Property description

**SPECTACULAR OCEAN VIEWS** Relax and rejuvenate in our beautiful upscale Mediterranean home. The Great Room is expansive and light filled featuring panoramic ocean views of Monterey Bay, an Italian fireplace, and comfortable furniture. RELAX and DE-STRESS to the sound of waves and smell of ocean breezes from the comfort of your living room, SUNBATHE on the deck, or grab your surf board and hop across the street to SURF the famous waves of 'The Hook' at Pleasure Point. After a day at the beach, walk a few steps home, take a warm rinse in the outdoor shower and a long soak in YOUR PRIVATE JACUZZI surrounded by bougainvillea.

Prepare dinner in your gourmet kitchen while watching the waves and the surfers. Step outside to the garden for some fresh organic lettuce for your evening salad and fire up the grill on the deck next to the kitchen. If your not in the mood to cook, stroll around the block for a choice of sushi, chinese, mexican, or a slice of that famous Pleasure Point Pizza.

Or work up a real appetite with a walk to quaint Capitola by the Sea (10 min.) for an array of appetizing restaurants. (you can walk there on the beach at low tide) Speaking of low tide, we have incredible minus tides which afford hours of exploring in tide pools, searching for star fish and sea anenomes. The kids love this!

End your day relaxing on the deck, listening to the pounding surf while watching the sunset followed by the moon rise. Awake the following morning to an incredible sunrise and a cup of steaming coffee or tea and get ready for another exquisite day in paradise.

Beautiful sunrises and moonrises over the ocean can be had from the comfort of YOUR LUXURIOUS CALIFORNIA KING BED in the master suite. The master bath features double sink, double shower, and large soaking tub. Other 3 guest rooms feature queen size beds.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1992

About the owner: Matt and Michael Dini We love sailing, golf, world travels, and good friends.

Why the Owner Chose Santa Cruz:
We wanted to enjoy an easy, relaxed lifestyle so we built a sunny and spacious beach house. We love to play on the beach year round, whether it is sunbathing and boogie boarding or bundled up for long walks and tide pool exploring. The neighborhood is friendly and we can walk or bike to many restaurants and the grocery store. We feel like everyday is a vacation!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Pleasure Point is an International Surf destination. While you are here, you can surf right out your front door, then enjoy a warm outdoor shower and a hot tub. In July the famous wharf to wharf race goes right by the house. You can stay above the crowd and enjoy the band and street party from the deck or pop outside into the party. On the fourth of July you can view the fireworks from the deck. But usually it's pretty quite around here, easy to unwind and just be grateful for a beautiful life.
