About Casa Mare
We know that your vacation is important to you and so we do our best to insure that you find our home to be a pleasant place to enjoy local attractions, ocean beaches, and your time to relax and unwind away from the everyday. ==================================== My wife and I met in Cambridge, MA almost 30 years ago. We moved from the east coast Bay Area to the west coast two years later. ==================================== Casa Mare is our second home. We spend weekends (sometimes long ones since we love it here so much more than the hectic Silicon Valley) in the upstairs apartment. Our kids are grown so it’s just the two of us. We are available to answer any questions and to share our favorite places to visit and eat at. ==================================== Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. I look forward to answering any and all questions you may have. We hope that we get an opportunity to host your family and have you and yours enjoy all that the area has to offer.
Casa Mare purchased this House in 2011
Why Casa Mare chose Aptos
Location! Location! Location! ==================================== Both being scientist, we used a scientific approach, the Radar app, in selecting the warmest, least foggy beach community. We’re surprised to discover that often there is a 15 to 20 degrees difference with in less than 10 miles. We chose our home because of proximity to the beach and it’s unique architecture.
What makes this House unique
The house architecture provides total privacy; with guest having an exclusive use of the back yard, outdoor shower and BBQ. ==================================== We love to travel and to stay in vacation rentals, especially when traveling with our family or friends. For the past 25+ years we have rented over 100 places all over US and Europe and have used this experience in setting up our home. We furnished it with all the things that we’ve enjoyed and appreciated: tourist information, guide books, lots of books and games for adults and kids, cooks kitchen, extra towels and linens, and of cause everything one would need for the beach, even kites. Many guests comment on our location and how well-equipped our home is.

Great spot for our vacation!
Casa Mare was great for our short vacation. The home is wonderfully located close to a nice beach via a short walk and descent down a wooded path. The kitchen is well equipped, beds were very comfy and the living area suited our family of 4 adults and a toddler great. The garage/laundry area contained a lot of beach toys, chairs, ice box and beach towels and much more. Our toddler wanted to play in that area any time we would let him. Having laundry facilities helped us too since we had some wet weather. Our biggest thank you was for the included Monterey Bay aquarium passes and the State park pass. It allowed a short re-visit to the aquarium on a second morning of rain so our toddler could show it to Dad who joined us mid-way through our trip. Our hosts recommended some restaurants and we really enjoyed Marrianne's ice cream and take out from Zazeem's Mediterranean. With a little guy, eating at home was easier for our family and Zazeem's food was really good. Thanks so much, Marina and Sasha, for sharing your home with us.
Great Mini Break
Great rental. Perfect for our family mini break. Location was convenient for the beach, ice cream, Santa Cruz and Monterey. The property was clean and well stocked with everything we needed & more.
Great location near beach, comfy bed and freshly remodeled
We had a great stay. The house features 2 parking spots in the driveway, walking distance to the beach, subtle ocean sounds while laying in bed and all the amenities you’d want. No complaints and recommend it
Great location and cute home with personality
The hosts are wonderful and have thought of all needs during your stay. We were amazed how easy it was to get comfortable in this home. Within walking distance, you have a few bars, restaurants and ice cream. Seacliff State Beach is within walking distance, and the owners have provided a State Park annual pass, along with Monterey Bay Aquarium tickets. Both provide great options for daytime outings!
We will definitely be back. We loved Aptos and this home.
Thank you for the great recommendation. We are glad that you've enjoyed your stay and would love to have an opportunity host your family again. We offer 10% discount to returned guests. We await your return soon!
