Interaction with Guests
I love having guests. Marin has been my home for many years,and I can help you with any questions about this area. Apart from English I also speak fluent Swedish,French, Spanish and passable German.
The well established trees add to the charm of this older quiet neighborhood. It is great for walking.The top of the hill has a great view and is only for pedestrians. It has no houses, just trees and grass and flowers and some rocks to sit on. A little wilderness in the middle of town.
You can safely park on the street in front of the house
The express bus to San Francisco and West Marin and the gorgeous National Seashore
a five minute walk down the hill. The house is walking distance to downtown San Anselmo and to downtown San Rafael. There are of course regular buses as well.
There are airport buses to both the San Francisco and the Oakland airport starting at 4 AM

This was the most fabulous place I have ever stayed and Marianne was a delightful hostess. We shared many chats over breakfast and she even taught me some Spanish phrases since I plan on taking Spanish classes this summer. Marianne also took time out of her busy schedule to drive me around a nearby neighborhood looking at homes for sale.
The room was lovely, very fresh and clean with nice views. She has a charming courtyard with a beautiful rose garden ~ perfect for morning coffee or that evening glass of wine!
I defiantly plan on staying in Marianne's home the next time I am in the area. Gracias Marianne!
Staying with Marianne feels like a home away from home. She is delightful, and the tower room is a refuge. This was my second stay, and I am returning in June.
Marianne was the best host anyone could ever ask for! She is so warm, accommodating, and she makes you feel like you are staying in your own house. I loved staying in the tower room, it felt like something out of a fairytale. I had the best experience!
Marianne is wonderful!!! Very warm and welcoming. She greeted me at the door and made the time to show me everything to the last detail, including how the shower faucets work. I loved that.
She's also a great conversationalist. Well-travelled. Delightful!
Staying with Marianne was like being with a friend. Her home is filled with beautiful art and she is extremely accommodating! She went out of her way to make my stay wonderful. She also happens to be a fascinating person who has lived all around the world.
Marianne was a caring host to me trying to make my stay as pleasant as possible. Nice talks in the morning am I found all comfort I expected from her ad. Her house is lovely in very very very good shape, don't hesitate to stay with her. And I love towers...
A very perfect stay.
What a great experience! The space was so beautifully designed and functional....Marianne thought of everything a guest might need to be comfortable in her space. I loved the breakfast and our (email hidden)e is such an amazing interesting woman!

Hi I'm Marianne and I love to travel. When I am home in California I enjoy working in my beautiful garden and I love to share my flowers with everybody. Everybody tells me my Mediterranean style home is the prettiest one in the neighborhood. I enjoy taking care of it and I welcome my guests. I am always happy to answer any questions you may have about the San Francisco Bay Area.
