Gorgeous beach house nestled at the end of a very quiet, dead end street in Rio Del Mar, Aptos. Our home is three houses from a large greenspace at Hidden Beach Park (great for children), which opens up to Hidden Beach. This is a very private location, there are no houses across the street from ours, only a eucalyptus grove and then the beach. There is a paved walking pathway through the eucalyptus grove to the beach, about a three to five minute walk from the house. You can sit on our deck and listen to the roar of the ocean.
Hidden Beach is a local’s beach located between Rio Del Mar beach and Seascape beach, walking distance along the beach to both. We enjoy having fires on the beach and roasting marshmellows. You can often see dolphins and sea otters at play from our beach. Our NON SMOKING home is COMPLETELY REMODELED and decorated in a palm tree/beach motif, with an excellent open, split level floor plan. Both bathrooms have doubble sinks and huge soaking tubs with dual shower heads. There is a gas fireplace in living room. The kitchen is well equipped and has doubble ovens and
5 burner gas cooktop. There is a flat screen TV in the living room with cable TV. All three bedrooms have TVs. There is plenty of off street parking. Our Beach House has all the comforts of home, with approximately 1800 square feet of living space, with great open floor plan for entertaining. There are steps leading up to the front door.
The back yard has comfortable patio dining furniture, a barbeque, as well as an outdoor fire pit. There are boogie boards and beach toys for your enjoyment. We even have a little red wagon for you to haul your things to the beach in.
There is a deck that wraps around two sides of the house with outdoor furniture, which is nice for lounging on, listing to the ocean and bird watching. The grove of trees across the street attracts lots of birds.

What a great home and location. We loved listening to the birds sing in the morning.Your home had everything we needed and we enjoyed every minute of our stay there. Hidden beach is now our new favorite beach what a great secret!!! Thanks for sharing your home.
My husband and I have been renting beachfront homes in this area for 30 years. I was so impressed by the description of this home we decided to try it out even tho it's not right on the sand. We were not disappointed!! It was so comfortable, private, clean, tastefully decorated...I just can't say enough! We walked to the beach each day and watched whales. It was so relaxing. Great kitchen in which to cook, and enjoyed dining out also at Manuels and Sanderlings. Can't wait to return and bring the grandkids with! Thank you Juli for being so kind and accomodating!
We had a wonderful time staying at this beautiful beach house just a few steps from the beach. Our kids enjoyed having the park right there, and the beach was very peaceful, not overcrowded or dirty like many Santa Cruz beaches. The home was well decorated and appointed. We loved watching the sun go down from the deck and having the sound of the ocean lull us to sleep at night. The complimentary bottle of wine they left for us was a very nice touch. We will definitely be back!
This house is wonderful. It is exactly as described. It is spacious and clean. The beach and a park are just a short walk away. There is an outside shower set up which was perfect for cleaning up all the sand that we tracked back with us. The bath tubs are HUGE and great for a relaxing soak and a book. The kitchen is large and well stocked with dishes, pans, untensils, etc... Having a washer and dryer available was so helpful when traveling with kids. The owner is so thoughtful, reliable and easy to work with. We had never rented a house for vacation before this experience and were a bit concerned about doing so but I highly recommend this rental/owner. We had a great time and hope to rent this home again.
Went with 5 friends to celebrate a birthday. The house is very spacious, lovely fireplace. Deck over looks the road - you can watch everyone walking to the beach with their dogs. Well stocked kitchen Highly recommended
We were lucky to have picked this home. We chose it because of the quiet location, and easy access to HIDDEN BEACH. The property was very clean and well maintained. The kitchen was well stocked and had everything one could need, along with a good assortment of spices... rice cooker and mickey mouse waffle iron. The décor is lovely, the beds were super comfy. The heated floors and gas fireplace were great and the towels were fluffy. Hidden Beach is a hidden gem, I'm almost afraid to review it because I don't want too many people to know about it, We have stayed near Rio Del Mar beach before and this location was sooooo much better. There was almost no one on the beach and we made a bonfire one evening and enjoyed a fabulous sunset. Our kids enjoyed the park which was also like having a private park in our backyard. The owner was helpful and promptly answered all of our questions. We took our bikes and did some bike riding, enjoyed the backyard BBQ and firepit ( the owners had left stuff for us to make smores with ) We cant wait to return and could recommend this home without hesitation
We picked this house three years ago, simply because it was so close to a park. We keep coming back because our twins keep asking to go to "our" beach cabin. I love this house! It has everything a family could want: a near by park and beach, comfy beds, huge bath tubs, a well equipped kitchen and smores! If you sit outside on the front porch, at night, you can hear the sound of the waves. Nothing is more relaxing, after a day of playing with four year olds, than sitting listening to the waves crash. It is also central to so many fun things: apple picking at Gizdich, fresh eggs at Galum, the santa cruz county fair, and of course, the beach boardwalk. I'm hoping we will be back next year...
