About the property

4 Bdr, 2 Bath, 2 Living Rooms, 2 Kitchens, Game Room (Sleeps 10-14)

Welcome to paradise! You are renting a great beach house in Pleasure Point area of Santa Cruz, CA, the famous surfing and hanging-out beach. The house is a 5min walk to the beach and sits 200 yards from the ocean/cliff. I live next door and purchased this house so visitors with kids (or just kids at heart) would have a fun relaxing time.

The amenities include a backyard with back patio, an outdoor dining set, stainless BBQ, and of course...a large HOT TUB!

In the game room (garage) the fun continues with a foosball table, 9ft shuffle board table, sit down Pac Man/Galaga combo that includes tons of other games. Plus surfboards (beginner and experienced riders), boogie boards, wetsuits, beach chairs, umbrella, kids beach toys. All for your entertainment and entertaining.

The house has 4 bedrooms.

1) The 'Upstairs Queen' bedroom has a Queen Bed.

2) The 'Downstairs Queen' bedroom has a Queen Bed

3) The 'Upstairs Bunk Bed' bedroom has two twin-over-twin bunk bed and one has a pull-out futon twin trundle

4) The 'Downstairs Bunk Bed' bedroom with a Twin over full/futon bunk bed and a twin-over-twin bunk bed

The house has full 2 bathrooms

1) The 'upstairs' bathroom has a shower/tub and toilet

2) The 'downstairs' bathroom has a pebble-lined shower and toilet.

The kitchen is loaded with stainless steel appliances and fully stocked with cookware.

The house sits on a private road. No parking passes required. In addition, the house is on a cul-de-sac which leads to low traffic for a beach house. Safe for playing in the street. The house sleeps 10-14, but we limit adults at 10 to help keep traffic down and our neighbors happy.

House Details

The house is 2000 Sq Ft, 2-story with a kitchen and family room on both levels

Pleasure Point Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The entire experience from reserving to checking out was efficient, easy and just wonderful. The owners are easy to work with and very cooperative. The house is fantastic, very well equipped and an easy walk to a beautiful beach and a short drive to all of Santa Cruz. Thank you!

So much room for all guests. Very convenient with both kitchen and living area on both floors. Very nicely updated. Beds were very comfortable and so much room. Beautiful backyard for outdoor BBQ-ing & lounging. Hot tub was the perfect touch. Quiet and clean neighborhood. One block from the beach for super easy access. Owners were very delightful and accommodating. Overall our trip was amazing would recommend to friends and family. If you don't book this house you're crazy! Thank you again so much!

Great beach house for a large group

  • 5 of 5

Several of the women in my family picked this home for our traditional girls' weekend on the beach. We selected this home for the location and the pictures we saw on VRBO, and it would accommodate our group of 11. We were not disappointed. We had a wonderful time, and this home helped to make it so.

The sleeping arrangements worked out very well for us, the kitchen had everything we needed, had a blast in the game room, took advantage of all the beach accessories, including wet suits, and loved the hot tub. The fact that the upstairs and downstairs had their own kitchen and living room was a big plus, since we weren't all on top of each other all the time. The walk-to beach isn't always the best to hang out on, due to the tides, etc., but the views at the beach were beautiful, with a walking path all along the cliff. And other great beaches were within a short drive.

I would definitely recommend this home to family and friends, and I wouldn't hesitate to rent it again when I have another large group.

Great place for families.

  • 5 of 5

Pleasant Point Palms is a wonderful place to stay. The house is spacious and in excellent condition. The two story house is a great place for families with kids. We slept on the top floor with our adult daughter in the other room and our son, his wife and kids slept downstairs (with the fantastic gameroom close by). We cooked mostly in the main kitchen but it was great to be able to feed the kids in the downstairs kitchen before the rest of the adults were up. The kids were entranced with all the games, dress up clothes etc. available to discover. They played packman and foosball with all of us. The kitchens are well equipped with utensils and dishes etc. We really enjoyed the hot tub and the lovely back yard. We had a couple of needs and the owners were quick to take care of them. We would highly recommend this house.

Great host, fantastic house, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The house is equipped with everything you need to have a great time. It's centrally located, but provides a good amount of privacy. We surfed in the mornings, and spent the afternoon BBQing and lounging in the hot tub. Overall a terrific experience, highly recommend!
