  • I had a great stay camping on Marianna's property. I had a beautiful sunset, great sunrise, the tenants around the property were welcoming, and made delicious apple pie. I didn't get to know them enough to try a slice, but great to see community. I hope to stay here again, it is great for camping when it is all booked in Capitola! Thanks!

  • Very easy, convenient alternative to camping in the nearby state park areas, and I found my experience at Marianna's to be quite peaceful and relaxing. Beautiful view and sunset from the yard at the top of the hill. Would like to work that flamenco lesson into my schedule next time for sure.. Thanks Marianna!

  • I have stayed here twice. Marianna is a wonderful host! She is always flexible with check in/out. Her property is gorgeous, it is in the mountains surrounded by redwoods and one can look out to see the ocean- yet it's only a ten minute drive to town. it is amazing. I highly recommend staying with Marianna.

  • The campsite was very accessible...close to the parking, bathroom etc. We were definitely not roughing it. Marianna was very nice and welcoming. She was also very on top of sending an email ahead of time to make sure she would be around when we planned on checking in. I would love to come back!
    The only down side were a few people staying there that were noisy. They quieted down after I got up and knocked on their door (they were staying in the loft and were partying at 1am loud enough to wake us). We let Marianna know about it the next morning and she told us we could have called her and she would have taken care of was absolutely not her fault these folks were noisy and she thanked us for letting her know.
    I like the cute flamenco themed decor items in the bathroom etc. Next time maybe I will take a flamenco lesson if she is available since she is a flamenco instructor with a dance studio on the grounds. Very cool.

  • This is a truly beautiful place. It is way better than most campgrounds. It has a beautiful outlook plus you have a kitchen and bathroom.

    Marianna is very welcoming and we would have liked to stay longer!

  • I couldn't be more impressed, the view and the sunset were absolutely stunning. Marianna and her husband are very nice and welcoming. The other renters don't bother you and the bathroom has a heat lamp! We will be back for sure! Thank you!

  • I had a wonderful time camping. Everyone I met was friendly and great company. It was just what I needed. Plus, I loved watching the flamenco lesson! Amazing. I definitely would like to go back again, perhaps for longer than one night.
