Great house, great location, great time!
Great house, great location, great time!
First of all, Patti could not more pleasurable person to have as your 'landlady'. Very efficient in terms of executing the contract and in keeping in contact. Based on that alone would I rent from Patti again. Also though, the house was in excellent condition when we rented it for a three day weekend and we had a very memorable time there. Our favorite area to congregate (there were 8 of us there for a staff retreat/Mill Valley Film Festival) was in the back near the pool. We absolutely loved the ambiance with the tiki torches, the seating areas, the fountains and, our favorite, the fire pit. Many a long night was spent relaxing by that fire pit. Inside was just as nice with plenty of bedrooms to choose from, nice and clean bathrooms and even a little 'apartment' area for our boss which was a little separated from the rest of the house. We were able to cook in the gorgeous kitchen and able to relax in the main living room. The location is great, only about a 10-15 minute drive into San Francisco, and we really liked the area. This house is perfect if you're looking for a 'home away from home' and Patti is the perfect person to make that happen. I would completely recommend staying there!

Owner response: Thank you so much, Kristin!! I'm really touched. I'm so excited you're coming back.
Our group had a wonderful time staying at this property. It was clean and spacious. The kids enjoyed the pool. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed to prepare meals. I loved the huge Master's bathroom! We felt at home and would definitely consider renting the house for another get-together with family & friends. Patti is so wonderful to deal with. She promptly answered all my questions. Thank you for making our event memorable.

Owner response: Anna, You are very swet. It was my pleasure. Come back any time!
We just stayed here this past weekend while in town visiting friends. This was the perfect hosue for us, with two busy boys and loads of friends in the area this is exactly what we needed to be able to catch up with great friends and let the kids play. The layout of the house is perfect, very spacious and inviting. We look forward to our next trip to Marin and won't consider staying anywhere else, we have now found our second home. Thanks Patti!

A great vacation house. My family (children and grandchildren) spent 5 days enjoying the pool, hot tub and trampoline. The house was spacious with everything you'd need to do as much cooking as desired. Also it is conveniently located to San Francisco and Napa. The owner was helpful in answering all of my questions. It's a great place to get away and relax.

I got married in Ross in Oct, 09 and my family stayed here for 5 days before & after the wedding. The house was great, big & clean. And my nieces and nephews had so much fun in the yard, on the trampoline & in the pool. Thanks!

Great house in a great location. We loved the open, light-filled interior and the patio, pool and enclosed gardens. Conveniently located in Marin, as well as close to San Francisco and wine country. The house worked beautifully for us.
