About the property

Away from the hustle and bustle

Walking distance (7 minutes) to Good Earth (best health food store in Marin) and downtown Fairfax (we will show you the shortcut).

Fairfax is a small quaint town which has kept its original flavor and offers family as well as gourmet restaurants, a 6 movie theaters, 4 live music venues, gorgeous hikes and an Eldorado of biking trails (as a matter of fact Fairfax claims to be the cradle of mountain biking), farmers market and lots of small shops where treasures can still be found.

This town has its own way of making you feel at home with its people walking and chatting in the streets, particularly around the downtown's Coffee Roastery. The typical Fairfaxian life style is casual and relaxed.

This is a beautiful hillside property offering stunning views of the surrounding hills. The neighborhood is friendly and slow paced, minutes away from hiking trails overlooking the San Francisco Bay Area.

From your rental you have access to our private BBQ area hidden in the oak trees.

The big deck is ideal for relaxation with small table and chairs.

Our family loved this home, and Thomas, the host!

We had a lovely time at this vrbo. Thomas was extremely kind and accommodating, and we would recommend this place to anyone interested in a vrbo in this area. You can't go wrong, here! We will definitely be back.

Fantastic little place. Perfect for me and my young adult children. Great location!

  • 4 of 5

if you are a TV watcher (like my family is), be sure to have your own means of watching. It wasn't something i was concerned about checking before arrival, but found out when i got there that there were no TVs. However, we were VERY busy with travel so it didn't matter too much, but i do like to watch TV to wind down. But all in all, hands down a great place to stay!!!!

one FOREWARNING. do NOT mistake the salt for sugar! LOL... makes for a YUCKY coffee!

I'd be more than happy to stay here again! Thank you again for opening up your home to us!

Clean, convenient, fantastic views

  • 5 of 5

Thomas was very easy to coordinate with. The home itself is clean and comfortable and was outfitted with fresh fruit, flowers, bottled water, and a nice bottle of wine. The balcony has stunning views! Thanks for a great stay!

Perfect spot for our family reunion. Relaxed, superbly well equipped property with great balcony.

  • 5 of 5

Tomas and Anita's attention to detail was clear to see. Spotlessly clean rooms, large bedrooms and comfortable main living room with loads of space if the weather wasn't so good outside ......

but Marin County did not disappoint, so the east facing balcony was just perfect for a sunny breakfast or to enjoy the evening's view across the valley enjoying a glass of wine in the cooling air.

We even got to use the BBQ in the garden area down the hill.

Everything you could possibly want in the kitchen and bathroom.

Even fruit and a bottle of wine left, milk & butter in the fridge and the ice tray full in the freezer.

A few books and magazines and plenty to catch up on with our globetrotting Son, and we didn't even notice there was no TV.

Really can't speak highly enough about this great place.

We used it as a base to explore Tiburon, Sausalito, the vineyards to the north east and of course into San Francisco.

We wouldn't hesitate to book it again if we come back to this lovely area of CA. Thanks

Great place! Great hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Very well equipped apartment, very welcoming hosts! Laid back and quiet neighborhood - was perfect for our family of 4. A 6 min walk from Good Earth grocery store, and not very far from the rest of 'downtown' Fairfax. About 35 minutes from San Francisco. Thanks again!

Wonderful Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

My father and I stayed at this lovely home for 4 nights and we absolutely loved it! The owner was there to kindly greet us when we arrived. He and his wife had a basket of fruit, fresh cut flowers, and a bottle of wine ready for us. The home was immaculate, cozy, and in a peaceful location high up in the hills, and it had a magnificent view of the San Francisco Bay area. We thoroughly enjoyed the view from the the living room balcony from both the inside of the house and while sitting outside on the long wrap-around deck. The house had everything we could ask for. The beds were really comfortable, the kitchen was stocked with everything we needed and even more. The owner made himself readily available for anything we might need or any questions we had. The location is perfect! It's far enough away from the busy San Francisco area, and yet close enough to drive there. I would recommend this property to anyone who is looking for a peaceful retreat away that allows you to get away from it all. We would definitely stay here again.
