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 viewable from our raised deck in the backyard. 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 large backyard (for the beach) with a game room (includes 42" TV, Ms PAC-MAN / Galaga Arcade game, and a foosball table). On the back patio, we have an outdoor dining set, large stainless BBQ, ping-pong table, deck with ocean view, and of course... a large HOT TUB! In the garage, the fun continues with surfboards (beginner and experience riders), boogie boards, wetsuits, beach chairs, umbrella, kids beach toys, red wagon, beach cruisers etc. All for your entertainment and entertaining.

The house has 5 bedrooms. (We have an 8 adult max)

1) The 'master' bedroom with a King Bed and private bathroom.

2) The 'guest' bedroom with a Queen Bed

3) The 'kids' bedroom with a Twin over Full bunk bed

4) The 'breezeway' bedroom with a pull-out/pop-up trundle daybed (two twins or put together for a king)

5) The 'office' bedroom with a twin day bed, also slides out to a queen and a desk for wired/wireless internet

The house has full 2 bathrooms

1) The 'master' bathroom has a shower, toilet, and skylight

2) The 'hallway' bathroom has a shower/tub 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.

House Details

The house is 1500 Sq Ft and a flat roof (which means lower than normal ceilings in the back 2 bedrooms) 7ft guests not recommended.

Check out our get-away in the mountains near Bear Valley Ski resort. Also great in the summer sitting on private lake in Arnold. vrbo #474196

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time at this house! Location was awesome for walking to the beach or getting to the freeway for taking day trips. Layout worked well for two families sharing the house and the backyard was AMAZING for keeping our kids busy and happy. Owners are super nice and right next door! We're already planning for our next trip...😊

Fun Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This house was great for our 3 families, two of which had young kids. The house was well equipped for the kids- lots of toys, books, and puzzles, and my 7 year old loved the game room. The location is great, within short walking distance from the beach, restaurants, and shopping. We would stay here again!

Great Place for Family

  • 5 of 5

This rental was for a family get together and it worked really well for us. Plenty of room to hang out and the beach is close enough to walk to. Met one of the owners while there and they asked if we needed anything during our stay. Thought that was good of them to inquire. I would recommend this rental to anyone looking for a great place to relax and enjoy Santa Cruz.

Pet & Family Friendly, an A+!

  • 5 of 5

This house was all we could have hoped for, and more!

We arrived and saw that all the babies "extras" we brought (stroller, high chair/booster seat, sand toys, ect) were already here! We loved how kid and family friendly this house is! We felt safe to let our son roam around and explore. The house is clean and taken care of, and the back yard is a total bonus!

We plan on staying again, making this trip an annual one!

Great location and amenities!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for a family vacation. The kids room was great for our little ones, and we enjoyed the hot tub, fire pit, game room, ping pong table, and outdoor dining areas. The property is a short walk to the beach, trails, and great shopping along 41st. The house was very clean upon arrival. There was a Pack and Play crib in the closet, but we brought our own. Highly recommended!
