Property description

Quotes from our great renter's: 'Thank you for providing us with this beautiful sanctuary in the woods. This was the best vacation rental we've stayed in and we hope to be back soon.'

'We owe you, thanks for 'tuning us in' to such an amazing part of the Bay Area!'

'Your house is truly a sanctuary, we fell in love with it as soon as we walked in the door.'

''We found the house amazing, each window in the house gives you a different view and perspective of the surrounding nature.'

'Thank you for letting us into your slice of paradise. Everything was wonderful from the decor and location to the smallest of details. Did I mention my wife wanted to move in?'

'You really have a gift for making people feel at home. We are already talking of coming here again.'

Our 1500 sq ft. house is loft-style, built on a large rock with views of the Marin Mountains. Take pleasure in relaxing nights as you hear the crickets chirp and the rushing of the creek during the rainy months. Our house is a beautiful, tranquil place to unwind and enjoy everything that nature has to offer. On any given day, deer can be seen as close as 10 ft. from the outside deck.

Our house is nestled in the quaint town of Fairfax, CA which was just voted in 2011 as the ' Best Town in Marin' by the Pacific Sun.It is a quiet haven untouched by strip malls and corporate chains, yet it is close enough to the hustle and bustle of cities like San Francisco and Berkeley. A short distance a way are Mill Valley, Sausalito, Mt. Tamalpais, Point Reyes, Stinson Beach & Napa.

We provide bathrobes, blow dryers, 5 different types of pillows ranging from soft to extra firm, board games, as well as an entertainment deck with umbrella covered dining table and love seat patio set. We also have a small library area where you can curl up and read a good book.

Take advantage of picnicking in Deer Park, hiking/driving to the many lakes located near the house, strolling through the town of Fairfax, antique shopping in San Anselmo and exploring the other great cities, beaches & activities nearby. A few nights in Fairfax and you just may decide to stay!

We accept several forms of payment: Credit Card, E-check, paper check, bank transfer, and Paypal. For anything other than Credit Card and E-check please contact owner.
