About Steve Clarence

Roger & Steve grew up together in Southern California and missed the beaches and surfing. Thirty years later we found a bit of paradise for our families to enjoy in Pleasure Point which is the banana belt of the Santa Cruz area. 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.

Steve Clarence purchased this house in 2011

Why Steve Clarence chose Pleasure Point

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, ...

What makes this house unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Simply put, 2 days @ BC Surf Shack is not enough! We loved your beautiful home. Our kids enjoyed the Volcom Surf Contest at Pleasure Point, we biked, BBQ'd, indulged at Gayle's, played cards, soaked in the hot tub, enjoyed a spectacular show of Dolphins and Surfers all frolicking in the water. Amazing.



Treasured memories for sure.



The G. family will be back.



Thanks again for everything!

Wonderful!!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for a last hurrah before summer ended and our second baby arrives. We had a wonderful time. The house is well appointed with all sorts of sand/beach toys for kids and adults alike. There were ample towels in the bathrooms and nice sheets on the beds. We could walk pretty much everywhere we wanted to go and when we had to drive, we didn't have to go far. There was lots of space within the home to spread out and the two outside areas (balcony and patio) were great. We are already planning a return trip. Thank you!

Great surf town, great centrally located home!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of five spent a week at the Surf Shack and loved it. The house was well provisioned with everything we needed including gear for the beach - towels, surf boards, chairs etc. and we also made great use of the bikes to ride into town for coffee and to Capitola exploring each morning. The Pleasure Point market down the street had the best breakfast burritos ever, and Steve provided us with a list of all his recommendations which made us feel at home. The vibe on Pleasure Point was great and our teenagers were able to explore the local area on their own, biking to surf shops or walking down to watch the surfers or get breakfast. We could actually hear the waves crashing on the shores from the house and a cool ocean breeze was always present. The yard and hot tub area was totally private and the deck had views of the water. Thanks for a great vacation Steve!

Beach Bliss!

  • 5 of 5
We just had 5 wonderful days at the BC surf shack and can't say enough about how great it was. The house is in a perfect location between 2 beautiful, clean beaches, one for swimming and one for surfing. The house itself is absolutely beautiful and has everything that you will possibly need. The pictures on the website do not do it justice. We used the bikes daily, the ride to capitola breathtaking. After swimming in the ocean the hot tub felt amazing. The area is quiet, clean and alive with the buzz of a true beach town. I grew up at the beach so I am very picky about other beach towns! You won't be disappointed here! Thank you Steve and family!!! We will be back!

Awesome Home!

  • 5 of 5
We just got back from a great weekend at this lovely home. From start to finish everything was perfect with this VRBO rental. Steve was great to communicate with and the booking process was super easy. The house has a ton of room for hanging out--nice deck, big living room/kitchen, which is nice for socializing. The master bedroom is it's own little oasis with a comfy bed and nice sheets. The house is very tastefully furnished. Lots of fun toys and great location! Thanks for sharing your great house with us! I look forward to visiting again!

This house was everything we wanted and more!!

  • 5 of 5
This house was perfect!!! We came to Santa Cruz to run the half marathon and this house was perfect!!! It was in a nice quiet neighborhood and so close to everything.
With the bikes in the garage we barely had to drive once we got here. The boardwalk at Santa Cruz was a short bike ride in one direction and the cute little village of Capitola was the other was !!
This house was perfect!!!

Has it all!!

  • 5 of 5
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!
