Jeanell is an absolutely wonderful host. Check-in was seamless, and she was absolutely attentive and communicative all the way through. Her home is UNIQUE. You will not ever find a more beautiful, thoughtful, and well designed flat. It's an eclectic mix of furniture, but the pieces fit together so wonderfully. The view is unbeatable, and it is such a relaxing treat to fall asleep to the sound of the waves, see the sky, moon, stars, and ocean through glass walls & ceiling, that you will be more than pleasantly ecstatic. Thank you!

This is a lovely place to stay with an amazing ocean view! Everything was beautiful and serene, Jeanell was very welcoming, and we had a very relaxing visit! I loved the piles of soft comfy blankets and being surrounded by the sea:)

My boyfriend and I spent the night in Aptos before heading down the Big Sur and had an incredible time in Jeanell's flat. The views from the studio were breathtaking and the trip, as a whole, provided a peaceful escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. My boyfriend and I slept better than we had in months listening to the ocean waves under a clear/starry night sky. Communication with Jeanell was seamless from check-in through check-out and I would love to return sometime down the line!

Wow - this place is amazing in every way! My wife and I stayed at Jeanell's place for 2 nights capping off our anniversary trip to Northern California. Communication between the host was seamless, check-in was a breeze, and our stay was beyond words. We loved every second of it and didn't want to leave. We ended up sleeping on the lounger outside under the stars both nights and the view during the day was priceless. I originally had a concern about my wife not liking the idea of using a "chemical toilet" and outdoor shower but after arriving my concerns were immediately alleviated as were my wife's. She kept saying "this is so cool." If you are one bit hesitant about booking because of that please do not worry. It's amazing in every way (Yes, I repeated myself). We cannot wait to come back to the area and hopefully rebook with Jeanell again. Best stay ever!

Jeanelle home is over the top with the most incredible ocean views. Sleeping out under the stars is absolutely a once in a lifetime experience. Jeanelle answered all of our questions and had perfect dinner recommendations for our anniversary. We highly recommend adding her home for your next experience to the coast!!!!!
