Interaction with Guests
We understand that every guest comes with a specific set of needs. Some guests might be looking for a quiet time away from conversation and socializing, while others love interacting and connecting. We are happy to go with the flow ! We are always ready to answer questions or provide directions to our favorite restaurants - and we love conversations around the kitchen table or while sitting on the deck with a cup of tea.
We love living in the San Geronimo Valley and the peace and serenity that comes with country living.
At night the only sounds one might hear are the the hooting of the owls or the occasional howling of coyotes in the nearby hills.
We love our neighborhood and the fact that we know our neighbors well. This is a place where we celebrate the full moon with neighborhood gatherings and where our children grow up riding horses and bicycles down the street.
Public transportation exists and is doable, but to get around more easily a car is recommended.

We are smoking and drug free. Only limited alcohol use only please!
Because of allergies we keep the house scent and chemical free.
Iris and Claudia were most welcoming and kind and generous and helpful hostesses! As you can see, I have many wonderful adjectives to describe them and their lovely home. They were very helpful in every way - from directions to stores, to restaurants to wonderful places to explore along the ocean. I would highly recommend staying with them whenever you can, and I will definitely be back!
Oh, and they also have sweet dogs, too, that made me feel very welcome whenever I arrived back at the house!
Dearest Val! Thank you so much for the great review and your very sweet personal message! We too loved having you here with us and yes, it was like meeting an old friend! We would love to have you come back and stay with us again!! Please do!
Iris and Claudia
Such a great stay with Iris and Claudia! Both were friendly and made me feel very welcome. Claudia was around more during my stay and we had some really interesting conversations. I really enjoyed that. Their house has great energy and also two very lovable dogs. The room looks exactly like the pictures. I agree with someone else who reviewed and said the room is maybe a little bigger in person. Plenty of space and I thought the bed was comfortable. The house is in a quiet neighborhood in the woods but very close to Fairfax and an amazing health food store called Good Earth. This home was perfect as a place to stay before and after a meditation retreat. Highly recommend and I will be back next time I'm in the area! Thanks again!
Woodacre is a lovely secluded community off Sir Francis Drake in West Marin. Iris and Claudia's house is an oasis and the room was exactly as pictured, at the other end of the house from my hosts' bedroom spaces. I had access to the kitchen and my own bathroom.
I spent two nights there and feel certain that I will return when the occasion to be in West Marin presents itself again.
What a beautiful place to stay! I felt welcome from the first exchange. Then, when I arrived I felt like I was home. Iris and Claudia are kind, warm and generous hosts. Highly recommend their place!
The hosts are very warm and inviting people. Cozy house. Comfortable bed. What more can you ask for. Quiet neighborhood in one the most beautiful areas of California.
Iris was very communicative before my arrival. A very sweet person and lovely home. Her two dogs were wonderful as well. Iris was very accommodating and flexible.
Iris and Claudia were such sweet hosts. They also have the cutest and fluffiest border collie, Maggie, whom i will miss fluffing her face. The room is quiet, serene, clean, comfortable, and a perfect get away from the city for anyone looking to emerse themselves in the heart of Marin.
