We had a wonderful time at the cottage and would like to thank Jeff very much for the kind hospitality. The cottage is very well equipped, tastefully decorated and in a prime location. The perfect place for a beach holiday.jeff was very easy to communicate with and an excellent host.
What a comfortable home...our host left lots of information about the community. All the details about operating the systems in the home were available as well as emergency numbers (never needed). We were close to the walking trails at the beach and could even hear the surf from the porch. Every detail was covered. I would highly recommend this location to anyone wanting to enjoy time on the coast.
We just returned from our stay and loved it. Great area and walking distance to the beach. Jeff was a great host and gave us very good information. We have already booked our next stay.
This was our second stay at Jeff's place in Aptos. Everything is exactly as the listing and photos describe. The place feels like a beach house and just adds to the vacation feel.
The manual and sticky notes inside the house tell you everything you need to know about the house. Tonnes of parking and a short walk to the beach.
We were there to mountain bike in Monterey and Santa Cruz, so this place was a great stop in between both our destinations. The Aptos beach is beautiful!
We had a wonderful stay at Jeff's beach house. We had everything we needed and loved the location. It feels very secluded at the back of the cul de sac, which is nice. The kitchen and living room were perfect for relaxing after the beach!
