Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We know that your vacation is important to you and so we do our best to insure that you find our home to be a pleasant place to enjoy local attractions, ocean beaches, and your time to relax and unwind away from the everyday. ==================================== My wife and I met in Cambridge, MA almost 30 years ago. We moved from the east coast Bay Area to the west coast two years later. ==================================== Casa Mare is our second home. We spend weekends (sometimes long ones since we love it here so much more than the hectic Silicon Valley) in the upstairs apartment. Our kids are grown so it’s just the two of us. We are available to answer any questions and to share our favorite places to visit and eat at. ==================================== Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. I look forward to answering any and all questions you may have. We hope that we get an opportunity to host your family and have you and yours enjoy all that the area has to offer.

Why the Owner Chose Aptos, CA, USA:
Location! Location! Location! ==================================== Both being scientist, we used a scientific approach, the Radar app, in selecting the warmest, least foggy beach community. We’re surprised to discover that often there is a 15 to 20 degrees difference with in less than 10 miles. We chose our home because of proximity to the beach and it’s unique architecture.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house architecture provides total privacy; with guest having an exclusive use of the back yard, outdoor shower and BBQ. ==================================== We love to travel and to stay in vacation rentals, especially when traveling with our family or friends. For the past 25+ years we have rented over 100 places all over US and Europe and have used this experience in setting up our home. We furnished it with all the things that we’ve enjoyed and appreciated: tourist information, guide books, lots of books and games for adults and kids, cooks kitchen, extra towels and linens, and of cause everything one would need for the beach, even kites. Many guests comment on our location and how well-equipped our home is.
