Property description

Located on Pleasure Point, this small attached one bedroom beach cottage, is located close to many of the famed destinations the Northern California coast has to offer along Highway 1 of Monterey Bay: 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 snow bird’s retreat or surfing enthusiasts alike, a wine tasters’ refuge or a couple’s getaway.

Pleasure Point Cottage has its own kitchen with all of the dishes, pots and pans you will need, as well as a coffee pot, microwave, full range, and a side by side refrigerator and a kitchen table with seating for three.

The living room has a white leather sectional sofa, plus desk with internet and cable TV.

The bathroom has a walk-in shower and fresh, clean towels and a hair dryer.

The bedroom has a queen size bed with a new Simons Beauty Rest mattress. The bed is ready with clean linens. Extra bedding is available to create a second sleeping area in the living room if needed.

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

The cottage is less than two blocks from one of the finest surfing spots on the west coast. It's half way between Carmel By the Sea and San Francisco, on Monterey Bay, close to Old Capitola.

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!

If you want more adventure: Hike, ride a zip line or train through the beautiful redwood forests of the Santa Cruz mountains. Visit the UCSC Campus, 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 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.
