About The Owner

In short, we love the beach! When our children were young, we would come and play at this beach. We were so excited to find this wonderful beach house and have created many great memories here.

The Owner purchased this house in 2000

Why The Owner chose Pleasure Point

We fell in love with the unique architecture, bright open spaces of the house and the huge solarium windows across the front. But the biggest reason we bought this house is the views! The Monterey Bay is right outside your window where you can watch the lights of Monterey twinkle at night, the fog roll in from the Pacific and the sailboats float by. When we first saw the house…it took our breath away!

Our beach house is in one of the sunniest, warmest spots in Santa Cruz. The beach is wide and easily accessible just one short block from the house. The location is perfect...nestled right between the Wharf, the Boardwalk and Capitola.

What makes this house unique

We love walking down to the beach to watch the surfers up and down the coast and the sunset over the Pacific Ocean in the late afternoon. At night, we either walk or drive to the great restaurants close by.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear VRBO -



My family stayed at Sandcastle property in Santa Cruz for the week of Thanksgiving 2012. We have two adult daughters and various significant others plus our son and his family who live in Santa Cruz. The Sandcastle house was perfect! Plenty of room for everyone to have their own space, plus wonderful space to all be together. The kitchen was equipped just about everything we needed to prepare Thanksgiving dinner for a large crowd. There are fun games (ping pong, foosball, basketball) for everyone to enjoy, plus lots of televisions, movies, games! All we could have asked for and more! The beach is a block and a half away, and we were fortunate to have spectacular weather.



We will be back!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
Carolyn and Kipp's home is perfect! Lots of room for everyone, with beautiful views and very well stocked with everything you could need for beaching, cooking, playing, or just relaxing. It is beautifully decorated with a sea/beach theme. It met all our needs and more. It was great working with the owners. Great location and within walking distance of a nice beach, restaurants and tamales! I would highly recommend this vacation rental for large groups.

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
This is a great house for families. Lots of room and activities, like Ping-Pong table, Fooz- ball table, and easy access to the beach just one block away. Great views of the ocean. Fully equipped kitchen, and all the amenities that you need. We had a great time at the beach, Boardwalk or just hanging around the house reading, playing card or board games, or watching one of the several TV's. Great for ages, 5-65. Wonderful week for all!

Awesome experience

  • 5 of 5
From Ohio looking for a beach home for myself, two of my children with their young families to attend my youngest son's wedding. We found this home that seemed that it would accommodate our needs. It was wonderful. The owners, Carolyn & Kip had really worked with us. We needed it come in on a thurs to be ready for wedding prep for Sat. The place was very roomy, had a crib & highchair for my 2 yr old granddaughter, double bunk beds for the three boys. The neighbor hood was quiet, the house was very clean and met all of our needs! We received our deposit back in a week and would certainly recommend this home to anyone!! Thank you Carolyn & Kip for helping to make our special occasion very memorable!!

The house is beautiful and has everything needed for a family vacation. The location is excellent and a great home base to visit other attractions in the area, such as the Monterey Bay Aquarium, San Francisco, and Great America.

Wonderful Cousin Reunion

  • 5 of 5
We came from all over the country to enjoy a few days together in Santa Cruz. The Sandcastle, sight unseen, proved to be the perfect backdrop for our reunion. Now in our late 60's and early 70's, we reveled in our time together, enjoying the sunny home and the wonderful views.

We visited Ano Nuevo State Park to see the Elephant Seals; Elkhorn Slough for a boat ride to see the California Sea Lions, Otters, Harbor seals, and fabulous water foul, Monterey Bay Aquarium, the Monarch Butterflies near Lighthouse Point, and 17 mile drive in Carmel. So much to see, so little time!

We cooked simple meals in the kitchen, never lacking for utensils or pots or pans. The beds were comfortable, the house clean and welcoming. A gift of snack foods greeted us on arrival was enjoyed by all. It met our needs and expectations to a tee.

Ideal Location; Very Spacious and functional house

  • 5 of 5
4 mid-50's guys came for a reunion get together. We loved the fact that the house provided us all our own bedrooms (3 of which had king sized beds) and pretty much our own bathrooms. We could hang out together without feeling packed into a place. The house had many areas to enjoy: kitchen, dining area, nice deck, living room. Really comfortable. The decor is beachy, very appropriate for a Santa Cruz home one block from the beach. I heartily recommend this house.
