                                  Year Purchased: 1999

                                  About: My wife, our dog and I like having you and your friends & family enjoy this clean & comfortable Beach Bungalow. Check out the messages from others who have visited and left messages about how much fun they have had in this fun Beach house!

                                  Why Santa Cruz:
                                  I had a dream about finding a wonderful home at a great surfing area and when we drove up to the Bungalow, I knew we had found it as soon as we drove up. Even though it had a Sold sign on it, we told our Realtor to keep tabs on it and 1 week later we were able to buy it in July of 1999.

                                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                                  Only a short half block stroll to the middle of Pleasure Points Beach and Surf areas. After playing with our assortment of surf and boogie boards at this great point break that works for all ages and skill levels, , come back and enjoy all the bubbles in the $10,000 hot tub, and relax in the shiatsu massage chair in front of the fire stove with free firewood while watching a favorite movie from the 100's available!
