About Rachel Percival

My husband and I moved to Marin County from England in 2009. We purchased our dream home in 2016. We live in the main house above with our 2 cats, Milou and Molly. We have been restoring the guest apartment and during the renovation found 5 coins. We decided to call the apartment Five Pennies.

Rachel Percival purchased this guest house in 2016

Why Rachel Percival chose Tiburon

The guest apartment is completely self contained and private. Keil Cove is very sheltered and it can be warm and sunny when other parts of the town are buffeted by the wind. We are on a very quiet one way street and just one house back from the water. The views are very special and it is a beautiful spot to relax and unwind.

Wonderful in every way!

  • 5 of 5

Our generous hosts, Rachel and Duncan, named their spot "5 Pennies", but it was worth a $1,000,000 to us. The apartment is roomy, comfortable, freshly renovated. The view is fantastic; the location, superb. We're already planning our return trip...

Peaceful Five Pennies

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is such a great find! It was spotlessly clean and very private. The view of The Bay and Racoon Straits from the deck and living room was wonderful and relaxing, especially as the sun came up over the East Bay hills. It is a beautiful mile walk to Tiburon including all the restaurants and coffee shops. I hope to return soon.

Thanks Rachel.

Incredible Get-Away

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was perfect for a couple's get-away!

We were looking to spend a couple of days relaxing and enjoying the city.

This apartment was so incredible, we never even made it to the city!

With its large deck, we were mesmerized by the views from sunrise to sunset.

While we could have easily taken the ferry to the city, we chose instead to explore downtown Tiburon, Sausalito and, of course, the Golden Gate!

Truly a "Picture-Perfect" vacation.

Thank you, Rachel and Duncan, for sharing this gem with us!

This is a faulous get away!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful, clean, quaint place to get away to, with a very gracious host! We enjoyed the beautiful water views, listening to the sea life below us and our view of the harbor of Angle Island! We enjoyed the easy bike ride to catch the ferry to the island and to the city! This is a wonderful, peaceful getaway!

Sunny treasure of a place with magnificent views

  • 5 of 5

We couldn’t have enjoyed our week in this lovely place more. Our thrill every morning was sitting in the well appointed, simply furnished living room and watching the sun rise over the water. Rachel is a thoughtful, gracious host who has thought of every detail for her guests, from providing a bottle of wine, coffee and cream for our first morning breakfast, to lots of information about the many day trips one can take from Tiberon, both to the city as well as hiking trails and other recreational delights. We loved the walk to town in the morning. The apartment itself is modestly furnished with comfortable furniture, including the bed, with thoughtful touches everywhere like the cozy throw on the couch. But we admit it was hard to leave the apartment every day because of the joy of taking in the views, listening to the birds, and enjoying the tranquility of this spot from the deck. This is one of the best rentals we’ve ever had on VRBO! Thank you so much Rachel, for sharing this magnificent place with others.
