We stayed at Anders's place in Kentfield and had a wonderful experience. The decks surprised me! I knew the view was great because I had seen the pictures, but you have to be there to experience it. The view was so beautiful and relaxing that it was difficult to leave the house! The location is excellent for visiting San Francisco and Napa valley. By the way, we followed Anders recommendation of using the ferry (just 5 minutes from the house) to go to San Francisco and it was an excellent option. Muir woods, Sausalito, Tiburon, Stinson beach are just minutes away by car. We were a family group including grandparents and kids and everybody loved the house! Thank you Anders for opening your house to us!

We loved everything about this home. It was a perfect place for our extended family, my wife, my daughter and her 3 children. The home was clean, comfortable and spacious. The 2 decks provided wonderfull place space and relaxing space for all of us. Anders was very responsive when we had a question. He was most helpful. We highly recommend this home. It is everything depicted on the website, and more.

Anders made us feel welcome and taken care of during our stay. He was easily reached via phone. The neighborhood is very well located to so many Marin and San Francisco attractions. The house had plenty of room for a multi-generational family of 10. Our host even helped my daughter be reunited with her smartphone at a rendezvous on highway 80.

The location of this house is perfect, not too far from San Francisco, but still incredibly peaceful with beautiful views. The house was very comfortable, we just wish the weather had been a bit warmer so we could have utilized the amazing decks more. Anders was very responsive and accommodating, I would definitely recommend this spot.

The host kept in touch over SMS throughout our visit. Everything was set up perfectly, the house has windows all around and the view from the decks is awesome. We had a group of 4 couples and we were very comfortable and enjoyed our stay at this Marin retreat.

Anders was extremely responsive to questions prior to and during our stay. I wish all hosts were like Anders. He made us feel incredibly welcome. The views from his house are breathtaking. It's nice and quiet, and there's a great shopping center with a high end supermarket just at the bottom of the hill for convenient access to groceries, etc. The place truly is "kid friendly" with plenty of toys, a swing set, and a large outdoor deck. Thank you, Anders, for having a great place for our extended family to gather and make memories together.

Hi I'm Anders
I have been hosting since early 2013. I'm from Sweden and live with my 3 young children in Marin, just north of San Francisco. We also have a condo in North Lake Tahoe close to Tahoe City. We travel a lot, especially during holidays, so our places are available quite often and sometimes for long periods of time.
