About Maureen Casey
This family home was purchased in 1960 and has been loved by our large extended family since then. Many celebrations have taken place in this home and it has always been a place of laughter, relaxation and time spent with people important to each other. We are delighted to share our home with you and those people special to you. Enjoy the sound of the surf, sunsets over the Cement Ship, with a view of dolphins, whales, pelicans and otters.

Why Maureen Casey chose Aptos
Because our extended family enjoyed the beach so much, our grandparents purchased the house. Our uncle built a house on the street behind the house and a cousin lived in another house on that street so we always had lots of people together. With the peaceful sound of the ocean and the gorgeous view from the deck, living room, upstairs bedrooms we have always appreciated this special place. Regardless of the weather, this home will leave you relaxed and rejuvenated. The beach and area provide the opportunity to take in the outdoors and enjoy the ocean.
What makes this House unique
The central location allows you to head to Monterey or Carmel, to Nicene Marks, to Santa Cruz or to the Cement Ship. Hiking, biking, kayaking, paddle boarding, bodysurfing, walking, sightseeing, and wine tasting are just some of the many activities we enjoy in the area. Unobstructed view of Monterey Bay from Monterey to Santa Cruz. Easy to walk to various eateries, walk to the beach, easy on and off the freeway.

Up Close & Oceanfront!
Girlz getaway #30 and counting! We've stayed in a few different houses in Santa Cruz area over our 30+ years of friendship, but this one DEFINITELY had the best view! Perfect size vacay home for 6-8 people comfortably(seating in the front room is limited) and very clean! Ample parking, beds were comfortable, plenty of bathrooms, smaller kitchen(but workable!) When we had a problem with cable working(Warriors were on!), Maureen the owner was QUICKLY there to assist! Very friendly and we thought she would have been fun to hang with as well! The upstairs balcony deck is awesome for cocktails/appies and a view that won't quit! No direct beach access across street so do your hw if you have kids that need access. Right above Seacliff State Park. Loved our stay so much! Went for hike in Forest of Nisene Marks State Park(had a ranger offer us personal tour guide!), went out to Severino's Bar & Grill for dinner and live music(don't get me started on the hilarity that ensued there!), had some Marianne's Ice Cream in Aptos, ventured out to Moss Landing and watched Wine Country on Netflix! Couldn't have gone better!
Best Rental Ever
We have been staying here for at least 5 years and it is our most favorite "happy place"! The owner is very accommodating and will do what it takes to make your stay perfect. They are constantly making upgrades to the property. The view can't be beat!
This home is beautiful and has everything you can possibly my need . The beds were super comfy and the linens were soft. The view from this house is everything! I would stay here again
We absolutely loved our weekend in this beautiful home. This beach house was fully stocked with linens, towels, and beds for all of us. Our favorite spot was the balcony! Gorgeous views, comfy outdoor furniture and plenty of sea life to watch. Lots of parking, clean and tidy home, would love to visit again. Thank you
Perfect home with ample parking , great views .
Very comfortable home with a great view! Beds were comfortable as well! It would have been helpful to have a book telling us how to use certain things like the fireplace and the tv! We figured it out and opted to not use the fireplace! The garbage hadn’t been picked up but I’m sure the holiday delayed it. All in all very pleasant stay.
We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay. With a new sectional in the living room, we hope you enjoyed relaxing and seeing the great ocean view. Sleeping with the sound of the surf makes for a great night's sleep on those comfy beds. We'll make sure that instructions for the house are back where they belong; after the holidays some things seem to have migrated in the house!
