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...

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.)

The eating table in our room looks out the bay window over the lovely gardens and down to...

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,...
