Hillside House - Spectacular View

House - Entire home/apt · Cresta Vista Way, Aptos, CA 95003, United States

The Space

Beautifully appointed 3-level home with stunning views of the Santa Cruz Mountains is a perfect place to relax, as you sit on the balcony or wrap-around deck and watch the sunset glowing across the hills. Only a mile from Aptos/Rio del Mar Beaches, it's a great base for exploring the Santa Cruz and Monterey/Carmel areas.

Craftsman woodwork is ample throughout the house, featuring an expansive wet bar in the Living Room; fully fitted kitchen features industrial gas stove, granite counter tops, and dishwasher; reading loft and office above complete the welcoming open layout of this unique house.

Spacious lower level bedroom and master bathroom has a hot tub and walk-in shower with dual shower heads. Washer and dryer are conveniently off the bedroom.

House sleeps four (two in the bedroom, two on the sofa-sleeper), with two bathrooms.

Escape from the bustle to my quiet, comfortable, and spacious retreat. Great restaurants and shopping are close by in Aptos, Capitola, and Santa Cruz. SFO, SJC, and MRY airports are within a 75-mile radius.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Ethan's place was exactly what I needed, so I stayed there again! Highly recommended if you are looking for a secluded spot to relax after a day exploring Santa Cruz county.

  • Ethan's house is wonderful, so much so that I extended my stay! Being on top of the hill is tranquil and relaxing. The balconies are great spaces to relax with the view. The bed is excellent and shower is amazing. Wifi is easy and strong. Ethan even includes a color-coded explanation for operating the combination tv/dvd/sound system remote control. The kitchen appliances seem almost brand new, everything works perfectly and is spotlessly clean. The entire place is luxurious and I thoroughly enjoyed staying here! The house is about 2 minutes by car from Highway 1 and about 12 minutes from downtown Santa Cruz.

  • Great, clean, comfortable house! We enjoyed our stay and will try to stay here again. The stairs may make it difficult for some people but this year our grandparents were not with us so it worked well. Nice view and great people to work with! Thanks so much!

  • Ethan's house is awesome... a great view, in a great place, perfectly kept. Ethan and Grace are awesome to work with as well. I could live here!

  • Just spent a wonderful week in Ethan's lovely house w/my husband and daughter. Very comfy, very clean, very roomy and very tastefully decorated, this house was way beyond our expectations. It is in a nice, quiet neighborhood up on a hill. It is not really a location from where you can walk to anything. But everything is easily accessible by car. Santa Cruz is just 15 min away, Rio del Mar beach where my daughter took surf lessons is less than 10 min away and Deer Park Shopping Ctr with its awesome supermarket is only 5 min away. We didn't need to get in touch with Ethan or Grace for anything other than picking up the key and dropping it off but they did check in on us frequently via email.

  • Stayed here multiple times. Fantastic host and fantastic place. Highly recommended.

    August 2013
  • We had an amazing time at Ethan's house. It's located atop a beautiful hillside just outside Santa Cruz. Only 15 minutes from downtown and within walking distance of both surfing and golf, it's ideal for a fun weekend out of town.

  • Ethan's house was spectacular. Everything was fresh, clean and artistically designed. View out of the balcony was particularly relaxing and you can see the ocean while taking strolls in the neighborhood. Ethan was a pleasure to communicate as well. Thank you for having us.

  • Absolutely fabulous !

    Spectacular views, calm & tranquility, tastefully decorated, with a remarquable wood work through out the house.

    I had a great time and left with my batteries fully recharged!

    April 2013
  • My husband and I had a wonderful stay at Ethan's home. The views really are fantastic and the house is lovely and in a very sweet neighborhood. The bath tub with jets and two person shower were highlights of the trip for us. Ethan and Grace(his manager) were very easy to communicate with and extremely prompt in responding. We would definitely recommend this rental to others and look forward to a return visit.
