Even better than we expected...

  • 5 of 5

This house is even more spacious and beautiful in real life! Our group of 8 was totally comfortable. We enjoyed the views from the deck and cooking in the clean and well-stocked kitchen. Aptos Beach is great - not too many people, amazing sunsets, and lots of bonfire pits. Thanks to the Paredes family!

Spacious, well-equipped, convenient, and clean.

  • 4 of 5

The only negative would be the master bathroom. No door. The ridiculously large tub was difficult to access (someone could get hurt) and didn't have a curtain or glass door to keep the water off the floor (dangerous). We all chose to use the main bath which meant we had to make a showering schedule. A walk-in shower in the master would be a big improvement.

Owner's Response: Hello, Thank you the nice review. The bathroom in the master bedroom is huge, as is the tub. We have contemplated putting a door between the bathroom /bedroom but the marble in the bathroom is so beautiful we did not want to hide it. I'm sorry to hear you had trouble accessing it. I hope your husband's clothes arrived safely. I sent them COD last week. Susana Paredes

Nice home, Impressive view

  • 5 of 5

Really nice clean house. Impressive view especially on the roof top terrace. We stayed for 2 nights and had not have time for the hot tub. Only complaint is the requirement to do two washloads of linens or towels which delays our departure by 2 hours.

Owner's Response: Hello, We are so pleased you enjoyed our vacation home. We also stayed in many VRBO homes and doing one or two loads of towels before departure is standard procedure. I apologize if your departure was delayed. Next time reach out to the owner to see if laundering one load of towels would be sufficient. R&S Paredes Owners

Experience not positive

  • 2 of 5

· Cleanliness: Minimal cleaning supplies (i.e. 2-3 dishtowels, no scrubbers, no kitchen cleaner) were available, making it difficult to maintain the kitchen day-to-day as meals were cooked . Homeowner asked that 2 loads of laundry be done, a first, before leaving the house, however there was not enough laundry detergent, so we had to make a trip to the grocery store our last evening to purchase detergent.

Master Bedroom & Bathroom: Air Conditioning would not turn on and there were no portable fans in the house, on a hot afternoon before the sun goes down, the master bedroom is extremely warm. Windows face west and there is a sunroom right off the master which adds more heat. There is really no way to cool this room down until after sunset and open the windows. Master bathroom was very dated and all tile (literally, floor to ceiling) – made it dangerous to get in and out of the shower. We had to leave a towel over the steps to prevent slipping while getting out. Additionally, since the tile surround was literally all around us, it was obvious the corners and the floor of the shower looked very dirty and the hardware had mildew and build up.

The floor plan overall is not kid/baby, elderly, or handicap friendly. There are 4 levels to this house – 1) Garage/laundry, 2) entry, 3) bedrooms, and 4) living area and kitchen on the top floor. When you walk in on the entry floor, you have to either go up or down stairs. Carrying an infant up and down the stairs several times a day is difficult, unloading groceries, luggage, taking down laundry, etc. Additionally, because the kitchen and living area are above the bedrooms, you can hear everything above you if you are napping or going to sleep early, this is especially difficult when trying to put an infant to sleep.

Maintenance: In general, it doesn’t feel like the home is well-maintained and is very dated. The railing at the walkway entry needs to be reinforced; the plastic carpet covers between steps are held in place by screws and small curtain rods; the dining rooms chairs all have large dark stains; the carpet is heavily stained, etc.

Homeowner: She would not let us have the address until 5am the day of arrival. Treatment unfriendly, and less than helpful when contacted. We had to file a complaint with VRBO the night before arrival. Our first unpleasant VRBO experience.

The house is very close to the beach and Seascape Resort. House is huge with lots of space.

Owner's Response: Hello, We are so disappointed that you did not enjoy your time at our vacation home. Below are my responses to your concerns. There is no air conditioning in the house since the temperature never gets above 78 degrees in the summer time. Unfortunately, you arrived in the middle of an extreme heat wave for the area , which is something out of our control. Since your visit we have supplied fans for all bedrooms since we are having a very warm summer in Aptos this year. The four staircases and reverse floor plan are show in the photos on VRBO, however it appears that it did not work for your family. The house is cleaned by professional's before / after every visit, and I have never had any complaints about mildew or stains. Nonetheless I will share your concern with them. I work very hard to be a good host for all my guests, have never been called unfriendly and not helpful. I do apologize for giving you the access information somewhat late, but I work full time and was in the middle of closing up my school for the summer at the time of your visit. I was not aware that you filed a complaint with VRBO, since they usually notify the home owner when this occurs. Finally, if you ever return to California, we'd like to offer you our vacation home at a reduced rate. We want you to enjoy our vacation home as much as we do. R&S Paredes

Gorgeous, well stalked house.

  • 5 of 5

The property is beautiful. We had 9 girl friends stay 3 nights for my 40th bday. Everyone was in Aw. We slept comfortablly, gathered for food and drinks with room to spare. Enjoyed the breath taking views from all 3 decks, and taking turns soaking in the Hot Tub.

My only feed back would be to leave instructions for the fireplace(we couldn't figure it out) and return some of the cleaning deposit if your guest do the 2 loads of towels you request.

I'd happily recommend this place, and return myself.

Thank you for sharing your piece of paradise.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the wonderful review. I thought the instructions for the fire place was in the access letter I send out but will double check. I rent through VRBO all the the time and washing two loads of towels is standard procedure for all rental contracts. I appreciate that you left the house very clean. R&S Paredes, Property Owners
