NEW LISTING! The Johanna Manor belongs to a professional athlete and is now opened to the public through vacation rentals.

The Johanna Estates Neighborhood has been proclaimed by Santa Cruz realtors as being one of the most exclusive neighborhoods in the Santa Cruz County. The neighborhood is unique in that it offers unmatched privacy, luxury, grandeur, convenience, and warmth. Its located only 1.4 miles to New Brighten beach and 2 miles from Capitola beach (the most charming beach town on this side of the bay). When you’re at the beach and the fog rolls in, no worries; you can leave the fog behind when you retreat back to the privacy of your estate.

Once back at the manor your options are endless. Take a walk or bike ride down the private roads within the exclusive neighborhood. This estate sits on 4 acres and has its own private views of the forest. You may just want to kick back and relax in the hot tub, watch the wildlife off the back patio, or fire up the pizza oven with your family or friends. Looking for more activities? Santa Cruz is known for its world class surfing. Less known is that people travel from all over the world to bike Santa Cruz roads and mountains. One of the premier biking, hiking and running spots in Santa Cruz is Nisene Marks State Park.

If your into Golf, you probably already know that the Monterey Bay and Santa Cruz County boast many of the best courses in the world. For fun the whole family can enjoy, check out the Santa Cruz beach boardwalk, the mystery house, roaring camp as well as many other local attractions.

When it comes to shopping, food and entertainment; this estate is centrally located less than three miles from Capitola Village, Soquel Village, and Aptos Village.

The Johanna Manor has just recently been completely renovated.

Amazing House, Beautiful Property, Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We came for a staff retreat and absolutely loved the spacious but cozy feel that this house provided. From the moment we walked inside, we felt at home! The home was clean and spacious, and provided us with everything we needed to have a relaxing stay - including a large family room area that spills into the (well-stocked) spacious kitchen and dining room. The backyard is perfect for hanging out and the views from every room are stunning! This home is located in a great, quiet location that makes you feel secluded and far from the city, but is only minutes to the beach and restaurants. We cannot wait to return!

Quiet, comfortable, clean

  • 5 of 5

This property is in the woods in Aptos. The location is wonderfully quiet, a 10-minute drive from beautiful hiking, a close drive to Santa Cruz. Two pluses for us were the inviting seating area near the kitchen and the attractive comfortable bedrooms. Our family spent many enjoyable hours chatting in the family room, and everyone slept well. The pizza oven in the back yard was a fun adventure. We had delicious fire-baked pizzas for Saturday breakfast (remember to bring wood.) The kitchen/eating area were very practical for a large family and provided an area to play late-night games. The owners were very responsive and positive. We are already discussing a return to this beautiful property.

Spectacular Experience

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for 2 nights for my 50th Birthday celebration. We are Silicon Valley residents, but had family coming from out of town and wanted to make this weekend really special. We liked what we saw on the pictures, but I must say they don't do the justice to this magnificent property. The inside of the house is tasteful and wonderfully furnished. The rooms have big windows with views into the surrounding woods. But the most spectacular part of the experience is the deck that puts you right into these woods. The only sad part of our experience was having to leave -- and this was a unanimous for a group that included five children ages 7-15 and seven adults ages 21-75. We are definitely coming back some day

Perfect Vacation Home in Aptos!

  • 5 of 5

Love this property!! Tucked away in the redwoods where you'll find tons of privacy but also extremely close to the beach. The house in beautiful and spacious with a well stocked kitchen. Oh and the hot tub outdoors is so lovely!

Monica, the owner, is an absolute pleasure to communicate with and she made the whole experience even more enjoyable for us.

Highly recommended!

Terrific Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed an incredible week in this lovely home to celebrate my parents 50th anniversary. It was the perfect size and location for my family. We loved the very private and quiet location, quiet streets for kids to bike ride, easy drive to beaches and other activities. The house is very well maintained for a rental, nice sheets, very clean bathrooms, comfortable beds. The kitchen is very large with a big island, lots of counter space, cooking was a joy, sipping wine and enjoy gathering all together. Would highly recommend for a number of occasions and hope to return one day.

Great family getaway

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my entire family for three nights. That's 8 adults, 4 children, no problem. There was plenty of room. The living room is big enough for all of us to watch a movie together. The kitchen is huge with plenty of counter space and cooking utensils. The upstairs bedrooms are all spacious but the master is like its own apartment and has a private deck. Backyard is great. The kids loved playing on the lawn (turf) and throwing balls down the hill (sigh). There are two gas grills, a pizza oven, and a fire pit. One thing that stuck out were all the windows. You always feel connected to the surrounding forest, even though you're five minutes from the beach. It was pretty awesome to wake up and see the fog laden trees out your window. Also, the owner Monica was very easy to work with and answered all questions right away. She provided us with pizza dough and a complimentary bottle of wine. Nice touch.
