Rowlett, Texas

Great location.

  • 5 of 5

We were just looking for a place to operate from. Monterrey, Carmel, Capitola, Santa Cruz are all so close. What we found was a great place to just relax. The property was clean and well maintained. The ocean and shops were walking distance. We spent most of our time right in the neighborhood. Looking forward to going back every year. Eat out or eat right on the patio, it has everything we needed. I have recommended it to friends.

customer service

  • 5 of 5

I rented this property from Louise Schie for a mid August arrival. Unfortunately, I had to cancel my reservation with about a three week notice. The customer service I received, starting with a prompt reply from my initial contact to reserve her condo, through the cancellation process, was fantastic. Louise could have kept my payment in full as stated in the contract, but made every effort to rerent her property, saving me a lot of money! The whole process was very professional, quick, and Louise was very nice. I would not hesitate to rent, and hopefully stay, again.

wonderful summer weekend stay!

  • 5 of 5

i rented this property for my friends and i as a birthday get together. it was very spacious and exactly as it is described. i brought things (i.e., pots, pans, knives, spices, charcoal, etc.) just in case the house would not have any, but i brought them for nothing; all the things i needed and more were there! the beach is only one block away and we had a great time using the boogie boards. highly recommended!

Relaxing getaway at Aptos beach house

  • 5 of 5

We had a great weekend! Everything was there that we needed such as towels and bedding and the kitchen was fully equipped so we were able to cook our meals.

It was a quick, easy walk to the beach where we had a delicious lunch at the local Deli. The accommodations were awesome! The house was neat, clean, and comfortable. It was very relaxing. We enjoyed using the patio as a place to read and relax as well as entertaining friends while cooking dinner on the BBQ. We recommend it highly and hope to get back there soon.

It was very family friendly - a perfect spot for kids or as a couples getaway, at a great price!

Great price for great apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time here. The place is comfortable, just like a home away from home. Close enough to the beach and food to walk with young kids.

The patio was the perfect place for a casual lunch bbq. And we just loved the nearby - and very friendly - Pixie Deli. Plus there's coffee shop just across from the beach which serves a welcome mocha for a early beach stroll.

We would definitely recommend this place for families and for anyone looking for a nice place at nice price. I am looking forward to coming here again.
