De ruimte
We are currently doing some remodeling of the cottage. The layout will be the same but we are painting and changing things up a bit. New photos will be posted as soon as all the work is completed.

Come experience a peaceful and quiet get-a-way above the fog line in the Aptos mountains with a million dollar view! The cottage overlooks an old apple orchard that is surrounded by majestic redwood trees. Relax on a large private deck overlooking the peaceful valley and soak in the sunshine. Lay around by the pool or swim in a beautiful setting. Wander the grounds. Take a walk along the quiet country road. Whatever you choose to do during your stay, there is something about this peaceful little haven that will sooth your senses.

Due to the heavy storms of the last couple winters, the main county road to our property has damage. There are a few places where the road is slipping into the gulch. Nothing major but part of the road is down to one lane. Stop signs have been put up for safety. You are on the county road for about 3 miles. Once you get to the private road the road is one lane but in better condition than the county road. The 5 mile drive will take you about 15 minutes from Aptos.

***Please read the description and amenities completely before booking your reservation.***

Apple Orchard Cottage is located 5 miles from the historic and quaint little town of Aptos, CA. It is a 15 minute drive from Aptos Village of which 2 miles wind through a lush canopy of trees on a paved, one lane private road. It is 15 minutes from town and the beach. We are out in the country. The drive may be intimidating for those not used to country roads.

Aptos has many restaurants, shopping, coffee shops, Safeway and Rite Aid, CVS as well as 2 natural food stores. Aptos is centrally located to Santa Cruz and Monterey.

The cottage is single level and has close and easy access from parking. The Apple Orchard Cottage, also referred to lovingly as “The Granny Unit”, shares property with our home but has plenty of privacy. Other people live on the property besides us. The cottage and deck are completely private for your use only. You are welcome to wander the grounds. There are many different fruit trees scattered around and when in season you are welcome to partake of the organically grown produce.

Kitchen (full and functional): Gas stove/oven, microwave; refrigerator- full size; coffee pot and coffee bean grinder; toaster. The kitchen is also stocked with an assortment of basic condiments—olive oil, vinegar, sugar, salt & pepper, organic coffee beans and tea. A BBQ is available also. No air conditioner but fans are available.

Bedroom: Comfortable memory foam queen size bed; 100% cotton sheets; full mattress encasement from “Protect A Bed” the ultimate in bedbug and dust mite protection technology. The blanket(s) is either in a cotton duvet cover (or has a cotton sheet over the top) which is washed after each guest. Pillows are double cased. There are plenty of extra blankets and with an assortment of pillows if you want to switch them out.

Bathroom: tiled shower, soap, shampoo and conditioner; hair dryer. No bathtub. The bathroom is off of the bedroom so everybody has to go through the bedroom to use the bathroom. There is one step down into the bathroom.

Living room: Rattan couch and a day bed with trundle (a twin pull-out mattress). 30" HD Flat Screen TV with DVD player and a large variety of DVD's for your viewing pleasure. The TV *might* come in sporadically but cannot be counted on.

Deck-Private: The deck wraps around the front and side of the cottage and has a stunning view. There is a table and chairs under a canopy that allows filtered sun. Also 2 "Zero Gravity" lounge chairs to relax in.

Smoking is NOT permitted INSIDE the cottage; however, it is allowed OUTSIDE on the deck, away from the cottage windows.

The swimming pool on premises is available for use. The water temperature varies throughout the year as it is SUN HEATED ONLY. It reaches 80 degrees in the summer as it has full sun exposure all day! In the off seasons or when there is no sun, it can be chilly and enjoyed by "polar bears". Maybe someday we will have it heated year round. The pool is a shared area but is not used very often, so don't be surprised if you seem to have it all to yourself! Again, the pool is shared with other people and a couple neighbors.

This is paradise for the person who loves wildlife, as in nature not partying. Deer abound. Coyotes and bobcats are frequently seen wondering the property. Wild turkeys come and go. Bunnies frolic around the property most the day. Birds are abundant. Swallows arrive in April, leave in July. About 10 hummingbirds live here year round.

We cherish the quiet and solitude. The Apple Orchard Cottage is truly a rare and peaceful get-away from the hustle and bustle of life. The Cottage is in a country and rural setting but has all amenities needed for comfort, relaxation and enjoyment.

Your hosts live on the property and are near enough should you need anything, yet far enough to ensure your privacy. The property is also shared with a few other people whom you may see wandering around. There is an occupied trailer behind the cottage but does not share any space with the cottage. Also, on the property are a couple of maintenance folks. The lawn guy comes every other week in the afternoon; his work takes about an hour and a half. Our pool company is on site every week. We are in the country (with only a partial rooftop of a neighbor’s house being visible) but we don’t own all the property around us; therefore, you may also hear our neighbors going about their lives.

Cell phone service is sporadic at best with all services but Verizon. Verizon works great most (98%) of the time. There is no land line phone in the cottage.

Wi-Fi wireless can be accessed from the cottage and sometimes from the pool area. The Wi-Fi service accommodates BASIC internet usage only, and is NOT intended for streaming, music, gaming or any other high bandwidth usage. We have installed a booster so service is very good to the cottage for basic internet usage. We are in the mountains so service is not as good or fast as in town. We recommend that you download movies, music, etc. you may want to watch prior to arriving.

I grew up on this ranch. My grandfather came over from Yugoslavia in the early 1900’s and purchased the ranch sometime in the 1940’s. My mom grew up here and so have my daughters who were actually born in the old farmhouse over 20 years ago. My husband, Jay, and I now reside here with our pets and a couple tenants. We raised 5 children and now are at a new place in our lives. The land is very dear to my heart and a very special place. My grandmother claimed that the land has healing powers. The orchard is dying but the trees are still lovely and produce great fruit. We enjoy sharing our little slice of heaven with others.
