The Space

This spacious home in Fairfax, California, is located only 40 minutes from exciting San Francisco! Located in a safe suburb on the north side of the Golden Gate Bridge, other close attractions include the Muir Woods, Marin Headlands and state parks, Sausalito, the East Bay (Berkeley/Oakland areas), Napa and Sonoma.

The house includes three full bedrooms and one outdoor guest space that can serve as a fourth bedroom or a pool cabana, and easily sleeps eight guests.

A sunny garden out front provides privacy from passing vehicles and includes fragrant flowers and fruit trees. The front porch overlooks Mount Tamalpais and the rich Marin woodlands. A three minute drive or ten minute walk bring you to quaint and thriving downtown Fairfax which hosts a myriad of restaurants, shops, natural food stores, and a movie theater. The local library and public bus stop are each located about 100 yards away.

This home can easily accommodate parking for three vehicles and includes hard-wood floors throughout. Upon entering the home, you immediately walk into an open living room area that includes a pellet-stove fireplace for cool Marin nights. A formal dining room is located next to this space and overlooks the back yard area.

Constant sunlight ensures the pool is kept a warm and refreshing temperature, and provides relief from the hot summer sun. The pool area includes a grill, lounge chairs, tables and chairs, and a bar area, as well as a diving board and slide for the kids! Lush fruit trees grace the back yard, providing shade and healthy snack options.

The full kitchen includes a new refrigerator (less than 1 year old), a dishwasher, stove, oven, and furnished breakfast nook. Sliding doors lead out to the pool area and ensure the kitchen in constantly bathed in breeze and sunlight.

The master bedroom is located in the back of the house and fits a luxurious king-size bed and large closet. A second bedroom is located next to it, includes its own closet, and overlooks the pool. The master bath boasts a full-size bathtub, shower, and a discreet cubby that shelters the washing machine and dryer units. Additional storage space is located in the hallway area connecting the bedrooms to the remainder of the house.

A third bedroom is located off the kitchen, looking over the pool, and can double as a home office. A half bath is located alongside.

This property is perfect for weekend getaways, family vacations and reunions, bridal and baby showers, bachelorette weekends, and holiday parties! Long-term renting is also an option. Serious inquiries only, please. Do not hesitate to contact me with any questions, and I look forward to hearing from you soon!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • The house was exactly as described and our kids enjoyed the pool. Nice short walk to Fairfax for morning espresso! Itzik was a gracious and generous host - the garage door had some mechanical trouble, and he came by to fix it the same afternoon. And he brought a bottle of wine too! We would stay here again.

  • We had a great weekend at Itzik's house. We were in town for a wedding and having a house to cook at and use the pool was ideal. Itzik was extremely responsive and easy to work with.

  • Itzik was a wonderful host and the house was perfect for a fun family weekend. The backyard was great and inside was comfortable and cool on warm days. I would stay here again in an instant.

  • Nice place, great pool, a bit to close to Sir Francis Drake Blvd who has got quite a lot of trafic. Close to what we think is the best grocery ever, Good Earth.

  • My friends and I were looking to book a place with a pool for the weekend last minute. Itzik was very responsive in the booking process, and was very flexible with the check in and check out process. My husband and I couldn't get up there until late, so Itzik allowed one of the other couples staying over the weekend to meet him to get the key. They said he gave a great tour of the house, and was very accommodating. He even offered a pack and play for their 2 year old to sleep in.

    The pool and outside area were perfect for our stay and exactly what we were looking for. There was a hammock and plenty of lounge chairs. There was also a slide for the kids, and a diving board for the adults. There were beach towels provided for outside, and a fun push cart with a cooler for our drinks. We spent Saturday grilling burgers and Hot Dogs and just hanging out by the pool.

    The house is in a great location as well. Close to San Anselma, Mill Valley, and a short drive to Mount Tamalpais. There were also many places to eat nearby and a great organic Grocery store with many gluten free options.

    We had such a great and relaxing weekend, and would definitely choose to stay here again in the future. Itzik is a wonderful host!

  • What a great house! Itzik is the perfect host - responsive and available if you need him, and invisible when you don't!

    The house is in a wonderful laid-back town called Fairfax, and it surrounded by amazing countryside. SF is only 30 minutes away, but you probably won't want to stray too far from the backyard oasis, which includes a great pool. My family loved it, and really didn't want to leave!

  • The house was fantastic for us, we have 4 kids and they loved it. The pool, the terrace, the BBQ, the ice scream pallor a block away, the ferry to San Francisco, the local food store open late, the parking spot in front of the house...
    Itzik is a great host, he provided us with great information, and made us very comfortable with the house right away. He was responsive before and throughout our stay communicating with text measles and email. I would recommend this house to my close friend.

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.
