Our family has been coming to Aptos every summer for 31 years. Our five kids, grown now, and 11 grandchldren love it here, too. With our central location we are able to spend our days at the beach, Boardwalk, pool, etc., then end the evening with a soak in the hot tub. It's the life!

What makes this condo unique

Walk on the beach, try new restaurants, go wine tasting, visit nearby Moss Landing, Carmel and Capitola! Some of the Best Golf courses walking distance too! the choices are endless. Discover the Bamboo Forest in the the town of Freedom, just minutes away. The carefree way of life here is a welcome change from my busy schedule at home. I always look forward to my Aptos oasis.

Relaxing Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Love staying here! The pool is steps away from the patio, very convenient! The condo it's self has everything you need for your trip, fully equipped kitchen, 2 full bathroom, bbq, 1 garage to park in. This area of Aptos, Capitola has the best weather! Farmers market at Capitola college is Mims away. So it's Capitola beach and Aptos beach. So much to do if you desire!

Family visit

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this condo very much. It was very comfortable and ideal for our family visit. Also only a few minutes from our family and from the centre of Capitola. We were a little disappointed the pool was unheated and so cold it was unusable. However the hot tub was very nice.

Owner's Response: Yes, it was a cold December too. I know people who rent in the warmers months really enjoy the pool. I enjoy the Hot Tub/Spa the most! Thanks, Brian

Great condo! Clean, but smelled of cat urine in some parts of the place. Nice kitchen and patio! Close to the beach.

Owner's Response: Future Renters: There has never ever been a cat inside the condo. Outside there may be cats that belongs to someone but we don't have one. I have never had anyone say that there was cat odor anywhere. Our place was also freshly painted and has all bamboo floors. My other tenants have never smelled a cat.

Happy in Aptos

  • 5 of 5

This was the 2nd summer season we spent at this wonderful condo. As soon as we entered , we

felt relaxed, comfortable and at home. (We enjoyed the new flat screen TV )

There is easy access to beaches, shopping at 41st street, and dining in Capitola, Santa Cruz and Aptos. Can't beat the location. If you enjoy outdoor farmer's markets, there is a Saturday morning market within walking distance from the condo at Cabrillo College and one on Sunday morning at Seascape which is minutes away by car.

The pool and hot tub are steps away from the condo. This was a big plus for us.

We were able to grill outside on the private patio and enjoy a quiet dinner when we wanted to.

Having our own garage was great after a leisurely day at the beach or coming home with packages.

This condo location afforded us plenty of relaxation and recreation. It was a thoroughly enjoyable stay,

which we look forward to repeating again and again. It would be a great stay in any season!
