Regardless of the weather, you would love to stay here! And, we've done some major upgrades to make your stay even better!!

Our cozy and comfortable beach house is located on the bluff above Seacliff State Beach and offers magnificent views of Seacliff State Beach and Monterey Bay. It has three bedrooms and two bathrooms and will sleep up to eight. The king bedroom has a sliding glass door that offers ocean views and sounds of the surf. The queen bedroom also has a sliding glass door that opens to the side yard. The last bedroom has a brand new double bed. There is also a small bonus room/den with a pull out double sofa. We've installed a gas fireplace log set in the beautiful river rock fireplace - to make it easy for staying warm on a cold winter day or warming up after a swim in the Pacific. Satellite TV is available in the living room, the king room, and the bonus room. Wireless internet is available to keep you connected. Our kitchen was recently upgraded with a 5 burner gas range, convection microwave and granite countertops. It is also fully outfitted with utensils and table settings for over 8 guests. Small appliances, pots, pans, and a wide variety of spices make it easy and fun to stay in and cook a meal. Or, walk to one of the several restaurants close by for a fun evening out. The Trex deck has a gas BBQ, outdoor patio furniture and is great for hanging out and entertaining. The driveway has parking for 2-3 cars. Just a short walk to the beach - this is the perfect place for a family vacation or a romantic getaway for two!

Why Owner chose Aptos

Great weather, friendly people and the seclusion of being above the beach.

What makes this House unique

Walking the beach each morning, enjoying a sunset with family and friends, walking to Manuel's for margaritas and Mexican food. Great food, golf, and shopping are all close by. Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk is only 15 minutes away - take the kids for a ride on the Giant Dipper roller coaster.

                                                          Wonderful House on the Bluff - Panoramic views!

                                                          We really loved this beautiful house up on the bluff (with nearby steps leading down to the beach below!). Laura was a wonderful and responsive host, who responded promptly to each of our questions. The Welcome gift basket was a thoughtful touch and pleasant surprise! We will definitely consider staying here again if and when we return to the Santa Cruz area.

                                                          Breathtaking views and warm and cozy home.

                                                          We had a fabulous long weekend at this Aptos property. I have never stayed at a place with more breathtaking views of the ocean. The house was warm and cozy with a stone fireplace and pine decor. Very nice beach. House was fully equipped with everything we needed for our stay and for cooking our meals. Marianne ice cream parlor is just a few blocks away and has fabulous ice cream! We would definitely stay here again on a trip to the coast.

                                                          Geat location, beautiful view!!

                                                          Had a great time at this house, all details worked really smooth, could sit on the deck and stare at the ocean all day!!!!

                                                          We had our 19th girls trip here. We stayed three nights. The house had everything you could want. Loved the view! Walked down to beach, walked to get an ice cream. We have rented a lot of houses and Laura by far was the easiest to communicate with. She was quick to get back to you. Loved it!!
