Welcome to Seascape
An easy-going escape for a relaxed beach lifestyle.
Located about nine miles south of Santa Cruz, Seaside is an exclusive resort-style beach neighborhood in Aptos. It’s one of six small villages that form Aptos, with a combined population of over 24,000, but you’ll enjoy a quiet, close-knit community in Seascape.
Seascape, built in the 1960s, lies between Capitola and the Pajaro River. It is the largest privately owned single development project in Aptos as it stretches along 45 acres of coastal bluffs.
Though built in the 1960s, the first condominiums in Aptos weren’t constructed until the 1990s. Each condominium is individually owned, providing the community with a laid-back ambiance and a sense of privacy. Seascape is the perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of a busy life. It’s considered an easy-going beach lifestyle ideal for retirees and families. It offers family-friendly activities that include parks and open green spaces.
