House is located in residential neighborhood in Domingo Canyon, Novato, with rolling hills all around and lots of biking and walking trails (see the map). Also within close proximity to grocery shopping (Safeway and Paradise super market) and restaurant, Boca Steakhouse and Boca Pizzeria (both are highly recommended). House is within walking distance to Hoog Park, which has playground structure for children. Neighborhood is quiet and very safe, with a family-friendly atmosphere. Enjoy direct access onto Domingo Canyon Open Space Ridge that provides great views of the surrounding hills, Bel Marin Keys, Petaluma River and the bay. Enjoy surrounding nature while still being centrally located in beautiful Marin County. Marin is a large, forested region adjacent to the Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco to the South, and Napa and Sonoma Counties (aka “Wine Country”) to the East; arrive at these top tourist destinations by car in just a 30-40 minute drive.
Other Activities: some of my most favorite things to do are:
wine tasting in Sonoma or Napa. Taking a Limo to wine tasting regions are safe options (no driving). There is good shopping in Corte Madera. Kayaking, Boating in Sausalito harbor. Going to Larkspur Ferry Station (8 miles from the house) and taking the ferry to San Francisco and going shopping, sightseeing or simply walking around downtown. Also there are ample Wildlife Viewing, Rock Climbing, Health/Beauty Spa, Hot Air Ballooning in Napa, ice skating (Santa Rosa)and more

Please contact them well in advance of your arrival to make sure you can get on your desired course.
Ski: The closest ski resort is Sugar Bowl Ski Resort (near lake Tahoe) which is ~ 170 miles from the house. It can be done in one day, provided you leave early in the morning (5 AM) and hit the slopes at 9-10 AM and return at 5 and arrive back home around 9 PM.
