Overview

Pleasure Point Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Santa Cruz Beach Cottage, 1 bdrm, furnished, off-street paking, fenced dog ok

Pleasure Point Cottage is the perfect home base for exploring the California Coastal area from Carmel-by-the-Sea to San Francisco. Our delightful one bedroom, attached cottage is about two blocks from one of the best surfing spots on the west coast! The climate is mild, the scenery is spectacular, and there is always something happening.

Pleasure Point Cottage has its own kitchen with all of the dishes, pots and pans you will need, as well as a coffee pot, microwave, full range, and a side by side refrigerator and seating for three.

The living room has a white leather sectional sofa, plus desk with internet and cable TV.

The bathroom has a walk-in shower and fresh, clean towels and a hair dryer.

The bedroom has a queen size bed with a new Simons Beauty Rest mattress. The bed is ready with clean linens. Extra bedding is available to create a second sleeping area in the living room if needed.

The cottage even has a small private fenced yard and patio with a bistro set and barbeque. All utilities, gardener, TV and Wi-Fi and off street parking are provided, as well as a storage area for surf boards and/or bikes. Well behaved dogs are welcome. He/she will appreciate the fenced yard and walks throughout the dog friendly neighborhood.

Santa Cruz has 29 miles of sand and surf and a very mild climate all year round. Driving south of Pleasure Point, you will find Manresa Beach, La Selva, Capitola Beach, Seacliff Beach (sunken cement ship), Seascape Beach, and Sunset Beach . Driving North of Pleasure Point, check out the Santa Cruz Harbor; discover Light House Field State Beach (good surfing and great place to walk dogs).

Natural Bridges State Beach, known for its tide-pooling and famous natural rock bridge, feels secluded but is easily accessible from the road. This state park is a Monarch Butterfly sanctuary for as many as 100,000 butterflies that are drawn to the mild ocean air and eucalyptus grove in the winter months.

Further north are: Wilder Ranch Beach (historic site), Davenport Beach (tiny town with a good bakery), and Four-mile Beach (known for beach parties), Scotts Creek Beach, (a favorite for beach combing ) Waddell Creek Beach, Bonny Dune Beach and the Red-White-Blue .

The county is also blessed with 14 state parks, including the popular Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park, accessible by steam train from the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. If you want more adventure: Hike, ride a bike or zip line or train through the beautiful redwood forests of the Santa Cruz mountains.

If you have a loved one that is college bound, be sure to check out the UCSC Campus.

There are plenty of places in Santa Cruz County to end the day with a glass of wine and a fresh plate of seafood. The pier at the Boardwalk is one favorite places to enjoy breakfast or toast the sunset. The Shadow Brook Restaurant in nearby Capitola would be a wonderful place for a special dining experience. Fragrant gardens and rustic creek-side location add much to the ambience, not to mention a quaint cable car that takes you down to the restaurant and lounge to enjoy live guitar music and happy hour.

About Lorraine Heng

After teaching for thirty-four years and maintaining cars, airplanes and properties for even longer, being parents and grandparents, we have become 'snowbirds'. Creating 'home' along the west coast has been a life long passion. This Pleasure Point Cottage is one of our favorites. It's a place we enjoy coming to for sheer relaxation, and we take delight in creating an affordable vacation option for others.

Lorraine Heng purchased this cottage in 1979

Why Lorraine Heng chose Pleasure Point

We love the ambience, especially the fresh ocean air, the mild climate and natural beauty of Monterey Bay with its powerful surge of ocean waves on the beach. There is a wealth of outdoor activities here, and access to either San Francisco peninsula or Carmel-by-the-Sea is easy from the Santa Cruz area.

What makes this cottage unique

Where else in the world can you, walk out your front door and down the street a couple of blocks to go surfing, comfortably stroll so many beaches, walk the dog through the Light House Field or along the marshes, go deep sea fishing or sailing, go hiking or ride horseback through the nearby redwood forests; or go kayaking in the Elk Horn Slough? A continuing favorite is to watch the otters, birds and sea lions play in the estuary at sun set, while enjoying a fine fish dinner at Moss Landing.

