Interaction with guests
We are both engrossed in our businesses right now. As much as we love to meet people, family and work are our top priorities right now. So, while we can offer helpful hints to our guests about our area and give recommendations, we won't have time to share meals or be a guide. We do travel frequently so our presence during your stay depends on our schedules, which we will gladly share with you!
The Jewel Box is a popular neighborhood in Capitola, with all the street names being jewels. It is very family friendly, safe and quiet but very close to the ocean beaches, parks, walking paths, shops and restaurants. Jade Street Park is two blocks away with 4 tennis courts and the cliffs offer a spectacular view of the Monterey Bay Marine Sanctuary. The climate is very mild year round so our neighborhood is usually alive with families and visitors spending time outdoors. We hope you will love it here as much as we do!
Our cottage is located just off Highway 1 yet tucked away in a residential neighborhood where there isn't much traffic. In general, busses can get you where you need to go. We like to bike if we aren't going more than a few miles away. And everything is very walkable from our home...a few blocks to the seaside Capitola Village and the famed Pleasure Point surf breaks. Grocery, salons, boutiques and restaurants are all nearby.
Other things to note
This is the perfect place to stay if you are coming into town for the Begonia Festival, Wharf to Wharf footrace or the Art and Wine Festival...close to the Village but out of the fray and chaos during those and other events!
