Beautiful setting and scenery
Beautiful views! Great porch to spend time with friends.
The property was perfect for our romantic weekend getaway. Our apartment was situated on the cliffs of Aptos overlooking the beautiful blue Pacific Ocean. One day, a school of dolphins swam by - we had a bird's eye view of them frolicking and playing in the surf on their way up and down the coast. We were sorry to leave and hope to come back soon!
The view was beautiful and the rooms were comfy
Unique and Spectacular
My son, his dog and I had a memorable stay. Jeanell is a great host and the rooms and view are spectacular.
Amazing ocean views and sounds from your bed
We so appreciatedon't Jeanelle's hospitality during our stay, especially when we had to be out of the studio from 2pm-12am for a wedding. She checked on our dogs, even inviting them into her main house. So kind! This allowed us to enjoy the wedding confident that our precious pups were doing great. Otherwise everything we needed was available and quickly tended to. We will be back!!
Beach views/whale watching
We spent 2 nights @ Jeanell's beach studio. We spotted a whale the first afternoon and fortunately, there was a set of binoculars available! The views of the ocean and beach were amazing!
The outdoor "kitchenette" is limited, as the owner says in her description. It is also a very cluttered area. Because everything is outside, nothing is really clean. We were visited by something in the middle of the night that ate through a bag and left a mess the next morning. We made sure to not leave anything out after that. But the second night, it returned and made scratching, gnawing noises that kept us awake. When I told Jeanell what happened,she did say that she forgot to tell us that we should put our things in an ice chest because there are cliff dwellers day and night (raccoons,skunks, squirrels, chipmunks and mice). Perhaps that suggestion should be visibly posted in the kitchen area and noted in the House Rules for safety and cleanliness concerns.
There was an informational file that provided some good tips for dining out, we especially enjoyed Johnny's Harborside and Crow's nest.
Our dealings with the owner were pleasant and brief, only meeting at the front of the house when we arrived and responding to texts about the critter.
The studio is in a good location, close to the beach. We enjoyed the view and whale watching.
Unsurpassed, unimpeded panoramic, ocean, bay, cement ship & whitewater views! Moments to Seacliff Village with famous Manuel's Mexican Restaurant, Marianne's Ice Cream, Hwy 1 Pizza within a mile, plus so much more! This has one of the most breathtaking Pacific Ocean views in Northern California. You will feel like you are on a cruise ship in the middle of the ocean, yet you are a short stroll to the steps that will lead you down to Seascape beach and the cement boat at the end of the pier.
