About Judith or Buck Hoelscher
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.
Judith or Buck Hoelscher purchased this House in 2004
Why Judith or Buck Hoelscher chose Rio del Mar
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 14 adult guests & up to 8 children under 12, was another major factor.
What makes this House unique
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. The only SwimSpa in a Vacation Rental in the area. The owners enjoy hosting a free Sea Chantey Sing-alongs for guests either in the backyard or at a bonfire at the beach.

Thanksgiving family gathering
Great location, lots of condiments, very comfortable. Could use some cleaning out of some items as nooks and crannies were full.
Overall, a great time in a great spot.
We all had a great time. Location is wonderful. Eating outside as a whole group was so easy with the tables already set up. Lots of bedroom space!
Hi Patricia, Thanks for your nice review and we are happy to extend you and your group a 5% return guest discount on your next stay.
Super place for families and pets
We were made to feel very welcome. We arrived a bit before check in time 3pm and the cleaners were finishing up. They did a wonderful job, coming out to help us with the hot tub the next day. I would recommend!
Hi Joanne, Thanks for your nice review and we are happy to extend you and your group a 5% return guest discount on your next stay.
the house had everything you need to have for a big groupplenty of sleeping space hot tub was great.
Only was disapointed that the pool table t was advertised was for children and no ping pong
Thank you for your review. I'm sorry that you did not see the Ping Pong surface that fits on top of the Foosball table. Also when you remove the Foosball area, the Pool table is below it. I will make sure the size of these tables are on the website in larger print. We look forward to your return and are offering you a 5% return guest discount. Yours, Aunt Judith & Uncle Buck
Fun family trip
We had a great time at the Tudor Rose Manor! We have a large family group with lots of grandkids and really enjoyed the outdoor space and the toys in the front yard. Everything was clean and it was easy to tell where things went. The owners and managers were helpful. It was so nice to be able to walk to the beach and roast hot dogs and s’mores with the firewood and wagon provided by the owners. The backyard has several grills and tons of seating, so we had an awesome cookout after hitting some of the wonderful local fruit/veg stands, then spent time in the lovely spa. A great house, location, quiet neighborhood, and all the amenities made this our favorite stay on our trip!
This home is all about family & friends reunions. Everyone enjoys the short and level walk 3+ minute walk to a 7-mi long sandy beach and an adjoining state park (Seacliff). The new SwimSpa that can hold up to 12 guests at one time is proving to be a real bit of fun as reported in our Guest Log. This beach area also has the Pixie 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.
