Capurro Ranch at Moss Landing - Moss Landing

 5 Bedroom Ocean View Home

You won't believe the views from this one-of-a-kind property overlooking the ocean and the famed Elkhorn Slough! Perched on a bluff midway between Monterey and Santa Cruz, set amid working lettuce and strawberry fields, this 5-bedroom 1950s ranch home has commanding views of the tidal wetlands—a haven for birds, otters, seals and other wildlife. From here you can fish, whale watch, kayak, or explore some of the most private beaches in California—and you're just minutes from Moss Landing, a quaint beach town known for great seafood restaurants, cafes and galleries. Enter and step down to the ocean view living room with a leather sofa and chairs facing a large fireplace. Immediately adjacent, the family room has a second fireplace, a large TV, a game table that seats four, and access to a brick courtyard with chairs for lounging and a pergola for shade. There's also a grassy yard and a second patio with an upholstered sectional, a firepit, a Genesis gas barbecue, and a table and chairs for outdoor dining. The property's history as a working ranch home is apparent in the rustic, mid-Century decor: miles of redwood paneling, vintage tile, and extensive use of brick and flagstone. The ranch style kitchen has a dining table for eight (with leaf), a five-burner electric cooktop, built-in double ovens, and a restaurant-style refrigerator. A second refrigerator with top freezer is located in the adjoining laundry room, which doubles as a second prep kitchen. The home has five bedrooms and four full baths. There are four bedrooms and three baths in the main house; the separate guest cottage is in back. The master suite—with garden, ocean and estuary views—has a King bed, a mirrored dressing area, extensive closets, and an en suite bath with a shower and a "walk-in" tub. The adjoining workout room has a built-in ballet barre (bring your exercise mats!). The other three bedrooms (Queen, Double, and two XL twins) share two full baths with showers: one bath is located in the hall; the other is adjacent to the kitchen and laundry room. The private guest cottage has a Queen bed, TV, leather chair, window seat, and a kitchenette. There's bar seating for two along with a four-burner electric range, an apartment size refrigerator, and a petite Cuisinart coffee maker. Located at the end of a palm-lined drive, this is the perfect home for lovers of the outdoors and a great base to explore all the natural wonders of the Monterey Peninsula. Cable and WiFi are provided, but due to distance from nearest cell tower, internet speed may not be suitable for streaming.  Closest beaches: Moss Landing State Beach (0.9 miles) and Zmudowski State Beach (2.8 miles).  Monthly discount available. Stays over one month are subject to utility rate caps. less ↑

Calutrons Ranch splendor

This house is beautifully landscaped, and right on moss landing estuary, gorgeous! Plenty of room for our family. From the house you can walk about a half mile to a private beach. It’s a very flat road and I didn’t think I could do it because of knee and back issues, but I did it twice. The electric stove was tricky but we figured it out. Only thing that could make this sprawling ranch better would be a hot tub or pong pong/ pool table in the spacious garage. Plenty of parking. 20-25 minutes to aquarium, boardwalk, and closer to groceries. Michael was a wonderful help in changing our reservation from last year to this due to COVID issues. He called me to change the reservation and to confirm I had gotten the correct alarm code. thank you, less

Great location

This location was beautiful, peaceful and relaxing. Very clean and in great condition we really enjoyed the large space and beautiful views. Very well equipped kitchen, all our needs were met. Direct TV was hard to understand but we found the NBA playoffs so the guys we happy. Thank you so much and if we have a need for these accommodations again, we would love to return. less

— James, Stayed 06/04/2022

Amazing place

The location was awesome and the house exceeded our expectations. Well equipped and spacious. Perfect for our family that ranged from 2 to 70. This is not a location for people who want to be in the thick of things. We found it to be very laid back and exactly what we were looking for. A hot tub would be a plus! The house was built in the 50's and a bit dated but we didn't care. Upgrades have been made where needed. We will not hesitate to book this property again. less

Wonderful Time at Capurro Ranch at Moss Landing

Our family ranging from 9 months old to 71 yrs old had a wonderful time at Moss Landing. The interior of the house is very spacious and clean. The bedrooms are located away from the living area making it nice for the kids to take a nap. The only bathtub is in the master bedroom area and it is a walk-in type bathtub. The kids actually thought it was pretty fun taking a bath in it. The rest of us opted to use one of the three showers! The outside of the house is wonderfully landscaped both in the front and in the back. The backyard is completely fenced making it nice for the kids and dogs to play. The house is right off of Hwy 1 but the long private driveway makes it very private with plenty of parking and spectacular views of the estuary. There is a private trail from the house to the beach which we really enjoyed. It's a scenic 1 mile hike to the beach and the kids enjoyed playing on the sand dunes! I corresponded with Ashley and Michael from the Monterey Bay Property Management. They are both friendly and helpful and promptly returned emails and phone calls. My family is looking forward to staying at Capurro Ranch again in the future! less

Great experience!

