What sets us apart from other vacation rentals in San Rafael is our quiet, scenic neighborhood that is close to the bay.It feels as if it is a blend of East Coast Maine with West Coast weather. It is a peaceful, semi rural area.We are close to a boat harbor as well as a small beach where you can launch canoes or kayaks. Our East San Rafael property is also surrounded by open land where you can hike, mountain bike or just enjoy walking around the bay. We are also near historic China Camp and McNears Beach picnicking site. If you want to get some small town feel, we are 2.5 miles away from the downtown area of San Rafael which has a restored, historic mission as well as cute shops and many restaurants. There is also a restored movie theatre that plays a significant role in the Mill Valley Film Festival. Also nearby is Dominican College that has hosted many prominent speakers, writers, politicians and actors.
Besides all of these highlights, we are literally walking distance from Andy's Market, an upscale full service market with an incredible deli and a finely curated wine selection.
Our property is a midway point for visiting the city of San Francisco, the wine counties of Napa and Sonoma, the lovely coastal route from Stinson Beach to Point Reyes and beyond to Bodega Bay. All can be done in one day travel.
Other Activities: We have had golfers, kayakers, hikers, sailers, and a myriad or those who enjoy the outdoors. We are very close to the Peacock Gap Country Club which does have day rates as well as McGuinnis Parkway Golf Center for those who just want to hit some golf balls or play a full round of golf.
Golf: We are near Peacock Gap Country Club and McGuiness Park, which is also a golf course is a bit further up the highway.
Ski: We are 3.5 hours from Truckee and Lake Tahoe ski resort.
Stand up Paddle Boarding and Kayaking is offered at 101 Surf Sports which is about a mile away from us. They even have lessons and you can rent from them as well.
Hiking on Mount Tam is a wonderful refreshing way to rejuvenate. There are easy, moderate and strenuous hikes depending on your preference and ability. You can also go hiking right outside of our rental. We have an open space area a few blocks from us and you can enjoy a peaceful morning walk.
Year Purchased: 1991
About: We came up to Marin County in 1991 and fell in love with its beauty. Both of us have been in the film and television industry and where Paul decided to retire, Elise continued to travel to Los Angeles and work on different film and television projects as a studio teacher. She has worked on some well known projects such as Full House, and many movies as well. We both are semi retired now and love to travel as well as welcome fellow travelers to our lovely area . Elise is a teacher in the film industry and Paul was an assistant director. He is now a writer and has written a novel called Night Fear. It can be found on Amazon! He is writing his second novel which is a sequel to Night Fear. There are 2 more on the horizon. Our alma maters our UCLA and Cal Berkeley!
Why San Rafael, CA, USA:
This neighborhood where our rental exists is truly unique. It is on the Bay side of a quaint area called 'Chicken Point' - perhaps because there might have been people raising chickens - which is a common happening here!- It is not far from central San Rafael and yet it feels rural enough to enjoy walks up in the hills and around the Bay. The architecture of our surrounding area is a mix of different styles. No cookie cutter look here. It reminds me of Topanga Canyon in Los Angeles, an area where I grew up and a mix of East Coast Maine. People here are very supportive and helpful and we find that this did not exist in larger towns and cities.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The style of our rental is a bit of New England. We have temperate weather due to the proximity to the Bay and since we are near a little beach, it is easy to put out a kayak or stand up paddle board. Also our neighbors are what makes the area wonderful - everyone loves where we live!!
