      Beach house in Aptos

      This home is very clean and comfortable. It is impressively well appointed, the owners thought of everything, especially in the kitchen. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The only negative is that the house is on a street with a lot of traffic and it is noisy most of the day. Much quieter after 9 PM. We really loved the house.

      5/5 Excellent

        Paradise

        This is a beautiful place. The house was perfect for our family. The neighbors were friendly. I loved the location. There were several excellent restaurants with a few minutes. My favorite was the Public House. Grocery store was nearby. It was the perfect getaway. The house worked well for our family, 5 adults and 2 children. Everyone was comfortable. The hosts were great. I really appreciate the response time if I had a question. Without a doubt, I would definitely stay here again.

        5/5 Excellent

          Great House!

          Very close to he beach and easy to get to. Would stay here again!

          4/5 Good

            So comfortable and very clean!

            We loved the kitchen set-up. Comfy furniture. Great master suite with a great shower. Kids loved the ping pong table and all the beach toys. Owners were so nice and very responsive.

            5/5 Excellent

              Aptos weekend

              We met our friends and stayed all together for a long weekend—the house worked great for 4 adults and 4 children! We loved being in Aptos and walking distance to the beach. House had everything we needed!
