“Santa Cruz get away”
Reviewed 14 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

My family and I enjoyed our get away at the Vaquita house near Pleasure Point. We loved riding our bikes over to see the surfers at 41st Avenue and down E. Cliff Drive. The house had everything we needed and was clean, well decorated, and comfortable. The location is perfect and Jon was prompt with email and text information. Thanks for letting us stay!

“all that we were looking for”

We were a family of four looking for a quiet beach neigbourhood with easy access to the beach, good food and awesome bike riding. Each day included a easy ride to the hills, beach and strawberry fields. We have to admit that family road rides are in access of 100 km a day. Opal House and neigbouhood provided a perfect oasis at the end of the day exploring by bike, car or foot. The owners personalized our stay before we arrived with solid fun information. They were available if we had a question and were not made to feel like we were imposing but just friends visiting. An excellent choice! We would go back again.

We just stayed at Vaquita House last weekend. The location was amazing for a family. We have a middle schooler and a toddler and there was plenty to do with each. We spent time at Privates beach (about a block away) when we wanted some down time and good boogie boarding and then went into Capitola for the beach and walking along the pier (about 10 mins walk max) when we wanted a little more action. The house is very well cared for and the owners are fantastic to communicate with.

“Home away from home! A Wonderful home in a wonderful Santa Cruz/Capitola location!”

My husband and I just spent the Labor day weekend at this beautiful place and it was a memorable experience. Aside from the Begonia Festival and Sand Castle contest happening that weekend in Capitola, everything was perfect! The home is tastefully decorated and furnished. The kitchen had all the utensils and supplies we needed to cook. They also have a washer and dryer. There were plenty of linens and beds are very comfortable. Both rooms have doors that open to the marvelous backyard where we spent most of our time eating our meals outside. The location was fantastic since it is just a 10 minute walk to Capitola Village/boardwalk, 3 minutes to a private beach (which owners will provide you with access key)
The property owners are friendly, helpful, great, loving and kind-hearted people. They made us feel welcome and made sure we have everything we needed for our stay. They took their time out to give us information as to places to go and see, how to go around the place, etc. And that they are very easy to reach when we needed anything…as in anything. They really made us feel at home. We can feel that the home is blessed with love, joy and care by the owners.
There was never a dull moment and bad day at this beach home. WE LOVE IT!!! There is so much you can do – walking and biking trail, massage places, shopping, eating out, night life, beach activities. The 2 days we spent there was not enough. We need a week to enjoy Santa Cruz and get all the relaxation in. The place is really a home away from home. This is definitely our place in Santa Cruz.
