About the property

Furnished. fully equipped 1 bedroom cottage, 2 blocks from prime surfing, dog OK

Pleasure Point Cottage (clean, comfortable and close to the beach) is the perfect home base for exploring the California Coastal area from Carmel-by-the-Sea to San Francisco. Our delightful one bedroom, attached cottage is about two blocks from one of the best surfing spots on the west coast! The climate is mild; the scenery is spectacular; and, there is always something happening.

Pleasure Point Cottage has its own kitchen with all of the dishes, pots and pans you will need, as well as a coffee pot, microwave, full range, and a side by side refrigerator and a kitchen table with seating for three.

The living room has a white leather sectional sofa, plus desk with internet and cable TV.

The bathroom has a walk-in shower and fresh, clean towels and a hair dryer.

The bedroom has a queen size bed with a new Simons Beauty Rest mattress. The bed is ready with clean linens. Extra bedding is available to create a second sleeping area in the living room if needed.

The cottage even has a small private fenced yard and patio with a bistro set. All utilities, gardener, TV and Wi-Fi and off street parking are provided, as well as a storage area for surf boards and/or bikes. Well behaved dogs are welcome. He/she will appreciate the fenced yard and walks throughout the dog friendly neighborhood.

Santa Cruz has 29 miles of sand and surf and a very mild climate all year round. Driving south of Pleasure Point, you will find Manresa Beach, La Selva, Capitola Beach, Seacliff Beach (sunken cement ship), Seascape Beach, and Sunset Beach . Driving North of Pleasure Point, check out the Santa Cruz Harbor; discover Light House Field State Beach (good surfing and great place to walk dogs).

Natural Bridges State Beach, known for its tide-pooling and famous natural rock bridge, feels secluded but is easily accessible from the road. This state park is a Monarch Butterfly sanctuary for as many as 100,000 butterflies that are drawn to the mild ocean air and eucalyptus grove in the winter months.

Further north are: Wilder Ranch Beach (historic site), Davenport Beach (tiny town with a good bakery),and Four-mile Beach (known for beach parties), Scotts Creek Beach, (a favorite for beach combing ) Wadell Creek Beach, Bonny Dune Beach and the Red-White-Blue .

The county is also blessed with 14 state parks, including the popular Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park, accessible by steam train from the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. If you want more adventure: Hike, ride a bike or zip line or train through the beautiful redwood forests of the Santa Cruz mountains.

If you have a loved one that is college bound, be sure to check out the UCSC Campus.

There are plenty of places in Santa Cruz County to end the day with a glass of wine and a fresh plate of seafood. The pier at the Boardwalk is one favorite places to enjoy breakfast or toast the sunset. The Shadow Brook Restaurant in nearby Capitola would be a wonderful place for a special dining experience. Fragrant gardens and rustic creek-side location add much to the ambience, not to mention a quaint cable car that takes you down to the restaurant and lounge to enjoy live guitar music and happy hour.

About Lorraine Heng

After teaching for thirty-four years and maintaining cars, airplanes and properties for even longer, being parents and grandparents, we have become 'snowbirds'. Creating 'home' along the west coast has been a life long passion. This Pleasure Point Cottage is one of our favorites. It's a place we enjoy coming to for sheer relaxation, and we take delight in creating an affordable vacation option for others.

Lorraine Heng purchased this cottage in 1979

Why Lorraine Heng chose Santa Cruz

We love the ambience, especially the fresh ocean air, the mild climate and natural beauty of Monterey Bay with its powerful surge of ocean waves on the beach. There is a wealth of outdoor activities here, and access to either San Francisco peninsula or Carmel-by-the-Sea is easy from the Santa Cruz area.

What makes this cottage unique

Where else in the world can you, walk out your front door and down the street a couple of blocks to go surfing, comfortably stroll so many beaches, walk the dog through the Light House Field or along the marshes, go deep sea fishing or sailing, go hiking or ride horseback through the nearby redwood forests; or go kayaking in the Elk Horn Slough? A continuing favorite is to watch the otters, birds and sea lions play in the estuary at sun set, while enjoying a fine fish dinner at Moss Landing.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much. We enjoyed our stay. The boys loved it. They liked to play ball in the yard. You have a very nice neighbor who retrieved a ball from her yard for them. : ) We appreciated the floor mats for them to sleep on. We also loved that we could bring our little dog. She is blind and we hate to leave her behind.

