Fully Equip Home

  • 5 of 5

The home was fully equip with everything you need. The kitchen has everything, bedrooms and bathrooms were perfect. We planned on taking our dog, but he didn't come. However, the yard would be perfect. Would definitely love to come back to this home.

Relaxed and enjoyable stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved our weekend family gathering at Pleasure Point Oasis. There was plenty of space for our family to enjoy our time together, inside the house, on the deck and in the hot tub. The house is very attractive and comfortable, and has everything we needed. We also really enjoyed Pleasure Point; the house is in easy walking distance of shops, restaurants, lovely walking on East Cliff Drive, beaches, and surfing spots.

Pleasure Point Charming Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Our family totally enjoyed our stay. We were in town for a yoga intensive training that was less than a block away and were able to come home each day and cook in the kitchen. Walking to and from class took less than 5 min!

When we emailed with any questions we received very prompt responses and they were supportive of us and our stay.

The kitchen worked out really well and the house was stocked with games and puzzles so the kids had fun learning to play Scrabble!

We would definitely stay here again. It had everything we needed for a wonderful stay.

Wonderful home, great location

  • 5 of 5

We love this house! We stayed for 7 days and didn't want to leave. The home is inviting and comfortable. It is decorated nicely and I love the painted walls. The yard is awesome, private and open. Perfect for kids and dogs, as you can keep and eye on them through the kitchen window. The master bedroom is spacious; and the bed is nice and firm. We slept really well! Owner is very accommodating, provided a high chair for us at our request both times we stayed( this is our second year). The location is desirable, a short drive to ththe boardwalk and very close to capitola. It's within walking distance of coffee shop, pizza, restaurants, ice cream, clothes stores.. almost anything you need is right there, including the beach! Short walk to the cliffs and pleasure point. We enjoyed watching the surfers and also exploring the tide pools at pleasure point. Can't wait until next year!

Pleasure Point
Car: recommended

Pleasure Point offers several beaches to walk along and explore. The tide pools (easier to find @ LOW tide) are educational and interesting; each pool it's own little universe. You will find sea anemone, starfish, crab, shrimp, and several different shell covered mollusks in each tide pool. A variety of sea plants create a seascape of shapes and colors known only to this area. Stargazing is a must as well. With a lack of city light interference on a clear night you are able to almost pluck the stars from the sky. Tide-pool Gazing and Stargazing a classic combination, as noted by Steinbeck in 'The Log from the Sea of Cortez'~'It is advisable to look from the tide pool to the stars and then back to the tide pool again.'

Skim boarding is also a very Santa Cruzesque sport for the adventurous, and well... balanced. If you haven't tried it Santa Cruz totally recommends it. A simple beginner's skim board is way less of an investment than a surf board and more versatile too!

Drive just 10 minutes from Pleasure Point and you are at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. Dare to ride the Giant Dipper, the famous wooden roller coaster, or the recently updated haunted house? The Boardwalk always has some surprises in store for the whole family. Laser tag, miniature golf, tons of rides and arcade games.

The Santa Cruz Municipal Wharf is a must see for legendary Stagnaro's seafood, views of the entire bay, whale watching tours, fishing, and Marini's salt water taffy. Don't forget to say 'Hi' to the sea lions and enjoy the world class clam chowder. The Santa Cruz Harbor is also a local favorite. The Crow's Nest Restaurant has live entertainment most nights, including comedy night on Sundays.
