About Roger Bloom

Roger & Steve grew up together in Southern California and missed the beaches and surfing. Thirty years later they found a bit of paradise for our families to enjoy in Pleasure Point which is the banana belt of the Santa Cruz area. We all fell in love with Pleasure Point as it is less than an hour drive from our homes. We love to surf and enjoy the nearby walking path to Capitola and the fun local restaurants.

Roger Bloom purchased this house in 2011

Why Roger Bloom chose Central Coast

We chose to buy this home because it is everything we wanted and less than an hour's drive from Silicon Valley.

When we walk in the door we feel as though we are miles away.

We wanted a home that has easy walking access to beaches, shops and restaurants.

There is so much to do in this beautiful area including: the amusement park, Capitola Village, UC Santa Cruz, Santa Cruz wineries, Elkhorn Slough for kyaking with sea otters, the Monterey Bay Aquarium, the Annie Glass outlet, bike riding, fishing, birding, Pacific Grove Mall, whale watching, ...

What makes this house unique

I do not like to drive and prefer to walk to shops, restaurants. I like the 30 minute stroll along the coast to Capitola for lunch at my favorite Paradise Beach cafe. We can surf or read on the sunny deck. Bonfires in the sand only a half block away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Steve... I can't tell you enough how much we enjoyed your house... Everything was wonderful and it seemed like there wasn't anything you didn't have ...cooking utensils, pots and pans, wine glasses, coffee pots and every condiment you could want for cooking... The downstairs suite was such a delight.. My son and his wife stayed there and I really didn't think they were going to leave.. We all hung out downstairs on your beautiful patio because of the 'heatwave'... It was quite warm upstairs but it cooled off at night and the mornings were beautiful... We couldn't believe the one weekend we come to Santa Cruz there is a 'heatwave'!!!

We took long walks along the ocean and watched the surfers... We ate at a great Italian restaurant and the market was just down the street for anything we wanted...

Our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer... It was such a beautiful home in a beautiful area...

Thank you again for being so nice and making the booking process so easy...I will definitely recommend your home to our friends and I guarantee you we will be back!!!

Sincerely

Donna Osborne

Beautiful and well-appointed

  • 5 of 5

This house was a great find; we were looking for somewhere for our family to stay for our son's graduation from UCSC. This house had everything we needed including a bbq, bikes, pack and play and high chair for our grand baby.

Nice and clean and the downstairs master suite was perfect for our daughter, son in law and grand baby.

Great House!

  • 5 of 5

The house was spacious and held the 6 of us very comfortably. The neighborhood was quiet and a good spot for a family vacation the beach was right down the street. Would stay there again, and the owner was very helpful by suggesting spots to see and food locations.

Amazing beach getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This house is absolutely immaculate! We were so pleased upon our arrival to find everything was even better in person than it looked online. The house is so well stocked with everything you could possibly need for a beach getaway including beach chairs, beach cruisers, wagon, toys, and games! The rooms were all decorated and furnished very nicely and the whole house gives off a very relaxed and peaceful vibe. Everyone had plenty of space and privacy too. We really loved eating meals outdoors on the upstairs deck and using the hot tub at night once it stared to cool off outside. The location was just perfect being so close to the beach and Pleasure Point! There was truly nothing we would have changed about this house! To top it off, Roger was so easy to communicate with and always prompt getting back to us. I would recommend this house to anyone looking for a great beach getaway! Hope to book another trip here soon!

The Perfect Beach House!

  • 5 of 5

This house is beautiful inside - nicely decorated, full of light, and great for relaxing. The views are incredible too, both from the windows and from the deck. The location is unmatched - Steps to the beach and a short walk to Pleasure Point. I love this house and can't wait to go back!!!
