If you like to stay at your Grandmother's cottage, then this is the place for you. I am not opposed to older properties with history, as I have stayed at numerous B and B's that have history and are not "new," I prefer B and B's because of their character and charm. This property is in a fabulous location with... More

Loved this place! My girlfriend and I decided to have a romantic getaway on a whim. We got on google and searched for a B&B around the Bay Area/Santa Cruz and came across this place. We stayed in the 'Rose Garden' room. We had a great view of the ocean and could see people surfing from the yard outside the... More

Shared a two bedroom with family and the only complaint we had was the lack of a corkscrew or bottle opener. Thankfully we never travel without one of each. Beautiful view of the water. Some of the wooden steps along the property were a little less than sterdy, seemed like water damage which is to be expected in such an... More

Love this Bed & Breakfast! The Front Desk woman was so nice & made us feel at home. A romantic room & comfortable bedding! Ocean view from the windows & a beautiful delicious continental breakfast brought to our room in the morning! Loved the path into Capitola village. We did not want to leave & are planning our next stay!

Driving onto the property I got a sense of excitement! The grounds were well kept and the Amazing white building had a sense of Historic stories I believe could be told! From the Front office to the amenities here on the property, I can say this was well worth staying here than a hotel. The views off the cliff of... More

This was an amazing B & B on estate property. Right on the ocean, beautiful cottages and landscaping. Very quiet, in a nice neighborhood for taking walks and within walking distance to Capitola Village where there are wonderful restaurants and shops. The Hideaway Suite comes with a private courtyard and enclosed hot tub which was very nice.

Beautiful views, walking paths and a great property. So quiet and peaceful,loved our accommodations and the morning breakfast. We had such a relaxing time at the Monarch. The staff was great and at our finger tips 24/7. My son said her had not been that relaxed in a very long long time.

I stayed in the Ocean View room that is a lovely room overlooking the beautiful Monterey Bay landscape. It's one of the best views on the property with a small patio and table to enjoy your morning tea or coffee. The staff delivered a continental breakfast at my chosen time. If you want to be away from the bustle of... More

Shared the Carriage House with one daughter and her husband just before Christmas. It was perfect for the four of us, but seemed to expand as needed when two other daughters and families came by for a visit. Cozy, but a lovely place to spend a little pre Christmas time together. Kitchen was simple, but all we needed. Beds were... More
