The Best Yet!!!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much Tara, you were wonderful to work with and this beach house was absolutely the best ever. We have been renting in the Aptos area for the last 20 years and wanted a change. WOW, this place was perfect. My family said it is the best rental ever!

There was plenty of room and the 3 decks were awesome. Sitting right on the ocean and listening to the waves and watching the suffers. The location is incredible and the parking was great. I will be renting this beach house for sure in the future. Some of my friends that stopped by asked for the rental information. They thought it was totally remarkable. Thanks again so much!

Great view but needs updating

  • 3 of 5

The views and location were fantastic but the kitchen, decks and upstairs require updating. The entire place needs a face lift. Three of the five sleeping quarters are accessed through the garage and require going outside. The views were A+. We saw otters, seals and dolphins from the front deck. The deck was also quite large.

We loved this home! Right on the ocean, walking distance to stores and public beaches. The home is nicely decorated and equipped with everything we needed. Short drive to the Boardwalk. We could not have asked for a better location.

It was everything we hoped for and so much more

  • 5 of 5

We found the house fully equipped for our needs. The view was spectacular at all times.The couch and chairs need to be updated in the living room for comfort and ease. Everyone loved it so much we're considering renting it again next year.

Owner's Response: Future guests, I believe there was a typo in the updating of couches and chairs as they are all brand new, pricey, lazy boy brand.. Manager

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

The home is very cozy and it has a separate apartment above the garage so you can have extra privacy if you're traveling with a big family. The location is amazing it's right on the beach. Tara was very easy to communicate with. My parents loved it so much they didn't want to leave. I would definitely book this home again.

Wonderful beachside home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here recently for my father's birthday with 4 couples and 1 toddler. The location was perfect for accessing the beach and for spending time with the family on the deck. We cooked many meals in the kitchen. (Bring your own coffee! :) ) Amazing views of the waves and surfers... Highly recommended for the location!

At the home..Moran Lake State Beach
Car: recommended

This home is right on the beach (tides/swells permitting) , with a spectacular 180-degree view of the beautiful bay from Monterey/Carmel to Santa Cruz, Santa Cruz city lights by night. It is also 5 homes away from the main Moran State Beach, which has sand access right to the street should there be a high tide or sand loss in front of the home. This access is also recommended for small children or the elderly, rather then the stairs in front of the home.

Enjoy world class surfing at Pleasure Point and WindanSea surf breaks right out front, or relax on the oceanside patio or the second story deck, BBQ and watch the surfers, sailboats, seals on the rock, otters, dolphins, pelicans and ocean activity.

Stroll or bike to Capitola along the beach front bike path. Enjoy numerous quality restaurants, breweries and wine bars nearby night life. Very close to the Harbor for dining and fishing.

Enjoy the peaceful setting and gorgeous sunsets with sound of ocean!
