Family Time in the Spring!
This is our family's 2nd time renting this charming house. The location to beach & shops is merely steps away. Beds/baths were suitable for our group (10). Only change would be to have more seating (sectional perhaps) in the living room for movie watching as it rained one whole day. One of dining chairs was broken, and the dishwasher door is frustrating. But the house is comfortable otherwise. The retreat out by the river was beautiful! Don't miss a sunset there!
riverside picnic area was great since the weather was perfect.
Good things - location on the river right in the center of the village, house nicely laid out - plenty of room, nicely decorated, comfortable beds, super riverside picnic area with a view of the bridge and lagoon. A 3rd off season night free was a big plus!
The negatives - if the weather was poor you'd still have a good location for shopping, restaurants etc. but the only a view is of the alley. Having one parking spot for a place that sleeps 10 is iffy. The refrigerator and freezer didn't work and we didn't realize that until the second day - the microwave wasn't working either. A maintenance person came out promptly when we called but we had to throw out a lot of pricey food. Would we rent it again? I expect we will - on the whole, people were pleased. Read more

Great Capitola get-away
This house exceeded my expectations for comfort and location. It literally is only a 2-minute walk to the beach and village with coffee shops, cute shops, and beach-side dining. The 5 bedrooms were perfect for my mother, 3 sisters, and myself - it was definitely a plus to find a house where we could not only have our own beds, but our own rooms. The house was very clean and updated with plenty of skylights, very comfortable furnishings, a complete kitchen, and a gas fireplace that was wonderful for taking the chill off of the cool October mornings. The house is not actually on the riverfront, but the patio which is on the riverfront is a few quick steps away and the view is lovely. We enjoyed watching the birds with our coffee in the mornings and wine in the evenings. The staff at Beach House Rentals were absolutely great to work with, very professional, friendly, and helpful.

Wow! Thank you for your fantastic review. We truly appreciate your feedback and we are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay. We hope to see you again soon!
This house is very sentimental to me because I used to live in the house on the river side. It was like living a dream! To wake up and see the ducks floating down river as the waves crash on the nearby beach, is sheer bliss!!!
This house is perfect in terms of its proximity to Capitola Village, the beach and Depot Hill. There is so much to do within walking distance! The house is clean, comfortable and has all the necessary comfort measures. The view of the beach from the front yard along the river can't be beat!!! Get your paddle board and paddle down river to the beach, carry your board across the sand and you can float or paddle for hours on the gentle ocean. There are restaurants, ice cream parlors, and boutique shops everywhere! Wednesday evenings are filled with jazz music on the beach during summer months. If you are a runner, you can view the local neighborhoods (Jewel Box area and Depot Hill) and run along the coast for a good 5 mile workout. I did not get in my car for the entire length of my stay...Love it!!! Read more

Amazing House with a Great Location
The home is amazing... Even better than the pictures! Reading the past reviews I had hesitations because all the negative feedback about the parking. We had 3 cars with us and nobody had any problems with parking. There is a parking lot a very short distance for a very minimal fee. The only negative thing I have to say is about the rental agency Beach House Rentals... We had 3 family's when we booked and everyone wanted to pay their share on cards. It was not the easiest thing to do paying with 3 cards they acted like it was a huge hassle to do so. Other than that we had a great time and would defiantly stay again! Read more

Love this house
This was our second time staying in this house. We all loved it and made many wonderful memories. This house fit my family and my sister's family perfectly. We enjoyed the back BBQ/patio area every night! We hope to all return in this same house one day! Thanks for an awesome time and great customer service BeachHouse rentals! Read more

Fabulous Rental in Capitola
This home is absolutely beautiful and very clean.
The outside picnic area on the river was fabulous and the location was perfect. Parking definitely was an issue, but there are lots close by. We had a "girls getaway" with eight women in attendance. It was perfect. Read more

Definately plan to return
This rental was perfect. Plenty of room for my 16-year-old and 20-year-old daughters to celebrate their birthdays at the beach with friends. We live in Gilroy so friends and family came and went throughout the week and it is very close to everything... Shopping, restaurants, and entertainment of every kind. The house is older but very well kept and charming (original brass and crytal door knobs, etc.) The river patio was great for our canoe(docked right their) and night-time fires in the firepit.
I gave it 4 stars because of parking and garbage. It really needs the option of 2 parking passes. Between everyone who came and went we all left with 4 parking tickets among us, and parking in Capitola is really organized crime. The outside garbage cans were full when we arrived and don't go out till Monday. Bring your own cleaning stuff (counter cleaner,etc.)- there is none in the beach house.
All-in-all I would go again and reserve an extra $200 for parking and parking tickets. Read more

