We have a small bungalow in Capitola Village, CA along the coast of what is generally called "Santa Cruz" just off the beach and next to the village, where all the restaurants and quaint shops are a four minute walk away.
It's a two bed / one bath cottage and we have a spare bedroom with a queen size bed for you. Full kitchen and shared bathroom with shower.
Parking is free (as a popular beach town, Capitola has limited parking) in front of the house.
We don't have TV in the house, but full on WiFi and a deep record collection :)
The neighborhood is like a culdesac, with only one street entry/exit, so there is no traffic except locals, which makes it quiet except for the sound of the ocean. The house sits at the end of a dead end street, three houses away from the shore.
Capitola sits on the mouth of Soquel Creek and has a lovely groomed beach and the town is centered around the beach esplanade. It is not a chain store village; all the coffee shops, bars, restaurants, and shops are local-owned. It's such a neat place to visit. Malls and chain stores are about a 5 minute drive towards Santa Cruz.
Wonderful beach bungalow; wonderful location.
Fantastic location, amazing host and beautiful property. Was in town for a wedding and stayed at the property with my girlfriend, who had stayed previously. Within walking distance of capitola beach and all the restaurants and shops.
Joe the host was always available if we needed him for anything so felt very comfortable whilst staying at the property.
Definitely be returning for another visit soon :)
We had a great time at Joe's place. Charming, simple and cozy, it's a perfect beach cottage. We loved curling up on the couch and listening to the rain patter on the roof (since rain has been scarce in Santa Barbara this year). The location on Depot Hill above Capitola Village is wonderful, just a short walk to the village or beach. We also enjoyed spending time with Lori and Joe. We'd be happy to stop here again when we are in the area next.
Joe and his wife Lori are great hosts and their cottage in Capitola is a perfect beachy, get away retreat. The bed is super comfortable and the cottage has all the amenities one needs. It was great to have a rainy weekend with nothing to do but curl up on the couch, read, walk into the village, and just relax. We'd love to come on a sunny weekend and just lounge in the adirondacks on the front porch. Thanks Joe!
great stay, Joe made the stay easy. Great location and would recommend for a nice weekend getaway!
All of the other reviews are spot-on! This place is great. Quiet, comfortable and convenient. I only wish we could have stayed longer! Joe and Lori provide a very nice getaway that we hope to enjoy again sometime.
My first time ever using this site, and my sister and I were so thrilled! The bungalow was so cute, and we saw Joe once when he came to bring drinking water- he was so nice and welcoming! Everything worked well (like the heating, etc), it was located in a beautiful neighborhood close to the beach, it was clean and very charming. We had a great, great experience and would love to do it again! Thanks so much to Joe for sharing his little piece of heaven!
Joe is the nicest host, truly! He was great at communicating and just welcoming us in general.There is a chalkboard on the main bedroom door that was customized to welcome me (nice touch!) and he even left us a bottle of wine to enjoy. This sweet house is just a short walk to the ocean and to the quaint little seaside village. It is in a safe, quiet neighborhood and you really can hear the waves from it. The house is simple and very cozy with all basic needs met, the heat worked wonderfully and made it very comfortable. Overall very relaxing experience. Wish we could have spent more than just a night!
Very nice & cozy cottage -- we had an awesome weekend!
The home was cozy and beach cottage sweet! Everything about the place was perfect, nice decor and orderly and welcoming. Great location walking to beach and town. Nice music system too. I would love to stay here again.
