About the Property

Unobstructed Panoramic View Of The Entire Monterey Bay, From S.C. To Monterey.

In a great neighborhood. Great for long walks, there are nearby hiking trails to the ocean. Bikes are available for your use. Access to beach is 6 blocks away, on 'Beachgate Way'. This room has all the amenities for your comfort. Close to everything. The studio has its own private entrance, and its own private covered porch, with lots of seating overlooking the ocean. Small outdoor kitchenette with well stocked refrigerator, oven, microwave, coffeemaker, hotplate, toaster, blender and sink.

This home has been on the Annual Symphony League Home Tour two times, and has been in the local newspaper, as the 'Fanti-Sea House'. Aptos is an idyllic beach community with a small-town feel and diverse population. Nestled amongst miles of pristine beaches, rolling hills, towering redwood trees, and strawberry fields, the community sets the scene for an extraordinary lifestyle. Situated on Monterey Bay's northern coast, Santa Cruz/Aptos homes are found within a progressive resort community. The area is alive with families, artists, local business owners, surfers, students, and visitors who return year after year. Amazing views from Monterey to Capitola. There are no better views in Santa Cruz. A private massage by a professional can be arranged. A dog may be allowed for an additional fee. Not suitable for parties. Security deposit may be withheld. If possible, email or text host an hour before arrival.

Please e-mail us a bit about yourself when you first inquire about the accommodations..... either before or at the time you book. Although the studio is very private, we like to know who will be sharing our space, so we ask quests to share a little bit about themselves before they make a reservation. Check In is 3:00pm Check Out is 11:00am. $20. an hour for late check outs. Be sure and check out the video! It is located on the main picture, top left. A few days prior to check in let host know around what time you will be arriving. If possible, an hour or less email to confirm when arriving. Park in front of the house on the street, as close as you can. Push gate open in the middle towards the house. Go to the right into the backyard, all the way to the end. I will leave the studio key in the door for you. Contact host will any questions. Enjoy!
