Surfin' Santa  is Coming to Town 
Get ready Girls and Boys, Santa is coming! The jolly man with the big white beard will be arriving on the shores of Capitola Village on November 30! He'll be riding in on the waves at noon with his reindeer and elves by outrigger canoe. Once he gets settled in his beach chair he will visit with all the children and listen to their wishes for the holiday. Don't forget to bring your wish lists and cameras!

The event is free and hosted by Capitola Village Merchants and the Capitola-Soquel Chamber of Commerce. For more information call the Capitola-Soquel Chamber at 831.475.6522.  




Beach House Rentals


Over the summer, you may have noticed some changes took place on the corner surrounding 312 Capitola Aveune, at the intersection of Stockton Avenue. There was a restructuring of the corner and the entryway of the building, including new landscaping, pavement and stairs. Additionally, Beach House Rentals expanded into the downstairs space at 312A, formerly PhDiamonds, making over the space into a cozy welcoming/concierge center for their guests.


The new space is modern and bright; the picture windows offer a nice view of Capitola Village. There is plenty of comfortable seating and a coffee station where guests can enjoy a cookie and pour themselves some freshly made, locally roasted coffee, tea or water. Free wifi is available, so guests can just relax or catch up on their email. It is also a nice place for guests to meet one another, especially for those staying in the area longer term.


Beach House Rentals co-owner, Dede Harrington says, "We opened the business almost 10 years ago with the idea of having a lobby space, similar to a hotel, where guests could have coffee in the morning, use the Internet, and have a place to go that was right in the heart of the Village." When the space downstairs from their office opened up, it was the perfect opportunity to expand.


"Our main goal is to provide great customer service and we feel that first impressions are very important. We try to provide as many services as we can to our guests," Harrington explained.

Beach House Rentals offers short and long term fully furnished vacation rentals from Santa Cruz to Aptos. They pride themselves on finding unique upscale beach houses close to the beach from studio apartments to five bedroom homes in a variety of sizes and price ranges. Take advantage of special prices for the shoulder season - 3 nights for the price of 2 in their beach houses, now through May 1, 2014, excluding holidays. Also, there are still rentals available for the Thanksgiving holiday, call to reserve, before they get snatched up. Reach them at 800-330-2979 or click here for more information.
