Larkin Valley is a rural and scenic community located in the unincorporated area of California’s Santa Cruz County settled within the Aptos Hills area. Larkin Valley is nestled inland and at higher elevations, allowing for properties to command picturesque views of the gently sloping hillside and the Monterey Bay.
Our location allows for us to enjoy the area’s warm and temperate climate as well as the cool moist air known as the ‘marine layer’ which lifts by mid morning. Larkin Valley is just 4 miles east of Manresa Beach, one of Santa Cruz’s local favorites for years.
“Nature gives to every time and season some beauties of its own.” ~ Charles Dickens
