About Roger Bloom

Roger & Steve grew up together in Southern California and missed the beaches and surfing. Thirty years later they found a bit of paradise for our families to enjoy in Pleasure Point which is the banana belt of the Santa Cruz area. We all fell in love with Pleasure Point as it is less than an hour drive from our homes. We love to surf and enjoy the nearby walking path to Capitola and the fun local restaurants.

Roger Bloom purchased this house in 2011

Why Roger Bloom chose Santa Cruz

We chose to buy this home because it is everything we wanted and less than an hour's drive from Silicon Valley.

When we walk in the door we feel as though we are miles away.

We wanted a home that has easy walking access to beaches, shops and restaurants.

There is so much to do in this beautiful area including: the amusement park, Capitola Village, UC Santa Cruz, Santa Cruz wineries, Elkhorn Slough for kyaking with sea otters, the Monterey Bay Aquarium, the Annie Glass outlet, bike riding, fishing, birding, Pacific Grove Mall, whale watching, ...

What makes this house unique

I do not like to drive and prefer to walk to shops, restaurants. I like the 30 minute stroll along the coast to Capitola for lunch at my favorite Paradise Beach cafe. We can surf or read on the sunny deck. Bonfires in the sand only a half block away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Steve... I can't tell you enough how much we enjoyed your house... Everything was wonderful and it seemed like there wasn't anything you didn't have utensils, pots and pans, wine glasses, coffee pots and every condiment you could want for cooking... The downstairs suite was such a delight.. My son and his wife stayed there and I really didn't think they were going to leave.. We all hung out downstairs on your beautiful patio because of the 'heatwave'... It was quite warm upstairs but it cooled off at night and the mornings were beautiful... We couldn't believe the one weekend we come to Santa Cruz there is a 'heatwave'!!!

We took long walks along the ocean and watched the surfers... We ate at a great Italian restaurant and the market was just down the street for anything we wanted...

Our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer... It was such a beautiful home in a beautiful area...

Thank you again for being so nice and making the booking process so easy...I will definitely recommend your home to our friends and I guarantee you we will be back!!!

Best Santa Cruz Vacation EVER!

  • 5 of 5

The house was more than we could have ever imagined and was perfect for our week long family vacation. Our children loved the hot tub and the super close location to the beach! We made fantastic memories relaxing on the top deck and hanging out in the gigantic family room. You can't get a better location, a block to the beach and the Point Market for the best breakfast burritos you've ever had! The house itself was gigantic and fully stocked with everything you need to relax and enjoy the beautiful beach and weather. Thank you Roger for being so easy to work with and we really enjoyed the bikes and boogie boards! We are already planning a return trip and can't wait!

I brought my family to Santa Cruz the week before my nephews wedding, mom and four 20 somethings. We had a blast. The house was exactly as it was described. We had lots of room to spread out and enjoyed all the amenities. We used the bikes to bike to the store and beach. Loved the hot tub late at night. The house was centrally located so we took day trips to Monterrey, Moss Landing for Whale Watching, surfing on West Cliff and of course the board walk. The owners Steve and Roger were great to work with and very responsive to questions or concerns. We would definitely come back again to rent this great house. Thanks for a wonderful vacation. Would definitely recommend!

Beautiful, Wonderful, Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Hello Pleasure Point,

The home was beautiful perfect for our Sweet 16 getaway with the girls. My only regrets is we didn't stay longer to enjoy all it's surroundings. The home was equipped with everything needed to enjoy a fun day on the beach for all ages. The property is well kept, located near everything we wanted to do from our hike, bonfire pits, ziplining, it was just a wonderful weekend. I recommend this home to everyone and will definitely be back.

Roger thank you... a weekend we will never forget.

A great Family Vacation home

  • 5 of 5

In spite of lots of rain our family had a wonderful stay at BC Surf. A well-appointed home with lots of amenities and kitchen items, which made eating at home easy and comfortable. The grandkids loved the beach, the bikes & the boardwalk. I highly recommend this home to any group looking for a great get away.
