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)

The Bungalow
Not quite what I expected, but nice
The little cabin was just the right size - and Patricia had made it up to suit me. (i.e. single bed size ) It was not painted in those lovely orange and white colors that were shown on their original listing - but did seem to be clean and well maintained. The property as a whole has more of a "junkyard" feel - perhaps that is just what a working "ranch" normally looks like? Curtains of some kind at the smaller windows would be nice!

Campsites with Soaking Tub - Site 2
I camped here with my 5 yo son. At first, we had a little concern due to my 4runner not being able to drive up to camp site 2. Our tent is on top of the car. But, they had built a little shed with a memory foam mattress. We threw in a yoga mat over it and had a memorable camping trip. My son enjoyed soaking in the bathtub.

Campsite with Soaking Tub - Site 1
I’d been on the road for over 12 hours, traveling by motorcycle. I arrived just before sunset and the place was quiet and ready for me. It’s a fun set up with an outdoor kitchen, communal shower with privacy screening, a propane heated private outdoor soaking tub, and lots of space. I only atayed one night and had to get back on the road early, but I wish I could have stayed longer to meet the hosts. And camp this eclectic and fun must be owned by some equally interesting and fun people. I imagine, if I’m ever in the area, I’ll be staying here again.
