruzWIKI*

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2006

                  About the owner: Homeowner Bryan Garrison has 2 children and is an avid surfer, paddle boarder and all around waterman. The whole family loves the outdoors are all very active. The family loves to travel, but has such a deep love for the people and the warmth of Santa Cruz, there is no place he would rather be. Most evenings you can find him down on the beach as his lab Jake dives for rocks in the ocean, the kids covered with sand...their faces bright with smiles.

                  Why the Owner Chose Santa Cruz:
                  Our family loves spending time in Santa Cruz. We are a surfing, ocean exploring family and over the years here, we find we are surrounded by a community unlike any other we have found. Kids playing in the streets until dark, walking on the beach as the sun sets, saying hello to neighbors at every turn. Our home is just a block from the beach and some of the best surf spots in Santa Cruz. There are markets and cafes within walking distance and the quaint town of Capitola is just a short bike ride away. The Spring and Fall are our finest seasons, with warm clear days and no summer fog. There is so much to do in Santa Cruz, one just need to be pointed in the right direction!

                  The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
                  The Bamboo Garden Studio has all of the amenities of home, just a bit closer to the beach! We have a fabulous hot tub for 4 surrounded by a bamboo garden. Outdoor seating and a gas BBQ grill for warm evening cooking fresh fish from the farmers market. On chilly nights there is a small corner fireplace that quickly turns the studio into a cozy getaway. We have furnished the space in clean, elegant island decor that is soothing and always immaculate. 2 new cruiser bikes are at your disposal for exploring the coast by bicycle, and boogie boards, sand toys and towels are on site already so you don't have to pack extra gear. Since the studio is nestled behind our family home, we are always near by in case you have a question about local restaurants or the best dog friendly beaches. We offer surf lessons as well as Honeymoon packages, fresh grocery delivery and many more extras upon request.
