About Leonard

Hello!......I've been enjoying the beach house for some years and have decided to share with people who enjoy a beautiful, tranquil place to stay.

Leonard purchased this condo in 1996

Why Leonard chose Capitola

I fell in Love with the Historic Venetians many years ago. I first purchased one unit, then another and combined them to create a new completely remodeled, beautiful beach home in the Heart of Capitola Village.

What makes this condo unique

SMOKE FREE......AND PET FREE.....My home is only 12 steps to the sand...........You will hear the waves rummaging through the wharf on its way to the sand........You overlook the Wharf, the Esplanade (many great restaurants and shops), the surfers, the Begonia Festival, the Art & Wine Festival, the Sand Castles, the sailboats and of course the sea!......Both Master Suites have a Jacuzzi Tub, so you can look at the beach while soaking away in a bubble bath!.The nice thing about Capitola is that you don't need to drive anywhere. Everything is within an easy walk, or if you prefer to take public transportation, that is available as well....There are so many great restaurants: The Shadow Brook, The Stockton Bridge, Bella Roma, Margaritaville, Carusos, Paradise Beach and Lillians. A great breakfast omelet overlooking the ocean is at the end of the Capitola Wharf at the Wharf Restaurant.

Our Five-Night Stay at Capitola Venetian

  • 5 of 5

What an absolutely fabulous vacation home!

Steps from the beautiful clean Capitola beach, wharf, downtown, and great restaurants, Leonard's home is second-to-none. Clean, spacious, well-supplied, and very comfortable, this house provides the perfect getaway and gathering spot for my family, young and old. After a restful sleep in any one of the comfortable beds, we especially love the morning walks to Melinda's gluten-free bakery and our return to eat at the kitchen table with a full view of the beach. The kitchen, part of the house's open layout, is convenient and equipped with everything needed for quick easy meals and grills. The patio, equipped with a BBQ, also offers a glimpse of the beach and wharf. (Note: Have Leonard demonstrate using the BBQ because its start-up is tricky). After a day at the beach, the three large showers accommodate all. For nights after a late-evening restaurant dinner, the living room's couches and chairs, plus the dining room table, provide great open space for visiting and game-playing together. For an evening Santa Cruz Boardwalk trip, a five-minute taxicab drive beats the price of parking. And, to make our stay even more comfortable and enjoyable, Leonard is a gracious, friendly, GREAT host. His house has excellent amenities and a stellar location. This was our second stay with definite plans to return next summer. I highly recommend Leonard's property without reservation.

Wonderful Location and great Ocean View

  • 4 of 5

Couldn't ask for a better location, the view from the balcony and kitchen was great. You really are right there on the beach. Great for walks along the beach, wharf and it is right next to the village shops. Accommodations were comfortable, though the large fourth bedroom is not really a separate bedroom with a door but a converted family room with two beds. Leonard was very helpful and welcoming.

Lived in, great for our group

  • 4 of 5

The house was definitely lived in, but the surfaces were clean. The kitchen was very functional, with plenty of dishes, cookware, etc. The dishwasher (soap included) worked well. The grill only worked on one side and we had some difficulty lighting it. Also, the vacuum did not work.

There was plenty of toilet paper and soap in the bathrooms. There were sand toys and chairs available for the beach, which is only about 20 feet away. Tons of restaurants, bars and shopping just over the bridge. Great location!

The views from the breakfast nook and back bedroom were amazing, incredible sunrises!!

Leonard is amazing. He is so kind, met us when we arrived to do a walk through, then was readily available for any questions. We even forgot an item and he’s mailing it to us promptly!!

Overall, I do recommend this house for your next group event!

Owner's Response: Hi Kristin......Thank you for your Review. Of course my beach home looks like it's been lived in! That's why people come!....Over the last year, I've had at least 60 different Guest families stay from 2 to 8 nights, with on average about 9 people in each group! As I do every year, I have to wait until I have a couple of weeks during the winter/fall to spruce the place up again! You've come in mid-October, just before the sprucing up. Sorry that you were unable to get 1/2 the BBQ going, as I was able to start up both burners right away. As I mentioned to you, if you have any trouble with getting anything going, I'm just a phone call away!.. Also, the vacuum works fine; The turn on switch must be pushed with the foot, not the hand. I hope to see you next year!......Leonard P.S. Someone in your group left about 3 or 4 nice looking blue work-out mats.....Is there someone in your group that is local, so that I may drive the mats to them? Perhaps, in San Jose, etc.?
