We moved into our beautiful home over two years ago and absolutely love being here. It's awesome to be able to take our daily beach walks or to sit and just appreciate the day. We look forward to sharing our place with you.

In a neighborhood of beach homes with a spacious stretch of wide, sandy beach for long walks just a few minutes away, the space is well-maintained, clean, and comfortable. Down a short flight of stairs at the front door is the bedroom to one side and on the other a room with a small fridge/freezer, bar sink, dining table, and bathroom, which has a bathtub and shower. Organic coffee and a choice of organic 'milks' are provided. Eli and Akindele are personable, open, flexible, thoughtful, helpful, intelligent, and interesting hosts. Thank you for a pleasant stay!
Eli, you were so thoughtful to call me and confirm directions and travel time. Your guest area is very warm and cozy. I immediately felt comfortable. So glad that it was also ok to reference things for your attention. I figured you would want to know because of your attention to detail.
Eli and Akindele are warm and inviting hosts. Our accomodations were very comfortable and the location is fabulous. We had a wonderful stay, albeit too brief. The conversation was great. We look forward to returning.
Eli and Akindele were awesome hosts! Unfortunately we did not get to hang out too much as we were busy studying. They were friendly and knowledgeable. The house is cute and accommodations clean and comfortable! Hope to spend some time with you two in the near future! Thank you for everything!!!
We had a WONDERFUL stay, so friendly and there's lots of privacy and space. Best part - 10 seconds walk from the beach!!! Will definitely be back :)
Eli was very nice and welcoming and the house was also great. It's very clean and spacious and about a five minute walk to the beach, which is beautiful. This a good place to stay if you're in the Santa Cruz area and you want something nice and quiet.
we had the whole floor downstairs for our own (kitchen, living room, bedroom and bathroom)- so it actually was private and not shared. everything was clean and we got fruit, coffee and tea! we would definitely stay there again! aptos is a small and peacful
place, we loved it!
So I got there a little later than expected the first night and the orientation/key exchange was a bit rushed, and I didn't find out until I got there that the hot tub/jacuzzi was out of order, but other than that it was a pleasant stay! Eli was an enganging, intelligent and knowledgable host, the comfortable downstairs room had a large adjacent semi-private living room and private bathroom. In walking distance is Seacliff Beach, Manuel's - a friendly Mexican restaurant, and ask the bartender about rolling dice at The Med Bar next door, A short drive away is really good BBQ and an outstanding crafft beer selection at the Aptos St. BBQ, and the Cafe Sparrow has outstanding French cusine you shouldn't miss.
Staying with Eli and Akindele was an highlight in our trip in California. They were very friendly and charming. Although the room is mentioned shared, it is almost private since it almost consists in the house basement with a large lounge offering a view on their beautiful garden. We appreciated their kind attentions during our stay : sightseeing leaflet, the table was dressed for dinner on our arrival,... Another plus, the beach in Aptos is beautiful and is only a few minutes walk from the house.
It was great having Eli stay with us. He is a wonderful guest. Very respectful of the house rules and very easy to talk with. We would welcome him back
Eli and Akindele -I would have liked them to stay longer just so I could have had more good conversation and laughs with such great people. Our apartment was left spotless. I am always thrilled to see people utilize the bikes and really get into the feel of the town. Hope you made it to the Opera house in Catania. Come back any time!
