I thoroughly enjoyed my stay with Julie. She is outgoing, friendly and we got along famously. I felt very much at home, at ease and comfortable. The location is perfect for all sorts of activities: the beach, hiking, wine country, San Francisco and shopping.
Julie was a friendly and generous hostess who gave me plenty of space to do my own thing and made me feel at home. Her place was comfortable and very convenient for my week in Marin. The hot tub was a big bonus for me, as well as having a well set-up kitchen with everything I needed to make simple meals for myself.
Julie provided a warm welcome and complete access to all her amenities, including a hot tub. Within a short bus ride to the marin civic center , the neighborhood is very quiet and borders on a lovely wetland.
