Extraordinary beach vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, son, father, and I just returned from a wonderful 3 day beach vacation and stayed in this lovely property! It is truly just steps away from the beach with stunning views of the ocean. When we weren't on the beach we enjoyed the ocean from the beautiful balconies off the living room and bedrooms. We cooked all of our meals at the house and found the kitchen well-stocked and a joy to use. The beds were very comfortable and the master bedroom had a really nice fireplace. We also used the fireplace in the living room. The elevator made this trip possible for us since my father is unable to climb stairs. Not only was this property beautiful and clean, but it also was very comfortable and in an ideal location on a gorgeous beach.

The owners were wonderful to work with and I really can't say enough good things about our overall experience. Highly recommended!

Perfect! Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

Wow, it's one of those places you love the more you are there, pictures don't do it justice!

The kitchen is fully stocked, the beds are comfortable, the house is right on the beach, sunsets are amazing to watch from the balcony or inside, ....we can't wait to go back!

Not to mention the property managers are so sweet and great to work with...it really is the best kept secret on the California coast.

We will be back very soon! (Thank you again for everything!)

Mini-vacation

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were looking for one last summer getaway, a large house, close to the beach, that could accommodate our 12 year-old granddaughter and her good friend and another couple. Here, we found the near perfect place. Just steps to the beach, this home has magnificent ocean views, well appointed kitchen and a nice big garage which our cars easily fit inside, along with all our beach gear. And, Diana and Kirk were most helpful for any needs we had. We had a great time!

Family Celebration

  • 5 of 5

First of all, many thanks to Diana and Kirk for their understanding, patience and thoughtfulness in accommodating our families' needs. Their beautiful and spacious beach house was a perfect fit for our family. It is clean, tastefully decorated and very comfortable. Our family enjoyed a relaxing and enjoyable weekend and some for the day celebrating our family and my 80th birthday. The beach is just a few steps away and easily accessible. We were impressed with the fully equipped kitchen making it fun to cook while listening to the ocean waves. Some of our family members are elderly and ill so therefore the elevator was quite useful in getting up to the second and third floors. We all had a very pleasant time and didn't want to leave. The off-season weather in February was perfect and we enjoyed the time on the patio overlooking the ocean and the sunsets. We all agreed that we want to come back!

Ideal home in an ideal location!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Beautiful home with wonderful views!

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying at this home for three nights and loved every minute of it! The house is clean and well equipped with all the tools to cook and entertain. What we loved the most was waking up to the views and sounds of the ocean. The owners were accommodating on a late checkout and a pleasure to deal with all around. This house will definitely be our choice on our next visit to Aptos.
