About Dennis Smallie

We are a family from Stockton, California (2 hours from Aptos) therefore, we use a management company one block away from our property that caters to your needs.

Dennis Smallie purchased this condo in 2003

Why Dennis Smallie chose Central Coast

Location, Location, Location. Eleven years ago we walked into this condo, saw the magnificent view from the front room and without looking at the rest of the condo we knew that God had led us to this purchase.

What makes this condo unique

We enjoy the serenity from the location which provides a tremendous ocean and beach view along with the fresh smell of the ocean. From the condo we really enjoy watching the dolphins jump out of the water several times a day. Of course the highlight is spending time on the beach picnicking, boogie boarding, body surfing, having bonfires, etc., which is all just steps from our front door. When we need something, the liquor store, deli, restaurant, coffee shop or bar are all within a one minute walk.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Another year, another week at your wonderful beach condo. This is year 2 for our family and we so enjoy staying here. We saw the porpoises everyday of our stay. Always such a treat. It's a wonderful way to end our summer. Thanks for such a wonderful place to stay.

Aptos Beachfront Condo

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful place to stay! It had fantastic views of Aptos's beach front, could be seen right from the back patio. Great location, surrounded by a wonderful town with plenty of food and attractions to keep anyone satisfied on a vacation. All the essentials you need, including a full kitchen, outdoor grill, silverware, and dishes. Although this is a prime location, traffic is not a concern. Also the sleeping arrangements were very accommodating. On my trip, we had five people with us, and everyone had a comfortable place to stay. Also great shower and restroom. Aptos was a pleasant, quite neighborhood perfect for an ideal vacation. I would recommend this location to any of any age or any type of vacations you are trying to have. Not to mention the sun sets are amazing.

It's the place to be

  • 5 of 5

Very charming facility with breath taking views. Beach, thrift store and cafe just a quick walk from the front door. Beautiful locations nearby to catch some waves, ride longboards and enjoy the beach. Suitable place for children, teenagers and adults.

We stayed 5 days and I enjoyed every second of it.

This is the place to stay in Aptos!!!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful beachside view with access to everything you need in the condo for a beautiful stay. Washer dryer sink kitchen and a nice grill on the balcony! Weather was perfect and the people there were so kind! Close to boardwalk which is a nice tourist attraction and a short drive away from other beaches. If I ever make it back to Aptos I'm definitely looking to stay here again.
