Rented this beach house for my birthday. It was absolutely beautiful. It’s so close to all the shops and restaurants. I had the most amazing birthday weekend. So happy I chose to stay in Capitola.

Wonderful unit on the sea wall!

We have visited Capitola for over 25 years and this was one the best. Grotta Del Mare is spectacular in every way. It has been tastefully remodeled with high end appliances and everything, including cooking utensils and dishes etc. It can't get any better. On top of that, it sits on the sea wall where we could all watch the sun go down. The weather was better than most summers we have been there. It was our grand daughter's birthday and she said she always wanted to stay in one of the Venetians. She got her wish. Thanks to DeDe and Sara for taking care of us as usual. We will see you in July!
