My wife, our dog and I like having you and your friends & family enjoy this clean & comfortable Beach Bungalow. Check out the messages from others who have visited and left messages about how much fun they have had in this fun Beach house!

Judith Buck purchased this house in 1999

I had a dream about finding a wonderful home at a great surfing area and when we drove up to the Bungalow, I knew we had found it as soon as we drove up. Even though it had a Sold sign on it, we told our Realtor to keep tabs on it and 1 week later we were able to buy it in July of 1999.

Only a short half block stroll to the middle of Pleasure Points Beach and Surf areas. After playing with our assortment of surf and boogie boards at this great point break that works for all ages and skill levels, , come back and enjoy all the bubbles in the $10,000 hot tub, and relax in the shiatsu massage chair in front of the fire stove with free firewood while watching a favorite movie from the 100's available!

Surfers Paradise

Bucks Beach Bungalow was everything we were looking for. It is a great place to stay, seconds away from some of the best surf in the nation – this is the spot!
If you want to surf, or learn to surf, call ED at ClubEd.
Recommended by Buck, Ed was a fantastic surf instructor. We ended up in the water surfing for
4 days only having to walk our boards seconds to the coast.
The Begonia Festival was so much fun. We rode Buck’s bikes into Capitola and back a few times!
After a long day of surfing the amazing hot tub was just the relaxation we needed.
Fun Things We Did:
Seabright Brewery
Crows Nest patio
Naka Sushi (wonderful spot for authentic amazing sushi)
BBQ on BBB patio
Shoppers corner grocery Store – a local gem full of great produce and fresh seafood ready to grill
Club Ed Surf lessons – a friend and wonderful surf instructor
O’Neil Surf Shop – support the local heritage of O’Neil legend
The Boardwalk! So much fun!! Roller coaster, walked up the wharf and saw lounging sea lions
Can’t wait to get a Trader Joes in Austin! What a great store.
All in All the location, the info and advice given by Judith and Buck made this little getaway the perfect combination of relaxing local surf culture, a plethora of fun activities like foosball and b8iking the coast, with day trips to the Santa Cruz mountains and Monterey less than an hour away! Can’t beat it.
Made new friends we can wait to come visit again next summer.
Thanks you Bucks!
P.S. We really like checking out all the great mementos you have collected over the years in the Bungalow. It was actually quite educational as well as fun! Very much appreciate you letting us landlocked folks partake in the great surf culture this truly special place in the USA has to offer.
Santa Cruz is a special place, truly unique, vibrant and beautiful!

Looking for a great place to stay? Triple B is the place!!! Bucks Beach Bungalow has it all. It's my 4th time at Buck and Judith's cottage at Pleasure Point. And here's why we love it.. Only a block from the beach.. Sit on the new front deck each morning and enjoy coffee while hearing the ocean waves crashing and sea lions barking.. Sneak away for a romantic walk on the beach in the moonlight... Ate lots of Pleasure Point Pizza... Watched the movie The Maverick it was one of Bucks suggestions a local surfer movie... Relaxed in the killer hot tub w a cocktail....grab some fresh crabs from Stagnero Bros on the wharf and local wine for an amazing dinner....kick back to the groovy sounds of KPiG radio... And of course watch nightly outrageous sunset with the ones you love!! See you in the flip side Buck n Judith

Bucks Beach Bungalow is heaven! ***** 5 Stars

  • Submitted: Nov 22, 2013
  • Stayed: Sep 2013
Dear Buck & Judith,

What a most wonderful surprise to end up in your little piece of the world. You really have done everything to make it heaven. Our favorites include:
The Temper-pedic bed
The Hot Tub! On starry nights.
Pefect dog-feng-shui, with the back yard, front deck and doggy door
Great movies!
Great surf boards!
It turns out the person who complimented the Pearson Arrow was Frosty Hesson himself! We didn't realize it until after we watched your dvd "Chasing Mavericks" movie.
This Bungalow was so fabulous for us - we felt like we were on vacation, rather than escaping wildfires. It made work so fun - we'd work via phone or computer until the surfing was good and the sun was high, then feel like escape artists and go surf for an hour.
We can't Thank You enough for your hospitality welcoming spirit and wonderfully outfitted fun-pad. It has great everything, but especially great warmth & comfort.
We can't wait to come back and live like Buck & Judith!
Many Thanks,
Jill, Mike, Jasper and Toby.

