THE COTTAGE AT SEACLIFF

Aptos House Rental Photos and Description

Master Suite, 1 Full bath, Full Kitchen, Deluxe Sleeper sofa, sleeps 4

Welcome to the Cottage at Seacliff! This charming one bedroom cottage has been renovated & is waiting for you! Walking through the arbor, you will step inside to an island inspired retreat with original hardwood floors. Relax in this warm, inviting home & enjoy the ocean views from the front windows. A fire in the large fireplace in the evening lets you unwind from your day of fun! You can also sit outside on the back deck with your favorite drink & enjoy the beautiful, private backyard with a lush tropical inspired garden and gas grill. If cooking is your thing, then you will love this kitchen! It is fully equipped & includes a microwave, built-in refrigerator & double oven. The master bedroom offers a great night's sleep! French doors in the bedroom open to the deck. The sofa in the living room is ultra plush & also opens to a queen size bed with the highest quality mattress. We do not accept pets in consideration of guests with allergies. Seacliff Beautification Award winner!

The Beach: The cottage is steps from access, via two foot paths, to the beautiful Seacliff State Beach. This beach is known for its fishing pier and concrete ship, The Palo Alto. The beach is also a popular swimming spot and has restrooms and showers. There is a long stretch of sand backed by bluffs, and covered picnic facilities as well. The park also has an interpretive/visitor center. Highly recommended. Enjoy watching the sea lions play and the dolphins swimming by right off the coast! The distance to the beach path is a short block away.

Whether you enjoy surfing, playing beach volleyball, or hiking along the coastal bluffs, Seacliff State Beach offers something for everyone. A place to picnic with the kids, or the perfect place for a romantic sunset stroll!

Activities: You are minutes away from so many activities! We have included a book of things to do during your stay.

The Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk is 15 minutes(8.5 miles) away.

You may want to explore the forests of Nisene Marks State Park for hiking or mountain biking. Nearby activities also include: biking, spas, kayaking, fishing, surfing, shopping and more.

The Bedroom: The bedroom has a queen-size bed with pillow top mattress and is completed with Ralph Lauren bedding, ensuring a great night's sleep! There is a dresser, antique nightstands, bookcase and a full length mirror. The window looks out to the secret garden with an ocean view. The french doors open to the deck and tranquil backyard.

Living Room: Relax in either of the ultra comfortable leather club chairs as you listen to music from the stereo or watch your favorite show. The plush sofa is perfect for reading a good book or great conversation, and at night opens to a queen size bed with an Air-Dream mattress, the best mattress available. There are plenty of linens, pillows and comforters available to ensure a restful night's sleep.

Home Stereo throughout the cottage with a MP3 player adapter: You can hear music in one room or throughout the cottage by choosing speaker options. (Remember to bring your favorite music)

The Bathroom: A tank-less water heater ensures that you will never run out of hot water in our cottage!! Great after a day at the beach. A hair dryer is provided for your convenience.

Private back yard: The backyard and deck is a wonderful place to relax if you just feel like hanging out. We have an extra high fence providing privacy and seclusion.

In consideration of those with allergies, we are not able to accommodate pets. Thank you.

VERY CLEAN AND COZY LITTLE COTTAGE!

  • 5 of 5
I rented this cute little cottage for my husband, myself, and our three kids (ages 2, 4, and 8). It was perfect! The cottage was so clean and beautiful, and the owners thought of everything to make us feel welcome and comfortable. They even had fresh flowers in the kitchen and snacks waiting for the kids! My husband and I enjoyed the cozy and comfortable bed in the master bedroom, and our kids slept on the pull-out couch (it has a blow-up mattress). During our stay, we enjoyed a night at the Boardwalk, and it was only a 10-15 minute drive away. The second day, we went to Sea Cliff State Beach for the day. Although the sun didn't come out for us, we still had a great time, and it was so nice to come back to our cozy cottage and warm up after playing at the beach all day. We had a lovely little barbecue that nigh, and the kitchen had everything we needed to cook our meal! We loved staying here, and hope to be back again next summer!

COZY COTTAGE AT SEACLIFF

  • 5 of 5
The cottage is everything shown in the photos. We stayed at this great cottage while we went the Blues Festival. It provided us with all the comforts we needed to relax after the festival. Stores, shops and the beach is well within walking distance. The well maintained back yard equipped with a gas grille was a perfect plus to entertain friend whom came to join us for dinner.
I won't hesitate to recommend this cozy cottage to anyone who wanted to enjoy the area.
Thank you to the owner and Homeaway.com.

CUTE LITTLE BEACH HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely loved our stay at this cute little beach house. Ralph was a gracious host and greeted us upon arrival. We would love to come back and stay again. The only thing that wasn't perfect was the weather... but that's just how it is in June by the beach... a little foggy.

GREAT COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
This is an immaculate cottage that fit our needs perfectly. We were in California visiting family and needed a quiet place within walking distance of the beach. The location is convenient to grocery shopping and restaurants. The owner was very responsive to our questions. I recommend the Cottage at Seacliff to anyone looking for a place in Aptos.
