This furnished vacation home has vaulted ceilings; tile and carpeted floors; large, open floor plan; and its own private deck. The secluded deck is a wonderful spot to relax and listen to the ocean. The kitchen has a bar counter with bar stools and a separate family style dining table and tiled counter tops. Dishes, utensils, and appliances are included. Heating and ceiling fans makes this home comfortable year-round. Enjoy the great outdoors on the peaceful and serene Rio Del Mar Beach.

Linens are included at no extra charge. Stove, dishwasher, microwave, coffee pot, toaster and blender are all there to make you feel at home during your stay (plates, silverware and cookware provided).

About The Owner

Grateful to have an Aptos home to open to new friends - and oh the joys of vacationing with your furry friend!

The Owner purchased this townhome in 2011

Why The Owner chose Santa Cruz County

Grew up visiting Santa Cruz beaches during summer vacations. Aptos has everything that I remember enjoying as a child along with the same charm it did years ago.

What makes this townhome unique

This Aptos location gives you many options - from beach activities, walking the promenade, nearby hiking trails to fun and unique shopping.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The unmanicured beach is close & good to walk on.

The Beach Bean (around the corner) is great for that first cup of coffee in the morning - friendly.

The bar has a good $10 drink & small amount to eat special each night. It worked for me.

A good base to explore from.

Phil's Fish Market in Moss Landing is fun (go light on the fried stuff as it is not that good). For great seafood go to Monterey Fish House in Monterey. Very very good food.

It was good to be outside the hype of Santa Cruz.

Great!

Comfortable getaway steps away from the beach.

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying here every summer for the past several years and always have a wonderful time. The place is comfortable, clean, well stocked and in a very convenient location at Rio Del Mar Beach. A quick walk to Sea Cliff State Beach and a short drive to Santa Cruz. The owner is very nice and pleasant. I will definitely stay here again and would recommend it to anyone.

Cozy and comfortable with ideal location for beach fun!

  • 4 of 5

This rental has all the comforts of home with lots of thoughtful touches. Best of all is the convenience to the beach and perfect early morning walks. We have s small dog and also enjoyed walks around the neighborhood. I was surprised by how quiet it was given how many visitors were there and our experiences in other beach towns. We enjoyed drinks and dinner at Cafe Rio and morning coffee and yummie baked goods at Flats - only a block away! Totally charming way to spend a weekend away from the Valley heat!

Awesome location & home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time at the beach house. Location was perfect, no need to load up in the car-walking distance to great beaches! House was clean and well stocked with beach gear, basic kitchen needs, and comfortable furniture. Owner is lovely and takes great pride in her home and making sure all is well for your visit. She spent time on the phone with me reviewing the area and fun options for our kids! It was a treat to be so close to the ocean. Thank you!
