About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2

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 San Francisco Bay Area

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.

A cozy get away in Kentfield

  • 5 of 5

"Haven" is the perfect word for this cozy, quiet and well appointed rental in Kentfield. The space is so well designed it felt like a small apartment with a lovely well stocked kitchen looking out on redwoods and beautiful landscaping. The bedroom/living area was roomy with lots of natural light and the bathroom was modern and along with the rest of the space, impeccably clean. The bed and pillows were extremely comfortable. I loved meeting the owner France and would highly recommend this rental.

Well located and accommodations very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in Kentfield for 10 days. France is a very accommodating and hospitable host. The studio apartment was very clean and very comfortable. We had everything we needed. The property is gorgeous, with the redwood trees and the palm trees and the gardens! We liked that it was very close to San Anselmo, Bon Air, Larkspur and the 101. If you are in the area, you would be well served to consider this accommodation.

Haven in the redwoods

  • 5 of 5

I rented the "Kentfield Haven" for three weeks, late October to mid November. It is a clean, light-filled, cozy studio surrounded by ancient redwoods. This location proved to be exceptionally convenient to walking and bicycling ( and to accessing Hwy 101). The studio is a five minute walk to College of Marin and another few minutes to Woodlands market and cafe, and an awesome Thai restaurant (and this proved to be a huge advantage if you don't want to spend precious vacation time driving/parking). Another bonus is the walking/running path along the local creek/tidal slough and the birdlife! The studio had everything I needed to aid me in my goal of unwinding from the world of urban overload. The studio has a kitchen which I found just right for cooking evening meals and the close proximity of the local grocery store a bonus. France was a great host, providing everything I needed. The next time I need a Marin accommodation, I will be coming back to the haven in the redwoods.

Great small apartment

  • 4 of 5

A very nice, clean unit. It was well stocked with all the basic needs. Really cute. Small kitchen with fridge, stove, microwave and dishes, pans and silverware. Coffee pot, filters and Peets coffee were provided as well as a variety of tea and sweeteners. Nice shower in the really nice bathroom. The living area had a desk and chair, rocker, bed and tv. We were very comfortable. Great location close enough to drive to attractions and ball games but far enough to be quiet and restful. The only issue is lack of insulation between the house upstairs and the apartment. We could hear walking around and shuffling around of shoes. So if you are a light sleeper it would be an issue. The owner is very nice and accommodating.

Comfortable and Welcoming

  • 5 of 5

France was an excellent hostess. We enjoyed our stay. The studio was just as advertised. Great place for us to stay when visiting our family in the area. France also provided us with suggestions for grocery stores and walking areas. Definitely hope to return soon.
