About Michelle Murphy

We fell in love with Capitola the first time we visited.

It is such a wonderful beach town, the perfect mix of sun, sand, shopping and dining. Everything you need or want is steps away. Sometimes we visit, and never get in our car. Other times, we take the kids to the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, to famous surf spots...or visit antique shops in Soquel! We think it's the perfect spot to get away for a romantic weekend, or to enjoy with family and friends!

Michelle Murphy purchased this house in 2012

Delightful Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our multi-generational group of ten girls really loved your Capitola rental. Our group enjoyed relaxing at the house, playing at the beach, and walking two blocks downtown to explore the shops, restaurants and nightlife. The location is really perfect, the beds were comfy, the decor is fabulous - we enjoyed the indoor and outdoor space, and the kitchen was well stocked for our large group. We all agreed it was the perfect getaway home for a sunny January weekend.The only problem is we wished we had a couple more days! Thank you for sharing your home. We hope to return again some day ...

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from the most amazing family vacation in Capitola. It was absolutely perfect for all ages. There was so so much room for all of us here with two living rooms, open plan kitchen, great backyard (with extremely comfortable outdoor chairs) and enough beds to sleep all 7 of us comfortably.

I had the pleasure of sleeping upstairs in the very cool attic room in a bunk bed with my daughter. I can't recall ever sleeping in a bunk bed as an adult, but it was great fun. Prior to arriving I had read the previous review about the bunk beds not being comfortable, but I have to strongly disagree. The mattresses were great, the bedding was very nice with fluffy duvets and pillows. I slept really well here each night so would highly recommend anyone looking to recreate their childhood to try sleeping upstairs!

Also, as a side note for anyone with toddlers, there is a full length pocket door at the bottom of the stairs going up to the attic room so you don't have to worry about your little one running up the stairs when your back is turned!

There were nice touches everyone around the house so it had a nice at home feeling, like you were visiting a friend's house, not staying in a rental. Plenty of dishes, cups, etc. Yes, there is no dishwasher, but we all just took turns doing the dishes, certainly not a big deal. There were plenty of pots, pans, utensils, baking dishes, etc - more than you'd ever need.

The best part about this house was the location. A quick 2 minute stroll to the village and the beach and with 3 kids in tow, that just made our vacation. No packing up cars and looking for parking every time you want to go to the beach. Parking around the house is tight, but that's normal for any beach town. And there is a lot more parking here than you'd find in a city! It's not modern suburbia, but that's the charm of the village. It's a quick walk from wherever you park your car.

I visit the Capitola/ Santa Cruz Area several times a year and this is by far my favorite place to stay. Michelle (the owner) was so great to work with as well! I would highly recommend it to anyone thinking about a stay here and I am already trying to decide on a date when I get to return again!

Fabulous Location, Great for Families

  • 4 of 5

This charming little beach house is perfectly situated in Capitola Village, super close to shopping, restaurants and the beach. Our group really enjoyed dining outside in the fenced backyard and strolling around the village area. The house decor felt very clean and fresh. The owner was supper attentive, and worked hard to make sure we had a pleasant stay.

On the downside, parking is a nightmare in this area. One residential parking permit is provided with the rental, but even with a permit it can be challenging to find a spot. With two cars, we had to park one car out of the neighborhood about a 10-min walk away from the house. The other disappointment was the bedding in the upstairs area. We had 6 adults, and the 4 that slept upstairs all bemoaned the uncomfortable beds. Bunk beds and futons are probably great for kids....not so much for adults. Addition of a dishwasher in the kitchen would be a welcome improvement!

All in all, we had a good stay. The location can't be beat. Fun area, cute house, great vacation.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay! The annual "Wharf to Wharf" Race brings 16,000 runners, plus friends and families to Capitola-- a super fun event, but made parking more challenging for you. Monday thru Friday you can park without a permit on San Jose right across the street from our house. And, for weekends there are 2 paid lots 1-3 blocks away. We have 2 new Queen beds in the house, and a new Queen futon. I haven't slept in the bunkbeds (typically it's just kids!)... but based on your feedback, I will be happy to purchase new mattresses for them. We want everyone to have a good night's sleep!

Perfect Beach Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this fabulous cottage in October when we had family visiting from overseas and wanted to show them Capitola. There were 4 adults and 2 children and there was more than enough room for us all. The kids (aged 6 and 8) loved having their own space upstairs and having them upstairs allowed us adults to watch TV and sit around chatting in the evenings without having to worry about disturbing the kids. It also worked in reverse in the mornings when the kids were happy to hang out in the bunk beds and watch cable TV until a everyone was up and about.

The cottage is beautifully appointed with comfy couches to curl up on and read a book or sit around the fireplace on a chilly evening while chatting. The beds were all very comfy and we slept like babies! Kids included! My favorite was definitely the outdoor patio. A real sun-trap and ideal for relaxing in the sun in comfort on the lovely patio furntiure! The outdoor shower was also fantastic when returning from the beach with sandy kids! Quick rinse off outside before heading indoors and no more sand getting thru the whole place! Magic!

The cottage is a short 2 block or 5 minute stroll to the beach and around 3 minutes to the shops and restaurants. Absolutely the BEST location. Parking was relatively easy - on one occasion we had to park a block away but were able to move the car to right outside later that evening. Not really an issue at all!

The owner was fabulous to deal with. She was prompt at replying to our initial enquiry and subsequent communication. And our security deposit was returned within days.

We had the best weekend away staying at this delightful cottage. As perfect a beach cottage as you could imagine. Stay here...you will not be disappointed! We cannot wait to come back. Thank you Michelle!!!

Outstanding home & Location Location Location

  • 5 of 5

We had the best vacation staying in this home. The location is absolutely amazing!!! Literally 2 blocks from the beach and 1/2 block from the adorable town.

The house is gorgeous, totally immaculate, and has everything you need.

Outdoor hot shower, gorgeous patio, fireplace, and plenty of room for everyone.

The kids bunk room was a huge hit and they even had movies for the kids to watch at night. That was great for all :)

We would wake up and have our morning coffee in the sunroom. The kids bunk area is upstairs so you could have plenty of quiet time until they woke up.

The house was very big and it was nice to be able to sit and read in one room and have everyone else in the various rooms in the house.

The beds were so comfortable and made for a great night of sleep.

I can't say enough about the location. We would go to the beach and run home to make sandwiches and come right back. 2 minute walk into town and the beach.

We would absolutely rent here again!!!
