Comfy and clean home.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the house a lot. Felt right at home. Lots of creative art and a great view. Location is perfect for S.F., Muir Woods, and Sausalito.

Warm, Cozy, and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Peaceful is the best way to describe Mary's home. Beautiful garden, deer everyday, and the sunrises and sunsets were incredible. We were looking for a place were we and our adult children could comfortably spend our holidays cooking, playing games, and connecting. We found it all here. Honestly we barely left. But if you choose to venture out the location is ideal. Close to everything San Francisco, Mt. Tam, Napa etc. But trust me you will never want to leave. Thanks Mary for sharing your home with us.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the kind review. It warms my heart when someone enjoys my nest as I do. You GOT IT. Aren't I the lucky one. And I am grateful each day. Thank you for letting me know about the broken glass. Part of the game of living. No problem. It is just a "thing". Best wishes for 2016. Mary

Great Place to Stay !!!!!

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for somewhere to spend your days in the San Francisco area I highly recommend Mary's place. The view is great, the neighborhood is quite and there are several things to see close by. The house is well equipped with linens and cooking utensils, plus there is a great Safeway store close by for your grocery shopping. Mary is a great host and should we return to the area we'll try to book it again.

Tranquil and Comfortable Home

  • 5 of 5

A group of 6 of us stayed in Mary's home for 2 weeks and would like to thank her for her hospitality. The accommodation was very comfortable and the views were beautiful. It was very peaceful and the deer in the garden was a bonus! Everything about the house was as it was described and we would hope to return again in the future! Mary was very welcoming and made us feel right at home and we would not hesitate in recommending her home to a friend.

Personality Plus: Owner & House

  • 5 of 5

After spending 3 nights in the city in a Cole Valley Ap't, the five of us arrived at "Mary's Place" enthusiastic about the remainder of our 5 night stay. This was a family trip w/son, daughter,SIL hubby and myself.

This amazing woman manages to endear herself to you from moment#1......her home is fantastically comfortable and fact you just want to stay there and to heck w/venturing out. BUT we DID venture out and enjoyed every moment.

From Muir Woods to Point Reyes Lighthouse to Sonoma and Napa to visits w/friends in Mill Valley and Corte Madera AND falling in love w/Tiburon. Our last night at Mary's we celebrated 3 birthdays at CAPRICE in Tiburon.....try it, you'll love it.

Had our friends pop in to see the place and they were WOW'D also.

My family congratulated me for making such a KOOL rental decision. Her ceramis, her acquired artwork, her interesting books and periodicals ALL added to the ambiance.

Thank you much. Hugs & health.

Lovely relaxing place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We spent a long weekend here after a road trip from Los Angeles. It was a lovely, calm place to stay - near enough to Los Angeles and the Marin headlands to explore but peaceful enough to sleep well. The house was beautiful, clean and well equipped. The beds were very comfortable. We really liked the balcony overlooking the Bay with hummingbirds, jays and deer.

Mary was a very welcoming and discreet hostess. We left feeling refreshed. I would not hesitate to recommend this house and would stay there again.
