See a brief introductory video about Aptos Knoll (prepared for the Resident-Owned Parks meeting held in our clubhouse on 11/4/23.)
Aptos Knoll Mobilehome Park is a resident-owned senior (55+) mobilehome park owned by Aptos Knoll Mobilehome Owners Association (AKMOA). AKMOA is incorporated under California law as a non-profit mutual-benefit corporation. There are 75 homes, whose owners are members of the Association.
The Park is situated on a knoll surrounded by redwood groves in the community of Aptos, California. In addition to common areas of landscaping, grassy areas, streets and walkways, there is a clubhouse with large meeting room, library, office, kitchen, game room and restrooms. A pool and hot tub are adjacent to the clubhouse. (See some photos)
There are three streets in the park — Oak Shadows Lane, Knollwood Drive, and Trailwood Way — with an entrance off of Trout Gulch Road in Aptos. The Aptos Post Office is two blocks away, and plenty of shopping is nearby along Soquel Drive. Construction of the nearby Aptos Village shopping and residential center is underway.
Water, weekly garbage pickup, staff, and park maintenance expenses are included in residents’ monthly fees. Individual electricity, gas, phone, TV, and Internet utilities expenses are the responsibility of individual homeowners.
Park governance is by a seven-member Board of Directors. The Board manages park operation in accordance with AKMOA’s Bylaws and Rules and Regulations. The Board meets monthly on the second Thursday. The annual meeting of the membership with elections is held on the last Saturday in January of each year.
