Interaction with Guests
We greet our guests upon check-in and enjoy seeing them around, however, we keep a very busy schedule with our family, school and sports. We do try and share a meal with our guests during their stay should our schedules permit.
We love our neighborhood! We love the 5 minute walk to town. We love the walk up to Testarossa Winery. We love the hiking and biking trails including the Creekside Trail. We love Nick's and the Purple Onion and lots more yummy eateries in downtown LG. We love the drive to Santa Cruz. We love Los Gatos. Our guest handbook has lots of local recommendations or feel free to ask us while you are staying.
Most everyone uses a car to get to and fro in and around Los Gatos. But once you arrive back at our guest apartment all that Los Gatos has to offer is mostly within walking distance. There is a public bus stop a short 5 minute walk from our guest apartment. Bus information is included in our welcome notebook.
