"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 Santa Cruz home has it all.......lovely, friendly neighborhood, very inviting and comfortably furnished.
Lots of thoughtful things for the kids to play with both at the beach (just a few blocks away) and at the house.
Great backyard that extended the space so nicely!
This will hopefully become a family meeting place when East coast Grama and Grampa come to see our Grandkids on the West coast. It was perfect.
Thank you to the Deal family for sharing their home with our family. We will be back!"

"The property was cozy and private all the while having easy access to the major thoroughfare. Unfortunately, Mary's poor roses were suffering from some gopher gluttony, but the garden and the view were a nice touch for morning coffee and evening wine! Very relaxing and homey, loved the Arts and Crafts accents and the beds were comfy. Mary was extremely personable and very available for any questions or concerns. Penngrove/Petaluma are super cute! Would love to come back with girlfriends (went with husband and a friend for a wedding---just enough room for three)."
