Outstanding home & Location Location Location! 5 Stars
Review by Lisa L. Colorado
We had the best vacation staying in this home. The location is absolutely amazing!!! Literally 2 blocks from the beach and 1/2 block from the adorable town.
The house is gorgeous, totally immaculate, and has everything you need. Outdoor hot shower, gorgeous patio, fireplace, and plenty of room for everyone.The kids bunk room was a huge hit and they even had movies for the kids to watch at night. That was great for all :) We would wake up and have our morning coffee in the sunroom. The kids bunk area is upstairs so you could have plenty of quiet time until they woke up.
The house was very big and it was nice to be able to sit and read in one room and have everyone else in the various rooms in the house.The beds were so comfortable and made for a great night of sleep.I can't say enough about the location. We would go to the beach and run home to make sandwiches and come right back. 2 minute walk into town and the beach.
We would absolutely rent here again!!!

Perfect Beach Cottage! 5 Stars
Review by Andie N.
We stayed at this fabulous cottage in October when we had family visiting from overseas and wanted to show them Capitola. There were 4 adults and 2 children and there was more than enough room for us all. The kids (aged 6 and 8) loved having their own space upstairs and having them upstairs allowed us adults to watch TV and sit around chatting in the evenings without having to worry about disturbing the kids. It also worked in reverse in the mornings when the kids were happy to hang out in the bunk beds and watch cable TV until a everyone was up and about.
The cottage is beautifully appointed with comfy couches to curl up on and read a book or sit around the fireplace on a chilly evening while chatting. The beds were all very comfy and we slept like babies! Kids included! My favorite was definitely the outdoor patio. A real sun-trap and ideal for relaxing in the sun in comfort on the lovely patio furntiure! The outdoor shower was also fantastic when returning from the beach with sandy kids! Quick rinse off outside before heading indoors and no more sand getting thru the whole place! Magic!
The cottage is a short 2 block or 5 minute stroll to the beach and around 3 minutes to the shops and restaurants. Absolutely the BEST location. Parking was relatively easy - on one occasion we had to park a block away but were able to move the car to right outside later that evening. Not really an issue at all!
The owner was fabulous to deal with. She was prompt at replying to our initial enquiry and subsequent communication. And our security deposit was returned within days.
We had the best weekend away staying at this delightful cottage. As perfect a beach cottage as you could imagine. Stay will not be disappointed! We cannot wait to come back. Thank you Michelle!!!

Delightful Getaway! 5 Stars
Review by #tenhappygirls, Bay Area, CA
Our multi-generational group of ten girls really loved your Capitola rental. Our group enjoyed relaxing at the house, playing at the beach, and walking two blocks downtown to explore the shops, restaurants and nightlife. The location is really perfect, the beds were comfy, the decor is fabulous - we enjoyed the indoor and outdoor space, and the kitchen was well stocked for our large group. We all agreed it was the perfect getaway home for a sunny January weekend.The only problem is we wished we had a couple more days! Thank you for sharing your home. We hope to return again some day ...

Great cottage for groups or families! Five Stars
Review by Bonnielk Modesto, CA
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!

Sisters Reunion was Fabulous! 5 Stars
Review by Chris, Merced, CA
High recommendations for this lovely, spacious beach house designed for cozy talks or space to sit, read or nap quietly on your own. Perfectly clean with comfortable beds and all kitchen amenities. Easy two block walk to the beach and restaurants as advertised! Michelle was very helpful with questions, and easily reachable ( I could not figure out the TV remote system initially). The gas fireplace was lovely in the family room and there is a very effective heater in the front living room which was perfect for us since I am always cold and my Illinois sisters are used to cooler temps. This allowed us to all be comfortable. Special praise for the lovely patio. What can be better than sitting out on a great patio in a beach town? We went in the off season so the on-street parking (with a parking permit that was provided) was hardly a problem at all.

Fabulous! 5 Stars
Review by Pazze, Bay Area, CA
I was lucky enough to be one of 6 women who stayed at this lovely home in Capitola for a girl's weekend getaway. The cabin was fully stocked and well appointed. We each got a comfortable bed and although we ate out at several of the wonderful restaurants within walking distance, we also enjoyed cooking and eating in. It's location is AWESOME! Close enough to walk to the beach, shopping and restaurants but not too close to the traffic and hubbub. The back yard is awesome too! I will definitely be back with family or other groups of friends.
