About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-6)

This is a comfortable, dual-level, family town home situated 1 block from the beach at Rio Del Mar … just far enough to feel peacefully apart from the crowds, but an easy amble to the beach. This popular beach runs south of Santa Cruz and boasts miles of sand and a variety of restaurants. There is also a shopping center with a major grocery store; sundries and hardware store and other shops and restaurants nearby. A 2 minute walk takes you to the Seacliff State Park and Beach with BBQ and picnic areas, fishing pier and walking path.

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.

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).

2 Bedrooms, 1 bath. Accommodates up to 4 adults and 2 children.

Parking available off-street. Extremely CLEAN, has patio furniture; and a BBQ.

About The Owner

Delighted to share this Aptos townhouse with new friends and their well behaved traveling pets.

The Owner purchased this townhome in 2011

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!

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!

Yesterday and Today

  • 5 of 5

We lived in Santa Cruz back in the day. Don't settle for a gentrified experience. This is the real deal. Contemporary with a nod to old school Santa Cruz/Aptos beach living. You'll dig it.

A beach home away from home

  • 4 of 5

Great place to relax and enjoy the area. The beautiful townhouse 1 block from the beach was perfectly located, spent my mornings on the balcony drinking my coffee and reading my newspaper with the sound of the surf in the background, could have spent the whole day up there. Long walks on the beach to start and end each day, dining at the local restaurants, felt like a resident of Aptos. Great little area, plan to come back soon.

Quick Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Easy to book, owner very responsive. Allowed me to take quick trip to the coast very easily! House fully stocked - you can cook your meals there. Grocery store nearby. Close to the beach! Very clean, exactly what is pictured. So quiet too. Thanks for a great getaway!
