About Denise and Richard LaRock

We grew up in the Bay area and spent many weekends in the Santa Cruz/Capitola area. Fell in love with the Beach boardwalk in Santa Cruz as a child. We have great memories of this area and always wanted to get back here to relax, and enjoy all that Capitola has to offer.

Denise and Richard LaRock purchased this house in 2015

Why Denise and Richard LaRock chose Central Coast

While looking for a vacation home in the area, I found this great place and just had to see it. We hope to enjoy this home for many years with our family and friends. If you stay here you will surely see why we fell in love with this unique property.

What makes this house unique

Close to fine dining, wine tasting, great shopping. So close to the beach you can smell the salt in the air.

Great Beach Stay

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay. There were four of us (two couples), and we had wonderful time. The house big enough we didn't get in each others way. It is real close to the Esplanade. Everything is within walking distance. We love Capitola for little beach town charm. The house was very neat and clean. We went out to eat every night, but the kitchen looked like it was pretty well stocked. We had one minor problem when first arrived. We called the owner, who very pleasant and problem was immediately resolved. We would definitely stay here again.

Best mini vacation ever! !

  • 5 of 5

Denise has this wonderful house that is fully equipped with everything! ! And I mean EVERYTHING! my best suprise was when I found that she even had a roll of aluminum foil. I forgot to pack mine and boy was I delighted to find it in one of the cabinets:). The house has a luxury of anything your heart desires. A quick walk to the coffee shop which was our favorite thing to do each morning. A quick walk to the resturants and shops as well as to the classic flats by the ocean. I was so immersed with capitola that I did not want to come back home! !

Thank you Denise for such a wonderful time. I will always come back to capitola. Thank you for being so detail oriented wit the house and the booking process. You are the best!

Wonderful Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

One of the best homes we've stayed at. It's true, the location is a big part in it, but the home itself is updated, clean and comfortable. We came with our three year old son and one year old daughter and I was worried it might be too small for us, but not at all. There was a good supply of games and movies to help keep them entertained, plus all the toys, towels and chairs we needed when we went to the beach. We found the owners to be very thoughtful and considerate and it was clear they genuinely wanted us to enjoy our stay. Capitola is one of our happy places (we got married there) so we hope to come back and stay here again!

Great location and comfortable stay.

  • 5 of 5

My high school girlfriends and I were looking for a place to stay close to the beach and dining so we could walk everywhere we wanted to explore. Denise and Richards beach house was the perfect place for us. The beds were comfortable and the front room and kitchen area perfect for us to gather and hang out together. We found everything we needed in the updated kitchen.

Our only issue was the parking situation. We did have to move one of our vehicles to several different spots and my car got ticketed for my tires being just a pinch over the white lines on the street, so be aware the parking police are sticklers for that.

We would love to stay again on our next getaway.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice review of our place, I am so sorry you got a ticket. That is a first for us. Parking has always been a problem in Capitola Village, sometimes they run shuttles in and out of the Village during special events. Best Regards, Denise and Richard

Amazing !!!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on August 20, 2016 first time to Capitola. We were so amazed at how beautiful and organized it was. Denise and Richard have thought of everything you could ever need. The condo was clean and beds comfortable, my favorite part were the pillows. The extra care they put out like tums and the candles. I can not say enough, it was delightful! We were sad to leave, however plan to revisit as often as possible!!!

Love Capitola!

  • 4 of 5

Great layout for two couples or a family with a teen (like us). Location is great just a very short walk to the heart of Capitola. We spent most of our time exploring the town and doing side trips. The house is well equipped with beach supplies and a beach wagon to get to the beach just a few blocks away. Lots of other nice touches like games, toiletries and tasteful beachy decor. Owners were very responsive and easy to communicate with. So glad we stayed in Capitola instead of Santa Cruz or Monterey.
