This cozy studio is completely remodeled and beautiful (in our humble opinion)! It's about 430 square feet and adjoins the house but has its own entrance.
We live in a quiet and safe neighborhood with lots of trees and walking trails nearby. Technically, we're in the San Rafael hills, although we're only about one-third of a mile (up a winding road) from Lincoln Avenue, one of the main streets running through San Rafael.
Full bathroom with bathtub & shower
Kitchenette with stove, refrigerator and microwave
32" flat-screen TV with premium cable channels
Wireless internet access
Plenty of street parking, which is a short walk to the front door (no steps)
We provide all linens, towels, and soap. Guests staying 7 days or more are welcome to use our washer and dryer.
You'll find coffee and tea in the cupboard, several bottles of water in the fridge and, if you let us know what you take in your coffee/tea, we'll have that on hand as well!
San Rafael is a convenient and central Bay Area location, only a 30-minute drive to Napa, San Francisco, Berkeley/Oakland, and about 20 minutes to the beach and Muir Woods. Downtown San Rafael and the transit station are about 1 mile away, as is the freeway entrance (101 north and south). The downtown area is charming (the film, American Graffiti, was filmed on 4th Street), with artist studios, shops, restaurants, and a wonderful art house cinema. Sol Food Restaurant, less than a mile away, has been written up in the New York Times (36 Hours in Marin County); it has delicious and inexpensive Puerto Rican food. We're also near Dominican College, and the Terrapin Crossroads, a great new music venue owned by Phil Lesh of the Grateful Dead.
We love hosting people and can guarantee you'll feel comfortable and well cared for. We have an elderly dachshund who mostly stays in the house and a small standard poodle who is very sweet and friendly. We'll consider pets with an additional deposit. Looking forward to meeting you soon!

Great, great, space. The pictures capture perfectly how nice this studio is! So very comfortable, the kitchenette was awesome, the living area even better! Beautiful setting and quiet, peaceful neighborhood. I cannot recommend enough. Book it!!
Great location. Very handy spot to serve the needs of anyone trying to be in Napa within an hour or SF within 30 minutes. Totally comfortable and the right size for 1 or 2 people.
This studio was great! It was clean, well-kept, and convenient. Jessica and Stacey were gracious hosts, and San Rafael was an absolutely charming town. We would definitely stay here again!
Lovely, private, clean, quiet inlaw unit. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
We consider ourselves to be very lucky that we choose Jessica and Stacey's studio for our stay in Marin!
They are wonderful people and the studio is very clean and comfortable. The small kitchen is equipped with everything you'll ever need should you plan to cook yourself.
Jessica and Stacey are so wonderful people that we have found ourselves actually spending time with our hosts on a walk and even for a lovely evening!
And last but not least, we won't have to look for other places in Marin anymore... We know where to stay from now on ;-)
Jessica and Stacey's studio apartment was just wonderful. Perfect size for 2 people on a week's vacation. I would highly recommend contacting them if you need a place to stay!!
My week with Stacey and Jessica was lovely. The studio is spacious with a large walk in closet with shelves, and two dressers provide lots of drawer space. The kitchenette is perfect for preparing easy meals. Marin has great take out and Whole Foods and TJs are nearby. The TV gets lots of channels including premium services like HBO and Showtime. Everything is nice, new, and clean. The neighborhood is quiet, and it was fun watching the neighbors walk by with their dogs. Parking in front is easy which in the Marin hills is a treat. There is privacy and when needed, Stacey or Jessica is there to help. I definitely recommend the studio to others and would look forward to returning.
Thank you Jessica and Stacey! This place is perfect. The apartment is well built and super cozy. Stacey did a great job with the remodel! Great comfy bed and couch. The shampoo was nice, there were fresh towels, the kitchen is exactly what you need, there was also a big walk in closet with plenty of space. This place has everything.
The house is in a great location, easy to get anywhere in San Rafael. Getting on the 101 is also easy. Having whole foods less than 10 minutes away was a bonus for me!
I brought my dog Bear and she got along fine with their dog, although they only met briefly. Great places to walk dogs around the well forested neighborhood.
I will be back!
Great host, great place, great stay!
View over the city was beautiful. Convenience of local food spots of all sorts yet tucked away from the 'busyness'.
Amenities were perfect w/ small kitchen and plenty of seating options for late night reading. Definitely recommend.
IS perfect to strong a word to describe our stay at this lovely home? The large room with separate entrance ina house up in the San Rafeal hills was very comfortable and handy for all our explorations in the area. The handy kitchenette is hidden when not needed, the shower is brilliant and very nice shampoo, conditiner & bath gel wer provided. Jessica and Stacy are lovely. I lok forward to staying here again!
