We know the bay area well and would be happy to help plan activities for you if you like. $185/night (up to 2 people). You will have the whole floor to yourself for privacy.
Just please be respectful of our stuff and have fun!
Hedi and Michael were very accommodating hosts, from providing directions to their house prior to arrival, to taking us to local markets and
preparing fantastic breakfasts. We enjoyed the best views in Marin County and enjoyed the sanctuary like quality to their location, not mention the owl
who visited during our stay and the nearby hiking trail.
Hedi and Mike were lovely hosts. The view was amazing and close by to so many scenic areas though house is very secluded and gated. Pastries from a local shop were a nice touch on our last morning there. Very hospitable and we only regret that we were not on vacation longer. We recommend staying here and would stay again when in San Rafael again!
We had a GREAT stay with Hedi and her husband Michael. Hedi was fast to respond to my messages and very accommodating with checkin/checkout.
The house itself is at the end of a wooded road and the views are breathtaking. You have complete privacy (even with the windows open) and are surrounded by lush greenery on all sides. For breakfast, Michael prepared delicious omelettes, coffee, tea, and grabbed some pastries. We wanted to go for a hike, so Hedi offered to take us and we ended up walking for a couple hours through the woods and up the hillside.
If you're looking for a quick getaway from the city, this is the perfect retreat.
