Santa Cruz house description

We are almost full for the summer.... but don't worry. I have a new 4-bdr vacation rental 2-doors down. It was an existing vacation rental but has been totally revamped with lots of new and fun stuff for families. Check it out at www.vrbo.com/288684


Welcome to paradise! You are renting a great beach house in Pleasure Point area of Santa Cruz, CA, the famous surfing and hanging-out beach. The house is a 5min walk to the beach and sits 200 yards from the ocean/cliff viewable from our raised deck in the backyard. I live next door and purchased this house so visitors with kids (or just kids at heart) would have a fun relaxing time. The amenities include large backyard (for the beach) with a new game room (includes TV, 42' LCD, Wii, and a foosball table). On the back patio, we have an outdoor dining set, large stainless BBQ, ping-pong table, deck with ocean view, and of course... a large HOT TUB! In the garage, the fun continues with surfboards (beginner and experience riders), boogie boards, wetsuits, beach chairs, umbrella, kids beach toys, red wagon, beach cruisers etc. All for your entertainment and entertaining.

The house has 5 bedrooms.
1) The 'master' bedroom with a King Bed and private bathroom.
2) The 'guest' bedroom with a Queen Bed
3) The 'kids' bedroom with a Twin over Full bunk bed
4) The 'breezeway' bedroom with a pull-out/pop-up trundle daybed (two twins or put together for a king)
5) The 'office' bedroom with a twin day bed, also slides out to a queen and a desk for wired/wireless internet

The house has full 2 bathrooms
1) The 'master' bathroom has a shower, toilet, and skylight
2) The 'hallway' bathroom has a shower/tub and toilet

The kitchen is loaded with stainless steel appliances and fully stocked with cookware.

The house sits on a private road. No parking passes required. In addition, the house is on a cul-de-sac which leads to low traffic for a beach house. Safe for playing in the street.

House Details
The house is 1500 Sq Ft and a flat roof (which means lower than normal ceilings in the back 2 bedrooms) 7ft guests not recommended.

Check out our get-away in the mountains near Bear Valley Ski resort. Also great in the summer sitting on private lake in Arnold. www.vrbo.com/474196
