We loved staying here. The room was clean, warm, quiet and the bed was so comfortable, with nice hot water for bathing. The most friendly service from start to finish was very much appreciated. And breakfast was brought to us at the time we discussed and was delicious!
We can't wait to come back and stay longer next visit!

We stayed in the ocean view room and had such a nice time. Great view, lovely breakfast served in the room, nice trail to the beach. Couldn't have been nicer! Birds and seals just over the bluff in the bay. Otr daughters came over from Mountain view to check out the place and they were also impressed.

My daughter and son-in-law held their wedding rehearsal, wedding and reception at Monarch Cove. We had gone to see it a year beforehand, and it seemed impressive then but wow, the wedding weekend was even more so. The dramatic setting overlooking Capitola Bay is stunning all by itself. I like how the gardens are well-tended but not overly fussy as they are some places--you know you are outdoors but every tree and shrub isn't manicured to death, and you can take pleasure in actually sitting outside at one of the many tables. The wedding couple rented out all the rooms, so we got to see quite a few of them, each one different in terms of decoration, configuration, space, etc, but all of the same high quality coziness. My only criticism is the use of powerful chlorine/cleaning compounds to clean the rooms. It seems at odds in an area that strives to be green: since the rooms are cleaned so often, they could easily clean up the rooms with more natural cleansers, avoiding the fumes left behind. But that is minor in the overall scope of things. The staff was very nice and helpful, delivering a continental breakfast each morning. We plan to come back soon!

My cousin held her wedding here the first weekend of November, and while Monarch Cove had nothing to do with the amazingly perfect weather, their venue is outstanding.. Fantastic ocean views, nicely appointed rooms, extremely friendly staff, what's not to like. I highly recommend this B and B.

We had an amazing weekend here for a friend's wedding. The property is beautiful and the staff is so nice! They really made it a great experience from the start to finish. My husband and I had a cute cottage that was dog friendly which made our traveling so much easier. We will be back soon, Thank you guys so much for a great weekend!

We had a wonderful one night stay at the Monarch Cove Inn! The staff were so accommodating, the room was perfect, and breakfast in our room was romantic and delicious. We will definitely stay here again when we come back. Capitola is a wonderful little town to explore and we hope to return soon!
