Recent Watsonville vacation rental reviews

This was a great place to get away for a few days. It had enough room for 3 kids to have some space to roam about the house. The beach was just a few steps away and it was very quiet through the memorial day holiday. Recommend!
Kasey Y. | May 2023
We loved the location for the places we wanted to go. Easy to get to. Plenty of parking. Comfortable beds. Could use more eating spoons and forks.
Mardell E. | May 2023
