The space

Our stunning 3 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 is a lively town for only 7,000 residents. We have 3 live music venues, a wine bar, 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, an XBox... and so much more. The adult bedroom has a European Sleepworks mattress. We have a gourmet stove (and AGA), too.

We really enjoyed our long weekend in the Star House in Fairfax. It is in a beautiful location and the house held lots of fun surprises, from the gas fire pit up on the hillside to the ping pong table in the basement. There was plenty of room for us and our three adult children. The kitchen is connected to the living space so we spent a lot of time cooking, chatting and hanging out together there. The floors are connected by ladders, which is entertaining if a bit challenging at times! There are outside stairs for those who may be less able, and this house would not be a good fit for people with mobile disabilities. The neighborhood is very interesting and the shops and restaurants in Fairfax were a 15 minute walk away, which we enjoyed.

It's really generous of Lisa and her husband to share their fantastic home. Lisa was welcoming us with open arms and they really want you to enjoy the house like they do. The house in on a beautiful location, with amazing views. Fairfax at it's best! We enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate to rent the house again.

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!
