Guest access

CasaMareAptos is a duplex. The upstairs apartment is never rented; it's our second home and we, a semi-retired couple, use it on weekends.

The house architecture provides total privacy; with guest having an exclusive use of the downstairs, fenced in back/side yards, outdoor shower, the BBQ, and 2 car driveway. The downstairs apartment has a separate entrance through the private side yard. Only the front yard is shared with the owners. There is practically no street parking. The rental comes with a 2 parking spaces in the driveway.

Interaction with guests

We spend weekends (sometimes long ones, since we love it here so much more than the hectic Silicon Valley) in the upstairs apartment. Our kids are grown so it’s just the two of us. We are available to answer any questions, to share our favorite places to visit and eat at, and, if you have time and we're around, we love to meet our guests for a glass of wine, juice and/or Marianne's ice cream.

Other things to note

Location! Location! Location! Both being scientist, we used a scientific approach, the Radar app, in selecting the warmest, least foggy beach community. We’re surprised to discover that often there is a 15 to 20 degrees difference with in less than 10 miles.
We chose our home because of proximity to the beach and it’s unique architecture.

We stayed at Marina and Sasha's place as a whole family of 6 (2 adults, 4 kids) and found it very spacious, clean and exactly as described. We didn't miss anything and especially liked the little extras and the hospitality that Marina and Sasha provided! We really had a wonderful time there!

This is a perfect place to stay. The apartement was clean and had everything we needed for our stay. We got plenty of information when we arrived. Location is very good for the beach, and travel to Santa Cruz, Monterey and Big Sur. If you are going to this area, this is the place to rent!
