Overall we really enjoyed our stay at Itzik's house. We chose it for the pool and the location -- and both were perfect. We had a couple issues arise, but Itzik sent his handyman over right away and did everything he could to ensure that we enjoyed our stay. His house is set up well, with plenty of pool towels, pots and pans, dishes, and just about everything you need to make it your home away from home. We would definitely recommend it, and look forward to staying there again!
This house was great and I would definitely go back -- a great escape from the city! The kitchen was fully stocked, the house was clean, and the pool was incredible. Thank you!!
Great place very clean great location and the owner are awesome. Really enjoy our stay
Good communication, friendly host. House is awesome for us ! And everything perfect!
The house was beautiful and Itzik was very thorough with directions. She welcomed us with wine, coffee and water and the pool and backyard barbecue was wonderful! The house is about a 5-10 minute walk to downtown Fairfax where there are lots of little shops and restaurants. The house does not have AC which is pretty typical of the area but the windows provide a nice breeze throughout the house. We would definitely stay here again!
We loved our stay at the Fairfax house. Fairfax is a great little town located a short distance from San Francisco, Sausalito, Tiburon and Stinson Beach. The house was very clean and comfortable and everyone enjoyed the backyard pool and outside dining area. Our host could not have been more welcoming or accommodating.
A breeze to do transaction with. House was very clean and comes with a lot of amenities. Cold water and juice was provided in the fridge. Toiletries, clean sheets and towels were provided. Check-in/out instructions were clear and simple. Itzik made himself available should there be anything else we need. The house was perfect for both kids and adults. It was more than we expected. We will surely recommend to friends and family and will make it a place to stay the next time we're in town.
About the Host, Itzik
I am a former hotel owner and manager with an outgoing personality. I moved to the Bay Area in 2000 from the Florida Keys and fell in love with the San Francisco area and Fairfax in particular.
It would be a pleasure to host you and your friends or family at my Fairfax villa, and I will happily recommend hiking, biking, and walking trails in the area, local yoga classes, fine dining, tours, and boutique wineries in neighboring Napa and Sonoma regions.
