House - Entire home/apt · Rancho Dr, Tiburon, CA 94920, United States

The Space

Convenient base for your Bay Area visit - three full bedrooms with 3 full baths (3 bath tubs & 2 showers), large living room, large dining room, spacious kitchen with dining nook and deck with gas BBQ and dining set with umbrella. This Spacious Tiburon home is just minutes from the 101, and only 10 minutes from the Golden Gate Bridge. Perfect location with access to bike paths to downtown Tiburon (and the Ferry dock in Tiburon) and also to the Sausalito bike path, as well as a short walk to cafes (including Peets), grocery stores (right around the corner from the new Paradise Foods), restaurants, salons, and other shopping. Lots of off street parking, as well as free on street parking. Park like setting with lots of flowers and trees, and ample privacy. Includes high speed internet, local phone service, and flat panel television, with Blu-ray DVD player, several stereo systems (with ipod hook-up), Comcast cable (including HD-DVR, sports & premium channel packages). Perfect relaxed and spacious alternative for your family or other gathering, and much more enjoyable and economical than renting 2 or 3 hotel rooms for your visit to San Francisco or Marin. The master bedroom features a Cal King with luxurious high thread-count bedding, while one guest room features a Queen bed also with high TC bedding, and a third guest room features a Twin trundle bed, and there is a fold-out European luxury sleeper sofa in the living room - plenty of room for up to 8 guests, but perfect for 4 to 6. If you don't mind having an aerobed in the living area, then 10 is the maximum. Large kitchen is fully equipped with all the equipment a gourmet would need to cook a feast. Your gracious host will be available to answer any questions you may have, yet unobtrustive and stays elsewhere. Come stay for the weekend or a month or more.

  • While Ben is a decent person it's important to note that he is NOT the owner of this property, he's subletting it to multiple parties as the original leasee. This in itself is not a bad thing but it does impact his willingness to fix problems in a timely manner if it requires any expense on his part. As such there were multiple levels of failure with this home including leaks from the upstairs to the downstairs, ant invasions which coursed through the bathrooms, kitchen, living and master bedroom, non-functioning Internet and dryer, a washer which reeks of mold etc... On the things Ben could fix without outlaying cash - he did, in a reasonable but not timely manner. In the things he wasn't willing to pay for, like ant invasions requiring a professional exterminator, he didn't - although he did suggest we put all of our food in the fridge and wipe everything down with bleach. Or not using the bathroom shower which leaked. Since we didn't keep food in the bathrooms or bedrooms we were at a loss at how to deal with that kind of problem. The bottom line is this is a great place if you want to spend all your time exploring SF, Marin or Wine Country and only use this home to sleep. It's not the kind of place you want to live in and Ben is not the kind of person who's an exemplary landlord - because he's not a landlord - just someone looking to make a buck off his lease.

  • Great rental house for our family during month+ remodel!

    Benjamin was a terrific host, and he was very responsive to our few inquiries/questions. The rental unit is spacious, well-equipped, and located less than 5 minutes from US-101 making our morning commutes a breeze.

    Beds in the 3 bedrooms were comfortable and clean. Kitchen had knives, pots, pans, dishes etc for cooking and hosting meals.

    Very quiet neighborhood and extremely respectful neighboring tenants made this a peaceful stay.

    Many thanks!
