About Gian Paolo Martire

Our family has owned the building since 1996 and have enjoyed the Village through the three generations that have come to know the uniqueness of Capitola. We live within a half-an-hour of Capitola in the Santa Clara Valley and refer to the area as our second home. As fourth generation Northern Californians, we take pride in our area and we strive to provide the best for the visitors of our location.

Gian Paolo Martire purchased this apartment in 1996

Why Gian Paolo Martire chose Capitola

What more can we say about Capitola and this apartment that hasn't already been said?!!! As a family we have enjoyed the Village and beach for its family friendliness, variety of dining and shopping, and awesome weather. The locals are welcoming and warm, and the area is safe. Everything one needs is in walking distance and don't be surprised if you don't use your car once while staying here.

Not to mention that one of the local favorite restaurants, Thai Basil, is downstairs!!!

What makes this apartment unique

As we remodeled the apartment in 2012, we wanted to add every convenience we could. A loft with two beds for the kids (or adults), a hot tub, a large window for natural lighting, WiFi and washing facilities. The balcony overlooking Monterey Avenue is great for people watching in the Village yet the double pained windows throughout the location ensure a good night sleep.

For us, its all about the location. Great restaurants, a beautiful beach, and shopping enhance a walking experience. There is nothing like stepping out the apartment door with a cup of coffee in the cool, fresh mornings and enjoying the Monterey Bay. This is why we keep coming back!

Beautiful property, great location

  • 4 of 5

Pros: remodeled, very clean, lots of amenities included(thank you for the beach towels!), location is perfect, so many things to do in Capitola, owner answered any questions I had.

Cons: The downstairs bedroom mattresses were not very comfortable, but they were ok. Upstairs mattresses were great. Cable therefore TV did not work in master bedroom but it did work in living room fine. The master shower seemed to be about to come out of the wall, kinda shaky. We only used it one time and used only guest bath after that.

Overall, great property! We loved our time in CA.

Nice place for a large family

  • 4 of 5

So convenient to the downtown shops and most importantly, the beach. The house itself is beautiful inside with all the latest cabinetry and appliances with plenty of room to cook for 10.

The loft had a low ceiling and you couldn't stand upright unless you were under 8 yrs old and access to the place itself was by stairs only (which wouldn't be a problem unless you had someone in the family who had a hard time with stairs). Parking is tight (as anywhere in Capitola) but the restaurant folks downstairs are very accomodating!

Beach town fun

  • 5 of 5

Great place for a big group in the heart of Capitola! The front of the building is a bit confusing as it right above a Thai restaurant, but it's a lovely place!

Prime location in Capitola

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 8 had a great stay in this house. We were supposed to go up to Sonoma on a girls trip but had to change plans at the last minute due to the fires. Gian was great to work with, and we really enjoyed our stay at this home. It was great having a parking space in the back, the house was clean, modern, and easy to walk to all that Capitola has to offer. We enjoyed the laid back feel of the town and its charm. We only slept two people in the loft because the ceilings are a little low, but we used the pull out couch for the other two and it worked out great. I would definitely recommend this town and condo for people coming to Capitola.

Capitola is a small coastal town on California’s Monterey Bay. The town was pioneered in the late 1800?s first as a lumber port and later as a vacation resort.

Capitola’s beach is embraced between two cliffs in a river valley. The river, Soquel Creek, is the site of the annual Begonia Festival where flower laden floats grace the river for a weekend in September. The Esplanade is a wonderful stroll in the village of Capitola, along a row of restaurants, historic homes and small shops passing by the vistas of Monterey Bay and the beach. In September the Esplanade hosts the Capitola Art & Wine Festival.

A major shopping area less than a mile from the beach is located on 41st Avenue featuring malls and major retail stores

Please visit the Capitola Chamber of Commerce for additional information.
