Bungalow by the Bay
Compact and comfortable house for 2 people with best-equipped kitchen we've seen in a VRBO. Very convenient both to tourist shops (easy walk downhill, tough climb back up if any mobility issues) and locals' routine shopping...can walk to both. Friendly, charming neighborhood, parking on site, one block from spectacular bluff views of surfers in bay below. Owners very responsive and helpful. Will come back.
Quaint Capitola gem!
We had a lovely stay in this cozy comfortable home. Loved riding our bikes around the beach village and on Depot Hill. House was very well stocked and everything worked beautifully for us to enjoy our family holiday get together. Thank you so much Chuck and Stacy!
Great property in a fantastic area.
Comfortable, charming Depot Hill Cottage
This property is located on a quiet street in a residential neighborhood with a short walk to the beach and village with restaurants, shopping.
The cottage has a very well-equipped kitchen and a private backyard with a grill and fire pit. We loved sitting around the fire with family after dinner for conversation and roasting marshmallows!
Best features- lots of windows to let light pour in, a delightful breakfast nook for eating and playing board games, and a perfect porch for reading and watching the world go by!

Not reflective of ad
There are pros and cons to this property. Unfortunately, the ad builds it up to be better than it is. For instance, it boasts Apple TV- this doesn't work, nor does the cable very often. You have to reset the cable box 3-5x/day. Apple just doesn't exist. The ad also mentioned a queen bed; I had to ask for this and the owner brought it after a week. The roof leaks with a good rain. The owner's response to this was via text, "Wow, the place is falling down around you." The glasses & dishes are dirty, but the owner dropped off new glasses for me. There was no where to put them in the cluttered kitchen, so they remained on the counter in their boxes. The fridge was dirty inside when I arrived and there is animal hair on the inside furniture, along with a LOT of dust; I spent my whole first day cleaning. I asked the owner for a discount for that reason, but he didn't address it. The outside cushions haven't been cared for. They are full of dirt, debris, mildew, and animal hair- I never felt comfortable sitting down and spent most of my time away from the house. The house has a lot of stuff in it, and if you're staying more than a week, it can get difficult to live out of a suitcase for that long. The owner did drop off a dresser when I voiced that concern. The location is perfect- 5 minute walk down the stairs to the beach & village. There is a washer and dryer outside in a closet attached to the house. I washed the ironing board cover that I found in there because it was pretty funky. The bathroom sink is old and a bit difficult to get cleaned up in or brush your teeth because of the 2 separate hot/cold faucets with the water stream running against the sink; it's hard to get your toothbrush in there without it touching the dirty sink. There was also black sludge coming out of the sink drain at times, but it wasn't too bad. I asked for the parking passes and was told we didn't need them until after Memorial Day, however, they weren't dropped off after the holiday. Hopefully, visitors only have 1 car to put in the driveway. I found it odd that the ad mentioned "fluffy white towels" when these didn't exist. Why even mention that? The owner bought some cheap white fluffy towels and dropped them off for me. Unfortunately, they aren't very good quality and leave lint everywhere. Overall, not very clean, responsive or living up to the advertised hype. But if you don't mind an old, uncared for home for a few weeks, it's a great lcoation.
