Another wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year staying in Cricket and Mike's beach home, and once again we had a fabulous time. It's centrally located and a stone's throw away from Rio Del Mar beach. The house is stocked with everything you'd need to cook and BBQ. The outdoor shower is perfect after spending all day at the beach, and the wrap around deck is a great place to relax. Thanks again, we'll be back next year!

Beautiful home within steps of a great beach!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four (two kids under 13) loved our 3-night stay in this home and plan on coming back next year. The house itself is very modern and clean, with nice decor, a great fully-outfitted kitchen and a nice view from the wrap-around deck (as well as a quiet, more private back deck for BBQing). Just about a block and a half from the beach, it was a perfect base for our days in the waves and sand. We can't wait to return!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

The house was a perfect for us. Not too big and not too small and we loved that it was no more than a 5 minute walk to the beach and market. Having the shower outside was convenient to wash off sand. The kitchen had everything we needed and the bar-b-que grill was convenient. Our two boys missed having a backyard, but once they discovered the deck went around the entire house, they loved running around it. The owner was very nice and responded quickly to my emails with questions. I highly recommend this place and would definitely rent it again.

Perfect for our family of 3!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Aptos for Thanksgiving. We mostly just slept at the house, as our families all gathered and cooked at other homes. This house was perfect for our small family of 3. It was comfortable and well appointed and centrally located for our needs. LOTS of steps, so please keep that in mind if anyone in your party has mobility issues.

Amazing Stay in Aptos!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the Ocean View house in Aptos. The home is located one block from the beach with view of the famous "Cement Boat" and has all the charm of a beach getaway. Each night, my wife and I would sit on the deck and watch the sun set over Seacliff Beach. The kitchen is well set up with cooking tools and all we needed for making family dinners. We used the gas grill on the back porch most nights and thought that was a nice touch. The main living is very comfortable and well set up - plus the Direct TV and gas fireplace were used each night as we rested from full days at the beach. Two bedrooms - one with a double / single bunkbed for the kids and the other with a Queen fit our family of three perfectly. The house is located in the perfect location - quite, clean neighborhood and a three minute walk to Aptos / Seacliff Beach. There is a deli, small grocery, pizza, Mexican and and coffee shop all within 5 minutes walk. We highly recommend the house for people looking for an affordable, beach getaway in Aptos. Cricket (owner) was very responsive and great to work with!
