About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

We own two of these marvelous beach homes. This is unit #3. It is identical to unit #4. This listing is for unit #3.

This beach front property is one of the very best in all of Capitola or Santa Cruz. We are just beginning to rent it out after keeping it exclusively for the family over the past few years. It was completely rebuilt 4-5 years ago and is in absolutely great shape. It has a flat screen TV, free internet, and a great stereo system. If you do have to finish a little work when you arrive, you can access the internet while you are out in front of the beach home enjoying the view.

Enjoy the sun, sea, and sand out your front door and don't miss the shopping and dining all within walking distance. This condo sleeps 6 comfortably and has a fully equipped kitchen. We offer towels and linen for the beds that you can use during your stay. Just wash, dry, and fold them before you leave in the washer and dryer provided.

This beach house has been in the family for many years and we spared no expense when we rebuilt it. It is one of the very best available in Capitola.

With the beach as our 'family room' and the ocean our playground, this is where we have made some of our fondest family memories. We are sure you will build many memories of your own that you will enjoy and cherish.

While you are here, BBQ on the beach to the sounds of the crashing waves and listen to the music of the Fog Bank restaurant band being played from across the lagoon. Stroll to the village for homemade ice cream at the Cafe Violette-Polar Bear Ice Cream or just stroll down to the end and check out the view.

In the morning, drop by Mr. Toots Coffee house for your AM pick-me-up. Then wander over to Zelda's for a tasty breakfast. This is only if you decide not to make your own breakfast in the fully furnished kitchen. Make sure you walk off your delicious meal by browsing the many wonderful shops in the Capitola Village. Be sure to check out the Rainbow City Limits Store to view their great selection of kites and other fun activities for the kids.

These historic homes are part of the unique charm of Capitola. Our families have built many memories over the years and are sure you will do the same.

This listing is for unit #3. If it is unavailable, please check out the listing for unit #4 which is an identical unit next door. Unit #3 is the blue house in the photo and unit #4 is the green house in the photo.

Keywords: Beach Front Condo. Front row of Venetian beach homes. Opens directly to the beach.

Great Location-ON THE BEACH

  • 5 of 5

The Mouse House is very comfortable and has everything you need to relax and enjoy the beach. We would like to go back again. Walk to cafes and stores 3 minutes away. I made a friend there-Albert the seagull was waiting every morning for me to share fresh pastries, while I enjoyed coffee and the ocean. He ate out of my hand, while my wife reminded not to feed him. You will love The Mouse House!!

Mouse House Magic!

  • 5 of 5

This marks 25 years of the Capitola experience, now on to making it a tradition for our grand babies! We love the Mouse House and so do all our friends. The location provides the perfect spot for sunning, relaxing, beach play, making new friends, and a great night's sleep. We moved to Aptos (just 3 miles away) 7 years ago because of our love for this beautiful area. Even so, we still rent The Mouse House every summer.

Cozy Friendly Condo

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time using VRBO so I was very hesitant about renting a place and would it match my expectations. The "Mouse House" as they cutely call it is very cozy and relaxing. Its roomy enough for you to enjoy your stay without feeling cramped up. The kitchen is plenty of dishes and cookware to make you feel right at home making breakfast or dinner. Your steps away from the sand with a beautiful morning view. The owner is very helpful and friendly if you have questions regarding the condo or your stay. I definitely plan on making another trip to the "Mouse House" Condo in the future.

One of our favorite places!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at the Mouse House and we loved it again! The location is so perfect for letting the kids spend at much time on the sand and at the beach as they want. And you don't have to tote everything you own there first. The house provides plenty of towels and all of the kitchen supplies we needed to cook most of our meals there; having the dishwasher and washing machine and dryer made everything that much easier. We all wanted to stay longer - we'll have to start planning our return trip!
