                  Location

                  You'll find very high prices to stay at beach-front properties in Santa Cruz and Capitola. You can avoid the crowded streets and nightly noise by staying at Gloria Ann's Ranchero House in beautiful Soquel, located just minutes from the beach. Wineries, local shops, clean beaches, Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk and fine restaurants are all close by too. This completely remodeled home features flat screen TVs in every room, DISH Satellite service, brand new beds, hotel-like bathrooms, back yard deck with brand new BBQ, modern kitchen, games, books, CD and DVD library with a ping pong table in the garage. Ranchero House is located just steps from Anna Jean Cummings Park with walking/running paths, picnic grounds, large open fields baseball/soccer fields and playground equipment for children. Gloria Ann's Ranchero House: 'Close enough to the beach without beachfront prices!'

                   

                  Owner info

                  About the owner: I'm Gloria Ann, raised just one mile North of Ranchero House, in the 1950s when the rolling hills of Soquel were all dairies, orchards and farmland. My mother and Italian immigrant father raised chickens and goats while living the American dream of raising children, owning property and living off the land. Now a retired public school educator/administrator, some of my most peaceful moments are spent reading a great novel on the large deck in the backyard. It is my pleasure to share our vacation home with you and your family as you relax, enjoy the beach and coastal amenities, while making memories for a lifetime. May you always feel welcome here!

                  Why the Owner Chose Santa Cruz:
                  Keep searching and you'll notice the high price of vacation home rentals in the Santa Cruz or Capitola beachfront area. Quite frankly, the nights get loud and the streets very busy during the peak beach season. Who needs that? You're on vacation, right? While at Gloria Ann's Ranchero House, you can enjoy quiet Soquel nights, a walk along the Anna Jean Cummings Park walking trail or just some great BBQ moments on the back deck.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Rachero House is equipped with everything you need. My family and I have gone to great lengths to provide you, your family and friends with a fully equipped kitchen, towels, linens, fine soaps, shampoo and conditioner, hair dryers with comfortable beds and pillows. Every guest can find their niche at Ranchero House whether they're in the back yard barbecuing, relaxing on the large deck, playing ping-pong in the finished garage, watching DISH Satellite TV on one of the four flat-screen LCD or Plasma TVs located in each bedroom and great-room, playing cards or games on the game table, reading one of the many novels in the library, or preparing a meal in the modern kitchen. Close enough to fine dining like the 4 star Shadowbrook Restaurant or the best pizza you will ever taste; Pizza My Heart in Capitola! Ranchero House can become your yearly destination for seeing the local sights, providing the comfort and relaxation you need while making memories for a lifetime! Let us help you make it happen!
