We loved the Ocean Rose! The house was open, roomy and well equipped for our family vacation. Looking at the ocean from the kitchen window made chores so much more enjoyable, as well as sitting on the upper deck enjoying the beautiful evenings. Great location - short walk to beach, downtown Aptos restaurants, and a quick car ride to charming Capitola and Santa Cruz. Lynn was quick to respond to questions and easy to work with. Thanks so much!
The house was big, beautiful, spacious, and extremely clean. I threw a bachelorette party here and the bride is a hard one to please. She walked through house and was "oohing and ahhing!" We could hear the waves crashing when the windows were open. We had planned on eating out but the kitchen was just so accessible that we did a lot of cooking there. There were enough beds for everyone. I will surely be back with my family.
Lynn is a wonderful host! This was our first Airbnb experience and right from the sign-up process she was very helpful and always available to answer any of our questions. Our group of six adults especially enjoyed relaxing in the bright, spacious, open-concept living area after our days spent exploring the California coast. The beautiful kitchen has everything you need to grab a quick breakfast in the morning or to prepare a wonderful barbecue dinner with all the fixings! Since the weather was unexpectedly cool, we didn't use the outside deck areas as much as we would have liked but the dining table was perfect to enjoy the beautiful views from the many windows, have a great meal or play one of the numerous board games. The key code entry allowed each of our group to be independent - go for a walk on the beach or explore the neighbourhood (on foot or biking) without having to think about who had the key when we returned. The book provided great information about the area - interesting places to visit, restaurants (including menus) and other area amenities. The Ocean Rose was a perfect "home-away-from-home" getaway and we hope to return for a longer visit in the future!
Lynn is so easy and nice to communicate with about her beautiful house. We were 4 adults and 4 kids and everybody enjoyed the stay. The kids loved to sleep altogether. As adults and French, we appreciated the wonderful equiped kitchen to prepare our dinners, not to mention the BBQ. Being able to hear the surf is such a pleasure all the more so the neighborhood is so quiet. The beach is so close, the kids could go on their own. Hope we will be able to come back to enjoy this area.
Our stay at the house was fantastic. The house was extremely clean, in a great location and had everything we needed. We especially appreciated the baby gate! I would highly recommend staying here.
Our stay in your beautiful home in Aptos was one of the most relaxing and enjoyable times we have spent with our family. The open floor plan with all of the amenities (that are too numerous to mention) along with the decks overlooking the ocean and the beautiful neighborhood, made our stay perfect. We are looking forward to our next stay at the Ocean Rose
