Imagine having a two bedroom/two bath home in the forest all to yourself. Complete privacy. A breathtaking view. A deeply satisfying quiet. Add to that all of the creature comforts you might want, civilization nearby, and you have Valley View.

Set overlooking Henry Cowell Redwood State Park, just north of Santa Cruz, California, ¬†walk onto the rear deck, and the world is at your feet: 20,000 acres of forest below you, ancient redwoods towering above. You may easily forget that you’re only minutes from shopping, restaurants, wine tasting and the renowned Santa Cruz beaches and the famous Santa Cruz Boardwalk.

Santa Cruz is regarded as one of the most beautiful and romantic places in the Bay Area, nestled between San Francisco to the North and the fabulous Monterey Bay peninsula to the South. Romantic drives down the Pacific Coast Highway 1 refresh your senses with the fresh ocean air and dramatic coastal scenery.
