Save time by skipping the long line and using the member entrance! Just 50 steps from the front door is the famous Beachgate Path where you can take a leisurely walk to Seacliff Beach, with miles of sand, picnic tables and esplanade. Walk down a very pictures Beachgate path or, if you have too many beach things, drive 0.2mi and use provided California State Park pass for a free access and parking. Seacliff beach is one of the most beautiful beaches in the area. It is wide, 19+ miles long, and in low tide you can walk 1.5 mi to Capitola. Spend quiet weekdays swimming, boogie boarding and surfing with just the dolphins, whales, seals and shorebirds to keep you company. This is a great location for visiting Monterey, Carmel, Capitola, Santa Cruz, 17 Mile Drive or just relaxing on the beach. You are just a short drive to numerous attractions: famous Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, Gizdich Ranch for berry picking in Watsonville, over 30 wineries to taste award winning wines, Capitola village for shopping or dining on the sand, Moss Landing for some kayaking or whale watching, or Monterey Bay Aquarium. Santa Cruz county has great restaurants with the beach feel, from Stagnaros on the Wharf, Crows Nest on the beach, Sea Harvest Fish Market & Restaurant in Moss Landing, Cafe Sparrow and Cafe Cruz. CasaMareAptos is a duplex. The upstairs apartment is never rented; it's our second home and we, a semi-retired couple, use it on weekends. The house architecture provides total privacy; with guest having an exclusive use of the downstairs, back/side yards, outdoor shower and the BBQ, 2 car driveway. The downstairs apartment has a separate entrance through the private side yard.More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and much appreciated that the house had all the supplies/amenities we needed to cook, play at the beach, and make ourselves at home.

Amazing spot. Close to so many fun kids activities. The beach is less than a five minute walk away. Would love to stay again.

Interaction with guests
We know that your vacation is important to you and so we do our best to insure that you find our home to be a pleasant place to enjoy local attractions, ocean beaches, and your time to relax and unwind away from the everyday. Casa Mare is our second home. We spend weekends (sometimes long ones since we love it here so much more than the hectic Silicon Valley) in the upstairs apartment. Our kids are grown so it’s just the two of us. We are available to answer any questions and to share our favorite places to visit and eat at. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. We hope that we get an opportunity to host your family and have you and yours enjoy all that the area has to offer.

About the neighbourhood
Around the corner to the neighborhood beach access path. See the pelicans and seals on the famous cement ship Palo Alto. We think Seacliff beach is the best beach in the area. Stays sunny most of the time, even when the rest of the coast is foggy. Plenty of things to do. Swim with seals. Watch whales, dolphins, and sea otters frolic in the water. Jog south 10+ miles to Pajaro Dunes or north ~1mi to Pot Belly and New Brighton beaches. Walk to Capitola in low tide (1.5mi). Play volleyball, fish, have a pick nick or a bbq, fly a kite (we have 2 for guests to use), build a sand castle (lots of sand toys), read a book, or just have a nap. We are about a mile and a half from Seascape golf course, a few miles from the Pasatiempo course, and about 40 minutes from the famous Pebble Beach golf c...
