About Rio Del Mar Vacation Rentals in Aptos, California

Rio Del Mar and Aptos don’t have many hotel or resort options, yet this is one of the best places on the sandy shores of Monterey Bay. If you plan to stay in Rio Del Mar for more than a day or two, consider staying in a vacation rental. Many of these vacation rentals require a stay of 3 days minimum, but it’s worth considering them for a longer trip as you get more space, a full kitchen, and the feel of “living” in this fantastic beachside community.

There are several beaches in the Aptos area, some are well-known like Seacliff State Beach and some are hidden. Just to the north you have urban Santa Cruz with a kid-friendly boardwalk and a popular Main Beach. After a short drive to the south, you can find uncrowded beaches like Palm Beach and Zmudowski Beach. Rio Del Mar is the perfect base camp for a coastal vacation on Monterey Bay. Booking a vacation rental might be the best way to go.
