About the property

Welcome to our Ridgeview home, located in a prestigious yet family friendly neighborhood in Aptos. Nested on a knoll at the end of a private road, this estate provides privacy and lots of parking. You will find yourself admiring the view out of floor-to-ceiling windows providing panoramic costal views of Monterey Bay and Santa Cruz County.

This estate has 4 oversize bedrooms. Inside the home you will find 3 ½ bathrooms. There is also an additional bathroom located off of the sun deck for your convenience when entertaining outside or wanting to enjoy some time in the hot tub. This home is spacious and clean inside and out.

There is a large dining room which can comfortably seat 16 people at a solid wood dining table made custom for this house. You’ll also find 2 additional tables that each seat 6 in both the kitchen nook and outside on the patio.

The living room has high cathedral style ceilings and a beautiful ocean view, a wood burning fireplace and a 55” TV and DVD player. The great room and dining room all flow together making a wonderful place to gather.

We have 2 beautiful master suites. One is located on the second floor with a king bed & 2 twin beds. The on-suitebathroom has a tile-tub/shower combo made from custom imported tiles from Italy. It’s equipped with a flat screen TV and expansive ocean views and a sliding door leading out to a deck.

Both bedrooms are equipped with a flat screen TV and have expansive ocean views and a sliding door leading out to a deck. These two bedrooms share a large bathroom with a shower.

A sitting room is located upstairs with amazing ocean views and is a wonderful place to enjoy a cup of coffee, read a book or just sit and relax.

The 4th bathroom is a half bath located right off the entry and living room and does not contain a shower. The 5th bathroom mentioned earlier is located off the covered sundeck which does have a shower.

About Crystal Myers

All though I don't own this property, I have lived in Santa Cruz all of my life. My daughter and I love to travel the world but we always love coming back home to Santa Cruz. I have been running vacation rentals for the past 7 years and decided that I would manage this beautiful property to people who would like to visit Santa Cruz County.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Perfect for ladies getaway or family reunions ***** (5 stars)

The panoramic views of the coast from the balconies are beautiful. Grandious and comfy with a large dining room to fit everyone for dinners. Comfortable beds, wonderful decor and Crystal is so nice and goes the extra step to make sure your stay is pleasurable. (Review moved from old listing)

Wonderful & Perfect Family Getaway...

  • 5 of 5

This home was the perfect getaway for my entire immediate family. The home was enormous and more then enough room for us to enjoy such a wonderful weekend together. The home was equipped and furnished perfectly. However Bar Stools in the kitchen would be a nice touch, but this was never an issue. More of a suggestion really ;)...

We did experience one problem with a bathroom leak late into the night on our first night. But the property manager Crystal was Johnny on the spot (10pm) - fixed the problem immediately and went above and beyond in making sure we enjoyed our stay. The Attention to Detail and Service is top notch! If we ever visit Aptos, CA again we will surely look to rent this home if it is available! I recommend this home!

Great venue for large group!

  • 5 of 5

My extended family (14 of us, ages 19-90) stayed here since one of our cousins got married in nearby Ben Lomond. The place was perfect, especially for my great aunt who needed an ADA accessible restroom on the first floor. The four bedrooms were large, each with a large bed and at least two smaller twin sized beds (so plenty of extra beds). The living room was spacious, and the dining table was a gorgeous wooden table that fit a huge spread of food AND anyone who wanted to sit. The deck had comfortable chairs, a magnificent view, umbrellas, heat lamps, and a grill that we used for an outdoor meal. The place is a bit out of the way, but it's perfect if you want to have a lot of time to spend together. My family loved it and Crystal was easy to communicate with. We would definitely stay here again!

Amazing Place!!!

  • 5 of 5

We came in with a group of 18 people, and couldn't be happier about our experience with this property.

The house is just perfect for large groups, and the accommodations are excellent. The view is breathtaking, the beds are super comfortable, and the best part for us was the dining table, as there was big enough for everybody to seat together and share a meal.

The property manager, Crystal, was friendly, responsible, and provided us with lots of info to help make our experience even better.

There is plenty of room for everyone to have their own space, and not feel crowed. The kitchen is well equipped, and there is an extra bathroom outside, which comes in useful with the boys :)

Incredible property, and worth every penny!!!!

Beautiful home and host

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with a group of friends over a weekend in this amazing home. The views alone would have been worth it! Our host, Crystal, was extremely helpful, and prompt to respond to our inquiries. We would certainly stay again!
