Property description

23 Dec 2015 - 05 Jan 2016

22 Jun 2016 - 08 Aug 2016 (minimum 1 week rentals over this period - discounts for longer stays)

Down the road from Fairfax and San Anselmo, this is a gem of an artists' home, charming, sparkling and sunny in a wonderful part of Northern California, just 30 minutes from the Golden Gate Bridge, doorstep into San Francisco.

The house has white wooden floorboards throughout, stunning views, large heated pool (36ft), and very lovely hot-tub nestling in the oaks. You can't help but feel happy here, a home from home. We're surrounded by trees so the house is exceptionally quiet and private. In the summer, it is very hard to leave the house which feels like a mini-resort - the feel and aesthetic is that of a beach house on a hillside:) We have sun all day, all summer long as we are in a micro-climate (so we have sun while San Francisco is covered in fog).

On our doorstep is the Open-Space of Marin, famous for hiking & mountain-biking. 45 mins from the gorgeous beaches of Stinson & Pt. Reyes National Park, half an hour to the Golden Gate bridge, 1hr from Napa Valley and 5 mins from downtown Fairfax & San Anselmo. It's a perfect place to have as a base for exploring the region, or as an escape from San Francisco. Best suited for a family with 2-4 kids, or a couple (we're not renting it as a party home).

Fully equipped kitchen and sunny outdoor living, with big family table on deck overlooking pool and valley below.
