"I was attending a wedding in Sausalito and really lucked into this very sweet studio for 3 nights. The owner was there when I arrived and gave me parking tips and actually arranged transportation to the airport with me for my departure, which I was a little concerned about. The studio was quiet, even more lovely that advertised, and just minutes from great shopping. Best of all, only 5 minutes from Sausalito. I hope I have the opportunity to return!"

"This is such a perfect place for exploring and discovery.
Outside: The views, The sun, The breeze, The shadows, The jays, The fawns and The fox!
Inside: Kathleen and Richard's art, the windows, the comfortable furniture, the books, the kitchenware - who knew about a "clam ram" before and the treasures from lives well traveled.
We have been to Point Reyes many, many times, and our first stay at Artist Retreat reminds us that there is always so much new to learn.
Thank you Kathleen and Richard, your artistry and generosity are extraordinary.
We look forward to returning soon!"

"The house is beautiful and the lot is tree-filled and serene. This was a perfect place for me, my husband, our two boys, and our two dogs. We only left the house twice in nine days! We will definitely be back."

"I had family in town for our sons UCSC graduation and this house could not have been a better fit! I was blown away by the location and views. The house is spacious and beautiful. The large kitchen over looking the ocean is stocked with every utensil and gadget you would need when cooking for a large family. The decks are epic. We grilled burgers while watching whales breaching. The bedrooms are roomy and accommodating. The master bedroom is HUGE and has a large and beautiful bathroom. There are views of the ocean from every room. We saw dolphins and whales while eating breakfast every morning. The ocean is just steps away. The house is located on a dead end and quiet gated street. Other families vacationing in the community were very friendly and having a great time in Aptos as well.
We also discovered really great grocery stores, restaurants and cafes in town. The state park down the street is lively with volleyball nets and fire pits. And we took some great walks down to the USS Palo Alto and pier.
Diana was a very kind and accommodating hostess who I enjoyed very much chatting with on the phone while discussing the house details. I highly recommend Kirk and Diana’s home as a vacation destination! And I look forward to the next time I can bring my family back!"
