Surfers Paradise

Review submitted: September 5, 2012   Date of arrival: August 26, 2012

Bucks Beach Bungalow was everything we were looking for. It is a great place to stay, seconds away from some of the best surf in the nation – this is the spot!
If you want to surf, or learn to surf, call ED at ClubEd.
Recommended by Buck, Ed was a fantastic surf instructor. We ended up in the water surfing for
4 days only having to walk our boards seconds to the coast.
The Begonia Festival was so much fun. We rode Buck’s bikes into Capitola and back a few times!
After a long day of surfing the amazing hot tub was just the relaxation we needed.
Fun Things We Did:
Seabright Brewery
Crows Nest patio
Naka Sushi (wonderful spot for authentic amazing sushi)
BBQ on BBB patio
Shoppers corner grocery Store – a local gem full of great produce and fresh seafood ready to grill
Club Ed Surf lessons – a friend and wonderful surf instructor
O’Neil Surf Shop – support the local heritage of O’Neil legend
The Boardwalk! So much fun!! Roller coaster, walked up the wharf and saw lounging sea lions
Can’t wait to get a Trader Joes in Austin! What a great store.
All in All the location, the info and advice given by Judith and Buck made this little getaway the perfect combination of relaxing local surf culture, a plethora of fun activities like foosball and b8iking the coast, with day trips to the Santa Cruz mountains and Monterey less than an hour away! Can’t beat it.
Made new friends we can wait to come visit again next summer.
Thanks you Bucks!
P.S. We really like checking out all the great mementos you have collected over the years in the Bungalow. It was actually quite educational as well as fun! Very much appreciate you letting us landlocked folks partake in the great surf culture this truly special place in the USA has to offer.
Santa Cruz is a special place, truly unique, vibrant and beautiful!

Review submitted: December 4, 2013   Date of arrival: November 19, 2013

Looking for a great place to stay? Triple B is the place!!! Bucks Beach Bungalow has it all. It's my 4th time at Buck and Judith's cottage at Pleasure Point. And here's why we love it.. Only a block from the beach.. Sit on the new front deck each morning and enjoy coffee while hearing the ocean waves crashing and sea lions barking.. Sneak away for a romantic walk on the beach in the moonlight... Ate lots of Pleasure Point Pizza... Watched the movie The Maverick it was one of Bucks suggestions a local surfer movie... Relaxed in the killer hot tub w a cocktail....grab some fresh crabs from Stagnero Bros on the wharf and local wine for an amazing dinner....kick back to the groovy sounds of KPiG radio... And of course watch nightly outrageous sunset with the ones you love!! See you in the flip side Buck n Judith

Bucks Beach Bungalow is heaven! ***** 5 Stars

Review submitted: November 22, 2013   Date of arrival: September 3, 2013

Dear Buck & Judith,

What a most wonderful surprise to end up in your little piece of the world. You really have done everything to make it heaven. Our favorites include:
The Temper-pedic bed
The Hot Tub! On starry nights.
Pefect dog-feng-shui, with the back yard, front deck and doggy door
Great movies!
Great surf boards!
It turns out the person who complimented the Pearson Arrow was Frosty Hesson himself! We didn't realize it until after we watched your dvd "Chasing Mavericks" movie.
This Bungalow was so fabulous for us - we felt like we were on vacation, rather than escaping wildfires. It made work so fun - we'd work via phone or computer until the surfing was good and the sun was high, then feel like escape artists and go surf for an hour.
We can't Thank You enough for your hospitality welcoming spirit and wonderfully outfitted fun-pad. It has great everything, but especially great warmth & comfort.
We can't wait to come back and live like Buck & Judith!
Many Thanks,
Jill, Mike, Jasper and Toby.
