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 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.

The landscaping was a little overgrown, but the studio was immaculate and well appointed.

  • 4 of 5

I stayed at the haven while my husband was in nearby Kentfield Hospital. My stay was cut short when my husband was unexpectedly transferred so I never had a chance to meet my host. She was, however, good at staying in touch via phone and email. The haven was a quiet and restful spot to stay.

A gem in an ideal location with a super helpful landlady

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I spent 10.days in what was, for us, perfect accommodation. The studio apartment has been thoughtfully planned and furnished. The large windows all have gorgeous views of the garden, redwood trees and even Mt. Tamalpais from the kitchen window) and make the apartment light and bright. The carpet is reasonably new and the apartment is impeccably clean. The kitchen has the basic food supplies, such as pepper, salt, sugar, coffee, tea etc., a good sized refrigerator, microwave, stove and oven as well as basic cooking equipment. The bed and pillows were comfortable and it has a good size closet. The location is excellent with stores and restaurants close by and some within walking distance. Also good access to the City (a good transport option is to take the ferry from nearby Larkspur to the Embarcadero in the City) Muir Woods, Pt. Reyes, Corte Madera Shopping Center etc. Parking is available in the driveway which is a huge plus. France, the owner, is extremely accommodating. All in all, my husband and I were both very pleased and recommend it highly.

Beautifully appointed, serene and comfortable - exactly what I needed!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at France's lovely studio last week, my home away from home while I was attending a week-long training on how to help folks who have trauma in their pasts (I'm a psychologist). I knew the training would be intense, so I wanted a place that would be comfortable, quiet, and homey - and her studio was exactly that.

The garden walkway to the studio is lovely, and the giant redwood visible through the kitchen window added to the sense of peacefulness in the space, while the kitchen provided me with options to do basic cooking as needed throughout the week rather than eating out every day. The carpet is made of Merino wool and felt delightful under my feet, the bed was comfortable, and the decorations were tasteful without being overwhelming. And the studio was so very quiet! It felt like my own private corner of paradise.

In addition to the studio itself being wonderful, France was also a lovely hostess. I had a problem with the door lock the first night, and she responded immediately (even though she was out of town herself that day) - and she had planned ahead to make sure there was an extra key available if I needed it. She also checked in with me a couple of times throughout my stay to make sure I had everything I needed, repaired the door lock for me as soon as she could, and was able to be flexible about the time I left on Friday. Although we didn't have many opportunities to chat, the opportunities we did have were very pleasant and I'm sure I would have enjoyed further conversation with her if the opportunity had presented itself.

If I ever have occasion to stay in the Marin County area again, I will definitely see if France's studio is available. And if you're thinking about staying in the area and are looking for a peaceful studio haven, I strongly urge you to consider France's space.
