My friends and I had a wonderful time at the Riverview location. We look forward to staying there again this time next year! Thanks for helping us with our accommodations. We couldn’t have been more pleased with our visit to Capitola. Riverview Condo in Capitola

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!

Enjoyed the cottage very much. Very clean. Three bedrooms comfortable. Large kitchen. Enjoyed the front porch and sat out there everyday. The parking is great and so close to the beach. This is a very homey and comfortable place to stay. Capitola Beach Bungalow
