Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: Roger & Steve grew up together in Southern California and missed the beaches and surfing. Thirty years later we found a bit of paradise for our families to enjoy in Pleasure Point which is the banana belt of the Santa Cruz area. We fell in love with Pleasure Point as it is only an hour drive from our home. We love to surf and I enjoy the nearby walking path to Capitola and the fun local restaurants.

Why the Owner Chose Santa Cruz:
We chose to buy this home because it is everything we wanted and less than an hour's drive from Silicon Valley. When we walk in the door we feel as though we are miles away. We wanted a home that has easy walking access to beaches, shops and restaurants. There is so much to do in this beautiful area including: the amusement park, Capitola Village, UC Santa Cruz, Santa Cruz wineries, Elkhorn Slough for kyaking with sea otters, the Monterey Bay Aquarium, the Annie Glass outlet, bike riding, fishing, birding, Pacific Grove Mall, whale watching, ...

The Unique Benefits at this House:
I do not like to drive and prefer to walk to shops, restaurants. I like the 30 minute stroll along the coast to Capitola for lunch at my favorite Paradise Beach cafe. We can surf or read on the sunny deck. Bonfires in the sand only a half block away.
