Overview

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.

RELAXING NATURE RETREAT

  • 5 of 5

The backyard and the location made this a great choice for us (a couple and our dog) as it is restful and surrounded by nature. It was a treat being close to the trail (Rush Creek) with its live oak trees and the walk at the end of the road near the lagoon (just past the communal tennis courts and pool). We really enjoyed the garden – trees and lawn and deck. Our dog was so happy being able to freely come and go into the garden, which is safe with high fences. The variety of trees including a redwood, the amazing breezes, and the geese flying overhead added to the special feeling we had here.

Great neighborhood, great house

  • 5 of 5

My parents, husband, two children (7 & 4), and I stayed for four days. The bedrooms were great space with closet setups in each. The deck and backyard were amazing wind down areas. There was more than ample pans, plates, cups and silverware, which was greatly appreciated. The pool was a nice addition as well as the park just two blocks away. Nany was very quick to answer any questions I had. I would definitely stay again.

Great Novato location - roomy home with everything you could want for a weekend away!

  • 4 of 5

Great house in a really nice, quiet neighborhood. My husband and I stayed here for the weekend as a gateway to Napa for Bottlerock. The house is beautiful with all the amenities you could want. Super comfortable beds. The kitchen is completely stocked with everything you could need to cook with. It's also nice that the bathrooms have shampoo and soap - I've stayed at many VRBO locations that do not have these supplies.

The area is absolutely beautiful and a very close walk to a beautiful walking path with bird watching views! The owners were also very responsive to any questions that came up!

I would have given it 5 stars except I wish the cleaning fee had been put into the cost of the place per night as it added a huge amount to the total cost. My husband and I are very clean people and to charge that much separate from the nightly cost seemed pretty steep.
