About Jewel Box Real Estate

The real estate in Jewel Box is varied, offering an eclectic mix of cozy cottages built after the First World War to mature, newly renovated condominiums and townhouses, and redeveloped properties. Jewel Box is a mature, well-established neighborhood with plenty of natural landscaping and plenty of on-street parking for guests, with modest frontages and small backyards that are perfect for entertaining without too much maintenance. This neighborhood is a great option for those looking for accessible, single-level living close to a variety of amenities and services. Like most Capitola neighborhoods, you'll be hard-pressed to find two identical homes in this neighborhood, but you can count on them being attractive, one-story ranchers and bungalows.

Looking for waterfront? Then you won't want to miss out on listings along Opal Cliff Drive. These stunning, cliffside properties are situated along the Opal Cliffs on larger lots that overlook the pristine waters of Soquel Cove and the Pacific Ocean. 

Living in Jewel Box, Capitola CA

  • Verve Coffee Roasters
  • Rocky's Fitness Center and In-Shape Health Club
  • Zameen at the Point Restaurant, Betty Burgers

A local gem in the Jewel Box is the Jade Street Park, which includes tennis and basketball courts, a soccer field, playground, and a local community center. Of course, the centerpiece of this community is its waterfront location. No matter where you live in Jewel Box, you're at-most just a 10-minute walk from the sandy shoreline below the bluffs.
