We are also 4 homes away from our second beach, Moran State Beach, which has sand access right to the street should there be a high tide or sand loss in front of the home. This access is also recommended for small children or the elderly, rather then the stairs through the rocks in front of the home.

Enjoy world class surfing at Pleasure Point and WindanSea surf breaks right out front (we offer surf boards), or relax on the huge oceanside deck or the second story master suite deck, BBQ and watch the surfers, sailboats, seals on the rock, otters, dolphins, pelicans and ocean activity. Take a bike ride (bikes are available) or stroll to Capitola along the beach front bike path.

Enjoy numerous quality restaurants and nearby night life. Very close to the Harbor for dining and fishing.

We have 3 King Beds and 1 Queen, one bedroom is detached through the courtyard for privacy, 3 bathrooms. Hot/cold tropical outdoor shower!

Smart TV & Blue Ray/ DVD (in Living Room & Master Suite), TV in every bedroom, IPOD/IPAD connection to Living Room Stereo, IPOD connection in Master Suite, Water Filtration System throughout home!

We had such a great time at this house! The house is beautiful and the views are amazing. The owners supplied everything necessary to make us feel right at home. The location is perfect and the we loved the sound of the waves crashing on the rocks. We will definitely be back!

Ocean sounds and views for days and days

  • 5 of 5

This home has charm and one of the most gorgeous views of the Pacific Ocean. It was simple getting into the house, following instructions of the house (like using Netflix, etc.) and checking out. The little communication needed with the Owner was very pleasant. I would definitely recommend this as a nice peaceful vacation home that is also close to town.

Best Vacation Home !!!

  • 5 of 5

I was fortunate to rent this home for the first two weeks of August. Our family is from Boston so the ability to do a Friday check-in resulted in lower airfare. In the days leading up to our visit I had some questions, of which the owners' pre-arrival information was so helpful and quick responses to emails as well. The house is even better than the photos illustrate, the home comes so well stocked so you don't immediately have to spend your time in the stores, there are even surf boards, bikes, beach toys and chairs all available which makes it such an easy rental for people flying in. We found the house immaculate upon our arrival the departure easy as the owners take care of a signficant amount of cleaning so you can relax.

If spending your days watching whales, dolphins and sea lions from deck is appealing, then this is your house!

Perfect vacation house for all ages!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this beautiful beach house with seven adults and two children, ranging in ages from 3 to 91. The beach was an easy walk four houses down and used daily by the grandkids. We spent a good majority of our time out on the huge deck with the long bench, watching surfers, sea otters, boats of all kinds, porpoises, and even spotting some whales spouting. The sunsets were beautiful. My husband and I especially enjoyed the separate bedroom and bath suite. The main floor was easy for my 91 year old Mother to have access to her bedroom, bathroom, living room, kitchen and deck without any stairs. We love to cook and the kitchen and island was great for all of our meals and we loved the long wooden dining room table and bench seats. Tara is very pleasant and easy to work with. We all agreed we want to come back again.

Spent another great week at this property. It gets better every year. Fantastic deck with brand new bbq. Latest audio and video equipment. Plenty of towels, dishes, cookware, etc. plenty of room for everyone. Last but not least is the master suite upstairs and private.
