“Great place to stay” Had a great stay here. We love Aptos. Quiet central location but so much happening on the beach. I swam with dolphins! Rental is 100 percent furnished with 100percent of everything you need. All is clean and perfectly furnished and comfortable for your beach getaway. Teenagers can walk everywhere and stay busy including great ice cream. Aquarium passes are an $80 value and a thoughtful and generous touch. The owners are lovely people.

Opal Cliff Beach House

Santa Cruz house

3 bedrooms / 3 bathrooms / sleeps 8

“Santa Cruz at its Sweetest” the Opal Cliff Beach House is an amazing place to stay if you are in the Santa Cruz area. The house itself is large, yet homey...stunning views and sounds of the ocean...gorgeous decks front and back, peaceful gardens and all the amenities one would expect. The sun room, with its wall of glass, on the second floor is amazing rain or shine. I can't recommend this beautiful home highly enough.

Vaquita House on Opal Cliff Dr -- Private beach

Santa Cruz cottage

2 bedrooms / 1 bathroom / sleeps 4

“Beach Music” Vaquita House is unassuming on the outside, but you are soon hooked -- the place glows in the morning sun, the yard is protected so almost always a great place to be. Fully equipped kitchen, too. The owners are more like hosts -- happy to share all their local knowledge, and also willing to lend a guitar after my husband was inspired by all the live music he walked to hear every night. The walk down the hill to Capitola is short -- just long enough to appreciate the seascape or the stars. The walk to the gated beach is even shorter -- and the walks once there, fabulous. Ditto the surfing. We've done several flipkeys and this was by far the best!!!

About Aptos

Aptos is one of the quaint towns that lies between the rocky shores and beautiful endless vineyard country of California's Central Coast. Summer happens all year long here, with gently changing weather and cool breezes that drift in from the Pacific Ocean. As a result of its alluring climate and landscape, visitors have been coming here to tour the famous wineries and explore the pristine beaches of Aptos for generations.

In addition to its state parks, vineyards and natural wonders, the Monterey Peninsula is also home to some of California's most popular coastal attractions. While you're visiting Aptos, be sure to explore the Monterey Bay Aquarium, a world-class research facility and marine zoo housing thousands of ocean species including sharks and sea turtles. And don't miss a chance to spend an afternoon strolling, shopping and watching the famous sea lions of Fisherman's Wharf.

Here are a few additional suggestions as you plan your vacation to the Central Coast:

  • Visit the Aptos Farmer's Market: For the best and freshest local produce, lively conversation and a chance to learn about the origins of some of California's culinary treasures, visit the farmer's market that takes place here every Saturday.
  • See live music and dance performances: See world class live music, theater, ballet and modern dance performances at the California Theater, the Rio Theater in Santa Cruz or the San Jose Center for the Performing Arts.
  • Explore the coast: Go deep sea fishing, take a sea kayaking eco tour, go scuba diving or snorkeling for a close encounter with marine life, or simply relax on the beach.
  • Take a culinary and winery tour: A vineyard tour is the best way to experience the heart of California's Central Coast wine country. Combine your tour with samplings of some of the world-class restaurants in and around Aptos.
  • Visit the Forest of Nisene Marks State Park: Destroyed by the earthquake that shook this area in 1989, the forest is now rebounding, offering a glimpse into a rare natural process of ecological recovery.
  • Play a round of golf: Aptos, Santa Cruz and Rio Del Mar are home to some champion class emerald green golf courses like De Laveage and Casserly Par.

No matter what season of the year you schedule your visit to Aptos, you'll have no trouble finding a place to stay. There are plenty of vacation rental opportunities here, so take your time and find the perfect cottage or apartment within reach of your favorite activities. Rent an elegant summer condo or beach villa with views of the Pacific Ocean. Or find a summerhouse big enough to host your family and friends.

Pacific Oaks Vineyard Guest Room with private sun porch
Pacific Oaks Vineyard

Had a wonderful time here. The atmosphere was lovely, peaceful and quiet. The room was clean and beautifully decorated and had everything you could need. A microwave, coffee pot, small refrigerator and an iron with ironing board. But the gem was the indoor swimming pool with a sauna or spa to relax in after a long day of hiking the local state beaches and parks or site seeing in Santa Cruz or Monterey, which is just a short drive to any of these places. Judy was a great hostess. I would highly recommend staying here to anyone in need of some R&R.see more
Fanti-Sea Beach Villa
Spectacular Ocean View, everything you need is everywhere and anywhere, very friendly and accommodating hostes!

Studio away from downtown by a mile or two, so you are closer to state park and fabulous cliff view of ocean, breath take at anytime of day or night. Jeanelle was solicitous and even upgraded me to studio with an indoor kitchen and lovely jetted tub with separate shower. I visited during a very heavy rain shower and high wind period of 4 out of 7 days with the only kitchen and sink was outdoors. It was extremely gracious of Jeanelle to upgrade me to her other, more comfortable studio. So appreciated and enjoyed! Christine Marquissee more
2nd row! Remodeled! Steps to Seacliff beach!!!
Quiet, comfortable and well equipped - a rare find so close the Sea.

It's hard to believe there are still quiet places in California, right at sea. We totally enjoyed our 3 night stay. We could hear the surf crashing across the street and over the cliff. It's only a five minute walk to the beach, and not through tons of traffic, just a block through a local neighborhood. We could stroll over any time we felt like it, and sit on benches above the cliff to watch the whales just off shore. Case Mare provided everything we needed, even some coffee until we could find our own. And it's very close to stores so we could get anything we wanted. It was very clean and well set up for us. Four of us never felt crowded. The rooms are clean and beds are very comfortable. Both rooms have sliding doors to outside. The back patio is completely fenced in flowers and totally quiet - a wonderful sitting place. The front patio is just through a gate from the bedrooms - a great place to sit and enjoy the sun and the sounds of the sea without being bothered by noise and people. The owners are very responsive - immediately replaced the coffee pot that didn't seem to work correctly. They obviously cared that we enjoyed their place. Thank you for that!see more