Buck's NOT the best place for your buck

Buck's NOT the best place for your buck
  • 1 of 5
  • Submitted: Sep 19, 2013
  • Stayed: Sep 2013
We stayed here for three nights and the reason why I would not recommend staying here is, first and foremost, high price for what you will receive. It is the size of a studio and is literally overcrowded with furniture and zillions of unnecessary things. The furniture is piled up randomly, so it almost looks like it’s a storage space at times rather than a rentable studio. The first thing we noticed when we entered the apartment was an unbearably unpleasant smell of sewage, as if the whole place was a public restroom. The place is not clean as we expected it to be. We immediately found loads of dog hair in the center of the apartment, which told us that the place was not even properly vacuumed. In fact, slide your finger here and there and it will come out blackened with dust. The place is also filled stickers that warn you what you should not do. Most importantly, before you arrive at this place, the owners make you sign a contract that has 20 or more points. One of them relates to the cleaning procedure before you leave the apartment. That point itself has more than 10 points. As a matter of fact, we ended up spending the last few hours cleaning the place, such as washing the dishes, starting a load of laundry, dividing the garbage and even taking it out on a Sunday night, all so as to avoid being additionally charged, as the contract stipulates. Note that the owners do not include the tax into the whole renting price as well as the substantial cleaning fees and some waiver too. It is strange that the cleaning fee is included while the renters are aggressively made to clean the apartment by themselves to avoid even higher fees than the cleaning fees they already pay. Last but not least, the owners were not responsive to email messages for the duration of our stay, so that our complaints were not answered. In fact, at the time of posting this review, which is already days after our stay at Buck’s, we have not received even an acknowledgment of the receipt of our inquiries, let alone an attempt to answer them. This adds up to the whole impression of the owners’ trying to literally trick people into renting this place and rip them off thereby. I feel that the owners of this place should do a more honest job than trying to find naïve victims to rent their place to under a contract that disables them from returning the key right after they open the apartment and see what kind of mess awaits them inside.
Owner's Response: We, the owners of Bucks Beach Bungalow do not know who this person is or when they stayed, but we do think it odd that if they were so unhappy with the home, that they said they sent an email to complain about it. If someone is staying for few days, why would they not phone to get results that could be handled when they were there. We have had two of our best housekeepers cleaning this home for the last 3-months. They have always done an excellent job and we feel this person just wants to blackmail us to get a refund and we refuse to do this. Please look at all the excellent reviews we have on Homeaway and VRBO and we look forward to talking with you about having a wonderful stay and a great little bungalow in the Pleasure Point area. Call us at Tollfree 1-866-476-0170. Thanks Judith & Buck

Monterey Bay with world famous aquarium. Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk with Amusement Park and historic Wharf with Restaurants and shopping. 26 miles of sandy beaches, home located next to world-class surfing breaks like Pleasure Point, Cowells & Steamer Lane. Roaring Camp Railroad is a steam-locomotive ride from the Beach to the Redwoods and back. Wine tasting from over 60 unique wineries and nearby tasting rooms.. World-class Birding at Elk Horn Slough from convenient rental kayaks or local captained cruise boats. Sailing, whale watching, salmon fishing, or buying the fish directly from the fishermen at the Harbor. Tide-pooling is great in the winter or at the Natural Bridges State Park with the rangers giving tours and campfire talks. Many beaches have free fire rings for your own bonfires and marshmallow roasting. Festivals, art shows, music, triathlons, fun runs: like the Wharf to Wharf which has a different musical group every few steps! Hundreds of different restaurants of all nationalities and for all pocketbooks and much more
