Embrace a luxurious and whimsical lifestyle with your first step into the Famous and Historic Windmill Silo Beach Property!
Completely updated and restored to have function yet uniqueness for owners children, friends and family in an unbelievable playful setting. Custom designed touches and color are everywhere – both homes are totally unique! The Windmill kitchen sports tangerine orange cement countertops with stainless steal cabinets. The Silo kitchen keeps pace with zince counter tops and copper nails that set off the amazing colorful textured backsplash made from recycled San Francisco bus stop glass! Since the rooms are at different angles, the cabinets and beds had to be custom built. There is a surprise in every room - from the converted 1950's orange vintage refrigerator to the under lit glass bathroom sink; the list goes on! Creativity and imagination on the part of the owner and local craftsmen made it all work. The colors are bright, the décor is playful; the entire property has been customized as a perfect vacation spot for fun loving couples or families.
The Windmill House consists of two separate windmill tower homes that share the common yard, patio, putting green, hot tub, 2 outdoor showers and large porch with built in barbecue and fire pit that overhangs the Soquel Creek. This set up is ideal for families or close friends with children. The main floor of the back house has a beautifully remodeled kitchen, living room, full bathroom and the 1st bedroom which features a custom built Murphy Queen bed. The stairs leading up the windmill tower take you to a large porch with comfortable seating area and on to the 2nd bedroom with Queen Bed and half bath (view looking out to the creek and trestle). Then, on up to the highest part of the windmill and the 3rd bedroom. This room is like Peter Pan’s getaway! Custom bunk bed for 3 kids, flat screen TV and view from the top!
The second home, which is adjacent to the first, has a similar floor plan. The main floor has been totally remodeled with a full bathroom, custom Murphy Queen Bed, large living room with electric fireplace, flat screen TV, laundry room, uniquely designed kitchen and appliances and state-of-the-art stereo/surround sound for indoor and outdoor enjoyment. This isn't just any state of the art surround sound, it's called Apple TV, which gives you access to endless entertainment that reaches the entire property! As you make your way up the windmill tower, you will come to the 1st bedroom with one single bed and sink area. Going further up the windmill, you will find the 2nd bedroom with one single bed and a very cool and incognito urinal for the gentleman. Finally, at the top of the tower is another kid’s “lounge” area with bean bags, flat screen TV and views from the top! Kids LOVE it!
Most importantly, the Windmill house sits on the secluded and charming River Path of the Soquel Creek just steps from the famous Capitola Village and beach. You and your company can enjoy the sunset and creek-side wildlife from your private porch while you barbecue and the kids roast marshmallows over the fire pit. The custom made screen is easily accessed but safe for children. The sitting area around the fire pit is made out of stone which warms up with the fire and keeps everyone cozy while stories and laughter abound.
This home has it all! Fully furnished and richly decorated! All bed and bath linens are included as well as the essentials; toilet paper, paper towels, hand/dish soap etc. Just bring you and your loved ones and ENJOY!

It was loads of fun designing something totally different and out of the box. It is the beach after all!!
We live locally and rented this house to celebrate my birthday. We all just kept declaring, "This is perfect". It is such a special place. You can't beat the location: situated right on the river with a very short walk to Capitola Village and to the beach. We thoroughly enjoyed everything the place had to offer; ping pong, hot tub, peddle boat, BBQ, and of course the large deck. It was a perfect place for kids, as there was so much for them to do!
Pictures just don't do it justice, there are so many interesting and colorful details that you are constantly surprised to notice fun little touches everywhere you look. All of the appliances and kitchen items are high-end brands. There is so much space that it accommodated our group of 10 very well. My son just couldn't decide where he wanted to sleep because every room is so unique!
There was also the personal touches of the tour, a scone delivery and the gift basket which made us feel even more pampered. Even though we were just 10 minutes from home, we felt as if we were on a resort vacation. We will definitely be back!
This is the third year we have stayed at this property. It is truly AMAZING!! The location is perfect. You can walk to the beach, restaurants, and shopping. Private deck is perfect for dinning, water fun and there is a beautiful fire pit for making smores. The interior is a must see! Our kids love this property and utilize the ping pong, golf and hot tub every day! The property manager, Rose, is a delight and helps to make our vacation experience a pleasure.
This is a unique, wonderful, and welcoming property with great views, features, and atmosphere! This place was better than what the pictures show. Beautiful place, comfortable sleeping arrangements. Awesome jacuzzi. We had a great time and will go back again in future. Highly recommend this place to anybody looking to relax and have a good time!
We love visiting Capitola and when we found this amazing house on VRBO we decided we had to stay. With two sets of grandparents and our family of four we were all so comfortable. We read, visited, ate and BBQ'd on the wonderful patio. Enjoyed 'smores and stars around the fire pit. Between both kitchens we lacked for nothing. The whimsical decor was enchanting and inspiring. As we were driving away we were planning our next stay! Can't wait!
This is the second time my family and I rented "the red house." (named by a six year old)
This property has two fun kitchens and we used them both. It is fully equipped with dishes and utensils. We enjoy eating outside on the deck. The deck also serves as a place to gather around wine time. The hot tub is a swell way to end the day! It is such a cool place to stay.
We had six couples (luckily all very close friends sharing the two full bathrooms!) spend a wonderful three day weekend here. We just could not get over how fun the decor was! Beds were very comfy and we were easily able to cook all of our meals in the two kitchens. We spent most of our time out on the deck, and the fire pit allowed us to stay out for the chilly evenings as well. The hot tub was a great place to relax after a walk through the village or sitting on the beach. We loved how close (literally a couple of minutes walking along the path) the village was. (This made it very easy to indulge in Pizza my Heart for snacks!) Compared to many vrbo's I've stayed at, this one was much more "upscale" in furnishings and comfort. Thanks!