From the beginning to the end our stay at Capurro Ranch was truly wonderful! With access to the water and beach the Elkhorn Slough was a new and especially rich experience for us. Local and migratory bird and animal life is in abundance! The slough changed right in front of the home twice daily due to the tide. So interesting and made me feel connected to the ancient rhythms of time which have been always there just normally unnoticed. With every tidal change we experienced many different animals and birds feeding in front of this comfortable home. Bring your binoculars!!!!!!!! I even saw a Peregrine falcon hunting for its dinner over the slough! The large picture windows provide light and a theater like panoramic scene giving the beautiful home a chance to truly shine. We were fortunate to have very warm weather. I booked a local guided bird watching excursion which travelled far into the slough on a quiet electric boat. It was certainly one highlight and was a great decision. The boat was almost silent allowing the Captain to approach wildlife easily! I’ve seen many otters and sea lions but never within this proximity. It was just very gratifying to experience the slough in this manner. I was relatively unfamiliar with it until now. Such a discovery and haven for thousands of birds as they reside or migrate through. The home itself is a perfect example of period architecture and design preserved rather than carelessly replaced,remodeled and destroyed. Of course it’s been modernized in ways we appreciated but retains its 70s charm with careful consideration for comfort. Always offering necessary amenities we loved of course made it all The better. We lacked or wanted for nothing. Staying 4 days and 5 nights also provided an appreciation for the many beautiful evenings which can be lost if there is no access to panoramic windows, true darkness and privacy. These are incredible scenes especially due to a full moon witnessed through the night as it set in the evening over the ocean. The home is spacious, comfy, warm and gives each guest the opportunity to find privacy and time alone if they choose. With linens and bathrooms updated and immaculate our discerning needs were completely met. More than beautiful this property is nostalgic and practical too. Of course our party of four found the outdoor activities and weather perfect. It lured us outdoors as much as possible. We were truly excited to see the weather cooperate so well. Spending time outdoors but also enjoying the interior patios designed for protection from wind which might be present. This was a thoughtful design element which offers flexibility during your stay. It was calm and sunny for the duration of our stay. We felt fortunate. The truth is the home would be comfortable in any climate condition however! I can only imagine what a roaring fire might be like on a cold rainy day! Maybe next time? I can dream right? As we experienced this incredible property we found ourselves planning our next visit! There’s no question we’ll be back to discover more attributes this unusual and rare ecological area have to offer. It’s perfect for the nature lover who might prefer sea lions over Gucci!!!! But that is available too just twenty minutes South in Carmel!!! We just loved everything about this property and I could continue to expand on our visit but allow me to say it is a unique and luxurious location we believe to be a hidden gem. One more thing…… this updated modern kitchen does offer any cook the ability to prepare meals and snacks any time of day. To be able to prepare meals and food was a huge plus allowing the freedom from eating every meal in a restaurant! There are a few good restaurants close within 5 minutes which we enjoyed also. With water views and diverse menus we never felt it necessary to travel to Monterey for a good meal eaten in or taken to go. Ok, I am happy to tell you as soon as we’re able we will be returning! I feel we’ve found the location which truly serves our needs on so many levels. Not an easy task but we feel completely satisfied. To experience the intoxicating ocean air after a very smoky and extremely hot Summer we felt our stay at Capurro Ranch was without a doubt a breath of fresh air and exactly what we needed and wanted as we move forward into the Winter months. I’m happy to write this statement and recommend this experience to those people who want to feel immersed in nature and also experience the nostalgia which can only come from the carefully tended and maintained original property characteristics of Capurro Ranch. We obviously loved our experience and will be back as soon as possible. I believe this says it all!!! In short we loved our experience and want to thank the efficient team of people who guided us into this unusual unique experience. Thanks to you all especially Michael and Jan! Sincerely, Aleah Koury and guests less

House has a great layout, with comfortable bedding, cozy setting and lots of windows. with good views. Very private setting, good parking and landscaped well and clean and appealing.

— Connie, Stayed 09/18/2021

Mr

The family LOVED this space and place and want to come back! Very spacious. Beautifully furnished. Kitchen is well equipped for families who like to cook together. Extremely clean. Premium linens and sheets. Outside was wonderfully landscaped and the fire pit was the perfect space for family story telling. less

Family Getaway

We were amazed by the beautiful home and the incredible property. We enjoyed the home, the views, and the beach, while also having complete privacy. Hosts were fantastic. Highly recommend it and hope to visit again soon. A beautiful escape.

— Jack, Stayed 07/01/2021

A time away

This home was more than we hoped for. Taking time away there were eight of us in total and the home was more than enough room. Each and every room of the home has a specular view and the perfect breeze flows through the house when windows open. Been to a lot of vacation homes, but this one is special, totally comfortable beds, great kitchen for visiting while making meals, close to beach and the visit to Moss Landing, sitting outside with a fire pit to make special memories, games to play and perfect peace. We will return and I would recommend this home to anyone. less

Family trip

House was great. We had 8 people in our group ages ranged from 7-70. Plenty of space and the location was amazing

— Jason, Stayed 06/11/2021

Great family holiday!!

