About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 1 Half Baths, Sleeps 8

This lovely two-story Santa Cruz vacation rental has everything to make your vacation a winning one. Enjoy the ocean breezes from two decks. Your worries will be just a memory in no time.

Just two miles from lovely Capitola and four miles from Santa Cruz proper, this home is just minutes from the beach and your chance to surf!

This chic three-bedroom, dog-friendly home has a reverse floor plan with the bedrooms on ground level and the living room on the second floor. It may feel odd to some, but it works after a long day of sightseeing around town.

The great room is large and inviting with a plush couch and chair to sooth tired muscles. Start a cozy fire and enjoy the warmth on a cool winter's night. A sliding glass door leads to a outdoor deck perfect for entertaining or savoring a glass of wine after dinner. The cable TV and free WiFi guarantee fun movie nights or simple evenings listening to music.

Speaking of dinner, you'll be crafting a pleasing repast in no time at the gourmet kitchen! A granite-topped island, two-seat breakfast bar, and stainless steel appliances dominate the space but you'll have no problem entertaining in the eight-seat formal dining room. Prep for dinner at the gorgeous half bath just down the hall.

Each of the bedrooms affords guests a wealth of space and light. The master features a king bed and a large walk-in closet as well as a door to the outdoors. An attached bathroom has dual vanities and a stand-alone shower and tub that are a sight to behold. A second bedroom boasts a queen bed and rustic furniture, while a third bedroom offers a full bunk bed. There's also a second full bath with a stand-alone shower just down the hall. Retreat to the second-floor sitting room, to the comfy red couch and a flatscreen TV. You'll also have access to a second deck with a gas grill and dinette set.

A washer and dryer, a ping-pong table, and bikes are on hand for your enjoyment. Up to two dogs are welcome as well,though a nightly fee per dog and minimum fee per stay will apply.

Santa Cruz is known for its beautiful scenery and as a rock-climbing and surfing mecca. Head to the water to test your skills on a board or take a hike around Wilder Ranch State Park. You'll feel invigorated and recharged in no time.

Play in the ocean or just laze the days away on one of the beautiful decks. It's all just steps away at this lovely Central California Coast vacation rental.

About Vacasa, CA - Central California Coast Office

Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers.



Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife’s family’s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website—could be handled by a specialized central support team.



Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home—our team is standing by!

Great Home

  • 5 of 5

The home we rented in Santa Cruz from Vacasa was perfect for our group of eight and the location gave us easy access to the beach.

Great place to stay

  • 4 of 5

Some things may not work but you can call the number and they could possibly fix it for you- we didn’t bother but otherwise the place is comfy and the beds are nice!

Great location, nice house.

  • 5 of 5

It was nice having the living area on the second floor, with three bedrooms below. Would be a bit of a squeeze for eight, but fine for the six of us. As others have noted, plumbing is somewhat noisy. Kinda weird. But, the front deck is unbeatable for an early cup of coffee as the sun rises. Would rent again...

Vacation home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This home was excellent. So close to everything you want or need, the beach, cafe's, restaurants, grocery stores and is super pet friendly. Very clean and fresh and very spacious. We enjoyed our stay so much and can't wait to go back.

Paradise Indeed

  • 5 of 5

Pleasure Point Paradise was paradise indeed! The pictures do not do this place justice! It was lovely. I rented it out for myself and my bridal party to have a place to get ready before my wedding! The bathrooms have large mirrors and plenty of outlets, super helpful for getting ready - it slept the 8 of us very comfortably! We very much enjoyed our brief time there! Easy walk to the beach, but a beautiful view of it from the balcony if you don't have time to make it there!
