Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms with queen beds + 1 rollaway bed, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 5)

This two bedroom, 1100 sq. ft. home has two floors, and 1.5 bathrooms. It has just gone through a major upgrading with new architectural custom paint colors, bathroom fixtures, appliances and more.

Each bedroom is equipped with a queen bed and quality bedding. One bedroom looks out on the Seascape Sports Club and tennis courts and the other overlooks the backyard and bocce court. A small flat screen TV is in master bedroom.

Enjoy a large private back yard with new fencing, Weber barbecue and an emerging sculpture garden. Grill fresh wild salmon on mesquite charcoal ignited by a propane gas assist. Roast marshmallows over birch embers in the fire pit for delicious, yet messy Smore's. Teak table and four chairs outside with blue bench all with cushions (in garage) for eating or spectating for your Bocce tournament or dinner.

The great room downstairs is nicely appointed with plank oak hardwood floors, gas fireplace, broadband internet and a HD flat screen television connected to Comcast. Small desk for writing or answering email is provided with free wireless (Password is located in picture frame on desk). A sectional sofa coffee table grace the living room area. An Ipad dock is available for your downloaded music.

if you enjoy long walks on the beach, this is the place to vacation. We are located one block from Seascape Resort. Once at the resort, take the cement path down to the beach and you can walk forever. On one side, you can walk to Sunset Beach. On the other side, all the way to Capitola. If your priority is suntanning, shore fishing, surfing, bird watching, photographing the dolphin at Seascape shores many months a year, or just relaxing and get the fast-paced city life out of your system, Seascape Beach, Bocce and Brie is the place is for you.

At the Seascape Resort enjoy Sanderlings Restaurant or have a beer or margarita in their bar or on their patio overlooking the azure blue Pacific Ocean.

Just across the street from our front door are the amenities of Seascape Village. The Village features Palapas, a regional favorite Mexican restaurant, a Chinese restaurant and Village Host pizza parlor. In addition, you may do your grocery shopping at Seascape Market or have a latte at the Full of Beans coffee shop. Once you park you might never have to get in your car until you leave.

Here are a few reviews from guests that signed our in-house guest book:

'Had lots of fun at the beach. The walk was fairly short. All the sleeping arrangements worked out well with 4 people. The stores ands shops were conveniently close. Thank you for letting us stay at your wonderful home!

'Enjoyed the boardwalk and several beaches in the area-cement ship, Natural Bridges, Capitola, Rio del Mar. Heading to Gilroy Gardens on our way out of town.

Enjoyed all the sand toys & beach bocce, as well as the bocce in the back yard.

Thanks for the great price for our vacation.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit here. The place was amazing--even nicer than the pictures. We enjoyed long walks on the beach, and took advantage of the location to pursue day trips to Napa, Monterey, Carmel, and Santa Cruz. Thank you for allowing us to use your home.

Thank you so much for letting us stay in your awesome home. We had an absolutely great time a the Boardwalk, Seascape Beach, and sightseeing in Aptos, Capitola and Santa Cruz. We also loved hanging out in the backyard playing Bocce ball, BBQ'ing and telling ghost stories around the firepit.

Why Chris Di Salvo chose Central Coast

We decided to purchase our beach property in the Seascape area of Aptos because we have gone to that beach our entire life. So, when we were looking for property and this was available it was a natural fit for us.

What makes this condo unique

The Seascape area is unique. It is quiet and convenient. There are many weekends that we park our car on Friday afternoon and never use it until we are going home. The beach is wonderful. We enjoy taking long walks on the beach where you can walk for miles. We also enjoy playing tennis at Seascape Sports Club as well as golf at the Seascape Golf Course.

the property was nice, its a good place to saty while in Aptos

  • 4 of 5

Unfortunately we didn't get to spend much time at the place. Our visit was a rushed one as I was just in the area for the Ironman 70.3 in Santa Cruz. Would have been nice to have stayed longer but life didn't allow it. Aptos is a great place to come relax and enjoy.

The home was clean, the beds were comfortable. Parking was good. Restaurants across the street were ok at best. The shower leaked water on to the floor so you have to be cautious and make sure to pull the curtain back inside the back wall of the tub to prevent that. That was only problem I noted. I would stay here again.

We had a wonderful 5 day stay. Located in the perfect place for our family.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed your home. Spent one day at Sunset Beach and another at the Boardwalk. Breakfast at Full of Beans was delicious. Coming back to the house after long days at the UCSC soccer field was so relaxing. Girls had a great time playing bocce ball while we cooked dinner and watched the Olympics. I only wish the master tv cable box had been activated. We will definitely be back! Thank you again!

Location was amazing!

  • 5 of 5

The owners were so quick to respond during the booking process. The location was so great...I loved that we never had to get in the car for the weekend and we could just enjoy the weather and the beach! It was truly a relaxing vacation. The house has everything we needed! I will definitely come again and stay longer next time!

Perfect location with easy beach access!

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with our stay! This property is clean and comfortable, it had everything we needed. The location is within easy walking distance of the beach and shopping/restaurants. The beach access is through the Sea Cliff resort with no stairs so strollers have easy access and the beach area is clean with nice sand for kids to play in.

We were able to bring in food and cook with all kitchen utensils, plates and appliances supplied. We were able to make s'mores over the backyard fire pit and enjoy the backyard space where there is also a BBQ for outdoor grilling. Linens were supplied and beds were comfortable. There is a washer and dryer in the garage where there is also enough space to park a small car.

Santa Cruz was a little farther then we thought but the boardwalk was worth the trip, the kids loved it!

We had a wonderful time and enjoyed our stay at this property, we would absolutely go back.

Plus or Minus

  • 3 of 5

The location of this property is a plus: close to essentials shopping, close to great dining and beach. We had a superb meal at the resort that is close-by (within walking distance). We were also able to get a "lift" by the resort luggage and check-in people for a ride on a golf cart to the beach. Not sure if I could have made the walk without that ride. This 2 bedroom small "condo-style" is a good get-away for a couple. I stayed with my daughter and granddaughter (a 3-yr old). I mention that because some of the decorations in the living room could easily be broken by children, namely the sand dollars/shells.

The minus: The two beds have very soft mattresses, so much so that, in the smaller bedroom, I would not recommend it for adults. The larger bedroom has a nice ceiling fan, but it gets noisy at night from street traffic. We had trouble working the TV/video in the living room so I would suggest laminated instructions for use to help guide the guests. I think this deserves a 3-star rating due to the location and the price.

Owner's Response: I would not recommend this tenant as a future tenant for other properties. She phoned me about the television, I actually had a neighbor go over and assist her and she refused any assistance. In addition, we stayed in our own property after she vacated and found that she had turned the mattress in one of the bedrooms. We pride ourselves in keeping up our very special home. This review is one of those unfair reviews and one must consider the source.
