Did you know that the Belwood of Los Gatos cabaña can be rented by members for a variety of purposes?
Today (Saturday, August 25) the Leigh High School cheerleaders held a carwash fundraiser in the cabaña parking lot from 9am – 1pm. My family and I have rented it in the past for parties; most notably we did an 8th grade reunion party there for our son’s class from St. Mary’s Elementary School a year after the kids all graduated. A lot of people rent it for birthday parties and use the large lawn area for the “bounce houses” which are so popular with kids today.
Having a neighborhood cabaña is a nice plus. It can be a gathering point for folks to meet their neighbors in and around the pool.
In the Surmont, Belgatos, and Belwood neighborhoods, the cabaña is where we vote, it’s where we enjoy the summer bingo & movie on the lawn and where the holiday boutiques are held.
If you’re a member or resident and want to rent out the facility, your go-to person is Gina Wagner, who can be reached at 358-2229. The possibilities are endless!
Sunday October 26th from 3:30 – 6pm (free admission but donations appreciated) – games, prizes, candy, costumes and “the magic mirror”. Spooky haunted house tours begin at 5pm.
Pizza and Drinks served at 4pm (Pizza $2, Drinks $1).
Volunteers are needed to help with this incredibly fun event. Please contact Charleen Renati at 358-7905 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Things have been hopping in east Los Gatos.
Over the weekend, the Belwood of Los Gatos community participated in the “Community Yard Sale” that was happening throughout the town of Los Gatos. The cabaña was a busy place with folks selling their wares at what seemed like a good clip. Additionally, neighbors held yard sales in their own driveways and front yards too, as was the case all over this part of Silicon Valley.
The pool is open and swimmers are happy as the heat has been bearing down on us. To see about scheduling a party there (if you are a cabana member), see the Belwood Community’s website.
Real estate update
The real estate market is busy in Belwood, Belgatos, and Surmont too. There are now seven active listings and two pending sales in these three areas. As with other parts of town, not all homes are selling – only the ones perceived as being “the best value” for the money are getting offers and going to closing.
(For more information on the housing market, please click on the Real Estate button above.)
If you’d like information related to your particular Los Gatos or Silicicon Valley home, please email or phone me! I’d be happy to meet with you, view your home and discuss your wants and needs as relating to buying or selling a home.
