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.
What makes this Apartment unique

There are beautiful grounds surrounding the home, Pool area and outdoor dining available.

Wow, we loved our stay! This guesthouse is beautiful and comfortable, a complete get away. The setting is so peaceful you feel like you can really unwind, but its still close to all amenities and the family we have in town. The views are amazing out of every window, we had a 360 degree view of 4th. of July fireworks. We will definitely return!
Beautiful and comfortable coach house with great views. We very much enjoyed our stay here in late May, 2018. The coach house is perfect for a non-couple with 2 queen beds and a very nice full bath. Fully equipped kitchen and nice appliances. The decor is very updated and the furniture is comfortable. Great location between Santa Cruz and Monterey. John was not at home the days we were there, but there was someone else at the house to help us if we needed anything. We really didn’t need anything at all, though. We were able to use his pool one day, which is in his beautiful, private backyard with gorgeous gardens and comfortable chaises. I know this is not always available but if you ask John he will accommodate you if possible. Just an FYI, if you want to use the laundry facilities, the door to the laundry is locked with a different key so you will need him to open it for you. I have nothing bad to say about this unit. Highly recommend.
Loved theTuscan Carriage House with Ocean View
Martha and I loved staying at your Carriage House, it was everything we hoped for and more. Beds are comfy, living room is perfect for sharing, kitchen works. In fact we enjoyed our stay so much we would like to reserve this mini villa in late October when we will be back in Aptos for another retreat. If this is possible please let me know. I'm leaving in a couple hours for my trek to Tassajara and will be back in communication on 5/30. Let's catch up then. Hope your travels to and around Spain (?) were wonderful.
Thank you Marsha just let me know...
This property is in a wonderful location. John is a very kind and accommodating host. The guesthouse itself had everything we needed.
We enjoyed our stay. The house was perfect, the view was phenomenal, the owner very welcoming. This trip was to celebrate my husband's 70th birthday and was a great success. We will be recommending this property to friends and family!
Beautiful peaceful setting
This is an amazing property. Very immaculate, tranquil and close to many beautiful places or relax in this cute quest cottage. We were fortunate to find this place and it was nicer than in the photos. We are also lucky that the owner rents out such a gem next to his own private home. We highly recommend this unit for the picky person who wants a nice place to stay in an upscale neighborhood.
