Aptos house description

Gorgeous beach house nestled at the end of a very quiet, dead end street in Rio Del Mar, Aptos. Our home is three houses from a large greenspace at Hidden Beach Park (great for children), which opens up to Hidden Beach. This is a very private location, there are no houses across the street from ours, only a eucalyptus grove and then the beach. There is a paved walking pathway through the eucalyptus grove to the beach, about a three to five minute walk from the house. You can sit on our deck and listen to the roar of the ocean.
Hidden Beach is a local’s beach located between Rio Del Mar beach and Seascape beach, walking distance along the beach to both. We enjoy having fires on the beach and roasting marshmellows. You can often see dolphins and sea otters at play from our beach. Our NON SMOKING home is COMPLETELY REMODELED and decorated in a palm tree/beach motif, with an excellent open, split level floor plan. Both bathrooms have doubble sinks and huge soaking tubs with dual shower heads. There is a gas fireplace in living room. The kitchen is well equipped and has doubble ovens and
5 burner gas cooktop. There is a flat screen TV in the living room with cable TV. All three bedrooms have TVs. There is plenty of off street parking. Our Beach House has all the comforts of home, with approximately 1800 square feet of living space, with great open floor plan for entertaining. There are steps leading up to the front door.

The back yard has comfortable patio dining furniture, a barbeque, as well as an outdoor fire pit. There are boogie boards and beach toys for your enjoyment. We even have a little red wagon for you to haul your things to the beach in.

There is a deck that wraps around two sides of the house with outdoor furniture, which is nice for lounging on, listing to the ocean and bird watching. The grove of trees across the street attracts lots of birds.

BE SURE TO READ THE GUEST COMMENTS THAT HAVE BEEN WRITTEN BY OTHERS WHO HAVE STAYED IN OUR HOME. You will see it is truly a wonderful home in a fabulous location.

Our home is conveniently located between world famous Monterey Bay and Santa Cruz, with many wonderful restaurants and activities near by. The Beach Boardwalk and Seascape resort golf course are nearby with an 18-hole golf course and driving range.

Also nearby is world famous Monterey Bay, hosting some of the best scuba diving in the US, as well as the infamous Monterey Bay aquarium and Cannery Row, a treat for all ages.
Rates: off season $275 per night,
Holidays $400 per night, summer $2350 per week, plus occupancy tax and cleaning fee
