While our trip to Fairfax was quick and we didn't get to spend much time at the house, it was a nice place to stay and provided better value to our group than any of the hotel options in the area. Street side garden was beautiful with flowers in bloom. Backyard was also very private. If it had been warmer, the kids would have loved to spend time in the pool.
Itzik was a great host and responded promptly (within 20 minutes) to each and every inquiry we had with him. We had a large group, and extra blankets, sheets, pillows, towels, etc... were left to accommodate our needs.
Parking is a bit tight, and I don't know how you would fit 2 cars in the very steep driveway, but I am sure if need be you could find parking on one of the neighboring side streets.
We would definitely stay again
Our experience was perfect!
The house is amazing and very comfort and Itzik is a great host.
The house was really well equipped with full kitchen and a large dining table.
The rooms are very comfortable as well.
While we haven't used the pool and the grill (it was a bit cold) this house can be a great choice for those warm and sunny weekends.
Overall it was perfect.
Great getaway from the city. We were welcomed to a bottle of wine at our place. We love the place and area, it's in a cute little town easily accessible to the 101. 4 bedrooms(with 1 outside) really accommodated our group and even though it was cold during the Holidays this year, we had ample heat and space heaters to keep us cozy.
Our friends gathered for a calmer New Year's and this was the perfect spot for 7 friends to hang out and make dinners together. While still only 40 mins to the city, this place is in a great spot and everything. Place is as advertised and the pictures do provide an accurate reflection of their Fairfax home. We would definitely come back again!
Host also came by to give us 2 more bottles of wine on NYE and accommodated for a late check-out. Much appreciated!
This house was exactly as described and worked out very well for our family. The host was very responsive and left a couple of bottles of wine for our enjoyment.
Itzik was very accommodating and responsive. The house is exactly as described with the standard amenities. Our stay was pleasant and relaxing.
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.
