Rio del Mar house description

Family Friendly Beach House Across the Street from the Beach
Seacliff Beach, Aptos, CA

Location: Inside the gated community of Rio Surf and Sand on Beach Drive, Aptos, Santa Cruz County, CA.

Accommodations: House, 3 levels, 1 bedroom (queen bed) and bathroom on ground floor with separate entrance, 1 bedroom (queen bed) and half bath on first floor, 3 bedrooms on upper level (one king in master with full bath & jacuzzi, one double and twin trundle beds) with another full bathroom. Two living room areas.

Nestled in the small gated community of Rio Surf & Sand lies our rustic beach house, across the street from the sand and waves of our private beach adjoining Rio Del Mar Beach. The upper two levels have windows that view the water and beach. Each level has two small decks that offer a private place to enjoy the tranquility and sounds of the beach. However, the views of the beach and Monterey Bay from the glass walled upper level living room are especially beautiful! But best of all is the large roof top deck that offers unparalleled views from Santa Cruz to Monterey and Moss Landing. It's the perfect place to sunbathe, visit with your family after a swim in the ocean and enjoy a beautiful sunset with a glass of wine.

After taking walks along the miles of sandy beaches, collecting sea shells and watching the dolphins swim by at various times of the day, you can always check out the concrete ship and Museum by Seacliff Beach. Conveniently located in Aptos, our home is near shopping, golfing, restaurants, cinema, and other activities. There's kayaking and wildlife viewing at Elkhorn Slough; hiking and mountain biking at Nisene Marks State Park; boating, wind-surfing and dinner & cocktail cruises on the Chardonnay at Santa Cruz Harbor. Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk is a short drive.
