  • What a view

    "The owners were so polite and things were so wonderful. We stayed for a week and had a great time. Our son lives in San Rafael and it was only 25 minutes to his place. The valley road can get busy at times, but all stores and such are minutes away. Had plenty of room and would recommend this to anyone. There are lots of steps from the street down to the lower level so consider that. The view from the deck is awsome."

  • Lovely house with great pool!

    "First of all, the owners must keep that turtle float; we looked forward to relaxing on it every day after sightseeing. The private outdoor area (pool, hot tub, abundant seating, tree chair) is the best part, really another living area. The house itself is comfortable with a large kitchen, comfortable living room, and two decent sized bedrooms, although the child's bedroom is small. A nice luxury is that every bedroom has an attached bathroom. Unlike renting a family's vacation condo, it was a little awkward to live out of a suitcase (or off the floor) for a week because the closets and drawers are filled with the homeowners' clothes. Parallel parking in the driveway can be a challenge since there is little extra space off the windy canyon road and I was certainly glad that our rental car was no minivan; I have no idea where guests would park their cars and one has to be careful when walking on the windy street with no sidewalks. We enjoyed the restaurants and shops of Fairfax and of nearby St. Anselmo, and we also recommend strongly the Farmer's Market on Wednesdays and the Thai food restaurant in Fairfax. Although we never found the ferry to San Francisco, we did okay parking in the city as long as we just parked once and then hoofed it around for the rest of the day. We do recommend going to Muir Woods and wine country on weekdays if you hate crowds."

  • Perfect of the Georgia couples

    "What a wonderful property!! The view on the patio is just breathe taking and a great place to relax for the day. The house is very spacious for 6 people and equipped with everything you would need for your stay. Just a 40 minute drive to San Francisco Bay area and only 15 or 20 minutes to the redwood forest. The owner Jeff called to make sure all was well and if we needed anything. I would definitely recommend this rental property. Jeff thanks so much for sharing your beautiful home."
