We (a couple in 30s/40s) loved our stay here during a beautiful Thanksgiving weekend. To us, this exemplified the AirBnB experience--not just a place to crash, but a warm home to join for a short while. The cottage is lovely and serene (pictures don't do justice to it--it FEELS peaceful), set well back from the street and surrounded by greenery. It's private, just a few seconds walk to the charming house. (Walking to the bathroom at night is no big deal, by the way--it's like walking down a short hallway at home, but prettier. Those with physical disabilities should note that the kitchen bathroom is smaller than a full bath, and there are a couple of steps up to the house; in other ways, however, I think this might be an especially accessible place to stay.) Breakfast was healthy and delicious, and Kathleen was a wonderful host at all times of day--friendly, open, helpful, and very respectful. The location is great--nestled into a pretty, quiet Fairfax neighborhood, 10 to 15 minutes to town (so charming and friendly, with great food, movies, and stores) on foot, with easy drives to Bolinas (great beginning surfing and art studios), Mt. Tam (wonderful biking and hiking) and Point Reyes (awesome seaside hikes, neat towns, great food). Kathleen graciously lent us beach towels and a blanket for our surf day, and let us wash off and hang dry our wetsuits. We didn't have bikes, but it'd be easy to keep them right there. We can't wait to return for a longer stay this spring.
I stay at Kathleen's cottage every 4-8 weeks while attending retreat in Fairfax. It is peaceful, restorative, and sweet...
we have come to stay with Kathleen many times and always feel at home.
Kathleen was an extremely generous and inviting host. The cottage was a lovely, immaculate, and peaceful setting. I would highly recommend this accommodation to any traveler.
Kathleen's little cottage is amazing. Serene. Great location. Caring hostess. And lots of love!
Kathleen was a warm, generous person who really knows the area. She was a thoughtful host and a very interesting person to chat with. The studio was peaceful and relaxing. The garden was a real gem, definitely a place to soak up the atmosphere. The main house was very beautifully appointed. The town of Fairfax was a real find: small, charming, walkable. It had a hippie vibe but not so much as to turn off the non-hippies. The surrounding area is great for scenic drives and hikes. All in all, very memorable and pleased.
Wonderful and serene space, just minutes walk to the cute town of Fairfax. Kathleen is a very warm host!
Kathleen offers a beautiful serene place to enjoy the bounty of Marin county which includes the sweet town of Fairfax, the redwood forests & the National parks. Her place is immaculate, comfortable, & in many ways truly beautiful. Not only does she offer a fine place to come home to but a nourishing breakfast & if one so chooses, a good conversation. Perfect for a time to be restful, meditative after a day of exploring & enjoyment. Thank you SO much Kathleen. I will stay again should need arise.
The studio is clean and peaceful as promised. Kathleen makes a wonderful and thoughtful breakfast which I really appreciated given my schedule. The studio is also 5 minutes from Good Earth which made my stay very easy.
Our stay at peaceful Fairfax was truly an experience we will always remember. My husband and I traveled along the Pacific Northwest for over a month during my summer break from teaching. On the last part of our trip we were so lucky to be accepted as guests at this amazing quiet hidden treasure. Kathleen is beyond a wonderful host. My husband and I celebrated my birthday at Kathleen's. She made me feel so special with her amazing fresh fruit complete with candles and other special touches that we're BEYOND thoughtful.Her home is welcoming, warm and exactly like the pictures! We left rested and renewed. You can't help feeling that your stay at this home was a special experience that words can't possibly convey. We made a friend we hope to keep in touch with and truly hope to visit again! You won't be disappointed!
