The Surf House is a California style beach bungalow located across the street from Rio Del Mar State Beach. The house was built in the late 30's for the guests of the Rio Del Mar Country Club. Many of the original features of the house remain. There are 2 bedrooms, plus a sleeping alcove in the living room. Master bedroom has a queen bed. Front bedroom has two twins. There is a trudle bed in the livingroom alcove that also serves as a couch during the day. One bathroom with shower. Linens provided. Full Kitchen with basic staples(condiments,spices, cooking oils, juice, sodas, coffee, tea, milk) provided. There is a large deck off of the living room with a bar-be-cue, picnic table, and umbrella.
Pets need a vacation too. Well behaved pets are always welcome.
Rio Del Mar Beach is steps from the house. The beach is kid and dog friendly with miles of sand for walking and playing. Seabirds are abundant. Down the Beach is the USS Palo Alto and Seacliff State Park. If you don't like to get sand between your toes the view from the living room and deck make this ideal for your beach vacation. Watch the beach activities from the comfort of your living room through the large picture window or from the comfort of your deck chair.
The Palo Alto cement ship, the surf at Pleasure Point, and the bluffs of Capitola can be seen from the living room and deck. The Surf House is 5 minutes away from 'antiquing' in Soquel and Aptos. Shopping and dining in Capitola is only 10 minutes north. Visit the redwoods or the Santa Cruz boardwalk in 15 minutes. The Monterey Bay Aquarium is 40 min south and San Francisco is 90 minutes north.

Why Lynn and Jeff chose Aptos
Renting a place close to the beach, and being near all of the beach activities, is usually hard to find, so the location of The Surf House is a real plus. Rio Del Mar Beach is ideal for families and pet owners. Renting a vacation house is a rewarding business. People are friendly and come with the expectation of having a perfect vacation. We are pleased that we can meet or exceed those expectations. We've found that folks take good care of the house because we provide a clean, well stocked home with everything they need. Pets are part of the family and many people wouldn't dream of taking a vacation without them. We've also found that folks who have pets take extra care and really appreciate the opportunity to vacation with their pets.
What makes this house unique
Pixie Deli, Rio Cafe, The Beach Bean, and a small grocery store are right down the block. Watch the the beach activities without leaving the house.

Thank you for a wonderfully relaxing vacation. It was great to arrive after 8 hours on the road to find milk and juice in the fridge; cereal, coffee, and tea in the cupboard; and sheets on the beds. No other summer rental has been so clean and well-equipped. We kept track of dolphins and sea lions with our binoculars from the living room and enjoyed many walks on the beach. We'll be back!
