Your Stay in Capitola Starts Here

I wanted to write and thank Beach House Rentals for your excellent customer service, and thank you for arranging such a wonderful place for my family to celebrate a special event. All of us felt so comfortable in the home. It was perfect for the 9 of us. My family members commented on how cozy and warm the home is. We also enjoyed that it was so close to the shops and restaurants! So thank you very much for such a nice setting for such a great weekend. I think I will be reserving this sometime in the near future for a 2021 outing for the family. Perfect Family Beach House

Smooth vacation!

We had such a memorable trip. The beach house worked out well as my daughter and family came for Thanksgiving. We enjoyed a nice dinner out on the balcony. I will definitely be going through your rental agency again. Adorable Capitola Village Condo

What a wonderful location for everything! We walked to get coffee and hot chocolate every morning, and walked to the beach to feel invigorated by the fresh air and tranquility. We walked barefoot to the beach in the afternoon, where we threw footballs and frisbees, skim boarded and boogie boarded. We would eat light during the day, get cleaned up and hit one of the wonderful restaurants on the water for dinner and drinks! We could walk a block to a small market or drive 5 minutes to the grocery store. The Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk is just 15 mins away by car and the Monterey Bay aquarium is less than a hour drive. We enjoyed cooking breakfast and a few dinners at the house - which was stocked with everything we needed! The location was very quiet and comfortable. We had two adults in the master suite, two adults in the second bedroom and 5 kids in the third bedroom. We were very comfortable and look forward to coming back again for another round next year!

Our trip was amazing and the condo was beautiful! I actually was born and raised in SC and grew up on depot hill and now live out of the area. My husband is from the Bay Area and we’ve only come to Santa Cruz for the day to visit my family but never stayed more than a night; this was our first time staying in Capitola and we loved it. Our kids had so much fun at the beach. The condo was so clean and perfect for our family. We definitely want to come back! Beautiful Ocean View Condo
