Aptos house description

We invite you to enjoy our beautiful 2500 square foot home in a peaceful residential neighborhood. Perfect for a romantic getaway or for 2 families to share a relaxing vacation at the beach! Walk 10 minutes to Rio del Mar Beach, right next to Seacliff State Beach, where you'll find a convenience store, a deli, a restaurant and a coffee shop, as well as free beach parking. Santa Cruz and Capitola are a short drive away.

This 2 story, 3 bedroom, 3.5 bath home features an open floor plan you'll love, new kitchen and ocean views from all bedrooms and living areas. The upper and large lower decks provide additional areas for you to relax and enjoy your getaway.

Upstairs you'll find one master bedroom with separate tub and shower and walk in closet. The family room features a gas fireplace, 55' LED flat screen TV and sectional sofa. The upper deck has panoramic ocean and beach views. The dining room has seating for 8, as well as a bar attached to the kitchen that seats 4 more. The fully equipped kitchen features new appliances, including a dishwasher and wine refrigerator. You'll also find a half bath and washer/dryer upstairs.

The spacious lower level includes a second master bedroom with private full bathroom, as well as a 3rd bedroom and separate bathroom. The family room with 47' LED flat screen TV opens onto the large lower deck with the same beautiful ocean views. You'll also find a patio table that seats 6, a gas BBQ, a hammock, 2 Adirondack chairs and a gas fire pit for keeping you warm on chilly seaside evenings. A full size inflatable bed is available as well.

The garage is stocked with bikes, scooters and beach chairs, as well as sand toys and boogie boards for your enjoyment.

Aptos and the surrounding areas have something for everyone! Golf, the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, shopping and dining in Capitola, hiking, surfing, fishing, biking and much much more!

Our driveway is gated and is quite steep. In order to open the gate, someone in your party will have to walk up the driveway, open the house with the lock box key and get the gate remote from inside the house.

If you have your heart set on a specific date but it shows as reserved, please email us to ask about it anyway!

Reserve now and begin planning your fun/relaxing/memorable time at the beach!

October 2013: New hardwood floors in the living areas and new deck!

                  Location

                  Our home is located in a quiet residential family neighborhood. We have beautiful ocean views-my photos don't do it justice!

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2011

                  About the owner: We live in the Bay Area but love spending time at the beach so our Aptos home was a perfect choice for us. Our 2 sons enjoy bringing friends over for the weekend whenever we can get away.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  This is truly a second home for us, not just a vacation home. We hope you'll love it as much as we do and that you'll come back!
