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!

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

The house is in a great location, within walking to stores and beach. Wonderful backyard space, and plenty of room inside to spread out! The kitchen was well stocked, and was really nice to have BBQ and fire pit!

Beds were comfy, and linens nice!

Parking can be a bit tricky, but there are nearby options avail if street parking full. All in all, great little house! Perfect for a couple families with kids!

Great Beach house - so close to the Beach

  • 5 of 5

We just got back form a last minute trip to Capitola. Michelle was able to work with me last minute to arrange our two night stay. The house is perfectly appointed - and space for everyone. We had 3 teenage girls who loved the upstairs, 2 boys who slept in one room and my husband and I. We had so much space, my favorite is the back sunroom that overlooked the beautiful back yard.

The outdoor shower is awesome to keep the sand out after the day at the beach that is a quick 2 block flat walk.

We loved our stay and are already looking at dates for the fall!

A true treasure in the heart of the village!

  • 5 of 5

For starters, Michelle was extremely responsive prior to booking the house which was an indicator that this was going to be a great rental. Spent the past weekend here at this adorable house for a girls weekend. We all LOVED it! Everything we needed was there. I have rented a lot of places and this one tops the list of amenities provided in the house. Kitchen was fully stocked, backyard was perfect for lounging, the sun room was great, beds comfortable, no complaints. The location is PERFECT - quick walk into the village for shopping and restaurants, beach and up the hill to Gayles. We will definitely return!
