Gorgeous home in secluded space. Perfect for our family to spend the weekend together and enjoy the incredibly scenery from the spacious deck. This is a really special home, and Tom was a wonderful host! – Amy / May 2018
Perfect place for a team retreat! We loved the patio, grill and proximity to the beach. Would definitely come back. – Mallory / May 2018
Tom’s ranch is an amazingly lovely property overlooking a gorgeous vista of hills and California greenery. Excellent amenities and value—really enjoyed our stay. A+ - Clair / May 2018
…the place is absolute gorgeous, with a fantastic view and great amenities. We were a group of twelve, and we had plenty of space and a very comfortable stay. We highly recommend the Willow Pond Ranch, and hope to come back in the future! – Avshalom / April 2018
Amazing location and home for a family trip or company offsite. The house is modern, spacious, and well decorated. The property is incredible - nestled in the hills with a great view. We had a group of 14 and never did we feel cramped or bored. It was absolutely perfect. Would highly recommend. – Lucia / April 2018
Not a party house, we respect our neighbors' serenity and expect you to do so also.
New massage chair, hot tub, espresso. Looking for your next great gathering with family, friends or associates? Ideal for brainstorming (screen available). How about a beautiful mountain retreat? Fresh air breezes. Cool spring water. Where nature abounds. Dark at night. Quiet and peaceful away from the crowds yet still close to beaches and all the fun. Welcome to Willow Pond Ranch, the Santa Cruz Mountain equestrian sanctuary. Be sure to check out our tour video (Search u tube: tom north VRBO).
Magic Happens in the Majestic Santa Cruz Mountains.
A typical recent review: "The ranch is the most perfect team offsite location! It’s beautiful, stately, large, and well located. My team did planning and brainstorming and bonded. The kitchen is beautiful, has two ovens and sinks and is great for preparing large meals with multiple chefs. All the equipment was new and high quality. The hot tub was great, views gorgeous and beds so comfortable. It’s an incredibly luxury experience and place to stay. Highly recommend! "
Extensive hardscape, roses, fruit trees, redwoods, and lush mature gardens are accented by a spectacular 40' terraced waterfall and koi pond. With over 2,000 sq. ft. of patio, porch, and decks on which to entertain, like royalty, overlook Love Creek Valley from your custom-crafted newly renovated 4BR/3BA hillside chateau high above. In all directions and from all rooms, like magic the serenity and splendor outside soothes and is felt inside.

Peaceful - dark, quiet at night
Soothing – nature abounds: quail call, birds chirp, owls hoot, hawks soar, ducks dart, coyote yip
