Santa Cruz house description
A surfer or surf-watcher’s paradise! Surf all day, explore, or relax at our Pleasure Point Home. Across the street from pleasure point, you can wake and check the surf from your deck in the morning over coffee. Not a surfer? A sand beach is within easy walking distance from the house or you can explore the diverse offerings of our region. Spend your day surfing, exploring, or at the beach, come home to a warm outdoor shower, cook dinner in our gourmet kitchen, and relax with ocean breezes and sounds. Located along sunny East Cliff Drive in Santa Cruz, California, you are situated to explore a dynamic coastline. Santa Cruz is located only a short drive from San Francisco, Monterey, Carmel, and the Silicon Valley.
Suitable for a large group or two families, our home offers flexibility, privacy, and convenience. The 2500 square foot home can accommodate up to twelve people in three bedrooms and two and a half baths spread over two floors. The upstairs houses a gourmet kitchen, dining and living area in one great room, as well as a large master bedroom suite and one and a half baths. Three decks offer water, neighborhood, and garden views (A floor plan is available by request).
The gourmet kitchen features a four-burner Thermador Professional range and grill, a Gagneau convection oven, refrigerator, dishwasher, and trash compactor. The deck off the kitchen has a gas grill and offers views of the Monterey Bay.
The dining/living room area has vaulted ceilings, a gas fireplace, and a private deck overlooking the landscaped garden. The dining area can seat ten to twelve people. The living room area has two sofas, one of which is a full sleeper sofa. Relax over dinner, or in front of the fireplace to talk, listen to music, or watch a movie.
The large master bedroom suite has two large closets, one of which is a walk-in. It can sleep four people comfortably in the California-King-size bed or the trundle bed that can convert to either 2 twins or another CA King size bed. A private bathroom is attached to the master suite with a full bath/tub.
Downstairs you will find two more bedrooms, a full bath with tub, a sitting/game area, washing room complete with washer and dryer. Each bedroom has a queen and twin bed as well as a large closet. One bedroom has sliding doors that open to the garden. The other has a window to the garden. The sitting/foyer area has two antique bamboo chairs and a coffee table. The sitting area looks out into the front of the landscaped garden. A large private fenced and landscaped garden features sunny outdoor seating and a second charcoal grill. A pleasant space for dining or relaxing with family and friends.
We are a few short blocks to Moran beach and accross the street from Pleasure Point.

Great House, Perfect Location
Great House, Perfect Location
We bring a group down every year, this was by far the best experience we had. The house was perfect for a large group of adults and a few kids. Close to the beach, close to Capitola, close to the Boardwalk. The neighborhood has a great locals feel, and the house feels like a home, not a rental. We definitely plan to stay here again next year.

I joined a few friends in staying at this fantastic house. It is located right next to the water at the famous surfing spot of Pleasure Point. The house was well maintained and comfortable, and after a left the power cord to my computer at the house, the owner/manager kindly responded to my inquiry and had it shipped at no cost. Highly recommended!

perfect house for big family
perfect house for big family
my family and I just spent fourth of july week here, it was the perfect house for a large family. We did not feel crowded at all and plenty of beds to sleep in. Also there was a playpen for the the baby the sleep and a gate to keep her from the stairs..big thanks! We could see the beach from the front balcony and walk there to see the surfers and if you walk the other direction the beach is only 5min. away. The house overall was very clean and had everything we needed for cooking and grilling. There was extra linens in closets and towels but we brought extra beach towels anyways. My kids loved the store next door and if you go, order the chicken pesto sandwhich...YUM!! The only thing I would recommend is bring extra toilet paper. It was wonderful house and would definately stay there again.

Stayed at the house for a week over the 4th of July. Great location, plenty of room. Enjoyed the balconies and all the people watching. Lots of activity around the neighborhood on the 4th! The store/deli next store was so convenient and the food is very good; they even had live music several times during our stay. The house worked very well for our group of 10 adults. Nice vacation home for a reasonable price. Would love to stay again.

