We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend - house was clean, well stocked, in a great location. The landscaping is beautiful and we enjoyed the spa both nights we were there. Aptos is a cute town, very close to Santa Cruz but much quieter.
Great Vacation Spot
One of the cleanest homes we’ve rented. Great location. Comfortable home and great outside lounging areas. Close to beach and great restaurants and wineries. This is our fourth stay here. We’ll be back.
Michael was a great host. He provided all the information beforehand and made us feel very welcomed.
We loved the house and enjoyed the stay.
The house was extremely clean and organized.
Nice stay in Aptos
Very clean well maintained cottage style house in Aptos. Unfortunately we experienced power outage trouble because of the high heat the first 2 days off our stay. PG and E finally fixed it at 2 AM of our s2nd night. House had no AC so 2 warm nights. But we were there to attend US Open in Pebble Beach, so location was perfect for Highway 1 access and neighborhood was quiet for a good nights sleep once P G and E finished working. Would recommend this house. Great spot to take advantage of all Monterey Bay Area has to offer
Cute, clean and convenient
Perfectly kept home with labels for everything you could ever need to find. Relaxing backyard with a view from the deck and a swim spa to relax in nightly. Very kind owners and easy interactions. Highly recommend!
Cute House in the Hills
Terrific house! Pretty easy access to everywhere.
Swim Spa was a hit!
Thanks for taking good care of our home. You're the best!
We are located 7 miles south of Santa Cruz, in the city of Aptos, CA, in the coastal village of Rio Del Mar, near the Seascape Golf Club.
Our home is 8 tenths of a mile from 'Bear Can Beach', down the hill on Clubhouse Drive, which has public parking and beach access on Via Palo Alto (see map). You "can" walk or bike ride to the beach, however, you would have to walk up-hill back to the house. A short 3 minute drive is recommended.
Seascape Golf Club is less than 1/2 a mile down our street and is open to the public. For details, and Tee Times, visit their website.
There is shopping and fine dining at the Deer Park Shopping Center, just a 1 mile, on Rio Del Mar Blvd.
