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.

About Amy Love

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.

Amy Love purchased this house in 2005

Why Amy Love chose Aptos

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

It is our second time in that house . The view is phenomenal

  • 4 of 5

The view is phenomenal, the owner is always friendly and respond within/less than one hour. However, the house need to have some upgrades, the owner is putting it on the market. The inside is getting old, the bedding and the towels should be new, they looked used. It need some TLC.

Relaxing beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here. The home has the most beautiful view with a large deck area. The house is comfortable with everything you need on a very quiet street. We couldn't have asked for anything more. Thank you.

180 degree ocean view + gorgeous weather = good time for all

  • 5 of 5

The rental lived up to its reviews. We were four women of various ages that all enjoyed themselves within their own element. The 90-year old loved the deck with the ocean gazing and sun bathing. The others enjoyed walking and running the dogs along the beach. The home cook liked the kitchen with its spectacular views while meal prepping. The 20 something also liked the cable tv that she doesn't get at home...hummm I wonder why?

All in all, a very pleasant place to splurge for a getaway or vacation.
