We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend it. Everything was perfect, the home was immaculate, all the accommodations you could want were available, and the kitchen was the most well-stocked one I have ever stayed at. We spent a lot of time on both the front porch and upstairs balcony relaxing, enjoying the sunshine, and reading. Aptos is a charming little beach town. Thank you for allowing us the use of your home. We will be back!!

Great beach vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here many times for vacation and love it. It is only a short walk to Rio del Mar beach and Seacliff where we spent most of our days. We usually see dolphins and seals but this time we saw whales from the beach. It's only a short drive to Santa Cruz too. The house is very comfortable and well stocked with everything you need. Perfect for vacation. I recommend it.

Unbelievably close to the beach! The beds are comfortable, the towels & sheets are very nice, the kitchen & bathrooms have everything, and the owner is very helpful and answers all questions very promptly. My dog also enjoyed being there! My 17 year old kids and I had a fantastic time!

Aptos Beachside Thoughtful Pleasure

  • 5 of 5

Clean, well and thoughtfully stocked townhouse just a block from the beach. How pleasant is that! Easy access to Santa Cruz, Watsonville, Monterey. Lots to do... the Boardwalk, hiking, zip lines, surfing and plenty of restaurants. My family and the dog had a wonderful time and would like to visit again.
