Indeed a slice of heaven

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent an entire week at Steve & Lois’ small but wonderful home on the Soquel Creek. As nice as the pictures are in the VRBO ad, they don’t do the place justice. Yes it’s small but it has a great layout plus with the patio the place just didn’t feel cramped. There was my wife and I, two of our adult kids and our son’s girlfriend and we had plenty of room. It was nice having a washer and dryer and the kitchen was perfect for a short stay. We took advantage of the canoe several times and it was a blast. We were blessed with fantastic weather and sunny days but the fireplace was nice to cut the early morning chill.

Was it perfect? No. We’re the beds really comfortable? No. Would we stay there again? YES!! Would we recommend it to a friend? YES!!

Sitting on the patio deck in the early morning with a coffee or afternoon/evening with a glass of wine watching the river/creek roll by - and the kayaks and canoes - was heavenly! Far enough from the village to be quiet and peaceful, yet close enough to walk to town/beach in minutes.

As for the owners Steve & Lois, they are great. They were always quick to respond with questions and cared about the quality of our stay.

What if anything will we change if we stay next year? We’ll stay for two weeks!!

Highly recommend!

Same time next year.

  • 4 of 5

With melancholy anticipation, my wife and I enjoyed coming for a 2nd stay this year at a " Slice of Heaven ", From making the colorful river walk into town ( 3 times daily ), hours spent on the back deck playing scrabble and greeting fellow dog walkers, plus taking in the ocean air and views, It's always an exclusive getaway.

Exceptional Capitola cottage and prime location

  • 5 of 5

We've had the pleasure of staying at this property twice now and this second stay at the end of July was as magical as the first! We visited the Capitola area with three young kids. The owners are great hosts and the amenities at the property, which include two kayaks and a canoe, made our trip! The view just outside the cottage is breathtaking and we took daily walks along Creekside path to the village and beach, which is a very short walk away. We didn't have a chance to dine at the amazing Shadowbrook restaurant this trip, but it just a short distance away right across the creek (around the corner by car). The location of this cottage can't be beat. It's near the historic trestle, Capitola beach and lots of great dining options. The Soquel creek and the kayaking/canoeing were highlights of our stay! Great fun with kids. Hope to be back for a third stay soon!

Beautiful location.

  • 4 of 5

We spend a lot of time on the deck just watching the comings and goings of both other tourists and the ducks. Very peaceful. It would be nice, however, to have at least one more umbrella to block the afternoon sun.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your kind words about our little home. I like the idea of an extra umbrella. We had a large shade tree before but it was eaten by termites. Hope to see you in the future

Relaxing and Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Capitola. In the past, we had rented a different house in the village. The location is about equal. Maybe a three minute walk vs one minute. Who cares as we were not in any hurry. What sets this house apart from the other is its location on Soquel Creek and the included access to the kayaks and canoe. We paddled up and down the creek multiple times each day. Such a relaxing week. Already thinking about our next visit.
