Magical 6 acre permaculture ranch just a few minutes to town, beaches and restaurants. Take a bath under a clear night sky, enjoy the morning birdsong and take a stroll on or off the property. We have free ranging chickens, a hidden spring surrounded by two creeks and wild plums. Happy Valley is a secret little gem of Santa Cruz. Plenty of space for relaxing, and amazing location for both convenience and adventures. (2 of the 3 sites have the tubs please read individual descriptions to find out if the one you chose has one)

Special! So close to everything
The cabin and the three campsites were lovely! Two of the campsites even had small trailers or areas to be able to stay in. The area was well kept. So lush and green! I would recommend for any family or group of friends.

Santa Cruz Glamping
What a great place. Plenty of room for my large group, with multiple private campsites. My wife and I stayed in the cabin. The outdoor shower and flush toilet were a huge bonus. We spent our evenings around the fire pit, after cooking in the outdoor communal kitchen. Glamping at its finest.

Campsite with Soaking Tub - Site 1
Cozy site few miles from Santa Cruz
My wife and I stayed at campsite #1 for the weekend. We wanted to use our tent, but it rained all weekend. Fortunately, the hosts let us sleep in our camper van in the parking lot next to our campsite, which worked out perfectly. The location is beautiful, and the portapotty and the sink next to it are clean. Our phones lost signal right before we arrived, but the Wi-Fi in the parking lot was fast enough for our devices. We didn't use the soaking tub due to the rain, but I tested it, and the water was hot. The host messaged me and told me to contact them anytime if there was no hot water. The hosts are nice and friendly; my wife and I will definitely visit again!

Campsite with Soaking Tub - Site 1
Misleading advertisment
The space is not as described, saying this is a permaculture farm is an overstatement. There is not a fire ring per campsite and the campsites are surrounded by makeshift housing where people live, this info is not disclosed in any of their information. We stayed im campsite 1 for one night and immediately behind the tin makeshift wall was a tiny home someone lived in. No seclusion of any sort and way more small permanent housing on site, in addition to the main house. More like camping in a commune. Wasnt what we were expecting or what was described. Nice pdf handout was very much misleading. Port-a-potty used by permanent residents and camping guest but doesn't seem to be regularly serviced.

Campsite with Soaking Tub - Site 1
The campsite was perfect and just what we needed after our previously booked spot cancelled on us last minute. Parking and set up was easy, as was use of the facilities such as the campfire, shower, and kitchen.
