Description of the Santa Cruz vacation home rental
This cozy and freshly remodeled 1920's garden-style bungalow is less than one block from the first of 3 nearby beaches. There is a 5-night minimum during high summer season between mid-June and mid-Sept, unless there is a 2+ night gap between existing reservations. (Call for availability or just check our calendar
Special features include a $10,000 hot tub with a small colored light waterfall & 5-massage type jets. There are 2-bathrooms with showers, a fire-stove with free firewood, an automatic Shiatsu-Massage chair and another smaller recliner. The full good sized kitchen that including a dishwasher, coffee maker, microwave, ice cold filtered water and ice maker, blender, gas stove & broiler, toaster/toaster oven, spices and dishes for eight-plus. Enjoy our Surf boards, Boogie boards, a few assorted wet suits, Outdoor Foosball table, Large Gas BBQ and 6+ bicycles.
This is an open-architecture home, which means that the person in the kitchen can easily talk to the people in the Family Room area. There is only one door in the main home, and it is on the bathroom. The second bathroom is located 10-steps from the backyard door next to the hot tub in a separate building. This building is the owner’s shop and storage area and except for the bathroom, is not part of the vacation rental. It is not occupied during your rental. Please see the floor plan to clarify the layout of the fun home.
A Queen Tempurpetic bed is in 1-alcove with a large closet and a heavy blue velvet privacy curtain. There is comfortable Queen Innerspring Futon in the Family Room alcove and 2-Twin cots with airbed toppers that can be set up in front of the fire-stove. This alcove area is also separated from the rest of the Bungalow by another large blue velvet privacy curtain.
Amenities include Free Local phone, wireless Wi-Fi, all linens & towels, & 6-fluffy bathrobes for use with the hot tub or lazy mornings. There are several bicycles of assorted sizes with helmets and locks, free firewood, local daily newspaper, coffee grinder, Forman Grill and many other items that provide a laid-back luxury experience.
Use our bikes for an easy 12-15 minute ride to the village of Capitola, with its large beach with volleyball, seaside restaurants and fun shops, or enjoy ride the 30-minute ride on the bike paths to the Beach Boardwalk and avoid the parking charge.
Bucks Beach Bungalow is just 9-doors to the first stairway down to the 1st of 3 nearby beaches: If the occasional very high tide limits access the first beach, you can stroll along the large 24-foot wide, walking/biking path to the left about 8-homes away to the next staircase down to a large sandy cove, that is always available. There is another large beach to the right, called Moran Lake which is about 3-blocks north east that has a parking area & bathrooms, and a large sandy beach area that is always available.
The Pleasure Point Park at the corner of 31st Ave is often used for surfing contests and has picnic tables and an outside showers and bathroom facility. Further to the northeast is the world-famous Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk with the coast's oldest wooden roller coaster and to the South is the fun Seaside village of Capitola
Enjoy the large gas barbecue in the backyard as we always have an extra gas tank so you won’t run out during your BBQ. We also have a full-size Foosball table! Several redwood chairs and tables are available to enjoy the front deck and backyard.
Walk to unique shops, coffee shops, ice cream stores and over 15-restaurants within three to five blocks; or just recline in the 2-recliners and enjoy the 100+ free DVD/VHS videos we have available for you to watch, plus our Cable provider has On-Demand programs for you to enjoy..
The street is more of a path, with surfers, bicyclists, and strolling people admiring the beautiful gardens, including the Bungalow's. Sip morning coffee from the front redwood deck and watch the sailboats floating by, while enjoying the fresh gentle breeze.
We have our small short-haired dog stay with us when we stay here; so if you're allergic, be advised we cannot guarantee that every speck of dog will have been removed, though we are usually successful. .
We delight in giving you Free Local knowledge about all the fun activities that will be happening during your stay - please call us for more information or if you'd like to make a reservation with us, the owners since 1999, directly.

Handicapped info for Bungalow = Though our home is not "officially" registered as handicapped accessible, several sets of guests with handicaps have found it comfortable. The parking in back can only accommodate one car if handicapped access is necessary. Other parking for your vehicles is available, without permit, in front of home or anywhere on 35th Ave. Cars must be parked inside the white line which is done by going over the 3" curb onto the small private sidewalk in front of the deck to avoid a parking ticket on the weekends. Two small cars can be parked in front or one large one.
There can be a ramp into back door (by special request), which is the closest door to the cement parking area in back. There is a smooth cement path from parking to back door which is 29/30" wide. Cement Patio with Gas BBQ, Foosball table and Outdoor shower are all accessible. The hot tub is not as it has 3-stairs up to get into the Tub. The back door is 31" wide and the door to the bathroom is 28-1/2" wide. The toilet is next to the door and there is a clear space of 41"x 42" next to it. The shower access, pass sliding glass doors is 20". If the shower door is too small, consider using the outdoor shower which is very private. There are handicapped rails on both inside and outside of shower and next to toilet.
Area Information
Use our 6+ complimentary functional neighborhood cruiser bikes (or bring your own higher-end bike and/or rent specialty bicycles at nearby shops) to ride 10-12 minutes to the South, to the Village of Capitola with its large Beach, complete with volleyball courts, seaside restaurants, and fun shops.
About a 20-30 min bike ride to the North is the world-famous Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk with the West Coast's longest remaining wooden roller coaster and FREE world-class entertainers on Friday nights during the summer. Just walking both locations is good exercise and also fun! This Bungalow is very Pets Friendly with a 6 to 10ft-high fenced in-backyard and an outdoor shower for after beach sessions.

We came for our 25th Anniversary, it was just . .

September 16, 2011

We came for our 25th Anniversary, and it was just perfect!! My wife gave me all sorts of credits for having had fresh flowers put in the Bungalow (I didn't have the heart to tell her that the owners always have them for all guests) Really enjoyed waking up and rolling out the the very private hot tub and listening to the waves and occasional sea lions in the distance while sipping a hot cup of coffee. Took the bicycles out for a fun ride over to the boardwalk and a great lunch on the pier. Also enjoyed the firestove and the shiatsu massage chair. Hope to come back for another anniversay celebration soon. Jim & Mandy from San Francisco

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What are the most fun things to do at your vacation rental?
A: Using our bikes to go to the Village of Capitola or the Beach Boardwalk and avoid the hassle and cost of parking. Watching the surfers any time as well as enjoying the wonderful sea air from the several benches along the newly improved East Cliff Drive - now over 24 feet wide and it goes from Pleasure Point Park at 31st Ave to The Hook at 41st. Both areas have nice new bathrooms too.
Q: What makes your vacation rental special?
A: It's full of laid-back luxury, like a $10,000 hot tub with 3-levels of massage jets, There a small waterfall in the tub with colored lights that are enjoyable at night. The Foosball table in the backyard is fun for all ages. There is free off-street parking so no need to search for a parking space. The cable provider gives us high speed internet and On-Demand TV and Free Movie selection. There is a George Foreman Grill for making great Panini sandwiches or waffles. Ride our free bicycles, and save over $40-60 a day by not having to rent them. Relax in one of two reclining chairs, one that has a back massager on it. 100s of DVD/VHS tapes & discs of great movies. A large reading library that has the complete works of the Wizard of Oz and other fun books. Local daily newspaper and local events magazines. And if your dog is less than 40lbs, there is a great dog door for access to the fenced-in backyard!
