December sunshine

We spent the month of December in Annie's cozy beach cottage. It was definitely small but, with the beautiful weather and being just over a block from all the excitement and activity of Pleasure Point, who stayed inside! The cottage was comfortable and we had enough room for the clothing we brought. The bed was comfortable and the cottage stayed nice and warm. The kitchen was just right for one person to cook. For a whole month, a little more room would be nice. But the proximity to the water can't be beaten for the price. It was nice having our pleasant landlady, Annie, right next door.

Owner's reply:

Chuck and Judy, you are such gracious guests. It was wonderful having you stay at the cottage and the neighborhood loved you as well. I look forward to your return next January.

Pleasant stay

It was perfect accommodations for me and my 2 dogs. It was a great size and the hot tub is definitely a big seller. It's a stone's throw away from the beach, so if you're into going it's not a long walk at all. I think I'd stay here again.

My wife and I stayed a week at the cottage and absolutely loved the location. The short walk to Pleasure Point beach area and The Point market is fantastic. 41st Ave is also super close for checking out all things surf related. Make sure you eat at the Cliff Cafe!, great food and friendly service too. We rolled down into Capitola for great food and bev. (good happy hour options). The cottage is equipped with everything you need to cook your own meals. The bed was comfortable and we especially enjoyed the hot tub (just watch your step!), Having a surfboard and bicycles available was great and saved us money by not having to rent either of those. We loved the East Side of SC ... Annie was out of the Country during our stay but was available via email and responded to a quick question we had about the WiFi. Sorry we were not able to meet her this time!

Annie Allegretti

Owner's reply:

Kris and Merri- I hope you make it back again. You sound like a lot if fun. I love all of Santa Cruz but the Eastside is the best. Such a sweet community at Pleasure Point. And you went to Cliff Cafe! Yummmm. Happy trails and come on back!

Cozy, comfortable, clean and convenient!

I stayed for a month here, and really enjoyed myself! The cottage has everything you could need, and also has a cozy feel. It was a dream to wake up every day and surf in the back yard! Annie is super accomodating and friendly, and the whole neighborhood has a great vibe. Great stay!

garden cottage

Wonderful place to stay with all the comforts of home. Give me a king size bed and stall shower and I am happy. Location is perfect for nature lovers and yet close village and city.

Puppy Perfect Vacation!!!

This was the perfect vacation for our family! The cottage was the perfect size, and the location was amazing! Walking distance from the quaint neighbor to the beach!!! There was perfect trails to walk the dogs on! We sat in the wonderful Hot Tub every night, after a day at the beach, or walking the dogs on the trail! Annie was the perfect hostess! Making sure we had everything we needed, as well as making sure we were able to get where we needed to go! My only complaint is that we had to leave, after such a relaxing, mellow time! I hope that we can return soon!

Great location!

We loved being a short walk from the beach and we were so glad we could bring our dog! The hot tub was wonderful. The cottage is a little smaller than we expected, but it worked out fine. It has the definite funky Santa Cruz feel. We really enjoyed our visit. Thanks!

Cozy and comfortable

Stayed two rainy nights and couldn't be more cozy. Nice little private hot tub & good kitchen with dining nook for 2. We will be back, for sure.

As comfortable as being at home!

My husband and I felt at home in this wonderful little cottage. It was just the right size for the two of us and our dog, Frosty. Annie made us welcome and was there for us when we needed her. We were greeted with fresh roses and a bottle of local wine. I loved the artwork and the decor and being so close to the beach was incredible. A HIGHLY RECOMMENDED GET-A-WAY for anyone who needs rest and relaxation. And if you'd prefer a more active holiday, there are plenty of opportunities for that, too. THANK YOU ANNIE!!!!!

Great place.

"The cottage is adorable, small but that just seems to add to its coziness. You can't beat the location, and annie is the nicest."

Perfect Escape

As a Mom sometimes you just need to get away alone for sanity, sleep, and clarity. This is a great location to so many beach access points and shopping. Clean, cozy and super comfortable. Can't wait to go back.

Marin County, Calif USA

very relaxing

My husband, Butch, and I had a really nice stay at Annie's cute pink cottage. We made sure that we hit the beach twice a day with our dog, Charlie. Even though we live in the bay area and it was a quick trip down to Santa Cruz for us, we felt like we were vacationing a million miles away from home. Thanks Annie we'll see you next time!

