Guestbook comments from the owner

Anton and family are delightful and made us feel very welcome -it was a pleasure getting to know them. The house is clean, airy and spacious with views to the surrounding woods and a very comfortable Master bed. Many of the rooms had fresh flowers which was a lovely touch. It is well located with steps down to local restaurants, a playground, beautiful trails and other amenities. We would not hesitate to come back.

Spacious, Charming, Close to Town

  • 5 of 5

We've enjoyed our stay in this spacious and charming house very much.

The gas grill, outdoor seating, big dining room table and lots of comfortable chairs and couches make it an ideal spot for spending time with extended family and friends.

The kitchen was well stocked and provided everything we needed for making home-cooked meals.

The living room or "sun room" is looking out into the surrounding trees and letting lots of natural light in. It quickly became one of our favorite spots in the house. Our three young kids spent most of their play time here or in the sandbox outside.

A reading corner in two of the bedrooms and a two desks provided a space for both relaxing and getting some work done.

Another great aspect of the Walnut House is its proximity to the town of Larkspur. Pretty much everything (restaurants, cafes, playgrounds etc.) is in walking distances.

Pleasant stay

  • 4 of 5

Our stay at the Walnut House was lovely. We received a very nice welcome from the owner. We felt right at home. It was perfect for our family of 5. The house was equipped with all that we needed and it was close to San Fran and all the other tourist spots.

Relax in the Trees

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful place to stay! We loved Anton's Relax in the Trees place in Larkspur. It's clean, private and has gorgeous natural light. It is so close to downtown Larkspur which is such a charming town with so many great restaurants to choose from. There are gorgeous hikes just steps from the door and nearly every day we saw deer, often with their young babies, a very friendly and colorful wild turkey and lots of other local wildlife. Anton and Terra were so warm and available for anything we needed during our stay. It's a perfect spot and is an easy drive into San Francisco or up to Napa Valley for wine tasting. Highly, highly recommended!

Fantastic time.

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Anton for sharing your lovely home in Larkspur with my family.

We had a fantastic holiday. The Walnut house was the perfect place for our crew, as our age range was 5 - 65. We frequently walked into the sweet downtown area. Being so close to town, it gave us independence in our group, while having a comfortable living experience together as well. Beds were wonderful, house well appointed and clean, kitchen well stocked, fast wifi, and close to trails (bicycle and hiking).
