Steps to the beach

  • 5 of 5
My family and I have been renting beach houses for the past 30 years. This house is by far our favorite. Just steps to the ocean, close to Santa Cruz, close to Carmel and one of our favorite beaches. The house is beautifully furnished and comfortable all at the same time.
We enjoyed the spa after a day at the beach. Our children and grandson enjoyed exploring the neighborhood. Joe was very friendly. Especially loved the fresh orchids.

Great Family Stay

  • 5 of 5
Stayed here for son's graduation from UCSC with my parents and younger son. Great space for different interests and lots of room. Very Well maintained and great views. My sons loved easy access to beach and surf boards and other beach equipment provided. Fresh flowers on arrival was a great touch. Owner very helpful and responsive. Would definitely recommend and hope to come back again soon. Excellent value.

Would love to move here!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here the week of July 4th, 2013. All I can say is it was absolutely perfect! The house was clean and tastefully decorated. There was plenty of space for the five of us. We enjoyed sitting out on the wrap-around balcony to soak-up the beach weather, to watch the sunsets and grill dinner. The jacuzzi was an added bonus. We spent most of our time at the beach which is stones throw away. The beach provided us miles of scenic walking while the kids looked for shells and sea glass. The railroad tracks, which are not in use anymore, became a trail for us to see the quiet charming neighborhood. There is plenty to do in the area also. We took the kids to the Roaring Camp Railroads to ride the train through the redwoods, to the Santa Cruz boardwalk and down to beautiful Monterey, all of which is a short drive away. We definitely plan of staying here again! A week did not seem long enough!

Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We are staying on the Oregon Coast this summer--but while looking at rental homes this year--it brought us back to the wonderful memories and family time we had at Joe's beautiful beach house on Manresa Beach. Everyday of our stay last summer created wonderful memories. We spent countless hours sitting on the deck enjoying the sunset views while sampling some of Santa Cruzs' fine wines. The beach was so close and tranquil. We had several bonfires on Manresa Beach. Our two boys rented wet-suits and boogie boards to play in the the coastal waves. I would recommnend this home to anyone or group who wants some real down time in a beautiful setting in a beautiful and relaxing home fully-eqipped with all the ameneties for a perfect vacation. The hot tub was the icing on the cake for us and we enjoyed it everyday and evening. Thanks again Joe for helping to create a wonderful family vacation for us.

A great stay with our kids, felt like home

  • 5 of 5
Comming from Switzerland and after touring the west coast we were looking for a calm confortable place to rest and enjoy life. We found a spacious house very clean and fully equipped. The view to the beach is great, and hearing the waves breaking from the balkony makes your vacation perfect. I just can recommend this place!
