beautiful place. fabulous front desk person. only negative was the remote did not seem to connect well with the tv. first day breakfast was beautiful, including a warm delicious bagel. Second day's breakfast seemed to be less, and included what tasted like a frozen bagel...

Love the location. So peaceful just above the bustle of Capitola. Wonderful having a kitchen, and the patio was beautiful. Even got to watch some monarchs floating around the garden. The fact that it is a pretty simple walk to Capitola is a big bonus, as driving around there is not fun! It's a very nice little breakfast, though if you are gluten and dairy free a bit problematic. However, the manager went and got me a gluten free pastry that was great. We stayed here 20 years ago and it hasn't changed much, which was a lovely surprise.

We loved the sweeping view of the Monterey Bay and the pacific ocean beyond. The staff was very good and even showed us a shortcut through Capitola Village and scenic route by having us follow the innkeeper directly to where we had dinner reservations due to GPS on cell phone being out during severe windstorm. I thought that was above and beyond what most would do in situation like that. Just very classy. The kind of thing that one remembers the next time we want to enjoy an anniversary getaway.

This is the most relaxing atmosphere that is a short walk from all the action! Close to everything but miles away from the world- if you need it to be. We loved the cottage-the grounds- the views and the staff! Folks who comment on its age do not appreciate the uniqueness! Vintage Beauty! We will be back!

Very nice area and beautiful grounds.

Pros: The hotel is in a very quiet area which is good because traffic noises etc. can be bothersome. Also very nice ocean view.
Cons: Minor paint touch up and our bathroom faucet needed a little work.
Location: Short walk to downtown Capitola and the beach.
Liked the continental breakfast and after eating walked to the downtown area and looked around.
