Fantastic owners and property

  • 5 of 5

This was an unexpected gem. I was in Aptos in another rental which had no power so I had to quickly find another rental. Lisa was a life saver. She responded to my request in minutes and we were in her home within several hours. The house is beautiful and so is the yard. Great location for walks to the beach or local restaurants. For a vacation that started out the way ours did we had a great time in this beautiful home. I will definitely stay here again.
