About This Listing
Welcome to our beautiful home. Nestled in the hills, the view gives you a scenic picture of both San Francisco and Mount Tamalpais of Marin (especially gorgeous since the sun sets right over the mountain). Its centrally located for trips into San Francisco or Wine Country.
We love this home for a few major reasons. 1. An amazing view of both San Francisco and Marin. 2. A completely peaceful location that's close to a vast regional park system. 3. The amazing light from a full southern exposure. (We actually checked during all times of the day before we bought!)
Our spacious home includes:
2 full bathrooms
Open floor-plan living room/kitchen/dining room
The square footage is ~1600 sq. ft. and includes a two car garage as well as new laundry units (all to yourself!). The kitchen is fully equipped with beautiful cookware and dishware and the entertainment center includes a 42" TV, blu-ray player, sound system, xbox360, and an assortment of great games both electronic and of the boarded variety. We're interested in getting our first airbnb renters so we're keeping the price incredibly low for now. It seems like many other places only rent a single room, but this actually a home!

Interaction with Guests
I'll be staying in one room at the house. I'd be happy to give you suggestions for sights, places to go, and the best local places to eat!
No shoes in the house, no smoking, and no open flames.
We love our home. We hope that you will fall in love with it also and treat it like your own. :)
What a great house! Everything is clean, organized and well-prepared. Carl, our host, is really nice and helpful. He even brought us little cake when we were arriving. He gave us a lot of useful advises such as great restaurants and places to go. I strong recommend Carl's place to stay for visiting San Francisco.
As I was there to work on a Catering job for locations, the kitchen was perfect! Roomy and lots of counter space. Carl is a nice as can be and was helpful in recommending great stores and places to dine also. Didn't get a chance to really take advantage of the area as was working! But all went very well!
