About the Property

2 bdr Santa Cruz Beach Cottage, off-street parking, fenced yard, dog ok.

Located on Pleasure Point, this small attached two bedroom beach cottage, is located along Highway 1 of Monterey Bay, close to many of the famed destinations the Northern California coast has to offer : Quaint beach towns including Santa Cruz, Capitola, Soquel, Moss Landing, Monterey and Carmel; a host of Mountain Wineries; and, a wealth of outdoor activities.

It’s a very short walking distance from the front door of Pleasure Point Cottage to one of the finest surfing spots on the West coast! The scenery is breath taking. The relaxed cottage style interior is ideal for a small family retreat, a couple’s getaway, surfing enthusiasts or snowbirds looking for a wonderful getaway with a mild climate.

The kitchen of this two bedroom cottage is equipped with all of the basic appliances, including a gas stove, dishwasher and microwave, electric coffee pot, dishes and cookware.

The master bedroom has a queen size bed, fresh linens, and desk with access to Wi-Fi, a TV, open beam ceiling and walk-in closet.

The second bedroom has two extra-long, twin size beds that are comfortable for adults as well as children. Toys, high chair, and portable crib are available on request. Sleeping pads with extra bedding are available too, in case of need.

All of the utilities, cable TV, Wi-Fi, laundry, gardener, barbeque and picnic table are provided. We even have storage space for your bike and/or surf board. This attached cottage has off-street parking on a stamped concrete driveway, and its own private, fenced yard. Yes, your dog is welcome too. He/she will appreciate the fenced yard, walks throughout the dog friendly neighborhood, and the trails around the local estuary and Light House Field.

The storage room, laundry room, waste management and parking areas are shared with two other cottages.

Begin your day by strolling along Opal Cliffs. Watch surfers challenge the waves; listen to the pounding surf while the sea gulls call from overhead; inhale the fresh ocean air while you sip a cup of hot coffee at the corner deli and consider your options. Northern California coastal communities are vibrant with activities and opportunities to explore. All are easily discoverable near this Pleasure Point getaway.

Car: Recommended

Pleasure Point Cottage is two blocks from the ocean, two miles from the Santa Cruz Beach Board Walk, and less than twenty minutes from the UCSC campus, and the redwood forests of the Santa Cruz Mountains.

It is a short day trip to San Francisco, the Monterey Bay Aquarium, or the beautiful 'Seventeen Mile Drive' along the coast between Carmel and Monterey.

If you're not into surfing, kayaking in the Santa Cruz boat harbor or the estuaries of Moss Landing, seal, otter and bird watching, going for a bike ride, or deep sea fishing are other possibilities for adventure.

Santa Cruz County has 29 miles of beaches to explore: Cowell's Beach, Steamer Lane, (a favorite surfing spot), Twin Beach, and Castle Beach, are all near the Santa Cruz Wharf.

Driving south from Pleasure Point Cottage, you will find Manresa Beach, La Selva, Capitola Beach, Seacliff Beach (sunken cement ship), Seascape Beach, and Sunset Beach (romance ).

Driving North look for the Santa Cruz Harbor (great place for breakfast, lunch or dinner and evening entertainment); 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 Dune 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!

The county is also blessed with 14 state parks, including the popular Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park, accessible by steam train from the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. This is a trip through the towering redwoods and back. If you want more adventure: Hike, ride a zip line or bike through the beautiful redwood forests of the Santa Cruz mountains.

The opportunities for fun in Santa Cruz are endless!

If you still want more adventure, visit the Monterey Bay Aquarium or play a round of golf. Drive up the coast to San Francisco, and walk across the Golden Gate Bridge. You'll never forget it!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1979

About the owner: After teaching for thirty-four years and maintaining cars, airplanes and properties for even longers, we have become 'snow birds'. Creating 'home' along the west coast has been a life long passion; and, we enjoy sharing our talents and creations with others.

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

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Where else in the world can we comfortably stroll so many beaches, walk the dog in the Light House Field or along the marsh, ride horsback through the nearby redwood forests,or go kyaking in Elk Horn Slough? One of our continuing favorites is to watch the otters, birds, and sea lions play in the estuary while enjoying a fine dinner at the Fish Factory in Moss Landing.
