50th Birthday Celebration

August 24, 2016

We enjoyed our stay very much. The home was just lovely...so clean and very comfortably appointed and decorated. The back living room was an unexpected surprise and perfect for our get together for my husband's 50th birthday celebration. There seems to be a place for everything and everything in its place. We enjoyed the second floor deck very much and watch as wales spouted, sea otters played and sharks showed themselves in the warm shore waters. This was our first time renting a home at the beach and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful beach house. Will definitely rent this home again!

The house was very comfortable and had all the amenities. The location is perfect. We saw dolphins, seals; and peligans hunting everyday. We would stay there again without a second thought.

As a native California I will share a secret that the locals understand - the weather is incredible in October and November. What a great place to stay and enjoy it. The sound of the ocean, the views and the great location plus the well stocked and decorated home equals an A+++ place for anyone. The master bath is dreamy. I loved the etched glass. I highly recommend this rental.

We have had the pleasure of staying at this beach front home during all four seasons, each giving us a new and exciting experience. The home is well maintained, beautiful and is walking distance to everything you may want to do or need, including a wonderful restaurant called Cafe Rio. Our favorite spot is the 2nd deck where we love to open a bottle of wine and view the whales and dolphins. Bring your binoculars! We have been with lots of family and by ourselves and have always been comfortable.

My family along with my sister-in-law's family stayed at the 393 Beach Dr. home and had a wonderful time. We stayed here during the summer, and loved it, so we returned the following winter and it was just as nice. The house has a great bbq area in the back, a family room for kids to hang out, a large beautiful kitchen, a jacuzzi tub in the master bedroom, and a living room (with a great view of the beach) for the adults to relax. There were several of us there on this past trip and we utilized the entire house. We had teenagers watching movies and playing cards in the family room; kids playing upstairs; and the adults socializing in the living room and bbq area. The beach is right out front and you can watch the kids play in the sand from the upstairs balcony. During our stay in the summer the beach in front of the home was never crowded. The public restrooms and parking lots are located at both ends of the beach where as the 393 house in the middle. So most of the people visiting the beach stay near the public restrooms and parking lots. This is our #1 place to vacation to and we will continue to make a trip there every summer and winter.

I have had the wonderful opportunity to have stayed at this beach house two different occassions - once in the summer and this past time in right before New Years - both times have been amazing. Each time was with family and friends and it was perfect! The house is set up to be cozy and inviting and there is always something to do. The beach is right out the front door - there is a wonderful second floor balcony that overlooks the beach - a great room with movies and games. You want for nothing! This past stay, I had kids asking me if we could stay longer! You will not be disappoined staying at 393 Beach Drive!!!!!! Dawn Hale-Miller

Fantastic place to spend Christmas

December 27, 2009

Ages from 5 to 81 and all agree that this beach home is wonderful. Lots of amenities and space to separate yourself from group if you want to read or be alone. The family room was a great place for the younger people to hang out when not on the beach collecting treasures and digging in the sand. The protected balcony is a great place to use telescope, drink coffee, watch the sun go down or just sit and relax. Master bath was a big hit with grand daughters as the tub has a Jacuzzi and that made their day. Plenty of bathroom facilities for large family. The home is decorated with a loving touch, all rooms have great pictures and treasures. Thanks for sharing with us. Merry Christmas Donna Jones San Jose

This beach house is perfect for a wonderful vacation by week or weekend. It's very clean, well stocked with all supples a family needs. Great location across the beach. We have stayed at five other beach houses on Beach Drive(some at more of a cost) and this one is superior to all others. The layout is wonderful. You even have a card table for those who want to play cards or games. The deck is wonderful as you overlook the beach. The master bathroom is gorgeous. We are going back to this one; we won't try any others. We found the perfect beach house! Thank you for sharing it with us, Linda Mohr

We escaped to this fabulous beach house for a family celebration & we were all thrilled with the house. It is not only beautiful but it is comfortable and just steps from the beach!! We watched the dolphins from the upstairs deck! AMAZING!! We loved the cobble rock fireplace. We even enjoyed a fire on the beach!

This beach house is absolutely fantastic! Layout is great-I also liked the family room separate from the kitchen area-gave the teens some place to "hang" and the tile floors make for easy cleaning of the sand! Decor is darling-a lot of special touches that I have in my own home! Hope to stay again sometime.

