About the property

Unobstructed Panoramic View Of The Entire Monterey Bay, From S.C. To Monterey.

In a great neighborhood. Great for long walks, there are nearby hiking trails to the ocean. Bikes are available for your use. Access to beach is 6 blocks away, on 'Beachgate Way'. This room has all the amenities for your comfort. Close to everything. The studio has its own private entrance, and its own private covered porch, with lots of seating overlooking the ocean. Small outdoor kitchenette with well stocked refrigerator, oven, microwave, coffeemaker, hotplate, toaster, blender and sink.

This home has been on the Annual Symphony League Home Tour two times, and has been in the local newspaper, as the 'Fanti-Sea House'. Aptos is an idyllic beach community with a small-town feel and diverse population. Nestled amongst miles of pristine beaches, rolling hills, towering redwood trees, and strawberry fields, the community sets the scene for an extraordinary lifestyle. Situated on Monterey Bay's northern coast, Santa Cruz/Aptos homes are found within a progressive resort community. The area is alive with families, artists, local business owners, surfers, students, and visitors who return year after year. Amazing views from Monterey to Capitola. There are no better views in Santa Cruz. A private massage by a professional can be arranged. A dog may be allowed for an additional fee. Not suitable for parties. Security deposit may be withheld. If possible, email or text host 1/2 an hour before arrival.

Please e-mail us a bit about yourself when you first inquire about the accommodations..... either before or at the time you book. Although the studio is very private, we like to know who will be sharing our space, so we ask quests to share a little bit about themselves before they make a reservation. Check In is 3:00; Check Out is 11:00. $20. an hour for late check outs. Be sure and check out the video! It is located on the main picture, top left.

Great views, great and comfortable stay at the right price.

  • 5 of 5

We were really thrilled with the accommodations and the views from the patio right outside the door. The room was clean and comfortable and quiet. Perfect relaxation for morning and evening on the Pacific. Aptos offers lots of conveniences and plenty of places to eat as well as being close enough to Santa Cruz to virtually guarantee that you'll have everything that you need, including peace and quiet, nearby. We would definitely stay here again if we were in the area.

What a wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

We will definitely come back!! There is a beautiful view of the ocean - leave the door open and you hear the waves. Lots of nice, private places to sit outside and just soak in the ambiance.

The owner was delightful, and she shared her dog with us (since we were in pet withdrawal). She has thought of everything to meet any needs.

Thank you - it was wonderful!

Wonderful Ocean View!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Studio With a View!! The property is really lovely from the approach to the main house and the walk along the side entrance to the French doors of the delightful Studio. The gardens are lovely and private and secure. Our little dog had a wonderful time sniffing about and resting in the sun..Janell even provided our sweet little dog her own fancy VRBO dog bed!

My husband and I enjoyed the magnificent ocean view from the bed and loved falling asleep to the sound of the waves. A truly romantic, peaceful get-away.

The outdoor kitchen was a bit tricky, we had a short and had to move the hot plate around to finish cooking breakfast -- a bit of an adventure.

All in all we had a great time and would recommend this delightful spot to family and friends.

Gorgeous home, clearly loved

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous, cozy, and with a stellar view.

The knick-knacks throughout the property were adorable. This place has personality.

Only down side is we would have loved a burner stove to cook there.

We will deffinitely keep this place in mind for our next trip down to SC!
