this is a very private room in a great neighborhood, within walking distance of many restaurants and shops in downtown San Rafael. Joe is super friendly, very helpful. I wish the bed was a little more comfortable - it's a sofa bed - but it was comfortable enough. I highly recommend this.
Thx, my pleasure. It was good chatting with you, hope you come again.
Joe was waiting for me in front of the house when I arrived and offered to help me with my bags. I found him to be amiable. The guest house is pretty basic and had what I needed for my weekend trip...a reasonably comfortable sofa bed, private bathroom, and most importantly, peace and quiet. It was a good size for one person. Their home and guest house are located in a safe and quiet neighborhood. I would say the only minor drawback is the musty smell.
Glad you had a good stay. We will give a thorough cleaning and freshening up.
Had a great stay. Wonderful location. Everything was taken care of and effortless. Host was easily available if I needed anything. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to stay in the area.
Thx Aaron. It was a pleasure. Please come again.
Great location near downtown on a quiet, tree-lined street. Parking was easy. The studio was just as described, clean and comfortable. The fridge, table and chairs were appreciated.
Michael is was our pleasure. Please come again.
Joe's guest house was really quite the perfect place for me to be during what turned out to be a very exhausting three day seminar. I could come back to the space and enjoy nothing but solitude and peace until it was time to get going for the next session. While a bit snug with the bed unfolded, it was well fitted out so I didn't have to leave to eat out etc. This was very appreciated as I had no energy to either find a restaurant or deal with wait staff and such.
Probably the most valued part of my stay was the help I was given when I discovered, much to my surprise, that I had left my suitcase in Sacramento (a two hour drive away). Even though she was pressed for time as she needed to leave to go to work, Joe's wife went back in the house and found a robe and something for me to sleep in from her own wardrobe. With them and a few things from the drug store I was able to muddle through.
Thank you Joe. It was another GREAT stay.
Thank you, Gina!
Great place. located on beautiful street within walking distance to main transit center. Clean quiet and safe. I highly recommend Joes place.
Pros: Location was GREAT. Easy to find. Awesome neighborhood and very quiet. Close to everything. Host very helpful in pointing out locations. Felt private though immediately next door to host. WiFi.
Cons: Studio is smaller than it looks in photos. Best suited for a single person. Two people + two bikes and one small bag made moving around difficult. A bit run down.
Yes, it is too small for 2 bikes and 2 people, sorry.
Joe's place was clean and fully equipped for a comfortable stay! Joe is very friendly and welcoming. The guest house is next to their beautiful garden and the neighborhood is very nice. At first I was a little worried about the futon mattress but it was actually more comfortable than I had expected. My partner and I stayed here for a couple of nights over the 4th of July weekend because we wanted to get out of the city and check out the Marin County Fair. It was a nice stay and I would definitely recommend it.
Staying at Joe Tassone's guest house was a perfect experience for me. I never actually met my hosts, but we communicated via text and Joe was very responsive. I came in late on a Friday and the room was already prepared; I didn't even have to buy soap (though there is a convenient Safeway nearby). I had a bit of jet lag and was able to sleep in the next morning. I felt very safe leaving my stuff there as I came and went over the next few days.
The place is small, with a fold out sofa bed, dorm-sized refrigerator, toaster oven, and a surprisingly large TV (I did not use any of those appliances, but nice to know that they were there). The bed is not overly comfortable, but was good enough for this tired guy. In the morning, I saw that the view out of the bathroom window was of their lush and lovely vegetable garden.
Being left alone and feeling free to come and go was exactly what I needed, so I can recommend this place for anyone who has those same needs.
Thx, Sean. Hope to meet next time you are in time.
Although we didn’t have a chance to meet Joe in person, he took good care of the condo and even proactively took care of something that went wrong. He's the kind of renter that makes AirBnB so unique. We would love to have him again!
Thanks for the great stay....and I forgot to mention the condo is nicely decorated.
