We fell in love with Pleasure Point as it is only an hour drive from our home. We love to surf and I enjoy the nearby walking path to Capitola and the fun local restaurants.

Our partners look forward to bringing their new grand daughter to Santa Cruz and making it a destination for the entire family.

Steve Clarence purchased this house in 2011

We chose to buy this home because it is everything we wanted and less than an hour's drive from Silicon Valley.

When we walk in the door we feel as though we are miles away.

We wanted a home that has easy walking access to beaches, shops and restaurants.

There is so much to do in this beautiful area including: the amusement park, Capitola Village, UC Santa Cruz, Santa Cruz wineries, Elkhorn Slough for kyaking with sea otters, the Monterey Bay Aquarium, the Annie Glass outlet, bike riding, fishing, birding, Pacific Grove Mall, whale watching, ...

I do not like to drive and prefer to walk to shops, restaurants. I like the 30 minute stroll along the coast to Capitola for lunch at my favorite Paradise Beach cafe. We can surf or read on the sunny deck.

Our family spent 3 nights at the Surf Shack and a wonderful time was had by all. We chose this place for the location and because it came with the use of bikes, surfboards, boggie boards and beach items. We had such a great time riding and exploring the area. We road to Capitola a few times and enjoyed the shops there. Our teenagers loved Pleasure Pizza and both of them bought skateboards at the Santa Cruz beach shop and road them all around the point! It was great to watch the surfers and walk the area on Cliff Dr. We only wish we would have had more time and hope to come back again. We also loved the hot tub, especially because it was a little disappointing that the weather was cooler than what we would have liked for laying out at the beach. The backyard was like our own warm, tropical, sunny oasis! It sure was rest and relaxation for these sick-of-winter Chicago suburbians. The owner Steve was very helpful from responding promptly to my first inquiry to answering my questions about the area. The house is set up so nice and easily accommodated our family of 5 and could have held more very comfortably. Loved that it was light and bright inside and how quiet and comfortable it was sleeping in the master bedroom. You are very blessed to have such and great property and we were blessed that we were able to rent such a great place to experience the California Scene!

We had a great time, walks on the beach every morning after getting coffee at local market! This house has everything you could need to make a perfect vacation! Great location, all the toys you could want with bikes, boogie and surf boards and bikes. We biked and walked everywhere never needed our car once!

Comfortable beds, fully equipped kitchen and hot tub! Just pack your bags and come ... Everything needed is at the house!

Highly recommend, we will be back soon!

The house is really nice. It was clean, clean, clean and had all the supplies you might need. The master bedroom is perfect! Your own private area, separate from the rest of the house. The hot tub was well-maintained and my four grandchildren used it every day after the beach. Having a beach a short walk away was awesome. Games, books and movies for everyone kept us occupied when we weren't using the boogie boards at the beach. Steve was great to work with and we all thank you for sharing your wonderful home with us! See you again as soon as we can! My only complaint had nothing to do with the house - Whole Foods is really expensive! :-)

Optimal LOCATION and wonderful home near beach!

First I want to state that I wish I could have spent more time at this lovely well equipped home in Santa Cruz. My stay was for only 2 nights and could have easily stayed longer.
The area is perfect for anyone wanting to lounge at a quiet family friendly beach or surf the waves or visit local attractions. I stayed with my family and it was the perfect place.
The home is large and like others have said, the pictures do not do this home justice. There are essentially two areas for familys/groups to stay. The upstairs is very entertaining and large. There is a nice living room with a very comfortable leather couch and a big TV for watching your favorite movies/shows. There are 2 outside areas (porch with nice hot-tub and upstairs patio for lounging). We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and I hope to come back again soon!
The beach is a very short walk from the house along a footpath right across the street from the house. This beach was amazing and allows bonfires at night. My five year old daughter loved playing with other children and dogs at this beach. We visited this small beach near Pleasure point many times. We also went to the Santa Cruz boardwalk which is a short 10 minute drive away and easily accessible. Right down the street from the house is a great local market with everything you need, great local coffee, baked goods, food, drinks, etc. The view here is amazing at the store as you can watch surfers out in the morning on the waves.
The house is very clean and there was plenty of room for everyone in our group. Easily could fit 6-8 people but we only had 5. The house is set up so that 2 parties or more can have plenty of privacy as there are 2 kitchens and separate bathrooms and living areas. I found that the beach amenities in the home were nice as well. My daughter tried using a boogie board (so much fun). There are surf boards, towels, chairs, buckets, etc to bring down to the beach if you wish.
The only thing that I would recommend improving is the mattresses/beds. They were a tad worn out and a bit uncomfortable. But that is the only thing.
Lastly, I cannot stress how perfect this home is located if you want to spend a relaxing time at the beach in an absolutely perfect community!! It was quiet and peaceful. Just what we were hoping for.

Great Escape from the City

Our family's stay at "The Surf Shack" was definitely a much needed respite from normal life. The whole process, from booking through the return of deposit, was a comfortable experience. Kudos to Steve and the owners for keeping such a welcoming and well stocked house. It didn't take us long before we had frozen margaritas (every kitchen accessory one could need was easily found) as we enjoyed the great weather and ocean views from the upstairs porch. Our family felt that the Shack had everything we could have possibly needed. We were so busy just enjoying walks on the beach and checking out the local breaks that we hardly got to take advantage of the surfboards and bikes. Which is fine by me because we will definitely be planning a return to trip to make sure we spend a week instead of just a few days! I'd also like to highlight that the place was very "kids friendly". We had three kids under age 5 and the house was well equipped to handle even the smallest guest (blocks, cribs, stroller, high chair, etc.). Thanks again for being such good hosts and we a look forward to another week of warm Santa Cruz sun.
