  • Great beach house!

    "Our family of 4 (two adults and two kids under 2) stayed there with another couple and their two little ones (under 4) and we all had a great time. The view from the balcony was amazing, and it was an incredibly convenient walk to the beach. The house was well stocked with movies and beach toys which was convenient for the kids. We were concerned about the size because there was so many of us, but it turned out perfect. The only downside was fireworks - we were there over 4th of July and people in the neighborhood kept shooting them off until late. But we were prepared because the owners had warned us. We will definitely return there if we plan another vacation in the area. The house was well stocked with all the basics you need (juice, milk, soda, condiments, paper towels, etc) which made it easy for us who were already traveling with so much stuff for the kids."

  • Beautiful Home, Beautiful View

    "Our family of seven had a wonderful time! The beach is just a few steps from the back door. The house was very clean, nice linens, plenty of dishes, beach towels, comfortable seating & overall a great house!! The view was incredible. We saw dolphins, seals, and even spotted a whale from the balcony. Parking was very convenient, grocery store within 5 minutes, Santa Cruz city center within 20 minutes. We loved the house so much we extended our trip an extra day. We will definitely come back again. Thanks!!!"

  • Comfort and nice touches

    "My husband and I with our three married childen spent a 3-day weekend here. What impressed me was it felt like coming to a friend's house who trusted you to take care of their home so we had the appliances, dishes, linens and homey touches you would have in your own home. I've stayed in other rentals where you feel like the cast offs are used, but here, you feel like they have shared their best with you. The beds and linens were all comfortable and since we cooked all our meals there, we enjoyed the wonderful gas stove, high end dishwasher and fridge. We also enjoyed having a grill. The deck and chairs were a great place to hang out. The basics of spices for cooking, condiments and other cooking needs were also there. There was a drawer full of containers fro taking home our leftovers, which is a rare thing to find. There are a couple of things to keep in mind. We ended up driving to the beach because the walk back was steep but it was fairly close. The table in the house is for four people and the deck table for six. The living room is cozy and comfortable with a lovely fireplace. Seating was limited for 8 adults though, but the chairs were available. I highly recommend this house for families who enjoy cooking, nice things and close proximity to the beach. I exceeded our expectations in its comfort, decor and extra touches."

  • Everything was great

    "A group of us friends recently spent the weekend at Bali by the Beach. It was perfect! The house is a stone's throw from the beach, cozy, comfortable, clean, and full of amenities. The beach town of Aptos itself is wonderful and laid back and a great place to be. And communicating with Joan was super easy - she set us up with info on how to get in the house ahead of time, and answered any questions we had promptly. I highly recommend staying here, it's exactly what you would hope for."
