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!"

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.

The house was perfect for our family of four. We loved the location-walking distance to the beach, great Mexican food, and a convenience store. Everything was as listed and the owner was a pleasure to work with. We hope to stay here again. Thank you for a wonderful vacation!

Happy House cottage was perfect for our family of 4. Only a 5-minute walk to the beach and less than a 1-hour drive from the Monterey Aquarium, the Santa Cruz boardwalk, and lots of other kid-friendly activities. Don't miss the Forest of the Nisene Marks State Park, a short 10-minute drive up the hill from Aptos.

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.
