Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: Don and Ginger love the ocean and enjoy spending as much time as possible in Rio del Mar. The seasons are remarkable here - and the wildlife we see is amazing! Pelicans soar over the deck daily en route from their favorite fish stop and dolphins regularly travel directly in front of our place.... at a further distance we also see whales It's such a joy!

Why the Owner Chose Aptos, CA, USA:
We fell in love with the views! We call our home 'The Memaids Perch'. As soon as we purchased it, we remodeled the home completely in a casual Country French style featuring mermaids throughout. Our five year old granddaughter's love of mermaids was the inspiration and the result is a blissful, relaxing yet sophisticated home with a lovely spirit of whimsy! We never take life too seriously at the beach!

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
The views are amazing - especially when brown pelicans are diving for fish dinner just outside or dolphin pods are grazing. Even watch the whales migrate just off shore. Whether sipping wine on the deck, snuggling by the fireplace, or just kicking back and watching TV or listening to music, the sounds of the ocean are always there reminding you to relax, let go and enjoy it all! Rio del Mar beach is family friendly with evening fires allowed - perfect for smores!
