This wonderful home in the quaint seaside town of Capitola will remind you of being in a small village in Italy. Brand new Queen bed in one bedroom and a super comfortable double in the 2nd bedroom. Sofa sleeper with thick pillow top in the living room sleeps two.
It has it's own boat dock with your own kayaks and a Canoe to use at your leisure. Or you can lay on the deck and look out onto the beautiful Soquel Creek and observe nature.
Wander down to the beach and enjoy the surf and the sun.
BBQ on the deck and watch the ducks meander by as you sip a glass of wine from one of the local wineries. Or just relax and read your favorite book on the privacy of your own deck.
The lush green surroundings are breathtaking. If you feel the desire for shopping or dining out, the down town and Espanade are only a two minute river walk away.
Enjoy the food and entertainment at the world famous Shadow Brooke Restaurant!

Wonderful Christmas weekend in Capitola! The location is amazing, extremely close to the beach and Capitola Village. Steps away from shopping and restaurants. A very short drive to Santa Cruz, or you can even walk to Pleasure Point if you want some exercise. We walked there one morning and it was about 2 miles. There is also an excellent beach moments away from the house, we went every night to enjoy the sunsets. Our sheltie was thrilled to make multiple trips to the beach each day. Santa Cruz and Capitola seem extremely dog friendly, our dog was warmly greeted by many people everywhere we went. We love traveling with our dog and it's nice to be in a dog friendly location. It was cold during our stay, so we didn't spend a lot of time on the decks, but I'm sure it's a wonderful spot to relax in the warmer months. I enjoyed watching the ducks in the creek, the fireplace and big picture window made it easy to stay warm inside and enjoy the creek at the same time. The booking process was easy and Steve the owner was pleasant to work with. Thank you, I hope to stay again in the future!
We just got back from our 4th stay at this lovely little house and love it as much this time as the first time. We spent our days doing nothing more energetic than visiting with the two and four footers who walk by on the path, watching the birds on the river, and deciding where to go to lunch. Our Collies insisted on some exploratory walks around the neighborhood otherwise we probably wouldn't have left the deck! The house is very comfortably furnished with everything anyone might need including kitchen equipment but with Gayle's and restaurants close by why cook? Capitola is a cute little town and this cottage is the perfect place to enjoy the ambiance - just park your car then be as active as you want or kick back and do nothing. It's an ideal way to spend a mini-vacation. We'll be back again hopefully many times!
Just a beautiful and relaxing place within walking distance to the beach and restaurants. The new French doors from the master bedroom to the deck was a great surprise this year. The deck overlooks the river and walking path (perfect place to relax and have your morning coffee, watch the ducks or talk to people passing by). The patio is a great place to enjoy you family meals as well as watch you kids paddle by in the two kayaks provided. The owners Steve and Lois responded quickly to our questions. Our favorite place to stay in Capitola...can't wait to go back !
This is the ideal place to spend a quiet relaxing vacation! This beauty is clean, bright and beautifully decorated. It has a fully equipped, modern kitchen adjacent to a cozy living room; there are two comfortable bedrooms and a large bathroom. There was plenty of room to fit two adults, 4 teenagers and a small dog. But the real fabulousness starts on the first of two decks! With its amazing view, it is the perfect place to sip your morning brew and read a book or chat with the people walking the trail. In the afternoon, you can lay in the sun or just sit and listen to the ducks. We enjoyed most of our dinners watching the beautiful sunsets. The second deck, down on the water, is a great place for some morning sun or launching the canoe. Not to be overlooked is the four car parking. Steve and Lois are kind and generous and very quick to respond. You can't go wrong booking your stay at their home.
We just returned from another great week in this charming home. We've spent a week in this house every year for several years and it's always a wonderful experience. This year the house had nice French doors in the master bedroom that opened up to the peaceful, lovely deck. This house was a great find for us and Steve and Lois, the owners are the nicest people! We love everything about the house, from the awesome paint job, the cozy beds, great location, to the great windows that allow such nice views. We'll be back next year for another super week in this wonderful home!
Firstly, this is a great location. We loved the fireplace and the walkway and river. And plenty of parking.That being said a few things could make it better. Firstly, it seems as though whoever painted the inside forgot the second coat. This is evidenced everywhere and just makes you think someone didn't care. Keep it clean due to ants, but the ants are there anyway. But hey, it's the beach. Out of maybe 12 windows maybe 2 or 3 have screens. Stuff flies in. You need screens! Finally, as great as the river walk is don't leave anything of value on the deck. We mistakenly left my friends daughter's bike by the back door....bye bye. Finally, in the past I have rented property where the owner lives there at times also. Thus they are comfortable.
It shows that this property does not have that extra care. But it wouldn't take much to get it there!
