"My sister in law and I had a relaxing stay at our home away from home. Ed & Birgitta were so welcoming and down to earth people. This San Rafael property is the perfect place because it is close enough to go into San Francisco or to Napa Valley in a short amount of time but when you are done with the crowds in the city you can come back to the house and it is peaceful and quiet. The pictures on the site don't do justice to the gardens around the property and the peacefulness you will find there. It is only a 15-20 min drive to cross the Golden Gate Bridge into San Francisco, a 25 minute drive to Union Square and Pier 39, a 5 minute drive to the Ferry at Larkspur Landing, a 4 minute drive to 4th street in San Rafael where there is some great food places and boutiques to shop in. Birgitta even recommended "Francis Nails" to us in San Rafael for manicures and pedicures and she was spot on! We got Mani's and Pedi's and were there almost 2 hours, they didn't rush us through, just pampered us and did a great job! Also, if you have celiacs or are gluten intolerant.....go into a restaurant and ask if they have items because I found that lots of places aren't listed on urpanspoon.com for example but lots of places were very educated, friendly and helpful about fixing something for me to eat. Another place that is great to see is Fort Baker. Just take the Sausalito exit and drive through the picturesque downtown area of Sausalito, stop for a meal, then meander on through the hills to Fort Baker. There is a wonderful view of the bridge from there and you will be right on the water below the bridge! Gorgeous!"

"My husband and I stayed in this beautiful bungalow recently. We loved every minute of our stay. The property is well located for exploring the Napa Valley. The nearby town of St. Helena is a delight and we especially enjoyed our lunches at the Model Bakery, the Farmstead and the Market. The local grocery store is well stocked with everything one might need. The bungalow itself is set on its own grounds on Spring Mountain. It is very peaceful and tranquil and ideal for those who wish to get away from it all. There are a number of wineries within walking distance. We visited the Pride family winery. The bungalow is extremely well furnished. The open plan kitchen/dining/living room area is a large, bright area with access to the decking. The kitchen is a chef's delight. The owners, Tim and Missy live near by and are on hand if required. They are very hospitable and also knowledge about the area. We were sorry to leave and hope to return in the future."

"The perfect home for our little girl's weekend get-away. We absolutely loved the aesthetic and the simple zero-waste lifestyle this family lives by. All of us are professional photographers so this home was an absolutely dream to be in! The most gorgeous light and the area was wonderful as well. I would definitely come back to this home in future!"

"The Riverwest cabin is a magnificent vacation experience. We try to come up every year for some relaxation and family fun. There is so many things to do for everyone young and old: kayak, hike in the near by redwoods, go to the beach and visiting local resturants. The scenery is beautiful, it's so calming to sit on the decks and watch the sun set in the evenings."
