We had been looking for a family reunion home and just fell in love with this great Tudor style english manor. It has been the place for many anniversary and 80th birthday parties for lots of great guests. Come celebrate your special occassion with your family and friends. More of our friends have vacation homes in the area can accommodate additional guests all within easy walk to the Rio Del Mar beach.

Buck or Judith purchased this house in 2004

Being that the Manor was just a short and level 3-4 minute stroll to the 7-mile sandy beach was one of the main attractions of this home. The fact that there were no other homes that could handle up to 22 guests was another major factor.

One of the largest homes near the large sandy Rio del Mar beach and the Seacliff Beach State Park with its famous wharf out to a cement ship called the Palo Alto.

12 adults and 10 kids. We had great fun with the extended family (a group of 6 families) Had long walks on the beach and kids had a blast building complicated sand structures on the beach and roaring fies at night. We enjoyed staying in this house wall its amentias as well and its close proximity to the beach. We had a fantastic time celebrating the 25th anniversary of members of our adopted family and made wonderful memories. We are about to leave but we already cannot wait for another chance to stay her.

The house was a little more worn looking than the pictures portrayed. On the other hand it accommodated our large family very well. We had a wonderful time. The beach was close enough to meet our needs, due to the time of year we did not use the backyard. The bicycles came into use.. We loved the cozy kitchen.We would recommend this home to others and have already.
Recommended for:  Tourists without a Car, Sightseeing, Families with Teenagers, Families with Young Children
Owner's Response: The Tudor has just been remodeled and updated, so I am sure that all guests will be comfortable. Thanks

Thank you for sharing your lovely house with us for our family reunion. It was great having the beach so close! The weather was great and my fold out bed was super comfortable. The hot tub was very nice. The dolphins and seals and sand crabs were great and we took tons of seaweed home to fertilize our garden. We found some nice beach glass. The humming birds were also nice. Thanks!
