My family surprised me with a stay in the Carriage House at the Monarch Cove Inn. What a treat! The cottage is a mix of old and new but you could sit there and envision yourself back in time. The deck is huge and has it's own private hot tub. The view is spectacular! The only thing I would complain... More

We booked Monarch Cove Inn to host our wedding, which means we booked the WHOLE place for all of our family and friends. My mom and I arrived a day early to get everything in place to make sure things ran smoothly over the course of the wedding and to start our preparations. MCI is a lovely bed & breakfast... More

The Monarch Cove Inn is beautifully situated on the bluff over looking Capitola. It is a beautiful and somewhat easy walk to the beach. The views are gorgeous from the main house. We stayed in a studio cottage in the back that had a private deck and yard. There was also a hot tub (not advertised) but it wasn't functioning.... More

This place was pretty fabulous. We stayed only one night, but the experience was so relaxing and peaceful. The location is beautiful. It must be one of the only places where you can sit up in bed and see panoramic views of the ocean (and pelicans, and sea otters). The grounds had well-tended gardens and fruit trees all over. The...

Beautiful location. Amazing staff. Perfect weather. Ideal for an outdoor wedding! Stayed for a weekend wedding, and had the time of my life. Property is hidden, but a true gem! Would definitely go back. Stayed in Monarch Grove room. Could see the ocean in my bed, surrounded by gardens and nature. LOVE THIS PLACE!

I recently visited the Monarch Cove Inn for a friends wedding. This place is a true GEM!! The grounds are kept in pristine condition, and the rooms are quite beautiful and spacious. When you are here, you feel like you are royalty. I loved walking around and seeing what plants were growing, and checking out the different rooms. The view... More

We booked the entire property for my Mothers funeral. Everything was perfect! We took a boat out to sea to scatter the ashes . . in view of Monarch Cove. Afterward we had the services on the deck of Monarch Cove with the perfect view of the ocean. It couldn't have been more breathtaking! We stayed two nights and it... More

My husband and I just stayed at the Monarch Cove Inn for 2 nights, went to the Shadowbrook for a wedding. The Monarch is off the road, in the back, so it is nice and quiet, but you can easily walk to downtown, which is a bonus, not having to park in town .Monarch has ample parking. We stayed in... More

The staff is very friendly and helpful. They responded quickly and with great attitudes to any thing we requested. Their mattresses are awesome. Best I've slept on in a hotel/inn setting. Want one of those in my home
