CAPITOLA CREEKSIDE COTTAGE! OFF-SEASON RATES APPLY

Capitola House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Along the creek, Ideally sleeps 4. 6 at most

This charming and cottage has only been available during the off season for 2 years! Take advantage of these great seasonal rates!

This cozy historic 2 bedroom 1 bath riverfront cottage is located in the heart of the Capitola Village. You can enjoy this peaceful habitat setting, relaxing in the most spacious yard, or on the deck overlooking the coastal wildlife along the banks of Soquel Creek. Certainly walking a two-minute trail stroll to Capitola’s most popular beach, wharf, shopping, bars & restaurants is an option as well. This newly renovated and furnished beach cottage is in an ideal location and provides the perfect retreat for a family or friends.

This sweet craftsman is in the shape of a duplex now that does share 1 wall and the front patio. However, it has not lost it's original and historic charm. To whom will you be sharing the wall with? Well, a very nice tenant who has complete understanding that we rent our side unit during the summer. The tenant keeps to themselves and you may see a glimpse of him/her coming and going. Situated in the Riverview Terrace neighborhood, you will feel like you have a very private setting. We have been renting for numerous years now and have yet to have any issues with this arrangement.

This is a great place for a couple or small family that want to enjoy this great little village without hassle! Relax on the deck with a drink overlooking the creek. Cuddle up with your honey or with your loved ones while taking in the smells and sounds of this coastal riperian corridor.

I very much enjoy living in Capitola for it has much to offer. There are sandy beaches to walk on, surfing and fishing in the ocean, and hiking and biking in nearby forests.

Being a general contractor means working outside a lot. This area has some fog in the summer months, that really makes for a comfortable climate. I like to build and work on homes. More recently, I have built a number of decks and fences using redwood and bamboo harvested sustainably from the Santa Cruz area.

One thing I hear about Capitola that holds truth, 'Once you come here, you will always come back.'

Robin Wirth purchased this house in 1976

Capitola is a great place to live along the coast . In only a little over an hour by car and you can be in San Francisco or Monterrey/Carmel.

Being within walking distance of the beach has ethereal advantages. There is nothing else like the sounds of the waves lapping or crashing along the shoreline. There always seems to be an influx of aquatic life that beckons into this bay's region during the summer months. Whale watching and fishing has been epic in recent years and is just a walk to the wharf and a boat ride away.

I like to think that the beach is close enough to enjoy the excitement, yet far enough away when it is time for quietude.

This craftsman home is the first house to be built along Soquel Creek. The view across the creek makes you feel like you are in the forest, yet the ocean is also visable beneath the train trestle and Stockton bridges.

Far enough away from the traffic, there is a subtle peacefulness. Some large trees provide shade. There is a spacious driveway for parking and large creek side yard with a redwood deck and benches for relaxing.

Being along the creek allows viewing of a wide variety of waterfowl. The beach is within a two-minute walk along a foot path that provides a straight shot to the beach.

This little cottage has all the comforts of home, only better! I surfed each morning, enjoyed great meals along the Esplanade and my husband joined in on a blues jam Sunday night at the Fog Bank bar. A perfect "staycation" for us. I look forward to staying in this darling cottage along the Soquel river.

My family of 4 (2 adults and kids aged 6 & 3) enjoyed a fantastic long weekend at this lovely home. The home is perfectly located on a quiet street on the river that offers tranquil mornings views of the water fowl. It's also within a 5 minute walk to the main beach which is ideal. We were able to visit Monterey one day and Santa Cruz another. The owner was very responsive and accommodating. We would definitely stay here again and have already recommended it to all our friends. Thank you for a wonderful getaway!

This was our 2nd time at this rental - this time with our 4 and 8yo kids. They loved looking at the creek and birds! We love the charm of this place, it's walkability to Capitola, and the slower pace. The 2 bedrooms are just enough room to relax, and the combination kitchen/living room is great for quality time. We've also appreciated getting to know Dan, the owner who lives in the other side of this duplex. If you're looking for relaxation, natural beauty, and leaving the car in the driveway, this should be on your list.

Capitola Dream Cottage

I stay in this cottage whenever I visit Capitola Village and I always have the nicest time. The cottage offers the best of both worlds. Not only is it steps away from the Village and Capitola beach, but the idyllic setting along the creek, teeming with wildlife, is the perfect spot for nature lovers. The sunny, private deck on the bank of the Soquel Creek is an ideal location for bird watching, while enjoying a morning coffee or an evening glass of wine. The interior of the cottage is just as lovely as the exterior and has been freshly remodeled with a light and airy feel. The cottage is well-equipped with all the modern amenities and the beds are comfortable too. Next time you are planning a trip to Capitola be sure to book this memorable place where the river meets the sea. You will be happy you did!

Great little getaway

Spent the weekend with my daughter, her best friend and sister for a girls weekend. I am so glad I found this gem. The location was excellent with everything just steps away, literally no need to drive once you arrive. The beach, restaurant and shops less than a 5 minute walk. The dock area just out back was heaven. It really felt like life slowed down. Everything was very clean and well maintained. I also met the manager Dan who was so helpful. My sister dropped her ring between the boards of dock and he was so kind to grab his drill and pull up the boards to retrieve the ring. Yeah!!! I will definitely be coming back again. Thanks Dan for an awesome weekend.

Owner's Response: Hi Linda, so glad you enjoyed your stay and we appreciate your fond review. Grateful to oblige retrieving the ring!
