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.

Nice little spot not too far from the happenings of SC. Had a little trouble with the hot water but Patricia was very accommodating and we made it happen! The eggs are delicious too! Best I’ve had :)

I had a great stay! Patricia and family were responsive and helpful with any questions I had. I didn’t see them much but felt very welcome when I did. Great private stay, warm shower, and quiet valley for a few nights under the stars in Santa Cruz.

Ezra and Patricia were the perfect hosts. Warm and friendly with a beautiful property. Tubs are great and probably best used in warm weather unless you have a portable fireplace to warm yourself by upon getting out of the tub. We loved everything about this quirky little place. Especially the Persimmon tree!

It was so wonderful! We cannot wait to come back. The perfect combo of city and remote. We were able to get to town and back super fast and enjoy fires under the stars. The soaking tub was also very nice we cannot wait to come back.

Surfer’s paradi
Was just what I needed for a relaxing restorative experience. Came back from surfing and got to soak my cold bones in a hot tub. I was sooth by the sound of owls and coyotes as I drifted off to sleep! Even got to go into town for dinner, get the best of both worlds!

Fantastic location and wonderful hosts. We loves hearing the owls hooting nearby and enjoyed finding deer, turkey, and coyote sign/tracks on the trails above the campsite. We also stopped by the Mystery Spot which less than 5 minutes down the road.

Super chill campsite. Easy to find. Gorgeous views on the drive. I ran into Patricia when I was coming in and she was very friendly and accommodating.

Patricia is a great host!
Patricia was a very helpful host! We are car camping for the week and asked Patricia if one of the properties had a car spot (site 3). When we arrived we had some questions she came out and showed us around. Site 3 does not come with a soaking tub but Patricia allowed us to use site 2’s as it wasn’t booked that night. Wi-Fi works great! All problems solved, would recommend to anyone visiting Santa Cruz!

We enjoyed our stay at Patricia's property. Our campsite was wonderful. We loved the outdoor private site with a tub/shower. There's a nice trail to take up the back property that has a great view of the valley. We will definitely here again.

In an unexpected coincidence, after arriving at Patricia's and Ezra's land, I recognized it from a few years back when I was looking at purchasing property in the area. Seeing the before and now, I can attest to the care Patricia and Ezra have put into the property; and, from my experience this past weekend, I found it extends to their guests. We felt welcomed and safe and had the best slumber of our week. A short drive (or bike ride) into town and we were able to watch the sunset over the water before falling asleep to the fog nestled into the trees above us. We'll be back. Oh, the eggs are quite tasty.
