Why Mariam & Jason chose Aptos

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!

What makes this house unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

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!

Beautiful home, love walking to the beach!

  • 4 of 5
First, I grew up in Aptos so I know the area well-- but I have never stayed down on the "flats" before until this summer. Our family of 4 (two teens in tow) were traveling thru as we are stationed overseas. My parents are older so I didn't want to burden them.. which is why I was happy to have found this home on VBO. I was thankful it was and is a clean, updated, well maintained home. We travel a lot so having a washer and dryer available to us (me) was a huge plus! Everything worked fine and I won't think twice about renting this place again! I only wished we could have stayed longer. (Note: a number of stairs)

Excellent Location, Property and Owners....

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend and my children stayed here for 4 nights for our second time! We had first stayed in February 2014, and we came back again for a longer stay. I love the location of this property, as it is a few short blocks from beautiful Del Rio Mar State Beach. This beach is wonderful, and we saw dolphins, seals and a few incredible sunsets. I also love that the property is close to the Nisene Forest, which is gorgeous. The home is bright and sunny and has everything you will need for a comfortable stay. When I had a few questions about things, the owners were very responsive. LOVED sitting on the deck of the main living room, drinking wine, and enjoying the scenery. A incredible plus is having a nice shower located on the back patio to avoid sand tracking inside the home. The house has 3 showers inside too. The home was very clean, and we plan on staying there again.

Fabulous

  • 5 of 5
Exceeded my expectations!

Walking distance to beach, extraordinarily clean inside, great living space, owners very easy to work with.

There is 1 bunk bed that isn't the usual twin size. It's a full-size bunk. And a lovely master bedroom. The other sleeping area is in the living room - two couches that fold down flat like futons. Having three bathrooms was a great treat!

Would definitely stay again.

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).
