I loved staying with Faustin. The space comes completely as advertised: unique, peaceful, among the trees. Faustin is very sweet, with offers for breakfast and accommodation.
The tower room was amazing! Settled high amongst the redwoods and surrounded by every plant and flower you could imagine. Faustin was an amazing host and extremely accommodating. For those seeking an eclectic, ethereal, magical place to stay this is it. Faustin is an inspiring unique host full of interesting tidbits of San Francisco and many of it's movements. We can't wait to go back and spend more time with her amongst the backdrop of redwoods and magic.
This was a miracle...
I showed up in San Rafael for a training and since the time of my registration a week earlier, all the hotels were sold out!
My boyfriend hustled online and thanks to Air B&B found me this tree house place while in the middle of my first day of training.
I was feeling grateful to have a place to stay and excited to explore a new adventure.
It was an amazing ONE OF A KIND experience. Faustin is fascinating and a real sweetheart with a great attitude! She went above and beyond to accommodate me! Her Treehouse in the Redwoods blew my mind! if you want to be somewhere special and unique and have an experience you will always remember, then this is the place for you!
There is still so much more to discover and I hope to visit again soon, not just for the surreal and rustic treehouse, but to meet my beautiful new friend, Faustin!
PS i would tell you more amazing details, but i think it is nice to allow some of the magic to reveal itself. ; )
