About this listing
To experience Fairfax at its best, Home Haven is a good place to start. Charming views in all directions make it easy to appreciate our quaint community and vast open space. We offer gardens, ponds, decks, and a fabulous breakfast.
1 Room for $89
Our home is etched into a mountain and we share it with birds, deer and a variety of natural foliage. The decks out front provide a spectacular view of mountainous, wooded surroundings and a quaint downtown area which is just a 10 minute walk down the hill. Whether you enjoy mountain biking, fine wines and great restaurants, or simply an opportunity to get back to nature, this is a good place to do it all.
Our home was built in 1920 and is filled with happy memories. There are flower gardens, decks overlooking the town, a small orchard with various seasonal fruits. It is a good and relaxing place to spend time during the day and rest your head at night.
Guests will have access to a small jacuzzi, wireless internet, a small shed to store bikes, several decks, a living room, kitchen and bathroom to name a few. We have a Pack & Play highchair and toys for a small child. Additionally, we have a foam mat for an older child (7 and under) to sleep beside the bed.
Interaction with Guests
Rob and I are a social couple who love traveling and meeting new people. We also enjoy cooking and look forward to providing breakfast each morning with fresh eggs from our chickens and hand picked fruit from our orchard.
. The room is quaint and airy with many windows to appreciate this beautiful surrounding. It is a quiet and tranquil experience where most often the only noise is a gentle breeze or the sound of me cooking in the kitchen.
We hope you come and enjoy it with us soon.
Wonderful neighbors and a Mediterranean flavor to the views with many hiking and biking trails.
Six min. to local transit stop and a 20 min drive to the Golden Gate Ferry

Beautiful Mediterranean like view of Fairfax hills, small desk with fruit, cheese & crackers as a snack. Fresh bottles of filtered water.
Dies war meine erste Erfahrung mit AirBnB und sie war wirklich einzigartig. Joanna und Rob gaben mir vom ersten Moment an das Gefühl, zu Hause zu sein. Ihr Haus ist wirklich ein Traum, der Blick aus dem Fenster meines Zimmers absolut phantastisch. Ich habe jede Sekunde hier genossen: der Blick in die Landschaft, die Vogelstimmen, mein Buch auf dem Balkon, die kleine Stadt Fairfax und die tolle Umgebung. Aber besonders möchte ich noch einmal die Gastfreundschaft von Rob und Joanna unterstreichen! Vielen Dank für die tolle Zeit!!
Joanna & Rob were kind enough to accept my very last minute booking request & provided far more than a just a room. I enjoyed a beautiful and peaceful environment, delicious fresh eggs from their chickens, fresh fruits from their garden, hotel comforts like a robe & jacuzzi (where I caught a shooting star!) AND best of all genuine kindness and warmth. A visit to Home Haven is like a self guided retreat. I can not wait to return.
Do believe all of the wonderful reviews! My three nights with Joanna and Rob were a perfect airbnb experience in every way. Joanna and Rob are wonderfully warm, thoughtful and gracious hosts. And their home in the beautiful hills of Fairfax is lovingly decorated, with immaculate attention to detail, creating a peaceful and comfortable stay. From their quick and thoughtful communication to the delicious breakfasts made from eggs from their chickens and fruits and vegetables from their garden, plus all of the wonderful details in between, everything was absolutely perfect. Hope to return again soon!
Staying with Joanna and Rob was so much better that I could have ever anticipated. The location is great, their room as beautiful as the picture clearly shows, and the house and garden full of gorgeous details and clever surprises. Breakfast and treats are really outstanding and delicious and made from scratch from fresh eggs, fruits and vegetables straight form their own garden; but what really made this experience stand apart was their incredible kindness and gracious hospitality. I feel truly privilege to have had the opportunity to share this beautiful home with this exceptional family and will always remember these wonderful 3 days.
Hosts Joanna and Rob were very nice and welcoming! They communicated effectively before and during the stay. It was like being at home away from home. Joanna even made me dinner from groceries I had bought before I got back from work! They were a joy to stay with and I only wish I was able to stay longer!
I came to stay at a Bird's Eye View for a weekend to recharge before school started back up again. Joanna and Rob were incredibly kind and gracious, making me feel taken care of with snacks and a beautiful breakfast fresh from their garden. Overall, it was just perfect! I'm ready to go back already.
I had a few days off work and decided to try my hand at a bike tour of Marin. Although I am local, this was a big adventure for me. It was my first multi-day bike trip and I was looking for a place that seemed warm, inspiring and comforting enough to hold me after a long day. A tall order I know, but the experience with Joanna and Rob lived up to it.
Their home is located in the hills beyond Fairfax. It is a meandering route straight up that kills the quads, but presents a scenic victory when done. The room is very comfortable with a beautiful view that overlooks the Marin hills. The property is surrounded by a hen house and bountiful gardens that Joanna and Rob had lovingly created over the years. I thoroughly enjoyed getting lost in the space, admiring the landscape and indulging in the ripe blueberry and raspberries that were in season.
Joanna and Rob were both very accommodating. They made sure I had everything I needed, provided me with space to roam the grounds as I liked and were a pleasure to talk with. They are incredibly generous people who enjoy sharing their space with others. I feel like I made friends and enjoyed the stay so much, will definitely go back for more visits.

Our hospitality has always received great reviews. I [Joanna] have worked at a local bed and breakfast and I delight in cooking. We love to travel and have been to Japan, England, France, Italy and Africa. Rob and I enjoy people and hope to make your stay restful and relaxing. We look forward to serving you and the possibility of perhaps hearing your story over a cup of tea or complementary wine.
