BAND ROOM NOISE NOTE: Peace and Quiet are very important to our guests. The public room (BAND ROOM) is only used for playing music when a GROUP occupies all the rooms and the music is for their entertainment. When the rooms are occupied by INDIVIDUALS that are unknown to each other music can only be played with the mutual consent of all INDIVIDUALS and thus is not very likely. As a matter of fact it has never happened.

SkyHouse is known locally as 'The Crown Jewel'. When the original owners of this ranch became elderly they gradually sold off lots for custom homes. They saved this property, believing one of their girls would build a home on the property. Therefore the street are named after their girls Carol, Nina, Elsie Mae and Daisy. All of the girls married men from out of town and moved away.

Bed and Continential Breakfast.

The views are like no other. Red tail hawks soar and hunt in the updraft in front of the property. Deer, raccoons, possum, hummingbirds and owls all pass through the property.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1990

About the owner: Susan born and raised in San Francisco. David from a small town in the Northeast on the border of Canada. Susan and David met for the first time February 22, 1999 at The Bach Dynamite and Dancing Society in Half Moon Bay. The meeting was arranged via Love at AOL (now Match). David selflessly taught Susan how to play bass guitar which pretty much guaranteed that there would be a band room wherever they live. We have a complete band room in our Boulder Creek house that includes: drums, percussion, microphones, PA, guitars, bass, keyboards, etc. that we make available to guests. We thought about downsizing for a nano-second but need the entire house for family weekends.

Why the Owner Chose Boulder Creek:
Spectacular view, extremely private and quiet.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Remodel Note: We are in the final months of a 2 year long major interior and exterior remodel. All rooms, decks and bathrooms are complete. There are still signs of construction on the property in the garden and yard areas. We do our best to cover or block the signs of construction from view. As you can see in our AirBNB reviews guests have not found it to be a problem.
