About the Property
House, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
This unique home is known in the area as the “Boat House”, and once you see the photos, you will certainly understand why! You will definitely want to take photos and/or videos to record your precious memories of this vacation…
From this fantastic home, you have breathtaking ocean views from almost every room in the house, from the kitchen, the dining room, the living room, both bedrooms, even the guest bathroom. The ocean is literally your backyard; just 4 steps & you are on the sand. And the sunrises and sunsets are simply picture perfect!
This house is a fully furnished two story home with 2 bedrooms, 2 1/2 bathrooms. The wonderful kitchen has a gas stove and all the other things, including lots of counter space, you need to prepare your meals. (or if you don’t want to cook, there are plenty of wonderful restaurants in the area!) Comfortable & inviting, this house sleeps 4- 6 (master bedroom with double bed, guest bedroom with twin beds, and a queen size air bed) The master bedroom has a wonderful carved wood bed & dresser, with an adjoining bathroom. Down the hall is the guest bathroom with its Jacuzzi tub and a great view of the ocean. At the end of the hall is the guest bedroom. It has two twin beds and a small deck, with a ship’s wheel.
Downstairs there is plenty of room to set up the air bed, and there is a ½ bathroom next to the living room. For those warm, lazy days there is a deck just outside the living room so you can gaze down upon the sandy beach. And for those quiet, relaxing times, there is the electric fireplace in the living room. There are also two TVs & a DVD player for the times when you are not playing in the water or sunbathing in your “backyard”. The parking is private and secluded (not street parking).
Within a few minute walking distance are the Café Rio, the Pixie Deli, Full of Beans at the Beach, and the Rio Market. Another easy walk is to the SS Palo Alto, the famous cement ship, which was built at the end of WWI. A few miles away is the Rancho del Mar Shopping Center, which has, to name just a few places, Safeway, Aptos Theater, Baskin Robbins, & Aptos Jewelers. Across the street are such places as “Sushi on the Run”, a laundry mat, Ferrells’ Donuts, & Taco Bell. For those golf lovers, the Seascape Resort Golf Course is only a couple of miles away. Close by are the DeLaveaga Golf Course & the Pasatiempo Golf Club.
This house is an ideal location in Santa Cruz County. Beside its proximity to the beach, other near-by attractions include the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, Roaring Camp, Mystery Spot, Monterey (the Monterey Bay Aquarium is a “must”), Carmel-by-the-Sea, San Francisco, & San Jose. You can travel from the sandy beaches to the redwoods in the mountains in just a matter of minutes. There is simply something for everyone!
Please inquire early as this home is only available for no more than 30 days per year. Thank You!

Why the Owner Chose Aptos, CA, USA:
Santa Cruz County is beautiful from its sandy beaches to its redwood forests, and Aptos is centrally located. From here, it is easy to travel north to Santa Cruz, Half Moon Bay, or San Francisco or south to Monterey, Carmel, or Big Sur, just to name a few amazing places.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
First & foremost, you are ON the beach, with literally only 4 steps before you hit the sand! No fighting traffic or difficulties in finding a parking spot. For those times you don't feel like 'going' to the beach, you can still see it from almost every room in the house. You can sit outside on the deck, or just gaze thru almost any window. There are only a handful of homes in all of Santa Cruz County that are located on the beach like this home. Most homes are on bluffs or across the street from a beach. This is the only home in this county that we know of that is shaped like a boat on the outside and then carries that theme thruout the inside, too. This home is easy to get to, only a few miles from the freeway. The area is beautiful & quiet, but yet close enough to stores, restaurants, attractions, etc. So many different things to do (or not to do, your choice) that everyone should be quite happy….
