Property description

This spacious 3-bedroom, 2-story condo is ideal for families and for entertaining. Also ideal for a girls' getaway weekend. Downstairs are two bedrooms and a lovely large shared bathroom. The largest bedroom has a double bed, a fantastic view of the ocean, and a sitting area. The sitting area contains a sofa that converts into another queen bed. The smaller bedroom has two twin beds.

Upstairs is the master bedroom with bath and a queen bed, a fully stocked kitchen, and a living/dining area with expansive ocean views. A large patio off the master bedroom has a gas barbecue and plenty of room for catching the sun and outdoor dining. A smaller balcony off the living room is ideal for relaxing, seeing pelicans fly by, enjoying frequent visits by dolphins to the bay below, and watching the sun set over Santa Cruz harbor.

The kitchen is fully stocked. The owners cook, so you are likely to find all the necessary equipment! Both bathrooms have tub/shower combinations, and the newly remodeled downstairs bath has dual sinks. A washer and dryer are on the downstairs level. Your entertainment choices include cable TV, DVD and VCR, and a iPhone/iPod player. The condo complex has a small pool and a hot tub.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1994

About: Very happily married for 20 years, ocean loving couple with 5 grown children. We've celebrated birthdays, New Year's, Valentine's day, and lots of occasions here in Aptos. We so enjoy a quick getaway weekend, a week with friends, or just some quiet time away from the usual pressures.

Why Aptos:
We love the salt air, gorgeous views, the quiet, and the short walk to beautiful Aptos beach.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
This is an ideal base for a getaway weekend or a longer vacation. Miles of sandy beach can be accessed one block away. Within 20 minutes drive of the condo you can find many fine restaurants, golfing, the charming town of Capitola, the Santa Cruz Boardwalk, hikes in the redwoods at 'The Forest of Nisene Marks State Park,' kayaking among sea lions, otters, and pelicans at the Elkhorn Slough, and many other activities.