Cozy and Convenient

Walking distance to the beach and places to eat. Close quarters, but very convenient.


Oak Park, IL

Quiet and relaxing

Very nice cottage, excellent value for the money. Close to Pebble Beach, Monterey, Carmel. LOVE that there are no hidden fees, extra dog charges, etc, and that the hosts make you feel so at home!

Best 7 days of vacation!

We had a great time! The cottage was quaint and romantic. It suited my husband and I perfectly. Annie gave great references for surfing lessons and an awesome massage therapist. Loved having washer and dryer on site. Enjoyed a family bbq with all amenities provided. Would definitely stay there again.


San Francisco, CA

Serene zen-like perfect get away!

I stayed at the PP Beach Cottage over Memorial Weekend. I met Annie upon arrival and she showed me around and was very helpful. The cottage had recently been updated with new decor and it looked so cute and tranquil. Fresh flowers in several places made the place smell amazing! I brought my two dogs and we all just loved hanging out on the front patio soaking up the sun and watching the passersby. It was so nice to be close to a variety of great beaches. We particularly enjoyed the trail through Moran Lake Park to the beach that allows off leash pups! The hot tub out back under the stars was a great way to end each day after a beach sunset stroll. We will definitely be coming back!!


Oakland, CA

Quiet, peaceful, perfect location

I felt so at home here. It's a great location, just a couple of short blocks to the Pleasure Point beach. Great dog-walking beach is a few blocks away, too. Annie was so generous with suggestions and recommendations of places to eat and visit. I'm looking forward to coming back in June!


Stanford, CA USA

Sweet Spot at Pleasure Point

The moment I walked in the door of the Cottage at Pleasure Point I felt bliss. I appreciated the cleanliness and the well equipped kitchen, but I did not expect fresh flowers. I took full advantage of the private paradise the back patio offered. At night I slipped into the hot tub, gazed at the stars, listened to the ocean, and let all my cares melt. My dog and I enjoyed walking to the beach and Capitola. This sweet spot provided me with everything I needed and wanted for a wonderful vacation.


Berkeley, CA

Magic! Pure magic!

What's not to love? Steps from - in my opinion - the greatest beach in the (continental) US, a hot tub, and a clean, wonderful house. I started missing the place the minute I left. Annie the owner is also totally rad - extremely helpful and laid back. Highly recommended for surfers, families - anyone really.


Hoboken, NJ

Can't wait to come back

The cottage was perfect for enjoying a week of great weather, leisurely cooking and world class surf.

Santa Cruz in September

What a perfect little getaway from San Francisco! We went hiking in the Santa Cruz Mtns in the morning when it was foggy, hit a winery or 2 on our way back, beach in the afternoon- great little place, esp. if you like to grill (bonus points for gas BBQ) and cook - Thanks Annie!

Great Vacation!!

Loved the little beach cottage. It reminded me of my apartment back in Ocean Grove, NJ. My sister and I had a great time!! Thx for everything!!

Tina Milliken

Oakland, CA

Great Beach Cottage!

We loved this little cottage and the neighborhood was great - Close to the beach, Whole Foods and Capitola. We had our six year old daughter and it was great that we could use the bikes and only had to bring hers with us. We can't wait to come back!


SF Bay area, CA

great getaway.

We stayed at this place with our 2 year old daughter. It was both romantic and fun for my kid. Walking distance from the beach, and really close to all the fun places. But thing we loved most was the careful attention to detail that the owner had paid to make the place cozy and homely.

Beejay Valenzuela


We love this place!

This place got whatever you need and close to everything. Also very clean and beautiful. It is simply perfect! We are looking forward on staying here longer next time. =) Thanks again Annie for letting us stay here and we definitely had a wonderful time there. Valenzuela family


San Francisco, CA

Perfect Escape Cottage

The Pleasure Point Beach Cottage is great. Everything you'll need for the classic Santa Cruz experience is close by. A quick walk down the block and you're on East Cliff with multiple surf spots to choose from. A short bike ride on the beach cruiser (that's included) and you're on 41st ave where you'll find great coffee, food, and shopping. And just a bit further down the road is the cute little town of Capitola. All that without even getting into my car. The property itself is a very cute and clean cottage, perfect for a weekend, or a week of the slow life. It was great to have a stocked kitchen which let me cook up a yummy dinner. I had such a good time I'm counting the days until I can return to PPBC.
