Here are two precious poems by twin 9 year old girls while staying at Dolphinwatch -
Listen, by Paris B
Bolting, crashing, smashing, dipping, coming in and coming out, it pauses and starts again, like fireworks and granades, you can hear it roar, it's trying to tell you something but you aren't listening, the ocean is calling to you . . .
Ocean Blue, by Olivia B
light blue horizon can touch the gentle waves crashing on the shore will make it go astray touching every creature moving in its path better not get too close or it will go crash
Ocean Blue bright as dew birds skimming and looking for fish, fish jumping, seals swimming, all in its path
guest book comment 06/06: every time I looked out over the fabulous view from my place on the chaise, or relaxed on blankets on each bed, or watched my sister floating happily in the hot tub, I kept hearing Humphrey Bogart's voice echoing in my head, saying wistfully 'the stuff that dreams are made of.' And he was right this place seems to have materialized out of a dream . . .
We are retired, Bruce - a surgeon and Pam, an RN nurse/100ton USCG master mariner, kiteboarder - bought a beach shack 25 yrs ago and rebuilt. When we are offshore sailing, kiteboarding or diving we let our special home so others can experience its magic.
We, of course, are often at this magnificent property ourselves which is why it is often not available. We hope you enjoy this special paradise as much as we do. Thank you for your interest.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this home! The views are amazing, the beds comfortable, and the kitchen well stocked! We were planning to eat out most nights, but ended up eating in because we wanted to relax and enjoy the views. We saw dolphins, whales and sea otters. We traveled with our three teenagers, and it was perfect! The house is a short walk to a beach that is not crowded at all. Surf lessons at Capitola Beach Company were a huge hit! And the drive to the Monterey Bay Aquarium was very easy. Thanks for helping make our vacation memorable!
What a treat, big girls weekend and we thought we would be going out everyday and night. Nope, had great walks down to the beach and along the beach, great patio to sit and bake in the sun, cocktails.......why leave, cooked everything right there in the lovely kitchen, never left until we were forced to by the check out time. Plan to make this an annual trip to this location! Maybe next time we will cruise around Capitola. Accommodations were excellent!
I rented this beautiful home as a surprise for my husband's 50th. The views are simply breathtaking from this home. You feel as though you are on the edge of the earth/ocean! We had one other family stay w/ us and there was plenty of space. The house is very comfortable and when the weather is calm there is no place else to be but on the deck by the fire pit. Lots of privacy, yet a short drive to any needed amenities. Short walk to the beach.
Our dog enjoyed it too.
Plenty of towels for showers/beach going. Be sure to bring your own soap etc for showering. Kitchen had plenty of cutting boards, glasses, plates and silverware...though we never found the pepper. All in all a wonderful spot. I am a little bummed as I was checking for some availability in the coming weeks and it's booked...the secret must be out!
We had been planning an immediate family reunion over Thanksgiving and I was concerned my high expectations might get dashed. The property manager's communication with us and her coordination of our arrival was flawless. As soon as we pulled up, every concern melted away. The listing is modest...This house is beautifully decorated inside and out. Every space is thoughtfully designed, every area comfortably furnished. The kitchen was perfectly equipped to roast our turkey and serve our holiday dinner. The ocean views and crashing waves invited relaxation and serenity. We watched dolphins play and pelicans dive all four days, as well as deer grazing in the evening. Our reunion was amazing, and our expectations were definitely exceeded.
A great home, amazing view, awesome and convenient location!! Very comfortable bedding and plenty of room for our family group of 4 adults and 3 children. Coffee in the morning on the deck overlooking the beach and Monterrey Bay, and wine by the firepit and hottub at night, unbeatable sunsets...we were lucky to have beautiful dry weather during our week so were able to take advantage of all the outdoor space. Very quiet, felt safe and private. When we first arrived, there was a group of deer in the side yard, so cool! Thank you and we would certainly enjoy staying at this home again on future trips.
This home was so amazing .. I can't say enough to describe the beauty inside and out. I booked this place with several friends that where all In need of a much deserved break. We almost never left the house but for dinner at shadow Brook( also amazing) .. We sat all day watching the ocean ,Dolphins and sweeping views ! I could have stayed for ever.. I will defiantly will return.. Thank you for sharing your amazing house!
