About the property

900 square feet, one bedroom with deck & sauna

An attractive setting with a view of San Francisco Bay and beyond, this wonderfully newly refurnished and comfortable one bedroom apartment is located in Larkspur.

better than staying in a hotel....

  • 5 of 5

this was the perfect solution for my 10 day stay in Larkspur. The location is close to shopping and major roads - and only 3 miles from my son's house. Great view, nicely furnished with all basic necessities. I am planning to return next time the family gets together and not everybody can be accommodated at my son's house.

Wonderful location, wonderful hosts, wonderful view, wonderful value

  • 5 of 5

When I return to the area, I can't imagine staying anyplace else.

This is a fabulous lower level (with deck) of a very nice house you are renting.

We were a bit surprised over the lack of window curtains in the non bedroom area - but hardly a negative in such a nice place.

Dedicated washer and dryer. There are stairs going down to the area but those weren't a concern for us.

Next time I'm bringing my mom so she can enjoy with us.

We had no surprises, no issues, and would stay and recommend (well, perhaps not to the point where it becomes so popular that we can't ever rent it again) ;)

Love it and love the owners too.

Absolutely wonderful!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here and had a wonderful time. REALLY enjoyed soaking up the view everyday of the bay! This place was an oasis to come back to everyday after sight seeing. Easy access to the freeway to go to San Fran or North to Sonoma or Napa! I cannot wait to come back, the owners were very friendly and helpful with any questions we asked. The vacation rental was beautifully decorated and well appointed with everything you could need during your stay. We were very comfortable and will hopefully be able to return again soon to this great place to stay by the bay!!!

The perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for about a week and it is an amazing place. The unit itself is bright, clean, updated, very spacious and comfortable. The view is spectacular, taking in the north bay, Tiburon peninsula and east bay with a lengthy deck to enjoy it from. Lionel and his wife (and their beautiful dog Zarra) were very friendly and welcoming. The location high up on a hill has very close access to Hwy. 101, Larkspur Ferry and Sir Francis Drake Blvd. the main conduit to West Marin. Highly recommended.

Comfortable, beautiful, and friendly owners

We stayed in this apartment for a week and enjoyed the experience tremendously. The apartment is clean, comfortable, the views are hypnotizing, and our communication with the owners was very pleasant.
