The property is truly special: the gardens are beautiful, the surrounding forest is breathtaking and the decks are expansive. The unit itself is well outfitted, clean and quite comfortable. The hosts could not have been more gracious.

Staying with Geraldine and Joe was such a pleasure. A 5-Star experience without fail. It couldn't have been any better. We arrived in darkness and woke up in the most amazing natural setting. The putting green is wonderful and there are different places where to sit and write and relax or just look at the amazing scenery and the hawks circling over the trees in the distance. And we didn't even use the pool! I so want to come back.

Geraldine and Joe are fantastic hosts! We had the best luck, and we're able to stay here while house hunting. This was by far the most beautiful airbnb location I have ever stayed at. Joe and Geraldine have been building up this glorious mountain property for over 47 years, and are still adding more! The surrounding area is peaceful and the climate is great. I would recommend this place to everyone.

The house itself was clean and brite and comfortable and the property is beautiful. Geraldine and her husband Joe are very warm and welcoming. They had left us some treats to welcome us. They also suggested places to eat, which we went to and loved. The location was my favorite part. I am a huge fan of point Reyes which was very close. We were also very close to Stinson which I love but normally avoid because of the winding roads to get there. Coming from Laugnitas was much easier. A beautiful, enjoyable ride. There is also plenty of hiking super close by which I will have to come back for. All in all, this was one of my favorite vacations. Great location and beautiful property, warm and welcoming hosts.
