The space

THE ONLY BED AND DONUT PLACE IN MARIN COUNTY [i believe]NOV AND DEC HOLIDAYS BOOK EARLY, WE FILL UP FAST! We can accomodate 3 ADULTS IN OUR STUDIO. 1 FULL BED AND ONE ROLLAWAY BED. 3 PEOPLE IS A LITTLE TIGHT BUT MORE THAN DOABLE. WE WOULD LIKE A 7 DAY MINIMUM DURING CHRISTMAS WEEK. Eggs, toast, bacon, o.j. complimentary on your first morning with us, as well as your choice of red or white wine on your first nite. [ You cook it yourself ] [not the wine. And of course " DONUTS "! . [ No cooking necessary either ] We believe we have one of the premiere rentals on airbnb in our price range because of our attention to detail and our desire to make our guests as happy and comfortable as possible. Our reviews speak for them selves(URL HIDDEN)Fully furnished with full bed for adults and pottery barn chair. and a fold away bed for another child or adult Full kitchen, clothes closet and additional storage. Shared laundry room on site , fifteen feet from your front porch. 37 inch flatscreen t.v. internet ready. No smoking inside. Pets will be considered. The neighborhood is very quiet. Minutes to huge park and shopping center. 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. You have a private entrance on the side of our house with a front porch, 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. A countertop oven has also been added. Sorry no dishwasher. We do have condiments, coffee, salt, pepper, sugar, things like that as well.

If you need something we have not thought of , just give us a call and you will be taken care of. This is probably way too much info, but i guess i just love to type! 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. 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. Sorry, no cats

We believe that the use of " COMMON SENSE" is our golden rule. This, we believe allows for alot of flexibility, but also carries some responsibility as well. We believe we offer a much better alternative to the low and mid budget motels around our area, however, it is a private residence. We are about as laid back a people as you will ever find. So laid back, we somtimes fall over. There are basicly no rules, just good old common sense. One last thing, we are very sorry but we are unable to accommodate people with walkers or wheelchairs. Dogs horses gorillas bears yes! No cats !

This is a sweet and cozy little apartment, perfect for a single person or couple. Gary and Susie offer lots of special touches that make you feel at home. The kitchen is well equipped for making meals in-house, the grocery story is a 5 minute walk away. Downtown San Anselmo is a 10 minute walk. There is a bit of sound intrusion from their attached house but I didn't feel any loss of privacy. I will definitely stay there again.

We had a relaxing stay at Gary & Maamaws. It was truly a gift. They helped us tremendously after the fire with housing at a reduced rate and we felt at home right away. Everything you need is provided with a fun tour to kick it off! Can't wait to come back! We walked around the neighborhood and fell in love with Marin! Thanks for everything!

The location of the place is wonderful. You are near a park, trails, and a shoopping center with good restaurants, coffee, and groceries. Gary and Susie are great hosts, and the unit is just as described. They have thought of all sorts of nice touches such as wine, flowers, fluffy towels, books, good things to eat, and materials to read about the area. A plus is that they accepted our small dog. We will come back.

Gary and Susie's place is a rare value. Very quiet/private/clean, and well equipped. We have been disappointed many times in airbnb, with misleading photos, descriptions, etc., but this place is a grand slam. We will certainly return when we visit our daughter & son in law. A far greater value than any motel/hotel.

Thanks so much for the wonderful review. We work hard to give our guests a sense of being home when they're not. Your graciousness makes our work all worthwhile.

We really enjoyed Susie and Gary's place. A nice selection of breakfast goodies carried us for about 2 days and 10 mins walking to great restaurants and Safeway. Susie is amazingly prompt at communication!! Shower and toilet are quirky, but not a big deal at all. Great deal given the location and proximity to outdoor activities. Overall this was a wonderful find!

MaMaw is the name our grandchildren call my wife Susie, hence the name MaMaw Susies. Our place was used by our parents as they grew older and needed help, and now, for the last four years we have opened up our little place to airbnb. The extra money helps, dont get me wrong, but since we have been doing this our guests have given us so much more than just money. Its the smile on their faces when they see our place and know they are warm, safe and comfortable. We also have donuts , Something all our guests can enjoy on their first nite with us. She is also somewhat famous in marin for her landscape paintings, some of which adorn our little place. Now me,[Gary], well i basically do what MaMaa says, swim with our grandkids, play some golf, and take care of anything our guests may need. We also have another cabin on our property for guests as well. And, as my viking ancestors would say, "May the wind be at your back and your bellys full" Hope to see you down the road. Gary and Susie.
