About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bath House

You can get away from it all and still be close to everything! This sunny, relaxing house is located in a quiet neighborhood a couple blocks from great bird-watching wetlands, half a mile from a beautiful trail for walking, running or mountain biking and a short drive from downtown Novato where you can enjoy restaurants and shopping. From here you can drive across the Golden Gate Bridge to experience all that San Francisco has to offer or up to Sonoma and Napa for wine tasting. Northern California beaches, as well as the redwoods of Muir Woods and the trails and views on Mt Tamalpais, are close by. Sonoma Raceway, host to car and motorcycle racing along with regional events and festivals, is just across the Petaluma River.

After a day of sightseeing or adventure you can relax on the outdoor seating overlooking the sunny backyard and enjoy a home cooked meal made in the well-stocked kitchen (Whole Foods, Trader Joe's and Safeway are all nearby). There are three bedrooms, all with comfortable queen-sized beds, and two bathrooms.

We were racing at Sonoma raceway and this was the perfect place for us to stay. Looking forward to next race.

Just what we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5

This is a very comfortable property. The house is simple and not heavily furnished. But, it has everything that you need. Beds are comfy. Kitchen is well stocked and looks out over the back yard. The nearby wetlands made for great trail walks. Our pup loved it too! We will definitely rent this again!

Quiet, comfortable!

  • 4 of 5

Nice clean, quiet and spacious home. Perfect for our family. Pretty well supplied with cooking utensils and such. Large deck and nice backyard setting. Could use a bigger BBQ but this time of year we were inside most of the time. We enjoyed our stay here and would recommend it and would stay here again!

Magnolia, Texas USA

The property is so charming!

  • 4 of 5

We so enjoyed this place. We loved our evening sitting out on the back patio sipping wine. When the air got too chilly we moved to the living room and enjoyed the warmth of the fireplace. The bonus for us was being able to have our dogs with us. The kitchen was pretty well stocked with pots and pans. It could use a bit bigger pasta pot though.

We walked the wetlands and that was a real treat. There were so many birds to observe.

We lucked out to be visiting at the end of October. The neighborhood was decorated in Halloween decorations and the trees made us feel like we were in New England. The colors of the trees made us feel like we were looking at a painting. The various colors were so intense. The neighborhood was such a nice neighborhood. We felt very safe. Thank you for sharing this beautiful place with us.

Centrally located between SF and Napa, great place for R&R

  • 5 of 5

Our itinerary placed as between Point Reyes, Napa, and San Francisco and this was the perfect, quiet location we needed in between the hustle and bustle of our trip. Amenities were perfect for rest and relaxation, and with plenty of space.
