Property description

This darling little attached cottage on Pleasure Point, in Santa Cruz provides an affordable, comfortable, very private retreat. Walk less than three blocks from our front door to the pounding surf. Your dog is welcome to come along. We have a great enclosed yard for her/him; and, the neighborhood is dog friendly.

Pleasure Point Cottage has its own kitchen, equipped with pots, pans, dishes, coffee
pot, micro wave, gas stove, refrigerator and dining area.

A comfy queen size bed is prepared with fresh linens and is ready for a good night's sleep. The bathroom, is in the center of the cottage; it has a shower; fresh towels and a hair dryer. We also have sleeping mats and extra bedding available if needed.
Utilities, Wi-Fi and cable TV, water, waste management are provided.

The cottage has its own fenced back yard with a large, private patio, barbeque and picnic table. The gardener comes by weekly to maintain the plant life. A shed in the back yard is a good spot for storing your surf board, bike or extra luggage.

East Cliff Drive, only a block and a half away, is partially blocked off for pedestrians. It’s a great place to: Walk your dog, ride your bike, or sit on the bench and watch the surfers, feel the fresh air, eat your lunch and listen to the crashing waves.

Have you ever been to a Sand Castle Building Contest? Our cottage is in prime location for the festivities. Or, perhaps you'd like to attend the Shakespeare Festival at the UC Campus. How about going to a Friday night free concert on the beach on the summer months? Whatever it may be, we will be sure to provide you with the essentials of home so you can relax and maximize your enjoyment of everything Santa Cruz has to offer!

If you have the time to venture a little further, Santa Cruz County has 29 miles of beaches to explore: Twin Beach, and Castle Beach, are all near the Santa Cruz Wharf. Driving south you will find Manresa Beach, La Selva, Capitola Beach, Seacliff Beach (sunken cement ship), Seascape Beach, and Sunset Beach (romance ). Driving North of the Santa Cruz Harbor, you will discover Light House Field State Beach ( good surfing and great place to walk dogs), Natural Bridges (observe Monarch butterflies), 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 Doon Beach and Red-white-blue (clothing is optional). Come and discover how many beaches you can find to leave your foot prints in the sand!

Visit the UCSC Campus, the Marine Lab, the Monterey Bay Aquarium, the 'Seventeen Mile Drive' between Monterey and Carmel, or play a round of golf.

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. In Capitola, the Shadow Brook Restaurant is one of our favorites. 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 with live guitar music and happy hour.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1979

About the owner: After teaching for thirty-four years and maintaining cars, airplanes and properties for even longer, we have become 'snow birds'. Creating 'home' along the west coast has been a life long passion. This Pleasure Point Cottage is one of our favorites. It's a place we enjoy coming to for sheer relaxation: The mild climate, the fresh air, the pounding surf, fine food,long leisurely walks, and beautiful scenery.

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

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Where else in the world can you, walk out your front door and down the street a couple of blocks to go surfing, comfortably stroll so many beaches, walk the dog through the Light House Field or along the marshes, go deep sea fishing or sailing, go hiking or ride horseback through the nearby redwood forests; or go kayaking in the Elk Horn Slough? A continuing favorite is to watch the otters, birds and sea lions play in the estuary while enjoying a fine fish dinner at Moss Landing as the sun sets.
