Studio near Rio Del Mar beach

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Burnham Court, Aptos, CA 95003, United States

The Space

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.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • This was a perfect studio in Aptos! Dorian was a great host. There is a beautiful view and the space is perfect for a weekend away. I stayed there for a work trip but wish that I had more time to explore the beach and surrounding areas. What a gorgeous place!

  • Dorian was a great host. She was so present, even though we never actually met her! The fridge was stocked with yoghurt and half and half, and the place was spotless. Excellent location, only a 2 minute drive from the beach and close to everything. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to explore Aptos/Capitola/Santa Cruz for the weekend!

  • Dorian was a great host! She was not only helpful in giving me ideas of things to do (next time when I'm down here for enjoyment and not work) but she was also very kind and friendly. The studio was comfortable, welcoming, and really felt like a home away from home. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and will definitely keep this cozy place in mind when I return.

  • Dorian's sweet studio was just the ticket for us -- walking distance to Aptos Beach, restaurants, grocery store, and coffee house, and an easy drive to Capitola, Santa Cruz, and state parks; had lots of natural light; and was comfortably furnished. Dorian was a gracious host who provided us with helpful area information. We would definitely stay again, and have already recommended it to friends.

  • Dorian's got a really special place on the Hill overlooking Aptos.
    I highly recommend this AirBNB,

    A very nice space to occupy.

    She even Encouraged me to pick fresh sage from her garden for cooking.

  • We enjoyed our stay in Dorians studio very much. It was very quiet, pretty with amazing views of the ocean. The studio was very cozy, and we slept great. It was just what we were looking for!

  • I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at this lovely studio apartment. The wall of windows with views of the ocean and warm sunshine was wonderful. The apartment was clean and spacious. Dorian's property is fabulous and a great location for a walk to the beach!

  • Lovely studio. Dorian was very accommodating regarding special requests. Would book again without hesitation.

    January 2014
  • We had a fantastic stay at Dorian's studio. It was clean, cozy, quiet, and had a nice view out to the ocean. The kitchen was very well stocked and we enjoyed several meals "in." Dorian also left us with coffee and breakfast for our first day. We would definitely stay here again.

  • Dorian's studio was absolutely lovely. The large windows flood the room with light, and give you a view of the sea. There was plenty of space for my partner and I too cook meals, spread out at the table and do some work, and lounge and play boardgames. It's a five minute walk to a lovely beach, and only about an hour and a half from San Francisco. I would definitely recommend it!

Single professional woman, mother of two grown daughters and grandmother to two. I have owned my home in Aptos for more than 20 years. With my daughters out on their own, I have space to share. My house, the garden and the views are wonderful, I know you will enjoy all this loveliness and quiet as much as I do.
