About the Property
Estate, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-12)
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.

About the owner: Mike and Monica were married in 2008 and are always on the move. From Mike's professional career as an athlete, to their multiple business'...the two rarely spend more than a week in any one location. They have been very fortunate to travel the country and travel the world, where they have found many inspirations for their vacation home in Santa Cruz, Ca.
Why the Owner Chose Aptos, CA, USA:
We absolutely love all the activities, weather and scenery Santa Cruz has to offer. We absolutely love going to the beach. The only thing we don’t like about the beach is the summertime fog that comes and goes. We loved this house because it put us 1.4 miles from the beach but out of the fog patterns so that we can enjoy the beach when its sunny and beautiful but not get stuck at a house covered in fog. The other limiting factor with most the homes near the beach that we looked at was the lack of space. With 4 acres, tons of parking, 2 roads, huge patios, decks and lawns…it provides us with a place to entertain our friends and family without feeling smothered by the next door neighbors or annoyed with the constant flow of traffic to and from the beach. Another thing we loved was the safety, privacy and exclusiveness of the neighborhood. An added benefit to the house that we realized after we moved in was that it was right in the center of all three Santa Cruz villages.
The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
Privacy, luxury, space, views 1.4 miles to the beach less than 3 miles to any of the villages (Capitola village, Aptos village, Soquel village) exclusive neighborhood feeling of getting away while still being conveniently close to everything.
