"My wife and I and our 12-year old daughter truly enjoyed our 3 night stay at this serene retreat filled with amazing photos, paintings, and books by the house owners-artists. Even though their house/art studio is on the same property, it is totally out of the sight from within the rental house, and the only sounds we could hear were birds singing, the wonderful audio system, and the sound of silence. Urban/suburbon it's NOT. The weather was gorgeous and we happily explored Pt. Reyes trails and beaches for hours every day. The house is very spacious, bright, and tastefully decorated with a view from the top of the hill. Richard and Kathleen are very warm, friendly, and knowledgeable hosts and were kind and generous to us with their time and helpful insights about this marvelous area."

"Highly recommend! We truly enjoyed everything about this place and wish that we could have stayed longer. Jeff, the owner, was extremely helpful. The beds were so comfortable and the large bath towels very nice. This unit is equipped with so many appreciated extras - too many to list. We had plenty of space for the 5 of us (my husband and I & 3 kids). We really enjoyed the view while having drinks on the rooftop in the evening. We watched movies with the kids from the dvd library as well as played board games that Jeff so nicely provided.
The location can't be beat! We walked a block or so to a market to pick up misc. items like drinks, breakfast foods, snacks, etc. During our stay, we walked to the Fisherman's Wharf, Coit Tower, and to nearby restaurants. Parking in San Francisco is very limited, so it was nice that we were within walking distance to so many places. We dined at the nearby Tony's Pizza. There is also a Walgreen's Pharmacy close by.
We purchased tickets for the hop on hop off bus and used it for the night sightseeing tour, the Sausalito and Muir Woods tours. Also, highly recommend the Alcatraz tour. We walked to Fisherman's Wharf and Ghiradelli Square, and took the Muni bus to Union Square and Alamo Square Park to see the Painted Ladies. Rented a car and visited Napa for a day.
Thanks again Jeff for a wonderful stay."

Magnificent Place for a Celebration and/or Wine Tasting
"It is hard to imagine how elegantly furnished and beautifully decorated this house is from looking at the photos. Its spaciousness as well as cozy spaces for small groups to have an intimate conversation makes it perfect for a family get-together or any type of party. The extensive file of maps and recommended places to go was very useful. We found this VRBO rental to be an excellent location for wine tasting in the immediate area and more particularly in the Dry Creek Valley area where the wines are vinted in the manner of Loire Valley wines in France. We second everything the other reviewers have said about its amazingly complete stocks, equipment, and helpful owner."

"The Ocean Star house was everything we could have hoped for and more. The location was perfect and beautiful, and the house was exactly the way the pictures depicted. We enjoyed having the windows open to enjoy the ocean breeze, spending time in the hot tub and taking walks on the many trails right out the front door of the house. The wildlife was amazing - the first time our dog has seen a deer! We definitely recommend the Ocean Star house and will be booking another stay in the future."
