About the Property

House: 2 Bedrooms-Large Master w Calif King, 2 twins, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Spectacular, 180-degree oceanfront views of the beautiful Monterey Bay Sanctuary. Watch dolphins, otters and sea lions from your private deck where birds fly by at eye level – a truly amazing vantage point. From this position you can actually see the sunrise and the sunset. The deck spans the entire length of the house. Located in Aptos (Seacliff) California, this home features 2 bedrooms, 2 baths. The master suite includes a California King and breathtaking ocean views to the front and park-like settings in the rear, second bedroom features two twin beds.

Well behaved pet(s) welcomed for pet owners that take responsibility for their pets. We had two miniature dachshunds so we know how hard it can be to find a place that will accept pets. Help ensure that we keep this as an option by ensuring your pet is suited to stay at someone else's home.

Enjoy shopping in quaint Capitola, hike/mountain bike at Nisene Marks Park (10,000 acres wilderness), visit the Cement Ship at Seacliff beach, walk to New Brighton Beach (dogs are allowed on leashes). Take a sunset stroll to Café Rio for dinner in Rio Del Mar or a morning walk for coffee may be more your style. Enjoy 5-star dining at Café Sparrow in old-town Aptos or visit the several new restaurants in Seacliff. Golf is just minutes away at the world class Seascape Golf Resort, there’s even a mall close by in Capitola. While visiting the Central Coast, visit the Monarch Butterflies, Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk and Amusement Park – Phil’s Fish Market in Moss Landing and the Monterey Bay Aquarium, 17 Mile Drive, and Pebble Beach.

Note: The home is two stories. You are renting the entire second story (upstairs - reverse floor plan - 1 Master bedroom, 2 bathrooms, living room, kitchen, dining room, exclusive access to the ocean front deck).

On the opposite side of the house where the 2nd bedroom is located - there is an "in law" unit under this bedroom (meaning it is on the first floor) where a single professional resides full time. This single working professional uses off street parking. The driveway is used only by tenants renting the home on VRBO. This person should not be disturbed during your stay. If you have any issues with the unit, please contact me as the owner.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: We are blessed with this unique location and are happy to share it with others. We use the home too - so it's designed to be enjoyed by people who treat things with respect.

Why the Owner Chose Aptos, CA, USA:
It was a life long dream to own an ocean front home in such a wonderful resort area. Nothing is more relaxing to us than sitting on the deck and watching sea life and listening to and watching the ocean surf.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
As a base, there are countless things to do and explore: Santa Cruz Beach and Boardwalk, Capitola, Seacliff Beach, New Brighton Beach and Natural Bridges which is the home of the migrating Monarch Butterflies. If you want a little drive up or down the coast - you can visit Half Moon Bay to the north and The Monterey Bay Aquairium, Carmel and 17 mile Drive to the south.
