**SPECTACULAR OCEAN VIEWS** Relax and rejuvenate in our beautiful upscale Mediterranean home. The Great Room is expansive and light filled featuring panoramic ocean views of Monterey Bay, an Italian fireplace, and comfortable furniture. RELAX and DE-STRESS to the sound of waves and smell of ocean breezes from the comfort of your living room, SUNBATHE on the deck, or grab your surf board and hop across the street to SURF the famous waves of 'The Hook' at Pleasure Point. After a day at the beach, walk a few steps home, take a warm rinse in the outdoor shower and a long soak in YOUR PRIVATE JACUZZI surrounded by bougainvillea.

Prepare dinner in your gourmet kitchen while watching the waves and the surfers. Step outside to the garden for some fresh organic lettuce for your evening salad and fire up the grill on the deck next to the kitchen. If your not in the mood to cook, stroll around the block for a choice of sushi, chinese, mexican, or a slice of that famous Pleasure Point Pizza.

Or work up a real appetite with a walk to quaint Capitola by the Sea (10 min.) for an array of appetizing restaurants. (you can walk there on the beach at low tide) Speaking of low tide, we have incredible minus tides which afford hours of exploring in tide pools, searching for star fish and sea anenomes. The kids love this!

End your day relaxing on the deck, listening to the pounding surf while watching the sunset followed by the moon rise. Awake the following morning to an incredible sunrise and a cup of steaming coffee or tea and get ready for another exquisite day in paradise.

Beautiful sunrises and moonrises over the ocean can be had from the comfort of YOUR LUXURIOUS CALIFORNIA KING BED in the master suite. The master bath features double sink, double shower, and large soaking tub. Other 3 guest rooms feature queen size beds.

About Michael Dini

Matt and Michael Dini We love sailing, golf, travel, and good friends.

Michael Dini purchased this House in 1992

Why Michael Dini chose Santa Cruz

We wanted to enjoy an easy, relaxed lifestyle so we built a sunny and spacious beach house. We love to play on the beach year round, whether it is sunbathing and boogie boarding or bundled up for long walks and tide pool exploring. The neighborhood is friendly and we can walk or bike to many restaurants and the grocery store. We feel like everyday is a vacation!

What makes this House unique

Pleasure Point is an International Surf destination. While you are here, you can surf right out your front door, then enjoy a warm outdoor shower and a hot tub. In July the famous wharf to wharf race goes right by the house. You can stay above the crowd and enjoy the band and street party from the deck or pop outside into the party. On the fourth of July you can view the fireworks from the deck. But usually it's pretty quite around here, easy to unwind and just be grateful for a beautiful life.

                                                              We booked last minute and the owners couldn't be nicer!!! This home is awesome and had a great feel too it. Will definitely be coming back to stay if they'll have us!!!

                                                              Gorgeous ocean views

                                                              Home has incredible views from open concept upper living area, dining room, and kitchen and from the wraparound deck. Light and bright and airy. Across the street are major surf spots. Close to 41st shops & eateries & cute village of Capitola. 4 bedrooms easily sleep 8 people in beds & then blow-up mattress gets you to 10. Two large comfy sofas, and a number of oversized chairs, and large table that extends to 10 means you have plenty of room for all to relax.

                                                              After worrying we were slightly outside Santa Cruz, we realised quickly we had the best of both worlds with this location. Close enough to walk to Capitola and enjoy the restaurants and beach, whilst within easy driving distance of the Boardwalk. Local beaches directly across from the house were empty even in high season and the atmosphere with the surfers and skateboarders everywhere made for a unique experience. The house itself was perfect with a great hot tub and we too got a rose from the lovely neighbour across the road!

                                                              Luxury by the Beach

                                                              Great place to stay in Santa Cruz. The house is beautiful and well maintained. There's great separation of space, with the master suite on the top floor along with the kitchen and a welcoming lounge/family area. The other bedrooms are on the first floor. It was perfect for our group, consisting of two families with kids. The ocean views are spectacular. The hosts are great, and very attentive to questions. The neighbors are so friendly - one neighbor actually brought us roses from his garden! Most definitely would come again! Thanks.

                                                              Excellent beach getaway!

                                                              This home was everything we had hoped for and more. The house is well cared for, well equipped and the perfect location. My entire family enjoyed the comfortable atmosphere, the beautiful ocean views and lovely landscaping. We walked to Capitola for beach fun, shopping and dining out. I would recommend this home to anyone looking for a relaxing beach retreat. We even enjoyed the evening fog! Happy!

                                                              Excellent property, great location, highly reccomend!

                                                              This is truly a fantastic property - well placed, minutes from the beach and a short walk into Capitola.

                                                              The house itself is large and spacious with everything one might need.

                                                              The owners were great - available should we have needed anything!

                                                              Loved our trip to Santa Cruz - couldn't have asked for more from the VRBO.

                                                              Highly recommend and would definitely stay again!
