À propos de ce logement
This cozy 1-bedroom in-law unit is just steps to Rio del Mar beach, walking distance to restaurants, and a quick drive to hiking, kayaking, whale watching, wine tasting and more! Full kitchen, wifi, cable TV, beach gear.
PRIVATE IN-LAW UNIT
This brand-new in-law unit is located on the first floor of our house. It is completely separate from the main house with its own private entrance and internal dividing door.
We live in a residential neighborhood, so this space is great for people wanting to come enjoy the area, but not a good fit for loud parties. Also, we have a dog but do not allow pets of any kind to stay in the in-law unit.
PERFECT BEACH GETAWAY FOR 2
There is a bedroom area with queen-sized bed, dresser, and large closet. A half wall separates the bedroom from the living area. The bathroom is located off the hallway, outside of the bedroom.
The kitchen is fully equipped with dishes, cutlery, pots and pans, etc., and includes basic spices and condiments plus a Keurig coffee machine and all the fixings for coffee, tea and hot chocolate.
There is a large screen TV, cable, Wii game system, wifi, plus books and board games.
Accès des voyageurs
Beach towels, chairs, boogie boards, etc. are available for you to use during your stay. These are stored in the hallway closet.
The bathroom includes a shower over a full-sized tub, shampoo, conditioner, body wash and towels.
All bedding is included for the queen bed.
Guests are welcome to use the outdoor patio space just outside the private entrance to the in-law unit, as well as the semi-circular seating area (orange sofas) in the garden.
NOTE: Use of the washer/dryer is NOT included with the rental. If you have a laundry emergency during your stay, just let us know and we'll help you out!! :-)
Échanges avec les voyageurs
We love this area and are excited you've come to visit! We'd be very happy to talk to you about our favorite walks and hikes, local activities, and restaurants any time before or during your stay.
The Rio del Mar / Aptos area allows you to be close to nature while still having all the conveniences of a charming town. It's also a great base for exploring the Central Coast - Monterey and Carmel are just a half-hour away!
From our place you can walk for miles along the beach, and you will often see dolphins, seals, all kinds of sea birds, and even whales right from the shore. You can also walk to restaurants, bars and cafes in Rio del Mar and Seacliff Village, or drive about a mile to find shopping, restaurants, and grocery stores in Aptos Village. Capitola-by-the-Sea, Downtown Santa Cruz, and the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk all just about 10-15 minutes away by car.
Just a little over a mile away there is awe-inspiring hiking among the redwoods at Nisene Marks park. Kayak rentals and whale watching trips are available nearby out of the Santa Cruz Harbor and also at Moss Landing. Drive about 15 minutes from here for wonderful wine tasting in Soquel or Corralitos.
The 55 bus stops right by our place and runs to the Transit Center at the Capitola Mall. Uber is also available.
We live in the main part of the house upstairs, so we are nearby if you need anything, and otherwise you can enjoy the privacy of the in-law unit. This also means that you may occasionally hear low-level noise from us (footsteps, etc.).
Our location is a quick walk downhill to the beach. This means you must walk back up the hill to return :-) Conveniently, there is a free public parking lot at the bottom of the hill right in front of the beach if you want to skip the hill altogether.
No pets of any kind or size (we have a dog, but he does not enter the Airbnb unit).
Quiet hours: 10pm - 8am
No smoking of anything indoors or on the property.
No fires on the property. No lit candles or flames of any kind.
It's the beach - sand happens. Please do what you can to keep sand outside, and please hang wet towels, swimsuits, etc. outside.
Si vous annulez jusqu'à 24 heures avant le voyage, vous recevez un remboursement intégral, frais de service compris.
A Bay Area native, my heart has always belonged to the beach! I studied at UC Santa Cruz and recently relocated to Aptos from San Francisco. I love exploring the area on foot with my husband Andy and our dog, Archie - ask me about our favorite walking routes! I'm a fan of the arts and you can often find me watching live music or a dance performance, locally or in San Francisco.
I look forward to meeting you!
