Great Last Minute Getaway!

  • 4 of 5
Last minute, my husband suggested we get away for the weekend to the beach to celebrate my birthday. We have two puppies and haven't really gone anywhere in awhile. We found Happy House online and it was dog friendly so booked it for Friday - Sunday. We had a great time and were very happy with the amenities. Cozy, clean, half a block to a good Mexican Restaurant and the Seacliff Beach State Park. The backyard was fully fenced for our dogs and the bed was extremely comfortable. Amelia, the owner, was very nice and helpful. We had a great time and definitely plan to go back!

Great Week!

  • 4 of 5
Lovely little cottage within walking distance to beach. My mom and I stayed while my daughter was at Camp Monte Toyon. Beds were too soft for me (I slept on futon) but my mom was very comfortable. Had everything we needed. Little groc. store 50 yards away. Only criticism was it could have been a bit cleaner. I cleaned the floor shortly after we arrived. Walking barefoot on it turned our feet black. Really enjoyed the atmosphere and the people in Aptos.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the feedback. We want all of our guests to feel comfortable kicking off their shoes and walking around. Cleanliness is absolutely important to us. We do a full clean each time between guests averaging 4-5 hours. All of the rooms are swept and mopped. We are definitely going to get a different kind of mop that will be more effective.

The mattresses are medium firmness to please most. I'm glad you were able to find firmer comfort in the futon. We were also happy to be able to accommodate your family with an early check in!

Cute little house, great location

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time. The house was well-stocked with everything we needed, including a lot of board games and beach toys, which my kids loved. The location is within easy walking distance of a few restaurants and a beautiful state beach. Thanks so much for making this available!

We had a wonderful week long stay at Happy House! The owner was very sweet and responded to any of our messages in a very timely manner. We were so busy that we were basically only in the house to sleep!! We enjoyed trying out different places to eat, shop, explore and visit! This house was indeed a"Happy House!"

The Happy House is a happy house!

  • 5 of 5
What I love the most was being able to bring my four legged girl. The closed in area in the is great for your pet. The house has a cozy feeling when you walk in. Everything is so close and walking distance to the beach. It's very relaxing. Can't wait to book it again for next year.

Our beachhouse is a short walk to Seacliff State Beach, which is a great place to play in the ocean. There are picnic and barb-q areas at the beach and even a snacksnack open in the summer. A small beach and sea life museum is there and a pier to fish from. The pier leads to the old cement ship that you may no longer walk onto, but can see lots of birds and watch for different sea animals. Dolphins are a regular sighting from the pier or beach. A concrete walking path along Seacliff Beach leads to Rio Del Mar Beach which is just past Aptos Creek.

The Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk is not too far with plenty of rides and family entertainment.

Just one exit down the freeway (Rio Del Mar) is Seascape Golf Club at 610 Clubhouse Drive Aptos, CA 95003.