Lovely weekend in on the river in Capitola
We were two families in town for a soccer tournament over Memorial Day weekend. The house was just as described - comfortable, well-appointed, a great location. When we weren't at games, we could walk to the beach or town in a couple of minutes. It was very quiet despite being near the main street.
We barbecued on the river one evening and also used the well stocked kitchen.
The only thing that might be nice would be wifi as we were trying to check on game schedules.
All in all - a great place and very reasonable for the number of people it sleeps. Read more

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay. We are thrilled to hear that the accommodations were suitable for your group. We like your suggestion regarding adding wireless internet.
Quaint stay with perfect location!
Rented this during my wedding week for my out of town friends--everyone loved it. The house was great for a big group (easy to have alone time, or congregate in the kitchen/living room for group sessions) -- very fun! Location couldn't have been better, and Capitola village and surrounding area has everything you need for a great vacation! Would definitely rent here again. Read more

First and foremost, congrats! We are so happy that this beach house suited the needs of your friends and family. We hope to see you again in Capitola.
It was my daughter's Sweet 16 birthday party and it was great. The location was great, although the parking was not, there was a store in walking distance to get things I forgot. The house was clean and the furtinure was reasonabley new. The girls turned it into a big slumber/beach party. We used the BBQ for the dinner and the pit in the back to make s'mores. There was plenty of silverware and appliances all worked...no headaches (except which cool little coffee shop to get coffee from in the mornings). The best part of the rental was how big the place was, there was 9 of us and we were not right on top of each other. One of the Tv's didn't work (the one in my room) and parking was like something out of San Francisco, but we got around it.
I highly recommend this house to my friends and we are thinking of a family reunion here too.
lovely and functional house near downtown and the river
lovely house, rooms situated such that our large group of 9 all had personal spaces and enough room in common spaces that we could enjoy each others' company; owner very cordial and helpful and was on property at same time as us, allowed us access to picnic and garden area on river, barbecue, etc;
easy walking to center of town and beaches, helpful if there are multigenerations (young and elderly); parking in the neighborhood is tricky, you can ask for extra passes for neighborhood overnight parking if available; overall excellent experience, 9 of 9 were happy!! Read more

One of our best Vacations
My whole family loved staying in this house in the wonderful town of Capitola. It was a better place than I imagined. We loved it so much we re-booked it for next year! Location is awesome, although parking was a challange at first but I think we now know what to do. I would also recommend Wi-Fi and an extra garbage can as well. Other than that, all was perfect. We made some really good memories thanks to this wonderful home we stayed in Read more

317 Riverview Enjoyed By all!!
We very much enjoyed our second summer with Beach House Rentals!
317 Riverview was a very modern, clean, convenient, spacious, and well stocked with the bathroom/kitchen essentials. The location was great being close to both the downtown and the beach.
"Recommendations": Install Wi-Fi system. Add additional outside garbage container. Change upstairs bedroom with a "full" bed and put in two single beds for kids.
We again had a fun time in Capitola and we will be back next year!!

