River in My Backyard

RIVER IN MY BACKYARD: Sleeps up to 8 with 3-bedrooms, 2-full baths. This home brings back those Huckleberry Finn memories of enjoying a lazy drifting river on a warm sunny day. You too can relax and watch the ducks, geese, swans and occasional seagull (as we are less than ½ a block to the ocean,) float by. This green grassy lawn is private to the home and edges the river. There is a small public access path between the downstairs fenced-off deck with many padded lounge chairs and two tables and a charcoal Weber BBQ and the privately fenced-in grassy lawn area.This home is a 2-minute walk to the beach either down the path next to the river, or down the street which most people use as a path too. One of the unique features of this home, is that it has off-street parking for 5-cars with 2 in the Garage and 3 in the driveway.This home is always booked far in advance for the Begonia Festival on Labor Day, which has the Begonia covered floats drifting by the home, but you will enjoy this unique family-loved home, no matter what time of year you visit. See the links to the fun activities in Capitola and nearby Santa Cruz and Aptos on our other web pages.Downstairs the Great Room features a wood fireplace-bring your own firewood- and several comfortable chairs & a couch. The dining area has a large wooden table that can expand to hold up to 10 guests. The newly remodeled kitchen features all new appliances including a dishwasher. The cooks in the kitchen can enjoy the view of the River (formal name is Soquel Creek) too. The TVs are on cable and there is a fast wireless DSL for your laptop.The first bedroom is on the first level with 1-King with a small TV. It is just across the hall from the 1-full bath with a double-sized shower. There is also the laundry room on this floor which has the door to the double-car garage. Upstairs is a large family room with a fun bar with colored lights in the corner, a large TV and DVD player and a loveseat and 1-Queen sofa sleeper. There is a nice deck with even a better view of the river and several tables & chairs next to this spacious family room. The 2nd bedroom is down a short hall and had 1-Queen bed.
