              Car: Recommended

              This is an amazing area for outdoor activities. The Forest of Niesne Marks Park offers world class mountain biking, gorgeous walks in the redwoods. Rio Del Mar is one of the most sought after destinations for its long stretches of beach and watching the dolphins play in the waves. Also, fishing at the pier as well as surf fishing off the beach. Famous Beach Boardwalk within a 10 minute drive or kayaking with sea otters, seals and other wildlife or bird watching in Moss Landing/Elkhorn Slough. Five Golf Courses to challenge every player within short driving distance (Pasatiempo, DeLaveaga, Seascape, Spring Hills, Pajaro) or drive to Monterey for golfing at Pebble Beach, Poppy Hills, Spanish Bay, Monterey Municipal Course and many others. Monterey and Carmel is a beautiful sightseeing 30 minute drive.

              Stay at home and enjoy one of our private patios. Also enjoy sitting by the fire with a glass of your favorite beverage. There are also many award-winning wineries and breweries in the local area.

              You may also want to go to the beach and have a beach barbeque, bonfire, build sand castles, or just body surf in the waves.

              One can also antique in the quaint villages of Aptos and Capitola.

              Henry Cowell Park is also near by with its historic landmark trees and the Single -Guage Railroad (Roaring Camp) for a ride in the redwoods.

              Santa Cruz Pier has great seafood restaurants, fishing and the famous Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1983

              About the owner: John & I have been married for 20 years and we use our home to escape the everyday business world and relax. We love to come here and enjoy the local activities as well as to rest, read a book, take walks on the beach, or drive to Carmel Valley and visit with friends.

              Why the Owner Chose Rio del Mar:
              When young, our family used to vacation in Rio Del Mar area. The sand and surf was a wonderful getaway from the San Joaquin Valley hot sun.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              The Spanish architecture that goes with the Monterey Area made us feel part of history with the California Spanish Culture. The view made us feel tranquil but we also like the privacy of being 3 blocks from the beach. The ocean waves and the clean air gets us away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
