This cozy studio is about 420 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. The road to our house is narrow and winds around a bit, but it's only 1/3 of a mile from Lincoln Avenue, one of the main streets running through San Rafael. Downtown San Rafael is about a 15 minute walk.
Full bathroom with bathtub & shower
Kitchenette with apartment-sized stove, refrigerator and microwave
32" flat-screen TV with premium cable channels (HBO, Showtime, etc.)
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 may use our washer and dryer.
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, 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 a small standard poodle who is very sweet and friendly. Looking forward to meeting you soon!
PET POLICY: SORRY, NO CATS. WE CHARGE $20.00 PER NIGHT FOR YOUR DOG; WHEN YOU MAKE THE RESERVATION, PLEASE MAKE THE RESERVATION FOR THREE PEOPLE. WE DO NOT WANT PETS TO BE LEFT UNATTENDED IN THE STUDIO. THANK YOU!
The only real rule is that smoking isn't allowed on the premises. Other than that, we would appreciate that guests be aware that we are living upstairs and to keep noise to a minimum in the evening.
