"MaaMaw Susies" Bed & Donut Place

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Monterey Ave, San Anselmo, CA 94960, United States

The Space

. Cozy, attached inlaw unit with private entrance and patio. Full kitchen, and bath{no tub}. Fully furnished with full bed. Desk, chair with ottoman, closet and additional storage. Shared laundry room on site. 37 inch flatscreen t.v. internet ready. No smoking or pets please. The neighborhood is very quiet. Minutes to huge park and shopping center. Significant price reductions for extended stays longer than one month. The room is a classic studio where you will cook, sleep, and work. The other rooms other than the main room is where the closet and small but very functional bathroom are. There is a private entrance on the side of our house that can also be used for a patio where we have supplied a small table and chairs. The kitchen is fully equiped for anything you need to cook except food. We do have condiments, coffee, salt, pepper, sugar, things like that..A complementary bottle of red or white wine and fruit will be waiting for you upon your arrival.

And of course, fresh homemade donuts. If you need something we have not thought of , just give us a call and you will be taken care of. During summer months, our pool will be open for our guests to enjoy. Times yet to be determined. This is probably way too much info, but i guess i just love to type! One more thing. The pics do not show your closet approx 3' wide x 4' deep x8' high closet, a slightly smaller linen closet, as well as a large cabinet with another small cabinet above it. Plenty of storage for a small unit. We have also opted out with a full bed. In our opinion, a queen or king would be just too big for that room. If you need it, we also offer a very nice single aero bed that is not floor level. It sits up to a regular bed height. We also have a one car policy for either 1 or 2 guests. We have arranged the furniture in a way we think is most comfortable, however should you wish to rearrange things, feel free to do so. If you dont have a car, a truck could be made available to you during the weekday for no more than two hours a day and reserved in advance at an extra 100 dollars a month

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Upon arrival I was warmly welcomed by the hosts - Gary and Susie; thing is, it was a genuine warmth and it showed.

    Everything written on their host page about the lodging is exactly what I encountered. But the entry way is even prettier than the pictures and while the location is tucked away in a very quiet residential area, its proximity to a grocery store, mini shopping mall, parks, other recreation and public transportation is fantastic. Short-term stays will find it a great location for getting to and from the city of San Francisco and long-term stays will benefit even more with the all-inclusive package.

    This is real life so nothing is perfect but no matter what transpired, both Gary and Susie responded immediately to every inquiry or request that I had during my two-month reservation.

    So, to sum up my experience, the studio is a gem, the amenities are excellent, the bed is very comfortable (most important) and the hosts are truly so laid back that even I almost fell over.

    Thanks for a wonderful two months you two; if I could give 10 stars, I would!

  • Staying here was probably one of the best things about our entire trip! The room was wonderful, clean spacious, comfortable and had literally everything we needed. The kitchen was fully stocked with cooking supplies, dishes, spices, food, utensils and all the little extras. As an added bonus, Gary and his wife stocked the mini fridge with sodas, fresh fruit, fried chicken and homemade donuts for us!
    We had our own private entrance that was well lit with motion detector lights and we felt like we had the entire space all to ourselves(which really we did!).
    While we were only there for two nights, the room would also be perfect for someone looking to stay more long term.
    San Anselmo was also a wonderful place to have our homebase in, very close to San Rafael and Mill Valley so there is great dining and adventures to be had. It is also a pretty short drive into SF and (from what my friend who came to visit us in Marin said) a fairly easy bus ride as well.

    In short, we couldn't thank our hosts more for our wonderful Anniversary weekend and we highly recommend them to anyone looking for a perfect little get away.

  • Gary and Susie are absolutely wonderful hosts. The studio is clean, well-kept, well-furnished and quiet. It has its own entrance and walkway. The small kitchen is well-stuffed to serve your needs. The location is perfect if you want to stay in Marin that's still not too far from SF. Lots of good restaurants and shops within walking distance. The hosts are laid back and gracious. They made me feel welcome and made sure I had my privacy. I recommend this place to anyone without any reservation.

  • Small but perfectly formed! We had a great week, there is everything here you could need. Gary and Suzie were very welcoming, provided 2 bottles of wine, called for help with our computer and are lovely people. This quiet residential spot is only a short walk from town, stores and buses. Have a great time.

Hey everybody. I am retired with a wife still working. Golfing, swimming in our pool and letting my two grandaughters,take advantage of me, are my big priorities. My wife works in marin county for a non profit foundation. She is also a rather well known and accomplished artist working mostly in landscapes in and around marin. Our little unit has served us well through the years, and now we have decided to give other people a chance to enjoy. We have rented the unit out before, but that was more long term..Thought we would give shorter term visits a try. However we are not opposed to longer term relationships if that works as well. My wifes artwork will occasionaly adorn our little place. If one catches your interest, they are for sale at a significant price reduction to our guests.
