This place was just what we were looking for! Quiet with beautiful ocean views, nice and helpful staff. It is located within walking distance from town and the beach with the wharf. There is a steep stairway going up and down in that walk so some ages might prefer driving down. The whole walk took us about 10 minutes along... More

Our 2nd time staying here for girls weekend and it was just lovely, Great location and friendly staff. The location is perfect as we can ditch our car and walk to beach or over to Gayles bakery. The continental breakfast was brought to our room and it was scrumptious!!! Wonderful pastries, bagels, yogurt and fruit parafait. Rooms are very quiet.... More

Lovely stay, lovely place to spend time! The location is wonderful, overlooking the cliffs of Capitola, and a couple blocks from the Cliff Walk into town. The cottages are charming and in good repair. Our stay, in the Victorian Room, was quiet and very comfortable. Continental breakfast fine. We hope to visit again!

This was the third time my fiance and I stayed at this beautiful bed and breakfast. We love the Hideaway Suite and the Carriage House. Nothing is better than starting the day with a good hour in the hot tub. A very nice stroll through a jealousy inspiring residential neighborhood as the homes are to die for and you are... More

This lovely Inn has a prime location on the bluff above Capitola. Views, grounds, ridge walk, staff and breakfast delivered to your room are all highlights. The beds are Great. I'd live it 4 1/2 stars! (PS The Monarch butterflies are in the Sanctuary close by from Oct to March.)

Everything about this inn met my criteria for a girls getaway: beautiful ocean view from our room; walking distance to cute shops and restaurants; super comfortable bed and tasteful decor; and even a fridge and microwave if you want to bring snacks. The eating table in our room looks out the bay window over the lovely gardens and down to... More

We stayed in the Carriage House - brought along my wife, daughter and my dog. It was the perfect accommodation for us. The property is amazing, of course, with wonderful grounds and a great view. The Carriage House worked very well for us as well. 2 large rooms, a big kitchen/dining room, and your own private outdoor jacuzzi. The location,... More

We stayed in the Rose Garden suite, which was beautiful and clean. We enjoyed a walk around the grounds and the views of the ocean. The staff is thoughtful and accommodating. The breakfast was well-planned. We'd definitely stay again.
