Recent Aptos vacation rental reviews

Very cool house and everything you need is available and easy to find, only thing is maybe the owner should use some glade plug ins or air fresheners
Carolyn T. | Feb 2023
Had everything we needed for a great few days even with the rain. Would definitely stay again. Comfy beds & kitchen had everything we needed.
Tracy A. | Jan 2023
Everything about the house was amazing. A great space for a big family unfortunately the strict limit even for a single dinner is 8. I emailed booking twice, but vacasa was the true company and I didn’t hear back so called . 8 is hard limit so we had to rent a separate house just for 1 family dinner . Good thing we did, as power outage would have sent us scrambling in stormy weather to closest pizza parlor. LOVED the house but not a good choice if family is large like ours. For the price would make other arrangements for family gather too much for a limited small group. 8 for sleeping is reasonable as only 8 beds . However since I’m a known Booking.com renter accommodations for one night for a gathering is not an unreasonable request ( space could have accommodated my family and a soccer team!)

Things to do in Aptos, CA

On Saturdays make your way to the Aptos Farmers Market at Cabrillo College to pick up farm fresh produce, artisan cheeses, locally produced olive oils, and more for memorable dinners back at your Aptos beach cottage. Not in the mood for cooking? Aptos is home to more than 50 restaurants including the delectable French dishes at local favorite Au Midi and plates of down-home comfort (along with plenty of craft beers) at Aptos Street BBQ. An 18-minute drive into the surrounding mountains to Soquel Vineyards will reward you with both wine tasting and lunch, as handmade gourmet pizza samples are typically handed out along with the tastes of zinfandel and chardonnay.

Outdoor fans should head to Manresa State Beach for swimming, beach combing, surfing, fishing, or maybe just a picnic by the shore. Easy day trips from Aptos include strolling the popular Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk for amusement park rides and entertainment, or a day at the famous Monterey Bay Aquarium to view the wonders of the ocean, a mere 45-minute drive to the south. A unique way to sightsee the area is from Santa Cruz Bike Tours, where excursions include brewery and winery visits, as well as mountain bike adventures through the redwoods.

If your vacation falls during the 4th of July, attend the "World's Shortest Parade", which follows a two-block route in downtown Aptos and features antique fire trucks, food, music, and more local attractions at the end.

One thing is for sure, whatever time of year you stay in our Aptos vacation rentals, you'll be in for a sunny California vacation.