Cozy house near town
When I first started by experience with Beach House Rentals I was very disappointed in their lack of professionalism. No one ever answered the phone and if I left a message the time lapsed before a return call was made was way too long. I faxed a signed copy of the contract as requested and got a confirmation of its receipt. Months later I got a call that the contract was not in their possession. I assume it was lost at the office. We got through that issue and all seemed okay. When we were in Capitola in January we went by 317 Riverview and were disappointed that is was not on the river side of the property. My fault for not confirming exactly where it was situated. We went into the office to chat with those working and got a very chilly welcome. The person we talked to made us feel like we were imposing and almost trespassing. We left with a very bad impression, but we needed the house and you were the only game in town, so we stuck it out.
As to the house itself, we were very satisified. Once we got hot water, the rest went well.
Our final contact, and I am sorry I forgot her name, who called us before we arrived was great. She was so much more friedly and professional. She renewed our faith in your company. It might have been Sara. When it was discovered that some jackets were left in a closet she called to let us know and we picked them up at the office. That time, everyone there was very friendly. We also left some items in the freezer and some pillows, and retrieving them was not a problem.
The location to town was so convenient. We were out our door and in town right away. We all loved that.
I think it would be wise for you to inform your renters from the first correspondence that "Riverview" does mean a view of the river.
Great home & Location
This home was exactly what I had hoped for in location and size for a "Celebration of Life" gathering. It was close to shopping, restuarants, beach,and wharf. It was enjoyable to just park the car and walk. We had friends from various locations with multiple cars. Public parking at that time of year was ample & close. The parking permit at the house worked well to load and unload. The neighbors were friendly & helpful. It was very quiet. The enclosed patio area was all ours since no one was renting the unit behind. The riverfront area was not exactly behind the house but down the walkway with a gate through the patio. It was enjoyed by all. The kitchen area could have been a little cleaner, some dishes needed to be washed before use. Some guests had a little trouble with the way the faucets worked in the bathrooms. But that was not bothersome. I would have liked to see a few more cleaning products & trash bags (only 1) left for use. I had a full house, so I did bring extra supplies for the bathrooms and kitchen. A few items did not work when we arrive and maintenance quickly took care of the issues and also helped us with the bar-b-que. We had a very relaxing and great time. The location was perfect for us. We enjoyed all of the outside areas including the front porch. The World Series playoffs were in process so the guys enjoyed the big screen also. Reservations and planning were easy. I enjoyed working with Louise to make this special celebration of my husband's life perfect. We really enjoyed it. Thank you for the opportunity to rent this vacation home. Read more

It was sooo easy to stay here.
No fuss no muss...check in, check out...easy. Found everything we needed...in the house as well as in the area. Very nice. We had a great time. The dishwasher was no big deal...open the oven door ...much better.
The perfect house for a bride and her bridal party
Can't say enough amazing things about this house. It had such a lovely feel to it. 7 girls all getting ready for a wedding had plenty of room to run around and plenty of room for all of our clothes!
You can't get much better as far as location. The creekside patio was just lovely and when we had just a few questions or concerns...Beach House Rentals assisted us as if they were standing by!
Very professional and friendly company that never makes you feel like you're wasting their time no matter what.
I highly recommend both the company (Louise is awesome!) and this lovely home. Read more

memories are made of this
We rented this lovely home for 4 nights. We had my two daughters and their husbands and one 4 month old baby. The place was perfect. We never had to get in our car, great coffee shop around the corner for breakfasts, wonderful restaurants within 5 minute walk for lunches and dinners. I looked up one day and was watching my two son in laws tossing frisbee on the beach, one daughter and I were playing paddle ball, and my other daughter was holding her baby. Picture perfect, life does not get better than this. Last day, kids gone, friends dropped down, it rained, no problem. We talked, laughed, had lunch on a restaurant on the warf, then watched a movie I had brought, kicked back, enjoyed, and later drove home. The point being, sun, rain, friends, family, grown, babies, it doesn't matter. Anyone can enjoy this place. it will be our destination of choice in Capitola for years to come. Happy vibes in this place. Read more

We all loved the house
We all loved the Riverview house. It was nicely appointed, well stocked with everything we needed. It was spacious enough for all of us to coexist nicely. The only complaint is the dishwasher which doesn't work well at all. Can't open the dishwasher door enough to get dishes in an out and even after that, it just didn't clean. But that is only the very mildest of inconveniences in an otherwise really great house. We didn't realize how pleasant the river-fronted patio would be, but it was truly sooo relaxing. Even though we were there on a very crowded weekend, we were out of the frenzy just enough. Can't say enough good things about the location and the house itself. Parking was tolerable, it was just as described.. Read more

excellent home and location, fit our needs
This home was layed out well for family with ample rooms. The river setting was a great place to meet and visit. The location is excellent and provide close proximity to the village without the noise. The only issue is parking which is an issue for the whole city not just this property.

