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. We have had cats in our rental before but we throughly clean our place in between bookings. Fully furnished with full bed for adults, pottery barn chair and ottoman that will sleep one child and a fold away bed for another child. 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. 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. 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. Price to be negotiated. There is also a one time 75.00 cleaning fee for guests fortunate enought to stay with us longer than a month.
Interaction with Guests
We leave our guests alone unless they express an interest in socializing.
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.
It was my first try at AirBnB and it definitely won't be my last. Gary was very communicative being new to the system making it worry-free and easy to make a decision (at such last minute!). Their cute little spot is located in such a home-y neighborhood and was promised the quaint shops and coffee spots of the town. They work according to detail in your preferences of such. We also went to their recommended restaurants and found them so tasteful, we had a blast! Also, so close to hike spots, it made a getaway wknd that much better than staying at a hotel, as non-locals trying to blend in.
Gary was very kind and took lots of time to make sure we got acclimated into the cute rental space and had resources to explore the local area. Super hospitable!!
Fantastic host, super kind and gave us the lay of the land.
It was a romantic little joint that they put a lot of love and care into.
This was a perfect getaway for us! Just one night, but Gary and Susie made us feel very welcome in their home, and the listing was very accurate. It's a wonderful little space - homey and independent from the house, with a great mix of feeling welcome and given the right amount of space. Plus the donuts were truly fantastic. The neighborhood is great and we went for a day of hiking quite easily (China Camp State Park, Point Reyes, etc. all very accessible from here). Thanks for having us - we'd love to come back!
Gary and Susie were very welcoming and easy to connect with. Cute, cozy, studio apartment with a generous dose of welcoming treats. Hosts were very sensitive to personal needs. Nice walkable neighborhood close to healthy eating opportunities.
We had a lovely time at this cozy airbnb. Gary was exceptionally sweet and thoughtful — a truly wonderful host. The unit warm, clean, and comfy — exactly as the pictures depicted it. Can't wait to come back soon!
We arrived at dusk , but found the house number on the curbside. Gary met us at the door and showed me around. Susie arrived a few minutes later and entertained my husband. Gary and Susie made us feel like company, not borders, The rooms were quaint and well decorated with lots of little extras. Homemade muffins, fresh fruit and even some items in the frig for breakfast. In the bathroom were fresh yellow carnations. Our entry way was private and covered with flowers and vines. Our night stand had books on local history, hiking and attractions. Everything was well done.
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.
