Aptos House Rental Photos and Description

Are you looking for something different ...a clean, fresh and well-maintained beach home? Then welcome to our Rio Del Mar Beach Home, Beach House 257, and a slice of heaven to share with you!
There is a wonderful ocean and beach view from the master bedroom balcony. K, are you asking 'where is the peak of the ocean view?' We don't mention the peak...since you are wondering, from the half bath there is a 'peak' between the condos across the street. Our pictures are accurate, we do not embellish in the least. We wish our guests to be pleasantly 'surprised' upon arrival! One needs to experience Beach House 257 to truly appreciate. None of our guests have been disappointed, they have been pleasantly surprised! Please review our guest's comments, which are available on this site.
We love hearing our guest's excitement in e-mails just before arriving! Then understanding their sadness to leave Beach House 257. Our heart is with them in leaving ...we feel the same way. There is something special about Beach House 257, and one needs to experience to understand …it is such a great home to be with each other, family, and friends. There is something about the ocean, coast and life ...together.
Our guests have the ability to be in communication 24/7 with both Scott and I, Diane. There is much communication sent prior to arrival/instructions/expectations. Scott and I have tried to think of any and all things to make our guests experience a comfortable, joyful and memory building stay. We at one time were a beach home rental guests, therefore our Beach House 257 will reflect us, you as guests, your needs and expectations. We listen when a guest of Beach House 257 makes a suggestion, truly we do!
We love the drive in on Rio Del Mar Blvd from Highway 1, the beauty of the drive ...as one approaches Beach House 257, descending down the hill, the massive view of the ocean and beach, our hearts race, we are there, Beach House 257, heartbeat of Rio Del Mar. Enjoy the views, enjoy the ride, and enjoy this slice of heaven! You will not be disappointed in Beach House 257 as well as the marvels of Aptos and surrounding areas!

About Scott or Diane Schendel
Hi! We are the Schendel family, we would like for you to meet us, Scott and Diane, our daughters Robyn and Mackenzie.
We live in the Central Valley which gets VERY HOT in the summer, we are totally in nature coastal people!
Aptos is a wonderful community we fell in love with several years ago. Many walks on the beach for day trips with our daughters as they were growing up, then the puppy boys.
We had the opportunity to purchase this wonderful beach house, we loving call Beach House 257 in December of 2007. We have provided a Beach Home full of amentities and comfort with our guests in mind! It is warm, comfortable and inviting to the mind, body and soul. Beach House 257 has this unique ability to soothe and comfort. The treasures of family memories or friends gathering memories is very much the heart of Beach House 257. We have been blessed by our guests and love to hear their excitement about their anticipated arrival as well as their excitement for their time spent at Beach House 257!
Scott or Diane Schendel purchased this house in 2007
Why Scott or Diane Schendel chose Aptos
We as a family have rented several beach homes over the years, we knew our hearts were at the beach. One of the beach home rentals was in Seacliff, Aptos, we had an opportunity to meet the locals and found this community to be very inviting, they stole our hearts!
We as parents also knew to keep our daughters going on vacation with us we needed to find a 'draw' for them. Beach House 257 is centrally located for diverse enjoyment! Capitola Village is 5 minutes away, Santa Cruz is 10 minutes away, The Gilroy Outlets are 40 minutes away, Monterey and Carmel are 40 minutes away. Best of all, the beach is a 3-1/2 minute walk from the front door of Beach House 257. The beach in Aptos is very family friendly, from the wee ones running, playing, splashing in the surf to the elderly sitting and enjoying their family and friends. There is something for everyone at Beach House 257!
What makes this house unique
Ahhh, how do we describe the uniqueness of Beach House 257? The pictures do not tell the whole story! As one will read in our guest book online as well as the one at Beach House 257 when they stay, there is a common theme, thread....Beach House 257 is an experience....to see it all in person, all together, very unique in architecture, decor, comfort. The height of the building in itself when inside peering out the many windows. The beautiful hardwood floors, the sky lights, the two person shower in the Master Bedroom, the staircase, the privacy of each of the bedrooms. Each time we go to Beach House 257 we are ever so thankful to share with you, our guests.
Thank you for being our guests!
