About Myriam Cohen
Combined Myriam and Mikey have lived in Santa Cruz for over 35 years. We have 3 young children ages 3, 5, and 7, and spend a lot of our free time tromping in the forests here in Santa Cruz, running, going to the beach, gardening, and reveling in large cooking projects using our local bounty of available foods.
Myriam Cohen purchased this House in 2015
Why Myriam Cohen chose Aptos
We purchased this property to have as a getaway for us and our friends, and vacationers like yourself. This property is so close to Rio del Mar beach, so it's just a short 2 minute walk back home if you forget sunscreen, or you want to cook up lunch, etc. The house is comfortable, with modern, brand new amenities. An extensive total remodel was just recently completed, so all of the appliances, bathroom fixtures, etc are nearly brand new.
What makes this House unique
This house is a perfect home for a family or 1 or 2 couples to have a relaxing weekend so close to one of the best (if not the best!) beach on the central coast. You can walk this beach for miles in either direction, it is not very crowded, and the weather here is never too hot and never too cold. Rio del Mar feels like a small beach town, yet it is 10 miles to Santa Cruz, and less than 40 miles from the Silicon Valley.

Another great stay at Coast Queen
This was our 4th stay here. As always it was clean and well equipped for everything needed. Having a washer and dryer makes packing light a dream! Myriam is always attentive and quick to communicate when needed. We love staying here for our annual family picnic at Seacliff State Park. It’s an easy walk. Plus many restaurants to chose from and a great Safeway a short drive away. I plan on coming back again.
Fantastic beach house at Rio Del Mar in Aptos
This is our second stay at this beach house, and we plan to come back again. We love how clean and orderly the house is kept. The owners keep it up very well. It has a wonderful outside deck with a bbq and lounge chairs. It is only a 2 minute walk to our favorite beach, Rio Del Mar. Highly recommended!
Thanks for your kind review! We'll be glad for you to come back again!
Needs some updates
Downstairs smells moldy in the queen bedroom.
Bunk bedroom is a dark hole. (I slept on the coach and gave my friend the queen bed.)
Bedroom blinds are broken.
Bathroom towel rack broken. No toiletries like a small bar of soap provided.
The vent hood in bathroom moldy/dusty.
Upstairs furniture needs some spot cleaning.
Kitchen is well equipped.
Deck nice for sitting outdoors.
But the view is only a hotel. Walk a block to the beach is a plus!
Hosts replied promptly to WiFi issues.
TV cable news and Netflix froze several times and everything needed to be unplugged to fix. (Frustrating by the 3rd time.)
I appreciated you letting me know about the blinds - they had not been broken the week before, and I ordered new ones the day you told me. Same with the bathroom towel rack - fixed, and thanks for letting me know.
I have not heard about the king bedroom smelling bad before and it does not have an odor that I can detect.
I'll have the cleaners take a look at the vent hood, as this is not something we have noticed.
Great for a small family
This is a cute little place that is great for a small family. The owners are wonderful and responsive to questions. It has great appliances and a well stocked kitchen for making all your family meals on vacation. A very short (and flat) walk to the beach is definitely a plus for us with kids!
Thanks Coby! So glad you were able to stay here a second time, and can't wait for the third!
A very cute quant property.. 2 blocks from ocean. Would recommend.
Very cute house!!!
The house was very clean and perfect for my family of 4. The location was great. Santa Cruz and Capitola are right there. Close to Monterey and the Pacific Coast Hwy. San Francisco is a tolerable drive away. The house has everything you need and more. We will definitely try to stay there again if we make another trip that way. Thanks again to the owners for allowing us to stay there!!!!
Thanks Karen - so glad you enjoyed our house and the area!
