Overview

Pleasure Point Cottage Rental Photos and Description

1BR beach cottage, 3 blocks to beach + short drive to the board walk!!!

The scenery is breath taking. The wave action is spectacular. Park your car in the driveway and when you have made yourself at home, walk less than three blocks from the front door of Pleasure Point Cottage to Opal Cliff, one of the finest surfing spots on the West coast! The climate is mild; and, there is plenty of room to take your dog for a stroll, ride a bike, leave your footprints in the sand, or sit and observe, and enjoy the fresh ocean air. It's only a ten minute drive or bike ride to The Boardwalk Amusement Park. You will find our Pleasure Point Cottage provides the perfect home base for a wonderful pre-Christmas with your loved one. Your dog is welcome to come too!

The kitchen is equipped with all of the basic appliances, including a gas stove, and microwave, electric coffee pot, dishes and cookware.

A comfy queen size bed is prepared with fresh linens, ready for a good night's sleep on the main floor. An additional double size bed, in a sleeping loft above the kitchen, can be accessed by a stationary ladder. We also have sleeping mats and extra bedding available on the main floor if you prefer not to use the ladder.

Because of its size and configuration, the cottage is not appropriate for small children or for entertaining; but, it is perfect for individuals and couples at a very reasonable rate.

The bathroom, is in the center of the cottage; it has a shower; fresh towels and a hair dryer.

Utilities, Wi-Fi and cable TV, water, waste management are provided.

The cottage has its own fenced back yard with a large, private patio, barbeque and picnic table. The gardener comes by weekly to maintain the plant life. A shed in the back yard is a good spot for storing your surf board, bike or extra luggage.

The waste management and driveway are shared with two other cottages.

Santa Cruz has 29 miles of sand and surf that make Santa Cruz the home of surfing, a sport that connects you to the sea in a way that nothing else can. Cowell's Beach, Steamer Lane, (a favorite surfing spot), Twin Beach, and Castle Beach, are near the Santa Cruz Wharf.

Driving south of Pleasure Point, you will find Manresa Beach, La Selva, Capitola Beach, Seacliff Beach (sunken cement ship), Seascape Beach, and Sunset Beach (romance ).

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, a (a good spot for wind-surfing) Bonny Dune Beach and Red-White-Blue (clothing is optional).

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. This is a trip through the towering redwoods and back. If you want more adventure: Hike, ride a zip line or bike through the beautiful redwood forests of the Santa Cruz mountains. The opportunities for fun in Santa Cruz are endless!

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 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, we have become 'snow birds'. 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: The mild climate, the fresh air, the pounding surf, fine food,long leisurely walks, and beautiful scenery.

Lorraine Heng purchased this cottage in 1979

Why Lorraine Heng chose Pleasure Point

We love the ambience, especially the fresh ocean air 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 San Francisco peninsula 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 while enjoying a fine fish dinner at Moss Landing as the sun sets.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Lorraine, your place is absolutely wonderful with everything we could ever need. I really love the loft. I slept like a baby. Just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate what you have done with the place. You optimized the space very well. We will truly enjoy ourselves. It will be hard to leave. Thank you so much.

Pleasure Point Beach Cottage Hidden Capitola Gem with Secret Garden

  • 5 of 5
We've stayed in this wonderful property several times over the past few years, each experiance improved over the previous visit. What had been a cute funky Capitola cottage has been lovingly and carefully refurbished with attention to detail and comfort. Morning coffee in the hidden garden outside the bedroom was a great way to begin the day. Downtown Capitola is an easy walk along the wonderful sea cliffs. There are always surfers at the point. The photos do not fully show the inside charm of the property but the description is accurate. Lorraine and Virgil are a pleasure to work with, helpful and very responsive. Clam chowder at the end of the Capatola pier is a great inexpensive lunch.

Cozy Cottage

  • 4 of 5
Really enjoyed our stay. Great location, close to beach and surf. Private back yard. Plenty of safe storage for all your toys, (bikes, surfboards, etc). Quiet, off the street. Good for 2 people, sleeping loft is not easily accessible. Small kitchen but serviceable. Bathroom could use an upgrade. We'll definitely go back.

Charming and So Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
Pleasure Point Cottage is really charming and so perfect! We had a great time. The weather was beautiful and so was the backyard. The dog enjoyed it too, and we saw lots of other dogs walking down by the beach.

25th anniversary

  • 5 of 5
The cottage was the perfect place to spend our 25th anniversary. It was walking distance to the beach and our dog loved the back yard. We believe it is well worth the price and are planning our next visit.

Cute & comfortable

Cute & comfortable
  • 3 of 5
My review is really more about preferences. The cottage is cute. The bed is a queen and is comfortable if you like soft beds. My husband likes a firm bed and did not sleep well during our 3 nite stay. The kitchen was fine, it has 1 of most anything you need. The bedroom/living area was very comfortable and plenty of room for the 2 of us...it would be crowded and awkward to have more than 2 people stay here. The living room and bedroom are in the same room. There it's a loft with a double bed in it, but you might hit your head on the ceiling if you were to sit up in the middle of the night. You enter directly into the eating area/ kitchen. The only negative ( & it is a BIG negative for me) is the bathroom. It splits the bedroom/living room & the kitchen. It is exceptionally small! Counter space was 1foot long by 6 inces wide. You can literally wash your hands while sitting on the toilet out there is about 2 1/2 feet between the toilet and the sink cabinet. The shower is 3 feet by 3 feet. With my back against the wall, I could put my hand flat on the opposite wall. I am 5'5". This made shaving and moving very difficult. The water pressure was very slow, kinda like a rain shower, which I do not like in the least. I like a steady strong shower. So over all I give it 3 1/2 stars. We probably won't stay here again, but it does have everything you need, is 2 blocks from the ocean, and the backyard patio and look of the outside of the cottage is adorable. Lorraine was very kind and helpful and we received our deposit back within 5 days of returning.

Owner's Response: If you prefer to focus your time and energy on the bathroom, this probably won't be the place for you. The bathroom is not luxurious; it's adequate. The overall condition of the cottage is good. The location is prime. and the price is reasonable. Our goal is to provide a clean, comfortable, private retreat at an affordable price. A bathroom remodel may be in the future, but not yet. Cost is a factor.

Pleasure Point
Car: recommended

Pleasure Point is one of the best surfing spots on the West Coast. Santa Cruz is the home of the Beach Board Walk (amusement park). Try kyaking in the Moss Landing slough to observe wild life. Drive the coastal route between Camel-by-the-Sea and San Francisco.

Santa Cruz County has 29 miles of beaches to explore: Cowell's Beach, Steamer Lane, (a favorite surfing spot), Twin Beach, and Castle Beach, are all near the Santa Cruz Wharf.

Driving south from Pleasure Point Cottage, you will find Manresa Beach, La Selva, Capitola Beach, Seacliff Beach (sunken cement ship), Seascape Beach, and Sunset Beach (romance ).

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. Create an experience you'll never forget!
