Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: We love hiking, biking, and kayaking in beautiful places. And we're big fans of kind, ecologically-minded people, and delicious, fresh, local food. This makes us a good match for each other and for Point Reyes. We met in graduate school at UC Berkeley studying energy efficiency and renewable energy, and got married in Point Reyes in 2011. We live in Oakland, which is known as 'over the hill' to our West Marin friends.
