                      Location

                      Seacliff Visitor Center/Museum, Great Fun at the Santa Cruz Flea Market Friday, Saturday, and Sunday on Soquel Ave off 41st St. Enjoy the drive on Soquel from Rio Del Mar to Santa Cruz with endless coffee, sandwich, organic shops. Not to mention all the Antique Stores. Then at Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk is the famous Wood Roller Coaster. Adjacent to Boardwalk is Santa Cruz Wharf. We have tried 'every' clam chowder at Wharf -- Our favorite is Stagnaro's (at end of wharf) We buy a gallon, drive back to beach home & enjoy. An absolute must is Santa Cruz Diner on Ocean Blvd. Doesn't matter what you are hungry for they have it, their prices & portions can't be beat. (featured on Diner's, Drive In's & Dives.)Don't miss the Santa Cruz Harbor with Crows Nest & Aldo's (also seen on Diners, Drive In's & Dives) Of course the Montery Wharf is only 40 minutes away. More great food AND on the way to Monterey is Phils Fish Market & Restaurant (featured on Diners, Dive Ins & Dives) More Antique Shops

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2006

                      Why the Owner Chose Aptos:
                      After 15 years of RVing with our sons at Seacliff State Park every available weekend or week, this was 'Our Beach'!! We had spent endless hours fishing from the famous Palo Alto Ship, walking the warm sand, endless talks, laughing, sharing dreams, building a life of unforgettable memories. When we pulled up with Realtor, saw the Palo Alto Cement Ship (where we had spent endless hours with the boys fishing from the ship) we knew we were home. We love every minute we are here. It is an absolute dream come true. And we have spent the last 4 years trying to make it a place our renters will want to return again & again.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Great Location, Great weather, Relaxing days sitting around playing cards, board games, dominoes, and even putting puzzles together. I guess a unique thing of beach home is that you can sit at the table & chairs on front brick patio, get caught up with all the bicylists zooming down the hill OR slowly pedaling up the hill. We even have a guy on a unicyle who peddles up the hill!! We truly enjoy 'people watching' -- Listening to the seals -And if you tire of that there is the quiet back patio overlooking the beautiful Aptos Valley.
