"A week at the beach just before school started with 3 grandkids, ages 15, 10, and 6. It was just perfect. This tiny house had it all, views, short walk to beach, bikes and beach equipment in garage, hot tub to warm up in after watching the sunset. The photoes were accurate. The house was easy to keep neat and clean. The kitchen had a killer view and great knives, pots and appliances. The outdoor area is very private from the very quiet street. One bedroom was a lovely room across the garden, without a bathroom but perfect for 2 nights for my grandkids parents. It would be great for teens.
I would give this house a 5 star rating if the bathroom was updated--shower was small and in need of replacement. My 15 year old granddaughter only took 2 showers, rather than the usual daily shower!
The location is perfect: lovely small beach with surfers, seals, otters, whale-sightings, and beach fires at night. Just a 2 mile walk or bike ride to Capitola. A couple of blocks from the famous Pleasure Point - surfers paradise. Food and mall shopping nearby.
We rode bikes most days. We took a whale watching trip from the nearby harbor on Stagnaros boat. Saw more whales than I ever expected, great captain and naturalist. A visit to the Seymore Marine center near UC was wonderful for the kids, touched a shark (very tiny shark). Lucky for me the parents took the kids to the famous boardwalk.
I cannot wait for next summer and returning to this sweet little place!"
