The space
Approximately 50 yards below the main house on the property, the cottage offers some nice privacy. For those who love the look and sound of the ocean, this is THE spot. There are four steps from the driveway down to the paved path to the cottage, one step into the cottage, and no steps within the cottage. Note: We have one California King Bed and prefer one or two quiet guests which works best with our neighbors and the cottage plumbing.

Where you’ll be

Aptos, California, United States

The property is in a residential neighborhood of mostly elderly folks. The nearest grocery store, Deluxe Foods, is fantastic (gourmet, with sandwich bar, hot food bar, salad bar, sushi counter and a nice selection of beer and wine) and is right off Hwy. 1 as you head towards the cottage. There is a liquor store next door. The nearest beach access is Hidden Beach, about a 3 minute drive or under a 10 minute walk.
