Manresa Meadows is a very special vacation rental on beautiful acreage just one block from Manresa State Beach. Meander down one of the wildflower lined paths through beautiful acres of meadow to the private eucalyptus-shaded picnic area, complete with firepit, teak picnic tables and chairs. Owls and a variety of interesting birds are frequently seen in the trees surrounding this part of the estate. Follow the path to high ground for a spectacular view of Monterey Bay.
Tranquil views of meadow and farmland from the hot tub, master bedroom, and main deck. Expansive upper and lower decks, indoor and outdoor dining, gas BBQ, hot tub, wide-screen TV and comfortable great room design make Manresa Meadows a superior vacation home.
Pet-friendly Manresa Meadows offers activities for the whole family. Fido will love sleeping in the two doghouses, running in the 400 sq. ft. concrete-surfaced dog run, and roving over the fully fenced two acres of meadowland.
Manresa Meadows is on the Pacific Coast Bicycle Route, just south of La Selva Beach a short block’s walk from Manresa State Beach. Activities nearby include beachcombing on miles of white sandy shoreline, kayaking and wildlife viewing at Elkhorn Slough, hiking and mountain biking at Nisene Marks State Park, dining at Sanderling’s restaurant at Seascape Resort, and golfing at Seascape Golf Course in nearby Aptos. Monterey is 31 miles to the south, and Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk is a short 14-mile drive.

About Bailey Property Management
We fell in love with Manresa Beach the first time we visited the Central Coast — the views of Monterey Bay and acres of strawberry fields. Bob and Sharon Bailey — and Lucky
Bailey Property Management purchased this House in 1997
Why Bailey Property Management chose La Selva Beach
This was our home for 12 years. The floor plan is open and spacious. The 2-1/2 fenced acres provide a feeling of privacy and spacious natural beauty. We're close enough to enjoy all that Santa Cruz and Monterey have to offer — sightseeing, biking, surfing, hiking, beachcombing — and come home to tranquility and natural beauty.

Fantastic property and location!
We spent a lovely week at this property. It was very clean and beautifully supplied. We enjoyed roaming the big yard, soaking in the hot tub, and eating meals on the lovely patio. Manresa State Beach is conveniently across the street. The only downside is that you do have to go to the property manager's office in Aptos to pick up keys at the start and drop off at the end (we've become accustomed to keycode entries at Airbnb rentals), so that required a bit of timing/planning with their office hours. Other than that, I highly recommend this property to families and couples. Layout was terrific and the kitchen is stocked with high quality cookware and utensils!
Beautiful fenced property, lovely trails, sturdy stairs, eucalyptus and sunshine
We celebrated my husbands BD with 6 other family members. We BBQ'd and ate outdoors at the table (weather was slightly cool but sunny and excellent even in early March). Kitchen was well equipped. We all went out to walk the two dogs because it was such a spectacular, serene, and private environment, with tufted grass on the hills and California poppies in the yard, views of farmland in the distance, a smell of eucalyptus and the lovely sound of the ocean waves lapping in the distance every evening.
excellent for dog owners
While the house is very pleasant I would like to emphasized greatness of the yard and kennel. We were driving up from LA to attend a wedding the next day. Once we arrived we let the dogs loose in the fully fenced and secure back yard. It is immense and has excellent walking paths. Our dogs though were in heaven. They ran full speed all over and up and down the yard. The next day we left the dogs in the provided kennel. It is very secure, has two dog houses and water. Once we got back they once again had the run of the giant yard. The area is very quiet and has excellent views. As dog owners this is the single best property we have ever rented. Our doberman and terrier are still asleep from all the exertion. Great place.
The picture is not the property where we stayed. However, our home on Moosehead Drive in Aptos was absolutely the most amazing property. My son, his daughter and fiance and I were in California for my son's wedding and wanted to stay somewhere besides a motel/hotel. There were three bedrooms and space for two additional visitors to sleep comfortably. The property was neat and clean and easily reached from major highways. Absolutely the best weekend.
All the best
Don't stay in April - well, just because that is when we go out for spring break. This house is so close to the beach that we only used our car for grocery shopping. The back yard was like a park - we even had a fire in the pit one night! Would love bunk beds to accommodate children in one of the rooms but other than that we had everything we could need for a great vacation. We even extended our stay by a few days. We're hoping to make Manresa Meadows our yearly spring break destination.
Thank you, Sharon and Bob for opening your gorgeous to us. Four long-time women friends stayed there Sept. 14-21 2010. Although the photos were great, they couldn't capture the feeling inside and on the decks of this spacious "retreat". The architecture and floor plan are perfect for both connection and privacy. Everything top quality down to the smallest detail. Three of our group are serious cooks-- one was a teaching chef in Napa. So to say that the kitchen had everything a serious cook wants/needs, says a lot. The property was impeccably clean. (We did our best to leave it as we found it). Thank you for responding to our concerns. Cooking, eating, hiking; cooking, eating, strolling on the beach; cooking eating, going to two farmer's markets; cooking, eating, dancing to music on your great sound system; RELAXING, looking out on the many vistas; minutes away from Capitola--- a world away from our busy lives. Way beyond our expectations.
