Comfy Get Away
Great location! Short 5-10 minute walk to the beach! Our group of 8 slept very comfortably in this large house. There were plenty of pillows, blankets, and linen if we needed extras. We loved the open floor plan and that there were two separate living areas and the additional kitchen upstairs. The house had a lot of natural light which was really nice. The only complaint we have was that we wish there were nonstick pans as it was difficult cooking some meals since they kept sticking to the pans. Other than that, we had a great time and wish we could have extended our stay longer. Even the little fur babies we brought enjoyed their stay.
Thanks for taking the time to review the Casa Rio Del Mar and we are so happy you enjoyed your time in Aptos. We'll stock the house with non-stick pans, per your suggestion!
Thank you for choosing Beachnest Vacation Rentals and we'll hope you'll stay with us again.
Would stay again!
Property listing was accurate. Enough sleeping and seating space for our group. Perfect location in Aptos. Quick drive into town for groceries. Quick drive or walk access to beaches. Two minor issues which were addressed with management. Garbage is on Friday morning, not Thursday morning as listed. Downstairs oven did not work during our stay. Otherwise all went great and we would stay again.
Was disappointed that getting to the beach was so difficult. Had to go to another beach
We are sorry to hear that, Ca. We wish you would have called us, as there are several nearby beaches within walking distance and we could have helped you. The closest, and the one you are referring to, is Rio Del Mar and requires navigating many stairs down to the sand (and back up from the beach). However, Hidden Beach has much easier beach access and is about a 5 minute walk from the house. Beach access via the Seascape Resort is also walking distance from the beach house. We hope you'll try us again the next time you are in Santa Cruz!
Casa Rio Del Mar
This is a very spacious and gracious home in a quiet neighborhood with a short walk to the nearby clean and uncrowded beach. The house was spotlessly clean and the kitchens, both upstairs and downstairs, were supplied with everything necessary for those who wish to cook meals and the outdoor eating area is lovely. The owners have thought of everything to make the stay so comfortable...window coverings to give privacy and shut out light, new and luxurious bed and bath linens. The location is within a short distance to grocery markets, pharmacy and many casual eating options. I especially liked that it is convenient to Santa Cruz and a short drive to the Monterey/Carmel area. I would recommend it to family and friends and hope to return myself.
