About Laurie Knox
We are a Menlo Park family that frequently uses the Bungalow, along with the Owner's House at the back of the property, as a beach and surf destination to enjoy with friends and family.
Laurie Knox purchased this Bungalow in 2014
Why Laurie Knox chose Santa Cruz
We purchased the property because it is perfectly situated in Pleasure Point within walking distance of both the best beaches and surf, and 41st Street downtown. Being 2 blocks up from the beach, we have a double lot size compared to most houses 1 block up, and have a nice side patio for outdoor relaxation, BBQ'ing and dining al fresco.
What makes this Bungalow unique
The Bungalow is small, but has incredible beach charm. We have enjoyed renovating the Bungalow and have made it perfect for our family's beach getaways. The neighborhood is quiet and neighbors all friendly, as you will find in the laid-back Pleasure Point area.

Lovely Stay in Pleasure Point
The house is absolutely fabulous. Laurie is an amazing host. Close to everything, beach is a short walk, kitchen well stocked. Perfect place for a family vacation!
Exactly what we wanted
I loved this place! It was Clean, had enough room for our family of 5. Great location also, neighborhood was quiet and Laurie was real helpful with any details. I would love to stay here again
Quaint cottage in the perfect location!
We specifically looked for a house close to Pleasant Point for the surf break and this cottage was ideal. It is just a quick walk to the ocean, and there are some great neighborhood restaurants within walking distance as well. Monteray Bay and Carmel are just about an hour's drive away and San Francisco about an hour and a half. The neighborhood is really quiet and safe, and the house itself is very charming with tons of amenities. Having old beach cruisers to use and beach chairs, SUP, boogie boards etc.. makes everything super easy for a beach get-a-way. It was the perfect home away from home and we will definitely stay here again if we ever make the trip out to northern CA again!
August weekend with the fam!
We were in Santa Cruz for our daughter's soccer tournament in August, and we stayed at this sweet little cottage for the weekend. It was a perfect jumping off point for getting around town, early morning surf sessions, and walking distance to 41st Street shopping and eating.
Well stocked with everything you need! Bathroom is very small, but that didn't bother us.
We'll be back!
Our family loved this cute little beach cottage. Very clean and a very well-stocked kitchen. The location in Pleasure Point is wonderful. We loved the easy walking access to both the beach and the shops and restaurants in town.
Delightful little beach cottage!
We absolutely loved staying in this delightful, cozy little beach cottage. The beds and linens were so comfy, kitchen very well stocked and so nice to have all the beach equipment. We also so enjoyed hanging out in the side patio. This was our first visit to Santa Cruz, and it is beautiful. This little cottage is in a perfect location to walk to coffee shops, restaurants, The Hook (where we watched our son surf) etc. etc. We have a wonderful time and can wait to come back to Santa Cruz and stay in this little cottage. I highly recommend to everyone to come to Santa Cruz and stay here.
Our charming Beach Bungalow is located in the heart of Santa Cruz's Pleasure Point area, just 2 blocks from the beach. This is home to the world reknowned surf area 'The Point' and 'The Hook' and some of Santa Cruz's best beaches.
The Bungalow is also conveniently located 2 blocks from the quaint downtown area of 41st Avenue, home to many local shops, restaurants, surf shops, and local stores.
It is a quiet neighborhood, and a great place to relax for the weekend or longer, stroll along East Cliff with a view of the ocean, walk along the beach, or enjoy some of Capitola and Santa Cruz's best restaurants. Dive into the ocean with your surfboard, or head up to the mountains for a hike or mountain bike ride.
Take a 10-minute drive up the coast to visit the classic Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, or a 3-mile trip up to the Santa Cruz Harbor where you can watch the boats come in and out of the channel or rent a kayak.
The Monterey Bay Aquarium is a 50-minute drive to the south, or stop in at the Kayak Connection in Moss Landing just 21 miles down Highway 1 and paddle around with the sea otters and harbor seals.
Whatever you decide to do, rest assured there is something for everyone and you will leave feeling relaxed and wanting to come back to the beach!
