SECRET GARDEN SANCTUARY - Rio Del Mar

Located in: Aptos
The Secret Garden is a loft-style apartment that occupies the entire bottom floor of a huge, 3-Story Ocean View Home in the quiet, safe neighborhood of Rio Del Mar. It is less than a mile to Hidden Beach Park and is on the ridge above Seascape Golf Course It is fully self-contained with a private entrance. Guests are welcome to spend time on the very top deck Common Area where the owner lives.

Super Clean Modern Design, this bright, wide-open 950 square foot Artistic Space spills out onto a Huge Slate Patio surrounded by Lush Tropical Gardens -- views of the Monterey Bay shimmer in the distance. Wind Chimes ring in the gentle ocean breezes and the Cherry Plum Trees are alive with hungry birds; fat squirrels bounce from limb to limb. At dusk, romantic white lights twinkle in the canopy above.

Wall to Wall Travertine, Vibrant Art, Splendid Design and Attention to Detail make this Wonderful Space visually dramatic yet supremely functional with all of the creature comforts The Custom Bathroom is Palatial -- 200+ square foot Creative Layout with On-Demand Hot Water. The Simple and Beautiful Kitchenette and Well Stocked Pantry have everything you need and more. There is a Gas Grill on the Patio for BBQ. Like the best hotels, Fluffy Towels, Good Linens and Quality Sundries are provided.

The Expansive Deck 30 feet above has sweeping views of the Sleepy Seaside Community, the Blue Pacific and Monterey in the Distance. It is the "Common Area" of the home and you may meet me when I'm there. (I am out and about most of the time.) The Sunsets are amazing and the sounds of waves carry on the wind. Bring up your coffee in the morning and soak up the sunshine amidst the tree tops.

Having worked as a Director in the High End Hotel Industry, the space was inspired by my travels to Five Star Resorts around the world -- stealing their Best Practices. This Gorgeous Custom Loft-Style Apartment is ideal for the discerning traveler. It is perfect for those seeking a quality experience in a peaceful, private setting.

EVERY AMENITY YOU COULD NEED OR WANT, INCLUDING BREAKFAST ITEMS, WILL BE PROVIDED. Just show up, rest and relax.


AN EXPERIENCE TO REMEMBER...

Upon your arrival, you will be welcomed with a Bottle of Wine or Sparkling Juice which you can enjoy lounging on the Dreamy Garden Patio, in your Lovely Room or Up Above on the Ocean View Deck.

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day! Start each day with our Yummy Greek Yogurt, Bagels, Muffins, Cereal or Organic Eggs. French Press Coffee / Keurig and Specialty Teas. Organic Whole Milk & OJ are always provided.

YOU ARE WELCOME TO BORROW MY MONTEREY BAY AQUARIUM GUEST PASSES to take in this Spectacular Experience. Go VIP -- directly to the front of the lines to the "Member's Window"!

Kick Back and enjoy the large HDTV with Home Theater, Netflix, Pandora, DVDs, WIFI. Or, you can unplug and go Old School Low-Tech with Board Games, Backgammon, Playing Cards, Reading in the Garden.

Walk for miles along the best beaches in the county, clean and uncrowded, less than a mile away as the Crow Flies. Go at low tide and collect piles of Sand Dollars for souvenirs. Paddle Kayaks at Elkhorn Slough Wildlife Sanctuary in Moss Landing. Or take a Beautifully Civilized Eco-Tour with Whisper Charters to see Birds, Otters and Sea Lions up close. On Saturday Mornings, stroll with the locals at the Cabrillo College Farmers Market. Seascape Golf Club and the Resort are just down the street. Take a ride on the Big Dipper at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. Sip Santa Cruz Mountain Appellations at Local Wineries. Visit the Redwoods at Big Basin State Park. Take the spectacular drive down the Pacific Coast Highway to Big Sur for a tour you will remember forever. Stop in Cute Little Carmel by the Sea for dinner on your way back home.

Or just relax in The Garden and do nothing at all...

"Magical... Dream-Like.... Sweet... Perfect... Peaceful... Soothing.... Amazing.... Comforting.... Romantic... Smart Design... A Beautiful Refuge.... Mystical Jungle..." These are just some of the words my Wonderful Guests have used to describe the SECRET GARDEN SANCTUARY since we began welcoming visitors.

Vacations should be Well Lived.

SORRY, NO PETS -- Have them. Love them. But the apartment is an animal-free zone.
