Why Kate and Dave 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!

Great location, beautiful home - a fantastic getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The home was very close to the beach and accommodated our family and small dog perfectly! Three full baths was a definite plus!

Great experience all around!

  • 5 of 5

Great space! Super comfortable beds. Beach walkable in 5 minutes. Dog easily hosed off in backyard. Love the tile throughout the house. Got to watch fireworks from the living room. Nice and quiet neighborhood. Enjoyed the kitchen. Great location. Best VRBO we've stayed in yet!

Nice stay with Family

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice stay. Check in and directions were very easy. We stayed with my parents, my brother, his wife, and baby. We all had plenty of space. Although, the sofa beds upstairs must be used with the foam mattress to get any sleep at all. My husband and I enjoyed a nice walk to the beach, which is minutes away, walking. The only thing negative I could say was the cutlery was dirty and had food still stuck to it, which could have been from the renters before us. But a quick utensil wash and we were good to go. We enjoyed a lovely dinner and one breakfast at the house, which was easy to prepare and stocked with everything we needed.
