About Michelle Murphy

We fell in love with Capitola the first time we visited. It is such a wonderful beach town, the perfect mix of sun, sand, shopping and dining. Everything you need or want is steps away. Sometimes we visit, and never get in our car. Other times, we take the kids to the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, to famous surf spots...or visit antique shops in Soquel! We think it's the perfect spot to get away for a romantic weekend, or to enjoy with family and friends!

                                                          Tara M.

                                                          My family had a great time and and we absolutely loved the location. This is our second stay and it didn't disappoint.

                                                          Great house

                                                          Christy F.

                                                          The house was perfect!! Very nice in every way. We all loved how the house was decorated. The location couldn’t have been better! Thank you, christy

                                                          Beautifully decorated and comfortable for families!

                                                          Kathryn K.

                                                          We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Capitola and the house at 225 San Jose Avenue!


                                                          Starr H.

                                                          This place was so perfect for our family. We will definitely be renting it again. Our twins came unexpectedly early and the owners where very accommodating and working with us as it was a last minute find. It was in the perfect location and extra cozy as family came in to visit. I would recommend this place anytime.

                                                          Great home away from home

                                                          Renie G.

                                                          With grown children all over the country, we were looking for a place to stay not too far from home for a short getaway. We found it with this gem. There was plenty of space for all of us, and it was a treat to be so close to restaurants, shopping, and the beach. Michelle was quick to respond to our few questions and made us feel welcome. The house was clean and well stocked with everything we could need. Would definitely come back for another stay.

                                                          Perfect location

                                                          Antoinette F.

                                                          We enjoyed our stay. It's a perfect location for walking around downtown. We enjoyed the backyard and had our family all gathered around from two houses to enjoy breakfast. One think I would add is a little more amenities in the kitchen, aluminum foil or bags, thing like that.
