About the Property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

We, the Kaplan family, are looking for a nice, responsible family to rent our home for select dates! We have a roomy, kid friendly home, located in a water community with large backyard including garden, swings, trampoline, chicken coop, pool, dock, boat, 2 man kayak, and sandy beach on Novato creek with tikki torches! We are located in Novato California, ½ hour from beautiful San Francisco, the coast, Muir woods, and the Napa Valley! The house has four bedrooms (2 ½ bathrooms) which include 2 single beds, 1 double and 2 queen beds…there are three couches in the house and an elevated single inflatable bed that could be used for a larger group. Watch free Netflix movies on the home theater system or sing songs around our 1923 Ludwig baby grand piano. Or simply enjoy just relaxing and reflecting in our Christian home. We are definitely set up for people with kids…tons of toys, books, scooters, and bikes! We have great neighbors and could connect your family with locals to give you a non-touristy experience.

Key reasons why you would want to rent our home this summer~

· A convenient homey experience while on vacation!

· Less expensive.

· Lots of outdoor activities in the backyard...child’s zip line, chickens, organic flower garden, pool, basketball hoop, trampoline, beach, dock, boat, kayak, bikes and scooters!

· Close to San Francisco and many other beautiful places!

From SFO there is the Marin Airporter that leaves every 1/2 hour that can take you within 5 minutes to the house.

Hope to have you in our lovely home this summer….Sincerely, Stacey and Brian Kaplan