The house was perfect for our gathering of family for Hanukkah. So spacious and VERY clean. The views were wonderful even though it was grey and wet most of the time we were there. The kitchen was well stocked with all the necessities. During this time of Covid it was wonderful to have a place to stay that was far away from anyone. I would and probably will stay here again in the future. My whole family loved this house. less

— Carolee, Stayed 12/16/2020

Enjoyed our stay

Enjoyed our stay here very much. Spacious house with great views of the slough, very clean. We had a 96 year old with us, and it was very helpful there were only a couple of steps into one room. Plenty of dishes and silverware, reasonable assortment of pots and other kitchenware. It's great they allow dogs, and have a small grass area in back for them to potty, though to walk them you have to drive elsewhere or take the dirt road in back of the house in the strawberry fields ( we made sure to wipe their paws before coming back inside) because once you get down the long driveway in front of the house you hit the highway. An updated microwave in the main kitchen would be nice, and some individual packets of tea/coffee/salt/pepper/sugar to start people off. less

Golf trip

Capurro Ranch at Moss Landing was perfect for us! It was a golf outing we had planned with 4 couples and the house provided all that we needed, very comfortable and very very clean AND very spacious! Got to meet the owner Frank Capurro, very friendly and fun personality!! less

I want to rate 4.8 CLEAN AND BEAUTIFUL

The house was so clean and stocked with plenty of shampoo, conditioner, lotions and soap samples. There were plenty of towels and blankets as well. Even cleaning supplies if we needed anything. I just loved the outdoor area in front overlooking the slough with gorgeous landscaping and the backyard had a beautiful grassy area and firepit. The yard games were a fun addition to the house and we all loved Yardzee! We were able to walk to Moss Landing Beach although it was a bit scary when we had to walk on the road and the cars were driving really fast. We could get on the weeded area pretty quickly though to feel safer. I really wish to give this house a 4.8 because it's such a great house but not perfect. A few improvements could be made and I feel picky but a 5 star should be perfect. First, there was no outdoor dining area with a table other than a small 2 person table out front. Second, there were no steak knives in the kitchen. Also, there were plenty of pots but very few baking pans. And the one sheet pan was too long for the oven. It fit but was touching the window of the oven so not sure it closed all the way. There was a 9X12 glass pan and one smaller glass pan but our family of 9 could have used more. There were no platters so these served 2 purposes for us. Also no dry measuring cups. The refrigerator in the main kitchen looked really cool but we realized the second day that it wasn't at 38 degrees and then we researched and it seems to be a beverage fridge. There was another fridge but it was just around the corner in a different room. Directions about that would have been nice. Lastly, the farm was amazing but confusing for us. There was a note about keeping dogs on leash so we assumed we were allowed to walk on the edge of it with the dogs and that we would run into a beach. Well, we tried it and walked farther than we were comfortable and turned around. Again, directions on what we could and couldn't do with that farm would have been nice. Is it okay to pick a strawberry or 2? We had access but just confused. In all, I would definitely stay here again! Our kids were able to use the wifi for school. We also had a hot spot so we didn't overload the system since there was a max number allowed to sign into it. The home was quiet and relaxing and felt very clean! less

— Adina, Stayed 09/11/2020

Family friendly house

Very nice property and house. Plenty of room for our group. Very clean and comfortable home. The studio was an added bonus! We went kayaking on the Elkhorn Slough and had a great time! Close to the beach and harbor. Very cool being on the strawberry farm. Private home, so no noisy neighbors! Would recommend to anyone looking to get away. less

— Ian, Stayed 08/11/2020

Family Time

My family consist of a wonderful wife, smart daughter, good son, smart son in law, fun daughter in law and three grandsons ages 18, 15 and 14. What an experience for city folks to be right next to a strawberry farm with the opportunity to observe the harvest. The home is so relaxing that we never wanted to leave for the tidepools, beaches, Phil's Fish Market, Farmers Markets and Santa Cruz, Monterey and Carmel. The best is that it is a fun place for families to play cards, games, sing, making meals together, hiking and sitting around an outdoor fire pit making s'mores. We all want to return. less

Capurro Ranch at Moss Landing, CA

Beautiful place, spectacular views, fully equipped: kitchen, laundry room, bedrooms, and bathrooms Plenty of room for a large family - we had nine, six adults and three children. Out by it's self so perfect place to meet family and still be sheltered-in. Kids could safely play in the fully enclosed yards. Bonus: large exercise room with no furniture. It's where we, all together, played games (Twister), bounced balloons, celebrated 4ith of July by our "fireworks" which were glow in the dark Easter Eggs - on the floor not in the sky - however the kids loved it! I would give this place many stars higher than 5!! less

— Teresa, Stayed 07/10/2020

Exceeded our expectations!

With grown kids and a growing extended family, we annually take a trip together in lieu of Christmas presents.This year we wanted to see the sites in Monterey. This house was large enough to accommodate everyone with their own room. As we are coming from all over California, parking for all the cars was a concern but there was plenty of room on the property to easily fit our 5 vehicles. The relaxing isolated setting made for a comfortable feel and while the house is furnished beautifully,it still felt "homey". I would highly recommend this house and would not hesitate to return if we come back to the area. less
