About Cheryl Busick

We love Capitola and find it the perfect place to re charge. We have owned another rental for about 5 years and enjoy sharing our home.

Why Cheryl Busick chose Capitola

We feel in love with this charming property the moment we walked in. It's so light and we love how the house centers around the view.

What makes this house unique

The big plus for us was how we could enjoy our view from the inside of the house and from a large deck. We love sitting out looking over the village to the wharf. We also enjoy the courtyard and other outdoor spaces. We also love walking to town , the beach and Gayles Bakery. Having a private parking space and two permits is great.

Perfect Place in Capitola

  • 5 of 5

We were working for a month in Watsonville and rented this home. It was perfect for us! Beautiful views, easy walk into the village, easy walk to Gayle's! The fireplace heats the house when needed, open the doors in the late afternoon to cool it down a bit! Could not say enough wonderful things about this home!

Capitola Cozy

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for a more perfect cottage in our favorite beach town. Up the hill enough for the peace and quiet we wanted and perfect views of the ocean and wharf and close enough to be able to walk into town several times a day to the beach, wonderful restaurants, and shopping. Cheryl and David were perfect hosts who made our stay even better than we expected. We hope to return next year.

What a view!

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Capitola for 3 years and think we found the perfect home to rent. The house was comfortable and well-equipped and the view from the deck was worth a million dollars! Can't wait to return...

Amazing Home!

  • 5 of 5

I spent a month in this wonderful home, and had the best time. The size was perfect for the 2 - 7 people we had during any given time. All the beds are comfortable, the furnishings are updated, and the kitchen and bathrooms were well-stocked. The best part of the house is the deck that overlooks the ocean and Capitola village. It is a large enough area to seat 8+ people, with comfy seating and an overhang that protects from the sun or moisture.

Not only was the view spectacular, but you are within walking distance to the Village & beach (there are stairs two homes down). We also walked to the local favorite Gayle's almost every other day. Basically, you can park and not need your car EVER. The owner was a pleasure to work with, which is so important when you are making a one-month commitment. I am already planning a 2017 rental of this gem!

Perfect retreat!

  • 5 of 5

The photos accurately depicted the property. The home was clean and well organized. The kitchen had everything needed to prepare complete meals. The bedrooms were very quiet and comfortable. We spent a lot of time sitting out on the deck and enjoying the hypnotizing view of the ocean. While I was unable to make phone calls w/ my phone, texting worked just fine. The owner replied to my texts in a timely and very helpful manner. Be sure to take walks to the cliffs to the left of the house to see early morning surfers and seals. Just two houses past the house, to the right, are very convenient steps down to restaurants, shops, and the beach, which get you there in only several minutes. It is so nice, after spending time on a possibly busy excursion with the streets filled with shoppers, to return to your retreat in such a short time and enjoy the solitude on the deck. Two different worlds! For our anniversary we celebrated a delicious, and well served meal, at Shadowbrook Restaurant. We had some great meals, and "perfect" margaritas, at Paradise Beach Grill. We drove north, just beyond Santa Cruz, to Davenport Beach to search for sea glass. Bring good walking shoes for that; it was one of the highlights of our excursions. I have never seen such gigantic sea foam blowing off the ocean, dancing along the beach-wow! I highly recommend a massage in Santa Cruz at Luma Yoga on Center Street. Ask for Gemma Depolo and you won't be disappointed. Thank-you to the owners for such attention to detail. I would stay longer next time and look forward to our return.

Walk a block to the center of Capitola Village. Great dining, wine bars , and shopping! A couple more minutes to the beach and pier. Gayle's Bakery is also a must! (about a 10 minute walk)

Bike or drive to The Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk - an amusement park right on the beach.
