"This is a big, roomy house, great for a big family or a girls trip. There's a gas fireplace, 4 decks including the rooftop which has a BBQ. The owner is a great communicator, very responsive. The beach is not too far away, it's walk able, but there aren't sidewalks for about half of the walk, so keep that in mind. The house is on a steep hill, so keep that in mind for walking as well, but it does make for a view of the ocean. Beautiful trees too. The beds are comfortable, and the house is clean, the kitchen is well stocked."

"The location was excellent, just a nice 5 minute walk to the beach which my 7 year old was able to do no complaints:) Quick drive to Santa Cruz and Capitola. The house had all the amenities and was quite comfy. Will stay here again."

"My husband and I had a small family gathering here with my husband's sister and two nieces, preteen & teen along with our son, a toddler. What a fun spot for all ages! I totally appreciated the beach toys and games. The walk to the beach was super. We didn't struggle at all even with all the equipment and up hill home. The pool was tiny, but super. The home suited all of us and was stocked with so many plates, utensils, cups, glasses!!! Really felt like a home. The views were amazing. Our son even ran out of batteries on the front balcony and fell asleep on the floor to the sound of the waves - he has good taste in picking that spot for a nap. We would retreat to the back balcony when the afternoon winds would pick up and get some sunshine back there. We spent many meals outdoors. We found it easy to walk to safeway/grocery and girls even went to get a mani/pedi one day....all on foot which we loved. The cafe right by the property management was very cute and we had our other family that live nearby meet up with us there. We appreciated the little collection of CDs for music while we hung out at the home and prepared our meals. We saw dolphins every day from the balcony and seals would practically swim right next to us at the beach. The water was cool, but no wet suit needed at this time of year. Not much in the way of dvds or tv service which we couldn't get working, but we were down at the beach enjoying the leftover bonfires other beach goers had abandoned so we didn't even have to start up one ourselves and the kids could get their marshmallows roasted. We loved he quaintness of autos and did head into santa cruz for surfing and little short day trips to capitola shops. Beautiful view....what a great condo."

"I had family in town for our sons UCSC graduation and this house could not have been a better fit! I was blown away by the location and views. The house is spacious and beautiful. The large kitchen over looking the ocean is stocked with every utensil and gadget you would need when cooking for a large family. The decks are epic. We grilled burgers while watching whales breaching. The bedrooms are roomy and accommodating. The master bedroom is HUGE and has a large and beautiful bathroom. There are views of the ocean from every room. We saw dolphins and whales while eating breakfast every morning. The ocean is just steps away. The house is located on a dead end and quiet gated street. Other families vacationing in the community were very friendly and having a great time in Aptos as well.
We also discovered really great grocery stores, restaurants and cafes in town. The state park down the street is lively with volleyball nets and fire pits. And we took some great walks down to the USS Palo Alto and pier.
Diana was a very kind and accommodating hostess who I enjoyed very much chatting with on the phone while discussing the house details. I highly recommend Kirk and Diana’s home as a vacation destination! And I look forward to the next time I can bring my family back!"
