3 Bedroom Beach house, in the heart of Capitola Village. The beach, shops, wine bars, and restaurants just a few steps away. Rent a surf board from the shop across the street, and walk 2 short blocks to the beach! House is hip, comfy, and a great layout for families. Private, outdoor patio is perfect for entertaining, with comfortable lounge seating, a succulent garden, grill and dining table.

Kitchen is open to dining area and sunroom, creating a comfortable living space. Dining room table expands to seat 6-10. Sunroom has cozy, gas burning fireplace, and lounge seating facing the backyard. A perfect spot for morning coffee. Living room is at the opposite end of the house, with flat, screen TV and BluRay/DVD player. WIFI and Cable for your enjoyment. 2 lovely bedrooms downstairs, charmingly furnished.

The 3rd bedroom is upstairs, very large-- and, perfect for kids. It includes a 1/2 bath. Bunkbeds sleep 6. New twin mattresses on top, and new Full mattresses on the bottom. There is also an additional 'play area' upstairs with a 2 new single futons. That can be used separately, or pushed together to make a Queen Bed. A flat screen TV and BluRay/DVD player are also located in the upstairs bedroom for in-bed movies!

Downstairs, off of the bathroom, you'll find a washer and dryer for your sandy clothes. And, our outdoor shower (with hot and cold water) is great for rinsing off, with plenty of room to hang wet suits and sandy towels.

This house is perfect for a family vacation, romantic getaway or girlfriends weekend. It has all the amenities you need for a comfortable vacation. PLEASE NOTE: If you see this listing on Craigslist, you are being scammed. I never advertise there.

About Michelle Murphy

We fell in love with Capitola the first time we visited.

It is such a wonderful beach town, the perfect mix of sun, sand, shopping and dining. Everything you need or want is steps away. Sometimes we visit, and never get in our car. Other times, we take the kids to the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, to famous surf spots...or visit antique shops in Soquel! We think it's the perfect spot to get away for a romantic weekend, or to enjoy with family and friends!

Michelle Murphy purchased this house in 2012

Best Place on Capitola!

  • 5 of 5

So this will be my favorite place when visiting Capitola! Had family down from Alaska and the home was perfect especially since it was raining the whole time. Very spacious and a great upstairs for kids to play. Will be back again!

Excellent beach property for our family gathering!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time during our family gathering (6 adults, 3 kids) over Christmas! The house was the perfect size for all of us with everyone having their own space (2 bedrooms on the lower level and a large bedroom with a staircase to split on the top worked well for the kids on the bunk bed side and me and my husband on the foldout double) and lots of good room for us to gather for meals and fun time together. The location just a few blocks from the beach and just steps from the amazing Capitola shopping area made it an ideal location. Michelle was excellent and prompt with responses to questions as well as providing recommendations during our time there. She has a more than well-stocked kitchen with many standard kitchen appliances, serviceware and tools. We had an excellent stay and would recommend it to friends coming to the area.

Lovely December Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six had a perfect stay at Michelle's place in Capitola! The floor plan of the house is beautiful. You can play board games at the kitchen table which is just adjacent to the sunroom, complete with fireplace and great reading/relaxing chairs. At night, all six of us easily fit on the sectional to watch a movie. The kitchen is fully equipped if you want to cook, but Capitola has an excellent assortment of restaurants. We arrived with a plan to relax, walk around town and walk along the beach. We could have done all that without getting back in the car, but we also loved exploring places in Santa Cruz, just 10-15 minutes away! Michelle is incredibly responsive! We would definitely stay at her place again!

Perfect Property: great location, very comfortable House, awesome owner.

  • 5 of 5

Cozy, quite, clean and very comfortable house - we had 6 adults and 2 young children in our party and never felt overcrowded. ALL beds were very comfortable. Location of house to beach and restaurants is unbeatable. Owner was always responsive, very helpful and genuinely concerned for our well being/comfort. Would definitely recommend to others and stay here again in the future.
