Description

Vaquita House is a remodeled cottage steps from Privates Beach, our gated neighborhood beach. We will provide you with a key to access this unique private beach and great uncrowded surf spot. A five minute walk along the ocean will take you to shopping and dining in Capitola Village and awesome Capitola Beach. Famous surf spots the 'Hook' and 'Pleasure Point' are also just a short walk away. A surfer's paradise; walk to your own break. Surfboad and wetsuit racks are right outside your door in a secure patio area for easy access.

Vaquita House comes complete with a full kitchen, stainless steel appliances, and everything you need to prepare a gourmet meal right at home. The house has hardwood floors in the main living space and carpeted bedrooms. Surf themed art work fill the house with a laid back vacation feel. Each of the two bedrooms opens out to the private landscaped rear patio. Relax in the sun with the outdoor dining table surrounded by flowers and birds, including hummingbirds. The patio deck is perfect for barbecuing on the grill or relaxing with a glass of wine.

Less than a ten minute walk to Capitola Wharf, Capitola Village, Capitola Beach, Pleasure Point, great shopping, and fine dining. Vaquita House is a short drive to downtown Santa Cruz and the beach boardwalk, 30 minutes to Monterey, and 90 minutes to San Francisco. Perfect for a romantic getaway or family beach vacation.
