Aptos house description

Aptos Oaks is a spacious, comfortable and unique family vacation home situated on 2/3 acre just above the Pacific Coast Highway. It is 10 miles south of the City of Santa Cruz and 40 miles north of Monterey, 1 mile to Aptos Village and 1 mile from Rio Del Mar Beach- access to a 14-mile stretch of gorgeous Monterey Bay.

Santa Cruz was the inspiration for the Beach Boys song 'Surf City'- and all ocean-based activities, including the Boardwalk amusement park, wharf, fishing and surfing are easily accessed. There are 5 golf courses within 20 miles and spectacular hiking trails beginning in Nisene Marks State Park, 1 mile from the house. The Monterey Peninsula, with Carmel Village, famous scenery, more golf, shopping and Aquarium is about 45 minutes by car.

The house is fully furnished and equipped and is highly suitable for multi or extended families. Unlike many vacation rentals, our house is set up as a turn-key operation- you only need to bring personal items and food. Paper products, common kitchen staples, linens and towels are provided. As my father used to say 'This is a Bed and Make Your Own D---Breakfast!'

For many in my family's extended circle, the house has a special place in their memories. Relaxation, fun, hospitality and good food- that is what Aptos Oaks represents. In that same spirit, we offer it as a place for you and yours.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1945

              About the owner: We are a family of four lucky to own this wonderful, large and quirky house. Renting allows us to not only maintain, but continue to upgrade it for everyone's enjoyment.

              Why the Owner Chose Aptos:
              We inherited the house, which began as a small cabin purchased by my parents many years ago.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              The house is ideally located for enjoying the best of the area- the redwood forests and the beautiful beaches of Monterey Bay. And yet, there is convenient shopping nearby, as well as restaurants and movie theaters.
