About Kari Gates
I live on the property in a separate unit. There are also pets on the property, which will not interact with the guests aside from maybe a porch visit from my very fluffy grey cat, Puff. You will likely not see me unless you need something or I am getting the mail or a package from the porch. If the weather is hot I may need to water the front yard garden, but will respect your privacy and space. Things I love: gardening, animals, nature, hiking, live music, organic food.
Kari Gates purchased this House in 2003
Why Kari Gates chose Boulder Creek
I adore this town and this house. I have lived in the San Lorenzo valley since 1995. I bought this house as a fixer in 2003, gutted it to the studs and lovingly brought it to where it is now. I hope you enjoy.
No cigarette smoking on property.

We had a wonderful time in this gem of a Victorian cottage. It had everything we could want. Modern stove and fridge. Stayed wonderfully cool all day, with no need far A/C. Very quiet spot, but close to several state parks and beaches. Highly recommended and would be happy to return.
A little austere and quirky
Sitting on the front porch was fantastic and the easy walk to town was appreciated. Three wishes for the interior: More natural light (sky lights/light tubes would be lovely), reading lamps by the couch (it was just a little too dark for these old eyes), and towel racks in the bathroom.
Rural, peaceful, hillside cottage with a great kitchen, chickens next door, a porch, foxgloves along path to creek, and no stress.
Perfect quiet getaway
Absolutely gorgeous location among the trees, wonderful garden, quiet porch to relax on. Comfortable couch and bed, great kitchen. Wifi was definitely spotty like someone mentioned, which I didn't think would be an issue but there is no cellular service out there in the middle of the woods. It was good enough for quick searches and such though, so not a big deal. Location was very convenient for hiking in the redwoods and about a 30 minute drive down a fun windy road to Santa Cruz. It felt like home, will stay there again if we're out that way!
I am sorry to hear the wifi wasn't working for you. I wish you would have asked me for help. Occasionally it is a Verizon or Comcast issue on a larger level, but often people are using the wrong one for some reason, even though it is specified in the Guest Book onsite and email communications.
My Home Away From Home
This place as soon as you arrive it’s totally Zen. Not cluttered. You can prepare gourmet meals on the Beautiful stove and all of the utensils needed. The bed is comfortable and there are all of the amenities of home. I have stayed twice and for nice long periods of time. Very comfortable and safe for any woman traveling alone. There are always snacks and good quality teas and coffee on hand to welcome you. This is my go to home whenever I visit Santa Cruz boulder creek area.
