Please visit the HOA website, www.BelwoodHomes.org, for the most current information on the membership areas, Cabaña, pool, and clubhouse.
Belwood of Los Gatos Cabaña Membership:
The cabaña offers a pool (lifeguards, swim lessons, The Dolphins swim team, and a great place to throw a party), basketball courts, and a clubhouse (where neighbors usually vote and other events happen throughout the year).
If you are interested in renting the pool or cabaña for your event, please contact Gina Wagner, who is the Facility Manager for the Homeowner’s Association. She can be reached at 358-2229.
Lifeguard jobs: If you are looking to work as a lifeguard at the Belwood Pool, please contact the HOA via their website: www.BelwoodHomes.org. (In summer I get a lot of calls for lifeguard positions, but I’m not the one who hires and do not represent the home owners association.)
Part of the neighborhood automatically belongs to the cabaña and has “class A” (mandatory) membership. Part of the area has optional membership, or “class D”.
Belwood of Los Gatos has 285 homes with mandatory dues. The area roughly follows these boundaries: south of Blossom Hill Road, west of Harwood Road (except for Jaime Court and part of Bacigalupi Drive) and east of Belgatos Road. In 2017, the cost of the dues is $555 per year. The optional or class D areas are the homes bounded by Belgatos Road east to Westhill and south to Blossom Hill Road plus 14 homes along Jaime Court and a part of Bacigalupi Drive. (Optional members currently pay $650 (as of 2017) per year to belong and use the pool plus $75 if you also want a key.)
