This Manor was built in 1922 and it is currently surrounded by newer large homes and is a short 3 to 4-min walk to one of the area’s largest sandy beaches with fire rings for beach bonfires. The Tudor supplies free firewood for both the fireplaces and the beach bonfires. There are also a couple of nice delis for a short walk to get ice cream cones, a fine restaurant called Cafe Rio and a small corner grocery store. One advantage of being this short distance to the ocean, it that your guests can be assured of a quiet nights sleep, vs listening to the crash of the waves all night long.

It is also next to Seacliff State beach Park with the famous wharf and cement ship which is often used by sea life.

About: We had been looking for a family reunion home and just fell in love with this great Tudor style English Manor. It has been the place for many anniversary and 80th birthday parties for lots of great guests. Come celebrate your special occassion with your family and friends. More of our friends have vacation homes in the area can accommodate additional guests all within easy walk to the Rio Del Mar beach.

Why Aptos, CA, USA:
Being that the Manor was just a short and level 3-4 minute stroll to the 7-mile sandy beach was one of the main attractions of this home. The fact that there were no other homes that could handle up to 22 guests was another major factor.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
One of the largest homes near the large sandy Rio del Mar beach and the Seacliff Beach State Park with its famous wharf out to a cement ship called the Palo Alto.
