1 BDRM DOG FRIENDLY PLEASURE POINT COTTAGE, BEST BARGAIN IN SANTA CRUZ!

Pleasure Point Cottage Rental Photos and Description

1br Beach Cottage, experience all Pleasure Point has to offer+WiFi, pet friendly

Pleasure Point Cottage (clean, comfortable and close to the beach) 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 ) Wadell 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.

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

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.

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.

Excellent rental!

Really nice place to stay in Pleasure Point. Only a short walk to the cafe and walkway overlooking the surfers. We had an absolutely wonderful time and hope to return soon. The rental space was perfect and nice for our needs and was located in a wonderful neighborhood. I would certainly recommend staying here.

A perfect week!!!

  • 5 of 5
Hello...I just returned from one perfect week at this lovely little cottage two short blocks from the ocean in Pleasure Point. Happily, I found everything in the cottage just as described in the listing description. It was obvious to me that the owners take pride in their property. The little enclosed yard with well maintained lawn was perfect for my small dog. We enjoyed our early morning walks by the ocean and watching the many surfers. I especially appreciated the quiet location, off street parking and friendly neighbors. I will definitely stay here again.

We had a great weekend in Santa Cruz and the surrounding areas. I finished the marathon, while the family enjoyed the beach. So everyone had a good time! Thank you, Lorraine, for providing such a nice place.

Very cozy!

  • 5 of 5
The Pleasure Point cottage was just what we/I wanted for a our little family get together. I cooked up a storm in the perfect size kitchen. The place was big enough for the two of us and then Sunday morning huge breakfast and evening meals for 5 of us was cozy and comfy. The little yard in the front was great for hanging out and the sun was on it all day! Thank you again for our little escape to family. We brought bikes and having the shed for safe storage was great! We will return!

We were very pleased with our vacation stay at pleasure point. Our cottage was very clean and had all items needed to make our stay comfortable.. We would definitely stay there again, hopefully in the near future. The owner was very helpful in answering any concerns we had. We would recommend our cottage to friends and family. The washer and dryer was of great help to us.

PERFECT for my first California get-away!

  • 5 of 5
This Pleasure Point cottage is ALL that is promised, and MORE! It was impressively neat and clean, pleasantly decorated and extremely well equipped. The shower was super and the bed was very comfortable. The couch got good reviews from my overnight guests. Also, I truly appreciated the convenience of the washer/dryer and WiFi! I loved the front yard with the wonderful plants, hedges and flowers! The patio set was perfect for morning coffee time or wonderful lunches after long walks on the beach. I didn't use the gas grill but certainly appreciated it being there if the occasion presented itself. Parking in the driveway in front of the cottage is definitely a plus! The neighborhood is very nice and quiet and is well lighted for those night time walks to the ocean. The BONUS part of this wonderful Santa Cruz cottage is definitely Virgil and Lorraine! They're two very caring and attentive owners who were genuinely interested in making my visit to Pleasure Point all that I dreamed it could be. Thank you, Virgil and Lorraine! I'm already thinking about next year!

Owner's Response: Pleasure Point makes a terrific "get away", especially in the winter and early spring. The climate is relatively mild; the beaches are clean and uncrowded; and the locals are welcoming. It seems like paradise compared to the winters experienced elsewhere. Do come again!
