Why John Della Penna chose Aptos
I take pride in offering an truly special guest experience. This is a very special area, Aptos is a small Village on the Monterey Bay, originally a logging town with a train station where the historic Bayview Hotel is located. Our property is a tuscan style Villa with beautiful grounds, very quiet and private. it offers sweeping views of the Monterey Bay close of the beach, hiking golfing and restaurants.

John is a great host, most accomodating. The grounds are beautiful, and the house is cozy with a kitchen that is ok to cook in.
One of the best places I’ve stayed
Beautifully serene space. Adequate for a roommate & convenient location
Gorgeous and Tranquil
This is a beautiful well furnished guesthouse high above the garage with gorgeous views of Monterey bay and more out every window. It was very clean and comfortable in every way. Thanks again John.

Beautiful property, well equipped.
The guest house above Mr. Della Penna's garage is well laid out, decorated and equipped. Beds were comfortable. Mr. Della Penna supplied basic necessities and some dry goods etc had been left by previous guests.
Very quiet area.You need a car unless you want to rely on Uber etc. Location is a short drive or a long walk from restaurants & shops, and the Aptos beach. Note that a large vehicle would have difficulty navigating the narrow winding road to the property.
Don't miss the wreck of the concrete ship on the beach, it's fascinating. Monterey / Carmel / Pebble Beach are an easy 45 min drive except for when there's an event causing heavier traffic.
The laundry is in the garage, Mr. Della Penna provides access on request.
Overall a very pleasant stay.
Beautiful house! Enjoyed relaxing watching the squirrels chase each other, sipping coffee in the morning fog. Home had everything we needed for a great weekend getaway
Beautiful place and ideally located
Overall a charming place to stay with stunning views. The guest house was well furnished with all of life's necessities for a week's stay. The two bedrooms were very comfortable. Ideally located in the town of Aptos, one could have easy access to stores and the beaches within minutes. The host was very welcoming and helpful. Would definitely stay there again.
