One guest called it his long skinny house.
Named the Secret Garden Art Villa because of a writer who felt he was in his own secret garden while he was here.
In the photos it looks like a garage door in the living room but it's a wall of cabinets filled with art supplies. At one time I taught people how to paint on porcelain. While I am busy with life and do not have time to paint I have turned it into a guest cottage. You have the joy of living in this personal artist's retreat. Hand painted porcelains in the hutch in the bedroom and paintings beneath the copper ceiling on the patio. One of a kind. Unique.
It appeals to those tired of corporate cookie cutter condos. There are no adjoining walls here. It is in a world of it's own on this large property.
Main estate pool within a short walk just open your back door and walk up your back sidewalk 125 feet to the main Estate. Perfect place to catch the sun and enjoy pool side. There is also cactus aquatic center one block away .They have lap swimming in a heated pool. It's a wonderful place and they also have a weight room downstairs that is pay by the day. Health clubs nearby.
Cruiser bikes come with this house. Just ask.

About Diane Gray
My son and I at the pool. My daughter lives in Brooklyn New York. I am a friendly lady originally from Iowa and Nebraska. I give my guests complete privacy and would never go through their gate or knock on their door. Midwestern hospitality is important to me and I want everyone that stays on my Estate to enjoy this beautiful property. I am truly blessed to have met so many wonderful people who have enjoyed the unique spaces. My guests are all smiles and they enjoy them too.
Why Diane Gray chose Via De Caballos
I bought this piece of land in 1974 and watched the area unfold around me. I think it is the best location because it is half way between the 101 and the highway 51. Half way between Old Town and Kierland Commons. I love this peaceful spot that is minutes from events at West World on a quiet Estate property. It is an Upscale neighborhood of safety and peace.
What makes this Cottage unique
It looks like country France on the property I have been told. It is not a stiff cookie cutter corporate rental. It is quirky and artzy in every way. From the winding entrance sidewalk to the sweet patio. It is an enfolding interesting place with charm. Kept clean and beautiful.

Quirky, but comfortable.
Initially, I wasn't so sure about the cottage. It was very "quirky" given the layout and all the ceramics and "stuff" around. But knowing it was an art studio turned cottage, I can understand the decor. However, after the first night and by the second day, it became cozy and comfortable. The washer and dryer in the cottage didn't work, but we had access to another set in the common courtyard area. The swimming pool wasn't heated so we did not use the pool. However, the owner "tuned" up her mountain bicycle and provided me a helmet so I could go on some daily rides for exercise. The location was very convenient to shopping, restaurants, etc. The patio was very private and the owner bought two new chaise lounges for us to use. We did spend quite a bit of time "catching rays" in the patio. Overall the cottage was ok, but I felt it was overpriced. I'm sorry, but I wouldn't go back to this VRBO.
