Property description

This charming setting and cottage has become known as the first home built along the creek.
There are numerous traces and remnants of historic Capitola hidden, but still remaining in this old beach town. This unit is one of them and is available to be rented anytime of year. Take advantage of these great seasonal rates!

Recently renovated, this cozy historic 2 bedroom 1 bath riverfront cottage is located in the heart of the Capitola Village. You can enjoy this peaceful habitat setting, relaxing in the most spacious yard, or on the deck overlooking the coastal wildlife along the banks of Soquel Creek. Certainly, walking a two-minute trail stroll to Capitola’s most popular beach, wharf, shopping, bars & restaurants is an option as well. This furnished beach cottage is in an ideal location and provides the perfect retreat for a family or friends.

This sweet craftsman is in the shape of a duplex now that does share 1 wall and the front patio. However, it has not lost it's original and historic charm. To whom will you be sharing the wall with? Well, a very nice tenant who has complete understanding that we rent our side unit during the summer. The tenant keeps to themselves and you may see a glimpse of him/her coming and going. Situated in the Riverview Terrace neighborhood, you will feel like you have a very private setting. We have been renting for numerous years now and have yet to have any issues with this arrangement.

This is a great place for a couple or small family that want to enjoy this great little village without hassle! Relax on the deck with a drink overlooking the creek. Cuddle up with your honey or with your loved ones while taking in the smells and sounds of this coastal riperian corridor.

Year Purchased: 1976

About: I very much enjoy living in Capitola for it has much to offer. There are sandy beaches to walk on, surfing and fishing in the ocean, and hiking and biking in nearby forests. Being a general contractor means working outside a lot. This area has some fog in the summer months, that really makes for a comfortable climate. I like to build and work on homes. More recently, I have built a number of decks and fences using redwood and bamboo harvested sustainably from the Santa Cruz area. One thing I hear about Capitola that holds truth, 'Once you come here, you will always come back.'

Why Capitola:
Capitola is a great place to live along the coast . In only a little over an hour by car and you can be in San Francisco or Monterrey/Carmel. Being within walking distance of the beach has ethereal advantages. There is nothing else like the sounds of the waves lapping or crashing along the shoreline. There always seems to be an influx of aquatic life that beckons into this bay's region during the summer months. Whale watching and fishing has been epic in recent years and is just a walk to the wharf and a boat ride away. I like to think that the beach is close enough to enjoy the excitement, yet far enough away when it is time for quietude.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This craftsman home is the first house to be built along Soquel Creek. The view across the creek makes you feel like you are in the forest, yet the ocean is also visable beneath the train trestle and Stockton bridges. Far enough away from the traffic, there is a subtle peacefulness. Some large trees provide shade. There is a spacious driveway for parking and large creek side yard with a redwood deck and benches for relaxing. Being along the creek allows viewing of a wide variety of waterfowl. The beach is within a two-minute walk along a foot path that provides a straight shot to the beach.
