Watch dolphins, otters and sea lions from your private deck where birds fly by at eye level – a truly amazing vantage point. From this position you can actually see the sunrise and the sunset. The deck spans the entire length of the house. Located in Aptos (Seacliff) California, home features 2 bedrooms, 2 baths. The master suite includes a California King and breathtaking ocean views to the front and park-like settings in the rear.

Well behaved pet(s) welcomed for pet owners that take responsibility for their pets - help ensure that we keep this as an option by ensuring your pet is suited to stay at someone else's home.

Note: Care taker and a miniature dachshund reside on property in separate downstairs unit - (separate entrance, separate parking and separate gated area). As of May 2011, the miniature dachshund now stays at home during work days.

Fine Print & Ideal Visitors: Pets considered based upon breed and extra fee and deposit. Since this is a cliff-side house, young children are not encouraged and parents are advised of this risk, but those young in their hearts who want a tremendously private and romantic get-away will find this is a place you will always remember. Also ideal for friends and family to enjoy the company of each other while listening and watching nature’s beauty.

Note: We cannot accommodate large gatherings at our rental, including weddings, receptions, or parties, because of fire codes and neighborhood agreements.

TRULY AMAZING, IDYLLIC VACATION HOME!!

  • 5 of 5
We have come to Aptos every summer for many years, and this home was, by far, the best vacation rental we have ever had. The home and ocean views are more beautiful than the pictures. The interior is spacious and very comfortable. The ocean view from the master bedroom was stunning, and it was delightful to start the day enjoying such a view while still in bed sipping coffee and reading the newspaper so generously provided by the owner each day. The location couldn't be more perfect....centrally located for easy day trips to Carmel, Monterey, and Moss Landing, and lots of excellent restaurants. The highlight of each day was sitting on the deck and watching the sunset while enjoying a glass of wine. We spent each afternoon dozing on the deck swing or watching the pelicans, sea otters, and dolphins. It was incredibly serene and peaceful to fall asleep listening to the sounds of the ocean. Amy greeted us upon arrival, gave us a tour, and answered all of our questions. She has done a great job of clearly and simply typing out instructions on the use of the entertainment system which made using them so easy. Although we never had any issues, it was comforting to know that she was easily available by phone and that she lived on site.
Many vacation rentals require a minimum stay of one week during summer months. We were only able to stay 5 nights, and Amy's flexibility with the schedule was greatly appreciated.
We would HIGHLY recommend this beautiful vacation home and plan to return again!!

AMAZING - A GIFT

  • 5 of 5
My family and I stayed for only three nights and we coulda stayed forever. The house is absolutely beautiful; so often we look at pictures online and can't believe they're real, but this house actually looks better than the photos, if that's possible. Location is perfect. Beach is amazing. House is the most up to date that we've rented. We'll be back very soon!

BEST VIEW!

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed 4 nights in April here. The weather was mostly sunny so we made great use of the deck to relax outside, read, and enjoy the fantastic view. Our dachshund felt right at home, zipping in and out through the little doggie door. We can't wait to return!

AN AMAZING WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5
The pictures do not do this home and view justice. Sitting on the back deck is just amazing! There are no visible houses on either side of you and it feels like you have the ocean view all to yourself. I don't think there was one time that I looked out and did not see an otter or seal. The front yard is equally beautiful with big trees, a very quaint brick pathway leading to a white picket fence and beautiful daffodils in bloom.

The house is beautifully decorated and had everything we needed for our weekend. Between the view from a comfortable bed in the master bedroom and the soft sheets, I never wanted to get up. Coffee in bed was just perfect! The family room had plenty of seating and the games provided by the owners would certainly bring hours of fun.

Marilee and Amy were so helpful as they greeted us upon our arrival. They had some wonderful suggestions for great restaurants and fun places to visit. The walk to the ocean was just as they said, 12 minutes to the pathway and only a couple of more to the sand. The pathway to the Ocean was green and lush and the walk to the pathway was through an adorable neighborhood with beautiful ocean front homes.

We can't wait to come back again and share this gem of a home with friends.

THE VIEWS ARE FOR REAL!!

My wife and I stayed here in November and had a wonderful stay. We have been fortunate in that we have done a great deal of traveling and this was one of our best experiences. It was a very relaxing enviornment with great views and easy driving distance to many sights.
We will certainly return!

NICE PLACE

  • 5 of 5
The property is accurately described in the listing with beautiful views over the ocean. Marile welcomed us on arrival, explained a few things and left us to enjoy our stay.
My wife, son and I rented the house for 12 days early October 2010 and thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Aptos. We found it to be a perfect base for day trips to San Francisco, Santa Cruz, Monterey and surrounding area. We also spent a few days on the beach.
Local facilities and restaurants are very good.
I would not hesitate in recommending this property to friends.
