Natural Bridges State Beach, in Santa Cruz is known for its tide-pooling and famous natural rock bridge. It feels secluded but is easily accessible from the road. From October through February, this state park is a Monarch Butterfly sanctuary for as many as 100,000 butterflies that are drawn to the mild ocean air and eucalyptus grove.
The Seymour Marine Discovery Center, a part of the Joseph M. Long Marine Laboratory, a research and education facility of UCSC is about 3.5 miles from the cottage. Or drive south (about 45 minutes) to the Monterey Bay Aquarium. It’s well worth your time.
Visit up to forty-five different Santa Cruz wineries. Winemaker Wednesdays at Shadow Brook Restaurant features 2 to 4 wines from local wineries in a spectacular river front setting. Barrel Tasting & Wine Dinner is held at Bonny Doon Vineyard every Thursday where you can glimpse into the winery & cellar. Barrel tasting is followed by a hosted three-course family-style dinner paired with wines of Bonny Doon Vineyard
Santa Cruz County is blessed with 14 state parks, including the popular Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park, accessible by steam train from the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. The train will carry you to and through the towering redwoods and back. Check the schedule before you go, as the trains only run on weekends in the fall. Hiking and/or biking through Big Basin Redwood Forest is a lifetime memory. Henry Cowell Redwood Forest and State Park is home to a centuries old Redwood Grove that features a self-guided nature path. The park has a picnic area above the San Lorenzo River. Anglers fish for steelhead and salmon during the winter (catch and release).
If you're ready for more adventure, rent a kayak and check out the sea life in the local harbor and/or estuaries at Moss Landing.
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 of our favorite places to enjoy breakfast or toast the sunset.
The Shadow Brook Restaurant in nearby Capitola is a wonderful place for a special dining experience. 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 to enjoy live guitar music and happy hour.

Year Purchased: 1979
About the owner: After teaching for thirty-four years and maintaining cars, airplanes and properties for even longer, being parents and grandparents, we have become 'snowbirds'. 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, and we take delight in creating an affordable vacation option for others.
Why the Owner Chose Opal Cliffs, CA, USA:
We love the ambience, especially the fresh ocean air, the mild climate 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 either San Francisco peninsula or Carmel-by-the-Sea 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 at sun set, while enjoying a fine fish dinner at Moss Landing.
