Come stay in this breathtaking three bedroom, two and a half bath, 2670 square feet Aptos vacation villa. Beautiful Brazilian hardwood floors and kitchen cabinets. Near golf course, beach and Seascape Resort. Three level Aptos home with 3 bedrooms …
We spent 4 days here and the house is very spacious, has good bedding, and is well stocked, but bring coffee filters, basket type. The house is set up for having small children, i.e. cabinet locks in kitchen and baths. For all adult visitors, they are a hassle. What I didn't like the most is that Seascape Blvd. is a heavily traveled road from early morning til late at night, especially on weekends. On the map, it looks all residential and I thought that meant relatively quiet but I was wrong. With the windows open and on the decks, you hear a lot of traffic. I may be more sensitized to traffic noise since I live in the country on 4 acres and the only cars that come near are my immediate neighbors.
The house was perfect ! I took 9 girls for their last get together before they all go away to college. We all had so much space. The kitchen had everything provided to cook with. The house was clean and a great location. I think the house is nicer than the photos show. The owner was nice and easy to talk to. We went to the beach which was half a mile away. We went hiking at the Forest of Nisene Marks which was about 3 miles away. Shopping and grocery store also very close. We will definitely stay at this house again !
I stayed at this house in Aptos with my wife and two other couples. It was a very nice experience for all of our first visits to the beach area near San Francisco. Susana met us in San Jose with the key and graciously waited longer because our flight was delayed. She gave us directions to a great place for lunch. The house itself was as expected from the pictures. It was warm at 75 degrees when we arrived and we tried to turn on the A/C by turning the thermostat to "cool". When no cool air came out I contacted Susana who was prompt in her response pointing out to this easterner that in the area there is really no need for A/C. This proved very true and once we opened windows the house was very comfortable. We were just not used to the low humidity warm weather with such a cooling breeze. What a delight. The house is just a short .7 mile walk on sidewalks through an attractive neighborhood. to the Seascape beach area. We were in town for a large family birthday centered at the Seascape Resort where many of our party stayed. The resort is quite nice itself, but staying in the Aptos house gave us a much roomier space with lots of privacy with three very nice separate bedrooms and yet spacious kitchen, eating and living room areas for gathering together when we wanted. All this for less than we would have spent for accommodations at the resort for three couples
The home is provided with a lot of entertainment and relaxing areas and facilities. We did not have time to use them all, but the sun room. hot tub and roof top open terrace were all very inviting.
The home is away from the main highway enough to feel like a neighborhood, but close enough for easy short car trips for whatever grocery and drugstore shopping one would need. On CA1 it is an easy trip to lovely Carmel with fresh fruit and vegetable stands along the way. The congestion on that highway during commuter time is a pain when getting to the house from the San Jose, San Francisco area, but I assume that this is a general CA problem and once there who would want to leave
We did travel to and from San Francisco by car on Sunday without traffic problems. With a GPS on the car or ipad like device navigating in and out was no big problem.
The home was great with its spaciousness and privacy for we three couples. It has a pull out couch in a separate living room/TV room area and an inflatable queen mattress which would easily accommodate 4 others for sleeping Francisco area,
We had such a GREAT time! Thank you so so much. The house was beautiful and could not have been more perfect for our weekend. I cannot thank you enough.
Thank you for sharing your home with us. It was lovely. My children were so happy when they arrived.
There are a few items of concern that I needed to communicate with you.
- I accidentally broke one small glass with the Gilroy Garlic festival on it.
- The toaster got stuck a few times.
None of these diminished the joy of being in your home.
Thank you and God Bless,
My husband and I wanted a weekend away for our wedding anniversary and we brought our 2 year old twins with us.We also had a couple meeting us for one of the nights. The house was gorgeous with amazing wood floors!! I was able to gate off the stairs so our kids didn't try to go up and down which was nice. They also had 2 pack and plays and high chairs which significantly minimized what I needed to bring.
I would LOVE to come back without our kids since it looks like it would be a great place for a few couples to get together for a weekend away from the kids.
We grilled on the patio, beautiful weather. Also, there was a rooftop deck which I seemed to miss when booking so it was a pleasant surprise. The welcome binder had a detailed list of everything I would need to know about the area, including takeout menus. We ordered from Hong Kong Garden the first night and it was delicious!! The second evening we walked down to the resort for a few drinks and it was very nice!!
The hot tub was so relaxing! We also noticed a pool table in the garage along with boogie boards and beach toys. We didn't get the opportunity to use them but we will next time as we absolutely will book here again!!
