    "Home away from home. What an incredible place. Clean, well stocked with more than you would expect with a touch of class of welcome flowers on the kitchen table. What a way to spend our 25th anniversary. Best trip we have ever had. It is everything it is described as on Lynn and Jeff's website but MORE~. You can see they care about their property but more importantly their guests. Thank you for sharing your home with us. Loved it and we cannot wait to come back. Already have family booking it for their stays. Highly recommended - even the dogs relaxed."

I would definitely recommend this rental to anyone needing a peaceful and quiet place. We hope to return sometime next year."

  • Bali By the Beach Home was Very Inviting!

    "We recently spent 3 nights at Joan's beautiful beach home. She greeted us warmly, gave us a tour while sharing some memories that helped decorate her lovely home. Joan provided information of the area, both written and verbal, to ensure we had ample choices of dining, shopping & entertainment during our stay in Aptos. ‘Bali by the Beach Home’ is very comfortable, inviting us to settle in and relax. We enjoyed the ocean views and gorgeous sunsets from the big windows in the living room and master bedroom as well as from the open balcony. We grilled a couple of meals out on the balcony. One evening we played Scrabble outside while watching the sun set. The kitchen was well stocked with plenty of counter space to prep meals. The beach is a close, downhill walk. The beach is very family & pet friendly, yet clean, great for taking long walks or simply resting in the sunshine while enjoying the beach fun all around. Joan proffered beach towels, chairs, totes and a small cooler to us for any outing. Thanks for your hospitality, Joan! Your pride in your home, and in ensuring your guests are comfortable, was evident."

  • Visiting our Son for UCSC SPRING BREAK

    "Such a cliche' but "LOCATION-LOCATION-LOCATION". My wife and our two younger kids (along with our first year college son at UCSC) chose to spend Spring Break here with our two neighbors and their grandson (5 adults and 3 kids total). This house was very clean and had plenty of space for us with ALL the amenities. Jim (owner) was extremely accommodating. We've stayed at many VRBO listings in the states and outside the country and Jim was, by far, the easiest to work with. I would highly recommend this home. From the patio, living room, dining room or the deck, dolphins were visible daily. Great restaurants and cafes in the immediate area. (Must try Aptos Street BBQ just 5 minute drive from here). We definitely plan to return, especially since our son loves the Santa Cruz area so much."
