                We had ten adults and 2 children staying in the house and had a great time. The separation between up and down worked well, with groups forming up or down depending on their activities. The hot tub was a hit and we used the grill. Most of all we loved the access to the beach and cafes, early morning walks, group coffee outings, body surfing, or just sitting. There are six parking places and this makes a huge difference in the area. The back yard is fully fenced which was important to us with our small family members. The kitchens are well equipped and the dining areas comfortable. Finally the washer and dryer were put to good use by everyone in our group. The property manager was helpful and came quickly when we had a problem with the hot tub. The area is lively but not noisy. We all agreed we would come back and do it again.

                Recommended for: Sightseeing, girls getaway, families with young children, age 55+, families with teenagers.

                The property is even cuter than the pictures. The five bedrooms have 2 kings, 1 queen, 1 full, and 2 twin beds which accommodated our 9 adults and two babies well. The property seems to have been 2 separate units at one time, so there are two kitchens, two livings rooms and many places to congregate and separate. For the extra people allowed there are couches and two child size mattresses for the floor. The stairs between the floors are in the interior of the house. We often gathered in the upstairs portion, where there is a good view of the ocean and all the surfers. This is a popular walking street, so we walked daily to the north or south (30 minutes) to Capitola Pier. The steps down to the beach are across the street. There are casual restaurants within walking distance. We enjoyed the famous Boardwalk, Capitola, the Redwood Train Ride and the Canopy Zip Tour in nearby Mount Hermon. The owners were out of town but they had a full time manager and a handyman on call. Other than to be met upon arrival, we did not use them since we had everything we needed at the home and had no problems when there. This was the perfect place for our little family reunion.

                For the past three years my husband and I have run in the Wharf to Wharf in July and so we decided to make it a family vacation as well. We have included four families (us, almost all my in-laws, and my parents). We have stayed in a couple of other VRBO's, but this one was so perfect we want to make it our Santa Cruz vacation home every year!!! We spent most of our time upstairs because of the amazing view of the ocean! The kitchens had pretty much every single tool we needed to make our meals! The fridge has an ice maker. There is a trash compactor. The TV's are all flat screens. I was even able to put my memory card in and view the pics from my camera! The hot tub was a huge plus! The parking space was really great since we had 5 cars and then we did have a few visitors. The location is ideal because it's only about 4.5 miles from the boardwalk and 1.5 miles from Capitola, which makes the walk back after the race feasible!!! My only complaint at all was that the wi fi really didn't seem to be working well at all. But really...during a vacation like this, did I really NEED wi fi? I love this place and recommend it to anyone!!!

                There were nine of us (4 couples and a single) that stayed at this great home in Santa Cruz. It was just what the doctor ordered. We had such a wonderful time and would recommend the home to groups of friends as we were or family get togethers. All 5 bedrooms were spacious and the entire home had everything you could imagine to prepare and serve meals and of course cocktail times. Although we brought a lot of extras with us, we found we did not have to use them at all. The owners were very helpful with all our questions before arrival and even called us to wish us a Happy New Year and to see if there was anything we needed. Our group rents homes at different locations each year for New Year's Eve and we have never had an owner do that! Special - as was their home. The Manzanita Manor is a lovely home and has so many home-like touches that made us feel right at home with you there. Thanks again!

                We stayed at this location to celebrate a family birthday. We were a family of 8 adults, 2 teenagers, a toddler and a baby. The owner was very helpful with additional information about the property before we booked. What a great house for a family get together. We really enjoyed cooking and hanging out in the kitchen and great room with the ocean views. Plenty of room for 12 people to move around. Thanks for having all the supplies we could ever need: spices, utensils, pots and pans, towels, detergent, etc. You really have a knack for making guests feel at home. Great location. Property was clean and well maintained. Loved sitting on the outside deck to watch the surfers. Lots of off street parking. Hope to visit again.
