Santa Cruz bungalow description

Romantic Retreat: This fantastically located, atmospheric guest house was custom designed by the owner. This intimate home is ideal for two and perhaps a well behaved canine! Take a hop and a skip down the street to the cliffs of Pleasure Point, where you can view the surfers down below while you walk . After your stroll, you can rinse off in the outdoor shower before you soak in the bubbling cedarwood hot tub. Enjoy the privacy, the curling leaves of the pepper tree, and the lovely music of the wind chimes. Swing in a hammock as you cool off. There is a small hot tub deck and a larger side deck ideal for lunch in the sunshine.

The bungalow boasts Spanish tile floors, a romantic sleeping loft with sky lights, a custom built desk and bookshelf, atmospheric lighting on dimmers, many books of poetry and about spirituality. The feeling of the house is peaceful and the neighborhood quiet. We have several DVDs, many of them romantic comedies.

You can walk to nearby 41st Ave. to great cafes and restaurants, or walk or drive to picturesque Capitola Village for unique stores and boutiques.

The house and location are great for people wanting a peaceful atmosphere. Great feeling house for reading, meditating, writing and contemplation. The deck has sun all year round when it is sunny out. It is wonderful to walk out the door and be able to walk along the beach during minus tide times, or to walk a little further to beaches nearby. It is an easy walk to picturesque Capitola Village for those who like to walk, and Santa Cruz has great hiking trails as well as awesome beaches.

                      Year Purchased: 1996

                      About the owner: My husband and I are retired psychotherapists and I am a yoga teacher. We built our guest house for us and our doggies to live in when we aren't traveling in our van. We love nature, hiking and our doggies. We are also interested in spirituality and meditation. Our home is very conducive to meditation. Our gardens are beautiful, and we love our cedar hot tub and our deck that gets sun all day long. Our little loft is cozy and romantic and we can hear the ocean. We also love that we can walk to the beach, and to restaurants and cafes.

                      Why the Owner Chose Santa Cruz:
                      We love Santa Cruz, the ocean and beaches, the small town feel and the friendliness! We also love the health oriented restaurants, the accessibility of great hiking and yoga classes.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
                      15 Minute drive to Downtown Santa Cruz, 10 minute drive to the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. A fifteen minute drive to Nicene Marks State Park for wonderful hiking.
