Dance studio for rent by prearrangement. $20/hour cash.
Marianna was very sweet & accomodating. We loved her campsite & will be back in the future! Clean bathroom, well-equipped kitchen, & our campsite was positioned perfectly so we could see the sunset.
My boyfriend and I had a wonderful time camping on this property. It is truly a beautiful area that has been set up perfectly. It was very nice to be out in nature with the convenience of the kitchen and bathroom area. We only stayed here for one night, but during that time Marianna was very accessible and made us feel very welcome. I would recommend this undoubtedly to anyone going to the area!
Lovely host and great spot to camp. Great to have nice shower, wifi and powerpoints to check our online business updates on the road!
The place was awesome!!! I would totally camp there agin for sure..Marianna was a great host! Very welcoming..thanks again!
We had a wonderful experience at Marianna's. It was just as described --so much more than just a beautiful campsite. The bathroom was clean and homey. Kitchen had great appliances and was well-stocked with cooking supplies and utensils. The shared refrigerator was large. It was nice to meet other like-minded travellers. She offers a place to camp and a sense of community. Everyone was very respectful and friendly! Location was great. Her driving directions were excellent. Views on the drive and from the campsite were beautiful. Hard to believe we were minutes from town. We would love to return sometime.
Marianna's property was perfectly situated on the hills outside of capitola. The view was gorgeous and we really enjoyed plush camping so close to town, but yet still in a gorgeous natural setting. The bathroom and kitchen were well suited for the guests, and Marianna was an incredibly sweet woman and easy to get in touch with. Highly recommend the camping on her land.
