Guestbook comments from the manager
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.

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 or 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

  • 5 of 5
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!

FREQUENT SANTA CRUZ VACATION RENTERS

  • 1 of 5
We ended up leaving 2 nights early and losing out on a good chunk of money. I would have spent that amount on a luxury hotel instead of losing money and being uncomfortable had the listing been more honest.
I wish the following were disclosed in the listing:
- There is no possible way this place had been professionally cleaned in a long while. Lots of built up dirt / dust / pet dander and general grime. The whole place smelled really bad - like wet dog.
- People obviously live here - their stuff is in every single nook and cranny.
- I can't tell what has been remodeled in the last 5-10 years except for the Trex deck. That was misleading.
- This is a studio - the only inside door is to the bathroom. Definitely not a 2 bedroom as listed. With all of the excess stuff taking up space, it is ideal for 2, maybe 3 people. Definitely not 6 as listed! Was way too tight with 2 adults & 2 kids.
- Before renting I asked if we could walk to a sandy beach and was told yes. The nearby beach is great for surfing but there is not room for chairs and sandcastle building. That beach requires a car ride.
- The alley parking listed is used by other cars and we got blocked in the first day. Luckily, we were able to use the street for the remainder. The owners seem very nice but this listing is misleading.

WONDERFUL LITTLE HOME WITH GREAT HOT TUB & PETS OK

Wonderful little home with great Hot Tub & pets ok
  • 5 of 5
This lovely beach home was an absolute delight. We walked into to gleaming oak hardwood floors, a comfortable overstuffed massage chair, a laid fire in the fire stove, and all the supplies needed including teas and spices and condiments and paper products.
After trying out the Tempurpedic bed for a short nap, we took the dog down the short walk to the beach and the Monterey Bay. There was an abundance of tide pools and we enjoyed watching the surfers on the long waves

We found great restaurants within a few minutes walk and fun stores on 41st to explore!
We’ll be back soon!

GREAT BUNGALOW AND VACATION!

  • 5 of 5
We were delighted after parking in our private parking space, to walk through the charming garden with the large hot tub into the sunny Bungalow that was to be our home base for the next week.
Our daughter immediately figured out the massage chair and used it to get rid of the kinks in her back from our 6 hour drive from Lake Tahoe.
After unloading, we took the dog down the short walk to the beach and explored the wonderful tide pools, and watched the surfers carving up the waves!
Came home and BBQ a great steak dinner and built a fire in the fire stove. After dinner we enjoyed making a selection of a new movie from the 100s that were available in the TV cabinet.
The next day we explored the new Monterey Bay Sanctuary & Exploration Center at the foot of the Santa Cruz Boardwalk, and had a great lunch out on the pier.
There is so much to see and do here, we’ll have to schedule another trip soon!
Thanks again for the wonderful home and great beds! The Hubers

  • 5 of 5
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

World-class Birding at Elk Horn Slough from convenient rental kayaks or local captained cruise boats.
