About: Brent is a professional sail boat racer and I work as the director of human resources for a large digital art and technology company. We are both athletes and enjoy mountain biking and trail running. We both live in Santa Cruz, CA and go to the Mauna House as often as we can. We hope you love it here as much as we do. April and Brent
Why Downieville, CA, USA:
We have been going to Downieville for the last 20 years, riding mountain bikes, fishing and trail running. We wanted to spend more time in Downieville and we fell in love with this house last summer because of it's simplicity and the history of the property. The house had been in the same family since the turn of the last century: 1900. The fact that it was rebuilt after the 1937 flood with wood recycled from the town's gold mining days and still had some the original light fixtures and fencing just added to the charm. We have deliberately kept the furnishings simple and uncluttered so that we can enjoy the house and garden and not be overwhelmed by stuff.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Listening to the river, sitting on the porch or back deck, people watching and being in a calming, peaceful environment.
