This Manor was built in 1922 and it is currently surrounded by newer large homes and is a short 3 to 4-min walk to one of the area’s largest sandy beaches with fire rings for beach bonfires. The Tudor supplies free firewood for both the fireplaces and the beach bonfires. There are also a couple of nice delis for a short walk to get ice cream cones, a fine restaurant called Cafe Rio and a small corner grocery store. One advantage of being this short distance to the ocean, it that your guests can be assured of a quiet nights sleep, vs listening to the crash of the waves all night long.
It is also next to Seacliff State beach Park with the famous wharf and cement ship which is often used by sea life.

More of our friends have vacation homes in the area can accommodate additional guests all within easy walk to the Rio Del Mar beach.
The Owner 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.
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!
This house was like an interesting maze to explore. There is plenty of room to break away from a group for personal time and amazing group areas to hang out and have a great time.
Everyone that went really loved staying there.
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.

Our group of 11 adults, 4 toddlers and a baby stayed at Tudor Rose for a week. It is an excellent property in a convenient location, a short walk to the beach and beach cafes. The rooms are smaller than they appear in the pictures, and "9 bedrooms" is a bit of an exaggeration; one is a hallway and one is the living room. The kitchen and dining room are smallish for such a large group as ours.
The home in Aptos was everything the pictures said it was. The owners were very understanding when we had a few hic ups along the way. Everything worked out and we thank the owners for hanging in there. The home was warm and inviting, not fancy, but very homey we loved all the twist and turns. Our time there was wonderful, and we will rent it again if the family is gathering in mass. We were in Santa Cruz to celebrate the passing of our mother, the home would have got her approval.
We had a group of 12 ladies hold a reunion at Tudor Rose Manor for an amazing weekend of catching up after 28 years, crafting, great homemade meals and walks on the beach. There were plenty of accommodations to hold all of us comfortably and we intend to hold future reunions here. Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful home with us.
We enjoyed the location and definitely fit four families and large number of people. Pricing was high to the expectations of the manor experience.
The home was cluttered with old things.
The house has a distinct odor like a wet dog which was was the biggest distractor.
This home is all about family & friends reunions. Everyone will enjoy the short and level walk 3+ minute walk to a 7-mi long sandy beach and an adjoining state park (Seacliff). This area also has a deli with ice cream cones, gourmet coffee and daily fresh BBQ chicken & tri-tips. There is also a wonderful seafood restaurant, the Cafe Rio, in the same area near the beach. The Village of Capitola with over a dozen restaurants, unique shops, sandy beach, festivals and art shows is a nearby delight. Don't miss the Monterey Bay Aquarium, Big Basin State Park (1st Calif. St Park) the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk and Wharf with the best wooden roller coaster still surviving on the West Coast. Enjoy the Free Friday night concerts with many famous band play 2-times on every Friday during Summer. The fun Mystery Spot, berry picking farms, many farmer's markets with the best fresh produce tastings available are just some of the great things to do besides the beaches. Don't miss the new River Walk along the San Lorenzo river.
