Where is it?
Our quiet neighborhood backs up to the wooded De Laveaga Park and the plateau above that overlooks the spectacular Monterey Bay. This creates a nice warm climate where "banana belt" plants grow well year-round.
At the west end of Prospect Heights is the entrance to the beautiful De Laveaga Golf Course where there are many accessible uncrowded trails to enjoy nature.
Our home is 2.6 miles from the beach. Santa Cruz is located adjacent to the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary. We are 70 miles from San Francisco, 40 minutes from the San Jose Tech Museum and the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Easy day trips to Big Sur and Carmel. Santa Cruz County is home to many noted wineries and micro-breweries and is famous for world class surfing.
Four spectacular redwood state parks are clustered in Santa Cruz County, including Big Basin and Henry Cowell, where towering mountain redwoods meet sandy beaches. The 4,300 acres of redwoods in Big Basin are among the largest stands of old-growth (never logged) redwoods in the world.