Can't get enough of the beach!
Great Location for Capitola
The ups: We were a few steps from the village and beach. The house had 5 bedrooms great for kids. The house was clean. The downs: Parking parking parking was a pain. The living area was not very big for a 5 bedroom house. We had trouble with our reservation which made our stay at this home shorter then we had planned. No private outdoor area. Read more

Great stay, despite minor inconveniences
This house is in an excellent location, easy to walk to anywhere you'd like to get to in Capitola! The sleeping accommodations were very nice and kept 9 of us very comfortable. The parking wasn't a huge issue for us, though only one car can park in front of the building. Additional parking was a 5 minute walk for us. Our only drawback to this house was the kitchen. The dishwasher doesn't open all the way due to the large size of the newer oven. The knives were terrible for prepping food, and we ran out of dishwasher detergent on our last night there - had to do the rest of the dishes that night and all the next morning by hand. Also, the toilet paper holder in one of the bathrooms falls apart when you pull the roll, so is basically useless.
Again, I would like to emphasize that these were minor inconveniences, relative to the quality of the rest of our stay. Even so, fixing some of these issues (TP holder, knife sharpening, detergent) should be relatively easy to do and would make the stay much nicer.
On a very positive note, the outdoor patio bordering the river is lovely in nice weather. Read more

This property had a great centralized location in Capitola. There was plenty of room for our family of 4 adults and 3 adult children. When we arrived, there was dirty laundry stacked in the living room from the previous occupants. Also, the bathrooms could have been cleaner. We appreciated beach house rental staff showing up and taking care of this. Also appreciated the extra parking pass that was provided.
The gas stove in one of the upstairs bedrooms never worked and the stove in the living room stopped working the day before we left. The pocket door to the left of the entrance kept falling off its track . The living room furniture was stained and dirty--needs a good cleaning. The carpet in the dining area was a safety hazzard and after several people tripped, we finally rolled it up. The coffee pot was a puzzle and we had to press the button 3X for each pot of coffee that we made.
All this being said, we believe that these "complaints" are easily remedied and we would recommend this property to friends. Read more

Mercer Island, Wa
A good weekend in Capatola
Great time had by our family at a nephew's wedding. The home was really that---everyone found a place to fit, it was clean and a good place to wind down.
We'd do it all over again.
Great weekend getaway
This was a great house! Everything is so close, that once we parked the car, we didn't use it until we left. Street parking is the only downfall of this property but the location made up for it. We are already planning a return trip to this home!
Great location, clean, comfortable, great size for large family, however, parking availability is a negative.
Very clean, comfortable and homey
We had 8 people, 4 generations, from 5 to 87 and this house accomodated all nicely. My 87 year old mother enjoyed sitting on the patio by the river and chatting with folks passing by, The kids and grandkids loved the short walk to the beach. There was a little grocery, a coffee shop and many restarants and shops within a short walk .We enjoyed Zola's, Gayles bakery, and the place at the end of the pier that plays music on the balcony. We used the large lot behind the police station which is 2 blocks away for the extra cars and that wasn't to bad. After walking all over town, I didnt see any place I would rather stay. The house was slightly removed so was quiet, but a short walk to everything! Loved it.
50th Anniversary Weekend
Very clean house, in a great location.
Could use a hose to wash off the beach sand.
Parking is difficult as it is in all of Capitola.
An early Mother's Day
I had the best vacation ever with my children the days that we spent in this home in Capitola. The house was wonderful, cheerful and bright. It had everything you might possible need and an outdoor shower to wash the sand off the kids before entering the house. My family of 12 had plenty of room, with each family enjoying their own comfortable bed and the showers were great! Not only did we enjoy the home, but the backyard where we barbecued and drank coffee by the river. Days were spent going back and forth to the beach, less than 1/2 a block away. We want to stay again next year. I highly recommend this home.
charming house with personality
8 of us (2 families) shared the house for 4 days -- it has charm, a great location (near enough to stores to walk out to get coffee and pastries in the AM, far enough away to have quiet). The garden on the river is a real plus -- we had a cozy fire in the fire pit one night as we ate dinner outdoors. The place had enough room (and plates and towells,etc), and we were delighted with the whole setup. We did have two cars, so had to put one at the (expensive) public parking lot in town ($20 a day), but the lot was a 3 minute walk and quite convenient. The other car we parked right on the street with the "parking pass" provided. We were very very happy with the house.
This was a perfectly charming cottage that comfortably slept all eight of us.
The service we received from our agent was always quick and courteous.
The location of the house was perfect. We parked our car once and walked everywhere we needed for the next three days.
The amenities were great. Although the living room video hook ups are a bit confusing. The only real problem was loading the dishwasher. As you can imagine with 8 people we used it a lot. It was really tough to load because of its location and the way it is blocked by the oven.
The location of the house is perfect. We had a fun and relaxing stay. We are hoping to do it again next year!
