Overview

Santa Cruz House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-9)

**SPECTACULAR OCEAN VIEWS** Relax and rejuvenate in our beautiful upscale Mediterranean home. The Great Room is expansive and light filled featuring panoramic ocean views of Monterey Bay, an Italian fireplace, and comfortable furniture. RELAX and DE-STRESS to the sound of waves and smell of ocean breezes from the comfort of your living room, SUNBATHE on the deck, or grab your surf board and hop across the street to SURF the famous waves of 'The Hook' at Pleasure Point. After a day at the beach, walk a few steps home, take a warm rinse in the outdoor shower and a long soak in YOUR PRIVATE JACUZZI surrounded by bougainvillea.

Prepare dinner in your gourmet kitchen while watching the waves and the surfers. Step outside to the garden for some fresh organic lettuce for your evening salad and fire up the grill on the deck next to the kitchen. If your not in the mood to cook, stroll around the block for a choice of sushi, chinese, mexican, or a slice of that famous Pleasure Point Pizza.

Or work up a real appetite with a walk to quaint Capitola by the Sea (10 min.) for an array of appetizing restaurants. (you can walk there on the beach at low tide) Speaking of low tide, we have incredible minus tides which afford hours of exploring in tide pools, searching for star fish and sea anenomes. The kids love this!

End your day relaxing on the deck, listening to the pounding surf while watching the sunset followed by the moon rise. Awake the following morning to an incredible sunrise and a cup of steaming coffee or tea and get ready for another exquisite day in paradise.

Beautiful sunrises and moonrises over the ocean can be had from the comfort of YOUR LUXURIOUS CALIFORNIA KING BED in the master suite. The master bath features double sink, double shower, and large soaking tub. Other 3 guest rooms feature queen size beds.

About Michael Dini

Matt and Michael Dini

We love sailing, golf, world travels, and good friends.

Michael Dini purchased this house in 1992

Why Michael Dini chose Santa Cruz

We wanted to enjoy an easy, relaxed lifestyle so we built a sunny and spacious beach house. We love to play on the beach year round, whether it is sunbathing and boogie boarding or bundled up for long walks and tide pool exploring. The neighborhood is friendly and we can walk or bike to many restaurants and the grocery store. We feel like everyday is a vacation!

What makes this house unique

Pleasure Point is an International Surf destination. While you are here, you can surf right out your front door, then enjoy a warm outdoor shower and a hot tub. In July the famous wharf to wharf race goes right by the house. You can stay above the crowd and enjoy the band and street party from the deck or pop outside into the party. On the fourth of July you can view the fireworks from the deck. But usually it's pretty quite around here, easy to unwind and just be grateful for a beautiful life.

Guestbook comments from the owner

WOW, did your home make our weekend special! The girl scout bridging ceremony was wonderful down on your beach. They came as cadettes and are leaving as seniors. This will be remembered often in the years to come as one of the best activities ever. Thank you for having us.

8 Selfies Together Make A Family

  • 5 of 5
Family fun for all - from 6 to 60-something - was our goal, and we all agreed we couldn't have chosen a better place for our annual 4th of July outing. When we were "home", we were very comfortable and were able to spread out to watch TV, play games, hot tub, read, or prepare our next fantastic meal. The location (for walking, biking, sunbathing, and people watching), and the ocean views were the stars of our event - except for the granddaughters, of course. Anyway, we highly recommend this vacation home and plan to return in the future!

Absolutely beautiful house and amazing location!

  • 5 of 5
This house was more amazing than the photos! It's also an amazing location, you can't beat the view of the ocean. It was relaxing to sit on the balcony and hear the sound of the waves. Not only is there an amazing ocean view, but it's also walking distance from breakfast spots, shops, and more. You can't go wrong with this rental.

Family July 4th vacation

  • 5 of 5
We so very much enjoyed the time spent with our family at this property. Everyone agreed that this was our favorite of all the Santa Cruz rentals we’ve stayed at over the past 7 years.

The views were spectacular and the location exceeded everyone's expectations...our kids walked to the private beach, great paths for jogging, and it was very close to Capitola shopping and dining! We would certainly consider renting again!

Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5
My family all met here to do a memorial service and the house was perfect. We had seven adults and one child and there was room for everyone. The location was amazing, just steps from the beach, and the views were unbeatable! We walked to ice cream one evening, we made two to three trips a day down to the beach, we attended a festival that was nearby one of the weekend days and we people watched for hours on end. It was amazing how there were so many people on the walk way and yet there was a calmness in the house itself. As far as driving to do the touristy stuff, we were 5-10 minutes away, so close enough to get there quickly, but not in the heart of the crowds! The homeowners were responsive to all of our needs, and we definitely over packed as the house really did have everything that you would need! We would love to stay here again!

Even better than advertised

  • 5 of 5
The photos of the property don't convey the smell of the sea, the sounds of seagulls and crashing waves that awaits you at each open window. The property is very well cared for, and I would call the kitchen extremely well equipped for a rental. Beachgoers were constantly on the move on the sidewalk across the street, but for me this only added to the experience. Car noise is minimal, won't be a problem. The property owner gave excellent nearby grocery & restaurant recommendations. Excellent stereo in the house, too, with speakers in most rooms.

Beachfront at Opel Cliffs? Spectacular

  • 5 of 5
The pix on the website don't do the panoramic view justice. They couldn't possibly!

We enjoyed 6 days at this beautiful house in Santa Cruz. We had 5 adults and 4 kids, and there was plenty of room. House had everything we could possibly have needed. Even the one thing it was missing (a hair dryer), one of the home's gracious owners stopped by 15 minutes after we called him to drop off a brand new hair dryer. You're in great hands with Matt and Michael--they couldn't have been nicer and bent over backwards to provide everything from restaurant advice to, well, hair dryers.

We loved the people watching on the beachfront path from the house's deck and upper floor. We hit the hot tub almost every night. You can watch surfers all daylight hours. We recommend strolling down the path along Opel Cliffs down to the market, where you can get killer breakfast burritos.

If you have toddlers who don't manage stairs that well, you may want to think about a contraption to block the stairs. Our young ones managed the stairs pretty quickly, though.

While we vey much enjoyed the CD collection in the house (good mix of classic rock, easy listening, new age--but mostly from 70s and 80s), if you have different tastes, you may want to bring either your own CDs, or better, an RCA adapter so you can connect your smartphone to play your own tunes through the very nice sound system throughout the house's upper floors.

Gas BBQ grill worked great--we cooked out several times. Brats and beers in the evening, with the backdrop of the surf as dusk approaches--you can't beat it. Life is good at this home away from home.

Many thanks to Michael and Matt. Wouldn't hesitate to stay again next time we're in Santa Cruz!
