Interaction with Guests
Aptos is an idyllic beach community with a small-town feel and diverse population. Nestled amongst miles of pristine beaches, rolling hills, towering redwood trees, and strawberry fields, the community sets the scene for an extraordinary lifestyle. Keep a lookout for dolphins, outers, & whales!!
This is a great neighborhood for walking and bike riding, we have several for your use. Lots of trails for hiking nearby. Beach access is on "Beachgate Way", about 6 blocks down the street. You can park by the access stairs, or walk. We have boogie boards for the ocean. This home has been on he Annual Symphony League Home Tour two times, and has been in the local newspaper, as the "Fanti-Sea House".
Situated on Monterey Bay's northern coast, Santa Cruz/Aptos homes are found within a progressive resort community. The area is alive with families, artists, local business owners, surfers, students, and visitors who return year after year.
Other Things to Note
Please e-mail us a bit about yourself when you first inquire about the accommodations......either before or at the time you book. Although the studio is very private, we like to know who will be sharing our space, so we ask quests to share a little bit about themselves before they make a reservation.
This is a quiet neighborhood, not compatible for party goers! A small dog may be accepted for an additional fee of $15. per night. $20. an hour for late checkouts unless approved ahead of time. $20. additional for a 3rd person if approved.
The description given is completely accurate. A perfect romantic place to be :) with an awesome ocean view. Sunset was very beautiful exactly as shown in pictures ! Also, the benches are placed at a very good location which gives a beautiful view of ocean. Moreover, I love the way it is decorated. The host has kept lot of stuff which you would need and don't have to worry about carrying it. I highly recommend this place !!
Jeanell was lovely! Professional, warm and courteous. She met us at the curved gate in front of the artistic and charming house with the keys and a smile. The space turned out to be even cooler than I expected with everything we needed. Not kidding that it is the most breathtaking view!!! The chicken kept us quiet company as we had snacks and sipped wine watching the sunset. We had day trips planned to Santa Cruz and a hike through the Redwoods, but honestly we could have just stayed at our romantic opulent little studio the whole time and enjoyed it immensely. Books to read, beautiful location, great little Mexican restaurant in town and the mattress was one of the most comfortable we've ever slept on. Just perfect. Thank you so much Jeanell!
Wonderful. Absolutely wonderful. This was my second time staying there and I didn't think it was possible but it was even better than the first! It's so cool to see the continued improvements Jeanell makes, from little touches in the studio to a new terrace overlooking the ocean. Maylee and I can't wait to return again soon!
We had a very pleasant experience staying in the studio. Jeanell was a great host, very accommodating and helped us make feel very comfortable. The view and the feel of the studio were fantastic. Will most certainly come back. Thanks, Jeanell!
We picked this place based solely on the first photo with the purple sunset, the rest of the photos helped secure my decision and the photos don't lie. What the photos can't tell you is the feeling you get when you are here. It's so peaceful and cozy. They have done such an amazing job with this studio you really feel like your in a luxury suite. The outdoor kitchen is fully stocked with anything you could need, there is also fun games such as horse shoes, darts and chess, a stereo, and some nice outdoor lighting that would make for a great evening. It was too cold for us to enjoy the evening outside but we plan on going back in the summertime to enjoy it. Even if we have to drive ten hours to get there. It was well worth it. The host Janelle was very friendly and inviting. We also got to meet her Chicken Sarah, Cat Tina, and Dog Marley who were also very friendly. My favorite part was enjoying a glass of wine with some snacks while watching the sunset in my jammies. It is definitely a FantaSea House and I would Highly recommend this place. There are so many unique little touches everywhere and very unique decorations. The best part about AirBnB is finding places like this, you could never find a hotel with this much charm and personality.
We spent NYE at the studio and I can not imagine a more beautiful way to welcome in a new year! Jeanell's house is truly special. The privacy and stunning views, paired with Jeanell's warm welcome and completely accommodating set up, made this the best air bnb experience! We are grateful to have found this place, and hope to stay here again!
I have to say this is the best place I've ever stayed!!! The view and the decoration, you just can't beat it. I only had one day stay at Jeanell's place and I have to say I would love to stay several days more because this place is so amazing that I cannot describe by just typing words. Her yard is like heaven that the decoration is wonderful. I had chance to see the sunrise at her amazing yard in the morning. The view is just breathtaking!! Jeanell is very friendly and willing to help guests out. I would say, after being stressed out staying in NYC, I feel completely relaxed and cured at this place. I love her three little pets, too. Marvey, her little doggy might be the cutest dog I've ever seen:)
