Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Our home is in Scotts Valley, a suburb of Santa Cruz — a small beach town on spectacular Monterey Bay, surrounded by redwood-covered hills and mountains. The beautiful campus of University of California at Santa Cruz overlooks the town. We're 15 minutes from the beach for sunning, swimming, and surfing. Redwood forests with excellent hiking trails are seven minutes away.

Hidden Glen is a safe, quiet community of 60 homes with private, community-owned swimming pool, tennis courts, and stable.

Special bicycle paths overlooking the sea make bicycling a popular sport. Bicycles — as well as roller skates, fishing boats, jet skis and surfboards — can be rented locally. The coast highway offers stunning scenery and an opportunity to view elephant seals, sea lions and otters just off shore.

South of here, near Monterey, are the world-famous Pebble Beach and Spy Glass golf courses, which draw celebrity golfers from around the world.

The beautiful and historic town of Monterey is just 40 minutes away. Here, visitors can enjoy more top-notch restaurants, the stunningly beautiful Monterey Bay Aquarium and Cannery Row —made famous by John Steinbeck's novel and movie of the same name.

Carmel, for many years a renowned artist's colony, has a unique charm. It's many upscale shops and galleries delight the eye. South of Carmel is 17 Mile Drive with its magnificent ocean views and dozens of baronial homes from an earlier era.
