About the Property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 5)

Spring has arrived in all it's glory. Absolutely the most spectacular time to visit Rio Del Mar Beach.

As many know Santa Cruz County experienced a winter for the ages. The famous Concrete Boat took a beating. At Betty's we had waves across Beach Dr. into the front yard but our house had absolutely no problems and everything is set up for a fantastic Spring and Summer season. I want to thank those who reached out to us...Betty's is in prime shape.

Spring combines big surf, great surf fishing and wildlife abounds and best of all, no crowds down at our end of Beach Drive. We look forward to some beautiful weather and we will be taking reservations for April & May on a first come basis with a limit to 2 weekends per month.

Betty's on the Beach is exactly that. Just 20 feet from Rio Del Mar Beach. Betty's is a beautiful, well maintained family home located directly on one of the longest and most stunning beaches in California.

Whether you like surfing, walking for miles or just sitting on the deck watching the dolphins and pelicans, Betty's has it all. The perfect house for family vacations, 'girls weekend' getaways or a romantic trip to the beach.

Spring is the time for great surf perch fishing or sea glass hunting. Surfing right in front of the house has been the best in over 10 years.

The view extends from Pleasure Point (Santa Cruz) to Moss Landing. Betty's has a beautiful private back yard, with small pool, ponds and waterfall, provides a quiet spot for a BBQ or sit out on the top deck for a spectacular view of the Pacific.

Our fully equipped galley kitchen, with separate pantry area, is perfect for those who love to cook. It would even meet with Anthony Bourdain's approval with No Reservations.

The extra large living room and separate dining room overlook the beach and a spiral staircase leads to the bedrooms, master bath and upstairs deck. Betty's has WiFi, unlimited phone access, full Comcast channel selection including HBO plus Netflix and a great library of popular movies.

Our spacious master bedroom has a queen bed and walk in closet and access to the top deck. The second bedroom has 2 twin beds along with a separate sitting area that includes a comfortable sofa bed right off the top deck. We also have a 'smart' TV for those smart enough to figure out how to access Netflix and internet from a TV.

Every season of the year is unique and the reasons to come to Betty's are really up to you. Winter can be amazing and Spring might be the most spectacular time to be at beautiful Rio Del Mar beach. Quiet days, big surf and just the dolphins, seals and shore birds to keep you company. It's a great time to get out and explore and see mother nature at it's best. After a day on the beach you can watch the sun set from the deck then curl up in front of the fire with a glass of wine.

Summer at Rio Del Mar beach is the ultimate summer beach scene--sun, fun and we provide the boogie and skim boards, fishing equipment and best beach vollyball courts all ad up to a fabulous getaway.

We are taking Spring & Fall reservations. Summer is close to booked with many returning families. Many thanks to all our returning guests. This year, for the first time, we will have one week open in Sept & Oct. It's a first come deal, we've never had those months open before (family only time).

Due to the high volume of requests (thanks VRBO!) please allow a day or two for us to respond.

Please note: We request a minimum stay of 5 nights May thru Oct and weekly rentals will have priority and shorter requests accepted 2 weeks out if dates are open. Nov-March we have a 3 night minimum stay. April is 4 nights. We limit renting our beach house to 10 total weeks a year.

Googlemap street view gives a great panoramic view up and down the beach. Photo was taken before we finished front remodel and painting!!

Thanks for considering Betty's on the Beach for your next visit to Aptos and the beautiful Rio Del Mar beach.
