About John D. Maher (JD)

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 Santa Cruz County

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, 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! Ranchero House can become your yearly destination for seeing the local sights, providing the comfort and relaxation you need while making memories for a lifetime! Let us help you make it happen!

WTW family trip

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in this lovely home. It was perfect for 5 adults and a 3 month old infant. It has everything that you need. Everything is clean and nice. Beds are comfortable. We enjoyed the outdoor deck and lawn very much. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend it highly. JD was very responsive to my inquiries. Thank you for having this home on VRBO.

Awesome weekend in Santa Cruz

  • 5 of 5

This house is absolutely beautiful, you can really tell how much work the owners have put into it! It really feels like a home, with a beautiful backyard, an awesome game room, and everything you could need in the kitchen. The location is awesome, right next to a park and a short drive to many gorgeous beaches. Highly recommend this place!

Wonderful and comfy stay

  • 5 of 5

This property was one of my favorite VRBOs stay. The host made it super easy to check in and had tons of amenities to make my stay here accommodating! There were tons of towels, sheets, and extra bedding options. We loved staying here and would definitely recommend this home! Also the park behind the house was a great opportunity to do a nice run!

Awesome home; great experience

  • 5 of 5

We rented Ranchero house for three nights visiting Soquel for a wedding. Our family of seven had plenty of room. We hosted a dinner party for 15 and everything we needed was available. The house is very clean, next to a large and beautiful park but also very private. Beautiful landscaping and well organized. The ping pong table provided another outlet for fun. The outdoor deck with gas grill was a huge plus. JD, the booking agent, was always accessible. We left a shirt and cell phone charger which was promptly returned. We had a great experience and would definitely rebook if we ever returned. I highly recommend Ranchero house.
