Property description

If you are looking to enjoy Fairfax, look no further. We are 40 stairs up from the valley floor, giving you a beautiful view. Once down the stairs it is a flat easy walk downtown in minutes. Our land is rich in iron making it a magnetic pole. Indigenous people carved bowls into the rock ridge above us, as they sat crushing their Acorns, while enjoying the beautiful views of Ross Valley. (if you are nimble we will be happy to take you up the ridge to see these artifacts of the Miwok's)

Combining the best of a hillside view and the ease of being on the valley floor, enjoy your private Castle Villa. This is a fully furnished studio apt. which is the downstairs of our home. Furnished with a queen size bed, free WiFi, private bathroom, kitchenette, laundry, and private entrance. Retreat from the heat under our trees on the patio. (equipped with seating and a Weber grill)

Perfect for a lovers retreat, a peaceful zen weekend, or a jumping spot to downtown's hopping music scene, or some of the best biking and hiking in the Bay Area. Mid-way between Napa/Sonoma and SF it is also great for traveling to wine-country, or heading into the city by the bay. Our weather here in Fairfax is much better then anywhere else, guaranteed! No fog like SF, and a micro-climate that keeps us around 72degrees. Sun and blue skies almost every day. The beach is also only a 10mile drive through the hills to catch the perfect set. Or just do some beachcombing and enjoy a sunrise or sunset. We can also make some extra storage room for your surf board.

One block away is the bus-stop, cabs are available and San Rafael 2.5mi away has car rentals.

We are definitely animal lovers, and thus, are pet friendly. We do ask for an added security deposit and nightly fee. We have an outdoor fenced area, and the ability to dog sit for you, if you want to go on a extended adventure. We love your pets!

We understand the desire for privacy and security in a rental. We are a young couple who love to travel ourselves. We are more than happy to chat and offer knowledge of the local food, amenities, or driving directions. But, if you just want your keys and then not hear from us till you leave, we get it and that is good too. You have a separate entrance, with separate keys and a deadbolt. Your entrance does come in through our laundry room, but we will take every step to make sure not to be a disturbance. You are also welcome to use our new washer, but please be nice to it. It is our only new appliance.

If you are with us for an extended stay we are happy to clean the sheets and the room during your stay. We prefer to do the dishes for you!

Hope to see you soon!
