Property description

This charming beach bungalow represents the classic Pleasure Point beach accommodation. It has been recently remodeled, including: exterior and interior paint, new roof, new hardwood floor, new light fixtures and window treatments, new bedroom carpeting, and patio landscaping.
Located less than 2 blocks from the beach, it is a short walk to the 38th Avenue stairs or a stroll down East Cliff Drive.
The property is also located just 2 blocks from the quaint 41st Avenue downtown area, making it easy to access local coffee shops, restaurants, surf shops, and other local businesses, just a short walk away.
The kitchen in the bungalow is fully stocked, and also plenty of beach amenities are provided including surfboards, paddle board, boogie boards, beach chairs & towels, beach cruisers, etc.

Car: Not Necessary

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!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Opal Cliffs, CA, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
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.
