Why Kate and Dave chose Aptos

The Santa Cruz area has always been a second home for our family. We finally were able to have a vacation rental of our own, and we love going to Aptos for the occasional getaway. We love referring great restaurants, coffee shops and places to see. If you have a recommendation to us, please feel free to send the recommendation our way!

What makes this House unique

By far, our favorite thing to do as a family is have a nighttime campfire on Rio Del Mar beach. Rio Del Mar is one of the few beaches to allow nighttime campfires.
