Was perfect for our womans get away.

  • 5 of 5

We had a weekend get away for my mom’s 80th. The home had all the room and beds we needed and the kitchen was excellent for cooking the birthday dinner. We were 11 adults. Loved the yard as well. We had one raining day so did not get to enjoy it as much as we had hoped but when the sun came out we were there. The property is just steps to the ocean. Management was very responsive to all our needs. Wish we could have stayed longer.

Beach weekend

  • 4 of 5

My family and I stayed at this beach house to celebrate my birthday. It was an excellent place for a gathering of 14 although not everyone stayed the night. There are 4 bedrooms, the master is quite comfortable with a king the other 3 with queen beds worked well for my adult children and spouses. I'd say it sleeps 8 adults very comfortably. The basement had beds that would work for teenagers, not so much adults. The kitchen was great! The only real issue was that the towels were musty and even after washing them they weren't nice so I'd replace the towels. The location is very nice for walking along the path above the beach.

It was an enjoyable stay and great for a gathering.

The house my family keeps talking about

  • 5 of 5

What can I say about this place that will do it justice?! This place is absolutely amazing! I planned a surprise birthday party for my husband where I flew his best friends and father from Canada. The house fit everyone (including my dog and son) to stay for the weekend and even had enough room for me to throw a birthday party. It was a perfect weekend.

Let's start with the house. It has an ELEVATOR!!!! This was so convenient when we were carrying luggage and food to and from the kitchen (on the 3rd floor). The house was very clean and well decorated. The rooms were spacious. There are 4 rooms with queen size beds (king in the master) and the bottom floor has 3 additional queen beds. Plenty of room to fit a ton of people.

The location of the home was quite convenient. It is within walking distance to Pleasant Point Beach and approximately 5 minutes (drive) to the nearest grocery store (Lucky's). Downtown Capitola is about 10 minutes away. Overall, the location is very close to everything.

The property owners were very responsive. I never had to wait more than 20 minutes to get a response from them. They were very friendly and helpful.

I would definitely rent this place again.

Beautiful house!! Tons of room. Great location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a girls trip in this house. There were 12 of us and there was more than enough space for all of us. The house has everything you need plus some! The kitchen is amazing...there is a huge fridge plus 2 more refrigerated drawers in the island! The elevator was a huuugggeee help carrying everything up and down! Bathrooms are very spacious and clean. Beds were very comfortable. The discription of the house was a little there are 4 bedrooms (1king and 3 queens) and the basement also has 3 more queen beds! More than enough room for all of us! Only draw backs are proximity to neighbors and the beach that is 6 doors away is a pile of huge rocks, not sand. But there is a beach less than a min drive back toward the boardwalk (Moran lake and Beach access) so that was perfect for us! It is so close to Capitola as well. There are a few shops close by. Grocery store very close. This is probably the nicest house we've ever stayed in and I would not hesitate to rent it again!!! Very responsive rental host/agency! Rent this won't regret it!

Surprisingly amazing!

  • 5 of 5

I initially avoided this rental because of the spiral outside staircase and the seeming discrepancy between details of rooms, beds, and looks.... But wow! It is actually incredibly roomy. There were three families including eight little kids, and we all had plenty of room. The spaciousness actually made supervising the youngest one a bit of a challenge! The rest of them found it a four-day game of hide and seek. The biggest and most popular surprise? The two spiral INSIDE staircases had a fabulous alternative: a three-story elevator! That made the three levels safe for the toddler, and for lugging suitcases to the top and basement floors. The house is a unique blend of glamour and total funky surprises (in the basement suite there is a "jail cell" storage unit, and a urinal in that bathrrom! - the four little boys loved it!) There is an outside shower to help not bring the beach INTO the house. The garage is stocked with surfboards, bikes, sand toys, and a fusball table. The basement has a pool table. The kitchen has a Wolff range and an island with a prep sink. And the location is hard to beat. Even the tiniest of us could walk to the ocean, and the surfers could just pop over "to catch a few waves; we'll be back soon." Enough rambling... The only "con" - all the granite and marble makes the house LOUD. (But the lack of carpets made the house so practical and worry-free!)
