About the property

4 Bedroom, 3 Bath, Sleeps 10, Upscale Retreat

This house is a monthly rental. Luxury OceanFront property for a dream vacation. Enjoy panoramic views of the Monterey Bay from every room in the house-- and walk only one block and stairs to downtown Capitola and the Beach. Shops, wine bars, and surf await you:)

House sits on the bluff, and every room is designed to take advantage of the spectacular views. The indoor-outdoor lifestyle is fantastic. Large outdoor patio and lawn faces ocean with several seating areas. There are two sectionals for conversation and cocktails, chairs around the firepit, dining set, and a lounge for tanning. The entire first floor has an open floor plan with views of the Bay-- you will see nothing but water!

Living decor is chic. Modern mixed with glam. A gas burning fireplace will keep you cozy and 55' flat screen SmartTV is perfect for late night movies. Beautiful kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need for entertaining.

Master suite is Zen! A king bed faces huge windows open to the ocean on both sides of the room. Fall asleep listening to the lap of the waves. Guest room with a new queen bed is a peaceful white, with gorgeous breathtaking views. Children's room has two trundle beds. So, sleeping for 2 easily converts to sleeping for 4. Kids also have their own 40' SmartTV for in-bed movies! Even the kids have a view!

4th bedroom, was originally a sunroom. Windows line the wall with nothing but ocean blue. Watch surfers from dusk til dawn. This room also has a 40' SmartTV and a desk for work or writing.

This house is ideal for a quiet retreat, an artist's escape and inspiration, or a great spot to "work from home" for a month, while you and your family enjoy all that Capitola and the surrounding areas have to offer.

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 breathtaking views, outdoor sport, 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!

Michelle Murphy purchased this house in 2014

Unbelievable Views and Ideal Location!

  • 5 of 5

The views from this house are unbelievable! Every evening we wined and dined on the large patio with our own unobstructed view of the entire Monterey Bay. And, what's not to love about a fire pit, and s'mores under the stars! The house was both beautiful and comfortable, for us and our kids.

Everything we needed for entertaining or enjoying the beach we found: toys, chairs, boards, wetsuits, bikes and beach towels! And what a perfect location. The house sits atop a quiet bluff, but is just one block and a set of stairs to downtown Capitola. There we wandered thru many quaint shops, and restaurants. We enjoyed cocktails on the deck at Zelda's, a great meal at Paradise Grill, and of course the historic and romantic Shadowbrook restaurant.

This is a place you will not want to leave! Peaceful and beautiful.

We loved 100 Central - great house and location!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at 100 Central. The house is so well done, accommodates a large family and it's so easy to keep clean. The owners have not missed a thing. You feel right at home as soon as you open the front door. The yard is so much fun with multiple sitting areas and an incredible view of the ocean and the bay – and outdoor shower. We were very active visiting family and doing things in the area – and always so happy to come "home” and relax. You cannot beat the location. Our boys surfed every day and walked down the stairs. It's quiet and out of the fray of all the activity in Capitola but just a short walk to dip in when you want. We hope to rent the home again soon!

Dream Escape!

  • 5 of 5

This home and vacation was the PERFECT combination of peace, relaxation and entertainment.

The views of the Monterey Bay from the patio, and every room in the house are breathtaking.

Just lounging oceanfront on the patio, under a white umbrella, felt like a spa vacation!

Yes, it was February, but we had several days over 75 degrees!!

At night, we sat around the fire pit with wine and friends and talked for hours. With downtown Capitola,

just a block away we had so much fun visiting the boutiques, winebars, and many restaurants.

Of course, the beach was spectacular and it was easy to rent boards and wetsuits downtown.

Every room in the house was beautifully decorated, which really made me feel like we had "gotten away".

And, everything we could possibly need for relaxing or entertaining was there. We hope to come

back to this house again and again!

Fantastic Ocean Front home!

  • 5 of 5

We spent Thanksgiving here this year and what a wonderful time we had! This house is AMAZING!!! It is exactly like the pictures. Every detail has been thought out and it is a great home away from home. The house is well stocked with everything that you need from the kitchen to the bedrooms. It is all top notch! The views are incredible both inside and out. We spent many hours by the fire pit in the backyard and often had passerby's offer to join us it is so inviting! It was so much fun watching the sea otters and surfers from just outside the backyard. The walk down to Capitola was a fun adventure and strolling around the restaurants and shops was enjoyable for the whole family. The owner Michelle is so helpful and very easy to work with. We would definitley love to rent again!

Relax and Enjoy!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful and relaxing place to recharge, refresh and renew. The house is beautifully furnished and practical. We had everything we needed to stay in and entertain, indoors or outside. The view of the ocean and sky was just as stated; wide-open, breathtakingly beautiful and dynamic. So nice to sit and and just stare... We also got in some great workouts and had fun walking down the stairs to Capitola and all the restaurants, cafes, shopping and beach it offers. Its the kind of place you wish you could live all the time. Convenient yet feels special and serene like vacation. I can't wait to visit again! As a many time visitor to Capitola, this is the best spot I have stayed or can imagine staying for a family, or a romance or a group of friends!
