About the Property

Studio, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3)

Get out of the fog and into the sun. Enjoy the year-round mild climate and central location of San Rafael, with effortless access to San Francisco to the south (twenty-five minutes across the world famous Golden Gate Bridge), the spectacular wine country of Napa, Sonoma, and Alexander Valleys (forty minutes), and Berkeley (thirty minutes).

Easy access in and out of San Francisco by ferry, bus or car. Enjoy a full day in 'The City' and recharge your batteries (with a good night sleep and a soak in the hot tub) for a day of wine tasting in the Napa Valley.

Our home is located in a quiet, upscale neighborhood. This attached in-law unit features many amenities and unique privacy. Enjoy a semi-private swimming pool, hot tub, and deck, featuring nearly three-hundred-sixty-degree views of the Bay and Mt. Tamalpais. Less than fifty yards away is a hiking trail in a eucalyptus forest, with views of San Francisco in the distance.

Marin County offers beaches, golf, hiking, and biking. (Mountain biking was 'invented' on Mt. Tam.) Local scenery includes breathtaking vistas of Mount Tam, and the ancient redwood forests of Muir Woods, sightseeing in Sausalito and Tiburon, and much more. It features restaurants to fit every budget and culinary taste, as well as, excellent theatre, cinema, and shopping.

San Rafael, home of the 2nd most northern and oldest Catholic mission (founded 1817), also features a civic center designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and a refurbished art deco theater in a revitalized downtown.

Your genial and knowledgeable host and hostess will help with plans (if requested) to make your vacation memorable.

A perfect base from which to savor the best of Northern California!
