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.
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!
The listing was very accurate and even better than expected! The neighborhood was lovely with a gorgeous view of Rio Del Mar and an easy walk down to the beach. The studio was bright and clean with everything we needed, including beach towels and chairs. Dorian welcomed us with fresh flowers and first morning's breakfast in the fridge. We had all the privacy we wanted.
This is my first time with Airbnb. This studio was amazing. The pretty garden and 5 min walk to the beach. Dorian is so nice and give us the email for the specific direction to her studio. My boyfriend and I love her studio and will visit again.
Dorian made us feel welcome from the start. Before we arrived, she wanted to get to know more about us and the purpose of our trip, which showed us that she cared about who she was hosting. And even though our plans prevented us from meeting in person, she communicated with us throughout our stay to make sure everything was going smoothly. She even stocked the fridge with nice breakfast for the first mornings! The studio is beautiful, with one of its walls essentially being a window into the garden and the ocean behind it. It is spacious and has a nice private bathroom and a nice little kitchen with all the necessary amenities. And of course, it's very close to the beach. The place is perfect for a getaway weekend; we highly recommend it and hope to come back in the future!
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.
