The living room features a gas fireplace and a queen sofa sleeper; the family room has a bar with wine fridge, large sectional sofa and a 55" LED flat screen HDTV.

The garage is stocked with beach chairs, ice chests and a beach wagon to roll down to the beach.

Aptos and the surrounding areas have something for everyone! Golf, the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, shopping and dining, wine tasting, hiking, surfing, fishing, biking and much much more!

Our home sits on the hillside and is on different levels requiring stairs inside and outside of the home. Because of the height of the balcony and the number of stairs, the house may not be suitable for very small children or for individuals who have trouble with stairs.

About Susan Johnston

We love to golf, take long walks and go to the beach to enjoy the views. We are busy professionals who enjoy time to just relax. We have been traveling to the Aptos area with our families for years. Summers in the sand, afternoons on the golf course and long walks along the beach from Seacliff State Beach to the Cement Ship to Rio del Mar to Seascape. We are glad to be able to share wonderful memories and experiences with your family and friends as well.

Susan Johnston purchased this house in 2014

Why Susan Johnston chose Central Coast

Over the years we have stayed in many different parts of the region - from Santa Cruz to Monterey - and settled on this property for a variety of reasons. We love the quiet, charm of the neighborhood, the short walk to the beach, being close to the golf course and proximity to some of our favorite coastal locations.

What makes this house unique

The home has three decks and an amazing backyard which backs up to a coastal forest on the hillside of Seascape golf course. The golf course can be viewed from the top deck. The home is quiet, private and a perfect place for relaxation.

It was well suited for our family.

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for Thanksgiving because it was close to our daughter's place and large enough for our ourselves, our 2 other grown children and grandchildren to stay over for the holiday. We especially liked the short walk to the beach, the backyard where the grandkids could play, the living room for quiet adult time and the family room for the big tv and toys. We wish the kitchen was bigger but it was adequate and we were able to "spill over" into the dining room with the use of a folding table for extra food preparation space. It is on the "use this again" list for next year.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean, comfortable and has natural light. It was perfect for the groom's family to stay for a wedding weekend. The garage was clear for parking 2 cars with a 2-car driveway. The neighborhood was quiet. Homeowners are friendly and were very accessible (thank you!). Easy cleanup. We would definitely stay again. Thank you so much.

Beautiful Beach Get a Way

  • 5 of 5

The home is very beautifully decorated and spacious and just minutes away from the beach. We looked forward to our daily walk through the darling neighborhood, down the beach path and onto the beach. We spent 6 wonderful days relaxing and enjoying the quiet and casual beach town. The Summer Olympics were going on, so the large flat screen TV was on more than normal. We cooked almost all our meals in and found the kitchen to be easy to use. The beds were comfortable and there was plenty of storage. There is also some amazing hikes in The Forest of Nicene Marks which is a short drive from the house and of course Santa Cruz and Capitola are close by. We especially enjoyed watching the family of deer visit every morning.

Great Place in a Great Setting

  • 4 of 5

Had a great 40th Birthday at the property. Enough bedrooms (3) for a small group with a little extra room in the backyard for more people to swing by. It was a little too spread out for kids (hard to keep an eye on them) but was very relaxing. Would stay there again in a second!

Great for families with kids ages 5 and up!

  • 4 of 5

The home was nicely decorated, comfortable, and kept clean. One is able to spend time inside and outside of the home. The terraced backyard was an adventure for the kids, ages 6 - 12. Great location for exploring all of the Monterey Bay. We would love to stay here again.

Fun spot/within walking distance from Hidden Beach

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay - the home was comfortable & in a lovely neighborhood. We enjoyed watching the deer from the back deck. Hidden Beach is our favorite spot & we could walk there in about 15 minutes. The kitchen was well stocked & we loved the big dining table. We also used the barbecue & fire pit in the beautiful backyard. Thanks, Susan for a delightful stay!
