Property description

We offer a beautiful two bedroom, one bath home on prestigious Opal Cliff Drive.

Vaquita House is a remodeled cottage steps from Privates Beach, our gated neighborhood beach. We provide you with a key to access this unique gated beach and great uncrowded surf spot. A seven minute walk along the ocean will take you to shopping and dining in Capitola Village and awesome Capitola Beach. Famous surf spots the Hook and Pleasure Point are also just a short walk away. A surfer's paradise; walk to your own break. Surfboad and wetsuit racks are right outside your door in a secure patio area for easy access.

Vaquita House comes with a full kitchen, new stainless steel appliances, and everything you need to prepare a gourmet meal right at home. The house has hardwood floors in the main living space and carpeted bedrooms. Island themed art work fills the house with a laid back vacation feel. Both the queen bed and the twin-bed room access the private landscaped patio through their own sliding glass doors. Relax in the sun with the outdoor dining table surrounded by flowers and hummingbirds. The patio deck is perfect for barbecuing on the grill or relaxing with a glass of wine.

Less than a ten minute walk to Capitola Wharf, Capitola Village, Capitola Beach, Pleasure Point, great shopping, and fine dining. Vaquita House is a short drive to downtown Santa Cruz and the beach boardwalk, and 35 minutes to Monterey. Perfect for a romantic getaway or family beach vacation.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2005

About: Alexandra & Jon own and manage the Vaquita House. In addition to maintaining our rental, Alexandra is an author and psychotherapist; Jon is an organizational consultant and musician. We also have long-standing interest in and love of dolphins. The Vaquita is an endangered porpoise found only in the Gulf of California. We donate a portion of the proceeds from the house to the conservation of the ocean and preservation of the dolphins and whales.

Why Opal Cliffs, CA, USA:
We've lived on the east side of Santa Cruz since going to the University years ago. The Opal Cliffs neighborhood offers a vacation vibe in a family friendly neighborhood. Nestled between Capitola Village and Pleasure Point, you can walk to everything you need while at the same time having home base in a quiet, safe neighborhood. Many people run, walk, and bike on Opal Cliff Drive to take in this beautiful street; Privates Beach is 10 doors down from our house. The upgraded promenade along East Cliff Dr is two blocks away. We love it here because everything you need is within a few blocks. You can literally park your car for the week and walk to Pilates, baked goods, surf spots, breakfast, organic markets, bars, beaches, bike shops, boutiques, wine tasting and anything else you can think of. We often think our neighborhood is too good to be true. . . but it is true. Come and see.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Vaquita House is in an upscale residential neighborhood. We personally do the check ins and check outs and keep the property in tip top shape; it is professionally cleaned between each stay. We live nearby and are here for anything you may need. Need a restaurant recommendation for dinner -- romantic or with the kids, you got it! Lovely hiking spot, you got it! Best local cafe, you got it! We love to share the ins and outs of Santa Cruz and Captiola and are happy to answer your questions at any time during your stay.
