The perfect family vacation home!home!

  • 5 of 5
Our family has rented this house many times. The location is perfect and the home is absolutely fantastic! It is located on a quiet court within a very nice neighborhood. The home has always been clean and very comfortable. Also the owner and the managers are all a pleasure to work with. We love to get up early and walk across the street with our surfboards. We surf for a few hours then come back and relax in the private backyard with the pool and hot tub. We wouldn't want to stay anywhere else. It is the perfect Santa Cruz home for any family to enjoy the boundless activities of this amazing area.

Amazing house! Great location. Wonderful backyard. Feels like you are on a tropical trip!

  • 5 of 5
This house is perfect for your beach getaway. It is walking distance to the boardwalk and multiple beaches. The light house and BEAUTIFUL westcliff are just steps away. This house is tucked away on a nice, quiet court. The backyard is perfect for BBQs, swims in the pool and relaxing in the hot tub. Perfect for families or for larger groups trying to get away and TOTALLY relax. The backyard has gorgeous plants that really make you feel like you are on a tropical trip. House is very clean and has everything you need for your trip. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

My family, kids and grandkids enjoyed Rich's home over a beautiful weekend in Santa Cruz. There were 6 of us. The home is very comfortable with excellent bedding, linens and art work. The front sitting room was our favorite. The ocean is close but beach, boardwalk and pier are further. Only negative was outback. Pool was too cold to swim and hottub was a disaster. Rich said he will work to fix it up. The lounging area up top of the house was very nice for views.

Beautiful house, ideal location

  • 5 of 5
My family rented this house with another family for 4 nights in August 2013 and it was absolutely perfect. The house itself is beautiful, well equipped, and has a great backyard/pool. Even better, though, is the location. It's one block away from the ocean, and a 5-10 minute walk to the wharf/boardwalk. Rich, the owner, was a pleasure to work with. I have every intention of renting this house again - as soon as I am lucky enough to go back to Santa Cruz!

Great House if you Surf

  • 4 of 5
My boys and I, age 14 and 15, stayed in the house for ten days in August. The location is great and very convenient to surf spots, bike trails, the wharf and amusement park. We walked and rode our bikes everywhere! The house is very pretty, all white, and nicely renovated. The pool and hot tub were wonderful for us after surfing, but as an FYI, the pool is always partially shaded and only feels warm after you have been in the cold ocean. The roof top deck was great in the evenings for sunset. The beach towels and linens provided were very nice, and the kitchen stove, sink and fridge are very high end, but glassware and cookware was minimal. There were no wine glasses :(


A couple of things about the neighborhood: The house next door is a rental (there are actually quite a few in that immediate area) and on our last weekend a VERY large group of fraternity brothers rented the house. Needless to say, they stayed up all night drinking, talking loudly, grilling at 5AM and an actual fight broke out one afternoon as the boys and I were returning from a bike ride. The driveway is shared, and the small bedroom is on that side of the house, making it very loud for whomever has that room. Also, the house two doors down, not a rental, has recently been court ordered by the City of Santa Cruz for the residents to stop maintaining a drug house.

All in all we had a good stay. I would be careful with young children, or anyone who may be offended or frightened by party behavior, and accept that you may have less than desirable neighbors. We stayed busy surfing, riding bikes, and hiking, so were not at the house very much.

Rich was great to work with, and booking was simple and direct. Make sure to get the tax rate and cleaning fees upfront, they were a lot higher than I expected.

Owner's Response: This was an interesting guest. She wanted to come back, but I have better guests and options to rent to. The "party" next door only lasted about on hour, as I have my property manager available to monitor such things. She lives 2 doors down, has lived on the street for over 20 years, and has raised 3 children. She would never have allowed this to go on all night.
Pool is solar heated, it stays about 85 degrees during the summer, but one must cover it each evening, as the maritime air will cool it down. Apparently this guest did not cover the pool.
The house 2 doors down has a new owner as of March 2013. She is wonderful, has lived on this street before, and wanted to come back!! Manor Place is a quiet, family orientated neighborhood.
