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.
Jeanell was easy to communicate with and very accommodating when I arrived for my few days of retreat. The place was lovely and comfortable. She greeted me and gave me a tour right away and then I didn't see her after that. When I did need her, she was a text away. Nice place to get away from it all.
I booked this rental for the sole purpose of the view and being dog friendly... You can't beat this view!!!! The sunrise and sunset each day was simply breath taking. Not to mention the constant relaxing sounds of the waves crashing. The host has thought of EVERYTHING that one can need. She even accommodated my late check in and check out which was greatly appreciated. The lower level studio was cute and cozy. During my stay the outside weather was a bit chilly at times,so I put the blankets and portable heater to great use. In additional, she even surprised me with an Easter card and bucket filled with colorful eggs for the holiday which was very sweet. I will definitely choose to stay here again as well as refer others when staying in the Santa Cruz area!!!!!
FYI-She has the most flyest chicken that I have ever seen!!!!
What an amazing place! The view is second to none and can be enjoyed from multiple sitting areas. Everything came as advertised. The room is so cozy and relaxing as you can hear the waves crashing against the shore. Jeanell went above and beyond with the accommodations and we'll definitely be back again!
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!
