Entering through the classic Italian wrought iron entry doors takes you back in time to Europe in our Tuscan Villa. Authentic Old World wood detailing, many arches, rustic beams and barrelled ceiling make this a special place. Distressed maple flooring throughout with smooth plaster walls but with modern amenities. Interesting Architectural Kitchen with espresso cabinets, granite slab counters & high end stainless appliances.

The space
We adhere to guidelines for COVID safe preparations. Per Marin County Best Practices, 2 person MAXIMUM and outside visitors are NOT allowed.

A Smart 55" TV with TiVo DVR, Netflix, Amazon and YouTube above a 54” LED fireplace. Ample closet space in the living room. Barrel arched 11 foot tall ceiling with rustic oak beams and 5 arches complete the look of our Tuscan Villa. Thoughtful mood lighting with oversized chandelier and flickering candles make for an unforgettable and romantic vacation.

* THE INTERIOR OF THIS TUSCAN VILLA IS 100% PRIVATE AND NOT SHARED WITH ANYONE ~ There are NO Interior Doors that connect to another of our Suites ~ You have TOTAL Privacy.

There is a bistro table and chairs for Tuscan Villa guests to use exclusively by the entrance on the patio deck for outdoor dining but it is not enclosed so other guests may walk by the area. You may see us or another guest parking a car or on the shared deck, or using the stairs to the deck.

Guest access
Feel free to hang out on our 2,000 sq ft shared deck with patio lounge furniture, 4 hammocks for relaxing and bistro tables for outdoor dining.

Other things to note
To help muffle noise there are thick shag rugs with dense felt pad in the all rooms above. There is also a 2 Guest maximum policy for the Retreat AirBnB ABOVE this Tuscan Villa. The ceiling has double layered sheetrock with insulation between ceiling joists to further help with noise...
BUT if you are sensitive to noise disturbance, similar to living in an apartment, there may better AirBnB choices out there.

This Tuscan Villa has central air conditioning with a NEST thermostat to cool your Villa DOWN TO 72’ and heat UP TO 72’. It is locked outside of these temperature ranges. We have a split furnace / AC shared with other rooms in our home and therefore we can’t allow extremes of heat or cooling.

Location

San Rafael, California, United States

The San Francisco Golden Gate bridge is only 15 miles / 15 minutes south of us ~ in the fast lane at most times of the day. However traffic after 4pm coming out of San Francisco is heavy!

We are just 2 miles from the N San Pedro Hwy 101 freeway exit. We are half a mile from China Camp State Park beaches, hiking trails, and mountain biking.

The Sonoma Wine region begins at 23 minutes and Napa is 45 minutes away. A 30 minute ride on the high-speed ferry from Larkspur Landing (10 minutes away) and you can enjoy San Francisco without worrying about parking. There are ocean beaches in Marin and San Francisco 20-30 minutes from us.

Markets ~ 7-Eleven is a mile away and Santa Venetia market is 2 miles with a good deli. Safeways is one exit north at 3 miles. There is Trader Joe's, Whole Foods, Nugget and Sprouts Farmers Market within 10 minutes.

Restaurants ~ Le Chalet Basque is walking distance and at 2 miles you have Bogie's Cafe for breakfast and Subway. At 2.5 miles there is Ristorante La Toscana, an upscale Italian and Gaspare's Pizzeria is excellent too. Taqueria Hacienda serves casual Mexican. 3 miles away is Chipotle Mexican Grill, BJ's Brewhouse, Applebee's, Panda Express, Tomatina, Panera Bread and Roadside BBQ. These are at the Northgate Mall and there is casual fast food available also.

Every Thursday and Sunday morning there is a Farmers Market (3rd biggest in California). It's behind the County building with the blue roof. Turn right at the traffic light just before the freeway and then left to drive under the County building.
