Where you’ll be

Aptos, California, United States

The picturesque town of Aptos is in an unincorporated area of Santa Cruz County. It is a home to historic Aptos Village, and the gateway to the Forest of Nisene Marks State Park.

Redwoods and the sea in one idyllic setting!

Rio Del Mar means “River to the Sea” in Spanish, and was coined simply as a catchy-sounding name for a new subdivision in coastal Aptos. The name has no significance beyond that. The neighborhood is popular for a number of reasons, not least of which are a number of beaches close by.

The area is known for fog, although in truth the number of foggy days is not that great, and when there is fog, it often burns off by late morning or early afternoon, leading to warm and sunny days spring through fall. Winters are normally wet, with the heaviest rainfall occurring between October and March.

The house is located in a quiet family neighborhood. You can often spot deers in the back yard and wonder at birds from the deck.
