Guest Reviews

Great House with amazing space to entertain a large group

This house was like an interesting maze to explore. There is plenty of room to break away from a group for personal time and amazing group areas to hang out and have a great time.

Guestbook Comment

12 adults and 10 kids. We had great fun with the extended family (a group of 6 families) Had long walks on the beach and kids had a blast building complicated sand structures on the beach and roaring fies at night. We enjoyed staying in this house wall its amentias as well and its close proximity to the beach. We had a fantastic time celebrating the 25th anniversary of members of our adopted family and made wonderful memories. We are about to leave but we already cannot wait for another chance to stay her.

Wonderful for extended family

The interesting layout in this large house worked well for us with the upstairs divided into thirds for 3 families with children (ages 3 - 20) & 2 couples downstairs. Wonderful eating areas inside & out. The kitchen is incredibly well stocked. Enjoyed both the front & back yards & the walk of 4-5 short blocks to the beach. Love Rio Del Mar beach with Aptos Creek as a safe place for the kids to play. Appreciated the wagon provided to take supplies to the beach.

Ideal location, professional owners, thoughtfully designed

Worked perfectly for 18 high school senior girls and two chaperones. There is a neighborhood wide 10 PM curfew, so no loud outside parties, but for a school trip that is perfect! I\'m fairly certain one of the neighbors is closely monitoring this as we observed her taking photos of our vans as we arrived, presumably so she could report us should we get out of line ;). Great beach for playing in waves without a crowd is 3 blocks away. They do a pretty good job advertising the property, so I\'ll leave it there, but there are many other advantages to the property. Yard and house rooms are smaller than the pictures would lead you to conclude if you\'re not familiar with photography, but everything is so well laid out that 20+ would be no problem logistically (although due to Santa Cruz county laws you can\'t put more than 22 in the house). The owners were very communicative and professional. As I was leading a large group, I did check to confirm far more than I would have for a personal trip, and they were always prompt, helpful, and thorough in their responses. They know what they are doing and obviously have been doing it for a long time.

Friends and Family

The home in Aptos was everything the pictures said it was. The owners were very understanding when we had a few hic ups along the way. Everything worked out and we thank the owners for hanging in there. The home was warm and inviting, not fancy, but very homey we loved all the twist and turns. Our time there was wonderful, and we will rent it again if the family is gathering in mass. We were in Santa Cruz to celebrate the passing of our mother, the home would have got her approval.
