Walk to Beaches, Premier Surfing & Dining! This completely renovated beautiful Mediterranean home has it all! The large 2 story sun-filled home (2600 sq. feet) offers 5 bedrooms & 3 full baths, including a large master bedroom suite upstairs with new hardwood floors in addition to hardwood throughout the entire ground floor.

The fully stocked eat-in kitchen with all-new appliances opens to a large breakfast bar and great room, perfect for gathering with family and friends. The spacious sunny upstairs family room with high ceilings has a large 42' TV, sectional sofa and opens to a tiled balcony facing the ocean a few blocks away.

Why The Owner chose Santa Cruz

We love this area because we (including our teens!) can walk to so many things--the beach, surfing, a cup of coffee, the surf shops, pizza or Capitola!

What makes this house unique

Once the renovations were complete, we fell in love with our family-friendly neighborhood, the fantastic location, and the warm, sunny feeling of our home.

Perfect Home and Location

  • 5 of 5

We rented the home for Thanksgiving with the California contingent of our family. Wonderful home. Quiet street. Could not possibly be more conveniently located. Close to the beach(es), walking distance (15 minutes) to supermarkets, a little farther walk to Capitola, much shorter walks to coffee shop, wonderful restaurants.

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home just a few blocks away from the coastline. There is great access to surfing just a few minute walk away. It is in peaceful Pleasure Point, away from the busy boardwalk area, but close enough that you can get there with just a short drive. The home itself is beautiful and made our week-long family vacation wonderful. The house was well furnished, clean, and updated. However, keep in mind that one of the bedrooms has a sofa bed, not a regular bed, and one of the rooms has a bunk bed. The master bedroom and bathroom are quite large and beautiful. The kitchen is spacious and has everything you need if you want to cook. My family and I cooked breakfast and dinner about every day and it was great. We were there during a rather warm week and, as I suspect with most homes in the area, there is no air conditioning. However, there are also no ceiling fans. However, it cools off very nicely in the evenings and leaving the windows open in the evenings and morning was enough to keep the place cool. Overall it was a great house and we would stay there again. The owner is very nice but can be a bit difficult to get in touch with in the beginning. Once we booked our stay she was very responsive and helpful.

Pleasure Point Treasure

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful and spacious vacation home in the Pleasure Point area of Santa Cruz. The location was very convenient for walking to the beach (including the private beach just a couple blocks away), and to many casual dining options and stores. We brought 3 generations and everyone was very comfortable and enjoyed themselves. We'd definitely stay here again - the home was well appointed, clean and maintained. The owners were a pleasure to work with.

A Happy place

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely wonderful place! Very nicely decorated. Comfortable and very clean. I hope it stays this way, because I'd like to come back every year. The private beach close by is just so perfect.

Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Great location near restaurants and drivable to the beach, Monterey, Big Sur etc. Community was lots of fun. We really our enjoyed our stay here. The owners were very responsive and helpful in making our stay easy and relaxing. The house was lovely, better than the pictures. We'd certainly consider returning in the future.

review of ocean view home in santa cruz, ca

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed our stay at your lovely home. The house was very spacious and the beds were very comfortable. We really enjoyed the sunny patio. We all had a great time at the private beach. It was also an easy one mile walk to the Capitola village. We would stay here again and recommend the house to our friends.
