Upscale neighborhood close to Capitola by the Sea. Breakfast included! SHARED SPACE/HOSTED APT. Adults only. Not kid friendly. NO children or pets allowed. Before you book your stay review the listing description and my House Rules thoroughly to align your expectations regarding the accommodations. I know there is a lot of info/text here but I have attempted to cover all the bases in this description of my unit, location and amenities so that you can make a wise choice. PLEASE make an INQUIRY before making a pending reservation. I prefer that you communicate with me first so that you have up to the minute info about my space and we make sure that it is a good fit for you and your plans. NO PIC + NO INFO = NO BOOKING. If you are new to Airbnb please take the time to fill out your profile with some information about yourself other than your name, upload a clear photo of yourself and work on getting your verification. I will also need a cell phone number for you and your traveling companion. Please be aware: This is a SHARED SPACE with a SHARED Bathroom. Me and my partner live here full time. We use the master bedroom, and guests use the Guest/ massage room. I do not rent out my master bedroom. Sometimes I am away on vacation or sleep at my friends house and I will keep you up to date of my own travel plans. I have ONE guest room with ONE oversized, super comfortable full size bed, and I can put up the queen airbed for additional people. The full size bed is a regular bed and I only put up the airbed when I have a special request for it. I also just purchased a tri fold sleeping mat. There is an additional charge for the airbed and extra guests. Two new wave storm foam surfboards for your use. READ THIS BEFORE INQUIRY!! My rules state that only approved registered guests/visitors are allowed access to my space and others will be considered trespassing and the authorities will be notified. You and your unregistered person will be asked to leave immediately. I do not rent my place by the hour, so don't even ask! Tell me a little about yourself. I will also need to know the ages of everyone in your party and the purpose of your visit. The more info you can supply, the easier it will be for me to approve your reservation request. You must be able to climb stairs...there is no working elevator in the building. I am the top unit of a two story building. Once again, this is a shared apt. Most of the time I am home and living in the apt, and I sleep in the master bedroom. You have use of the private guest bedroom, however we DO share a full bathroom. APARTMENT INFO: THIS IS A SHARED APT. You are renting my guest room, not the whole apt and not my master bedroom. You will be staying in my guest room - the first room to the left once you are in the apt. You are welcome to use the living room, dining room, kitchen. I and/or my partner/co-host use MASTER BEDROOM and you have use of the guest room. We also share the bathroom. Modern, funky, eclectic apartment overlooking the ocean and Capitola Village.

If you have an additional person, or simply do not want to share a bed, I do have a new Costco Queen Airbed with headboard. Quite comfortable and better than sleeping on the floor. It is an additional $20 to set up the airbed for the second person. I need to know in advance if there will be an extra person as I need to rearrange a few things in the guest room to accommodate the airbed. If you are a couple and have a third person sharing the room and using the airbed it is an additional $36 for third person, for a total of $56 for the third person. Please let me know in advance if you need the airbed in addition to the regular full size bed in your room. The last few pictures show the airbed in the guest room. Additional guest MUST be approved by me, in advance. Guest room does not have a view of the ocean, however you can hear the waves. I do leave my bedroom door open during the day so that you can also enjoy the waves from my bedroom window. You can also see the beach from the dining room and the roof area. Compact functional kitchen with full size refrigerator, stove, toaster oven, microwave, crock pot,coffee, french press or Keurig. Coffee pods are supplied. You can also bring your own ground coffee and use the Keurig insert. Plus a Vita Mix blender! It makes the best fruit smoothies. It is not a juicer. You can get organic fresh juice at New Leaf Market in Capitola on 41st Av. I prefer no full blown cooking. I use the toaster oven for small meals...and I use the 2 right burners for making eggs, tea, etc. DO NOT rearrange the set up on the stove top please. Use only the 2 RIGHT side burners. The oven is not available for cooking. It stores my cookware. I supply breakfast food for you. If time permits I will cook breakfast.

Dining table faces out to the ocean/beach and Capitola Village. My apartment only has one full bathroom and it is shared. Obviously I wish I had another bathroom but there are just some things in life you can't change so you learn to compromise gracefully. I do not work a regular job so I won't be hogging the bathroom in the morning! And most mornings I am at the gym. You get first dibs!

Checkout by 11 am-12 noon. I will make sure you have a parking permit so that you can explore the area/beach if you arrive early in the day. I will do my best to work with your plans. If I am not traveling myself I will be sharing the apt with you. I sleep in the master bedroom with my partner. Sometimes a friend will be acting as my co-host and staying in my room in the event that I am on vacation. We are very quiet and respectful of your time here. We will have to share the one hall bathroom as well - so far this has not caused any problems with me or my guests. Reminder...this is not a sterile, overpriced hotel room. This is a SHARED, affordable lodging experience at the beach!! If you are not comfortable staying with strangers, then this is not the ideal situation for your needs. Capitola has lots of lodging options. If you need complete privacy I am sure that you will find the perfect space for your getaway, if you do your research.
