Awesome property, gracious owner.

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the cleanest, well equipped vacation rentals we have seen in the Santa Cruz area. Half a block from a family friendly beach. Property owner is extremely helpful.

The best of the best in Santa Cruz!

Wonderful little townhouse right next to a great dog friendly beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week-end in Aptos, the owner was very responsive and accommodating to our needs. Everything worked and was well documented, down to the details like labels on light switch and a very handy drawner full of practical things you may have forgotten (toothbrush, tissues, what a great concept!). But most important is the locations, a few steps from a great beach at Aptos, a large, dog and kids friendly beach perfect for our family. We will gladly stay there again.

Quiet get away!

  • 5 of 5

This little townhouse is so comfy. Just the place we needed to relax. Even though we were connected to neighbors, everyone is very quiet & considerate. A short walk to the beach with a coffee place, deli or small grocery store on the way! Book it, you'll love it!

Another great stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying here, and we enjoyed it so much we didn't want to leave! We came in March and the weather was in the 70s the entire time we were there. Nothing was too crowded, since we came during the week! Marianina (the owner) is very nice and answered any questions we had to help us prepare for our trip.

The condo is a 5 mins (max) walk to the beach! My kids wanted to go to the beach daily and enjoyed using the beach gear the condo has to offer (boogie boards, beach chairs, pail and shovels). My daughter loves to play in the waves and collect shells. My son loves to play in the sand and explore the driftwood areas.

The condo has a well stocked kitchen with a stove, microwave and fridge. We use the Keurig-type machine daily and enjoy sitting on the balcony in the morning to enjoy the beautiful weather and sounds of the ocean waves.

There is a Safeway when driving in from the highway, where we like to stop and pick up groceries for our stay. It's only about 10 mins away, so it's easy to run back for anything else you might need. Don't forget to grab some charcoal to grill dinners on the patio BBQ some nights! There's are also many restaurants nearby and plenty more within driving distance in Santa Cruz. A binder in the living room has lots of menus for local meal ideas.

I love that Aptos is just a short drive the Santa Cruz for the Boardwalk, the Mystery Spot, state beaches, tide pools, etc.! It's only a 30 mins drive to Monterey, as well, where we love to visit the Monterey Bay Aquarium and eat fresh seafood on the wharf.

We can't wait to visit again!

Our Favorite Place!

  • 5 of 5

Once again we have had a great time of rest and relaxation at Beachside Aptos. The property is clean, cozy and full of the comforts of home. The area is quaint. The locals are friendly. The beach is only steps away from the front door for crisp morning beach walks, or beautiful evening walks at sunset. Pixie Deli makes a beach picnic easy. Cafe Rio offers casual patio dining or a more upscale experience inside. Either way, it's a very short walk, so have the extra glass of wine - no driving is necessary. lol The owner, Marianina, is very responsive and kind. We have stayed here quite a few times and look forward to when we can return!
