Perfect Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

My husband, grown daughter, and myself stayed a week and really enjoyed it. Everything you need is in the home. Kitchen is perfect for cooking. The beach is literally a block a away. Nisene Forest is a close drive for hiking. We drove up to Davenport for the day. Be sure to stop at Whale City Cafe and Bakery. Grocery shopping is close as well. Safeway is about five minute drive.

The only down side for me was the view from the house. I thought we were going to have more of an ocean view, but it is a very slight view. But the home made up for it. I would stay here again.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 3 nights and it was great! This location is one of my favorites in Aptos and the house was stocked with everything we needed from beach toys to having enough serving items that we could host a bbq for our family! Will definitely stay there again.

We just finished our third summer stay at this lovely beach house. The location is perfect, just a short watch to the beach! The house is very clean, updated and comfortable. I'd highly recommend it!!

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!
