Daughter's Wedding

  • 5 of 5

Owner was extremely easy to work with. This is a prime location in San Rafael very close to all services you could want on a vacation. There were six of us and there was plenty of space for all. It was very clean and well appointed.

This is like living in your own house...there isn't anything you would need that isn't there.

Highly recommend.

We spent a wonderful xmas 2013 here and can highly recommend it.We have 3 children and my parents in law were also with us. There is plenty of space for the whole family to relax and we even cooked up a traditional xmas dinner. easy reach to the city via road and ferry snd we ventured noth to the wineries and south to the local red wood forests. great memories.

Convenient, comfortable, and very clean

  • 5 of 5

We loved the location of this house -- within walking distance of downtown San Rafael and close to several bike routes, which made it easy for our family of 5 to do different things and share one car. The house had plenty of room for us, was super clean and tidy, and was comfortably and tastefully furnished. We especially enjoyed the spacious, well-equipped kitchen, the sun room, and the private fenced in yard and garden. The hosts were flexible in accommodating our schedule and had everything organized and set up for us. I hope to stay here again if we're lucky enough to be back in the area!