Very cozy!

  • 5 of 5
This is our second time at your place and we love it. I fantasize about taking it for a month time. It had enough kitchen supplies to make lots of food. I like to cook up a storm when on holiday. The front grassy area is really nice and it's so close to great walking and road riding which we do both. The surf was up while we were there and it was a great place to walk and watch all the action in the water. There is also a little store walking distance for somethings you may have forgotten like salt! We'll be back!

Owner's Response: I think the winter months are perfect for snow birds. The crowds have gone home; the climate is mild; the cottage is very comfortable, the kitchen is very practical, the cost is reasonable and the location can’t be beat. I never get tired of coming back to it. I am delighted to see other retired folks take advantage of the opportunity to spend a little time on Pleasure Point. Do come back again. If you want a whole month, you will need to book well in advance.

Poor value

  • 1 of 5
There are many positive reviews but my family had a different experience. The place is very small but in a great location just off Pleasure Point. My primary issue was the place was dirty. There was dog hair all over the place including the floor and the couch. Overall the place was not clean. I found the owner helpful as she offered to send the cleaning staff back and refund half our cleaning deposit. However, for an expensive cleaning fee, I expected more. We have a dog ourselves and have stayed in many dog friendly accommodations in the past but I felt this was poor value for the price. Because our 10 month old was picking up dog hair everywhere he crawled, we actually left after 1 night despite paying for 2 nights. I hope you have a better experience than we did.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately, there must have been an error in the scheduling process. The housekeepers are generally very thorough. Problems like this can be avoided by making requests for booking well in advance.

Decent value

  • 4 of 5
Positive:
Excellent location two blocks from Pleasure Point. Great place for dogs with gated yard. Quiet and convenient. Outdoor BBQ and patio furniture a plus!

Negative:
Fairly clean, but still needed to wash dishes that either weren't washed or not washed well. Noticed coffee grounds all over floor begin garbage upon arrival an dirty walls by coffee maker. Kitchen utensils were okay. Sofa was the most uncomfortable I've ever used. Bed was decent. Almost ran out of propane in the middle of bbqing.

Decent price for the place, but may be worth shopping around. Pay attention to cleaning cost and non-refundable "deposit processing fee", in addition to nightly rate, when comparing prices with other places.

Loved this place!

  • 5 of 5
A lovely, well-appointed abode, very quiet despite its close proximity to the gorgeous Pleasure Point walk. The directions were great. Everything was as promised. We were only there for a couple of days but we wished we had more. Would love to come back sometime soon.

Nice and clean

  • 4 of 5
The cottage was cute, clean and just right for 3 people. It wasn't luxury accommodations, but it was good for a beach weekend. I was a little frustrated by having to chase down the owner, with multiple phone calls and emails, to confirm my reservation and that may have been a result of my reservation being done a few days before my arrival. It all worked out and we were pleased overall.

The cottage is less than two blocks from one of the finest surfing spots on the west coast. It's half way between Carmel By the Sea and San Francisco, on Monterey Bay, close to Old Capitola.

Driving North look for the Santa Cruz Harbor (great place for breakfast, lunch or dinner and evening entertainment); discover Light House Field State Beach ( good surfing and great place to walk dogs), Natural Bridges (observe Monarch butterflies), Wilder Ranch Beach (historic site), Davenport Beach (tiny town with a good bakery),and Four-mile Beach (known for beach parties), Scotts Creek Beach, (a favorite for beach combing ) Wadell Creek Beach, a (a good spot for wind-surfing) Bonny Dune Beach and Red-White-Blue (clothing is optional). Come and discover how many beaches you can find to leave your foot prints in the sand!

If you want more adventure: Hike, ride a zip line or train through the beautiful redwood forests of the Santa Cruz mountains. Visit the UCSC Campus, the Monterey Bay Aquarium or play a round of golf. Drive up the coast to San Francisco, and walk across the Golden Gate Bridge. You'll never forget it!
