Oh what a wonderful feeling! Enjoy the beach life in a gem of a neighborhood that is super friendly, relaxing and fun. The beach stretches for miles, where long walks work up your appetite for a great meal at home or at nearby restaurants or delis. (Pixie Deli = Yum) The ocean is perfect for swimming, boogie boarding, skimboarding and surfing. People of all ages enjoy this setting. There is so much to enjoy here. The sunsets are picture perfect and the California coastline is mesmerizing to watch. It is not uncommon to see dolphins, sea lions, otters etc...The Beach House is just a 2 minute walk to the sand. There are public restrooms, firepits, and places to buy coffee, lunch and dinner at friendly neighborhood eateries right across from the beach. If you walk north you will travel through Seacliff State Park and at low tide all the way to Capitola. If you stroll south you will pass countless beautiful beach homes and other parks. This area is very dog friendly, but be sure to keep your pooch on a leash. A short drive from Aptos is attraction filled Santa Cruz with its beach boardwalk and amusement park. Just a smidge south you will find the luxurious Seascape Resort with a golf course.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We are a beach loving family from San Jose that has enjoyed this area since forever! You can feel the laid back energy this gem of a neighborhood has as you casually stroll around. There are hidden hillside trails you can go on that lead up to the most spectacular ocean views. The beach stretches on and on; you can literally walk for miles. We love staying at our beach home because you can't help but feel relaxed. Any tension you may have melts from your neck and shoulders the minute you see the ocean view. It really is a little slice of heaven and we are grateful to have this home away from home!

Why the Owner Chose Aptos:
We purchased this home as a get-away for family and friends. It is in our favorite beach neighborhood with lots of friendly folks. The views from the three decks and the positive energy that exudes from this happy home is why we love it. The beach is perfect for us because we like to boogie-board, skim board and take long walks. There are volleyball courts and firepits nearby. It really has everything you could want for a beach get-away.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The location of this home is ideal in that there are local businesses around the block that make it that more cozy of a neighborhood. Just around the corner is a favorite deli, Pixie Deli, they have super friendly service and delicious breakfasts and lunches. Your dog can hang out there in the outdoor picnic area too! For morning coffee lovers there is a coffee shop and for dinner the local Cafe Rio can't be beat when you can take a stroll along the beach after dinner and then walk home as well. The main benefit of the house is the unique roof top deck, aptly named 'Heaven's Roost'. The views are tops!
