About the property

4 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Convertible bed(s), Sleeps 12

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.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

Property was excellent, everything was in very good order when we arrived, and the owner (Monica) was super-responsive to questions about things like the TV.

Great Place for a Group Stay

  • 4 of 5

Every year we run a basketball tournament in the Santa Cruz area and we find a large location to house most of our staff. Although this location was not large enough for everyone, it fit the bill! The home is a lovely 2 story on top of a forested hill. When the marine layer lifts you have a distant glimpse of the ocean. Very peaceful and quiet.

We baked Costco pizza's in the pizza oven one evening (read the instructions on how to do this correctly) but mostly spent our time offsite and indoors. THe kitchen and living areas were spacious. The rooms were of ample size and the bathrooms very functional.

Would be great for a family or business retreat!

We will likely consider returning next year!

Beautiful, private home, close to everything! We didn't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend getaway at Johanna Manor! The house was perfect! It had plenty of space to accommodate our group, with a great open floor-plan for entertaining. The house was very well stocked – plenty of kitchen supplies, linens, etc. The property was beautiful, quiet and private, and the house was clean, in great condition, and well taken care of. The house felt secluded, surrounded by forest, but was only a quick drive to Aptos and Capitola. Monica was great and answered any questions I had before the visit. I highly recommend staying at Johanna Manor and hope to return!!

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Very big house with bathrooms updated. Good size kitchen w plenty of pots , utensils, and pizza tools. A rustic look w furniture, great for kids. Great outdoor patio and furniture. Pizza oven takes a little trial and error and fire pit is on its last legs. Would definitely return with all of our kids and some more guests.

Simply Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This place is simply perfect for small get togethers. My son got married on Saturday and was able to stay at Johanna Manor with his groomsmen. I'll never forget swinging by Thursday evening and seeing him make pizzas for his guys. The pizza oven and outdoor fire pit with the fog rolling in and surrounding big trees was absolutely AMAZING!! The house itself was beautifully furnished and you could tell the owners really took care of the place. I couldn't recommend it more highly. This place is a gem!
