Great Location
We stay here every year. The view and the location are the highlights for us. Because there isn't public parking at the beach, it doesn't get very crowded, we love it. The beds are very comfortable and the hot tub is much appreciated. Thanks Aquarius!
On the beach
All stars for location, you can't be any closer to a sandy beach. Views of the ocean from the house are great! Walk to coffee or food or just use the house's good kitchen. Had a great week .. as restful or active as you want. Thanks!

Kendall & Potter Response: 

We are so glad you had a great week!  We look forward to working with you again in the near future!
Beautiful home on one of the best beaches in Santa Cruz - right on the sand!!!
We actually live about 6 miles from this house with our own beautiful Ocean View but we rented Aquarius for our Daughter's Sweet 16 and we couldn't have been happier! The home is located right on the sand near Santa Moes Beach. The views from the Living Room, upper deck (with awesome hot tub!), and lower level Patio are to die for! The lower level Flagstone Patio is set up very nicely with a fire pit, Weber BBQ, lots of comfy chairs, tables, hammock, and an outdoor shower. The Owners seem like very cool, down to earth, funny people that truly want their guests to have a memorable time at their beach house. We loved all the great local art/framed posters from local events such as the Begonia Festival, Wharf to Wharf, etc. Summer at Kendall & Potter was fantastic to work with from start to finish. I spoke to at least 8 other Vacation Property Managers before we rented this home. Summer was the most personable and professional by a long shot!! The entire process was easy and seamless. Being local, I had the advantage of being able to drive around to my favorite spots in Santa Cruz which is how I found the Aquarius. If you are looking for a fantastic Vacation Rental on the Beach. look no further than Summer at Kendall & Potter and the Aquarius.
It was great to watch waves hit the beach from this property. You could see the waves from the living room, kitchen, and hot tub on the outside deck. The house was just right size for all 8 of us. The only complaint I have, is that beach access his hard because lagoon by house is getting larger and filling with more water. All in all, good time for my family.
Great location!
Our family stayed here for a week and loved it. The location is the best part with a full view. It is right on the beach, easy assess to the beach, constant amazing views from inside the house and on both decks as well as the patio. We enjoyed the clean hot tub under the stars, had fires in the patio fire pit, walked on the beach and used the well equipped kitchen.
The master bed was too soft for us, but that's a preference thing. Downstairs worked out fine for my son, his wife and two little ones. The two bathrooms and whole house were clean.
Bring binoculars, you'll want to identify what that was in the ocean. I tried to get some from the rental managers, but that couldn't happen.
They could use a better banister outside for younger hands, almost fell a couple of times.
It's not fancy inside for the high price, but comfy. We loved it and were grateful to stay here.
Awesome location and kitchen is nice! Loved using the hot tub. Will book again!
Beach front old style comfort
Perfect for informal family gatherings. Awesome kitchen. Wonderful patio. Feels like home in a sensational setting.
Great location!
Once again we very much enjoyed our time at the Aquarius House. The updates made our stay even better. Love the new deck furniture!
Awesome weekend...
The place was perfect in every way...
Great location and views
Location, view and the patios are the highlights of this rental. Living room furniture was comfortable, as were the beds. The bathrooms were clean. The chairs on the upstairs patio are very uncomfortable; it would be great if they were replaced. The kitchen needs some serious cleaning out of duplicate pans/ dishes, and just old, non-usable ones, as well as organization. We had to pull everything out of the pantry and organize it just to make room on a few shelves for our own food and to be able to find the dishes we needed when cooking. The kitchen could use a good cleaning, cupboards and handles of them were dirty and sticky. Also, the dishwasher doesn't work well at all; all of the dishes were left with a cracked on soap film. The kitchen table chairs are old and dirty, new ones would really make a difference. The hot tub is old, had sand in bottom and jets only worked on high; it would be great if replaced with a new model. Cleaning out some of the old, out dated furnishings would really create space and brighten up the place.

Response from Owner:
We are glad that you enjoyed your stay at the beach, and thank you for your useful comments. We are planning several improvements, and it's nice to know where to spend our efforts. Before the spring, we will cover most of your concerns with a new dishwasher and some new furnishings. We have been reluctant to replace the hot tub because no one makes an equivalent deep model like this anymore, but I guess its time has passed.
