Meaning “the sling” in Spanish, La Honda actually has a rich cultural history. The author of One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, Ken Kesey, actually lived and wrote much of his esteemed novel in La Honda. Kesey and The Merry Pranksters were notorious in the area, eventually growing in cult status and notoriety in The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test by Tom Wolfe.


The house where Kesey lived is still in existence today after a restoration and attracts some curious visitors every year.


La Honda is currently praised for some of its high quality wine grape vineyards, many of which are run by La Honda Winery.

Considering how La Honda is a rural area, costs are low, as the wealth of the residents goes far.

There is a 1 in 560 chance of being a victim of a violent crime in La Honda and a 1 in 64 chance of being a victim of a property crime.


The State of California has a 1 in 249 chance of being a victim of a violent crime and a 1 in 38 chance of being a victim of a property crime. La Honda’s violent crime rate is much better than the state average but its property crime rate is much closer to it.

La Honda Residential, Retail, and Personal Security Services


First Security can help protect those in La Honda by providing the following specific security services:


  • Residential Security: La Honda is a quiet, rural area that has become notable for some of its vineyards in recent years. Its residents that live there are wealthy, but many of them also commute to other areas in San Mateo County, including Redwood City and the San Francisco Bay Area for work and leisure. Their homes can be vacant for an extended period of time as a result, which means that they’re susceptible to robberies. The noted wealth of the residents of La Honda does make them a target. It’s recommended that alarm systems be installed, which First Security can provide through its sister company, First Alarm Services. Neighborhood patrol options are also available.
  • Food & Beverage Security: There is not much in the way of restaurants, bars, and cafes in La Honda. Residents have to drive to nearby areas for the most part, but a few of the closest ones are Alice’s Restaurant, Parkside Grille, Daurte’s Tavern, and Portola Kitchen. These places do get busy at times, especially since there are only a limited number of options available in the area. First Security Services can provide protection at all times.
  • Points of Interest Security: La Honda, as has been noted, does have its vineyards and wineries. In addition, the La Honda Creek Open Space Preserve is close by, which is very popular with people who enjoy the outdoors. It’s a beautiful, serene area that is perfect for a day trip. In addition, La Honda is nearby the Santa Cruz Mountains so hiking and camping options are also available.
  • Cannabis security solutions


By hiring First Security, companies, organizations, and institutions, both of the private and public variety, will be able to ensure that they’re provided professional protection in regards to:


  • Vandalism
  • Theft
  • Intrusions
  • Employee Safety
  • Customer Safety
  • Violent Crimes


Residents in La Honda should consider hiring First Security patrol services to make sure that their community and their homes always remain safe. In addition, a great service, especially given how small La Honda  is, would be to install alarm systems through First Security’s sister company, First Alarm Services. By installing the alarm systems, you will have 24/7 monitoring and will have the authorities at your doorstep as fast as possible should any break-ins occur!


What makes First Security stand out is that every single First Security officer has been trained extensively on weaponry, restraining strategies, and combat PLUS the ability to peacefully resolve situations. First Security works with each and every company to find out their particular security needs and what they expect the service to entail, even as it pertains to the behavior of the First Security officers.
