More to be desired....
The house was charming in a good location. Unfortunately the cleanliness was just mediocre. One of the bedrooms was very cold no matter how much we turned the heat up. Couldn’t get the WiFi to work during our stay or the tv in the bedroom.
Good deal for a good location.
A pleasant and spacious home with comfortable beds. The house felt homey and I would have liked to have more time to just relax and get comfortable. It was nicely decorated without feeling stuffy or overdone. The spaces were clean. The kitchen was nice for cooking in. I'd definitely stay here again.
An Unfortunate Six Night Stay in San Rafael
Much to my chagrin the "Sunny San Rafael 2 bed 2 bath.." did not live up to its description. Based on the photographs included with the VRBO information, my husband and I plus our two Canadian friends expected to be living in tidy quarters with a well-kept yard. This was not the case.
The yard was in need of a good cleaning. Broken pottery, broken screens, dirty gloves, to name a few items, were laying about. Plants were sadly lacking care. The table described as a wonderful spot from which to enjoy the yard and outdoors was in the midst of the mess... certainly not a peaceful spot to enjoy. The entry via the front door did not look at all as picturesque as the photo.
The owner left a message that we could drop off our luggage before the cleaning was done. That was a mistake, for the place was a mess! After a good cleaning things appeared a bit better.
A building code in most areas for the inhabitant's health, safety and welfare-neither smoke alarms nor a carbon monoxide detector could be located among the many very dusty cords and wires!
The Direction & Suggestion Manuel was 4yrs out of date. Included Wi-Fi instructions were not accurate. Finally someone was sent to assist with this issue.
The tv in the front room did not work. This took several days to repair. The tv in the larger bedroom was nonfunctioning and should have been replaced.
The front bedroom lacked a dresser and there was very little closet space due to storage of a roll-away bed. The cupboards in the larger bedroom needed a good scrubbing.
The basement laundry was filthy - dirt & clutter everywhere. At least the machines worked.
The four of us rated our stay with a mere one star. We wouldn't recommend the property to anyone. What could have been a charming spot was quite lacking in care from top to bottom.
Extremely disappointed renters......
Nice price, home, neighborhood, walk to downtown.
Explored Angel island. Hiked mt tam. Enjoyed downtown San Rafael. All from a nice home in a quiet neighborhood.
We enjoyed our stay!
We had a great experience at the home. We had everything we needed! Loved the location only 30 minutes from San Francisco.
This unit is in central San Rafael, Marin County, 30 mins to SF, 45 mins to Sonoma and Napa counties (wine country), 40 mins to coastal beaches (Stinson, Bolinas, and many more), 15 mins to Mt. Tamalpias (biking, hiking) and 3-4 hours to Lake Tahoe (water sports, skiing).
