Great quiet getaway spot for 2, or family with small children

This is an awesome place! Pictures accurately depict the studio. The kitchen is fully stocked for in-house cooking. I was able to walk or bike to all amenities in the Pleasure Point area and it was a quick 4 mile drive to downtown and the westside. Easy access to surfing if you are a never-ever or looking for something more advanced. Hallie was very professional, accommodating, and friendly. I would highly recommend staying here!
Nicest thing about this place was the private outdoor garden. The apartment was small but a comfortable place to stay for two people. Hallie was friendly and helpful. Lots of surfing action at the beach at the end of the street.
We had such a wonderful time staying here. Thank you Hallie and company, you could't have been nicer. Fantastic location 11/2 blocks from a spectacularly beautiful part of the California coast. Close to everything one could want, restaurants, shopping sights. Completely private space with a wonderful outside patio. I would recommend it to anyone.
Hallie's place was great for a weekend getaway only a couple blocks from the beach. She was also a great host by letting us borrow beach cruisers, an extra surfboard and check out an hour later so we could get some extra beach time in. She even came through for a last minute request for a blow dryer. It really helped make the weekend easy and relaxing. Would definitely recommend it.
We had a wonderful stay with Hallie in Pleasure Point! The cottage is beautiful, and set up wonderfully for guests as well as located in an amazing neighborhood. Incredibly easy to walk to the Opal Cliffs and an easy bike to Capitola village or twin lakes state park. We would highly recommend staying with Hallie at her pleasure point cottage.
Our family of four had an absolutely awesome time in Santa Cruz and were well served at Hallie's Pleasure Point Cottage. It was especially great that she let us use their beach cruisers, surfboards, and boogie boards! The cottage is located close to the beach -- 2 or 3 blocks to a viewpoint, and a bit further to accessible beaches. It's also within walking distance to 41st Ave (0.6 mi per google maps), where there are stores, coffee shops, etc.
The cottage had almost everything that we needed, and on the 2 occasions that I contacted Hallie for additional items, she was very prompt in providing those supplies.
The hot water is super hot and there's lots of it, so it was easy for the four of us to take sequential showers even while washing dishes (note: that's by hand -- no dishwasher). When it wasn't warm enough to eat outside, we had to make do inside, as there's only indoor seating for two at the counter.
Hallie was friendly & responsive and we'd definitely recommend her place to friends. Ideal for two people, ok for four if you get along well. :o)

About the Host, Hallie
I have lived in Pleasure Point for over twenty years and I love it!! I am very active, and love being a block from the ocean, as well as within biking distance to some epic trail rides in the Santa cruz mountains. I have travelled all over the world, and I always love coming home to my sweet little neighborhood by the beach:)