Very nicely kept house

July 29, 2009

This house is very nicely kept and well furnished. Mattresses are almost new and were much appreciated, although the one in the Master Bedroom is a little soft if you like a firmer mattress. It is a great family place. We've been renting in the area and in Hawaii for many years, and for us this was one of the top places, particularly because there is a nice sized patio in back, quite private and a great spot in which to barbecue. The master bath is very nicely done with shower, jacuzzi tub, dual sinks. Owners very responsive.We were quite surprised to find a nice bottle of wine awaiting our arrival . . never happened before in the area (and the family has been renting there for about 90 years. The house has a living room in front next to the dining and kitchen areas and a large family room in back. This room was great for our annual costume party at the beach. The small refrigerator upstairs was very helpful. Right across from the beach. Can definitely recommend. Dr. J

Wonderful location and view at the great Rio Del Mar beach. Once you get here the home has everything and the back yard is great for bbq and hosing off. Having a living room and a seperate family room gives kids and adults their own space and the 3 baths help too. The second floor deck is shielded from the wind and is great for coffee and relaxing with a great book. The home is very cute and clean and the owners have put in extras to make your stay very special. This beach has life Guards and fun bonfires. Also can walk to deli and restaurant. Being steps from such a long stretch of beautiful beach is priceless. Hope to return again next year.

My family totally enjoys this home! We have stayed here at least four times. My kids and grandchildren love to be at the beach. We just stayed a week at Thanksgiving. The house is well furnished and comfortable and the turkey turned out good too! The upstairs patio is a great place to be at sunset! The owners are very easy to work with too!

Great place for families
We went to this beach house for a quick get away with my two teenage daughter and friends. The place was perfect for us. The view and location is ideal! We spent two of the nights eating dinner at home and happen to see dolphins and whales! It was awesome. One night we went to dinner at Cafe Rio, which is walking distance from the house and it was delicious. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone. And we will be back again.

Best Time Ever
My family and I spent the weekend here and had an amazing time. The house was cozy, the beds were as comfortable as those at a high-class hotel and the view felt like a dream. I highly recommend this vacation home. If you are worried about being on a road, don't be. Very little traffic, nice neighbors and nothing but incredible memories to take with you.

Great place!
Enjoyed a wonderful weekend with friends and family. Beyond the beautiful accommodations, this house offers a nice kitchen and outdoor grill area for cooking, stocked with all of the utensils, appliances and cookware one might need. We were here in May and enjoyed watching dolphins/porpoises and whales very close to the shore. I would recommend this house to anyone looking for a relaxing beach getaway.

Thanksgiving at the Beach!
Our extended family spent a fantastic holiday at this beach house! The house is very comfortable for a large group and yet cozy for a small one - as our numbers varied over the long weekend. The kitchen is extremely well-equipped, even for a Thanksgiving meal. Ranging in ages from 12 to 70, the members of our group loved the house and its location. My husband and I actually live on the cliff just above the house, and it was a treat to spend time right at the beach. Although the street runs in front of the house, it is not noisy and does not have fast traffic. The beach is literally steps away, and clearly visible from the plentiful windows of the house. Having three bedrooms and baths makes the house great for both small and large groups. The decor is lovely and everything is very clean and in very good condition. The homeowner was extremely helpful and responsive. Our Thanksgiving was very memorable, and this house played a big part in making it so!

Great house !
We stayed at this house for a few nights to celebrate a birthday and loved the house! First of all it was spotless. It is right on the ocean and had a variety of sleeping spaces and gathering spaces. The kitchen was well-stocked with every dish & pot you might need. Very comfortable and cozy.

From Carolyn H.

Comfortable Home in an Excellent Location
We had a very pleasant stay at this vacation rental and, for the price, the location could not be better. It was very comfortable for two small families and one couple. Rio Del Mar is one of the best beaches in the Santa Cruz area and the home was just across the street with a 180 degree view of the beach. We enjoyed watching the sunsets from the balcony. Parking was easy. We also found a well-stocked kitchen to cook meals at the house. Definitely very accommodating for families.

The owner was also very professional and prompt with her responses and felt that all of our needs were more than met. We would not hesitate to make a future booking and hope to do so again very soon.
