About Joe Castello

We live in the Bay Area and bought this as a second home with the intention of enjoying it with family & friends. We love the area for it's beautiful beaches, small town charm, and great history.

Joe Castello purchased this house in 1986

Why Joe Castello chose Aptos

Aptos is a wonderful town with beautiful beaches and breathtaking scenery. We like that it is located near places such as Capitola and Santa Cruz, but away from the congestion. Monterey is also just a short drive away for those trips to the Monterey Bay Aquarium or 17 mile drive. Walking distance to downtown, ocean & trails makes this a fun place to enjoy!

What makes this house unique

Enjoy a morning cup of coffee while sitting on one of the 3 ocean view decks! Relax on the roof top deck while taking in the sights and sounds of the ocean.

Exactly what we needed-Hope to return soon.

  • 5 of 5
This was our first VRBO experience and it totally exceeded expectations. The pictures are representative,but if you get a sunny day, the place becomes paradise. We were there for UCSC graduation and would recommend for others for that occasion.

Amenities in the kitchen are great. We had dinner and brunch for 8 with plenty of dishes, cooking and serving items. All of the furniture is comfortable and perfect for the space. Also, there are 3 (maybe 4) decks. And from each you get a great view of the ocean, but also this totally amazing tree. Our guests from 10 to 78 were entertained. I coined a new word: In"tree"ging. Wish I could post a picture.

My niece and I walked to "town" Manuel's Mexican food, Highway One Pizza and Marianne's Ice Cream (long time SC favorite new to Aptos) all great. The corner store had the most beautiful sunflowers! Driving to Safeway, Starbucks and Aptos Street BBQ very easy. You are close (but not too close) to the freeway, too.

Joe is a pleasure to work with. Everything done by email. Be sure to follow his directions to the house, not your navigator. The key system worked great. Security deposit was returned in a timely manner. The check out list for the house is very helpful.

Only two caveats: all bedrooms are down at least one floor. My 78 year old mother did pretty well, but we did wish for a bedroom on the main floor. And, it is a big house, so clean up takes time...makes the 11 a.m. check out a bit early.

cozy house close to the beach

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for 2 days- originally planned for 3 since my hubby had to go back to work. The house is as described close to the beach( less than 10 minute walk) in a nice neighborhood. My brother joined us for a day with his dog that was welcomed by Joe. Overall our experience with Joe was excellent and he was just a phone call away.We plan to come back again in the next few months.

Weekend in Aptos/Santa Cruz :)

  • 5 of 5
My family and I had an amazing time in Aptos/Santa Cruz. The house had amazing views and was very spacious, with more than enough space inside and out. The property was well maintained and everything was clean and tidy when we arrived. It was nice to be so close to town and the Freeway, it made it very easy and convenient to head to the beach or the boardwalk. We were in town for a Soccer tournament and getting to and from the fields was a breeze. I would definitely recommend this property to my friends and family. :)

Aptos House

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time and the house is spacious and comfortable. It is a short 5 block walk down to the beach, and it is close to the grocery store. The house is well maintained and clean. With three levels the teenagers can have an area to themselves. It was important to find a dog friendly house and the owner was accomodating for our dog.

Repeat Performance

  • 5 of 5
This year was more enjoyable than our first visit, only because the Santa Cruz/Aptos weather was a ten. No fog and two of our three days were clear and warm only as that area can be. Thanks you allowing us to stay. When we begin planning our next visit this will be the house we will try to get. E
