The Space

Your bedroom has a comfortable queen sized bed that sleeps two. There's a sliding door that opens to a private deck in the back yard, as well as a private bathroom with a tub and shower. Hear the ocean while you sleep! Close to Hwy. 1 bike route.

You'll have your own room and bathroom with tub and shower. There's a door that opens to a deck and back yard. We also have another room with a futon that is available to use by arrangement, for an additional fee. Nearby is a park with a trail leading to the beach. In a few minutes you can walk to restaurants and to the resort that has a very nice bar (with live music sometimes) and restaurant.

You have access to the downstairs bedroom, bathroom and outside deck. Free parking on the street.
Your room includes coffee or tea and a continental breakfast.

You will have the downstairs to yourselves, as our main living space is upstairs. I'll bring your (continental) breakfast down to you at a pre-arranged time.

Our part of the Monterey Bay area is known for beautiful beaches, redwood forests, state parks, Pinot Noir and proximity to Bay Area cities San Francisco, Oakland and Palo Alto. We are also near Santa Cruz, Monterey, Carmel, Point Lobos and Big Sur- lots to do and see! Seascape Resort in the neighborhood is the venue for many events and weddings.
I can help you with directions and things to do- such as wine tasting, bike trails, and local events.

It's best to arrive by car. You can get around by bus, but it's time-consuming and not very convenient. Many people bike here but mostly for recreation, since there are bike trails and beautiful scenery nearby.

I can make you dinner if you like, for $25 per person. Let me know of any special dietary needs, such as gluten-free or vegan.

Other Things to Note

We need to add an 11% tax on the room, which must be collected from you, not airbnb. This is a county requirement. It comes to $8.80 per night. Please be prepared to pay it in cash.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • This was my first airbnb experience and it was very good. Cheri was very friendly and welcoming. She even offered to drive me around to see some local sights, which I thought was very generous! She and her husband, Ronald were very accommodating, giving me lots of tips about the area and offering the use of a laptop if I wanted it. Plus, a beautiful bluff walk and beach are just down the street!

    The bedroom and nearby bathroom were very nice and I especially enjoyed the deck and yard right outside my room. That's where I enjoyed the yogurt, strawberries and banana bread Cheri brought me for breakfast! Thank you, Cheri and Ronald for helping my visit to Aptos be such a wonderful one!

  • Nice room with nice hosts in a quiet neighborhood. Cheri went out of her way to be helpful.

  • Our stay with Cheri was lovely. The guestroom was spacious and comfortable. The small heater worked well to make the room cozy. We woke up to a nice breakfast of coffee, fresh fruit, and toast with yummy jam. Communication with Cheri was great. She was very friendly and easy to talk to, and accommodated us with only a few days notice. Excellent experience.

  • Cheri was just wonderful in her responsiveness as I arranged a room for me and my stepmother to attend a wedding shower in Aptos. Unfortunately, I was ill and not able to go. My stepmother went alone and reported back that she thoroughly enjoyed her stay and that Cheri was a lovely host. It sounds like they hit it off famously, which really pleased me as this was my stepmother's first Airbnb experience, and I wanted it to be a positive one for her! Thank you Cheri for ensuring that Adriana had a pleasant stay. I'm sure you two world travelers had a lot to talk about. I look forward to meeting you, when I eventually fly down to CA after my hearing returns! Kind wishes. Thank you, thank you!

    Thanks Diana! That's very kind of you to pass along your step-mom's experience. She was a perfect guest! Hope you are much better and that you can come another time!

  • Great place to stay, and Cheri is a great host. (And makes a great apple cobbler!) The guest room was large and clean, had a very comfortable bed, and after a two minute walk, your strolling along a path on a cliff looking over the blue Pacific. I could have spent a week there! Thanks Cheri and Ronald!

I'm a French and English teacher, with 2 grown kids and a husband. Now that the kids are living elsewhere, we have room to welcome happy travelers. I love to hike and bike in the area. We enjoy the farmers' markets and produce stands, and I can safely say that my hobby is cooking, baking, collecting and making up recipes. When not working, I'm probably traveling. The world is a big place, endlessly fascinating and worthy of the effort and expense it takes to experience it! When home, we enjoy the local jazz scene; my husband sings jazz.
