The Space

Our stunning 2 bedroom home is 3 minutes to some of the best mountain biking and hiking in the U.S. We are in Fairfax, CA which is in Southern Marin, about 35 minutes from SF, 30 minutes from Point Reyes and 45 minutes to wine country. Fairfax is one of the sunniest spots in Marin and (email hidden)ly town for only 7,000 residents. We have 3 live music (email hidden), a brewery, a Thai restaurant, an Indian restaurant, the best natural foods grocery store in the county and MUCH more.

Our special home has hard wood floors throughout, windows everywhere looking onto the mountains. The house is quiet and set up high, but a 12 minute walk to town, or a 5 minute bike ride to town. The Star House, as we call it, is in the shape of Jewish star... you can't tell when you are inside but you can see it from our spectacular yard which sits behind the house. The yard has veggies, a lawn and terrace with a hammock and the most delicious view of Mt. Tam.

The Star House is set up for kids... 2 kid's rooms, a trampoline in the yard, a ping pong table in our playroom. We have 2 flat screen TVs, a Wii... bikes to borrow... and so much more. The adult bedroom has a European Sleepworks mattress. We have a gourmet stove (and AGA), too.

  • We really enjoyed our time in the Star House, which indeed is special in many ways, its unusual architecture, its friendly and open design, its wonderful views and nice garden area. Being there a couple of summer days it has very quickly turned out the be an ideal base not only for Fairfax, a nice little town in the area, but also to explore greater S.F. area at all. Although never met personally, Lisa was a very nice host, trustful, responsive, reliable and - in the word's best sense - uncomplicated. Thanks for all ...

  • We LOVED the Star House. Beautiful. Great location and perfect home base to explore Fairfax and Marin. We fell in love with the sweet town of Fairfax. Lisa was so easy to work with and responsive. Our kids enjoyed the ladders to each of the different levels of the house-cool idea! Also, the view from both the house and the seating area up the hill is stunning. We highly recommend!

  • I stayed at Lisa's place during the winter break and it was ideal for many reasons. It was situated in a secluded, quiet house with absolutely beautiful views. It was also, for our needs close enough to San Francisco, Napa but a little bit away from too much urban activity. Fairfax is also a lovely, friendly town with cute restaurants and cafes.
    The house was quite airy and the open kitchen area was nice to be able to share a communal space. We did go in winter so it's too bad we couldn't enjoy more of the outdoor spaces, but nonetheless, it was a great experience. Lisa was clear and easy to communicate with and made the transaction quite easy.

  • We have a 2-year old toddler and this house was perfect for us! Fairfax is a lovely small town - great local restaurants, parks and lots of trees. The "star" house is filled with air and light and has such an amazing view of the surrounding mountains that you would be totally happy not venturing out. We did take a few day trips though (late July) - Muir Woods, Point Reyes, Sausalito, Napa and Golden Gate Park - all of the the drive times were between 30 - 45 minutes. The hosts were lovely and we really enjoyed the yard, which includes gardens, gorgeous mountain views and a trampoline. The kitchen is super roomy and inviting. Fairfax is far enough from the Golden Gate to avoid too much fog and marine layer, we enjoyed sunny mornings. This was our first Airbnb trip and it was stellar. We would happily stay at this location again! Fairfax = relax!

  • My family and I had the great pleasure to rent the Start House of Fairfax for nine days during the winter holidays. We loved it and would do it again. The house if fun, and has the most beautiful views of the mountains. And the town of Fairfax is Groovy. Lisa and Sam are great hosts. And the house was everything and more as per their listing in airBnB. So 5 stars!
