A group of girlfriends and I rented this home for a moms weekend get away. The house hosted 8 of us very well. Our most favorite part of the home is the outdoor area, and this is where we spent most of our time. We enjoyed the ocean and lagoon views. We also loved the proximity to the ocean. Gabreal, the owner, was VERY responsive to us, and he noted a few suggestions we had as well. The inside of the home is not updated, but is comfortable. The backyard could use a little loving, but our time was spent in the front patio area anyway. It was only a 2.5 mile walk one way to Capitola, so this was an added plus. The home was very quiet. If you don't care about having granite counter tops, then this place is for you. The home overall and the second bathroom are small, but we didn't care. The 3 bedrooms and the living room couches/fold out beds suited us just fine.
