My husband and I left Kathleen's studio (reluctantly!) feeling energized and restored. We've never met a warmer, more caring AirBnB host than Kathleen. She not only created a beautiful, peaceful environment, but was also an amazing conversationalist and source of encouragement. When we came to the house with fresh oysters but no shucking knife, she brought out a dozen different tools and kitchen implements to help us get them open! We loved starting each day in her kitchen, enjoying a delicious breakfast and terrific conversation. My husband and I travel a lot, and this was one of the best AirBnB experiences we've ever had. We're determined to come back!
Staying with Kathleen was perfect. The garden studio is the perfect little getaway in fairfax. It's close to the downtown area, the surrounding backyard is beautiful to wake up to. Kathleen made us breakfast and made sure we had all we needed. The bed was so comfortable and she even left us chocolates. There was a heater too, which was necessary because it's a little cold here in January. Overall, wonderful experience.
Kathleen's home was so beautiful and peaceful. It was the perfect spot to stay during thanksgiving to rest and recharge in between family time. The room was clean, bright, open and calming. The yard was beautiful with a little hammock nestled alongside a stand of redwoods. Kathleen made a good healthy breakfast for us each morning along with a great tea selection :) thanks for the welcome Kathleen! Hope to see you again one of these days.
Kathleen provided a lovely, warm environment at her home. She was gracious enough to prepare a fresh fruit and oats breakfast as well. The studio is bright and comfortable and the garden provides some fresh air and outdoor seating - reading in the hammock is a must. The location felt safe and is very close to the amenities in the adorable town of Fairfax. Make sure you leave some time to explore the shops and restaurants. Biking and hiking right out the back door! Kathleen was also gracious enough to be flexible with our timing and requests.
The house is located in a very nice and safe neighborhood. Kathleen is also a very nice person--she always tries her best to help you. I love the yard as well as the indoor decoration. Enjoy my stay here a lot. Highly recommended.
We spent 3 nights in Kathleen's peaceful, quiet studio surrounded by her lush yard and garden. The town of Fairfax felt very safe, and we were charmed by its walkability and laid back energy. It was easy to get to everywhere we wanted to go, including the national seashore. The winding drive through the redwoods to get to the ocean was magnificent! Kathleen was helpful, giving us suggestions and directions to enhance our visit. She was both warm and respectful of our privacy. The bed was amazingly comfortable. We slept very well. The main shared bathroom was exceptionally clean, with excellent water pressure in the shower. I highly recommend Kathleen's studio, especially for an individual or couple wanting a serene getaway.
