What a wonderful place! This is not a typical vacation rental. This home has so many upgrades that are not listed on the webpage... like high-end appliances, TV’s and stereo system. The pictures do not do it justice! The prime location made it easy for my family to kick back and enjoy themselves while others hit the local attractions. If you’re looking for family fun, this rental is packed with games for toddlers all the way up to adults. The male travelers will enjoy the high-tech flat screen TV's in the bedrooms and living spaces. There is a small market/convenience store, restaurant, brewing company, coffee house, bar etc ALL WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE...not to mention the beach at the end of the street! We stopped by the museum on our walk back to the rental. My 4 yr old granddaughter enjoyed the museum (walking distance), beach, and wild life. There we pelicans, sea gulls, song birds and dogs of all sizes...we even saw a skunk walk down the middle of the street as if it were heading off to a day at the beach. Women and teens will love shopping at Pacific Garden Mall (Garden St) where there are benches for the men to hang out (people watching) while they are waiting. Make sure to add the Boardwalk to your “to do” list. If you are eating healthy, or simply looking for a market, there are 2 Trader Joe’s locations within two miles. This place is a small slice of heaven hidden on a busy "foot traffic" street. What a super price for what you get...a true bargain...better than the local hotels, plus ample space!!!Oh, last but definitely NOT least...the owners were absolutely "bend-over backwards terrific" about our last-minute travel arrangements. They worked with us via phone and email to make this spur of the moment vacation happen. Great people and a great home!Tip- if you are traveling with kids, make sure to bring a kite! Make a point to visit near-by Capitola, you won't be sorry!
