This cozy studio is surrounded by redwood trees and a paved terraced garden. Very light with a full kitchen including a gas stove, microwave, toaster, blender, electric tea kettle, refrigerator. Very comfortable queen size bed. We just installed a lovely merino wool carpet and the unit is newly painted. It is located within walking distance of a great grocery store, College of Marin and there are many wonderful restaurants close by. The garden is yours to use at your leisure; surrounded by redwood trees and a view of Mount Tam. There are biking and hiking trails nearby, a movie theater and the Marin Art and Garden Center. Only 5 minutes from the freeway and 20 minutes from the Golden Gate Bridge, and usually 10 to 20 degrees warmer than San Francisco, Sausalito and Mill Valley. If you want a to stay in the Bay Area and avoid the fog, this is the place to be especially if you are interested in exploring Napa, Sonoma and the coastal areas like Stinson Beach and Point Reyes.

About France Israel
I am a native San Franciscan and new to Kentfield. My son and I live in the house attached to the studio. I work from home and am available to answer any questions, and help in any way I can to make your stay pleasant and comfortable.
Why France Israel chose Kentfield
I love light and being surrounded by nature. The redwood grove in the garden is unique and I never tire of the view of Mount Tamalpais.
What makes this Studio unique
We just love this area of Marin. It is warm and quiet and the view of Mount Tam never ceases to make my day. I hike or ride my bike almost every day right from the front door. Unlike San Francisco, parking is plentiful. There are lots of good restaurants nearby and several movie theaters. We couldn't be happier in our new home and our new environment and we look forward to sharing the joy with our guests.

This was the perfect property for us.
A lovely studio flat, well equipped, cosy but spacious enough, a charming and helpful owner and for us set in just the area we needed to give us access to all our friends and family who live in Marin, Napa and San Francisco. Absolutely perfect.
We stayed for 16 nights and would certainly return as we conme regularly to Marin from London.
We did find the booking process unnecessarily arduous, we had to make many phone calls to what sound like the far east, but in the end it was brilliant.
We should mention that we have friends who also live in San Francisco which meant that being near the Larkspur ferry was a HUGE bonus as we never had to drive into the city.

Our stay here was one of the most delightful that we have had in our travels. The studio is very clean, comfortable, and magically nestled in next to several redwood trees and other lovely foliage. France, the owner, is a very welcoming hostess and we enjoyed many interesting and informative conversations with her. The location is quiet and conveniently located to many activities in Marin County. We would definitely stay here again in the future!
Thank you Mary Jo and Gary. I was thinking of you last night as I was eating fresh spring rolls and curry chicken from Rnothai! I hope you arrived home safely. I will be in touch soon.
We enjoyed and very much appreciated our VRBO as it is spotless, completely equipped and quiet.
Our Hostess, France, was readily available to answer any questions we had about our location and amenities.
We will return.
