      I rented this cute little cottage for my husband, myself, and our three kids (ages 2, 4, and 8). It was perfect! The cottage was so clean and beautiful, and the owners thought of everything to make us feel welcome and comfortable. They even had fresh flowers in the kitchen and snacks waiting for the kids! My husband and I enjoyed the cozy and comfortable bed in the master bedroom, and our kids slept on the pull-out couch (it has a blow-up mattress). During our stay, we enjoyed a night at the Boardwalk, and it was only a 10-15 minute drive away. The second day, we went to Sea Cliff State Beach for the day. Although the sun didn't come out for us, we still had a great time, and it was so nice to come back to our cozy cottage and warm up after playing at the beach all day. We had a lovely little barbecue that nigh, and the kitchen had everything we needed to cook our meal! We loved staying here, and hope to be back again next summer!
      The cottage is everything shown in the photos. We stayed at this great cottage while we went the Blues Festival. It provided us with all the comforts we needed to relax after the festival. Stores, shops and the beach is well within walking distance. The well maintained back yard equipped with a gas grille was a perfect plus to entertain friend whom came to join us for dinner. I won't hesitate to recommend this cozy cottage to anyone who wanted to enjoy the area. Thank you to the owner and Homeaway.com.
      We absolutely loved our stay at this cute little beach house. Ralph was a gracious host and greeted us upon arrival. We would love to come back and stay again. The only thing that wasn't perfect was the weather... but that's just how it is in June by the beach... a little foggy.
      This is an immaculate cottage that fit our needs perfectly. We were in California visiting family and needed a quiet place within walking distance of the beach. The location is convenient to grocery shopping and restaurants. The owner was very responsive to our questions. I recommend the Cottage at Seacliff to anyone looking for a place in Aptos.

      We stayed here in Aptos while visiting family and had the most comfortable stay. This place is a gem and the location is perfect. We will be sure to rent again and again!! If you're looking for a home away from home by the beach...this is it!

      What a great locatrion. My family and I wanted a place near the coast so we could explore the Santa Cruz surfing spots. We really enjoyed the Cottage and found it had all we needed. It was well organized and well accomodated. Thank you.

      This is a extremely wonderful beautiful place to stay. I can't say enough about this cottage. The picture's are so right on at how nice it is. We had a great time felt right at home. Perfect size for 2-4 guests. Darling kitchen enough storage everywhere really cozy. Close to highway and all attractions. Ralph was super nice and helpful. Just a great place we never wanted to leave. Every extra touch is thought of and there including surround sound stero. Nice yard was extremely nice to barbeque and hang out in. Very quiet and nice neighborhood. The beach was two blocks, two small markets right at corner. Everything very comfortable and clean. Can't wait to visit again!

      First, this is a very cute cottage. Be very dubious of the report that it sleeps 4 people because there is only one bedroom with a queen sized bed meaning the second pair is on the fold out couch you'll pass on your way to the bathroom. I never received the rental agreement so was unsure of our checkin time. We decided to drive down and figured if the house wasn't ready, we could kill time. When we arrived it turned out the owner was there staying in the house he owns next door. He repeatedly commented on how we really had arrived too early (by 2 hours) and made far too big a deal about this. I then learned that we "shared" the driveway with his other house. What this really meant was he decided to park his car in the driveway for our entire stay. The owner kept popping over to talk to us. I'm not sure if it was meant to be friendly (he once again reminded me that we had arrived early) but it left us feeling very uncomfortable. There is no privacy when the owner keeps sticking his head in. The living room has a large plant that emits an awful odor. It permeates a large portion of the room making it quite unpleasant. My final complaint is admittedly small. There was only one trash can for the two houses and it was tiny. The trash my four person family created in 3 nights far overwhelmed the trash can. At the price I paid for this house, I shouldn't have to deal with a "shared" driveway, a nosy owner and a shared trashcan overflowing with trash. The cuteness of the house doesn't come close to making up for the deficiencies. I would never stay again.

      Santa Cruz Mountains Dragonfly Cottage Rental
      Dragonfly Cottage is magic. A wonderful stone cottage in Corralitos in the beautiful Santa Cruz Mountains. For travelers this is the best of both worlds. A cozy cottage nestled in the redwood forest, a short distance to HWY 1. HWY 1 is the Pacific Coast HWY, the main vein to Monterey, Carmel-by-the-Sea, Big Sur, Capitola and Santa Cruz and the HWY 101 Corridor.

      Or if you are looking for some peace and quiet. A restorative break from your life. This is an excellent choice.

      People come from all over the world to experience the Pacific Coast specifically the Monterey Bay area. It is an area rich in history. Here you will find world class art, music, cuisine, golf, surfing, sightseeing, hiking, biking, sunbathing, whale watching, birding, fishing, Monterey Bay Aquarium, Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk and so much more. You can spend the day engaged in a variety of activities, physical and/or cultural. However you spend your day you can return home to a mountain cottage and quiet.

      Looking south from inside the cottage is the largest window which affords the incredible view of the Pajaro Valley. The queen size bed is placed so you can enjoy gazing out upon the fertile valley while lying in bed. Some mornings the fog lays down so perfectly one can feel wonderfully alone looking out at the sea of soft white. Sunsets are often remarkably beautiful. Sit on the front deck in an Adirondack chair with a cup of tea or glass of wine and enjoy creation. In the morning and evenings you can sit and watch and listen to the Mourning Doves, Band Tailed Pigeons, Oregon Juncos, Stellars and Scrub Jays, Hummingbirds, Hawks and Ravens.

      Spend part of your evening in the hot tub in the secluded Redwoods.

      Just inside the big window there is a delicious couch and a loveseat that provide comfortable viewing from inside the cottage. The couch is large enough for a fine nap. It is also a great place to snug down with a book or magazine or some knitting. The gas heater stove is particularly cozy on a cool day. There is a piano in the cottage as well. Feel free to play.

      The cottage is fully equipped with a kitchen including a reproduction antique stove and small refrigerator. It has a newly installed bamboo floor. One can enjoy their breakfast with a breath taking view. Coffee and tea in the kitchen are for your enjoyment.

      The bathroom has a tub/shower combination. Bedding and fresh linens are provided.

      The cottage is heated with a natural gas stove. There is an oil heater for extra chilly nights.

      There is plenty of open space inside to accommodate several people practicing yoga at the same time. And it is quiet enough for meditation.

      We find many of our guests are looking for peace and quiet in their busy lives. It can be found here. Occasionly the guests spend many days resting, reading, etc. inside the cottage or on the beautiful deck that looks out to Pajaro Valley.

      The weather here is excellent. It is located in a micro climate called a banana belt. Though the beach is only 25 minutes away we are often in the sun when our neighbors in the valley and on the coast are in the fog. Winters are mild we average 25" of rainfall a year. Summers can be warm but delightful. The fog rolling in at night is nature's air conditioner and everything cools down. The weather is nearly perfect. Fog burns off early enough to make the beaches comfortable all day.

      The Santa Cruz Mountains are home to Sequoia Sempervirens commonly known as a Redwood Tree. They are native only to a specific part of Pacific Coast region.

      Come and visit our amazing part of the world and experience something special about the California Coast.

      - There are books, magazines, games and puzzles for your entertainment.
      -Television, DVD player and DVDs in the cottage.
