This home lived up to all our expectations.
This home is exactly as listed and more. It is clean, very well maintained and equipped. The kitchen has everything you need and there are plenty of linens, towels, blankets. We were 6 adults and 2 children and there was enough room for us to hang out together or have quiet time apart. The dining area and living room open onto an amazing deck where there is a new fire pit and some unexpected ocean views! The deck was spacious enough for our children to be playing while we relaxed in comfortable lounge chairs. The location is excellent. The house is on a quiet friendly neighborhood street. And it really is only a 5 minutes walk 2 beaches or to restaurants.
Our host responded immediately to any questions and made our stay a wonderful experience. I highly recommend this home.
Hi Nancy. I’m thrillled to hear that your family enjoyed your stay at the beach! Please come visit again soon!
Peaceful spot with ocean views
The house was very comfortable, clean and well appointed with everything one might need. There is something magical about being close to the ocean and we especially loved having coffee on the deck in the morning and enjoying the nice view. The location of the house was great too being on a very quiet street with short walks to two beaches or a quick walk to coffee, pizza or ice cream. We hope to come back for another visit in the future!
Hi Cheri. I am so glad to hear you enjoyed your stay at the beach! Come visit again soon.
A Great Holiday Stay
Our three generation family stay in this home in Aptos for the Christmas holidays was excellent. The home is in great shape, has a well-equipped kitchen and was clean and ready for our arrival. Mike, the owner, made sure that our visit was going well by checking in via phone/text on several occasions. The home was very comfortable for grandparents, parents and granddaughters with a great deck on the second level with grill and fire pit. The granddaughters appreciated the beach equipment and the box of games which nicely supplemented those we brought.
A great beach was a short walk from the house, as was (importantly) the walk to Marianne’s Ice Cream. Sadly, we weren’t staying long enough to try all “105 Flavors”.
I recommend this home for all ages and stages.
I'm so glad you family was able to be together for Christmas! Please come stay with us again soon. Summer is great in Aptos! --Mike
Wonderful House for Quiet Beach Vacation!
THe house was a great place to call home for a holiday week. Tucked away in a quiet neighborhood, it's the ideal location for a week of relaxation. Close access to the beach is ideal for morning and evening walks, and the roof deck is great for midday lounging and still enjoying the sunshine!
My family of adults was all comfortable here, and the property is great for being able to home-cook meals and enjoy with a group. Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay.
Emily - I am so glad that your family enjoyed your stay. Please come back and visit us soon! Mike
Spectacular Vacation Gem!
This vacation rental exceeded our expectations! Our family, which include two teenagers and one recent college graduate found the home comfortable, clean and beautifully decorated. The home has spacious bedrooms, comfortable beds, a well appointed kitchen and plenty of beach towels and sand chairs. Don't miss the sunset on the deck! Restaurants and the famous Marianne's ice cream shop are an easy walk away as are short trails to two beautiful beaches. The highlight of our trip was watching the Humpback whales feed all afternoon near the cement boat and pier at Seacliff beach.....a wondrous sight! The communication and ease of the rental process was very professional, we cant wait to return! Thank you Mike!!!
I am so glad you enjoyed your stay. I saw some posts online about the whales breaching during your stay - you got a rare treat! Please come visit again soon. --Mike
Favorite Family Beach House
My family has stayed in this house multiple times. A family favorite for many years. The owner is great to work with, the house is beautifully decorated and has a great 'vibe.' There is something for everyone...great walking access to seacliff state beach and rio del mar where Pixie Deli is a favorite. The deck is amazing with a bbq and a fire pit. We have 3 boys now above the age of 16 and they 'love' this family getaway.
