About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths

3 BR/2.5BA spacious remodeled home in Pleasure Point, 3 minute walk to the beach and just a quick bike ride to Capitola Village, The Yacht Harbor, and The Boardwalk (cruiser bikes included!). Our home is located 2 blocks away from the ocean with pet friendly beach access and world class surfing at the end of our street.

Our home features hardwood floors throughout, updated appliances, and a real wood fireplace. The house sits on a large lot with an enclosed sunny front yard where you can sit and drink your morning coffee on our front porch. The luscious and spacious private back yard includes a large deck, gazebo with a fire table, 3 person private hot tub, brand new large outdoor kitchen/BBQ, outdoor shower, vegetable garden, and fruit trees. Indoors you’ll find wireless internet access and flatscreen HD TVs throughout, as well as gaming consoles (Xbox 360 and Playstation 3) and games for the kids and/or adults. Our fully stocked gourmet kitchen with 6 burner stove and all new stainless appliances makes for creating a fantastic after beach meal. You can also find fresh farmer’s market vegetables down the street on Sunday mornings. Master Bedroom has a king size bed with over-sized bathtub including a double headed shower. Bedroom #2 has a queen size bed with full bath (shower). Den has queen size bed and a half bath right outside its door.

Our beach house also includes 3 beach cruisers and an assortment of beach toys (surfboards, boogie boards, beach chairs, coolers, etc) to make your stay at the beach as enjoyable as possible.

** Please note that our neighbors for the most part are all permanent residents, and although they are extremely friendly and nice, if you are looking for a beach party house, this is probably is not the house for your vacation. However, if you are looking for a relaxing vacation at the beach with all the comforts of home, this is the right place for you.

About Paul Anastasopoulos

We have been living in Santa Cruz for the over 30 years. As an educator I enjoy having the summer's free to travel and visit other countries and cultures. Luckily my husband's job is flexible enough to allow us to travel which allows us to open up our home for your vacation. We hope you enjoy it here as much as we do!

Great beach house

  • 5 of 5

Just a short walk to pleasure point and the shops/restaurants on 41st, this vacation rental clearly has location going for it. In addition, it's a sweet little set up that worked great for our family of 5. Each of the kids has their own space, my son choosing to sleep in the office addition in the backyard. Kitchen was very well equipped and we even grilled out on the posh outdoor BBQ one night. Highly recommmend!

Perfect family getaway

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable home (actually three bedrooms). Although we had five people, the house could have slept 8-10. Walk or bike to the beach, several good bars and restaurants and a great little coffee shop Cat & Cloud just two blocks away. Walking Cliff Drive towards Santa Cruz or heading south towards Capitola both make for great scenic strolls.

Awesome backyard for furry family members, off street parking and very nicely appointed kitchen for holiday cooking. If you have kids who are gamers, lots of options for video games. Bed in the master bedroom was extremely comfortable. Only downside was no laundry and no cable for holiday football games. Thx for the hospitality and quick refund of our deposit. Easy folks to work with.

Great surf, great food, great location, great owners

  • 5 of 5

This property was as perfect as advertised. Our group enjoyed every bit of our stay. We walked to waves with the boards provided, rode down to Capitola on the bikes provided and relaxed in the shade and the hot tub provided. And our retriever Hank loved all the balls & toys provided.

For those who enjoy cooking, you won't find a better location. We hosted a couple of fish fries after a fortunate day on the water with Monterey Bay Charters and our location was the awe of the group. The kitchen and grill were well maintained, efficient and easy to clean.

Even after I ran into a snag with a pesky towel rack, Paul couldn't have been more understanding or accommodating.

For all those responsible and respectful, with kids or a group of friends, you won't find a better location. We can't wait to visit again.

Great location. We walked to coffee, breakfast, dinner and even Capitola. Their are incredible seascape views within a couple blocks. Paul was very responsive and the house was equipped with everything you need.

We will be back!

Perfect Family Beach Retreat

  • 5 of 5

What a find! This beach cottage has everything a family with young kids (and well-behaved pup) needs for an ideal getaway on the coast. Plenty of space, proximity to an awesome beach and Capitola, a few minutes drive to the Boardwalk but far enough away from the chaos, tons of games, hot tub, great back yard and more. We'll definitely be back. Thank you!

great layout, beautiful backyard and just a 5 minute walk to the ocean

  • 4 of 5

This is a great house! We stayed with friends for 3 nights and loved the layout of the house and yard. Lots of room and very private on a nice quiet street. The house has 2 living room areas and a bright, cheery kitchen so we never felt on top of one another. The front porch faces East so we had our coffees outside in the morning and then lounged in the sunny backyard for the daytime/evening. We took advantage of every amenity I think! We rode the bikes, sat in the hot tub, BBQ'd a great dinner on the new outdoor facility and sat by the fire pit at night. The owners were very quick to respond to any questions we had before and during our stay too. All in all it was a perfect time, I just wish we could have stayed longer!
