Year Purchased: 1989
About the owner: We live in Aptos since 1989. Our house has just recently been updated to a Mediterranean style home with an attached one-bedroom unit downstairs. We love biking, hiking, and go wine tastings. We have 2 grown children currently in college. David is a teacher at a community college and I'm a Realtor in Santa Cruz county. We are involved in our church home at Twin Lakes Church in Aptos.
Why the Owner Chose Aptos, CA, USA:
The town of Aptos is a secret treasure that not many people know about; it is 'the suburbanite' of Santa Cruz County. The natural beauty is enveloped with tree lines and seascapes. One can meander through town on feet and bikes if they want to feast their eyes with interesting cottages and bungalows. Walking to the beach is an easy 5-minute walk down the hill and grab a cup of coffee at Full of Beans or a bite to eat at Cafe Rio. Walk to the iconic Cement Ship to see otters and dolphins in the right season. While down at the beach you can visit Historic Museum to learn more about about the area of Aptos (an Indian word, which means where two bodies of water meet). In October, there are Art Tour & Wine Festivals throughout the county of Santa Cruz. Go Wine Tasting in the Pleasant Valley of Aptos and in Soquel Hills, which is only 10 minutes either directions from the house. Capitola Village is only 10 minutes for more restaurants and shops. Watch famous Surf Competition in West Santa Cruz and walk on the gorgeous West Cliff and East Cliff Dr. to drink in the beautiful the sunset and seascapes. Monterey and Carmel cities are a mere 35-minute drive south of Aptos.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
We choose this beach home because of the natural beauty of the tree lines and the ocean views, quaint town and the proximity to the beach and restaurants and golf course/tennis club. We are part of the Monterey Bay Sanctuary Hiking, biking and beaches are only 5 minutes away.
