"This house exceeded my expectations. It was very comfortable and well stocked. It Is right on the river so the views are beautiful any time of day. It is a quick walk to town with access to the supermarket, restaurants, and fun stores. Don't miss driving to Duncan Mills for fresh ground coffee and baked goods, Goat Rock and Blind beaches south of Jenner and Armstrong Redwoods. We were able to bring our dog. They have a dock and you can swim easily to the beach on the other side of the river. There are water floats, beach towels, and a ping pong table. We didn't need to use the fireplace because the weather was perfect. We will probably make this a yearly trip."

"We stayed 3 nights in this apartment at the beginning of our stay in California.
It was perfect in every way for us and our 2 late teens children with plenty of room and all mod cons.
The location was ideal for fishermans wharf as long as you don't mind walking up very steep hills,although the cable car does run very close by.
Heather provided lots of very useful information about the area which was a big help for our first visit.
I would definitely recommend this beautiful apartment to anyone visiting San Francisco.
We had a wonderful time."

"Location could not be beat! Owner could not be more accommodating! Carrie went above and beyond to make sure everything was great, including letting us check in very early. Having a large garage is a huge plus! Area is close to everything. Right off market street. There were 10 of us, and although another bathroom would have been great, we did just fine! House is very clean. Beds very comfortable! We had a 2 year old and 6 & 9, so laundry facility was really appreciated. Stairs a little daunting with a toddler, and no bars on the windows, so watch your little ones. This was a very positive experience. Everything you need is supplied. My one TINY "complaint" is there was not a working clock in the place. But what the heck, we were on vacation! You will enjoy this amazing house. Thanks so much!"

"Staying in Portola Paradise was a great choice to start our CA trip, we were very happy with the house and all the little extras included (wifi, Netflix, stocked kitchen, etc.). With two little boys (3yr and 1yr old) it was important to have a nice place to stay and Portola Paradise worked out amazingly well for our needs.
The location was perfect for watching the surfers, visiting the Boardwalk and Monterey Bay. We also enjoyed walking around Pleasure Point, the local stores and eating at Pleasure Pizza were great. Capitola was also very close.
This owner was easy to work with and my first VRBO rental experience was great. I would recommend Portola Paradise to anyone wishing to stay in the Santa Cruz area."
