We loved this spot!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is perfect for a family of four. It’s a block from the beach. I spent several hours with the little one playing in the sand on a sunny winter day. Uber works great in the area, if you feel like having a glass of wine before bbq at Sid’s Smokehouse.

Third time stay!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this place now for three October vacations and we love it. It feels like home with just a short "around the corner" walk to our favorite beach. This time we had our new family dog and it went very well with the convenience of the hose off area. Pixie's is a great place to eat and the Café on the beach is wonderful to get a steaming hot cup of coffee before a beach stroll. This is a very comfortable and convenient place to get away, and feel like you blend right in. :) Thank you!

Beachside Family Fun

  • 5 of 5

So even though we were celebrating our 23rd anniversary, we decided we would make some more memories with our nearly adult kids, and what a great little place to do so! The condo is small and cozy, but well laid out and very close to the dog friendly Rio Del Mar Beach. The place was very clean and comfortable and I would not hesitate to stay there again. There are a few little restaurants close at hand, so you really don't need to leave once there; although we did head up to Aptos Village, to the Aptos St. BBQ, one night to catch some live blues music and some great BBQ too!!! Bottom line is this place is a small, but well appointed, perfectly located place with everything you need for a fun family beach holiday or a romantic get away. I'm sure we will be back!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend it. Everything was perfect, the home was immaculate, all the accommodations you could want were available, and the kitchen was the most well-stocked one I have ever stayed at. We spent a lot of time on both the front porch and upstairs balcony relaxing, enjoying the sunshine, and reading. Aptos is a charming little beach town. Thank you for allowing us the use of your home. We will be back!!
