Aptos house description

Just remodeled, cute and cozy cabin set in the lush Majestic Redwoods, just minutes to the beach. There is also a bunk house available that sleeps an additional 4 people for an extra charge. Get the best of both worlds with this private cottage nestled in the redwoods on 1/3 of an acre and 2 miles from Rio Del Mar Beach and 1/2 mile to Aptos Village.

Wake up surrounded by nature. Enjoy watching the deer graze just off the deck. Go for a hike in Nisene Marks State Park (just 1/2 mile away) where there are 30 miles of trails for hiking, jogging and biking. Or hang out at the beach next to The Palo Alto (or better known as 'The Cement Ship'), where you can fish from the pier.

This impressive cottage boasts over 700 square feet of decking that wraps around three sides of the the house for plenty of relaxing in the outdoors. When you're not outside, come in and enjoy the gas climate controlled floor to ceiling stone fireplace which sets the ambiance for the whole cottage.

Located at the end of a quiet road with plenty of parking, and a short distance to great restaurants and coffee shops. Check out many menus of our favorites inside the cottage. Or stay and cook in our fully equipped kitchen.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2009

              About the owner: We grew up in Northern California and always vacationed in the Santa Cruz area with our families. In 2005 we moved to Hawaii and still come back to vacation in Aptos with our children. In 2009, we found this perfect place for our family to vacation and truly love visiting.

              Why the Owner Chose Aptos:
              We loved this property from the beginning despite it's poor appearance. We worked on the property for months and got it picture perfect. We love the location because we feel like we are in the mountains, while only 2 short miles to the beach. The privacy is great too with 1/3 of an acre. It's very peaceful and quiet with very little traffic.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              The house is cozy and comfortable. The large stone fireplace is so relaxing when you turn on the fireplace. Hang out on the rear deck or the front, take a walk down our private road, or just gaze off into the forest to catch a glimpse of deer. There is shopping and restaurants just a 1/2 mile down the road. Most of the time the fog will lift at the house before it will at the beach.
