Hawley Beach House:  Beautifully designed to take advantage of its prime location, this house was built by the owner in the 50’s and is one of the original houses behind the private gate at Rio del Mar Beach.  Beach Drive is behind the house, so there is nothing between you and the ocean but sand!  A large room with stunning sea views contains a living room/dining area with a gas fireplace, cable TV, WiFi, comfortable furniture, Asian cabinetry, hardwood floors and oriental rugs.  Sharing the view is a galley kitchen with electric induction stove/ oven combo, refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, blender, and toaster. The Master bedroom has a queen bed with sliding glass doors which offer a view of the deck and the sea beyond! The second bedroom has a CA King bed with a flat screen television with cable. The third and final bedroom has two twin beds. All linens and bath towels included. The deck is furnished with a teak table with umbrella, chairs, and chaise lounges for relaxing when you're not at the beach!  Miles of beach extend in both directions for walks, swimming, boogie boarding and sand castle building. Dolphins and sea birds abound! Sunsets over the sea are breathtaking, especially in the winter months.

Great comfy home
We had a wonderful experience in this home. It was very comfortable and warm and the view was amazing. And walking off the deck onto the sand is unbeatable. I can't wait for our next trip to Santa Cruz hopefully we will rent this house again.

The location was amazing! The 1 and only bathroom was big, and looked remodeled in the last few years. The shower was good. The beds were a little hard, but we all slept good. There were no window coverings in the King and twin bedrooms. The kitchen was well stocked, but it was old fashioned. The table sat 6, but they had folding chairs in the twin closet which was good. There is a fire pit on the sand off the deck which was great for s'mores. They did have a closet with some books, games, flashlight, hammer, stuff like that you might need. There were a few baking sheets, broiler pan, big bowls, large pot, medium pot, but not much more then that for pots. The furniture and pictures definitely looks like flea market stuff, but it was very clean, which is a complete difference from renting from Bailey's Property in Aptos. Their beach houses are gross and filthy! We will stay there again next year!! Oh, also loved that they provided bath, hand and wash towels, 2 sets per bedroom!
Hawley house
perfect location and perfect for our family
Oasis of relaxation
We absolutely loved our stay at Hawley House. The back deck is our favorite spot to sit and watch the waves, dolphins, seals, and whales.
It's also a great place to nap! The house has everything we could need but next time we may bring a few large wine glasses. ;)

Response from Kendall and Potter: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay, we hope you come back soon! We did have the owner purchase new wine glasses, thank you for letting us know!
Myself and my family had a great time, if we can we will be back next year and try to get the hawley
beach house again. The only problem, one bathroom
Aptos Beach House
Wow is all I can say. The view from the deck and living room of this house is stunning. We brought all of our food & drink and never left the four days we stayed. We had a small family group come to the house one night for a barbecue and campfire on the beach. They are still talking about that evening. Watched dolphins and whales just past the surfline from the deck. We have already booked a return trip in October.
Sept 2015 vacation stay
The beach house was wonderful. The furnishings were comfortable, the beds comfortable except for the queen size bed.. The queen size bed has uncomfortable body indentations and is impossible to sleep in leaving the body sore and tired. The bed needs to be replaced desperately. The kitchen is well equipped, the view from the window in the living room is breath taking. The weather surprised us with a few days of unseasonably hot weather. With no AC we scrambled to find a fan in local stores nearby. Unfortunately the heatwave had made the few fans in stores fly off the shelf and there were none to be found. Luckily it was only a few days of intolerable heat. We enjoyed the convenience of the washer dryer and the outdoor shower to rinse the sand off before entering the house. We highly recommend this beach house. It was an awesome place to stay.

The view from this house is stunning. The beach itself is level and sandy so swimming is rocks like Seacliff! The house is far enough away from city lights that stargazing was an added bonus. Our party of six was very comfortable in this house. We had a great time and will rent this property again.
Outside Furniture
Just like every year, we enjoyed it--great place. One improvement we would suggest is replacing the table and chairs on the deck. The table is rusting and deteriorating. The chair legs are uneven due to rusting away.

Thank you

Response from Kendall and Potter: Thank you for staying with us again. The outside furniture has been replaced with a new teak table and chairs!