We used the house for a girls getaway weekend. The location is fabulous! It is just steps from Pleasure Point, where you can sit on the rocks and watch the surfers! Or, apparently, you can walk just a little farther to a sand beach (we never got around to doing that). We were greeted upon arrival by a live band playing next door at the mini-mart/coffee shop (it was the grand opening under new ownership). The house is very big, and easily accommodated the 12 of us. We were a little worried about their being only 2 showers, but it actually was not an issue. I do recommend bringing extra toilet paper, as each bathroom only had 1 roll. The house is not fancy by any means, but was very comfortable, and definitely served the purpose! The kitchen was slightly run-down, but when the owner noticed that after our stay, he reimbursed us a little, which was a nice gesture! I recommend this place to anyone who needs room for several folks!

BETWEEN FAIR AND AVERAGE
BETWEEN FAIR AND AVERAGE
THIS HOUSE HAD ALOT TO OFFER, IT IS VERY SPACIOUS.....IS IN A GOOD LOCATION AND WAS ONCE AN ELEGANT PLACE.........THERE WERE GAMES FOR KIDS, BOOKS FOR BOTH ADULTS AND KIDS. ALSO, WE APPRECIATED FINDING A PLAY PEN, WITH MATTRESS, FOR OUR 5 MONTH OLD GRANDSON. HOWEVER, IT WASN'T ALL WE'D HOPED FOR.....THE KITCHEN DRAWERS AND CABINETS WERE FILTHY........THE UTENSILS WERE CLEANED BUT THE DRAWERS HADN'T BEEN, FOR WHAT LOOKED LIKE A LONG TIME. WE SHOULDN'T HAVE TO CLEAN THESE THINGS BEFORE USING THEM. THE LINENS WERE JUST ROLLED UP AND THROWN INTO THE CABINETS (AND SOME WERE THREAD BARE)......THE DINING ROOM CHAIRS WERE SO RICKETY AND SQUEEKY, THEY FELT UNSAFE...THE YARD WAS TOTALY UNKEPT AND OVER GROWN. THE LAWN FURNITURE (IN THE YARD) WAS OLD CRUMMY AND FILTHY......

Owner response: It is disappointing to receive a bad review -- our first. While we are puzzled by the comments, we respect that there is a broad spectrum of guests, and that it is hard to be perfect for everyone. We take a long series of actions to assure that our guests have a pleasant experience. The home is professionally cleaned between visitors. We have the home professionally deep cleaned before every summer season. The garden is professionally maintained. The linens are ample, and we have many extra sets as back-up. We are either directly available to answer and address any questions that arise prior or during a visit or have a care-taker available as a backup. (In this instance, I did help the guest sort out how to use the internet, and they were satisfied.) We will do what we can to make sure your stay is a pleasant one. I regret that this guest did not have a "5" experience, as we have never received a review that was less in the past.
Lovely roomy place

I'd never rented a house before. We had a big group of adults (none of which were a couple), as we were all in town for about 5 days for a seminar. This place had a great combination of rooms and a number of beds in different sizes to accommodate everyone. Everything one could need was in the kitchen, and we took advantage of one of the two outside grills to make a great BBQ dinner that provided leftovers for two meals the next day. I actually didn't realize we'd be so close to the beach-- literally two houses away! I wish we had had more free time. There is a mini-store right next door, which we didn't need but would be very convenient if we had. In short, everything went great. Very easy.

We were group 12 people, everyone had a wonderful time at 23030 east Cliff Drive. The house is really spacious, the garden and the deck are very nice. Great location, steps to watch the surfers, minutes to a nice beach, short drive to Boardwalk. The owner is very nice and helpful. We will go back again.

This house worked out great for our family reunion! We all had so much fun in the area and being able to walk to the beach was a real plus. The owners were so helpful and kind. We would definitely return, if we ever go back to Santa Cruz for a vacation. Highly recommended!!!!
