A surfer or surf-watcher’s paradise! Surf all day, explore, or relax at our Pleasure Point Home. Across the street from pleasure point, you can wake and check the surf from your deck in the morning over coffee. Not a surfer? A sand beach is within easy walking distance from the house or you can explore the diverse offerings of our region. Spend your day surfing, exploring, or at the beach, come home to a warm outdoor shower, cook dinner in our gourmet kitchen, and relax with ocean breezes and sounds. Located along sunny East Cliff Drive in Santa Cruz, California, you are situated to explore a dynamic coastline. Santa Cruz is located only a short drive from San Francisco, Monterey, Carmel, and the Silicon Valley.

Suitable for a large group or two families, our home offers flexibility, privacy, and convenience. The 2500 square foot home can accommodate up to twelve people in three bedrooms and two and a half baths spread over two floors. The upstairs houses a gourmet kitchen, dining and living area in one great room, as well as a large master bedroom suite and one and a half baths. Three decks offer water, neighborhood, and garden views (A floor plan is available by request).

The dining/living room area has vaulted ceilings, a gas fireplace, and a private deck overlooking the landscaped garden. The dining area can seat ten to twelve people.

This house is really pretty great. It's huge, but with a somewhat funky configuration. There are three bedrooms and each bedrooms has a queen and a twin.'s best to 12 individual people or 12 really good friends, but not best for 4+ couples, like we had. It all worked out, with some people on air mattresses, so I really have no complaints about that. Beds could go for a comfy top layer, but again, that's nitpicking. The kitchen is probably the best stocked kitchen I've ever come across, but I highly suggest they get a new set of knives (or you bring your own). Other than that, the kitchen has everything you could ever need. The location cannot be beat, being a stone's throw from pleasure point. The little beach cafe/convenience store right next door is also really nice. The decks are awesome (and by far my favorite place of the house) and the grill worked splendidly for all our dinners. Speaking of dinner, they have a small table in one area of the living room and then a 6 person dining table, so if you're looking for twelve people to fit around one table, you won't get it here unless you push tables together and even then it might not work. For our group, it was just fine, with some people eating outside and some inside. If you're looking for a large house with a lot of space right smack on pleasure point, then this is the place for you. Not super luxurious, but it has everything you need for a great stay (but for reals, new knives are a must). A group of us also walked to the small beach about five minutes away, which was lovely.

Spacious, clean, perfect location beach house.

The beach house was 1 minute walk to the beach, making it very convient. The neighborhood and neighbors are very welcoming. The house was very spacious and spacious back yard. Would highly recommend this property. Owner replies quickly, and is very helpful with the process.

Great House, Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We bring a group down every year, this was by far the best experience we had. The house was perfect for a large group of adults and a few kids. Close to the beach, close to Capitola, close to the Boardwalk.

The neighborhood has a great locals feel, and the house feels like a home, not a rental.

We definitely plan to stay here again next year.

Great spot

  • 5 of 5

I joined a few friends in staying at this fantastic house. It is located right next to the water at the famous surfing spot of Pleasure Point. The house was well maintained and comfortable, and after a left the power cord to my computer at the house, the owner/manager kindly responded to my inquiry and had it shipped at no cost. Highly recommended!

perfect house for big family

  • 5 of 5

my family and I just spent fourth of july week here, it was the perfect house for a large family. We did not feel crowded at all and plenty of beds to sleep in. Also there was a playpen for the the baby the sleep and a gate to keep her from the stairs..big thanks! We could see the beach from the front balcony and walk there to see the surfers and if you walk the other direction the beach is only 5min. away. The house overall was very clean and had everything we needed for cooking and grilling. There was extra linens in closets and towels but we brought extra beach towels anyways. My kids loved the store next door and if you go, order the chicken pesto sandwhich...YUM!! The only thing I would recommend is bring extra toilet paper. It was wonderful house and would definately stay there again.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Stayed at the house for a week over the 4th of July. Great location, plenty of room. Enjoyed the balconies and all the people watching. Lots of activity around the neighborhood on the 4th! The store/deli next store was so convenient and the food is very good; they even had live music several times during our stay. The house worked very well for our group of 10 adults. Nice vacation home for a reasonable price. Would love to stay again.
