We had a great time at a great place. Thanks for your help
Amazing family home right on the water!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at 779/The Waves. If you want to be right on the water you will literally be. It's about as close as you can possibly get. The home is well stocked, blankets, towels, kitchen equipment and dish ware. As many others reviews have stated it is a bit worn but that can be overlooked. I loved the open archttectural style of this gem. The weather was pretty rainy while there and we were a bit concerned with the water coming up so close and the sheer cliff behind the house. This house may not be for everyone but we loved it. We had 5 adults and a toddler and had plenty of room. Truly a family friendly home to enjoy on vacation!
Great Location
Recently spent a week at this rental. Everyone loved the location. You can't get closer to the beach than this. Pluses: The queen beds were very comfortable, living area was large enough for the ten of us (six adults and four children), dinning room table would seat all of us. large size private patio, security (you enter through a security gate), parking for four vehicles, location to the beach and shopping, deck facing the ocean is large and has plenty of seating, outdoor shower. Minuses: Small kitchen (but very workable), carpeting is old and needs replacing ( was told that is might be replaced by this summer), electrical outlets are old and plugs tend to fall out. Overall the home is very livable and I would love to stay here again.
Nice, but needs work
We stayed at the The Waves beach front for "Ladies' Weekend". It was a perfect location, 'right on the beach'! There could be some easy improvements to make it a 5 star. Revisit the decor - seems like someone went to garage sale and found just anything to put up on the walls, and did haphazardly. Not all the beds were fully made, so we had to do it ourselves. The front and back deck had dusty furniture with cob webs. We had to clean everything outside before we started to enjoy the ambiance. The whole house could use a good spring cleaning. The bunk beds could use more padding (hard as a rock). The part that shined though was the great responsiveness of the staff that helped arrange the stay, and of course, couldn't beat the beautiful oceanfront.
This house rocks!
This house rocks! It's not the Ritz but it is clean, has plenty of space and you can not beat sunsets on the deck with the BBQ fired up in the corner.
Kendall Potter did a good job for us. As with all rentals there were a few adjustments that needed to be made when we arrived and they were right there within the hour to fix/adjust etc.
Managing a beach rental is not easy.
The Waves was perfect!
A group of great teenagers in Santa Cruz celebrating my daughter's 18th birthday in a rustic beach house right on the ocean - perfect spot! Everyone enjoyed being steps away from the beach, the huge deck where you could watch the dolphins and waves break. Beautiful sunsets. Bonfire on the beach. Proximity to Santa Cruz.

Our weekend couldn't have gone any better!

Great beach front home
Home was great. Awesome views of the beach and as a bonus there were blue whales putting on a show for us 100m out in the water while we ate breakfast on two different mornings. Also saw lots of dolphins and sea lions.

The house was comfortable and included everything imaginable. The service was perfect and the location ideal! The proximity to the beach and the large patio to view dolphins, seals, otters and pelicans was pure bliss. We were blessed with the most beautiful weather.

Great for all age groups
Our group ranged from ages 8 to 80 and it was a perfect house for everyone. You are literally on the sand when you walk off the front deck. How much better could that get! The lay out was perfect for our needs. Enough bathrooms (3) and beds (7) for everyone.
The decor is definitely California Beach Living circa 1970 which was kind of cool... I would suggest bringing a good play list from the early 70's to get the full vibe of the place! We also loved the location. There is a great Farmers Market on Saturday's in Aptos and restaurants and grocery stores are within a mile. But other than that - DON'T leave! Just enjoy the waves and the view.

Beautiful location, great windows, child friendly
We enjoyed our stay in Aptos at The Waves. Being able to step directly onto the beach from the deck is sublime. The house is comfortable and you don't have to worry about keeping things pristine since it is family friendly. The courtyard was a nice place for the kids to run around when we didn't want them unattended on the beach. The wall of windows makes for a breath taking view all day long.
