Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Our family had a great time at the Ocean Rose. It's an immaculate home with all kinds of great perks. Full of light and really beautiful. The best was the open kitchen and living room so that we all could hang together as meal prep was done. We grilled some salmon on the deck while listening to the waves. Awesome!

  • Beautiful, luxurious spacious home. I was worried if there would be enough ocean view and there was from the deck, and kitchen with a partial view from the master bedroom. My 68 year old parents easily made it up and down the steep beach stairs. We had to use the State Beach Entrance steep road to walk back and forth from the beach with our double stroller which is about a 10 to 15 minute walk. Easy walk to restaurants, bar, nail salon and convenient stores. Eat at Ambrosias Indian food just across the tracks.

  • This is a beautiful, clean, well equipped and furnished, and perfectly located home for a family beach holiday. The floor plan gives space and privacy to the bedrooms. The owners are responsive and helpful. The neighborhood is quiet. Multiple patios offer outdoor seating. A beach gate is just around the corner. The ocean views are spectacular by day and the sound of the waves complete the experience by night. We look forward to returning.

  • The Ocean Rose is "The Bomb", as they say! On a scale of 1 to 10, it's a 15! My family was so pleased and happy. Truly, all you need to bring is your clothes and food to cook. Everything else is provided and it's clean and fresh. An awesome time was had by all, and to please my family, well that's saying something! :-) Thanks Lynn, we'll be baaaaack! Karla

  • We had a fantastic week at the Ocean Rose! This house was absolutely perfect for our family vacation. We enjoyed waking up and watching humpback whales from the back deck, cooking in the open layout kitchen (which was stocked with all the essentials & more), and being just a short walk to the beach (where our kids ages 4 & 5 could play for hours. They even have boogie boards , wet suits, beach towels and sand toys to borrow. The house has a great location, close to the grocery store and easy to get to all the nearby sites (i.e Santa Cruz, the Monterey Bay Aquarium and Gilroy Gardens). We've stayed in other home rentals before and none have been as warm and comfortable as this (feels like a real home not a rental).

    Thanks again Lynn for a great stay!

    Thanks Tina for the nice review! We are so pleased you enjoyed the house. We love to hear that others enjoy the house as much as we do and we are happy to have it be part of your family vacation memories!
    My best,

  • We were beyond pleased with everything. The house was fantastic and well kept. It had everything we needed and we felt very comfortable in the house. I appreciated the communication I had with Lynn. I can't wait to go back.

  • Fantastic. Just fantastic. We had a great time. The house is very comfortable, spacious, great kitchen, well appointed. We loved having all the beach gear, toys, chairs, umbrella...Lynn and her family are obviously very thoughtful hosts, who care about us and making our stay comfortable.
    I was only slightly bummed that accessing the beach requires a trek down a long staircase, not easy with gear and a toddler (I hadn't realized the house was on top of a cliff). BUT that said, we explored beaches around, and enjoyed the ocean view from the house.
    The Aptos community is really lovely, quiet, easy going. So easy to get around, we explored Capitola and Santa Cruz, Monterey. Amenities all close by...we had a fantastic time. Perfect mix of rest, vegging, BBQ, and fun.

    Thanks Evelyne for the nice review. I will post some picture of the Beachgate stairs on the listing so people know in advance that is is a trek down the stairs, especially with a toddler in tow! I appreciate the feedback and I'm glad you had a great time!

  • The house is amazing and family-friendly. Lynn was a wonderful host - super quick replies, very attentive, and thorough. We had a wonderful time in this beautiful home - close to the grocery store, close to the water, lots of open space for hanging out, well-stocked and organized kitchen, and a nice yard. Thanks, Lynn, for a wonderful stay.

  • This is an amazing house in an amazing area. The house is so well stocked and beautiful to boot. We cooked in the kitchen, looking at the ocean. There was plenty of room for the 6 of us to gather. We walked down to the beach a couple of times a's so close! Our only problem was that being there 4 days was not long enough...there is too much to do!

    Response from Lynn:

    Thanks for the nice review Bob. I also appreciate the note about reading lamps for the queen bedroom. I will definitely purchase some soon.Thanks for the feedback and glad you enjoyed the house!
