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!

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!

Six of us, representing three generations of our family, loved this comfortable, light and cheery, attractive accommodation in the heart of Capitola. It is well outfitted, clean and relaxing. Great back yard!

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!!!

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!!!

Capitola Cottage

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this cottage while in town for several days for my brother's wedding. It was an absolute delight! The house was wonderfully appointed -- perfect for me, my husband, our children and my mother -- with room to spare! The back patio was especially nice! And the beach is just two blocks away and there are tons of cute shops and restaurants within walking distance.

Perfect Beach Getaway Weekend!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed during the Art and Wine Festival. Three adults and two kids ages 3 1/2 and 6 LOVED our weekend in Capitola. The weather was perfect and the house is so convenient to downtown and the beach that all you can do is relax and enjoy every minute. The kids loved their upstairs bunk bed room and their Grandma was comfortable on one of the queen size bottom bunks too. Mom and Dad were downstairs able to get some adult time after the kiddos went to bed. The house was perfectly clean and had everything we needed; it is SO cute and has fabulous furnishings too! Such a huge bonus to have a private and safe backyard. We can't wait to go back and bring along another family to share the fun of the house and town again. You can't beat the setting of this house, proximity to the beach and charm of the town of Capitola! Highly recommend!