Owner's Response: Location, off-street parking, and affordbility are strong points. It has been a priority to continually maintain and upgrade the cottage, It is not a luxery hotel, but it serves its purpose well.

Uncomfortable cottage in great location

  • 3 of 5

Good: nice neighborhood near the beach. Feels safe. Little yard area for your dog, includes all items for cooking.

Not good: lumpy bed felt old and uncomfortable, old furnishings, old dingy bedspread and linens. Expensive.

Owner's Response: Matress is only 2 years old and of good quality. The white leather sectional is about 6 years old. . . and still in good condtion. The tan, cotton comforter was chosen because it is washable. Keeping the overhead down and the property well maintained is important to us.

Great little Cottage

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Pleasure Point. Everything was as described. The kitchen is well stocked and there was plenty of room. We brought our grandsons who enjoyed playing in the yard. We were especially pleased that the cottage is pet friendly. Restaurants and attractions were close. An easy place to get to. Thanks Loraine for such great service.

No information binder

  • 2 of 5

We have used VRBO for years and have always been happy with the rental. However, we found it stressful not to have any information regarding how to set up the TV, etc. and it would have been so helpful if instructions had been provided. We were asked to place our used towels and sheets in the laundry room, but could not find it in the cottage. Finally someone told us that it was located outside, on the back walkway. It would have been good to know that. All our previous rentals had information binders and even offered tips on good restaurants. Additionally, it would have been nice to have a small table in the LR for drinks and snacks. It was tiresome of have to hold cold drinks in our hands with nowhere to put them as the only furniture was a desk and couch. On the plus side, we appreciated the little fenced in garden for our dog and the location of the cottage is great.

A solid three star VRBO

  • 3 of 5

Generally as described: clean, well stocked kitchen and bathroom; one bedroom; living room wth TV, Cable, Internet, and a sectional sofa; and a small, neat sitting area in front of the cottage..Suitable for a couple. The sections of the sectional sofa in the living room are on coasters. A small child or adult contortionist could sleep on it comfortably. Beyond that there are pads for sleeping in the floor. Accessing the cottage was straight forward and the host responded very promptly to emails.

Pleasure Point on Opal Cliff
Car: recommended

The cottage is less than two blocks from one of the finest surfing spots on the west coast. It's half way between Carmel By the Sea and San Francisco, on Monterey Bay, close to Old Capitola.

Santa Cruz County has 29 miles of beaches to explore: Cowell's Beach, Steamer Lane, (a favorite surfing spot), Twin Beach, and Castle Beach, are all near the Santa Cruz Wharf.

Driving south from Pleasure Point Cottage, you will find Manresa Beach, La Selva, Capitola Beach, Seacliff Beach (sunken cement ship), Seascape Beach, and Sunset Beach (romance ).

Driving North look for the Santa Cruz Harbor (great place for breakfast, lunch or dinner and evening entertainment); discover Light House Field State Beach ( good surfing and great place to walk dogs), Natural Bridges (observe Monarch butterflies), Wilder Ranch Beach (historic site), Davenport Beach (tiny town with a good bakery),and Four-mile Beach (known for beach parties), Scotts Creek Beach, (a favorite for beach combing ) Wadell Creek Beach, a (a good spot for wind-surfing) Bonny Dune Beach and Red-White-Blue (clothing is optional). Come and discover how many beaches you can find to leave your foot prints in the sand!

If you want more adventure: Hike, ride a zip line or train through the beautiful redwood forests of the Santa Cruz mountains. Visit the UCSC Campus, the Monterey Bay Aquarium or play a round of golf. Drive up the coast to San Francisco, and walk across the Golden Gate Bridge. You'll never forget it!
