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!

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.

Wonderful visit to Capitola

  • 5 of 5

A dear nephew's wedding brought us to Capitola for a wonderful four-night stay at Michelle's cute little cottage. Six of us stayed here very comfortably. Rustic and charming on the outside; beautifully decorated and efficient on the inside. We had everything we needed, including a cozy gas fireplace where we sat with our coffee on a couple of chilly mornings. Loved drifting off to sleep to the faint sound of the ocean waves, and we were delighted to discover that the TV had a subscribed channel to HBO to let us watch Game of Thrones! Michelle was a dream to communicate with, going over and above to help me out after I sent an incorrect address for the return of my security deposit (which came promptly). I would have no hesitation to recommend this house to others. A few things: the house was quite hot and musty when we came in, but quickly freshened and cooled once we opened the windows; the hot water in the kitchen is very slow to heat up; and we never did quite get the front door to lock properly. These were trivial issues, though, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Owner's Response: So glad to hear you enjoyed yourselves! I hope you come again! I'm not sure why you had difficulty with the keycode on the front door. I personally checked it prior to your entrance and after your departure, and it was functioning properly. Perhaps the door swelled with the change in weather? At any rate, I apologize for any difficulty you experienced. Take care, M.

Charming Capitola Beach House

  • 5 of 5

With my husband's family flying in from Belgium we wanted to give them a great California coast experience - a place to relax and unwind for a few days before heading out on our road trip. This house was absolutely perfect for that. It is only two blocks from the ocean, one block from Capitola Village's shops, and yet it's quietly tucked away behind the action. My husband's brother says it's the best sleep he's had in years. Every morning we enjoyed breakfast under the sun at the outdoor table and chatted by the fireplace at night. The house is very clean, cozy and charmingly decorated, and everything we needed for cooking was available. There are many corners for reading a good book, both inside and outside the house, as the ocean wind blows over you. Michelle, the hostess, was very friendly and helpful. We'll definitely be back!

Beautiful home, excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

I was looking for a home that would fit 10 adults for a mellow bachelorette gathering for my sister. Michelle warned me that we would be cozy since the house is small, but it was absolutely perfect! It was actually a lot bigger than I had envisioned, with plenty of room for everyone to hang out and to sleep. You can tell that the owners take great care of their home. I loved the cute hand-painted artwork around the home as well. Michelle was quick to respond to any questions I had before the stay and was very helpful throughout the process. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. The house is also a VERY short walk from the downtown area, which we loved. Thank you for sharing your home with us! We will certainly return someday.

Stylish home, perfect location & great for families

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this house. Perfect location and the home is stylishly decorated. We were so impressed with how well laid out it was. Plenty of room for our two families. Very comfortably sleeps 10. Kid ages ranged from 3-15. We were able to spread out when desired, and yet room for all of us to enjoy dinner together. The kitchen and sunroom open to a back patio with comfy patio furniture, a fire pit, large table and chairs, and a bbq. The hot water shower outside was perfect for kids covered in sand after a day at the beach (just two short blocks away). One block from downtown. Walk to everything! House was fully stocked, including tons of beach and shower towels. We are looking forward to visiting again!

Great cottage for groups or families!

  • 5 of 5

Just finished a girl's weekend with 4 of us and this place was perfect. Very cute, lots of space, had everything you might possibly need and the location is amazing. We enjoyed the beautiful courtyard space as well and parking was no issue for us - plenty of space in the lot one block up and the location is so convenient we had no need to move our cars all weekend. Would certainly stay here again!
