Sitting on the front porch was fantastic and the easy walk to town was appreciated. Three wishes for the interior: More natural light (sky lights/light tubes would be lovely), reading lamps by the couch (it was just a little too dark for these old eyes), and towel racks in the bathroom.
La Sirena was a perfect location to see Capitola and Santa Cruz. Comfortable, well appointed, and situated in a gorgeous neighborhood... it was convenient to local stores and restaurants.
Because it was in walking distance of the beach, it a marvelous opportunity for a family with small children to enjoy the fabulous ocean views. The owners provided a well stocked kitchen (with coffee beans for fresh coffee) and handsomely decorated living room and family room. They also had beach chairs and bicycles which were greatly appreciated. The house has a lovely backyard garden filled with flowers! We would definitely stay again. We have already recommended it to all our family and friends.
