We had a wonderful time at your beach house and left you a note (not sure if you got it or not) at the house...
We will definitely return to your lovely home – it was perfect for our family (the spiral staircase was a little tricky though)!
Dolphins every day, owls and hummingbirds all over. Beautiful view, and an agricultural community with fresh produce and fresh water wetlands if you ever feel like leaving the cottage (which you probably won't).
We absolutely loved the cottage and neighborhood. Quirky and comfortable. I agree with other posters that the spiral staircase was a challenge, my dog and I took the outside stairs. The hike back up from the beach is not for the faint of heart. But having the beach virtually to ourselves was priceless. The house had everything we needed and as long as you don't have more than two small cars, parking is not an issue. We loved our stay!
Great place! Great access to the beach and beach views! We loved our stay and would love to go back.
Can't put into words how perfect the Dolphin house was for our stay. A group of friends and I needed a getaway from the city, and were enthralled with the Dolphin house. Everything we needed was there, even binoculars when we spotted whales. The views were absolutely stunning, and we spent one morning curled up in the living room, drinking coffee, listening to music, and appreciating the stunning view. We drove down to Elkhorn Slough and kayaked with otters in the afternoon, and returned to the Dolphin house to make dinner and enjoy the hot tub. The walk to the beach was easy, we started and ended each day there. Katie was so wonderful about communicating before and during our stay, and we can't wait to come back to this place!
The location is fabulous. On a clifftop with a full and clear view of the ocean from the balcony. Spectacular sunsets to pass evening time and watch dolphins quite close to shore--all from the balcony. The beach access is a challenge for older people but at the entrance into the development there is a short path which is a breeze. Walk 10 to get there, or drive, both ok. Forget the steep steps from the house itself. The beach is just beautiful and not heavy traffic.
The property is two levels with downstairs accessed from a very narrow staircase from inside---but can also be accessed from street level. Hot tub and barbecue are at this lower level. Would prefer barbecue at same level as kitchen but did not use it anyway. Kitchen is very well equipped--maybe too well and scope for reducing the amount of crockery and pans and silverware just so it is more streamlined. Minor point.
Only reason for 4 stars is property requires to be refreshed a bit. The upstairs bedroom and bathroom could use some refurb. The living room / family room area is just fine and v comfortable with a smart TV. Internet is erratic but this is the kind of place to take a break from connecting. The main sleeping area downstairs is pretty much okay.
We had a most enjoyable thanksgiving vacation here. The location and views overrides any small issues---it would immediately revert to 5 stars with minor improvements. We certainly mean to go back to this rental regardless---as this is one of the few excellent places to accept pets.
Overall 4 stars but 5 thumbs up---whatever that may mean!!
Loved the Dolphin house! It was just what we were looking for! Awesome views, beach to ourselves, comfortable home. Town was not as far away as some reviews made it sound. We headed in one night to grab Sushi to go - maybe a 10 minute drive. We saw maybe 6 people on the beach all weekend. Yes it is 166 steps down to the beach but if our 4 year old can do it so can you! Very short drive to Capitola so do a little shopping before grabbing lunch. We will definitely be back!
