Kentfield Haven - Adorable and Cozy Studio

Bedrooms 1
Property type studio
Minimum Stay 3 nights


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 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.

Very happy to stay here

  • 4 of 5

Everything is as described, the rooms are meticulously prepared for one or two guests. Central Marin location is really ideal. France is always available but never intrusive.

Relax in the Redwoods

  • 5 of 5

Kentfield Haven is tucked away on a quiet, residential street but just minutes from a bustling community.

The owner has done a great job of outfitting the space with creature comforts that are just right for a traveler. This includes a well-equipped kitchen, should you care to cook.

Access to Marin cities is very easy and the Larkspur Ferry Terminal is a quick trip that sets you up to head into the city on a short boat ride.

We'll make this our go-to place when we next return.
