About This Listing
A lovely, light-filled studio apartment with separate entrance and bathroom, within blocks of Rio Del Mar beach in Aptos. Full kitchen, deck, privacy and quiet are all waiting for you, in a lovely environment that is also close to restaurants, grocery stores, hiking or biking trails in Nisene Marks forest. And just three blocks from the beach- you can walk for miles from here along the shoreline.
This studio is a great place for those who want to enjoy all Santa Cruz and Monterey have to offer, but also enjoy the lower key atmosphere a little ways away from the tourists. The house is secluded and the views from the garden are amazing.
Free Wi-Fi internet, though the TV/DVD are not connected to cable connection. There is a brand new queen sized bed, and I also have a twin aerobed that you can use for children or additional guests. I do have a limit of 3 adults or two adults and 1 child. And I also require a 2 nights minimum stay.
The studio is part of my home, with a separate entrance and private bathroom, and a door that locks between my part of the house and the studio. I am a mature professional woman who works full time and I am the primary resident though my daughters stay with me from time to time.
Please do note that I do not allow any smoking on the property- this applies both inside the studio and outside on the deck or in the garden.
Because the studio is a part of my home, I do want to know something about you when you contact me about dates. Please include a brief description of who will be staying at the studio and maybe something about why you are visiting Aptos.
I require a 2 nights minimum stay.
And while I have a small dog myself, this property is really not optimal for pets.
No smoking, no pets, quiet after 10 pm.
The pictures on the web do not do justice to this light and airy living space. We were welcomed to this lovely studio with fresh flowers and some food in the frig. The quiet neighborhood is close to the beach. We left the windows opened at night and could hear the waves crashing on the shore; quite soothing in the middle of the night.
Dorian is a very gracious and generous host. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. We would definitely choose this place again.
Dorian was a wonderful host and her home was beautiful! The apt is lovely, extremely spacious and bright with a beautiful balcony and surrounded by colorful plants and flowers. It is in a quiet residential area, a short drive from Santa Cruz and close to a food market. Dorian left us coffee and breakfast, and we really enjoyed spending a lazy morning in the apt. Dorian also provided us with very detailed directions prior to arriving. Overall was a wonderful experience and stay, we were sad to leave!
A lovely stay in a beautiful sun filled studio. Located in a quiet neighborhood it was an easy drive to get to Santa Cruz and to beautiful coastal sites. A very nice place to stay!
This is a perfect place to stay in Santa Cruz. High on a hill, this immaculate studio is full of windows and light. You can see and hear the ocean from here. The place is very well equipped with everything you'll need. The place is very close to the beach and several good places to eat or get groceries. Dorian is a great host. She even left enough coffee, fruit and yogurt for our first breakfast so that we wouldn't have to go straight to the store when we first arrived.
Dorian was a good communicator before and on arrival. The flowers on the table were a treat, and so were the strawberries in the fridge. The place was spotless, and very comfortable. Outside the windows were blooming pink roses. It was delightful to stay there.
We loved Dorian's studio! It is bright and spacious, and exceptionally clean. It looked just like the picture. We were left organic fruit, yogurts and coffee for breakfast! Yum! Finally, as I have asthma, I asked for it to be cleaned without fragrance and chemicals. The studio was fragrance free and really exceeded my expectations. We hope we can stay in the future! Thanks, Dorian!
