Most visitors are very familiar with Capitola Village, but there are some genuinely unique and peaceful neighborhoods just a few minutes walk in all directions. Today, as part of our Industry Referral Partner Program, we’re coming to you from Depot Hill above the Village, but we have brief descriptions of nearby Capitola neighborhoods below so you and your clients can scope out their possibilities including our  Capitola search listings tool. It just so happens that our new EF Homes Headquarters are located in the Upper Village next to everyone’s favorite, Gayle’s Bakery, so we know Capitola very well.
