About John D. Maher (JD)
Let me introduce you to my mother...(JD son #5) 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 John D. Maher (JD) chose Soquel
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.
What makes this House unique
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, or foosball, 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!

Nice home with lots of extras!
We had a great weekend stay at the Ranchero house! The house itself was in newly remodeled condition, so nothing was broken or in need of repair, and was large enough to host 2 families with 10 of us total. The kitchen was well-stocked with pots, pans, utensils, and appliances, as well as a good assortment of spices, oil, coffee, tea, plastic baggies/wrap, aluminum foil and other helpful items that you don't normally find in a rental, which made it easier for us to cook our own meals and only have to buy the basic ingredients without worrying about all the little things that make a grocery bill add up. The foosball and ping-pong tables were nice to have to keep the teenagers busy. The neighborhood was quiet, and while the house backs a large park used for soccer and other sporting events, we were gone during most of the daylight hours that they were holding games anyway, so it was not an issue. Thanks for hosting our family retreat, JD!
House was beautiful
The house was great had everything you need to cook and stay there for any amount of time. The kids had a great time as well
The photos represent the property perfectly.
We really enjoyed our stay. The house is beautiful and in a great area. John was great to communicate with. Would definitely stay there again.
Lovely and comfortable home!
This home was the perfect stay for our family. Everything was very clean and organized. We had our two grandchildren with us. The ping pong table was fun and the home is close to a park. The owners were easy to work with and very responsive. We would stay here again.
This house has everything covered! Fully stocked. Literally just bring your clothes.
We enjoyed this home while attending my nieces wedding in Santa Cruz. Very well kept home with all the amenities. We brought an iron but found they already had the identical iron in the laundry area. We brought gift wrapping supplies and found that this house also has scotch tape and scissors if needed. The labeling in this home is well thought out. Linens and toiletry is more plentiful than most hotels. All nine of our extended family slept well in the comfortable bedding. The only caveat to our enjoyable stay is the AC didn’t work and each evening we returned to a warm home at about 80F. Being an engineer I did observe that their AC had a clean air filter but must have had a low freon charge. Luckily there are normally cool nights In Soquel so we just had to open all the windows in order to cool the home down for the two nights we stayed.
Great house feels like a home
Great house. Great location. Very well stocked house with all the immenities of home. They have pretty much thought of everything. Only about a 10 min drive to the boardwalk. Would recommend to anyone looking to stay in the area.
