Great location!

  • 5 of 5

The location is perfect. A short walk to small shops and another short walk to Capitola. The house was just the right size for us to enjoy our Thanksgiving meal. All the extra little touches were greatly appreciated. We look forward to staying there again.

Beach Lovers Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Not only is this a charming, comfortable home loaded with everything you could possibly need for the beach but the location is a 10+! It’s an easy stroll to the beautiful, private homeowner’s beach or the surfer’s paradise, Pleasure Point. This was our third year staying at Casa La Sirena and we can’t wait to come back again next year.

The perfect spot for a girls week end getaway! We were able to walk to the beach, shopping, restaurants and wine tasting! We had a wonderful time and loved all the little special touches! The beds were really comfortable and made for a great nights rest. I would recommend to anyone that is looking to visit the area.

Our 2nd Time - Love This Place!

We have stayed at this home two times and we are looking forward to staying again next year. The home is lovely with vibrantly colored walls and comfortable beds. The beds and linens were comfortable and high quality. Also, the place is very clean. The location is perfect with the beach and great places to eat close by.
