About Myriam Cohen
Combined Myriam and Mikey have lived in Santa Cruz for over 35 years. We have 3 young children ages 3, 5, and 7, and spend a lot of our free time tromping in the forests here in Santa Cruz, running, going to the beach, gardening, and reveling in large cooking projects using our local bounty of available foods.
Myriam Cohen purchased this House in 2015
Why Myriam Cohen chose Aptos
We purchased this property to have as a getaway for us and our friends, and vacationers like yourself. This property is so close to Rio del Mar beach, so it's just a short 2 minute walk back home if you forget sunscreen, or you want to cook up lunch, etc. The house is comfortable, with modern, brand new amenities. An extensive total remodel was just recently completed, so all of the appliances, bathroom fixtures, etc are nearly brand new.
What makes this House unique
This house is a perfect home for a family or 1 or 2 couples to have a relaxing weekend so close to one of the best (if not the best!) beach on the central coast. You can walk this beach for miles in either direction, it is not very crowded, and the weather here is never too hot and never too cold. Rio del Mar feels like a small beach town, yet it is 10 miles to Santa Cruz, and less than 40 miles from the Silicon Valley.

Wonderfully relaxing holiday!
The beach house is as described - bright, well equipped and very comfortable. Myriam was very easy and pleasant to communicate with, responding very promptly to any inquiries we had. The location of the beach house is excellent for wonderful beach walks and exploring the magnificent redwood forest state parks and beautiful coastal areas like Monterey, Carmel, Big Sur and near by Capitola. We enjoyed our two weeks of holiday and would happily return again.
Nice and cozy, very short walk to the beach, nice neighborhood
Our family really enjoyed staying here. It is in a great location. Close to the beach as well as a coffee shop and a few other eateries. We loved being able to just walk everywhere. We also appreciated all the information given to us from the owner regarding the location and things to do nearby. We look forward to staying here again.
I'm so glad you had a good stay, and I am always glad when people get something out of the booklet we put together. Hope you and yours can come back again!
Another great stay at Coast Queen
This was our 4th stay here. As always it was clean and well equipped for everything needed. Having a washer and dryer makes packing light a dream! Myriam is always attentive and quick to communicate when needed. We love staying here for our annual family picnic at Seacliff State Park. It’s an easy walk. Plus many restaurants to chose from and a great Safeway a short drive away. I plan on coming back again.
Fantastic beach house at Rio Del Mar in Aptos
This is our second stay at this beach house, and we plan to come back again. We love how clean and orderly the house is kept. The owners keep it up very well. It has a wonderful outside deck with a bbq and lounge chairs. It is only a 2 minute walk to our favorite beach, Rio Del Mar. Highly recommended!
Thanks for your kind review! We'll be glad for you to come back again!
Needs some updates
Downstairs smells moldy in the queen bedroom.
Bunk bedroom is a dark hole. (I slept on the coach and gave my friend the queen bed.)
Bedroom blinds are broken.
Bathroom towel rack broken. No toiletries like a small bar of soap provided.
The vent hood in bathroom moldy/dusty.
Upstairs furniture needs some spot cleaning.
Kitchen is well equipped.
Deck nice for sitting outdoors.
But the view is only a hotel. Walk a block to the beach is a plus!
Hosts replied promptly to WiFi issues.
TV cable news and Netflix froze several times and everything needed to be unplugged to fix. (Frustrating by the 3rd time.)
I appreciated you letting me know about the blinds - they had not been broken the week before, and I ordered new ones the day you told me. Same with the bathroom towel rack - fixed, and thanks for letting me know.
I have not heard about the king bedroom smelling bad before and it does not have an odor that I can detect.
I'll have the cleaners take a look at the vent hood, as this is not something we have noticed.
