We were only at Flora Vista for two nights but we loved our stay. It was quiet, peaceful and very welcoming. Deanna's breakfasts were AWESOME. Deanna treated us like family, let us know where the hot spots were in California (we are from Texas) and made it such an awesome experience to stay at the B&B. Also, a secluded beach... More

This B and B looks over fields of flowers ...tho none there when we were there, but must be gorgeous in season. The Inn itself has 5 rooms and we stayed in the Poppy one. As expected in older homes, not huge... More

This was our third wonderful stay at the Flora Vista Inn, run by our warm hosts Deanna and Eddie. It's the only place we will stay when we are in the Santa Curz area. If getting away, being pampered, being treated like family by the hosts, having amazing breakfasts,and being guided to the areas best spots is something you'd like,... More

This B&B is perfectly nestled in the berry farms of Watsonville. The expansive views of green fields was just beautiful. The grounds were well-kept, with great outside seating to enjoy the views. It's the perfect location for sightseeing along Monterey Bay. We were easily able to drive to Monterey, Carmel-by-the-sea, and Big Sur areas, which offered up magnificent views of... More

The Inn is beautful both inside and out, and you couldn't find nicer hosts! One of the best stays we have had in all our decades of California trips!

My daughter chose Flora Vista Inn to hold her small intimate wedding. It was the perfect choice! The location was terrific. A few minutes walk to a delightful beach or a few minutes drive to Monterey or the Santa Cruz, Aptos area where there is a very nice selection of restaurants for lunch and dinner. Personally, I just loved sitting... More

This is a lovely little place. The innkeepers, Deanna and Ed, are friendly and fun, and the food is delicious. I was in he area for a horse show and so arrived late and had to leave early some mornings. They were very accomodating and still had a light breakfast for me at an early hour. I hadn't stayed in...
