3 Bedroom, 3.5 Bathroom Home With Stunning Views Of Marin, SF, And San Pablo Bay


Our home is atop a hillside in a residential neighborhood overlooking “Sleepy Hollow” in San Anselmo, Ca. Sensational panoramas from two levels of back decks feature views of the San Francisco skyline, Berkeley, Oakland, Richmond Bridge, and San Pablo Bay. (please see the view video at the tail end of the photos display) The home is conveniently situated between wine country (NAPA and Sonoma) and San Francisco (23 miles away). Muir Woods, Stinson Beach , and Sausalito are also a short drive away.

Surrounded by hundreds of acres of Marin County 'open land', our driveway leads to walking trails with 360 circular views. The house has 3 levels: upstairs is the Master bedroom suite(king), there is a guest room(queen) and bathroom on the main level, and another large bedroom(king) and bathroom on the lower level with easy access to the hot tub on the lower level deck. The kitchen is newly renovated, and oversees a stunning garden with fruit trees that will be bearing fruit in the summer months.

This home is perfect for someone who is renovating their own home or is looking to spend the summer experiencing the wonders of the San Francisco Bay Area. This is our primary home and we love it. So, we are interested in renting only to those who will want to keep very good care of it while we are gone. Please do not inquire about renting our property if you are not interested in a minimum one month stay (much preferably two or more months). Please call us directly to communicate about a potential booking (415-860-2791).

About Barry and Kaye Briggs

We have a home in Massachusetts that we go to in the summer time so that is why we are renting our primary home for the summer months. We have 3 grown children who all live in Marin and can help with any questions or issues while we are away.

Barry and Kaye Briggs purchased this House in 2011

                                                              Sensational views! Spacious, beautiful home!

                                                              We stayed in Barry and Kaye's lovely home for each of the last two summers - 2015 and 2016. Both times for the full 2-3 months. We couldn't believe our luck when we found the house online, yet it was even better in person. The views are incredible: of San Francisco and all the way around to the north bay. Almost 360 degrees and visible from throughout the house and garden. The house itself is really nice. The master bedroom, closets and bathroom are huge and nicely finished. The kitchen is amazing and a natural place to gravitate to. And the decks are very spacious - we ate out there with friends regularly. There are hiking trails leading off of the driveway, and the cute San Anselmo and eclectic Fairfax are both nearby. On top of all this, Kaye and Barry are wonderful hosts. Flexible, supportive and very friendly. We've stayed in numerous other short-term rentals. This house is right at the top of the list!

                                                              Don't miss the nicest home in Marin County!

                                                              Michael R.

                                                              Last year My wife and two teenage girls needed a long term vacation home while we looked for a more permanent place here in Marin County, CA. We found Barry and Kay's home at the last minute and stayed for 2 1/2 months while they were on the east coast. I should tell you that we have stayed in many nice places both on VRBO and through travel agents but this home made us feel like we WERE home.

                                                              From the meticulous cleaning done before we arrived to the big garage where we stored some of our belongings it was perfect. The pictures supplied of the view here are by and large an understatement of what you will experience in this home. High speed internet, lots of tech for the guys and a gourmet kitchen await. I know I'm starting to sound like a 'paid for' ad but jeez... it's true. On more than one occasion I asked the owners if they were interested in selling the house to us and they thoughtfully declined to answer.

                                                              I don't know what else to say other than I have given the owners permission to connect me directly with anyone that wants a first hand account of our experience. You will not go wrong and by the way, it's a $ deal. Michael

                                                              There is a refundable security deposit of $5,000. Utilities are included in the rental price however, use of water and air conditioning needs to be thoughtful and conservative. We will share our utility bills with the renter in advance, and discuss how to deal with any unreasonable overages, as a withholding from the security deposit.
