Vista Verde

Community Association

Welcome to the official website of the Vista Verde Community Association (VVCA). Vista Verde is a residential community nestled in the Santa Cruz Mountains of San Mateo County, 50 miles south of San Francisco and six miles from Stanford University. Situated above the Town of Portola Valley at an average elevation of 1500 feet, it overlooks San Francisco Bay and is surrounded by thousands of wooded acres of permanent open space, yet is only 10 minutes from Interstate 280. The 105 “rural estates” are favored by a microclimate ranked among the best in the world.

Emergency Response

The magical paradox of Vista Verde is that its rural beauty and solitude is just 10 minutes from I280 and the heart of Silicon Valley. However, our community’s unique geography and geology also make it susceptible to major earthquakes and wildland fires. During a major natural disaster, our community could be cut off from emergency services for days. By being prepared and getting involved in various training exercises/classes, residents can help to protect themselves, their families, their neighbors, and their property in the case of a major natural disaster.
