For many who love Los Gatos, but cannot quite manage the price point, the Cambrian area of San Jose is a wonderful alternative: it's close by and has very strong schools too. Here's a look at the Cambrian market's absorption rate by Elementary School District:

Foothills of Los Gatos - a duplex community near El Camino Hospital of Los Gatos, Netflix, and Vasona Station in west Los Gatos - http://liveinlosgatosblog.com/foothills-of-los-gatos-a-duplex-community-near-el-camino-hospital-of-los-gatos/ #LosGatosRealEstate
If you've ever driven Knowles Drive near El Camino Hospital of Los Gatos, you've likely passed a small sign announcing a nearly hidden neighborhood named Foothills of Los Gatos. What's not evident from the busier road is that this is a tidy duplex community along Dardanelli Lane and Vasona Court ...

Two Los Gatos neighborhoods: Kennedy Meadows and Kennedy Estates.  Both are located near the Surrey Farm area, off Kennedy Road, and both offer high end homes that are fairly young by local standards.  http://liveinlosgatosblog.com/kennedy-meadows-and-kennedy-estates/ #LosGatosNeighborhoods #LosGatosRealEstate
Kennedy Meadows and Kennedy Estates are adjoining upscale residential neighborhoods in east Los Gatos, both along Kennedy Road and just a little further from the downtown area than the Surrey Farm subdivision. Below, please find the approximate boundaries that I mapped out.

Your friends are doing something right if they can afford to live there!  A 2 bedroom apartment on the Peninsula is probably $2800 to $3500 per month, depending on the location. (SF is worse, almost $5000!)

Santa Rosa Drive and Sierra Azule neighborhood - a scenic area on the eastern edge of Blossom Hill, this pretty area enjoys views of the Santa Clara Valley and the coastal foothills - the area nearest once being known as Sierra Azul - #LosGatosRealEstate   #LosGatosNeighborhoods  

http://liveinlosgatosblog.com/santa-rosa-drive-and-sierra-azule-neighborhood/
About seventy five to eighty spacious homes sit along the scenic eastern ridge tops of Blossom Hill along or just off of Santa Rosa Drive. It's a stunning neighborhood which enjoys views both of the Santa Clara Valley on one side and the Santa Cruz Mountains on the other.

My daughter and I ate there on July 18 2012. The food was good. Our waitress, Ina, was wonderful. But the manager was a jerk! We saw him arguing with our very overworked waitress in front of most of the restaurant (embarassing). On our way out, I told him that the food and service were really good. Instead of thanking me, he said "yes but sometimes I have to correct her (our waitress)." No need to bash his hard working waitress. I hope she finds a better job soon - they had her doing far too many tables (she had 11 that night) and instead of "public praise, private criticism", the obnoxious manager was doing it backwards. If they could get a new manager, it would be a really great restaurant. But right now, he makes the place uncomfortable and stressful for both employees and patrons.
