Another wonderful stay.

We just love this spot. Close to everything we like in a getaway. Beautiful surroundings, food shopping near by, restaurants, farmers market at Cabrillo College Saturday mornings. Will stay again.

Convenient location and comfy bed

  • 4 of 5

Pros - great location right next to Seacliff Beach, full kitchen, comfortable king bed, lots of sunlight

Cons - wifi goes out a lot, no AC so the house can get very humid

Overall good stay!

A beautiful beach house

We enjoyed our stay again. We stayed here before and loved it, and this trip was fun too. Just wish we could have stayed longer.

Beach Location!!

  • 5 of 5

This lovely little older home is in a great location at the entrance to Seacliff State Beach. It is clean and confortable and just as described. The small backyard and pet friendly status made my decision easy. The master bed is soooo comfortable. The friendly owner offered me the weekly rate when I extended after booking at a daily rate. I will be back!

Classic Beach Town Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Happy House was a good bet for us because our daughter had been there before with friends. Good service and setting in line with all those good reviews you see. We loved that the beach, redwoods at Nisene Marks (there is a foot trail access at the end of Aptos Rancho Rd), and lots of good dining out options were within walking distance or easy local parking if driving. Aptos St. BBQ offers live blues 7 days a week, good food (salad with BBQ topping was excellent) and 37 taps. This is a unique spot to blend walking/relaxation/good food/mountain biking (again Nisene Marks) and scenery into one package.

Our beachhouse is a short walk to Seacliff State Beach, which is a great place to play in the ocean. There are picnic and barb-q areas at the beach and even a snacksnack open in the summer. A small beach and sea life museum is there and a pier to fish from. The pier leads to the old cement ship that you may no longer walk onto, but can see lots of birds and watch for different sea animals. Dolphins are a regular sighting from the pier or beach. A concrete walking path along Seacliff Beach leads to Rio Del Mar Beach which is just past Aptos Creek.

The Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk is not too far with plenty of rides and family entertainment.

Just one exit down the freeway (Rio Del Mar) is Seascape Golf Club at 610 Clubhouse Drive Aptos, CA 95003.
