Here are two precious poems by twin 9 year old girls while staying at Dolphinwatch -

Listen, by Paris B

Bolting, crashing, smashing, dipping, coming in and coming out, it pauses and starts again, like fireworks and granades, you can hear it roar, it's trying to tell you something but you aren't listening, the ocean is calling to you . . .

Ocean Blue, by Olivia B

light blue horizon can touch the gentle waves crashing on the shore will make it go astray touching every creature moving in its path better not get too close or it will go crash

Ocean Blue bright as dew birds skimming and looking for fish, fish jumping, seals swimming, all in its path

guest book comment 06/06: every time I looked out over the fabulous view from my place on the chaise, or relaxed on blankets on each bed, or watched my sister floating happily in the hot tub, I kept hearing Humphrey Bogart's voice echoing in my head, saying wistfully 'the stuff that dreams are made of.' And he was right this place seems to have materialized out of a dream . . .

Gorgeous views, nice house, great ambiance!

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of 7 people and the house was just perfect to accommodate our stay. There were a few small glitches like dirty towels left in the bathrooms, the dishwasher loaded with dishes and the refrigerator drawer was sticky with some red juice, but the rest of the amenities were great and there were plenty towels to replace the dirty ones. The kitchen has all the appliances and dishes that one could dream of. We brought all our cooking supplies and condiments as we read that there are no pantry items at the house. The outdoor patio has very comfortable furniture and even though there is construction going on next door, over the weekend they stopped the work and it was quiet and relaxing.

We very much enjoyed our stay and will return in the future with friends and family.

Amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were delighted not only with the interior property but enjoyed most of our time around the outside gas firepit savoring the view and listening to the waves only feet away. Wonderful place for small or large gathering - we shall be back!!!

Breathtaking!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this home! The views are amazing, the beds comfortable, and the kitchen well stocked! We were planning to eat out most nights, but ended up eating in because we wanted to relax and enjoy the views. We saw dolphins, whales and sea otters. We traveled with our three teenagers, and it was perfect! The house is a short walk to a beach that is not crowded at all. Surf lessons at Capitola Beach Company were a huge hit! And the drive to the Monterey Bay Aquarium was very easy. Thanks for helping make our vacation memorable!
