Great location and awesome living room with a view. We watched the Super Bowl, drank on the patio and had a fun time. Highly recommend this place!

The Santa Cruz area has always been a second home for our family. We finally were able to have a vacation rental of our own, and we love going to Aptos for the occasional getaway. We love referring great restaurants, coffee shops and places to see. If you have a recommendation to us, please feel free to send the recommendation our way!

By far, our favorite thing to do as a family is have a nighttime campfire on Rio Del Mar beach. Rio Del Mar is one of the few beaches to allow nighttime campfires.

EASTER AT THE BEACH!

  • 5 of 5
My wife, daughter and I had a wonderful long weekend at the beach and used this great house as our home base! The place is in wonderful shape and very close to the beach. It has everything you could ask for and more. It has a quirky "winchester house" type fact..the fact that I've never seen so many light switches in my life! It was actually pretty cool! We'll be back!

AS ADVERTISED.....

  • 5 of 5
The home is very nicely updated with top notch fixtures. They did a great job on utilizing the available space. The upstairs was so nice and sunny. The decks were very welcoming. Loved the openness and windows upstairs. Good they indicate there are stairs, because they could be difficult if you had a toddler or an elderly person in tow. The owners were helpful and responsive. The location was fabulous!!! Loved being a few, short blocks from the beach, and I loved being only 2 miles from Nisene Forest (which is a must see if you go to Aptos). Making a statement next (not complaining), but if you have light sleepers, maybe have them sleep upstairs. Could hear movement upstairs when trying to sleep downstairs (but I think this is due to the beautiful hardwood floors). I'm going to be contacting the owner again to book another stay during the summer. I am a picky person to be honest, and I was very pleased with this home. In the preceding vain and in a perfect world, it would be nice if the couches were a little more comfortable (are nice black leather, but something a little softer would be perfect).

HOLIDAY GET AWAY

  • 5 of 5
This was a perfect getaway for our multigenerational family. Family from Colorodo, Muchigan and Indiana were treated to a beautiful & comfortable home, incredible weather, dolphin and whale sightings, kayaking and enjoying sunsets from this home's extensive decks.
The owner had suggestions for things to do for each age group and the local pacific roasters coffee was a nice touch.
We didn't want to leave!

APTOS BEACH HOUSE WITH THE VIEWS

  • 5 of 5
Perfect Girls's week end because of this home and its location. This home is as described in all of the reviews: modern and clean. Probably one of the most modern and one of newest home in Aptos. The 3 sleeping areas are very comfortable and close to 3 full bathrooms that were also well equipped. The kitchen had everything including an ocean view.
We had 3 vehicles, that were easy to park-- 2 in the drive way and the 3rd in the street close by. I'm not sure what the other reviewers were talking about a parking problem. We found the parking to be easy and convenient.
We plan to make this an annual girls trip and would like to rent this house again.

APTOS 5 STAR!

  • 5 of 5
All was great! The parking was not a problem as another reviewer described. We had a small SUV and Piuruis. Both fit in the drive way without any problems.
The home is sooo clean and much more modern than any of the other Aptos beach homes we have rented. WE used all the bathrooms and sleeping areas and it worked out super. We picked up some nice sea glass at Rio del Mar.
We will chose this one again!!

GREAT PLACE! GREAT LOCATION!

  • 4 of 5
This property is really nice! There are upgrades from floor to ceiling in this place. It feels like home and is perfect for a relaxing, comfortable, clean vacation. It's ideal for no more than 4 people. Anything more than 4 people and it becomes a little awkward, but still doable.

My only gripe is not enough parking. There is a 1 car driveway that you can squeeze a small car and a large car into. Anything more than that and you'll be parking up the street somewhere.

All in all, it's an excellent place, a good value and I would certainly stay here again.
