Great vacation rental
The pictures on the listing don't do this home justice. The place is actually nicer in person than what you see on the listing and it's got a pretty good view. I would just say keep in mind that the house doesn't have many separated sleeping quarters but does have a few air mattresses provided. All things considered I would definitely stay here again.
Thank you for the nice review. The ocean views are great, and fortunately you had excellent weather during your visit. You are correct, the house is spacious enough to accomodate 10 people comfortably, even if some of the accommodations are not in a private room.
Please contact us again, should you return to Aptos.
Great view, just wish we could utilize the property more as we were busy outside of the home. There was only one extra toilet paper roll which was a hassle. We were too busy to try and ask for more toilet paper as we had events to attend to. But place was what we needed it for: sleep.
Thank you for the nice review. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. You were lucky since the weather was beautiful. I will speak with the cleaning company about the Toilet Paper issue. You also could have contacted me or my husband and we could have helped you out.
Please contact us again if you ever return to Aptos.
Great place to stay and just a 15-20 walk to the beach!
We used this rental property for a quick weekend getaway as well as a place to meet (a group of us organize dance programs for youth and are planning our next season), and the common area was spacious enough for 8 of us to meet, do break-out sessions, have meals together, as well as just hang out! Rooms were a good size and it was awesome having 2 1/2 bathrooms for 8 people. Wifi was strong, plenty of TVs and Netflix available, really quiet neighborhood, and really was a great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the Bay Area. Although the house is a little older, it was fairly clean despite normal wear and tear.
We used the kitchen quite a lot since we made our own meals, but not all the appliances worked (i.e. the water dispenser on the fridge was broken, so we ended up buying jugs of bottled water, and the trash compactor didn't seem to work at all). The pots and pans are ready to be replaced (the nonstick coating to all the pots and pans were scratching off). This was also the first property I've rented where we were asked to do 2 loads of laundry and fold. And when we arrived there was still a load of laundry in the dryer that was never folded. Typically, I've only been asked to just start a load and leave the rest in the laundry room/cabinet. There also wasn't any extra toilet paper or paper towels left to replace rolls. But these are pretty minor things considering how affordable this property was to rent and so close to the beach!
Overall, our stay was great, and I would consider renting this house again and just come more prepared if we are to use the kitchen heavily again. We would remember to bring a couple rolls of paper towels, toilet paper, and some of our own kitchen items and not rely so heavily on what is available at the home.
Thank you for the nice review. I appreciate your willingness to leave us honest feed back. We will be updating all the pots and pans in the kitchen within the next few weeks. I will remind the housekeeper about supplying paper towels and toilet paper when she comes into to clean.
R & S Paredes
This home is beautiful and a perfect location for our needs. The owner was easy to work with and very accommodating. The home was clean and comfortable. We had a memorable weekend.
Thank you for the great review. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay at our vacation home.
Great location, good for kids
The home is in a prime location a 15 minute walk from the beach. Hot tub is exceptional, bedrooms are comfy, and there are beautiful ocean views throughout.
On the downside, the place is pretty worn. The pots and pans are unusable, unless you want old flaky Teflon in your meal. Almost all of the toilet paper holders are broken or about to break. The shower curtain in the guest bath is moldy. There was also a pan filled with bacon grease in the oven when we arrived but that was, I assume, a one time oversight.
If you’re looking for a place to crash with a big family, and aren’t too picky about minor details, this could be your spot.
Thank you for your candid review. I will review your comments and make the requested changes.
Great House for a family vacation
Everyone in my family group commented on how comfortable the beds were, which we really appreciated.
The house has a unique design, to capture an ocean view. The living room, dining room and kitchen are on the top floor, (with an outdoor deck), so a flight and a half up from the front door. The bedrooms are on the middle floor (with a deck and hot tub off the master), a half flight up from the front door. The laundry room, which has a fold out sofa but no window, is a half flight down from the front door. Lots of space and light. A great location for spending a couple days on the coast - we spent time in Santa Cruz one day, and Monterey another.
Thank you for the nice review. We work hard to ensure our vacation home is warm, inviting and comfortable for all who stay there.
Please look us up again should you return to Aptos.
