Why Irene Ericksen - Manager, Monica and Kalika Bowman - Owners chose Santa Cruz

This is Pleasure Point! Who wouldn't want to be here, located within walking distance to some of the best beaches and surf spots on the west coast! We are so lucky to be here, to feel the ocean air and enjoy this amazing custom designed home. It is architecturally unique and beautiful. Everything from the custom copper, decorative etched glass windows, handmade stainless steel banana leaf railings, the solid book matched marble throughout the whole home. Many of the light fixtures are hand blown in Italy. The art work is done by local artists. Lovingly cared for, for you to enjoy~

What makes this house unique

This LUXURIOUS HOME provides every comfort we can think of for our guests. You can relax indoors or outdoors in the tropical yards, the soft water system through out the home leaves your skin and hair feeling great! Ipod stations on every floor. Ask for a 30 pin to Lightning adapter to borrow. Every comfort is thought of :)

y family enjoyed a week long visit to Santa Cruz with a one day trip to the Boardwalk, a short drive from this home. The rest of the time we spent at the 3 beaches that are a short walk from the home. The little ones enjoyed the hot tub each night before bed. It is small but worked great for us. Short walk to a corner store & short drive to Costco. Great home, great beached.

The true jewel of Santa Cruz

  • 5 of 5

As someone said below, the pictures show that the house looks nice, but they don't do justice to how nice it really is.

Everyone had an amazing time, both enjoying the many spaces in the house, as well as going to the beach just a few steps away.

Amazing New Years in Santa Cruz!

  • 5 of 5

This was a fantastic rental for a few families to ring in the New Year! There was something for everyone as we the kids ranged in ages from 8-20! Games were wonderful and recreation toys and foosball were a huge hit! Surf was ten steps away and we tagged it twice a day, every day! Otters and baby otters and dolphin were a bonus! Parents loved the well appointed kitchen where there were abundant cooking utensils and the beverage drawers were a huge addition! A great location for bluff walks, bike rides and easy walk to 41st Street shopping and dining, and ice cream! And we took day trips to the Monterey Bay Aquarium and The Mystery Spot! We said good bye to 2015 in this house...but will definitely be back in 2016! Thank you!

AWESOME HOME!

  • 5 of 5

Our large family rented this beautiful, large, spacious, fully stocked with everything for the kitchen,to all the beach toys you can imagine! We had so much room for us all to spread out and enjoy from the game room to enjoying the lovely backyard where we had a fire in the pit. I really enjoyed having the beach literally across the street. A must try is the yummy breakfast burritos at the corner café. the manager Irene was SO helpful and so sweet to work with. Our family will definitely be back next year and hopefully we can schedule a longer visit. Perfect location to Capitola village and the boardwalk. Thank you again for a wonderful family weekend!

Great for our Team Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Great Location, Great Space, Excellent Management! This house was clean, comfortable, and only a few blocks from the beach. We were able to walk to the beach in the morning, have a coffee at the local coffee / snack shop and be in a central location to the boardwalk and Capitola. The beds were comfortable and we had everything we needed to for our large group. I would stay here again and recommend it to anyone!
