"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!"

"This was a great house for our four couples who traveled from Michigan for a destination wedding in Santa Cruz. The owner, Judi, was helpful and easy to communicate with from our initial contact through the end of our stay. The house was spacious and comfortable, and an easy drive into Santa Cruz, as long as we left time for the inevitable traffic on Highway 1. We were all able to connect to the included wireless network, too!"

"My family had a reunion in Aptos and chose this house because of the beach proximity and bed space. We were not disappointed, everything was as advertised. We had a great time, walked to the beach several times. Used the hot tub!! Cooked some great meals to feed our crowd. Tried the Pixie Deli, which is a must do! We commented that we did not turn on the TV the whole weekend! That is a plus for a group with several college kids. We will be back."

"Brian is very easy to work with personally. I was very impressed with his attitude regarding check-in/out times. He will let you get there early and will not rush you out. The house is more thoroughly stocked with essentials than any house I've ever stayed in and I have been a Home Away client for somewhere around 8 years. Be careful, a lot of "beachfront" properties are blocks from the beach, but not Betty's. This is truly beachfront living. The few neighbors I met, including next door are very nice and don't treat you like a renter. I whole-heartedly recommend this property and would consider renting it again (something I have never done). Thank you Brian, you make the difference."
