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
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!
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.
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!
My friends and I stayed here for a girls weekend. It was a beautiful little house and very conveniently located. Helpful management.
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.
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.
