I have stayed w/ kathleen 3 times. I like her space and hosting so much i've come to refer to her airbnb as "my sanctuary". The hospitality and the care she puts into comfort of guests in her home is kind and extraprdinary.
We much enjoyed our stay in the Garden studio with Kathleen as our kind and gracious host. The fruit trees were in bloom, and with the bamboo plants and redwoods right outside the window made the backyard into such a restful oasis. Since we live 40 minutes away in San Francisco, we'll soon return to visit Kathleen and studio!
We (a couple in 30s/40s) loved our stay here during a beautiful Thanksgiving weekend. To us, this exemplified the AirBnB experience--not just a place to crash, but a warm home to join for a short while. The cottage is lovely and serene (pictures don't do justice to it--it FEELS peaceful), set well back from the street and surrounded by greenery. It's private, just a few seconds walk to the charming house. (Walking to the bathroom at night is no big deal, by the way--it's like walking down a short hallway at home, but prettier. Those with physical disabilities should note that the kitchen bathroom is smaller than a full bath, and there are a couple of steps up to the house; in other ways, however, I think this might be an especially accessible place to stay.) Breakfast was healthy and delicious, and Kathleen was a wonderful host at all times of day--friendly, open, helpful, and very respectful. The location is great--nestled into a pretty, quiet Fairfax neighborhood, 10 to 15 minutes to town (so charming and friendly, with great food, movies, and stores) on foot, with easy drives to Bolinas (great beginning surfing and art studios), Mt. Tam (wonderful biking and hiking) and Point Reyes (awesome seaside hikes, neat towns, great food). Kathleen graciously lent us beach towels and a blanket for our surf day, and let us wash off and hang dry our wetsuits. We didn't have bikes, but it'd be easy to keep them right there. We can't wait to return for a longer stay this spring.
I stay at Kathleen's cottage every 4-8 weeks while attending retreat in Fairfax. It is peaceful, restorative, and sweet...
we have come to stay with Kathleen many times and always feel at home.
Kathleen was an extremely generous and inviting host. The cottage was a lovely, immaculate, and peaceful setting. I would highly recommend this accommodation to any traveler.
Kathleen's little cottage is amazing. Serene. Great location. Caring hostess. And lots of love!
Kathleen was a warm, generous person who really knows the area. She was a thoughtful host and a very interesting person to chat with. The studio was peaceful and relaxing. The garden was a real gem, definitely a place to soak up the atmosphere. The main house was very beautifully appointed. The town of Fairfax was a real find: small, charming, walkable. It had a hippie vibe but not so much as to turn off the non-hippies. The surrounding area is great for scenic drives and hikes. All in all, very memorable and pleased.
Wonderful and serene space, just minutes walk to the cute town of Fairfax. Kathleen is a very warm host!
Kathleen offers a beautiful serene place to enjoy the bounty of Marin county which includes the sweet town of Fairfax, the redwood forests & the National parks. Her place is immaculate, comfortable, & in many ways truly beautiful. Not only does she offer a fine place to come home to but a nourishing breakfast & if one so chooses, a good conversation. Perfect for a time to be restful, meditative after a day of exploring & enjoyment. Thank you SO much Kathleen. I will stay again should need arise.
