A few steps to the sand, this historic beach cottage harkens backs to its roots in the early 1900s.

Built in 1910, renovated in 2002, and redesigned in 2019.

In the heart of Capitola Village, it is surrounded by the boutiques, restaurants, music and the romance of the most charming beach town in all California.

Set up like like a cozy hotel:
* High-quality furniture, mattresses, and bedding
* Private covered parking
* Self check-in
* Beach towels, chairs, tent
* Quality bath products

Other things to note
We're very lucky to have dedicated parking at the cottage, but the alley to the garage is very narrow, so it can be tricky to get in and out, especially when there's another vehicle parked in the other spot. So it may be difficult/impossible to fit anything larger than a mid-sized SUV.

There's also street parking all around the cottage, but can be difficult to find a spot on weekends - you might have to circle a few times. It is metered between 8am and 8pm. There's also a couple paid lots right next to the cottage, where you can park all day.
