House was perfect! Very clean, nice inside. 1 queen bed in master with on suite bath, 1 other bedroom w double and single bed, 1 bathroom for everyone- great water pressure in shower! fold out couch. Open concept kitchen living room dining room. 10 min walk to gorgeous beach. House at end of quiet street, lots of lush vegetation around property.
We enjoyed our stay at Jeff's Rio Del Mar Beach House. The beds and bedroom layout were perfect for my husband, myself, my son and our exchange student. The house has a very charming, homey beach decor and is light & bright. We enjoyed a fun day at the Santa Cruz boardwalk and the next fun day bicycling Monterey to Carmel. We walked up to the Pixie Cafe for a fabulous breakfast each morning. It was a perfect house and location for our mini Northern California vacation.
Beautiful spot in Rio Del Mar. Cozy home, well decorated with all the appliances you would want. Just a five-ten minute walk from the beach so the location is perfect.
Great place, great area! My family had a wonderful sunny weekend at the beach house. It is lovely, spacious, and well equipped (great CD's!) - gets you into a vacation mind-set in minutes. The house is actually 5 minutes walking from a really nice beach, where we enjoyed the sun and the views (and our baby enjoyed the sand...).
Super comfy, close to the beach with nice outdoor spaces to hang out! Jeff was really accomodating and easy to communicate with...
We had a lovely stay and would definitely return!
House was beautiful and only a few minutes' walk to the beach. We enjoyed listening to the lovely CD collection. Had great dinner at nearby Cafe Sparrow. Jeff was prompt with communication, and all expectations were exceeded.
Went back to Jeff'a place for a second time. Comfortable, clean house at the end of a quiet, yet active street. Short walk to Rio Del Mar beach, a lovely beach with big waves -classic California. Great alternative to the go-go-go vibe of Santa Cruz, but when you want the city fun SC a 10-15 drive.
Fantastic stay...everything you need for a beach vacation. Full kitchen, nice-sized rooms...all clean and tidy. Thanks Jeff!!
Great location in a sleepy (winter time) surf town. Perfect little walk to a great beach. Saw a harem of seals! House is cottage-cozy, perfect for our family.
Wow! What a wonderful place for a getaway! Wish we could have stayed longer. Plenty of room for my parents, (visiting from balmy North Dakota) my wife and I and our daughter to enjoy a weekend filled with long walks on the beach, shopping in Capitola, delicious seafood, classic movies on cable, and a spirited round of Trivial Pursuit! Minutes from everything, beautiful house, warm and inviting, and every little detail seems to have been thought of. Thanks Jeff!!!
