About This Listing
This new detached studio cottage is located behind our home and offers comfortable accommodations in a small town neighborhood. The room includes a king size bed, private bathroom with tub, kitchenette with sink, microwave and coffee pot (no stove), and large flat screen TV.
We are interested in sharing this cottage with select VACATIONERS who are visiting the area from other parts of the country or world. We particularly enjoy meeting tourists from other countries. (Please note: We are not hosting relocators or bay area weekend warriors)
It's a 5-10 minute walk to quaint downtown San Anselmo which has many nice small shops, restaurants and coffee houses. We are very near the bicycle route toward Samuel P Taylor, Point Reyes and Spirit Rock Meditation Center.
Off street parking available for one small car and/or two bicycles.
We only accept guests who have completed their Airbnb profile. So we ask that you please do this before you contact us. See http://www.airbnb.com/help/question/hosting/67 When you respond, please include enough information about you, your travel plans, etc. so we can get an idea of who we will be inviting to our home. This accommodation is for non-smokers only. We are sensitive to the smell of smoke permeated in clothing and fabrics so you must not have smoked anything for at least one month prior to arriving. The maximum stay is usually limited to about 3 nights but you can message us if you have something different in mind.

This was our second stay at the Cozy Cottage and we had an excellent time. The cottage was clean, beautiful, peaceful and extremely comfortable and the neighborhood charming and packed with good restaurants. Laura was a very helpful host - always getting back to us on any questions within seconds of texting her. She also provided us with lots of suggestions for places to eat and go for a walk. A pleasure as always! We will be back!
The cottage was adorable -- exactly as pictured and described. Clean, cozy, quiet, pretty! Laura was awesome. Very accommodating and helpful. Bed was super comfy and shower perfect. (Bath, too, if one prefers). Most of the lights had dimmers -- big plus for me!
Located in a quiet, safe neighborhood. Close to everything, yet offers an experience of restfulness. Hosts are there when you need them, but are perfectly respectful of a guest's privacy.
We had a fantastic time staying at Laura and Darren’s cottage. The cottage was super clean, very quiet, and a welcome escape from the normal Silicon Valley hustle and bustle. Laura was very welcoming and helped us get setup upon arrival, and their dog Bo is very friendly as well. The bed is very comfortable and everything worked as expected. We would definitely stay here again.
About the Host, Laura & Darren
Airbnb seems like a nice concept. We enjoy meeting new people but admittedly we are not necessarily expecting to meet lots of new friends through Airbnb. For the most part, our lives are pretty full with work, kids, and a dog. So, you may or may not see us much. However, we think it's a shame that our pretty little guest cottage sits empty most of the time (unless our parents are visiting), so Airbnb seems like a nice way to share it with nice people from all over the world.
Laura loves a good 5 star hotel near a warm beach. Darren loves roughing it by backpacking to "off the beaten path" destinations, but is quite happy to compromise and stay in Laura's vacation spots.
We both live by the motto: "Be kind and considerate whenever possible, and ... it's always possible". We hope you feel the same way.
