Beach House Users’ Guide v0.71



Our beach place is directly adjacent to Manresa State Beach, about seven miles south of Santa Cruz.  It is less than a mile from the tiny beach town of La Selva Beach and is about two miles from the Seascape Resort.  Some people refer to the whole area loosely as “Aptos,” but we are not technically in Aptos.  We are about 90 minutes away from San Francisco, depending on traffic over Highway 17.


The place is a 1650 square foot, 3BR/2.5BA three-story condo in the Oceanview / Place de Mer development.  We completely rebuilt it in 2010.    It was originally built in the 60s, before the establishment of the California Coastal Commission, and, therefore, is able to be right on the sand.

This guide is intended to give an overview of the place and provide some help with how to operate the home automation and A/V systems in the house (which Cindy claims are too complicated).
