About The Owner

Grateful to have an Aptos home to open to new friends - and oh the joys of vacationing with your furry friend!

The Owner purchased this house in 2011

Why The Owner chose Aptos

Grew up visiting Santa Cruz beaches during summer vacations. Aptos has everything that I remember enjoying as a child along with the same charm it did years ago.

What makes this house unique

This Aptos location gives you many options - from beach activities, walking the promenade, nearby hiking trails to fun and unique shopping.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The unmanicured beach is close & good to walk on.

The Beach Bean (around the corner) is great for that first cup of coffee in the morning - friendly.

The bar has a good $10 drink & small amount to eat special each night. It worked for me.

A good base to explore from.

Phil's Fish Market in Moss Landing is fun (go light on the fried stuff as it is not that good). For great seafood go to Monterey Fish House in Monterey. Very very good food.

It was good to be outside the hype of Santa Cruz.

Great!

Excellent place for our family!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Beachside Aptos for a month in November 2014. It was a perfect place for our family with 2 kids; it was very close to the beach, the cement ship, and the fishing pier. The house is a short drive from Santa Cruz (15min), Capitola (5min), Watsonville (15min) and Monterey (40min) and is conveniently located close to the freeway exit. The owner, Marianina, has been great; she went out of her way to make sure our kids had toys and books to play with, provided everything we needed in the kitchen, and was very accommodating of our requests. The house was clean, well stocked, and spacious, with parking space for our car at the back, and a nice patio to keep our outdoor stuff. We will definitely try to stay at this place if we are ever back in Santa Cruz area!

Perfect beach house!

  • 5 of 5

We LOVE this beach house!! Our family was in town for a soccer tournament, and it was the perfect location for a quick drive to the games, and a short stroll to the beach in between games. We also enjoyed nearby Capitola and the Santa Cruz Boardwalk, both a short drive away.

The house is so clean and comfortable, updated and SO well stocked! Marianina thought of everything to make our getaway easier. The front patio is adorable, the kitchen is cute has everything you need. Furniture is comfy and clean. The half bathroom downstairs and parking spot in the back are so convenient.

We cannot wait to return! Thank you!

Great vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you, once again, for a great weekend by the beach. We were in town for a soccer tournament and it was really great to be able to come back to this clean, comfortable condo to rest or walk the block to enjoy the beach. You think of everything to make your guests comfortable!

Words can't express how delightful a place this is

  • of 5

Pristine. Charming. Comfortable. Well thought-out. Incredible location just over a block from the beach.Every comfort you could want right down to the condiments for hot dogs or burgers in the fridge. We had a wonderful time. We visited the Monterey Bay Aquarium twice - once with grandchildren and once by ourselves - 2 very different but equally rewarding experiences. Had a wonderful dinner at The Fish Hopper just a couple of blocks from the Aquarium at Prescott and Cannery Row. Our table was at a window overlooking the Bay and we watched a couple of otters guarding their dinners from pesky seabirds while we ate. We went kayaking on Elkhorn Slough with Monterey Bay Kayaks. It is their off-season and we were the only customers so we had a 3-hour private guided tour. We saw a few otters, lots of seals and birds and enjoyed our guide who was very knowledgable and generous. We had not kayaked before, but his instruction had us going smoothly in no time. Can't wait to go back. Thanks for creating such a delightful haven.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Beachside Aptos. This clean, well stocked home is truly just a two minute walk from the beach. We loved walking along the beach and even found sea glass! Marianne's ice cream is just a short walk up the beach and was a great way to end the evening. The owner was wonderful and even provided us with a list of must see places. We took advantage of it and visited several places to see sea otters as well as Elkhorn slough - a great place for short hikes and wildlife viewing. Monterey Bay Aquarium was an easy drive and made for a great day trip. We are looking forward to our next visit to Aptos!

Great beach get away with the dogs

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay (we brought our 2 dogs but even those traveling without their pets will have a great time). Lovely little house 2 blocks from the (dog friendly) beach. We spotted humpbacks and dolphins from the shore, loads of pelicans and cormorants. Terrific dinner at Cafe Rio around the corner. Home owners could not have been nicer or more accommodating. Truly a perfect 3 day getaway!
