“Feels like home”
Reviewed May 29, 2014 for a stay in March 2014
person found this review helpful

We really enjoyed our stay in Aptos; the area is so beautiful and especially because of this place - so charming and so nicely located. It screams home and comfort. The owners have thought of every last detail. It has everything we needed to have a great time: lots of books to read on the beach, a whole shelf of guidebooks to help us plan day trips, games to keep adults and kids occupied, everything we needed for the beach (coolers, chairs, umbrellas, mats, and even kites), and every type of pot and pan and kitchen gadget you could possibly need. We spent a lot of time on the beach, visiting Monterey, Carmel, Santa Cruz, wine tasting and hiking in a number of parks (it was really helpful to have the access pass that came with the house). Our favorite excursions were to the redwoods and the aquarium. However, the real pleasure was to come home to our charming back yard and sunsets walks on the most amazing beach. We ate in and ate out (the owners were very helpful with recommendations). And after all this effort we slept like babes. All in all memorable week and and we have already booked a return trip!!!
