Property description

Beachside Aptos is a comfortable, dual-level, family town home situated 1 block from the beach at Rio Del Mar… just far enough to feel peacefully apart from the crowds, but an easy amble to the beach.

There is also a shopping center with a major grocery store; sundries and hardware stores; a movie theater and other shops and restaurants nearby.

This furnished vacation home has vaulted ceilings; tile and carpeted floors; large, open floor plan; and its own private deck. The secluded deck is a wonderful spot to relax and listen to the ocean. The kitchen has a bar counter with bar stools and a separate family style dining table. The tiled counter tops. Dishes, utensils, and appliances are included. Heating and ceiling fans makes this home comfortable year-round. Enjoy the great outdoors on the peaceful and serene Rio Del Mar Beach.
