Hi Laura, I just wanted to thank you for letting us share your home for the weekend. We had an absolutely incredible time. The house was absolutely perfect, and the 'welcome basket' was a nice touch! A third couple decided to join us at the last minute & stayed in the bunk beds (we had only planned on two couples when we booked). The weather cooperated for the blues festival & even got hot on Sunday. The only downfall was that we couldn't have spent more time at the house, staring at the ocean & watching the dolphins! I guess that's what 'next times' are all about...We look forward to next year!! Thanks again!

My son and his fiance chose Santa Cruz beach to be married and we found this lovely home via VRBO in Aptos, about 10 minutes away. The home owner was very accommodating and pleasant with my requests and also made great suggestions for restaurants as well as activities. We felt like this was "our home" while we were there and actually did not want to leave at the end of the week. The beds were comfy, the views of the ocean were to die for and we were even greeted with a basket full of goodies and a bottle of wine to start the week, thank you, Laura! We will be back!

We loved this house and the location! The house is perfect. Clean, newly remodeled and just the right size. The view is absolutely amazing. It is really great to fall asleep to the sound of the waves crashing. The patio overlooking the ocean was our favorite spot. We saw many, many dolphins from the balcony and during long walks on the beach. Easy to rent, and really a great place to un-wind. Highly recommended!

Spent a week at this wonderful property in Aptos, CA with my brother and father as we were in the area for the US Open in June 2010. Very much enjoyed our stay, owners were very helpful, and the beach house and views exceeded our expectations. Very close to all amenities and a path to the state beach was only steps away. Highly recommend, we will be back with our kids! Rick, Ryan, & Doug Mackenzie, Calgary, AB. Canada
