The Space

This large, sunny, quiet room (20 ft by 10ft) with hardwood floors, has a Queen sized bed and a sitting area. The couch opens up to a double bed and can accomodate an additional person. Room includes your own private bathroom, hair dryer and toiletries. A light breakfast of coffee/tea, cereal, yogurt, fruit are provided. There is free WIFI. There is also a beautiful brick patio garden in the back yard to enjoy the sunshine and read a book. Feel free to enjoy cable TV in our family room.

Our 2800 sq ft.home is 20 minutes north of the Golden Gate Bridge, 30 minutes to downtown Sonoma, 30 minutes to Berkeley and an hour from the Napa Valley. It is an ideal location for people attending conferences at the Marin Civic Center. There is plenty of street parking and hiking trails right out the door. We are walking distance to a small shopping center with a great market, several restaurants, Yoga studio, ice cream, a post office and nail salons. There's an abundant Farmer's Market nearby at Frank Lloyd Wright's Civic Center on Thursdays and Sundays. The city of San Rafael is just 10 min. away by car and offers an independent movie theater and lots of restaurants and bars. The house is a short drive away from Sausalito, Mill Valley, Larkspur, Novato and Petaluma.

There is a cat who resides in the home.

Although there is public bus transportation into SF walking distance from our home, it only runs during rush hour. There are other buses to the Ferry and to the San Rafael bus terminal where you can transfer to other buses. However, having a car would be preferable for getting around as the buses do not run very often.

The cleaning fee is $20 for stays of up to two weeks. An additional cleaning fee of $10 will be charged for each additional week or part thereof. A third person is limited to stays of up to 5 nights.

  • Nancy was a wonderful hostess. She made us feel right at home. She provided us with breakfast and fresh plums from her tree (DELICIOUS). The room was just as advertised, very spacious. The house was easy to find and an easy drive from San Francisco.

  • Nancy is a great host with a beautiful house which was a pleasure to return to each day. Our room was large, very clean and well appointed. The area is lovely and convenient to shopping and getting around with a car. There is a lovely park within a five-minute walk where we went each morning. Nancy was always available to answer our questions about restaurants, shopping and directions. We had a great time not only visiting our grandchildren which was the purpose of our trip, but returning to a quiet, peaceful and aesthetic surrounding. I rate this very highly, true to the listing and more than we expected.

  • Such a beautiful home. Such a lovely hostess. We had a very comfortable stay. The bed was a bit squeaky and wiggles a lot when partner turns over. But overall .... Delightful. Loved Noodle the kitty!!

    April 2014
  • Nancy was a wonderful host. She made me feel like I was right at home. I enjoyed a delicious home cooked dinner with her when I arrived the first night. The bedroom was comfortable and perfect for my needs. I look forward to staying there again, and recommend her home to others.

  • Nancy is a warm and welcoming hostess who opens up her house and shares it generously. A very quiet neighborhood ensures a good night's sleep. We appreciated the couch opening up into a second bed and the room spacious enough to accommodate that.

  • Nancy was a great hostess, provided all my favorite breakfast items. She even set up the coffeemaker the night before so all I had to do was press a button. I'd definitely recommend her and her place.

  • I was attending a conference nearby and my boyfriend and I stayed with Nancy for three nights. She was a very welcoming host and was so nice to allow us full use of her kitchen. The bedroom was large and comfortable. The only downside was that the bed frame was really noisy and would creak whenever one of us would make the slightest motion while sleeping- so our rest wasn't as good as it could have been. If you are staying solo, it's probably not as much of an issue.

  • We were very happy spending six nights in Nancy's beautiful house. She was the perfect hostess, had a generous spread of breakfast food ready for us, gave information when we asked for it. It was a perfect match in interacting, yet allowing each party to keep their privacy. Highly recommended.

About
I've lived in the Bay Area since 1977, a transplant from New York. I love the Bay Area and Marin County has so much natural beauty to enjoy. I am an executive recruiter in the Biotech field and work out of my home office. I particularly like going to the Farmers Market just across the freeway from my home to shop for the freshest of fruit, veggies and fish. I enjoy cooking, traveling and dancing West Coast Swing.
