My daughter and I wanted a girls' weekend away, but not too far away (she lives in San Ramon). This fit the bill! It was a great location with lots to do within a short drive (hikes, Napa, fun activities, good restaurants etc.), and the studio is much larger than we expected. It had everything you could want/need, is very quiet, and Mark and Judi are very accomodating! We had a great weekend! Thank you, Mark and Judi!
There was a perfect amount of space for three people. Super clean, open, and bright. Waking up to the view of the valley every morning was fantastic. Great hosts that wanted their guests to be prepared to hike with refillable bottles in the kitchen along with other amenities. A HUGE binder full of recommendations (that you should take) for food, adventures, and coffee shops. We absolutely loved this place, and would definitely stay again.
Had the best week visit here! Everything is as advertised! Incredible views, fabulous hiking, comfy bed, terrific kitchen, very well stocked studio, every necessity you could imagine at your fingertips! And Mark was a terrific host too! It's a little farther from downtown then indicated by the circle on the listing, but well worth the extra little bit of a drive for all it has to offer!
Superb view—a very relaxing stay
This is a lovely studio with a stunning view (pro tip: bring binoculars). Judi & Marc are gracious hosts and left us to ourselves, as we were visiting a place we used to live so needed no recommendations.
The hot tub was very relaxing. The full kitchen allowed us to save money (and linger over coffee) by cooking our own breakfast most mornings.
There is also a beautiful trail system just steps away at the top of the hill—again those binoculars!
If you want a relaxing place to yourself with plenty of trail walking, this is your go-to!
In One Word - Wow!
We stayed four nights in this awesome property, which is in a great location for San Francisco, wine country, and the redwoods! This studio was very clean and very spacious, with a full kitchen, a large bathroom, a very comfortable bed, and a really nice sitting area. We will absolutely stay here again when we go back to the Bay area. Just a short way up the street is the entrance to a beautiful open space with several trails and very nice views - great for walking and jogging. The studio itself also has beautiful views towards the Bay. Mark met us at check-in and gave us a very helpful tour of the place, and then made himself available if we needed anything (which we didn't). San Rafael is a really neat little city. Groceries, coffee, and restaurants are all very nearby. Parking was available and no problem at all. Thanks Mark and Judi for a wonderful place to stay! We loved it!
Great place with great owners!
We feel like we won the lottery when we stayed here. LOTS of character, amazing views, comfortable beds and friendly owners who were around if you needed them. Everyone who visited wanted to know how we got such a great place. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this little gem!
Biking (mountain biking was 'invented' on Mt. Tam). Many hiking, biking/hiking trails within 100 feet of the unit.
