Great energy, great people, great vibe. Super quiet dead-end street with almost no cars, with the neighbors mainly long time families. From the Coffee Roastery to Iron Springs brewery, nightly live music venues (3!), and the outdoor patio at Sleeping Lady (live music nightly as well) there is plenty to do in town, which is only 7 minute walk away. Epic road and mountain cycling from the front door. If you want to take a short drive, there is hiking galore in the Mount Tamalpais watershed, or you can go to Stinson Beach (30min), Bolinas Beach (30 min, surfing), Tomales Bay Oysters (30min, oyster capital of the west coast! also great kayaking!), Sonoma/Napa wine tasting (1hr) and San Francisco is about a 30 minute drive if you want to get to the city for the day. The Larkspur Ferry will take you on a great ride to San Francisco if you want to take a 10 min drive and get some great site seeing in!
Walk to bus stop that will take you to San Francisco. Larkspur Ferry is 10 min drive then 30 min (beautiful) ferry ride. SFO airport is 50 min drive, and Oakland airport is about the same.
No pets and no smoking inside, please. Just be cool! =)
We have nothing but positive and glowing things to say about Chris and Claire as hosts. Their home was lovely, welcoming, and comfortable. We had six adults and 1 infant in our group, and the space was great for all of us. The view from their home was spectacular and the location was exactly what we wanted - a cute town plus within an hour drive (or less) of everything we wanted to see (Redwoods, Pacific Ocean, Sonoma, San Francisco).
Plus, the small touches that they left was really a bonus. The wine, the hot tub was warm, flowers around their home - so sweet! Plus, they were very easy to communicate with and gave great recommendations about local restaurants and hikes.
Chris' house was absolutely beautiful and the perfect location. It was exactly as described and the house manual he provided made the stay entirely stress-free. Chris was so responsive and easy to reach with questions. I couldn't have asked for a better experience in a more beautiful setting and would 100% recommend this location to anyone. Thank you Chris!!
Chris was very nice and helpful. The house was just what we had hoped: private, spacious, hot tub was fantastic and we loved eating breakfast and dinner on the patio. Really great location because it's a short walk to downtown Fairfax, which we did each day. Neighborhood is very safe and beautiful with really nice neighbors. One morning we watched deer eat in the yard for about 45 minutes. It was perfect.
My girlfriends & I (5 of us) were looking for a quiet but spacious getaway for a mini-reunion weekend and found the perfect place with Chris and Claire. Perched in the hills of beautiful Marin County, we felt like we were staying in a treehouse! Beautiful views, decks, and lots of room for cooking and lounging. The house was in perfect order when we arrived, with all amenities included and then some. Chris and Claire were very generous, welcoming, and provided all important info well in advance. The location is great, too, for day-trips anywhere in Marin as well as north to wine country or south to the city. It is also the perfect balance between feeling far away and being conveniently close to a town (so shopping etc). I highly recommend staying at their place!
We had a great time at Chris's place. House instructions were great, and Chris's availability was perfect. Fairfax is a trippy town, in many ways like going back to the 1960s and 70s. This was our first time doing AirBnB, we've never stayed in someone else's home that way before, and we decided it would take a little bit more getting used to for us personally to be fully comfortable. That's just a total personal comfort thing. For those who don't mind the slight sense of invading someone else's home that way, we say go for it, great host, great place, great time. Thanks Chris!
Thanks Chris & Claire for letting us stay at your place for the weekend! It was just like the listing--the outside was an isolated retreat and the inside was full of modern comfort.
Chris was extremely helpful throughout the entire reservation process. He promptly answered all of our questions, and he checked in before the reservation to make sure all of our questions were answered.
The listing stated that the driveway is steep, and it's really steep! We ended up parking in the other suggested parking locations, which worked out fine.
The living room was spacious, even with the large, comfy sofas, and the master bedroom has a massive bed. Even though they say it's a King size, it feels much larger! The side room upstairs was extremely comfortable and cozy. There was a projector, so we could all enjoy watching some movies at the same time. The view outside is magnificent even though it was obscured by the bad weather, but that was unfortunate timing on our part.
Would come again!
We had a wonderful stay at Chris & Claire's. The house was beautiful and well equipped and stocked! The hot tub was a great bonus. A short drive from San Francisco to a well hidden gem in Marin.
The house was in walking distance to downtown Fairfax, and we were able to enjoy the nightlife without driving! Live bands at local bars were great.
Chris was very quick to respond and very helpful. Highly recommend this home to others looking for weekend getaways.

I will try anything twice! Love to cycle, feed my friends and family, hike, kayak fish, backpack, and surf. I love to smoke meat (have a 50 pound smoker!) and one day wish to have my own BBQ diner. Our home is full of love and very cozy, and we hope you agree.
Eat, drink, and be merry!
