2 bedroom, 1 bath beach house; short walk to a great, family-friendly beach
About Colm Kennedy
Our family has been coming to the beaches around Santa Cruz for 25 years and has always dreamed of owning a slice of the beach life. We fell in love with this classic beach house with its light-filled rooms and open floor plan. The neighborhood and the neighbors are fantastic, and it's just a short walk to one of the best beaches on the north coast. We love spending our weekends relaxing by the ocean with friends and family and are excited to open our home to guests who share our passion for beach life.

Incredible Aptos home!
This amazing home so close to the beach was a perfect place for our family of 4. Our meals prepared at home, enjoyed on both patios, games in the back yard, walks to the beach for sunsets, movies together in the evening, running on the beach. It really could not have been more perfect. Kitchen was excellent, beds were very comfortable (best of our vacation), everything was very clean and accessible. Also it was an excellent location to afternoons at Santa Cruz Boardwalk and the Monterrey Aquarium. Just wishing we could have stayed longer... will have to wait for next year. Thank you Kennedy Beach House for great family vacation memories.
Perfect location, lovely home. Very relaxing.
Wonderful, tidy cottage just a 10-minute walk from the beach on a quiet street.
Everything worked beautifully.
We can't wait to return.
Wonderful beach house with no detail skipped. We loved it.
Great time away!
Beautiful home in conveint location. The layout of the home was very specious, and there was plenty of room for our family of five. Colm was very responsive and available, and the place was just as advertised. We were able to take advantage of local sight seeing, and were even able to do some walks to the beach, despite the rain. We would definitely stay here again.
Perfect vacation place for family or couple
Hands down, best rental ever!!! We enjoyed the house so much - there are so much to do in the house itself even when we had to stay in due to the rain one day. Everything has its place - very well organized and thoughtfully done throughout. The owners also provided generous amount of home supplies for the bathroom, kitchen, and laundry. The full size washer and dryer are much appreciated as well as the variety of kitchen items we were able to use. This house is centrally located to all the great places - Santa Cruz Boardwalk, Seacliff State Beach, and lots of wonderful restaurants like Crow’s Nest which has the best view of the sunset and their local jewel- Gayle’s Bakery & Rosticceria in Capitola. The bedrooms are also wonderful - comfortable beds and pillows, lots of storage space. The backyard and two outdoor dining areas are simply amazing. Our 3 boys were able to play some bocce ball game and corn toss game. The owners also provided a lot of beach items that we can bring to the beach (just 5 mins away!)- chairs, beach ball, beach towels... even the backpack! They also have some other items that would be great during summer which you can see in their photos. Their living room is also quite amazing- they have a wide selection of DVD, cable and access to Netflix. We enjoyed the fireplace and board games. The couch can also be converted to a bed which made our viewing experience even better. Lots of great memories for sure! Colm has also been such a kind, responsive and generous host. Thank you to the Kennedy’s for allowing us to stay in their home. It was truly a remarkable experience for us. We will surely be back!
